This statement about monsters and men made by Michele’s father is very ironic as his father is the “monster” who kidnaps Fillipo and hides him into a hole, not the “monsters” in his make-believe stories. As the two chapters progress, Michele experiences a change in his innocence. Michele alters his fears throughout chapter one and two. At first, Michele is frightened when he sees Fillipo’s leg and due to this instinct, he runs away: “I felt my ears boil, my head and arms hang heavy. I was going to pass out”p28.
Michelle's actions show and justify a belief that he has in a sense "lost his innocence". Michelle also shows maturity when he acknowledges that his father may not be a loving man, stating, "Papa was the bogeyman. By day he was good, by night he was bad". He realises that the adults are cruel and is astounded when he notices his father stating "two ears we'll cut off. Two!".

The atmosphere changes dramatically when we are introduced to Magwitch because his first line prettified Pip half to death. “Keep still you little devil or I’ll cut you throat” this makes us think he is an evil nasty man. It also makes us wonder why he is here and why he is threatening Pip. He is in a pretty bad way from what Dickens
The self analytical narrative by Gary Soto, a passage in which recreates the experience of his guilty six year old self, allows the reader to feel as if they were in the moment through the use of imagery, metaphors, and contrast. Poignant and recreatable, Gary Soto successfully instills a sense of guilt. With the use of imagery soto recreates his guilt of two conflicting standards of right and wrong. “..holy in almost every bone...all two hundred in his tiny body of three or four sins...”, the six year old Soto "knew enough about hell to stop." Yet his hunger overshadowed his conscious causing him to sin once more.
Furthermore, the protagonist, Paul Berlin, shows how the death of a fellow soldier affects him throughout the story. The irony of how Billy Boy dies drives the main character into an uncontrollable laughter. “The giggles were caught in his throat, drowning him in his own laughter: scared to death like Billy Boy” (O’Brien 737). He contemplates how Billy Boy died and realizes how sad but ironic the death is. As a result of trying to fight fear and stress, Paul reacts in such a
There are very heated exchanges by multiple of the men because of the one juror who couldn’t find the boy guilty.

He is therefore cruel to the family and to the society. He does not even know that he is a well-known thief. First, he mistreats his poor family.
The first stanza directly addresses the reader, he opens with two rhetorical questions, “Who are these? Why sit they here in twilight?” (1) These sentences are grammatically incorrect and use distorted language. This is symbolic of the disturbed and unstable minds of the soldiers. Using these questions he directly speaks to his audience as well as incorporating a major theme of the poem, insanity. “Drooping tongues from jaws that slob like relish.” (3) This line uses imagery to metaphorically compare men to animals and show how bad the condition of the soldiers really is.
Although the narrator can sympathise with the blood-curdling fear that the old man felt, he experiences some sort of sadistic pleasure in observing the man. Soon, the narrator hears dull thumping that he deduces to be the old man’s spiking heartbeat.
