If we were all responsible for everything that happened to everybody we’d had anything to do with, it would be very awkward” this further emphasises Birlings ignorance and cowardice attitude towards responsibility within society. He doesnt want to expect that he has anything to do with the death of a lower class citizen as he doesn't think they have the same rights and feelings. “i can't” implies he isn't willing to try and understand, he is so narrow minded and stuck in his way that he won't even attempt to understand what he has done is in fact at all wrong. Mr Birling doesn't think about what his actions are doing to others and what they are affecting. This is equally due to his age and the society he is surrounded by.
He makes the anticipation of bad news worse than the bad news itself. As Kumalo “arrives” at the point of sorrow, it is a relief because although he still feels crushed to know all that has become of his son is a murderer, he at least stands on solid ground. This is shown when he goes to visit his son before the trial and loses respect for his brother because his brother refuses to try to grieve. He knows that by refusing to do so, his brother is also refusing to heal. Kumalo knows that there is no purpose in extending the journey, because then he would just be extending the pain.
This action leads to him being considered a tragic hero. Creon’s human flaw of arrogance causes him to ignore reasoning and advice and listen only to his own thoughts. He states, "My voice is the one voice giving orders in this city". He is afraid to go back on his word because it will hurt his pride and he is afraid that it will cause him to lose power with his subjects. This action causes him to lose everyone that he loves.
I think this is because his family, especially his siblings Dewey Dell and Jewel, truly do not understand Darl’s positive intentions. Instead, they are just weirded out by his actions because they are too simple-minded and self centered to understand someone else’s motives who do not match their own, making him that much more subjective to be labeled as crazy. Not only do his intellectually inferior siblings misunderstand Darl, but also his own mother never liked
He would not tell anyone of the reason behind his sorrow, and this secrecy and guilt would manifest itself through illness. Every time someone dies, Victor feels more sorrowful and guiltier, yet he never reveals why he feels this way and quickly falls ill. He becomes a burden to those who care, as they have to take care of him. This time, it’s different, (which can be interpreted as an indicator that the climax is near), and by the end of the passage, Victor doesn’t feel that he’s helpless in this situation, in fact, he is determined to do something for his loved ones instead, and this time, Victor is not afraid of the monster, he will face the monster. This is indicated at the end of the passage, as Victor realizes that postponing the wedding will not bind the monster, and it may get revenge in some other, more horrifying way.
Amir discovers how badly he treated Hassan in their past, that he wants to make up for it. I personally do not believe that Amir finds redemption because although he wants to redeem himself, he is only thinking of himself again. He never adopts Sohrab out of the goodness of his heart but
“I'm Andy, he screamed wordlessly, I'm Andy.” (P. 196) He began to hate his identity as a Royal and he want to die as Andy. Being a Royal was not important for Andy anymore. Being himself meant much more than being a Royal. At the same time, he also realized that he was going to miss a lot of meaningful things that he hadn’t even started yet. He was mourning how short to end up his life.
According to the boss, “nothing so aggravates an earnest person as a passive resistance.” “The passiveness of Bartleby sometimes irritated me. I felt strangely goaded on to encounter him in new opposition-to elicit some angry spark from him answerable to my own.” (Melville 13) Bartleby’s refusals in the office escalated and became more frequent. Finally, one day he declared, “I have given up copying” (Melville 21), and he stopped working completely. He totally shut down- incapable of meeting the demands of Wall Street society. The boss had no choice but to fire Bartleby.
He states, “For whom I should be hanged.” This shows that e is unhappy of the truth and how sick it makes him feel. It tells the audience that he doesn’t have much to live for anymore and that he just wants to be gone where his voice can’t be heard. He also states, “My load is mine, don’t fear; no man could bear so much.” In other words, the immediate reaction he gives is that no one can go through the pain and suffering that he had to deal with and how much it can degrade yourself. Oedipus strongest use of rhetoric is symbolism that is to have significant meaning. He states.
Someone who blames everyone else for the consequences of their actions? Someone who doesn't own-up to their actions and try to make the situation better again? Cole is that 'someone'. He goes to the island mad at his parents because all the other times that he was in trouble with the law, his parents would pay the fees and get him out, however, this time, none of that happens. It was his mistake for beating up Peter anyways, yet he's mad at his parents and his lawyer because they didn't get him out.
