In the play “Twelve Angry men”, the story line presents a variety of perspectives and opinions between twelve very different men. Some are more likely to be pointed out as prejudice, and others are more focused on reaching fair justice. Clearly, it is quite difficult for different people to vote ‘guilty’ or ‘not guilty’ in unity when coming to a fair decision. In all of the twelve jurors, I have chosen Juror 3 and Juror 8 for contrast and comparison. I believe that Juror number 3 is a very opinionated man, with more differences than similarities comparing with Juror number 8.
He would hate to hear his name spread around town, even for saving two children, because he is shy and does not like attention. After the death of Bob, Sheriff Heck knows that it was Boo who stepped in, saved the children, and killed Bob, but he does not want to announce it publicly for Boo’s sake. “Stunned, I stood there dumbly. The scuffling noises were dying; someone wheezed and the night was still again” (Lee 351). This shows how Boo stepped in and fought off Bob, eventually killing
Atticus is a victim of physical violence from another character. “ It was Ms. Stephanie’s pleasure to tell us: this morning Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him” (Lee 217). This violence that occurs shows that Atticus is a victim of unfair actions. Mr. Ewell was upset at Atticus because he fought for equality in Tom Robinson’s court trial. This makes Atticus a mockingbird, because he did nothing wrong.
Rumors of Boo's nightly activities have turned him into an idol of gossip and a man who is feared throughout Maycomb. He has acquired a very scary nickname, a reputation for violent and perverse traits, and most of the town avoids the Old Radley House like a disease. Aside from the fear of the unknown that haunts many of the people in Maycomb, there are many superstitions that are observed by both children and adults. Many of the people say he got in trouble with the law when he was younger, and his father imprisoned him in the house as punishment for his wrong doings. He was supposedly imprisoned for fifteen years, until it was said that he had stabbed his father with a pair of scissors.
In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, many notable themes arise, but the most prevalent theme is undeniably the theme of man’s inhumanity to man. At the beginning of the novel, we are introduced to Scout Finch, who is naive and oblivious to the discrimination that occurs in Maycomb. However, through many events and through meeting many characters, we soon begin to realize that the world may not be so nice after all. Our suspicions are only confirmed once we witness the terrible injustices that occur during the trial. The predominance of inhumanity throughout the novel is what makes it such an important theme.
Finally, judge someone how you see them as not how the society judges them as. Boo was known as an evil guy but at the end he saved two people’s lives Scout and Jem. Scout loses her innocence at a young age because of all the realizations she had to go through,
Jay Gatsby, a character in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, is much like the preceding man described, having faced the shame and committing the same dishonorable acts, and is often criticized by those in a negative standpoint. However, within the text, Nick Carraway, the narrator of the novel, plainly states, “Gatsby turned out all right at the end” (6). Nick knew all about the immoral deeds Gatsby had carried out, so how could Nick make this claim in honor of a dead man? The answer is quite simple: Nick realized Gatsby’s incorruptible dream was the most admirable feat out of all the characters in the book, something that not only made Gatsby respectable to Nick, but great. Nick is the traditional realist, the only character with personal integrity.
So far nothing in the your life has interfered with reasoning process. Those are twelve reasonable men, they went because we were there. There’s something in our world that makes men lose their head’s- they couldn’t be fair if they tried. In our courts, when it’s white man’s word against a black man’s, the white always wins. They’re ugly, but those are the facts of life.”(Lee 224) This trial had taught Jem how to face injustice just like his father “Atticus”.
They don't matter because they are stupid." But what if someone had the power to allow them to be of normal intelligence? He or she might think that he or she is doing the clone a favor, but when the clone is killed for spare parts it's an even worse situation than with a retarded clone. Not for this "bandido" (Farmer 37). El Patron is a cruel, selfish, heartless man who clawed his way to power in his youth and rules people with fear, though he is powerful, he is always nagged by the fact that he may lose everything.
