Overreaching Don’t Pay (pg 186) Huck cannot stand the frauds anymore when he sees Mary-Jane crying over the slaves sold and have their families separated, so he tells Mary-Jane the truth about the frauds and devises a plan to jail the king and his duke, which Huck feels proud of because even “Tom Sawyer couldn’t ’a’ done it no neater himself” (195).

30/9/11 Room 101: Wasps Wasps. They are annoying, pointless and persistent pests. Perpetually prodding people with their pricks, you know their stinger, they poison people without reason. When I was 8, I had a horrific experience with one of these foul creatures. I wanted to go out on my bike so I went to the shed to get my helmet, unknowing of the evil that lurked within.
This is nothing but a sad story of a teenage boy gone from good to bad, who leads other kids into his “revenge” against the higher class. Their mission is to destroy an innocent man’s house and their reason is because it is still standing from the Blitzkrieg of London. 7) Though each and every individual in the Wormsley Common Gang is a delinquent, the whole gang itself has qualities which can be smiled upon. The gang’s values are flipped compared to other, usual gangs. First of all, they reject personal gain, forget personal rivalries, and maintain their own justice within their gang framework.
The most prominent tension is presented between the older and younger generations. There is tension between Mr Birling and Eric throughout the play but their relationship is shown best in an exchange after Mr Birling discovers Eric is a thief, a drunkard and responsible for fathering Eva’s child ‘You damned fool – why didn’t you come to me when you found yourself in this mess’. Eric’s reply that his father was not ‘the kind of chap a man could turn to when he’s in trouble’ indicates that there is some connection missing between them, which has been harmed by tension. Mr Birling is portrayed as a neglectful and unapproachable father who would have used his position to prevent a family scandal rather than show sympathy for his son who is clearly unhappy with no direction in life. His treatment of Eric has led to Eric’s downfall so that ironically his earlier words that a man has to look after himself and his own seem hollow.
In the poem “Glasgow 5th March 1971” by Edwin Morgan the poet has created very vivid images by using metaphors and unusual word orders. To summarise what happens in the poem, a man and his girlfriend are pushed through a glass window of a shop in Glasgow by two youths looking to steal items from the shop. The poem is written in an impersonal way. The poet does not give his own opinions on the situation described, therefore the reader can draw their own conclusions. The title of the poem gives the effect of a newspaper headline which is also impersonal, leaving the pictures in the readers mind very chilling and sinister, although most of the images are created by metaphors.
When he was only a boy, he was arrogant, proud, impatient, and full of spite, but still boasted greatly about his amazing magical talents. When Ged first gained these bad personality traits, the action began. It continued when Ogion tried to correct him and Ged pushed him away. When he encounters the shadow at the end of the novel, he realizes that it was his bad qualities; fused together to make a hateful creature meant to haunt him, and to teach him to correct his faults. In doing so, he lost some time from his youth due to spending numerous years chasing and hiding from the shadow.
Other characters also help build a picture of Birling in the opening section. Eric's defense of the workers brings about a vicious verbal attack from Birling which pours scorn on Eric's lack of business experience and reveals his bitter feeling towards "public-school-and-Varsity" education. Priestley suggests he resents the advantages enjoyed by his son's generation and this helps the audience understand why later Eric says that Mr Birling is "not the kind of father a chap would go to when hes in trouble". At this point, Priestley has provided a picture of a self-important man who places his faith in technology and industry, who believes he can enjoy the rewards granted by the community while declaring that community spirit is "nonsense" and that a man has to "mind his own business and look after himself and his own". Yet Eric, at this start of the Inspector's chain of events' has already challenged his father's views, and later Sheila will do the same by recognising a shared humanity with the
An invisible-like character such as Boo Radley is commonly accost to gossip and rumors whispered about him, children are told gruesome, bone rattling stories by one another and frightened by the thought of a man whom they realistically know nothing about.The true malfeasance of this is that he has always prolonged exception and trust. Without the Finch children ever knowing, or understanding, Boo Radley had secretly given them small gifts, and kept watchful eyes on them, eventually leading to him finally gaining those affections he’s always wanted. For example, in the first few pages of To Kill a Mockingbird, Jem is exaggeratedly describing to his younger sister Scout, and good friend Dill, a faint memory of what Boo was like “‘... judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were blood stained… There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face;what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he
Roger, on the other hand, is quite the opposite to Ralph,”There was a slight fugitive boy that no one knew, who kept to himself with an inner intensity of avoidance and secrecy.” We can see that Roger is a shy boy and keeps to himself. Majority of the boys start a transformation but we can particularly see it in Jack, “the mask was a thing of its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness.” The mask and face paint remove any inhibitions the boys had. Piggy, a symbol for clear thinking and order, forewarns the boys about what they are becoming, “What are we? Humans? Or animals?
One other group lead by Jack is what made this island a danger to everyone. Having someone to look up to and to look after you is good and bad. The reason for this is because, as a leader, you are either loved or feared. In this case, Ralph is the on who all the kids look up to and love, but when one gets jealous they rebel. Jack’s jealousy in this book is unbearable, you never
