Roy, like Dwight, influences Toby’s relationship with his mother and forces Toby to withhold the truth from her. Toby goes on to resent this control and deception and rebel against it. Toby’s skewed perception of masculinity is similarly impacted by his father’s ‘desertion’. Whilst Wolff’s discussion of his father’s neglect is minimal, a deeper impact and lesson of real value becomes evident in Wolff’s snapshot of himself as a father. It is, in part, because of his father’s ‘inconstant parent(ing)’ that Wolff feels such a
1st Para First of all, it is the support presented by the guide figure that assists the hero. BNW: John is in extreme danger as a group of Deltas are ganging up on him due to his revealing of his rebellion against the society by throwing away the somas. Luckily Helmholtz comes to help: "Helmholtz Watson pushed his way through the crowd" (Huxley 195). This shows how Helmholtz was willing to risk himself and yet provide physical support for John. Toronto at Dreamer's Rock: Rusty exposes how stressful his life is during his conversation with Michael and Keesic.
His contrast and deviation from the standards that society believes in shows Toby’s complexity in character. Irony is crucial, conveying a negative tone about Toby’s religious beliefs, attitude, character, and the characters around him. It is ironic that Toby uses Sister James’s sins during his own confession, showing that he does not take his religion seriously. Primarily, irony develops a negative tone towards Toby’s religious beliefs and attitude. This tone becomes visible through the confession with the priest and Sister James.
Paul’s hatred for his middle class lifestyle is so strong, that he feels it is necessary to ‘artificially enhance’ his life by lying and stealing. Even though Cordelia street is a respectable neighbourhood, Paul views it as a poor and ugly area, because it lacks the extravagence that represents wealth and to him beauty. In Paul’s world, “the natural nearly always wears the guide of ugliness, that a certain element of artificiality seemed necessary in beauty.” (Paul’s Case, pg. 7). Paul despises his common life so much that he feels he must hid it from his peers through lies.
As he says, “it is a high time to face the persecutors who haunt the bright kid with thick glasses from kindergarten to the grave.” The bullying, the teasing, and the harassing for their abilities and their “disgusting taste” must be stopped, as stated in his writing. Using a firm tone toward the issue you can tell he has experienced this, and that connects him deeper with the audience though pathos. Leonid Fridman shows a very negative attitude towards the focus of “Nerds and Geeks.”He supports disagreement through pathos, satire, and a impressive word choice, He over take the mind of the reader with these rhetorical strategies. Through elementary school, middle school, and in high school, everyone needs their nerds and
Central to Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery is the theme of injustice. In both texts, the theme of injustice is present, due to societies failure to question superstitious beliefs and tradition resulting in inhumane treatments. The societies in both texts, adhere on tradition and superstitious beliefs regardless of the harmful effects it may cause. Fundamentally, it portrays human kind’s vagueness concerning the purpose of their actions, being more alarmed about tradition and rituals. Failure to this, leads to harsh penalties and measures towards the main characters, John Proctor and Tessie Hutchinson.
CONFLICT WITH THE SELF The Crucible also explores the conflict that can arise in the hearts and minds of individuals, the personal crisis of conscience which can be exacerbated by guilt or self doubt. John Proctor exemplifies the way in which private guilt or a personal crisis relates to the wider public conflict. The relationship with A. Williams has revealed weakness, as well as poor judgement and he hates himself for it. As his wife says: ‘The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you’. Consequently, he has come to regard himself as ‘a kind of fraud’ not the man that Salem assumes him to be.
The society breeds ignorance of the physical change of a “true image” that is not subsequently developed, influences the fear of deviations. Firstly, Joseph Strorm is very strict and examines differences in appearances thoroughly to send people to suffer in the fringes afterwards. Joesph was struck when David stated
The townsfolk of Salem feared having their own reputations tainted by the sins of others, that they distant themselves and even accused others in order to protect or promote their respective reputations. During time of hysteria, old grudges and jealousies flared, adding to the atmosphere of tension. 4. Characters Transformation: John Proctor (Protagonist) - John Proctor sees himself as a strong, stern, honest man except for one affair incident with Abigail that haunts him. Early in the play, he could’ve prevented the spread of the hysteria by testifying against Abigail’s accusations.
Jack takes his anger out on Piggy, who stands in plain contrast to Jack’s character: “I’m scared of him…but if you stand out of the way he’d hurt the next thing. And that’s me” (Golding 93). Piggy handles this fear by avoiding Jack and remaining loyal to Ralph. Another fear that Piggy experiences is a fear of being ignored or shunned by others. Above all else, Piggy wants acknowledgement of his opinions and thoughts, as proven by his statement: “I got the conch…You let me speak!”(Golding 42).
