In the court case she appears to be uncertain of her testimony, constantly stuttering and repeating herself. She tries to cover her guilt by accusing Atticus of 'making fun of me (her)'(p200). Scout curiously studies Mayella; she does not think much about her. Scout figures out that Mayella's life is much different from her own. She carefully studies Mayella, and questions Jem if Mayella had any sense.
Dear Sammy, I feel remorseful for your appalling actions that you made in A & P, by John Updike. I am writing you for you to inform me on your reasons of doing some of the things that you did. It seems that there was very little reason for you to leave your job in order to protest the “embarrassment” you assumed the girls felt when being confronted by the manager. This was not a wise decision. I understand why you felt like the girls were being embarrassed by your manager, Lengel, when he confronted them about not being properly dressed, but it was not your responsibility to handle the situation the way you did.
Immaturity and a Lack of Communication: Ripping the Family Apart in Why I Live at the P.O. In Why I Live at the P.O. Eudora Welty demonstrates that immaturity and a lack of communication, tend to have a debilitating effect on family relationships. What we see throughout the course of this short story is that repeated failures in communication between member’s of Sister’s family ultimately lead to the sundering of one of the most deeply held and sacred concepts known to humans—blood relations. This notion of petty difficulties and problems, such as immaturity, is examined and emphasised in many ways.
She has to go everywhere we go.” When John Wesley was asked by the grandmother what he would do if confronted by the Misfit his reply was, “I’d smack his face.” But in the end we find this to be very untrue. The Misfit’s character is again the result of the breakdown in humanity, family values and all of the values that have been lost in today’s culture. The Misfit may have some social graces because he responds respectfully and apologizes to the grandmother for Bailey’s harsh comment, but there is some uneasiness about the morals his own father had as a role model. There is a hint that the Misfit’s father had a darker side and had some run-ins with the authorities. The Misfit explained to the grandmother, “Daddy was a card himself.
Ted may also have been catapulted into his killing streak by the revelation that his mother had deceived him his whole life (by claiming that she was his sister), creating resentment towards women. Due to his troubled upbringing, it is impossible to know for certain whether Ted Bundy was born a psychopath or became one as a result of the poor care and guidance he received as a child and later as an adolescent, during a period in his life where his fatal character flaws began to blossom. However, regardless of the origin of his immorality, it is undeniable that Ted Bundy was truly the embodiment of
His children particularly Mayella, have been affected by this lack of empathy, and have developed it as well. After Bob had just saved Scout and Jem's lives, Atticus and Mr. Heck Tate were talking about Mr. Ewell. "He has guts enough to pester a poor coloured woman, he had guts enough to pester Judge Taylor when he thought the house was empty, so do you think he'd met your face in daylight?" (Page 269) - Mr. Heck Tate (on why Bob Ewell went after Scout and Jem). This quote shows how Bob Ewell has no empathy skills whatsoever.
Unlike the girls in Salem, Abigail is not submissive which is why her uncle is suspicious and even more because she’s rebellious. That alone was considered filthy and impure. In Act one, Abigail states these words, alluding about her past affair with Proctor. “I look for John Proctor that took me from my sleep and put knowledge in my heart! I never knew what pretense Salem was, I never knew the lying lessons I was taught by all these Christian women and their covenanted men!
All these things happen to Jem and Scout because Atticus is a part of this trial-which makes Jem and Scout perfect targets for the people of Maycomb. The writer wouldn’t have added all of these minor conflicts throughout the book without a particular reason, but she did: because they all are because of Tom Robinson. This is a perfect example of Man vs Society because of Tom Robinson the people have acted upon his Trial and gone against anything related with him. In the book Scout asks Atticus "You aren't really a nigger-lover, then, are you?" and Atticus says "I certainly am.
He purposely uses powerful adjectives in his phrases, such as “burnt her inside out” and “she was in great agony”; the word “agony” is emotive because it suggests an extremely unbearable pain. Sheila responds “miserably” which illustrates that she has been saddened by the news the Inspector had announced. However, this has an impact on Sheila but Mr and Mrs Birling, who are set in their ignorant time frame of mind, fail to see this. Their callous attitude prevents them from accepting any blame or responsibility for their own actions, and they fail to recognise that all actions have consequences. Their social class is also revealed when they are talking about Eva Smith.
This line reflected Mrs. Pontellier’s mood at the time. She is upset because her husband insinuates that she is bad or unfit mother. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children” (26-27). Him saying that really upset her and leads us into the next literary device that shows just how unhealthy the relationship is. Another literary device that Chopin uses in order to reveal Mr. and Mrs. Pontellier’s relationship is imagery.
