He loses himself in his emotions, but he struggles to control himself while “evolving the right way” (125) in order to survive. Gene feels guilty for losing himself, as a child would, when throwing a temper-tantrum. He does not mean to hurt people, especially the ones he cares for, he just does not know any better. Gene’s instincts kick in when he feels threatened, and he always regrets when they do. After Gene kicked Leper’s chair he says to Mrs. Lepellier, “I’m terribly-it was a mistake…he said something crazy.
Everyone at some point in time gets teased, teases, or sees someone get teased, and possibly thinks that it is no big deal, it’s just banter, but when banter and teasing crosses that fine line between bullying, there’s a big problem. The victims are usually very quiet and have poor social skills, therefore making it hard for someone to notice that they are being bullied. Kids who are bullied, are often physically smaller than the bully, and therefore have very low self-esteem. It’s easy prey for the bullies, since they know they won’t put up much of a fight and they know they are scared of retaliation. Before taking a look at the effects of
Look like all they want to do is knock you down.” Enoch tells Haze about his abusive father and this mean lady he lived with before he came there. It really makes me wonder if Enoch ever had anybody to talk to and that is why he is so strong on Haze; because Haze is listening. Enoch tells Haze that he has “wise blood”. “When he realized that today was the day he decided not to get up. He didn’t want to justify his daddy’s blood, he didn’t want to be always having to do something that something else wanted him to do, that he didn’t know what it was and that was always dangerous”(135).
His views of phonies, sex/relationship, and talks about Jane, makes us hard to believe what he says is true or not. Holden stated constantly that he hates phonies. He view basically everyone in his life as phonies except for children. He thinks that they are innocent and in order for them not to be corrupt, they shouldn't grow up to be adults. "That's all I'd do all day.
This is obvious throughout the story because of his lack of connection with people, the stories he tells, and all the negative things he has to say about people. His negative personality definitely comes from his traumatizing experiences as a child, whatever they may be. Holden is an extremely mysterious person and its very clear because no one knows what is the truth and what is a lie when it comes out of his mouth. In the end, feeling bad for Holden is all thats left. It’s sad that he has lived his life so miserably but things might have been different if he acted more like the real Holden, was more truthful, and wasn’t so deceitful to everyone around
I reacted from his childish insults and pushed him away from me sending him to the other wall of the room and that went on a fight. I didn’t think about the consequences it might result to before I did that such as me getting a suspension in school, ruining my reputation in school and the worst is my parent’s disappointment to me got worse, In short, it just made the problem bigger. Sometimes, people make bad decisions of because of their negative emotions towards themselves and to the people around them. We don’t think carefully about the things that it might end up to if we made that one bad decision. The story of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet has two characters that had this kind of attitude.
I felt Kane’s argument was a bit ineffective since he kept focusing more on Jim Getty (his competition) thus making him look like a bad person. It seemed as if Boss Jim Getty had committed some crime, however Kane did not explain what he had done wrong. I do feel that he made those who were classified in the lower-class happy that someone wanted to do something to help them. However, Kane forgot to mention what his promise to help this class of people would entitle. I believe that without mentioning what you would like to do in order to help people out you leave the audience doubting if your promise will live up to it.
Crooks tend to be a push-over and don’t want to cause trouble in the group. On the other hand Curly’s wife is always trying every which way, and to make matters worse it just only causes trouble for everyone else to deal with. Crooks, as he tends to get away from a bad situation, “Maybe you guys better go. I ain't sure I want you in here no more. A colored man got to have some rights even if he don't like 'em" (Steinbeck 90).
I wanted to show that even though they tried to help they feel like they failed trying to help. The deaths of the innocent will continue, because no one is truly listening to what people are saying, and the sad part is that most people know what happens, however fear is what holds people back from justice. Fear is what keeps people from helping their peers, from helping themselves. The government cover up doesn’t help the people but instead ends up harming people, when they ask for the help. I wanted to portray the fact that people end up getting hurt if they try to
Yes later he started to calm down, but he was still angry because someone told him his son was stealing stuff, it’s a first reaction a parent will feel if someone told them something like that. Some literacy devices used in this poem are simile, imagery and conflict. They used a simile because they used the words “like and as “In the poem. Imagery because there are things in the poem that made me picture the poem in my head and conflict because this poem had conflict in it. Discipline: If your child lies to you of course you have to discipline them, like grounding them but hitting is not acceptable.
