As the film progresses viewers gradually uncover and understand the complex nature of their relationship. Initially, Charlie is portrayed as the older sibling who protects his ‘kid brother’ from Johnny Friendly. This is clearly observed in the opening bar scene after Joey Doyle’s murder. When Terry shows signs of weakness and hesitation about the nights proceeds in front of Johnny, Charlie artfully places a hand on Terry’s wrist a subtle signal to be quite - a sign he is ‘looking out’ for Terry. Similarly, Terry displays a deep loyalty throughout the entire film, by refusing to ‘rat’ on Johnny despite his guilty conscience simply because he does not want to ‘put the finger on [his] own brother’.
Nothing could ever make up for all the bad things Sonny does but at least he does somewhat realize the bad things he does. If he did not realize his bad deeds, he wouldn’t be telling Cologero not to be like him. I know that Sonny has trust issues but that does not affect him being a good person or not. Sonny’s having trust issues is just his way of trying to protect himself from getting taken advantage of, and keep control. The reason why he has these trust issues is probably because he was taken advantage of in the past, and does not want it to happen again.
Good versus Evil: A look at the never ending battle through the eyes of Flannery O’Connor as portrayed in A Good Man is Hard to Find Good versus Evil: A look at the never ending battle through the eyes of Flannery O’Connor as portrayed in A Good Man is Hard to Find A Good Man is Hard to Find is O’Connor’s portrayal of religious conflict between good and evil. It is also one of impending doom which was lived by O’Connor throughout her life after being diagnosed with Lupus (Diyanni, 2007, p.184) a condition which ultimately killed her father (Shmoop Editorial Team, 2008). The conflict is played out throughout the story by morally flawed characters in the form indifference, disrespect, manipulation and the threat of and ultimate loss of life. Being raised as a southerner and a Catholic, it is logical that she would use the never-ending battle between good and evil as a base for this story. O’Connor uses what is defined as the southern gothic style: the avoidance of perpetuating stereotypes of the “Old South” such as the dainty southern belle from the classic genre but using instead the gothic types like the “spiteful spinster” and portraying them in a more realistic manner.
His first encounter of a problem is when the Grandmother recognizes his face and exclaims “You're the Misfit” (O' Connor 1257). While those few words may not seem that important, those three words create a huge problem for the Misfit. The Misfit is being kind and somewhat courteous helping a family in need, but when the Grandmother recognizes his face it puts him in jeopardy of being caught. Since the Misfit can not be sure of whether or not the family will turn him in, he must make a decision on how to solve the problem. His decision is surely made when he tells the Grandmother “it would have been better for all of you, lady, if you hadn't of reckernized me” (1257).
And another thing he says is that he wants to be a “catcher in the Rye” to save the kids lives so that they won’t fall off the cliff. I don’t think Holden is as perfect as he wants to be I think he only judges people and calls them a phony, because he probably does things like they do that he hates doing himself. There’s parts in the book were Holden acts like a phony and sometimes is a hypocrite , he contradicts himself, for example when he tells he hates the movies but then again he also tells that he likes attending them with her sister and with his friends. I can’t say Holden is a phony because he judges people in his mind and he admits he’s a liar, his attitude is like many people. Yes Holden does criticize people a lot but he never tells them and he never hurt anyone.
Just you read it. I wouldn't take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it. I couldn't answer to my conscience if I did." The misfit is introduced and portrayed as an evil person because he was explained as “aloose from the Federal Pen…” The grandmother is portraying to the people around her that she is “good” because she wouldn’t put her children in any possible way of harm. When the “good” grandmother and the evil misfit meet up, he has no problem with killing her while she pleads for her life.
