He always feels guilty because of his violent birth, in which his mother died. This reality makes him always feel miserable about his past. On the other hand, he acts like an arrogant "Pashtun" in most of his behaviour with Hassan, and puts himself in a higher rank of ethnic groups, in comparison to "Hazzaras", whom have no voice in society. After all, these issues make huge contrasting decisions for Amir, however the reader should judge him regardless to these ways of thinking, because of Amir's particular situation. How would you describe the relationship between: Baba and Ali: Baba’s father was a judge who had adopted the orpahan Ali (Hassan's father) and raised the boy along with his own son (Baba).
Meursault’s detached personality is first shown when he showed no emotion at his mother’s funeral and how he did not know his mother’s age: “I [Meursault] hadn’t wanted to see mother, hadn’t cried once and I’d left straight after the funeral without paying my respects at her grave.” (86). Meursault does not meet society’s expectation because he was different from the rest of society. He is expected to cry and show his respects but he does the exact opposite. A normal man would be devastated by the loss of his mother and suffer from sadness and despair; however, Meursault does not even care much about the date she passed away. “Mother died today or yesterday maybe, I don’t know.” (3) Another point is that shortly after the funeral, Meursault is reacquainted with a typist who used to work at the office with him.
‘we grabbed a drink – soon everything would taste different.’ ‘we grabbed a drink’ shows how desperate they are because they didn’t just get a drink they ‘grabbed’ a drink. ‘Soon everything would taste different.’ This shows how unpatriotic the family is because they think that everything would be better in a different country including the taste of things. ‘It is you last check-in point in this country’ this shows that the family are escaping the conflict because they can’t deal with the conflict. ‘This country’ could show that people are that disgraced with their countries conflict and attitude towards war they don’t even have a name that could describe it. Regret is a main feeling in ‘Bayonet Charge’.
As much as Luke claims he cares about the river’s state of being, it seems that he’s more worried about the actual principle of it and the fear of future disturbances of the Tamassee. Ruth’s parents, Ellen and Herb Kowalsky, obviously did not care at all about the laws they would violate, they were miserable over the loss of their daughter and were willing to fight endlessly to get her body out and give her a proper burial. The local farmers like Maggie’s dad, cousins, and friends, were not clear on the side they were on. They felt bad for the Kowalsky’s and were sick of being told
"Where is he? He is hanging here on the gallows" It’s this horrendous moment in which his perceptions of his God change, someone whom was once grater than man kind and all things was now simply no better than man for if he were he wouldn’t be allowing these terrifyingly sad things to happen. Wisell unknowingly signifies the diminishing of his faith through pipel. Pipel’s painful and slow death is much the same as his perception of God in which die with him. After this Ellie doesn’t show any gratitude or respect to his god, this is clearly evident in Yom Kippur.
They feel guilty for the deaths of men in their platoon, for the deaths of Vietnamese, and for their own inadequacies. This leads each individual’s guilt to develop in a different manner and force the individual to cope with the guilt in the best way they see fit. After the war, the psychological burdens the men carry during the war continue to define them. Years after the end of the war, Jimmy Cross goes to visit Tim O’Brien at his home and together they look at old photographs and reminisce. “We paused over a snapshot of Ted Lavender, and after a while Jimmy rubbed his eyes and said he’d never forgiven himself for Lavender’s death.
In addition, Amir feels an enormous amount of responsibility for his mother's death – as if he not only caused it but, more sinisterly, was responsible for it. Worse (can it get much worse? ), Amir begins to believe his father also blames him for his mother's death. This is only one aspect of the incredibly fraught relationship between Amir and his father. Amir is also extremely jealous of his half-brother Hassan.
In the second stanza, last line, “share in its shame” represents the foolishness the speaker feels for loving that woman. In the third stanza, the speaker does not like hearing the lover’s name after their separation. He compares hearing her name to the sound of a “knell” which means a bell usually used in funerals or deaths. By this word choice, the speaker tells the reader just how deep his sorrow is, comparing hearing her name to hearing death bells each and every time. It causes him to question why he ever loved his ex-lover.
This information deeply shocks her. At first she is very annoyed by the superficiality with which other people speak about that death at her party. She is sensible and understands the importance of his gesture, also because Clarissa herself has may times thought about suicide. Her reaction is also physical; indeed she immediately feels burning and enters in a small and dark room to be alone. She imagines his death and understands why he committed suicide.
The influence Hamlet’s past has on his actions is apparent in everything he does. His father’s death has left him with ill feelings towards his mother and uncle. His mother’s remarriage to his uncle makes Hamlet skeptical about women and their roles in the life of men. Ophelia’s betrayal only furthers Hamlet’s conviction that women destroy the very essence of men. Hamlet’s feminine issues highly motivate the majority of his actions.
