He proves that he is that kind of person in many ways in every chapter. But to prove that he does, in this essay there will be quotes and scenes explained from in the book.

George says that Lennie always gets in trouble and George always has to sort it out he says “These here jail baits is just set on the trigger of the hoosegow”, this shows how George thinks that like Lennie is just like a gun with a finger on the trigger. He will go off at any moment and cause endless amounts of trouble, also “hoosegow” suggests that what Lennie is capable of is bad enough to send him to prison or as the end of the book shows an early death. However in spite of George’s ill feelings about Lennie’s capabilities he still stays with Lennie, because they have a commitment to each other. Despite the commitment to Lennie, George does seem slightly uneasy when Lennie enters the bunk house in this passage. He questions him about Curley’s wife “You sure that girl didn’t come in like she come in here today?” It shows how even though George is presented as the strongest of the pair, he still has weaknesses.

He know that's only a superstition, but he has always believed that if you think the very worst, then, no matter how bad things get they'll never get as bad as that. He explains that in his heart he has always been convinced that they can get pretty bad. The third reason why he writes horror stories is because he loves to scare people. He explains that the trick is to get the readers confidence. To get that confidence you want to be a friend of the reader, he wants to come up to the reader, put his arm around them and say “Hey, you want to see something?

Where most people would view slavery as a horrible yet solely physical affliction, Equiano gives valuable insights into its mental and psychological ramifications as well. It is evident that Gustavus Vasa was in constant turmoil. He lived in perpetual apprehension, fearing for his life on a continual basis: “I did not know what to think of these white people, though I very much feared they would kill and eat me” (Equiano 51). As a reader, one could make an attempt at empathy by, contemplating the happenstance of being born under Equiano’s same conditions as one’s own, being driven to the point of feeling the need to change one’s essence as Equiano did: “I therefore tried oftentimes myself if I could not by washing make my face of the same color as my little play-mate” (Equiano 57) and this alone would be sufficient grounds to conclude that slavery put chains not only on the body but on the soul as
Once more, hope is stressed to express the humanity of Iran as the people search and hang on to even a sliver of light in their dark times. Injustice is also present as the government is luring young boys to premature deaths. It demonstrates the flaws of the Iranian people, as they use their agency and do not always make the right decisions, a trait that is common among all people. Hence leading readers to think on how the people make mistakes and how they are ruled by a negligent type of government that has appeared and reoccurred throughout history. These symbols represent how Satrapi uses symbolism to express the similarities of nature between Iranians and the rest of the
The beast is a huge element of fear in the novel. The reason the fear is so great is because the beast is an unknown creature in the beginning, never seen, just a fear that grows bigger. Like JK Rowling said in Philosopher's Stone, “Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.” This paranoia of the beast drives them to insanity, they have the constant feeling as if they are being hunted, like Jack who says: “If you’re hunting sometimes you catch yourself feeling as if-” Jack flushed suddenly. “There’s nothing in it of course. Just a feeling, but-being hunted, as if something’s behind you all the time in the jungle.” This quote proves that fear spreads quickly, from the littluns to the biguns, caused by the beast.
When the witches foretell his Kingship, Macbeth’s immediate reaction is a wish to know more, immediately believing the prophecy, “He seems rapt withal / stay you imperfect speakers, tell me more” (I, iii), a stark contrast to the virtuous Banquo, who instead immediately becomes wary of the “instruments of darkness” and wonders whether they had “eaten on the insane root” (I,iii). In addition, when the second prophecy became a reality, Macbeth immediately thinks of murdering Duncan despite the Witches never advocating doing so. However, Macbeth is horrified at the imaginings that spring to his mind, showing that at this point he still has a moral conscience. “I am of Cawdor: / If good, why do I yield to that suggestion / Whose image doth unfix my hair” (I, iii, 143-145). Nonetheless, despite
He now lives in fear that the monster will kill him. That is also foreshadowed by the quotes “....I escaped..took refuge in the courtyard...listening attentively, catching and fearing each sound as if it were to announce the approach of the demoniacal corpse to which I had so miserably given life”. These quotes show that Frankenstein is truly afraid of what he has created and he will continue to run for his life. The Story of Frankenstein is one of terror and suspense, so diction is a very important aspect of this book, and specifically this passage. Shelley is an expert at selecting the right words to provoke the desired reaction upon whoever is reading her book.
