As much as Luke claims he cares about the river’s state of being, it seems that he’s more worried about the actual principle of it and the fear of future disturbances of the Tamassee. Ruth’s parents, Ellen and Herb Kowalsky, obviously did not care at all about the laws they would violate, they were miserable over the loss of their daughter and were willing to fight endlessly to get her body out and give her a proper burial. The local farmers like Maggie’s dad, cousins, and friends, were not clear on the side they were on. They felt bad for the Kowalsky’s and were sick of being told

Society had thrown out Oakhurst, Duchess and Mother Shipton for them being themselves; by living their successes they were condemned. The lovers left society because they knew their union wouldn’t be accepted. This is an example in literature about how the society in real life didn’t accept people who were living out their lives on their terms and not according to any unspoken rules that were expected to follow. Though all of the outcasts were looked down upon and their lives were cut short by the storm that forced premature death they had been living the new American success by being themselves and not letting society dictate their every decision. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain show both how society still tries to shape individuals and how Huck lives his own success.
They continued to believe that they were perfectly justified for how they treated Eva Smith and that they were not at all involved in her horrific suicide. They did not like the Inspector from the beginning and this may be because he is a figure of authority and they do not like to be told what to do or think. They like to be the ones in control. We know this because Birling says to the Inspector “I don’t see why we have to tell you anything. In fact, there’s nothing I can tell you.
Chelsea Mackenzie Inspector Calls - Critical Evaluation "Responsibility is the ability or authority to act on one's own,withourt supervision." Through suspicion,drama and love, J.B Priestley explores the theme of responsibility. Priestley shows his views about resposibility successfully through the main characters in the play. "An Inspector Calls" explains how any single action people make can have a large effect on others and how people need to seriously consider their actions before they do anything.

The dimension between the two characters create and showcase personal and social tensions throughout the play by utilising comedic and serious anecdotes, with dialogue and theatrical techniques. The play has other characters that are crucial to the main character such as Ben and Martin, but focuses primarily on the unlikely duo and their path of friendship. As a result of the also non-linear narrative which is presented in two acts, from a staging perspective, it is a challenging piece due to the sporadic changes in time and location. However through the use of sound, lighting and props, the personal and social tensions between the characters can be expressed on stage. The individual experiences explored in Neighbourhood Watch include a variety of theatrical techniques and utilises performance styles, whilst incorporating animal symbolism as a motif.
How do Iago and Cassio differ in Act 2 Scene 3? Shakespeare uses a number of techniques to convey to the reader the idea of trust. This idea stems from the concept of doubt and deceit, showing us that whom we may truly believe to be the ones trying to help us and be friendly to us in our time of need may in fact be the dishonest one after all. During Act 2 Scene 3, a lot is learnt about the characters of both Iago and Cassio; however these traits are discovered differently by the reader and by the characters, adding dramatic irony to the story. One of the ways in which the two characters are portrayed as different roots to how the other characters portray them, compared to how the reader may portray them.
Dahl represents Mary the protagonist as being the innocent in the story through the maltreatment that is shown by Patrick towards her. Patrick is very dismissive towards his wife. Mary “waited on him for an answer, a smile, a little nod, but he made no sign” which shows that he treats her with minimal respect. While Mary is utterly devoted to Patrick, he clearly lacks affection, which is conveyed, through his abrupt replies. Therefore, Mary is an innocent sufferer as she endures her husband’s mistreatment.
She knows that she is “dreadfully depressed” but because John feels there is no reason for her to be unhappy then she can’t be unhappy. “He said I was his darling and his comfort and all he had, and that I must take care of myself for his sake, and keep well. He says no one but myself can help me out of it, that I must use my will and self-control and not let any silly fancies run away with me” (Gilman, 1899). He does everything he can do to change her mind into thinking that it is nothing and wants nothing to influence her nervous ways, not wallpaper nor writing in a journal. The woman’s feelings of hopelessness can be felt in this quote….. “If a physician of high standing, and one's own husband, assures friends and relatives that there is really nothing the matter with one but temporary nervous depression--a slight hysterical tendency-- what is one to do?” (Gilman,
Since everything is done according to the elders there is no way you can make a mistake in the community, so no discoveries are being made either. In Harrison Bergeron, the society is a distorted, dysfunctional dystopia. The people suffer greatly without knowing it because they cannot think for themselves. Society has gone wrong because advancements cannot be made, hope of a new ruler coming to set thing straight is gone, and the government lowers the standards to make everybody equal. Society becoming dystopia is an important subject because it is the one thing that people want to prevent from
