Before Chinook, in Utah, Jack’s already imagining things, and it keeps him out from stressfulness, boredom, and depression. You can see it when Jack got the Winchester .22 rifle from Roy, he always imagining shooting people from his apartment and he’s doing it because he likes to have power over people. If imagination is the basic ‘ingredient’ of escapism, there are another medium that is shown in the novel about escaping his reality. In everyday life, we usually see people attempted to run away from their depression by drinking alcohol. Most of the characters in the novel drink alcohol to temporarily run from their current problem and obscure the harsh and bitter side of the reality of their lives.
–nervous—very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad?) telling you exactly what he wants you to get out of this double telling story by implying that he is still nervous about something, but he is not crazy, despite committing murder for no apparent reason other than the fact that he didn’t like the old man’s “vulture eye.” Poe tells a story that on the surface appears to be more plain and visible than what it really is.

A bullet was chambered and he didn’t realize it! At a Cy Fair High School in the spring of 2009, a supposed unloaded gun when off when a student was showing a friend and they shot a toilet. These examples show that no matter how well trained you are, guns are still dangerous and can kill. Ivins also states in the essay that “It is a crowded, overwhelmingly urban country in which letting people have access to guns is a continuing disaster.” From businesses to private homes, people seem to think they need a gun to feel safe. Even though there are other forms of protection such as alarm systems and guard dogs, people still want guns.
Claudius, Hamlet's uncle is the most serious offender of lying and deceit. Although he has committed the most heinous acts, Claudius is the only characters who develops a guilty conscious as a result of dis devious actions. As each of the main characters develops on social, moral and psychological levels, lying and deception is an ever present theme and an integral part of the plot. From his very first scene in the play, Prince Hamlet establishes himself as someone who is morally opposed to deception. When Hamlet's uncle and mother urge him to “cast [his] nighted color off,” (Shakespeare 1.2.68) and stop acting and appearing so depressed, he replies that his “inky cloak.../ [and] river in the eye.../ are actions that a man might play” (Shakespeare 1.2.78-84).

When Hale arrived in Salem, he had a pile of books, and he was only going to declare witchcraft if he proved it. During some of the time in the Trials, he relied on his books to help guide him.
Fahrenheit 51; Is Montag a Hero? Some people have confusion on whether Guy Montag, the main character in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, could be considered to be a heroic figure in the book. A hero is a person that makes the right decisions and does things for the good of others. Guy Montag didn’t make many great decisions and often did things for himself. If he was a good person from the start he wouldn’t have become a fireman in the first place, when his curiosity built on books he was becoming greedy for the knowledge, and finally, he killed his chief because of emotions.
“The two sharp groups of noises sounded to my ears like rifles being fired in the distance” (Knowles 151). In this quote Gene compares noise he hears like rifles, which could be used in war. This shows the theme by showing that Gene knows war is real, and he is not afraid to admit it, unlike Finny who does not think the war is real. This occurs to show a difference of thoughts between two best friends, and to show that Gene lost his innocence in the subject of war. “They unrolled away impervious to me as though I were a roaming ghost, not only tonight but always, as thought I had never played on them a hundred times, as thought my feet had never touched them, as though my whole life at Devon had been a dream, or rather that everything at Devon, the playing fields, the gym, the water hole, and all the other buildings and all the people there were intensely real, wildly alive and totally meaningful, and I alone was a dream, a figment which had never really touched anything” (Knowles 189).
