Moreover, such devotion to the family creates the basis for Santino 's subsequent death because his image is complete and does not have the appropriate dynamism. Santino only seeks to protect the family at any cost; in the end, it leads him to betrayal. Santino also dies because he loves his sister too much and can not accept that her husband, his former friend, is hurting her. Santino Corleone in the eyes of the viewer is not a villain and not a murderer, and not a cruel person. He lived and died for the sake of the family, thus creating a glow of compassion for his
The mother in this is caring and always looks out for her son Sarty, like when he got hurt she would keep asking him “Does it hurt?” (Faulkner 263), so this story would have a whole different feel if she told it.

The act of selfishness enables him to be separated from Jewel and Darl, who, coincidentally have picked up this similar trait. On his way to Jefferson to bury his dead wife, a promise was made to Addie. He was promising to better himself as a whole, yet sadly his only concern on the journey to Jefferson was to buy him a new set of teeth. Despite any consideration of
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation.

She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Ethan’s initial response is to attempt to simply piece back the pickle dish with glue. The use of glue or “the easy route” to fix the broken pickle dish so Zeena won’t discover the accident, symbolizes Ethan’s thought process to try repairing their loveless relationship. Furthermore, Ethan is afraid to even tell Zeena that the dish has broken which shows the lack of communication and understanding in their relationship. Zeena’s response is much more dramatic, by intensely accusing Mattie of not only breaking her most prized possession, but also threatening her husband and their marriage. Zeena’s anger and resentment over the broken pickle dish actually illustrates her sorrow over her broken and unfulfilling marriage.

I can connect my thesis to my life, because last year my uncle got extremely sick, and almost died. When this happened, the fear of my uncle losing his life spread throughout my family eventually reaching
Psyche performs her deeds selflessly, always thinking of how her deeds could affect others, particularly Orual. When Psyche is called “Accursed” by the villagers, Orual proclaims that she will confront her father about the matter. Psyche prioritizes Orual’s physical well-being and stops her, murmuring, “Hush, sister, hush…I can’t bear it when he hurts you” (40). Psyche protects Orual with no regard to the circumstances. When she is faced with the challenge of protecting Orual from King
A simple ‘ how are you’ can have someone think you 're polite.

The men only show anger and think that showing compassion is a feminine thing (Shmoop Editorial Team 2008).
