Hoping to end relations between Daisy and Jay, Tom did not hold back when confronting Gatsby. This whole situation is very ironic considering Tom is also having an affair with Myrtle and Daisy knows all about it. Tom only thought about himself and his image and got terribly mad because there was the chance of him losing his wife. George Wilson, compared to Tom, acts a lot like him except the abusiveness towards his wife, Myrtle. George owned a gas station in the Valley of Ashes and was very poor.
When Lil Bit first began being taken advantage of she didn’t know what was happening and that it wasn’t ok. She didn’t have someone like Sister A. there to tell her that she needed to be protected. Similar to the way that Father Flynn is presented as a overall good guy, Vogel attempted to create Uncle Peck as a very flawed human being, using pathos in order to try to make the reader connect with him. However its not that simple to make the audience connect with a pedophile. Lil Bit has a monologue where she pities her uncle and wonders what happened to him to make
For example, her parents were racists because they did not allow their daughter to date Indians while he comes from an open-minded family who loved him dearly. For instance, Junior’s parents transferred him to Reardon because they want the best for him, but they also warn him that change will be hard. In conclusion, even though there are extreme differences between Penelope and Junior, both feel lonely
That is not the way one fights for a cause. Liberal as he maybe, these little actions seem more like that of a kid lashing at his mom out of resentment. He resented every part of his mother, from her florid hat, down to her outright racism because she reminded him of everything he once was, backwards thinking and racist. I also think that the author is trying to point out that, there is no use pretending to be someone you are not. At first glance, Julian seems to be a good guy.
To Mr. Shears Christopher invaded his life with Judy, which Christopher does not understand I feel empathy for Christopher but as well I also feel that Christopher is a very selfish person. Christopher was very selfish when he ran away from his dad, It was also very selfish of him to show up at his mothers house and expect her to take care of him now. The one thing in my mind I found extremely selfish was Christopher expecting his mother to move back to Swindon so he could take a math course, yes A level maths was important to Christopher but London roger and Judy’s job was very important to Judy but Christopher didn’t see past his own needs. “I’m going to get an a grade, And that’s why I
Just a knighthood, of course.” He says this because he knows that Gerald Croft’s mother doesn’t like them because she has a higher social class and thinks that Gerald can do better for himself than marrying Sheila Birling – Arthur Birling’s daughter. Priestly has portrayed Birling in such a way that the reader doubts what he says and is weary that the things he comes out with are usually wrong. When Birling talks about the Titanic he says “unsinkable – absolutely unsinkable” Priestley uses dramatic irony here because the reader knows that the Titanic sank.
"Sure." Unfortunately Krebs is too caught up in his own world to be his sister’s older brother and to show her why this mindset she has is wrong. There comes a point where both of Krebs’s parents are fed up with his laziness and his unwillingness to do anything with his life that his mother sits him down and tries to approach him in a more of a religious way. She speaks of God and how much they love him and want the best for him. "I'm your mother," she said.
“He is a sinner, a sinner not only against the moral fashion but against his own vision of decent conduct." Despite all the power and respect he appears to have in Salem, this still has an effect on his conscience which troubles him throughout the play. This effect is evident in John’s relationships with people, especially with his wife Elizabeth Proctor. When Proctor tries to re-establish his relationship with Elizabeth he says “I mean to please you Elizabeth” although he becomes angered when his wife does not forgive him completely, “You forgive nothing and forget nothing” and “An everlasting funeral marches round your heart”. Proctor’s good conscience allows him to still care for Elizabeth; this is shown when she is accused of
"He ashamed, and wants to tell her so, but it's not for him to apologize. He hasn't earned the right" (Page 176) - I found this quote to be significant because I felt that it showed Dragan's character and how the guilt had built up within him. It showed us how Dragan felt remorse for what happened to Emina but he also felt that he wasn't worthy enough to own up to it. He felt that since he never helped her, well she was shot. So he feels he's unworthy of showing her, his remorse because he never tried to help her in the first place.
Mrs. Mooney was previously involved in a dysfunctional marriage to a “shabby stooped little drunkard” (61). Similar to her own marriage, Mrs. Mooney indirectly forces Polly to marry for money. Mrs. Mooney is a ruthless character as a result of her previous troubles. Consequently, Mrs. Mooney’s maternal connection with Polly is non-existent, turning their relationship into a business. When Mrs. Mooney is observing Polly’s interactions with young men, she becomes frustrated that “none of [the men] meant business” and considers sending Polly back to her previous job (63).
