Next, during the biased trial, Mr. Glimmer continuously addresses Tom rudely, calling him “boy”: “Had your eye on her a long time, hadn’t you boy?” and “…do all that chopping and hauling for her, boy” (263, 263). Then, Tom also faces a cruel, harsh death, the manner of which a white man would never receive; he receives “seventeen bullet holes in him,” while trying to escape prison (315). Second, Mr. Robinson does good for others, seeking nothing in return. Every time Tom passes the Ewell residence, Mayella has a task for him to accomplish, such as chopping fireweed and toting water. Tom accepts no money for his assistance and is glad to be helping out to the best of his abilities.
There is lots of wrath in this novella. Marlow is chatting with the bricklayer about how he and Mr. Kurtz want rivets. This made the bricklayer become very cold, and started to talk about an old hippo who would wander around the station during night. The pilgrims would empty their rifles at it. It was a waste of energy.
Back in medieval Europe, there was a lack of medical knowledge therefore the preventions of catching the bubonic plague were very weird and some were very useless. Some preventions were to keep isolated in houses were everybody was healthy and was not sick. Some ran away leaving their families and houses escaping to the countryside. An extreme prevention was the flagellants which went round to towns beating themselves until they bled; this was done because to show remorse and regrets for the sins they did and that their pain would help God to stop the plague. “…they were men who did public penance and scourged themselves with whips of hard knotted leather with little iron spikes.

Spill the blood!” (174,175) Reasoning: No civil person would repeatedly state this phrase. This definitely represents savagery. It shows how bloodthirsty these boys are and then when they recite this while murdering Simon; it makes it even more gruesome. They’re so consumed in all the blood that they don’t even realize they had killed Simon until it is too late. • “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.” (235) Reasoning: This quote that was stated at the end of the book shows the reader and myself that the world of savagery only leads to murder and sorrow.
The blind De Lacey is proficient in distinguishing the sincerity in the monster’s voice when confronted by him. Presented that De Lacey is unfit to examine the shell that enclosed the beast’s true nature, the wretch was for the first time welcomed by another being. It was not until the remaining peasants returned to the cottage that the peace was destroyed. The compassion-desiring creature is repeatedly beat, by Felix, with a stick that came from the firewood that the monster so generously collected. The wretch flees the scene only to feel “rage and revenge” (Shelley 137) amidst his educators.

John heard of this and in his fury had Geoffrey imprisoned in chains, clad in a cope made of lead and starved. Geoffrey died an agonising death.’ I don’t think this source is a trustworthy source because he can’t tell us the name or the whereabouts of the sheriff. Roger tells us that John let a robber that murdered a priest go because it was an enemy of his but government records show that John ordered anyone killing a priest
We are first introduced to the Ewell family in a negative light, influencing the reader to presume that the whole family follows this trait, as is thought in Maycomb County due the exceeding amount of family stereotypes in this city. This introduction to way of the Ewell’s life is given before the start of the Tom Robinson Trial, to show us that they are deceptive and would attempt anything to achieve their cynical goal of punishing an honest, non-guilty black man. Their cabin looked “like the playhouse of an insane child: what passed for a fence was bits of tree limbs, broomsticks and tool shafts, all tipped with rusty hammer-heads…axes …held on with pieces of barbed wire”. This listing of harsh metals along with the hard alliteration sounds
