He was not waving, as the bystanders assumed he was, but he was always drowning. In the second stanza we hear the cold, patronizing view of the people around him; “Poor chap, he always loved larking”. This use of third person narrative really detaches the reader from the scene and allows for unbiased judgment. The short sentences, leaving no room for emotion, are used to express the bystanders dismissive tone. This shows that they are trivializing and uncaring.
On page 18, Gene admitted his envy towards Phineas. He thought, “It was hypnotism. I was beginning to see that Phineas could get away with anything. I couldn’t help envying him…” Gene was an introvert, while Phineas was an extrovert. His jealously of Finny’s trait increased throughout the novel because Finny continued to smooth-talk to get out of trouble.

In this story he inspired me that when the going gets tough or when you want to give up on what you really want, to always follow through. Because most of the time you will end up getting what you wanted all along. The proverb “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” greatly reminds me of John Grady because when his grandfather died, whom he was very close with, he never gave up. His grandfather was basically a father to him. He was always there for him, they always had fun on the ranch together, and most of all they both had a special love for horses.
‘Pigrogromitus of the vapians passing the Equinoctial of Quebus’ is the rubbish that he fondly remembers. He is also quite stupid for not realising that Sir Toby is conning him and is a coward for not trying to win Olivia’s heart himself. Feste is witty and preys on the absent-minded, (Sir Andrew). He makes quick remarks and likes to make a fool of Sir Andrew. He only does the fooling
Any other person would be less likely to put up with an editor consistently firing him, but Quoyle endures others' disrespect as if he does not believe he deserves to be treated any better. He cries when he stains all of his laundry; he is not only a failure, but he is also resigned to his status as such. “Ah you lout,” said the father. But no pygmy himself. And brother Dick, the father's favorite, pretended to throw up when Quoyle came into a room, hissed, “Lardass, Snotface, Ugly Pig, Warthog, Stupid, Stinkbomb, Fart-tub, Greasebag,” pummeled and kicked until Quoyle curled.
Crooks really resents this fact which has made him cruel, self-pity, gruff and accepting the stage of being less human than the others. As he says "If I say something, why it's just a nigger sayin' it" showing his anger about being pushed to the side. He says to Lennie "You got no right to come in my room.....You go on get outa my room. I ain't wanted in the bunkhouse and you ain't wanted in my room." He continues by saying that the whites believe he stinks and one can interpret this as a way of saying that the whites would find it a disgrace that a nigger should breathe the same bunkhouse air as them.

The way he was raised plays a role on the way he still lives. Grendel focuses too much on his reputation, he is a outcast and listens to the shapers stories about him. “I have become myself, the mama I’d searched the cliffs for in vain”(pg.80). In Beowulf the similarity is that Beowulf had a lot of the same qualities as Grendel, like how much Beowulf focused on his reputation. Beowulf always wants attention and to know how others view him, but he is also a outcast.
One of the conversations Pip had with Joe was very awkward. During this conversation, Joe forgave Pip for his corruption: “Pip, dear old chap, life is made of ever so many partings welded together, as I may say, and one man’s a blacksmith, and one’s a whitesmith, and one’s a goldsmith, and one’s a coppersmith. Diwisions among such must come, and must be met as they come.” All the people Pip once called his friends, were now only mere embarrassments that were not as good as he was. Another character that shows this example is Estella. Estella is much more arrogant than Pip is.
