He and his son were the only truly good-hearted men in the novel. He ran a firm with honest practices and persistently helped Dantes. When the Count repaid him for his kindness, the reward was truly deserved. Personal Evaluation: After reading this book, I can see why it has such and enduring popularity. The plot is exciting, and absorbs the reader into a romantic adventure.
Carton redeemed his sinful life in this last sacrifice, making his “wasted life” worthwhile, and also giving him something to be remembered by. Using the character’s actions in the book, Dickens shows that a sacrifice of any size can drastically change another person’s life. Through the sacrifices of all the characters in the book, it is quite evident that even the smallest acts of sacrifice and generosity have the ability to bring happiness and revival in a great form.
Walcott’s states that despite the intense th... ... middle of paper ... ...himself and not know it. This line stimulates curiosity in the readers. Walcott’s continues with a more sentimental tone. “I would have learnt to love the black days like bright ones, the black rain, the white hills” (22-23) implies that if the narrator’s love was not limited, he would be able to love the good and bad days. The author concludes the poem with “when I loved only my happiness and you.” (24) His ultimate choice of a selfless tone alludes that the narrator has learned a lesson in love and relationships.
Dr. Manette sacrificed his past prison experiences to help Darnay, while Darnay sacrificed his noble title to be with Lucie. Cruncher sacrificed grave stealing to be a real honest tradesman and Carton sacrificed his life for Lucie to be happy. Each one of these characters transformed into something greater, enabling them to reach redemption. Their misspent life was not wasted toward the end of the novel and these characters did impact those around them.
All of the negative characteristics portrayed in Voltaire's "Candide" are timeless. The author of this short novel knew this and incorporated that message into the book by using the theme of Resurrection. The characters, Pangloss, Cunegonda, and the Baron all represent traits such as folly, snobbery, and narrow mindedness and are somehow resurrected throughout the story. We see that in our world, no matter how hard we try; we will never get rid of the evil characteristics of the people around us. The first impression we get of Pangloss is that he is almost a sickeningly optimistic man.
The aspect most stressed in France is echoed in Victor Hugo's expression "liberalism in literature," meaning the freeing the writer of restrains and rules marked by the inspiration of radical political ideas. The novel “Les Miserables” by Victor Hugo indeed demonstrates romantic qualities such as spiritual growth, emotion/sympathy and Nature. Jean Valjean is an exceptional character who demonstrates spiritual growth because he feels lost and nothing can change his life he has. All changes when he meets a Bishop who says “you no longer belong to evil but to good” (Hugo 34) he offers Valjean unconditional love, trusting the former convict with his life because of this Valjean becomes new man and goes on to become a kind yet humble mayor. The romantics were fascinated “with self-exploration and with the particulars of the individual's experience in the world” (Milne) because of this writers consider the worth of the characters in their work.
I want to do my duty” (Chapter 19 page 171). Due to this reason, I believe that justice has been done as Silas has been rewarded after his betrayal in Lantern Yard and taking care of Eppie by himself. He has been rewarded by having a peaceful and happy life, and also by being surrounded by people who care for him. Godfrey’s past misdemeanors have gone on to punish him later on in life, as, although he got Nancy, he was left without an heir. The moral of the story is that everyone is rewarded or punished for their action or conduct to others.
Brooke conveys the tone by using words of very positive connotation to honor his country and show his pride. For example, he uses phrases such as... ... middle of paper ... ...using the divided sonnet structure he is able to create the contrast between the honor of the death of an English soldier to the comfort the “English heaven” he imagines will offer him. It allows the reader to see the death of an English soldier as much more honorable and gives them a sense that he is extremely proud and almost arrogant about being an Englishman. This allows his opinion that dying as an English soldier in a foreign country is honorable and not depressing because he would be remembered as a soldier who fought for the proud English people and died for his country. In Rupert Brooke’s “The Soldier,” he conveys his strong feelings about death as an English soldier.
Then at the end the reader saw him change to a person who was compassionate about Jefferson. This showed promise and hope for the future of Grant as a caring human being who just might learn to appreciate what he has been given. After I finished the novel, I reread the last chapter because I felt ...
National Public Radio praised Haslett’s novel saying, “Haslett's signature achievement in Imagine Me Gone is to temper the harrowing with the humorous while keeping a steady bead on the pathos. You want sympathetic characters? You want a narrative that showcases love as a many-splendored thing capacious enough to encompass stalwart, long-suffering spouses, loyal siblings, suffocatingly obsessive crushes, and casual, noncommittal relationships (both gay and straight) that morph as if by magic into soul-sustenance? You want writing that thrums with anguish and compassion? It's all
