Willy’s inability to succeed financially as expected from society in turn affects his two sons Biff and Happy and his loving wife Linda. Willy’s oldest son Biff is the most affected by his father’s failures. Biff is more affected by his father’s failure to his mother than his father’s financial failures. Biff’s whole life is ruined when he finds out that his father is cheating on his mother after all she has done for him. When Biff realizes that he has been idolizing a failure he is devestated.
Happy seemingly cares little for his father as an adult, as is obvious when he cho... ... middle of paper ... ...ed: each one layered on deep love and faith; lies and hurt. Willy gambles everything he has- and more- on Biff, even though he seems to hate his son at times. This is most likely because Willy knew Biff knew his dirty little secret, and could not stand to think that his actions may have harmed his child’s balance. Yet it is ironic that Willy Loman’s legacy, based on the insurance money- is not used by the son he loved best, but by the one who always came in second. It leaves the audience wondering if Happy loved his father more than the worshipped Biff, or if Biff loved his father so much he could not stand to touch the money, knowing that his father had killed himself solely for his benefit.
Huck reveals all the typical qualities of a ‘bad boy’, while retaining his inner compassion. Through analysis of Huck and other characters in American Literature, we can come to a conclusion that the ‘bad boy’ is usually a character that is non-conforming to society, such as in religion, school, and moral standards, while retaining their compassion inside. Although these rebellious boys may look tough and scary on the outside, on the inside they actually have a good heart and are able to have feelings such as remorse, regret, love, and compassion for others. In addition, there is a thin line between the American bad boy that we all know and love, and truly a bad person. Both come off tough on the outside, but it is the inner character that will separate ‘the men from the boys’.
'Bart' the families son is a brat, of course being the boy of the family they make him out to be the trouble maker mainly because most families direct evidence of mischief to the boy because they are more curiouse or perhaps more unaware of the consequences which come along with right and wrong actions but they may also simply not care. Bart vandalizes things, humiliates several members of the schools faculty, steals items from stores and dis-respects his parents. All this seems quit bad for a children show but Barts softer side does come around once in awhile, for every wrong thing he does it later shows his guilt and the punishments that come along with misbehaving. 'Lisa' the families most prevailed member of the family, is of a much higher intelligence then the rest of the family and is not blind of her families social class and immmature behaviour excluding Marge. Lisa, however still loves her family and even though they irritate and ignore or fail to notice her natural talent and integrity she knows this is who they are and she most except this.
Push the Bully is not a bad person. In fact, no matter how ironic this may sound given his name or how mean some of the things he does to others in the story may seem, Push is actually a good person with good intentions. He may appear mean and cruel, but he bullies kids with the purest of intentions at heart: to give a voice and to acknowledge and recognize the people in society who are shunned or thought of as other. Push’s desire to do good results in him using unorthodox methods to acknowledge those who are conventionally ignored and attempts to make those kids feel comfortable in their own skin and eventually culminates with him getting into a fight with John Williams. Push disowns conventional standards, while acknowledging that they exists.
Mark Twain uses the story to reveal his own childhood; as a result, many details in the book, such as the characters and the setting are very dear to his heart. The story is about life in a boy's world, it tells about the feelings Mark Twain had regarding his childhood, his town, and the people that lived there. The time period is about twenty years before the Civil War, and the setting is in St. Petersburg, Missouri, a small community on the Mississippi River. The main character in the book is Tom Sawyer. Throughout the book, the author compares himself to Tom and his adventures.
However, from the very beginning of the novel, Huck clearly states that he does not want to conform to society. "The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me...I got into my old rags and my sugar hogshead again, and was free and satisfied." (page 1) Huck says this shortly after he begins living with the Widow Douglas because it is rough for him to be confined to a house and the strict rules of the Widow Douglas. Huck’s father, a dirty and dishonest drunk, was also a problem. He was so angry that his son could read, that he severely beat him and then forced him to stay in a secluded cabin.
He is like a child who only enjoys tumbling down the blocks of other children; he is the play-yard bully. When asked why, the bully generally shrugs and says "I don’t know." Similarly when asked why, Iago's response is just as simple: "What you know, you know." [Act V, Scene 2, Line 302] And Iago knew why; and he knew how. Iago most honestly confesses to Emily "I told him what I thought, and told no more than what he found himself was apt and true" [Act V, Scene 2, Line 175] The unspoken line comes next: they believed what they wanted—they are the guilty not I. Iago is a crafty, intelligent, manipulative school-yard bully, who is motiveless at each move.
He is viewed as the bad guy, only because Hamlet is the good guy and we all take Hamlet’s side throughout the play. His daughter, Ophelia is mesmerized by Hamlet’s love and always runs to her father with her problems. Although she doesn’t see anything wrong with the way Hamlet feels about her, Polonius sees it differently. He thinks that Hamlet has gone mad, and that what he is feeling for Ophelia is a result of that, not love. After a confrontation with Hamlet, Ophelia comes to her father, seeming scared, and says that “To speak of horrors / he comes before me” (2.1.92).
His dad is too harsh and hard to converse with, and his mom is overprotective and tries his understanding. Dana connects the two. She demonstrates generosity to Rufus, yet she likewise discloses to him how to carry on when he accomplishes something that insults her or appears to be off-base. Her readiness to amend Rufus and help him conveys him nearer to her, in any event amid his youth. Dana's connection to Rufus as a tyke challenges the pursuer’s reaction to him as a grown-up later in the novel.
