He knows he will have to kill Mr. and Mrs. Coggio also, although they are not who he is after, but he enjoys their perfectionism. He never had a mother and father that loved him, or cared for him like they care for their children. He enjoys knowing all of their secrets, it gives him a feeling of control. He knows he can accomplish the task of taking their life because he says “their father is old, and bowlegged.” Their father is not a threat to his young and strong body.
Wart is a very good person, but his actions always seem to go overlooked by everyone. One prime example of this is when Kay brought the griffin head and Wart brought Wat as a reward for saving the trapped prisoners. Wat was a mad man but Wart believed that Merlyn could have cured him. Wart obviously has the right intentions and put the well being of others his top priority. When the boys come back home, everyone seems disgusted to see Wat back but everyone seems proud of Kay especially Sir Ector.

Augustine just got a thrill out of doing what was wrong. He said, “My desire was to enjoy not what I sought by stealing but merely the excitement of thieving and the doing of what was wrong”. This act of destruction seems to have a very adverse effect on Augustine’s psyche when he is older and in his confessions he spends a huge amount of time on this small insignificant event that to most people would just be something stupid he did as a child. Yet Augustine dwells on it and feels that since he sin came so easy to him, especially as a child, then people must be born with some inherent need to commit sin. When he talks about the original sin, he says that he used it as an excuse to sin, and that he would take great delight in it.
The mother may be the birth mother and be related by blood but she sure doesn’t show any love toward her handicapped daughter that she abandoned. The dull and tasteless tone/style of the story express the love between Linda and her adopted and birth family. The tone never really changes; it always stays in a slightly sad and depressing language. Through out the whole paper there is very little description. When Linda is talking about how clean her mother Betty tried the kids and how dirty the dad always got them, she just says exactly that and nothing more; “Betty was always trying to keep us clean, and Albert was always getting us

Because of this Tom tells Myrtle that he and Daisy cannot get a divorce because she is a Christian. It is evident that he is not happy being married to Daisy because he has an affair with Myrtle.
He is obviously biased against his father and wants his mother’s sole attention. This point of view provides humor because Larry thinks that he actually belongs in his father’s place, as his mother’s sole companion. Sexuality is involved in the story’s humor because the boy sees his mother as a spouse and he thinks that they can have children together. 3. Larry calls it irony that his prayers were answered because he prayed that his father would return from the war, and when his father actually returns from the war, he wishes that he would leave again.
