Clarisse is naïve because she is still young, but she is very intuitive and understands that there is more to the world than meets most people’s eyes. She quite precocious too. She wonders why, who, what and how whereas most people in this book just go with what they are told. Clarisse is also pure. She has not been corrupted like most of society to think that what you see is what you get.
This builds up a snobbish character, since he wants everyone to know that he has achieved a grand position in Lady Catherine’s De Bourgh live. Furthermore, his father “had given him great humility of manner” (p.130), as “the greatest part of his life [has] been spent under the guidance of an illiterate and miserly father”. (pg.130) Though, by the time he had the chance to be near to Lady Catherine’s side he changed and become too proud and continually arrogant of himself. Moreover, one can see that Mr. Collins has a high regard for himself since, he considers that he is “more fitted by education and habitual study” (p.182) and also the fact that he introduces himself to Mr. Darcy, with the pretending reason that he knows his aunt Lady Catherine, and believes that he would pay attention at him after the warnings of Ms. Elizabeth Bennet as it was inappropriate to present yourself to an unknown person unless a mutual friend introduces you makes him a foolish and too proud for himself. However, Mr. Darcy “was eyeing him with unrestrained wonder” (p.182)Similarly, Austen manages to make Mr. Collins a ridiculous character once more, since Elizabeth rejects his proposal by saying that he “could never make [her] happy” and that she is “convinced that she is the last woman in the world who would make [him] happy” (p.200).
Joe Keller is a man who loves his family above all else, and has sacrificed everything, including his integrity, in his struggle to make the family successful.

Red is the mediator or polemicist, meaning that he’s a smooth talker and debater. In Shawshank he’s know as the man that can get anything for you from the outside … for a price of course. He’s a crook with a good heart and somewhat good intentions, but he confides to the prison walls to blur the lines of reality outside in the real world. Inside the prison he has value to his name and his insecurities are concealed by the opaque violence, and hard stance of Shawshank’s environment. Hope motivates him, but he does anything in his will to cloak that fact.
The play A Doll’s House is filled with unique and very distinctive characters. One in particular being Torvald, Nora’s husband, best friend to Mr. Rank, and a father to three children. Automatically, once we were introduced to Torvald’s character we knew he was always the power in his relationships, especially in his relationship with Nora. Our initial reaction of Torvald was that he was a seemingly nice man who cared for his family, and their betterment. While this is true, we soon began to see the negative connotations in his speech, which at times contradicted our views on how kind he was.

This issue makes me think of my father, who often tells me that in one of his most important business decisions, he relied on his ‘gut feeling’ instead of his rational self and still made one of his best decisions ever. Another human virtue in Rand’s list is productiveness, which I cannot argue with. Where would the world be without productive people? I am a strong believer in work and productivity- I think that human beings would perish without being productive and the only way for someone to
To find an excellent example of a man who has, what seems to be, a lifetime of wisdom is Okonkwo from Chinua Achebe’s “Things Fall Apart”. Unlike the elders among his tribe, Okonkwo is wise in his family, in his work, and in his life. This seems to be ironic in a sense, but usually the hardest of workers and strongest of body, are usually the strongest of heart and mind. Firstly, Okonkwo is wise in the way he treats his family. The man knows how to handle his many wives and children, as should be done in the Ibo tribe.
6) This is how the narrator, Pip, describes Joe Gargery, a humble man who is very fond of Pip, like a father is of a son. With Pip's parents dead, Pip needed a father figure and he found this in Joe Gargery, like Lawrence Jay Dessner suggests: “Gargery, as the husband of Pip's acting mother, is the most obvious father figure, and he is in some respects what Pip craves.” (pp. 444) Mrs. Gargery, Joe's wife and Pip's sister, is a strict woman who holds the household together, controls her husband and who is very unforgiving with Pip. She often beats him and Joe is always the one who defends Pip. Joe is also a man with strong moral values who tries to implant those values in Pip.
