Greg Valentine- Professor Greg Valentine was a man who very much like Jay Morgan was not very trustworthy at all. All though Professor Valentine was not trustworthy many people would often seek him for advice because of his very caring personality. Professor Valentine was a man who was easy to talk to and often gave very good advice on complex situations.
He was blunt and loud in stating his first impression of Elizabeth, that she was not attractive. He also gave his honest opinion to Bingley that Jane did not really care for him and was socially below him. However, his honesty did not necessarily place him in a good situation. His honesty, bluntness, and interference caused Elizabeth to believe he had a lot of pride, which turned her off. As he was a changed man at the end of the book, he admitted that at one point he lacked the quality of self-control or caution, I should have judged better had I sought an introduction; but I am ill qualified to recommend myself to strangers… I certainly have not the talent, which some people possess of conversing easily with those I have never seen before.
The Victorian Upper Class always tried to ignore this part of their society, it was thought of as something which was disgusting and wrong, a lot like the way Mr Hyde was thought of. So to Mr Utterson, Dr Jekyll, Dr Lanyon, and Mr Enfield Mr Hyde represents everything they hate and strive against, he is the antithesis of themselves. Mr Utterson, Dr Jekyll, Dr Lanyon and Mr Enfield are all alike because they are all presented as well-educated, reputable men who come from a good background. These men are very refined characters, always polite and considerate (the fact that Dr Lanyon kept up relations with Dr Jekyll for ‘old time’s sake’ even though he obviously disliked Dr Jekyll shows that he is a courteous person). Nonetheless they are very restrained, controlled men, never displaying much emotion, with of course the exception of Dr Lanyon whose enthusiasm and ‘theatrical’ personality is brought to light when he welcomes Mr Utterson by ‘springing up from his chair and welcoming him with both hands’.
Glenn Greenwald, a talented and widely read columnist on civil liberties for the Guardian newspaper, failed in his attempt to alarm his readers to the flagrant and widespread violations of American privacy. Although his article was full of facts, documentation, and quotes from top rank officials, the article did not convey any sense of wrong doing or outrage. Rather it was dull, lacked passion and a sense of persuasion. In fact, the only attention grabbing part in the whole article is the title. Greenwald is currently contributing to The Guardian.
Jekyll attempts to rationalize his behavior throughout the chapter of “Henry Jekyll’s Full Statement of the Case”. He continually defends his pure evil side by arguing everyone has the power to become their own version of Hyde, most people do not show it. Jekyll realizes his personal duality in the book by adding ”I learned to recognize the thorough and primitive duality of man; I saw that, of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness, even if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both” (Stevenson 84). Jekyll believes Hyde is harmful to the world, yet he keeps letting him out. His actions prove he realizes Hyde is detrimental to society, but releasing Hyde feels too good to Jekyll to subdue him any longer, however, this is Jekyll’s greatest mistake.
Utterson was still trying to explain the mysteries of Hyde in a natural way when he enters Jekyll’s house, but his explanation could not explain the mystery of the story – how and where is Hyde hidden. From Lanning, the only people allowed to see the transformation of the mysterious action, readers get some questions about the story’s structure: how to predict a double psychological reality of a story, trying to reasonable and realistic, rather than fable. Lanning 's letter said his soul is sick at what he saw. This is an indeed hidden yet able to prove
I have a history of picking the “good but bad habits” type of guys. These guys are good at heart, but have bad habits that may change over time. They have somewhat of a “bad boy” attitude. They’re not mean, but they’re not too nice, as well. They didn’t do anything dramatically romantic until we were very well acquainted with each other.
Nick does not have a storyline about himself, only his occurrences with Gatsby. Nick is also very bias towards Gatsby for they are good friends. He always thinks Gatsby is a great guy, despite the fact that Gatsby is involved in illegal activities; bootlegging. In Aly Zanne’s essay, Nick Carraway: an Unreliable Narrator, she argues, “As a result of their [Nick and Gatsby’s] strong connection, Nick’s narration of The Great Gatsby becomes heavily biased towards Gatsby’s favor, often highlighting the events that show Gatsby’s good character in a good light, whilst downplaying the unfavorable ones” (Aly Zanne). Nick’s biased opinion about Gatsby stays true throughout the book.
He is not much of a father to Eric or Sheila ,although he does love them he is not very good at showing it. What he does now how to do however is run a business. Also he is very ignorant as I illustrated earlier, with his “predictions” which couldn’t have been more wrong. Mr Birling acted very authoritive with Inspector Goole and was completely taken aback when the Inspector didn’t treat him with the respect he thought he deserved. He is also ruthless, as it is proven when at least twice he offered the Inspector a bribe just to keep his mouth shut.
Although Nick is unsure about how Gatsby got most of his riches. Nick qu... ... middle of paper ... ...lf “one of the most honest people I[he] have[has] ever known”, being honest of course (59). Although this over honesty could make him a bad narrator, he is better than a narrator that lies. Most of the time nick is a reliable narrator who tells the truth, especially when it comes to Gatsby. His thoughts about Gatsby’s character are very just, because he is suspicious about the same things that regular people would be.
