Brutus, even when his mind has good intention it is also littered with ignorance. Brutus had good intentions but his ignorance made him make not the best decisions. He had made many ignorant decisions because he did not want to listen to Cassius. The first time Brutus showed this trait was when Cassius warned Brutus many times about the danger of Mark Antony. Brutus simply thinks the good of people, not ever wondering if he does one action, if the other person might retaliate.
Although angry at his father, McCandless had less resentment for his mother and much less if any for his sister. He knows that they also loved him and cared for him, but he was able to leave with a clean conscience and allow them to live in worry and eventually agony and despair. His so called courages was actually an unrealistic point of view and a result of his not valuing his life. If only because of the selfishness of his actions, McCandless should not be admired
He says, that as a consequence of the way he was raised he is "inclined to reserve all judgements" about other people (page 5). His saying this makes it seem like we can trust him to give a fair unbiased account of the story that he is telling, but we later learn that he does not reserve all judgements. Nick further makes us feel that he is a non-partisan narrator by the way he tells of his past. We come to see that Nick is very partial in his way of telling the story. This is shown when he admits early in the story that he does not judge Gatsby because Gatsby had a "extraordinary gift for hope, a romanric readiness".
The Great Gatsby, Francis Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, was first published in 1925. It is a tale of love, loss, and betrayal set in New York in the mid 1920’s. It follows Nick Carraway, the narrator, who moves to Long Island where he spends time with his cousin, Daisy Buchanan, and meets his mysterious neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Nick can be viewed as the voice of reason in this novel. He is a static character that readers can rely on to tell the truth, as he sees it.
In Candy and George's case, however, the harm is deliberate, but not malicious. The "bitter" words that hurt Lennie are mostly used to help him because he cannot take care of himself. George, though he never admits that he loves his friend, acknowledges that he must occasionally be harsh to do good for Lennie. Sometimes hurting someone is necessary because of the love for the relationship, not in spite of it.
Because of his friendship and love for Gatsby, his view of the events is fogged and he is unable to look at the situation objectively. At the beginning of the book, Nick's dependability is demonstrated as he recounts various information about himself. He is “inclined to reserve all judgments”(1), a trait that implies objectivity and therefore reliability as a narrator. However, he continues to say that this reservation of judgment has certain limits, especially recently in his life. These limits, apparently, do not apply to Gatsby, as evidenced in the next line.
Donald Farfrae captures the aud... ... middle of paper ... ...n emotions and relationships, and though he is not the cause, he is an element of Michael Henchard's downfall. Farfrae makes one decision after another, which are good decisions in themselves, but have terrible consequences for Henchard. But through all of this turmoil he causes, he is completely innocent. He was simply being true to himself and does not mean to cause trouble. It is for this very reason that the audience cannot loathe Farfrae, as he is simply obtuse about certain areas of life.
Nick cannot relate to Gatsby because of their fundamental personality differences. Moreover, he disapproves of Gatsby's desire to impress Daisy at all costs. However, Nick continues to follow Gatsby because by doing so he can ensure his relationship with Jordan, a celebrity socialite, and because, in a perverse way, Nick can use Gatsby to bolster his own self-esteem. Nick expresses his opinion about Gatsby quite clearly: "I disapproved of him from beginning to end" (162). However, he makes this remark at the end of the novel and actually does like Gatsby when he first meets him.
While avoiding conflict isn 't something negative, he does it to a point where it seems as if he has no will. During his conversation with Veronica, she accuses him of being "quite cowardly" to which he responds that he thinks that "it 's more that [he 's] peaceable" (26). He doesn 't defend himself or ponder why he is accused of this. When he thinks about Annie, his ex-girlfriend, the most powerful memory he has of her is about how it was "easy come, easy go" (32). This relationship is the only one that Tony wishes he had pursued.
