Also, Grant used to be a very hostile man and he didn't care for anything but from visiting Jefferson he started to care about his life and the things in it, he dedicated his whole self to helping Jefferson become a man and he would get into arguments defending his choices with his aunt even if she was very important to him and they never fought. This is greatly shown when Grant is on a visit with Jefferson along with his aunt, Emma and the reverend Grant talks to Jefferson and tells him how he needs him and how he is someone who can do so much while he cant, then he began to cry. This shows how Grant wants to make a change in his life. Grant is a person who goes from being miserable and only cares for himself into someone who can love other things in life and fights for
“Slept soundly through the lonesome dark, and whistled early with the lark.” It describes the place where he was, to be unbearable and a terrible condition for a boy to be in. The poet wants the mood to be this way because he is trying to portray the negativity of war to the audience. The tone of this poem near the end is in a shameful tone. “You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye who cheer when soldier lads march by,” Sassoon is ashamed of the crowd who are shallow and are only cheering for the young soldiers to go to war and know that not all will return, they do not understand the hardship that the young soldiers have to go through and he is ashamed
“…Every day in his soul he shot Richard…”(108). He’d always worry about all the little dangers and it is ironic that the actual fatal harm done to his son was the unthinkable huge crime of being shot. The fact that the killer would get out of jail at the exact age he was now is an example of Oedipus complex “There must be
Is Willy Lowman A Tragic Hero? A tragic hero is depicted as a character that undergoes a series of unfortunate events but throughout time, achieving a revelation or recognition. However, this is not the case for Willy Lowman. Willy, like many others, longed to achieve the ‘American Dream’ but he was so caught up in this idea that he had slowly been tearing apart not only himself, but his family as well. His youngest son Happy, forever living in the shadows of his older brother, believed every word Willy had spoke about the world.
Even though Jefferson is the one that is locked up, Grant is also, in a sense, in jail. He has had so many opportunities to leave his town and find a better life, but decides to stay because he feels like he has no control over his life. Grant’s first few visits to Jefferson don’t go so well. Grant has a very negative attitude towards the situation because he has no idea what he can do to turn Jefferson into a man. He feels as if it is a lost cause.

Jefferson was put on trial because he just happened to be in the convenience store at the wrong time. When the convenience store clerk was found dead, and Jefferson was there collecting the money from the register, he was automatically accused of the crime without a fair trial. During the trial, not only was the entire white jury against him, but his lawyer who calls him a hog, as well. Just because Jefferson is an African American at a time of segregation, he is sentenced to death, causing the inevitable. Racial injustice is a huge wrong of our judicial system in the past, and continues to be in some cases.
We are introduced to him as being “…afraid to go to sleep.” As this was the very first words we see- it emphasises the difficulties he was suffering from the realities of war from the start. The adjective “afraid” highlights that although he was physically exhausted- his brain was damaged from the war and as a result he couldn’t sleep due to the mental damage. Therefore he was worsening his health by sleep deprivation. However, within the last few pages the adjectives describe him to be “…happy and soothed…” Immediately this is a shock to the reader as these adjectives seem very ironic to what we’ve ever known Hilliard to be. It is evident the tranquillity and change within Hilliard- we can see how Barton has rubbed his optimistic attitude off on him.
He recognizes that the brother of his dying partner never got to experience love like he did—the fear of abnormality held him back from being able to fully open his heart to the eccentricities of his brother’s personality. The excellent writing of Lassell helps connect this theme in the beginning, middle, and end of the poem. Throughout the entire reading, you feel sorrow for the partner, and losses he had and are experiencing currently. Although the love between the two lovers is strong, there is a
