It could also be teaching parents and adults to be careful of what they do in front of children, but the first part is strange because there doesn’t really seem to be any moral or lesson to learn. “Freddy and Katy” would be categorized as both a cautionary and an endless tale. I think this because there was no real ending since Katy just joins the thieves and people see her as the devil. Also, it teaches a lesson similar to Clever Hans that one should have some common sense and think for themselves without someone always telling them what to do. Katy always has good intentions, but she is unable to distinguish between reality and fiction and it seems like she has the mind of a child.
She primps excessively, lies, uses racist language, begrudges America's goodwill contributions to postwar Europe, and foolishly blurts out that she recognizes The Misfit. Not until the story takes a tragic turn does she begin to realize that she is not who she thinks she is. Situational irony occurs when a development in a story is the opposite of what the reader expects. In "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," this type of irony occurs when an evil man, The Misfit, causes Bailey's mother to see herself for what she is, a sinner. Her enlightenment allows her to redeem herself by casting off her selfishness and reaching out to the deranged killer.

Play Critical Analysis In the play, “How I Learned to Drive”, Paula Vogul introduces two characters- an uncle (Uncle Peck) and his niece (Lil Bit) - who has an abnormal relationship with one another. Vogul uses the techniques of the uncle showing his niece how to drive in a literal sense, however it is interpreted as another meaning as well. There are many messages and themes in this play, one of which is family dysfunction. The play focuses on the main character, Lil Bit, as she goes through many difficult and emotional decisions. Lil Bit recalls memories of emotional manipulation and sexual molestation, all of which are tied together with driving lessons all from her Uncle Peck.
Anse’s exaggerated traits of selfishness distance him from the other characters and others tend to dislike him because of his self-centered personality. Anse is even too stubborn to call a doctor for his own wife until it is obvious that she is desperate. Peabody says, “I knew that nobody but a luckless man could ever need a doctor in the face of a cyclone. And I knew that if it had finally occurred to Anse himself that he needed one, it was already too late.” (42) Peabody highlights Anse’s stubbornness in this passage and shows just how unwilling to adapt and help others he is. The other characters are bothered and annoyed by the grievances of Anse, and his neighbors such as Tull view Addies death and Vardaman’s actions as “A judgment on them.
She appeals to the readers’ emotions. When she says that her parents’ accents humiliated her, you can feel her pain and embarrassment of something so trivial. Yu can feel her anger as she tells the reader of the snide remark about the Middle East coming from an adult. She uses reason to convince readers of the discrimination when her mother changes young children’s minds about some stereotypes. I think pathos predominates because one connects with the author on an emotional level and opens their mind to the existing problem.
Dr. Rank also speaks of a polluted father and claims that he is sick because of his father’s deeds. Torvald also tells Nora that she has inherited her father‘s flimsy beliefs, attributing her behavior to her father’s poor influence. Torvald himself is another example of a poor father in the play spending no time with the children and saying that where the children are is only a place for the mother. Rosefeldt finishes with some things that Ibsen himself said about the play. Ibsen stated about the play that women are judged through the laws and eyes of men, by men.
As shown by Lloyd Jones and William Shakespeare in their respective novels, too much ambition for power and not being able follow one’s conscience leads to immoral acts that result in nothing but regret and guilt. Although the characters in both works have a sense of righteousness, they are unable to follow their conscience, which result in immoral acts. Dolores demonstrates this quality when she decides, against her righteous conscience, that she cannot take responsibility for the poor condition the village is in, but she could let the whole village suffer and let Mr. Watts take the blame for something she did. Although she “[lays] awake thinking –knowing what the right thing to do was” (Lloyd 112), she continues to let this valuable secret that could save her village, weigh on her conscience. Similarly, Matilda also makes the same mistake as her mother by keeping her mom’s secret from the village.
