They would tell him he was useless, that he was a burden to them and that nobody would ever love him whilst kicking, punching and slapping him. As a result of these horrific experiences, he developed permanent irritable and aggressive characteristics as well as a cold heart which made it difficult to open up to people. His father was murdered in 1015 but the suspect was never found. There was
In the quote, it shows that Curley has no compassion or empathy. He does not show empathy towards neither his wife or Lennie and his actions. Instead, he says he is going to kill him in a painful, long way. This whole quote says so much about Curley’s character, it shows he has a poor character and bad morals; unlike George. Curley’s characterization reveals a lot about his character and how he is ruthless and doesn’t care for others not even his deceased wife.
If they thought something bad could be happening, they would talk to that friend and tell them what they think and how it should be resolved. No real friend would jump to conclusions and make such a drastic decision as killing that person. Brutus also did not value his wife, Portia. He was never home for her and, eventually, part of her suicide was linked to this. To drive her to suicide was a very selfish act on Brutus’ part.
Davy showed disgust towards the boys after they attempted to hurt his girlfriend. His father, having stepped in, prevented any further altercations between Israel, Tommy and Davy’s girlfriend. The event that possibly hit home the most for Davy was when Israel and Tommy kidnapped Swede from their home. Davy remained quiet about the situation until he could no longer take it. “The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it” (Albert Einstein).
She is uncomfortable and dependent on him while he continues to manipulate her. Finally, he takes her wooden leg, leaving her vulnerable and powerless. Taking an individual's independence and establishing oneself over the person aggravates the morals of modern society. These two criminals became dictators of the moment and threw away the right of respect people have; this tainted them. The control The Misfit and Pointer had over their victims is jus... ... middle of paper ... ...e realizes that the pretender and stealer of her leg believes nothing, how could she?
The narrator quickly informs us that he killed the old man for none of the usual reasons but only because he could not stand the look of the man’s blinded eye. ( enotes ) The narrator is-in this case an unreliable narrator because he is not sane but pleads for others to think he is. Killing some because you didn’t like the way their eye look is not a sane thing to do. The narrator doesn’t even step back to realize the deed as murder or what the consequences would be if found out. Throughout the tale he is trying to prove, sanity exist within him as he depose of the body of the old man in a “sane” way.
However, Hawthorne shows him to be an evil-minded person who is so consumed with vengeance and hatred that he cannot live when his victim dies. His only purpose in life is to make Dimmesdale’s life miserable; so when the minister dies, Chillingworth has no purpose left so he dies as well. The story of the scarlet letter is extremely relatable in the modern era. People often do not realize that everyone has his/her own story and that people should not jump to conclusions without knowing that story. The kid that is always angry and is always bullied?
I get really concerned about how people perceive me and interpret my actions. However, I’m not really concerned about vanity being my great flaw or becoming the next Narcissus, because everyone is a little vain. Unfortunately, some people take their pride a little overboard. For instance, John Proctor was so vain that he would rather die than tarnish his name; the judges that condemned him had an inkling of knowledge that they were killing innocent people, but by the time they realized it, they couldn’t save people without ruining their reputation. Arthur Dimmesdale let the mother of his child suffer years of judgment because he didn’t want to face the shame of revealing his sin.
The Misfit is clearly a criminal, but he calls himself “The Misfit” because he “can’t make what all I done wrong fit what all I gone through in punishment” (429). The Misfit deflected responsibility from himself and refuses to bear the results of his conflicts. Furthermore, the grandmother continuously declares that she is a so called “lady” though she is clearly racist, and is the reason why her family gets murdered. The grandmother made her son that she wanted to see until she realized that it was in a different state. In addition to all of this, she begs for her life, but never asks The Misfit to spare her family.
Othello cannot receive sympathy from the audience because it takes it away from Desdemona, who deserves all of our sympathy. Othello’s choices are solely based on what he doesn’t know for sure, which is why sympathy cannot be felt for him. It’s convincing that Othello is not in love with Desdemona on the simple fact that he was able to watch her die by the strangulation of his own hands, even though she begged him to let her live. Sympathy for Othello was eliminated after he hit and killed Desdemona all because he was
