Tom Robinson was found guilty of raping Mayella. Jem is furious and begins to cry. “It was Jem’s turn to cry. His face was streaked with angry tears as we made our way through the cheerful crowd. ‘It ain’t right,’ he muttered.” This quotation from just after the trial shows how Jem has grown up, he is furious with the jury’s verdict.
I remember one night when we were fighting he told me I was a stupid bitch, I fired back with whatever name came to mind at that moment. I was so upset at what he was yelling at me and the names he was calling me that I didn't even stop to think about how he was feeling, at that moment my goal was to hurt him as much as he hurt me. D.) I think that during these fights, his goal was to make me feel guilty for leaving him and to make me feel that no one else would want to be with me. He would bring up every tender
He was quoted as saying, "they ALL mocked and slaughtered my self esteem it got so bad I had to turn to drugs." Only days after Thanksgiving, Carneal walked into school with his arsenal of weapons and opened fire killing two students (Newman 26-27). Another example from the book is that of Andrew Williams of Santee, CA. Similar to Carneal, Williams was harassed and teased because of his scrawny appearance. He seemed to take this in stride though, however, on the inside he was being destroyed.
Prejudice and Stereotyping Twelve Angry Men shows that prejudice can be a dangerous thing. When they first enter the jury-room, many jurors are ready to convict the defendant, not just on the evidence and arguments presented by the prosecution but, frighteningly, because the boy is a member of a social group for whom the jury hold no respect, for whom the stereotypes are of hopeless lives and criminal behaviours. As 4th puts it, ‘slums are breeding grounds for criminals’ (p.12) and 10th adds, ‘the kids who crawl outa those places are real trash’ (p.12). While there may be statistical or subjective justifications for some of these opinions, there is little evidence to show that the opinions explain this particular murder. Certainly the
Darl is also brings humiliation for Anse because other townsfolk are always talking about Darl and how strange he is. His parents aren’t the only ones who have a troubled relationship with Darl. Jewel absolutely hates his brother Darl. Darl frequently torments his younger brother giving reason for Jewel to shun Darl. Dewey Dell hates Darl because she can’t keep any secrets from him, because he can look at her and know what she’s hiding.
The Ewells were known for being rude and inconsiderate. Mayella’s father, Robert, didn’t care much for his children and was always drunk. Atticus suspected him of beating Mayella and for forcing her to frame Tom Robinson. Atticus suspected this of him because in the courtroom he asked Mr. Ewell to write out his name. His dominant hand is his left and Mayella was struck on the right side of her face, which makes perfect sense.
He is baffled by Mr. Chiu’s remarks, “If only I could kill all the bastards,” and thinks to himself how “ugly” his professor looks. (Jin 185) This is a clear sign that all the morals and principals are now gone in the character. Having refused on principle to sign a false confession, he has been consumed by sickness and negativity that he has no qualms about what he just did, but is still aware of what is going to happen. This is his way of punishing the province and the police that falsely accused him of sabotage, but ironically ended up creating a bigger demon that anyone could have
First off, one scene showed Holden going through anger and bargaining. This was evident when Holden tells of when he went around punching the windows and walls because of the death of Allie, his younger brother. He showed that he was very upset because all his rage was let out in a violent manner, which broke his hands. This
Guilt is a very big part of human conscience (except on Monday’s which have been proved by statistics as the most guilt-ridden day for most workers.) Many people tend to feel guilty about something that they have done rather it be in secret or out in the open. In Danicat’s novel “The Dew Breaker”, guilt is a demon that hunts a man that tries to run away from a dark past. The guilt that Ka’s father has about the past could never leave him alone due to all the evil deeds he had committed on innocent people. Ka’s father tries to hide his identity throughout the novel because he does not want his past to catch up with his present life.
My friend did not like Muslim people because he thought that all of them were here to make our lives worse by blowing up another building or plane. As the evidence that would support his hypothesis he would talk about the tragic 9/11 event in the US and grievous accidents in the other countries. He was always ready to hear bad news and they characterized the entire nation for him. Being from another country I felt embarrassed of him sometimes because I could not accept his idea of judging all the people by the acts of few. Unfortunately, none of the good stories reached his ear; they seemed to vanish in his mind.
