He is based on Jack Kerouac in real life. By the end, Sal is sick of traveling around and Dean’s crazy antics and leaves him. Dean: Dean is a former convict who is eventually freed. He is portrayed as a hero in the book, yet he is also extremely flawed. He does not seem to feel remorse for any of his actions, sleeping with and marrying several girls such as Marylou, Camille, and Inez.
He says, It took me quite a while to get to sleep- I wasn’t even tired- but finally I did. (104) Holden had a quarrel with Maurice that night about a prostitute and how Holden didn’t pay her enough money. Holden feels sorry for the woman because when she got there he didn’t feel like having sex with her, especially because before she showed up he wasn’t even sure he wanted to give up his virginity at all. Holden is indecisive about all the things he should have his mind made up on, which partly explains why he has such a problem sleeping. If Holden could simply clear his mind for once, he would be able to get a good
In the movie “gentleman’s agreement, Phil Green was clearly discriminated against. Gentleman’s agreement means an agreement guaranteed only by the pledged word or unspoken understanding of the parties. In this case, this is an informal agreement that the hotel is off limit to Jewish people. However, this form of discrimination is very subtle but everybody is aware of it. Phil was asked nicely to find another hotel because the hotel is full and there is no space available for him.
The people there get so inebriated that they often do not remember whom they came with or even who their spouse is. They attend parties like this every weekend, with no regard for their health or how their behavior will affect others. Many of the guests were not even invited to the party formally; they are present because they feel as if their wealth entitles them to such freedom. “Once there they were introduced by someone who knew Gatsby, and after that they conducted themselves according to the rules of behavior associated with an amusement park” (Fitzgerald 41). These people come and go, discarding any rules there might be about attending events such as parties.
The changing personal beliefs of the individual are also exceedingly negative. Many societies now have mainstream beliefs about many subjects including the fashion. These societies have now upheld the beliefs that had no similarity with their own and as such their culture is abandoned. While technological advances have been made in developing countries as a result of cultural imperialism. Those cultures have been seriously degraded into the typical mainstream culture.
After Odysseus reveals himself to the swineherd and cowherd in book 21, he said: “If a god beats down the lofty suitors at my hands, I’ll find you wives, both of you, grant you property” (ll.240-241). This was Eumaeus’ reward for giving good hospitality. Odysseus would find him a wife, and even give him a house, instead of looking after swine for all his life and living in a hut. Thus, because Eumaeus was a good host, he was rewarded with property and was treated well. In contrast, an example of a bad host was Polyphemus.
Lucius speaks candidly about is past, realizing the way he lived was not only reprehensible but also hurt him later in life (line 19-20). So he bemoans his fate with the other shades, like Dante (lines 17-18), so the presence of shades implies Lucius to be in a place where the formerly alive congregate, perhaps hell since that is where Dante is said to spend the rest of his existence. However I personally think Lucius is not in hell at all, for in hell who would he present this speech to? The judges of the underworld know your crimes without you telling them and do not care for your remorse or regret over actions you did in life. So I theorize that Lucius is not in hell, that he is in fact at Mayer’s restaurant, telling his tale not to please himself but to warn others off of his path.
They, the robbers, then left him half dead on the side of the road. A priest was going down the same road, but when the priest saw the man, he just turned away and walked towards the other side of the road (Luke 10:31). Meanwhile-later on, another person had come along the same side of the road; this person was a Levite, and he also saw the man who was half beaten, but the Levite also had turned away from helping this man, and walked in the opposite direction (Luke 11:32). Next came a Good Samaritan traveler (Luke 11:33), the Samaritan had a good heart, and was compassionate towards this beaten man. The parable of the Good Samaritan is definitely a picture of everyday life, because it happens quite a bit in this world.
In the first part of the poem, the inhabitants of the old people's home are largely objectified. They are not described as human beings, so much as categorized by what they can do. However, it hints of humanity peeking through as the author describes the tie that unites them all in the way they have been deserted by their families and stowed away like luggage. There is some suggestion that the "elite" might be unhappy because they are actually conscious of their surroundings. The average majority are said to "endure" TV, which again hints that these people might actually have the ability to experience pleasure.
In one of the scenes Mr. Murdstone beats him as a result he bites his finger off. But rebellion does not seem a successful idea for David. He pays for it and sends to Salem house where he has experienced another kind of tyranny. In many modern readers point of view his step father is not solely responsible for his sufferings but his mother too. She is just a silent spectator on David miseries.
