So sit back and try to make sense of me making sense of a character that thousands of other English students have tried to make sense of. Holden is a lonesome kind of a guy, as a good amount of teenagers are in the sense that he has a hard time fitting to someone. By that I mean he doesn't really click with any other person’s personality. He just sees everyone as a friendly acquaintance(besides Jane who he likes). Throughout the story he's always just about to call someone but always makes up an excuse not to.
This specific quote conveys the literary tool irony by expressing that Jim Smiley almost never loses on a gamble, but it is later unveiled to Twain’s audience that he does indeed lose this particular bet and he never considered the possibility of himself failing because he was overconfident. In addition, Simon Wheeler speaks to the narrator and conveys to him that, “Smiley was a good deal surprised, and he was disgusted too, but he didn’t have no idea what the matter was, of course.” (Pg. 690/P. 17/ Ln. 149-151/ Twain).

He is the prime example of a character that is easy to sympathize with or feel sorry for; however, the monster deserves a lot more sympathy than Victor does. Victor in a sense is the counterpart to the monster; he is surrounded by people who love him and cherish his company and thoughts. The monster on the other hand has no one to talk to, and is rejected by all even if though his heart is passionate. It is as the saying, ‘do not judge a book by its cover’,with the monster it is this way. He seems to be a very intelligent being, though he may be a little immature, this is all Victor’s doing.
Although he was quite young to be part of the greaser’s gang, Ponyboy Curtis showed many people that he could have been one of the greatest hero’s in the novel. Ponyboy is one of the few people in the story who respected others as well as Socs and did not enjoy fighting.

Literacy Narrative All writers write for different reasons; whether it be expressing his or her opinion on a particular subject, or recording factual data from an experiment that had previously been conducted.
