He did not have a choice and therefore he hated everything about serving other than the friend he made and the good times they shared together. Telling stories is what helps him find peace where there was none to be found. “How to Tell a True War Story” evaluates the relationship between war experience, storytelling, and friendship as a soldier’s insight is manipulated by the Vietnam War. Kiley’s reaction to his best friend Lemon’s death results to a strong representation of cruelty and suffering. “War is nasty; war is fun.
Red explains “inside his and important man, an educated man, outside his nothing”. Brooks hands on the bus seat is symbolic of his lack of experience in the real world. The shot of him trying to cross the road shows how fast the real world is, in the end he feels that the intitution has gotten the better of him and decides to hang himself is shown through “ I doubt they’ll kick up any fuss, not for an old crook like me” where as Brett becomes compliance after his return from escaping the farm. Brett realises his wrong actions, mistakes and attitudes, admits this to Josh “you know how you told me I was hurting my friends, I didn’t know I was until you told me” From this we see a dramatic change in Brett as he comes to full discovery, thus josh plays an important rule in Bretts compliance as well as his own self discovery. Compliance is also shown in “shawshank redemption” through the first dialogue Andy has with Red “to smuggle Rita Hayworth into the prison” Red explains “I liked Andy from the start” shows friendship between the two cons.
Under my consideration, Jack is known for symbol of savagery. In the beginning, Jack was close to Ralph and helping him out through this survival. But when the days went by, Jack had lost his patience and being pessimistic about no one will find them and had put all the kids against Piggy, Simon, and Ralph. As Jack grew stronger, he became a savage including the littleluns. The start of story, the boys brought them to a plane crash in an island.
Joe’s actions, in his own sense, are justified in that during the Great Depression there’s a do or die way of life throughout the country, further showing that not only is he unaware of his morally wrong doing because he is one of many, but because it is a human instinct to do whatever it takes to survive. Arthur Miller’s All My Sons depicts the human tendency of betrayal and guilt which leads to the decay and degeneration of human values in the Keller family. To begin with, one should not fathom that Joe Keller did not understand what he had done. As told by William Dillingham, “Joe Keller’s trouble,” Miller writes, “is not that he cannot tell right from wrong but that his cast of mind cannot admit that he, personally, has any viable connection with his world, his universe, or his society” (Dillingham 83). Whether Joe did this intentionally or was driven to think in this way is up for debate.
Granger believes that when people change even a small part of the world thoughtfully and deliberately, they leave behind enough of their roots to enable other people to mourn them properly.Granger’s story about his grandfather, with its moral about the importance of leaving one’s mark on the world, resonates with Montag’s desire to leave a meaningful legacy. From the beginning of the novel he has been growing increasingly dissatisfied with a life based on empty pleasures and devoid of real connections to other people. With the help from Granger, Montag now realized that because Mildred hardly ever did anything, he did not miss her. Montag thinks back to Faber’s words, promising him that Montag would be as a brother. That is Montag-plus-Faber, fire plus water which would mix and turn into wine.
Lennie- a genuinely nice person, has nice smile that tempted Crooks to let him in 69. Lennie- forgetful- forgets that George told him not to tell anyone about his dream 70. Loneliness- colored people are alone in the world, Crooks recounts his history of being alone 71. Not having contact with much people gives him idea to scare Lennie 72. Lennie’s stupidity allows him to believe that someone hurt George even though Crooks is just assuming 72.
There is no room for compromise in the world he now inhabits. Only 24 years old and not a risk-taker, as demonstrated by his chaste relationship with Martha, Cross has the safety of his men in his hands, and he cannot juggle two priorities; as the text states, “He was just a kid at war, in love.” Cross’s method of symbolic reasoning finds further emphasis in his digging of a foxhole that night and crawling inside, thus repeating the fantasy playing out in his head in the moments before Lavender’s death. There he comes to the realization that Martha “did not love him and never would,” a fact obvious to the story’s readers. With his love for Martha forbidden to him — or at the least, transformed into a “hard, hating kind of love” — Jimmy Cross turns to what can substitute as its
LORD OF THE FLIES PRACTICE ATB The novel Lord of the Flies (LOTF) written by William Golding is about a group of boys who survive through a plane crash and land in an unknown island during the period of WWII. The use of themes throughout the text are used to teach us about humanity. Golding effectively uses themes to teach us about the many negatives of humanity. Some of these are the violence and savagery released by greed, the loss of innocence of children and the fatal consequences of removing law and order from a community. Humans often resort to violence and savagery due to their own greed.
A second way in which these two characters are similar is that they both respect other people’s privacy. Atticus has stopped Jem and Scout many times from disturbing Boo Radley; because he knows Boo likes to be alone. Atticus: “I’m going to tell you something and tell you one time: stop tormenting that man. That goes for the other two of you.” (Page 49, Line 10). In the same way, Michael doesn’t want to talk to Lincoln because he knows that they are completely different people and there is no point of meeting.
He was repulsed even though the man had actually moved home because he knew he was dying. Even though Jerry was raised in a small, conservative community Jerry’s comments were what was repulsing. The hard headed, pea brained Jerry could not understand that homosexuals are everywhere, even in 1987. The only difference is that today we do not feel the need to hide as much, though obviously there are still places where today I wouldn’t vocalize the point that I’m gay. But In 1987 gay marriage was not being thought of, there was no place in America where homosexuals could marry, this gave Jerry more ease in being adamantly opposed to this AIDS positive homosexual who moved home to die.
