When on land, Huck's father, Pap kidnaps Huck in order to keep Huck from being “better [than] him [and to keep Huck from] fooling around [in] school” (19) because he never went to school, illustrating a very poor example of parenting and a closed-minded way of thinking. As a parent, he should want what's best for Huck, wanting him to be civilized and be a decent human being. Like the land, which is physically slow-changing, Pap doesn't want Huck to surpass him. When Huck is imprisoned within the shed, Pap beats him and suppresses him, keeping him unchanged and unable to improve physically or mentally. Huck escapes suppression by fleeing to the river, where he finds his ticket to freedom; “a canoe... riding high like a duck” (30).
Two characters that show bewilderment throughout the course of the novel is Scout, and Bob Ewell. One character in the novel that shows ignorance throughout the course of the novel is Bob Ewell. "This morning Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he'd get him if it took the rest of his life. "(271) Bob Ewell was desperate for revenge and the help that Atticus was trying to prove Tom's innocence of something that Bob Ewell caused. This quote is important because it showed that Bob had no respect for Atticus, and his embarrassment in court was his main priority in getting him back.
BLOG 4 After court today Bob Ewell came and spit right in my face. All I could do was walk away, because I knew If I would have whooped up on him he would’ve went home and took it out on Mayella. “I wish Bob Ewell didn’t chew tobacco”(P217). “If spitting on me and threatening me saves Mayella one extra beating I’m willing to take it”(P218). I wasn’t all so happy about not being able to retaliate, but I knew bob would take his anger out Mayella if I did.

It sounds terrible and crazy to blame Finny for this, but honestly – it became his fault after Gene confessed his guilt and Finny didn’t believe him. The first fall happened because of Gene, but after Gene confessed and Finny refused to believe it, everything past that point became his fault for choosing to keep himself ignorant of the truth. And he died for it. But Finny’s ignorance resulting ultimately in his death isn’t the only instance indicating the cost of ignorance, as the article “Mercury danger in dolphin meat” by Eric Johnston shows: “Dolphin and whale meat is high in mercury…[Endo, a professor at the Health Sciences University of Hokkaido] has discovered Taiji residents who eat the meat sold in local stores have extremely high concentrations in their bodies…‘Between December 2007 and July 2008, myself and a team of scientists and researchers took hair samples from 30 male and 20 female residents of the Taiji area. In three cases, the levels of mercury present were more than 50 parts per million, high enough that it was possible nerve damage, like that seen in victims of Minamata disease, could occur,’ said Endo.” (Johnston,
In the book Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain Huck has to deal with his conscience by either going to hell for helping a slave escape or he helps Jim because he knows it’s the right thing. The only downside to turning Jim in was that everyone would look down upon Huck too. Also everyone would probably later find out that Huck faked his death At first Huck was going to rat Jim out to the people out on the boat but his conscience got to him. and told him that it wasn’t the right thing. The next time Huck was going to create a letter explaining what happened but he ended ripping it up.
You would think because he missed his son’s birth, he would try to make up for it and be a great father. But he was never around to raise his son and do fatherly things with William, like teach him valuable life lessons and such. As an adult, William tried to let his father know that their relationship wasn’t steady because William only knew so much about his father, and the rest were fabrications. All he wanted to know was the truth, and Edward kept telling tall tales. This only caused the deteriorating relationship between father and son to
As Boo had made mistakes in his life as any other person in society has, he was never forgiven. His fate, which was decided by his dad, was to have no contact outside of the Radley house. This choice had expelled Boo from ever truly feeling any relationship of what so ever, and was always cut off if he had ever. This was displayed in chapter 7 when Boo had formed some connection between Scout and Jem such as leaving presents from them in the tree knot hole; later then Boo’s brother Nathan poured cement in the hole. This demonstrated that Boo had no connections to anyone outside his house since he was not allowed to have one which made misery rain on him.
As Macbeth first feels the immense guilt of killing his king, he asks himself: “Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood/ Clean from my hand?” And answering his own question he states: “No, this my hand will rather/ The multitudinous seas incarnadine,/ Making the green one red.”(2,2,57-60). The powerful image of Neptune’s vast oceans and multitudinous seas being unable to cleanse Macbeth’s blood stained hands further implies that Macbeth will never be forgiven for his gruesome deed, and that his guilt will plague him till his final day on earth. As he enjoys the spoils of the “King of Scotland”, Macbeth becomes plagued with inevitable guilt and remorse so severely that he becomes blind of the heinous acts of murder that he permits, claiming “It will have blood; they say, blood will have blood.” (3,4,121). Blood having blood serves as a continuous cycle, therefore Macbeth’s killing will become a habit and his guilt of killing shall not impede him from his goals of slaughtering possible deceitful subjects, including his close friend Banquo, of whom he finds justification for killing “with thy bloody and invisible hand/ Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond/ Which keeps me pale!”(3,2,48-50). The “great bond” that Macbeth refers to represents Banquo’s lease on life, and as he terminates that bond, Macbeth supposes his pale and bloodless face with replenish with the blood of his adversary, symbolically driving all other guilt he once felt out of his soul and gone forever
He lacked in knowledge in wars and responsibility of succeeding Russia as his son and as a loyal subject. In addition, Peter try to convince his son to learn art of war and leading country as an essential to Alexis so that people will look upon. In a letter Peter state that “You have no inclination to learn the art of war, you do not apply yourself to it and consequently you will never learn it”. In rest of the sentence he referred his brother and king of France as an successful leader that their subjects look upon. This statement clearly shows that Alexis was in no interest
