This movie took place in a desert like farm in Arizona. A field is a place almost with little activity, open space, and peace and quiet. Homer was sent there by faith in order to make a difference and change the atmosphere of things. No one was interested in the small town, but because of the determination of one man and many others, the whole community was able to pitch in and help. We can also look at the lilies on the field being a biblical reference.
Jack definitely believes that rules are necessary in a community and that men must follow the rules. Merridew has friends. He is supportive and helpful: "At the return Ralph found himself alone on a limb with Jack and they grinned at each other, sharing this burden" (38). Jack knew the importance of friendship and teamwork. He loved helping Ralph and his wish was to make this island like a home for the boys.
Ralph upholds the responsibility as chief because he knows he has to somehow guide the boys until they were rescued. Although he is afraid of what lay ahead, he becomes brave and takes position with confidence. Apart from taking a risky position as leader, Ralph shows bravery by taking risks so the other boys do not have to. He, for example, went down to the red cliff where the boys think the beast could be hiding. “...[He] realized with surprise that he did not really expect to meet the beast and didn’t know what he would do about it if he did” (Golding 105).
The Aspects of Jarvis In Cry, the Beloved Country, Paton displays a great deal of depth in his characters, showing them to possess strengths and weaknesses in each of them.

He is somewhat of an outcast and is forced to survive on his wits. The correspondent is the central character of “The Open Boat.” The correspondent is a young man who discovers that nature and fate do not think and act as men do. Huckleberry Finn shows that he would enjoy a lifelong matrimony with nature, while the correspondent in “The Open Boat” scorns and is horrified of nature. Nature can be a method for survival, but it can also keep someone from surviving. In “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “The Open Boat” nature is the main aspect of survival in one way or another.
But at the same time he is a perceptive person who knows when to build and when not to build a wall: “But here there are no cows...to give offence." To him, the mending of the wall is just a burden that he wishes not to have to deal. In direct contrast, contrary to his neighbor is a conservative who will not listen to reason and is of course completely immune to any sudden flash of intuition. All that he can do is merely repeat parrot like "Good fences make good neighbors." He is a prisoner of dogmatic traditionalism whose thought process and actions are
Steinbeck achieves these two feats by creating a protagonist who earns the reader’s sympathy because of his utter helplessness in the face of the events that unfold. Lennie is totally defenseless. He cannot avoid the dangers presented by Curley, Curley’s wife, or the world at large. His innocence raises him to a standard of pure goodness that is more poetic and literary than realistic. His enthusiasm for the vision of their future farm
Everyman realizes that the goods he has loved his whole life do nothing but hinder his eternal happiness. His reliance on people and goods has left Everyman's soul in a precarious condition. The shepherds’ lives are similar to Everyman's, because they too devote their time to worldly concerns. By fixating on their material well being, they follow the same path as Everyman, the path away from salvation. At the beginning of The Second Shepherds' Play all three shepherds, Coll, Gib, and Daw, seek to relieve their pain by complaining.
This theme of happiness through simplicity with nature weaves itself throughout Into the Wild. The dominant tone of the work can be described as factual, a voice of conflicting emotion. On one hand we hear Chris’ excitement, happiness, and hope as he heads out on his adventure “into the wild”, but on the other we hear his desperate hopelessness as he physically deteriorates. The reporter style of the book makes this contrast obvious, but lessens the emotional side of the story. As a reader you often forget that this is a true story; yet as powerful as it is you do not laugh or cry like you might with another book.
