The narrator feels that it is one thing for Doodle to be disabled, but he would rather do away with Doodle than deal with the embarrassment of having him in his life if he were mentally weak as well. This feeling of inadequacy pushes him to try to make his brother “normal.” The narrator says at one point, “They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” This excerpt is a prime example of how pride can influence ones life. Instead of the narrator helping Doodle learn to walk so the narrator can feel better about
Using your essay in response to the unit's writing prompt, complete the following steps to improve your essay. Introduction Brutus is a betrayer, even though he says some things to people sometimes he turns around a says the complete opposite to others. Therefore, one example of this statement is when he always looked out for the best of Rome but when people said something that wasn’t so good about Rome, he will also go along with what they said even though he loved Rome.

Then Laertes says, in “Sadness and torment, suffering, hell itself—she makes them almost pretty.” (Act lV, Scene V). In addition to this conclusion, I've had past experiences where if you have no one to go to for help, a stranger might do just the right thing, for example like some teachers that i wouldn't know would give me advice. Adding to this, in Act lll, Scene ll Ophelia says to Hamlet “You get better in your jokes and worse in your manners.” (Act lll, Scene ll) After he has made a sexual comment towards her knowing that he was mocking her. She stood up for herself an actually got a chance to say what she is thinking, I can relate to this because i feel like i do not have a power struggle, whatever is on my mind I will say it just like how Ophelia
Frome marries Zenobia Pierce prematurely, only to obviate “the mortal silence of…long imprisonment.” (Wharton, page 61) He wanted “the sound of a …voice” to fill the void on his farm. (Wharton, page 61) Likewise, Holden seeks conviviality with Sally Hayes though he dislikes her phoniness. He ends the “depress[ing]” date by calling Sally a “royal pain in the ass.”(Salinger, page 133) Both characters were merely looking for companionship in their otherwise lonely lives but both encounters ended badly, for Frome on a large scale and for Holden on a smaller scale. Undoubtedly, these rash acts to receive camaraderie illustrate the foolhardiness of the protagonists. They both abhor solitude but are unsure how to find viable friendship.
His views of phonies, sex/relationship, and talks about Jane, makes us hard to believe what he says is true or not. Holden stated constantly that he hates phonies. He view basically everyone in his life as phonies except for children. He thinks that they are innocent and in order for them not to be corrupt, they shouldn't grow up to be adults. "That's all I'd do all day.
Steinbeck uses the word ‘Coulda’ to show that Curley’s wife thinks she had the potential to be a movie star but she ended up with a guy who she hates. We know this because she says ‘I don’t like Curley’, this is interesting because every time she engages into conversation with other men she is always looking for Curley whereas now she says she don’t like him. This makes the reader think that she was using Curley as excuse to communicate with other characters and this shows her desire for attention like we discussed in the previous pare graph but ultimately shows that she is useless without Curley. Steinbeck did this because he wanted the audience to understand not always you get what your dream and not all Americans got the best out the American dreams, some peoples dreams ware destroyed in matter of seconds as we seen in this chapter as Curley's wife dies with it ends Georges Linnes, Curley's wife and Candy's dreams. In Addition, the fact that she thinks that she had the potential to be a movie star links to
The line telling of the mother’s disdain is helpful in interpretation. If this were a poem of abuse, the mother would not have been mad; she would have been scared because the actions to come would not have been acceptable. She would have been trying to stop them rather than simply frowning upon the two. The second verse gives the feeling of family. The third quatrain begins to explain that the father is a working father.
She then goes onto talking about herself and how she ‘coulda made something’ of herself and that she only married Curley on the rebound. This then starts to make the reader feel sorry for her and rethink their opinion of her. She then continues to say ‘I don’t like Curley, he aint a nice fella’ which creates even more empathy toward her from the reader. This may be because she hasn’t achieved her dream and is living as part of someone else’s- on the rebound. Consequently her death, towards the end of the novel, creates a totally different image of her by the
His loneliness is a more tangible expression of his alienation problem. Loneliness is what the novel revolves around, because the novel is mostly Holden going from one place to another, doing one thing to the next to find the desired friendship and love. He constantly recoils from introspection, which was the reason why he could not figure out why he was behaving the way he was. But introspection hit home with him after he met Phoebe again when she alleges that Holden “[doesn’t] don’t like anything that’s happening” (Salinger 169). This was when Holden realized his cynicism and negative outlook on life when he struggled to think of anything or anyone that he actually liked.
With that, he asks her as she ever considers wanting it removed. She reply’s “To tell you the truth it’s been so often called a charm that I was simple enough to imagine it might be so.”(Hawthorn pg 230). He then asks her if he can remove it. Georgiana at first feels hurt by her husband’s request then His obsession slowly but surely becomes her obsession to the point where she even tell her husband “The attempt be made at whatever risk, danger is nothing to me; for life, while this hateful mark makes me the object of your horror and disgust, life is a burden which I would fling down with joy. Either remove this dreadful hand, or take my wretched life!
