Mother had no consideration now for anyone but that poisonous pup,” (p.9). Larry had gained a friend in his father as he realizes what he was fighting him over is now taken. In Conclusion, “My Oedipus Complex” goes by the old saying when one door closes another door opens. Larry's door closing was the realization that he was unable to marry his mother and have babies with her. The door opening was him seeing that his father wasn't bad at all and he said,”At Christmas he went out of his way to buy me a really nice model railway,” (p.10).
Tom Sawyer promises many things, but unfortunately, such thing did not occur. Tom's adventures turned out imaginary. Huck is disappointed that the adventures Tom promises are not real, so along with the other members, he resigned from the gang. Another person who tries to get Huckleberry Finn to change is Huck's father. His father is very antisocial and wishes to do all of the civilizing effects that Widow and Miss Watson have attempted to change in Huck.
When preparations begin for the family vacation, Kevin gets punished and reveals his “wish” to live alone, free of the family chaos. His wish becomes a reality when he oversleeps as his family heads for the airport. During the week, Kevin is free to do as he pleases, but he soon misses his family. Two burglars attempt to raid the McCallister home and he is left to defend himself (Hughes). Kevin enjoys the newfound freedom that this lifestyle has to offer, but he later discovers the absence of love that only his family can provide.
He is clever in the execution of his schemes, and all the while shows signs of useful knowledge about the world and everyday life lessons that are not learned from reading a book. Chapter Eight Response- I first found it interesting that no one bothered to look for Huckleberry Finn, as he hasn’t been attending school and hasn’t been spotted; yet, Huck’s father has been seen around town drunk. I found it enraging that efforts were made to find the boy in a much swifter fashion when he was presumed dead and their assistance would be no longer a use in bettering and aiding in the boys abusive and unfit home life. Big Jim and the other local slaves seem to believe deeply in superstitious beliefs and practices, such as witchcraft and ghosts. The local white population also had their own superstitious beliefs about quicksilver, cannon balls and dead bodies.
However, Huck sees Jim as a... ... middle of paper ... ... he owns slaves like all the rest. Then, Huck meets back up with Tom Sawyer, and let's his useless rescue attempts jeopardize Jim's freedom. Huck lets Tom Sawyer take the controls and sits quietly while Tom puts Jim through ordeal after ordeal. When it is made certain that Jim is a free man, Huck learns the truth about his father's death and who was in the floating house at the beginning of the journey. This information is taken by Huck in a very mature manner and his respect for Jim grows even more.
You get me that money tomorrow-I want it." Huck's own father does not feel one bit inclined to treat his son with any respect. Then his father brings him to a log cabin deep in the woods and Huck once again faces confinement. Huck's escape, flight, and the changing of his identity are his only release from being in the log cabin. Then after escaping from it all, Huck is left with himself and his freedom.
Dear Mark Twain, After reading your famous novel, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” I don’t feel that the ending you have created is suitable for the book. Throughout the entire novel, Huck is going to all extremes to help out a friend in need, Jim. As a slave, Jim is grateful for having such an honest and open friend like Huck, but it seems as if when he finds out he was free all along, things change. When Jim and Huck found themselves at the end of their journey, neither had anything left to run from because Huck’s dad was dead and Jim found out that Mrs. Watson freed him when she passed away a few months ago and hoped he would soon be with his family. Because of this ending of your choice, we never find out Huck’s true feelings about helping a run away slave besides what we learned earlier in the book.
Close to the end he realizes that he has been living the wrong life that when he dies no one will miss him or cares just like the way people reacted in the first chapter they were unsympathetic towards his death. He sees that he has been living an artificial life and should have spent more time with his family and he should have been loving and he should have had created greater meaning for his life, which Gerasim shows him as he takes care of him in his last
Along the way toward achieving their goal, they violate ethics, which, in turn, change them as people. Despite the two novels possessing differences, they coincide in many aspects. When Pip acquires the money from the unknown benefactor, he moves away under Jaggers guidance and seldom returns to his hometown. In the beginning, his reasons for coming back were to visit Joe, Biddy, and Miss Havisham, but eventually he changes and seeing the people previously so important to him appears to become a chore. This is ironic because, before, he looked up to Joe, and regarded him as a father, now he refuses to see him on account of Joe being a common blacksmith.
This attitude is a result of his separation from society at an early age. With a highly abusive drunkard for a father, Huckleberry Finn is forced from childhood to rely solely on himself. As a result of this, he effectively alienates himself from the rest of society. Society continues to try to "reform" him, but Huckleberry Finn shows his lack of appreciation in that effort from the very beginning of the story when he says, "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." His actions are based on instinct and his own experience, rather than conventional conscience.
