Of course, all books are more descriptive. What I liked about the movie is that they actually showed the dream Pony boy had and they also showed Dally robbing the grocery store; something the book doesn't tell. Both the book and the movie are great, and you should watch it, but the book is better. In conclusion as you can tell there are many differences, but there are also many things that are alike between the book and the movie. I enjoyed both the book and the movie, but personally I think the book was better, because the movie left some of the things out that the book had in it.
Was King John really a bad king? Most people think that King John was a bad King for example he taxed people heavily, he lost wars, also he stole from people. People only believe this because in those times the monks where the only ones who could write but they were all biased to the Pope. John did do good things for people such as he fed paupers increased the size of the navy. In this paragraph I aim to prove that king John was a bad king.
He was very critical of the courts lifestyle which made him appear to look superior to the Royalists and this was furthered by his daughter’s marriage to Charles’s brother to which many Royalists became jealous over his influence and strength in position, increasing their dislike of Clarendon. His method of land settlement also upset some Royalists because it meant that those who had sold their land during the interregnum wouldn’t be refunded. Their resentment at this treatment also was to cause problem with Parliament later. He also played a key role in Charles' marriage to Catherine of Braganza and her failure to bear children was also damaging to Clarendon, as he was accused of marrying Charles to an infertile bride for personal gain as his grandchild would become the next heir. These factors all upset the royalists and meant they had negative opinions of Clarendon which they were able to whisper in Charles’s ear when Clarendon wasn’t around and turn Charles’s more against Clarendon so it became easier to dismiss him and use him as a scapegoat later on.
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).
This side is shown when he complains to his mom about how the “food is bad” and how he cares if there’s any “bedbugs” (245). These traits of caring too much about his own health and hygienes shows that he's more concerned abut that rather than the real war in front of his own eyes. When he notices this, he changes his attitude and tries to act more manly by signing his letter with “Soldier Heinrich” instead of a more sincere closing to his mother. Homosexuals are mistreated in the world, even still today because of how some countries or even states in America banning gay marriage. Griffin connects the Germany’s hate toward homosexuals to a murder
Okonkwo and Macbeth are both heavily influenced by other characters, fuelled by the expectations of their societies, and driven to act based on their tragic flaw. The reason behind all the actions Okonkwo takes can be traced back to one person; his father. Okonkwo grew up hating Unoka’s laziness and he “was ruled by one passion- to hate everything that his father Unoka had loved” (Achebe 13). This led him to rule “his household with a heavy hand” (Achebe 13), and treat his family poorly. He is afraid to show affection, as seen with Ezinma and Ikemefuna.
He also told them not to say the “N” word because it was disrespectful and if they said it around other people it was making its seem alright for there people to call them the “N” word witch is wrong. To be respectful they had to stop fighting and because better players so they could win games. Couch Carter made them wear ties and suit jackets to the games so they looked like a team. Another thing Coach Carter wanted high Expectations for the boys so he made them sign a contract and if they didn’t do what was on the contract they couldn’t play or train in the gym until they for filled the contract. Couch Carter pushed the boys to be there best and to be the best they had to learn to run a whole game so carter made them to running all the time.
Chapter 4, pg. 52. This quote is interesting because he wanted to go to war because he didn’t want to feel shame but in reality the citizens of the U.S made him and the rest of the soldiers feel shameful for going into the war. Tim O’Brien uses satire in this quote to show how this one character felt about this
Such helpfulness was found in her -so much power to do and power to sympathize – that many people refused to interpret the scarlet ‘A’ by its original signification. They said that it meant ‘Able’” (Hawthorne 158). The reason why the “A” changes meanings is because the guilt is displayed on Hester for everyone to see. This allows Hester to ignore the negative connotations of the “A” which eventually changes its meaning. Furthermore, Hester knows that the sin she commits was wrong, but she chooses to feel no guilt for her actions.
Many people would argue that the blame for her misfortune should solely lay on Lord Illingworth, who, it is obvious to the audience, used her for his own pleasure and satisfaction, abusing her love and trust. From this, it is easy to infer that Wilde himself felt very strongly about the idea of women ‘falling from grace’, not that they have fallen, but about the double standard that came with it; that it was unjust that women should be fully blamed and looked down on by society for being ‘fallen’ when no blame lay with the men who brought about their fall, an attitude that was very uncommon to have to have at the time, espeicially for a
