man conflict with his teacher. In the beginning of the book when Matt receives a teacher, he finally gets fed up with her enough that he, “grabbed Teacher’s carefully arranged apples and hurled them every which way” (Farmer 73). This conflict changes Matt 's character and gives him hope as Matt says, “And then the children would like him and they wouldn 't run away” (74). This implies that Matt feels the need to be accepted by others. This man vs. man conflict has changed Matt by causing him to speak, and to be proud of himself.
In the end, I ran.” (Hosseini 77). Amir obviously shook by seeing his best friend raped, did not know how to react in the situation. Therefore, his fight or flight instincts kicked in and he ran off still in a state of shock. Perhaps the reason he never told Hassan was that he felt guilty that he did not do anything for him but ran. Even then, he just acted even worse than before, not changing for the better but for the worse.
This affected Simon a lot he only wanted his parents to love him. In these stories two unordinary people defy the odds and prove people wrong. They were always the underdogs and people didn't like them although they didn't try to understand them. Simon was also fortunate to have a caring brother who treated him right unlike Doodle’s selfish brother. They are also always happy and never down.
He puts effort into teaching Doodle to walk and swim, but even then he is cruel to his brother. He is not helping Doodle out of compassion but because it is more convenient in the long run. However he can not abandoned Doodle quick enough when Doodle fails his expectations. Ambition can be valuable but ambition is most valuable in the face of adversity. If the narrator had handled his disappointment in Doodle with poise his brother would not be dead.
After reading the Scarlet Ibis for homework we came into class and discussed. Many good points and counterpoints were made throughout. We discovered that the narrator was a selfish boy who was very worried about his reputation and how people saw him. In the story it said, “Doodle only walked because I was ashamed to have a crippled brother.” That shows that even the narrator saw how horrible he was being yet he continued on.The reader can now tell that the narrator had strong feelings of disgust toward his brother’s disability. Maddy had a theory that the boy never liked Doodle in the first place.
Despite hurting many people, Gene is actually suffering the most from his own insecurities which contributes to his emotional struggle. Therefore, although Gene makes many mistakes, he cannot be seen as inherently evil because he acts out of a lack of understanding of himself rather than
Some people might think that Tybalt is not a bully because he very protective and loyal who can do whatever it takes to accomplish his family’s duty. But I believe that he needs to control his actions and think before he acts. Being cocky and full of yourself does not bring you a good result after all and that's exactly what happened to him. Another reason that Tybalt is bully because he feels a great sense of hatred towards the montague family because he believes that they are dangerous for the capulet family. His hatred is clear and certainly strong about the Montague on Act 1, scene I “What, drawn, and talk of
The reason why I think August Pullman is nice is because even though he knew about the circumstances that going to school would put him in he still went because his parents had wanted him to go. In my opinion that takes some guts to do. Also after the incident that happened to with him and his best friend Jack Will where Jack Will said something mean about Auggie, he still showed up and carried on with his school life. Also he tried to talk his way out of getting a beating by the 7th graders that were bothering him and Jack even though they were two times his size. This what I think August’s character traits
