But then he experiences the hardships of the Holocaust and it abruptly changed him.

This view of his role as a victim of discrimination is emphasised a multiple of times throughout the exposition and rising action of the story. Firstly, the old man is seen to be “tormented” “quietly and determinedly” and he is compared to an “old peasant woman who waited for letters from her son” being teased, which is an extremely sad situation to imagine. This imagery of the old man being like the old peasant woman strikes a chord with the reader and appeals to the pathos quite deeply, and causes us to feel sympathy for the character. However, although the old man is viewed to be a sympathetic character for the most part of the story, our opinion of him is greatly threatened and perhaps even overturned, as we realise at the climax of the story, that he is the former commandant of Auschwitz, in charge of the concentration camps aimed at extermination of the Jewish race. This causes us to feel unsympathetic towards the old man in the resolution as his hard work goes to waste when the villagefolk use his dearly cultured black rose as a front of a cheap colour postcard instead of holding it in the true high regard that it was due as a great scientific breakthrough, because his manipulation of the breeds of roses and the hybridization of them is seen to be just another form of control of life by the man responsible for the deaths of so many human beings.
Consequently, Gabriel began to use religion as his protection to cover up all of his sinful doings. Even after Gabriel became a father, he continued his old ways, and made it difficult for his family to understand him or the true meaning of religion. When Gabriel was a
This lack of a father figure to influence him positively through his life could also provide reasoning for his ease to be influenced by Lord Henry. As shown by Lady Henry, Dorian begins to quote ‘one of Harry’s views’ showing the thorough control that Henry has over Dorian’s life in the same way a child would copy his father. This moment in his life also meant that Dorian was brought up by his cruel grandfather, Kelso, (instigator of his mother’s and father’s death) and from the nature of ‘the old schoolroom’ we can see that Kelso despised Dorian as he was a reminder of his daughter and her substandard marriage. This isolation can explain his naivety and provide some excuse for his ignorance leading to debauchery. In the beginning of the novel Dorian’s character comes across as childish and displays innocence and inexperience towards the world.
As a child Hindley treats Heathcliff poorly and always liked to hurt him by hitting him and insulting him, but he always found enjoyment in relaxing with Catherine, Hindley’s Sister. Every since Heathcliff is first brought to the Earnshaws house Hindley has been treating him very badly but Catherine accepted him into the family. Nelly says about Hindley that, “The young master had learned to regard his father as an oppressor rather than a friend, and Heathcliff as a usurper of his parent’s affections and his privileges; and he grew bitter with brooding over these injuries” (31). Hindley did not like Mr. Earnshaw because he always told him not to bother Heathcliff. Hindley always treated Heathcliff very badly for a long time, and Heathcliff began to despise Hindley more and more.
