Priestley presents ideas about responsibility in an 'An Inspector Calls' by portraying the inspector as a conscience ,using him to represent a good example of responsibility in society. He uses the sound of the doorbell to interrupt Birling's rant on his views on society. Priestley uses the shocking announcement of Eva Smith's death to highlight the consequences of a lack of responsibility. The clarity of Eric and Sheila's realisation of the consequences of their actions sends a strong message to the audience about responsibility. The character of the inspector is written by Priestley as a representation of morality in the play.
Some of the major issues and concerns conveyed by Harper Lee in To Kill a Mockingbird (TKAM) are the concepts of prejudice, courage and innocence and childhood and how these are represented in the novel through various techniques and symbols. In the novel we see the racial morals of characters, like Atticus Finch and Bob Ewell, conflicting to create events that instigate racial uproar in the town of Maycomb. We explore the issues through Scout's interpretation of the events, as well as experiencing her innocence from the situation because of her childhood. Through the trial of Tom Robinson, readers are able to witness the courage of Atticus Finch, defending a Negro in a racially biased society when knowing he may not be successful with his endeavours. The main concern and issue in TKAM is the concept of prejudice.
He also plays a part in affecting the town's morals throughout the novel by being modest, standing up for what he believes in, and seeing things all the way through. Atticus was a positive influence on the town of Maycomb, morally and racially in To Kill a Mockingbird. This research paper looks at how Atticus affected the people of Maycomb, including Tom Robinson, his children, and the townspeople in general. In order to defend Tom Robinson on trial, Atticus had to make many sacrifices that involved the town's opinion and views of him as a person. Though most of the people in Maycomb were racist in some way, many of those people knew Tom Robinson was innocent.
Morality is something important that every society should keep into account. Otherwise, people’s lives could turn into fake. Therefore, The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a good example of how morality is portrayed throughout the story in some characters’ behaviors. First, discrimination and racism are some of the immoral aspects that are represented in this novel. For example, it can be seen when Tom Buchanan says Civilization’s going to pieces.
Jasper Jones is the town’s mixed race ‘bad boy’ and all-purpose scapegoat, who has come to ask for Charlie’s help. Together Charlie and Jasper attempt to unravel the mystery of what has happened to Laura Wishart, the Shire President’s missing daughter. In this coming of age story, Charlie must question his conventional notions of what is right and wrong as he navigates small-town morality, racism and hypocrisy. In Jasper Jones, Craig Silvey has represented particular aspects of human behaviour. Human behaviour refers to the range of behaviours exhibited by humans and which are influenced by culture, attitudes, emotions, values, ethics and authority.
Mark Twain, although a humanitarian, greatly emphasizes the extent to which prejudice and racism was ingrained in Southern culture, almost irreversibly. Twain condemns slavery and those who participated in it through his writing, but he also lets the reader know that, to some degree, the characters in the book that we would now consider cruel or downright evil were somewhat blameless for their actions. These misguided creations of Twain’s imagination are an accurate reflection of the real people that lived in that region in the pre-Civil War days. These characters were born and raised in an environment that impressed bigotry on them, and therefore it was nearly impossible for them to cease thinking in a discriminating manner, especially when everyone else around them encouraged that mentality. This realistic portrayal of Huck’s society suggests that one’s upbringing is the crucial development stage for future behavior and mindset.
Through said conversation Jim entrusts Huck with the truth that he is not a free man, but that he instead has run away from his owner, Miss Watson. This was an awkward position for Huck to consider that his new friend was on the run. After Jim confesses to Huck, Jim says, “But
'Perfume' tells a story in which the protagonist’s precarious position between olfactory prowess and lack of body odour motivates a string of despicable murders. One possible interpretation could be that the protagonist’s ‘ontological crisis’ comes about because of his absent mother, therefore, his lack of morals and resulting actions against women are a direct result of this earlier treatment. The amoral actions we see later in Grenouille’s characterisation could be a direct response to the events depicted in the opening chapter. Suskind chooses the structure of the opening chapter deliberately, to open the story in a way that both foreshadows and emphasizes the murderous actions of the protagonist and possibly hint that such actions are a direct result of the protagonists treatment at the very beginning of his life. Indeed the circumstances of Grenouille’s birth might prompt a feminist interpretation to look at what happens when a child is abandoned and raised without a mother.
Later in their friendship, we start to see that Lord Henry is merely stirring thoughts that Dorian already had inside of himself and was just afraid to let them be known. Lord Henry is also the person that leads Dorian into his New Hedonistic ways. It’s relevant that Dorian becomes aware of the new Hedonism in chapter 2 when Lord Henry says, “No, you don’t feel it now…there is absolutely nothing in the world but youth!” Dorian starts to realize that he is a good-looking man and he should start to take advantage of it. Dorian Gray’s eyes become further open to the New Hedonism when Lord Henry begins to say that the only good thing to do is seek out the pleasures in life and to not live by morality. One should do what ever one thinks feels is good.
