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. Lastly Boo was always discriminated and never appreciated for anything he had done to serve society. As the people of Maycomb always on thought of Boo being a bad person, he was shown evidently that he served society as a secret hero such as when he had saved the children from Bob Ewell; “Mr. Ewell was tryin’ to squeeze me to death . .
Not only is Lennie discriminated, but when George and Lennie enter the farm, discrimination has already occurred. Lennie is often prejudiced from his mental disability. Especially at the ending of the book when Lennie is killed by George. Other victims of discrimination in this novel are: Crooks, a black stable buck; Curley’s Wife, the farm owner’s neglected daughter-in-law; and Candy, an old, disabled housekeeper. Crooks is discriminated from his skin color.
He had a very complex relationship with his three children. He normally made fun of his daughter Meg because she was shaped like a megatron and looked beastly. He treated his son Chris very well because they both share the same level of genius and he didn’t really care about his youngest son Stewie because they both had nothing in common and Peter was just too arrogant. When it came to giving advice to his kids about school, all he said was “you are average” but he was just being mean. Whenever the subject was about ancestors, Peter loved talking about them.
This is tragic because none of the other boys has this. Ralph and Piggy act out of the rules of society while Jack and Roger act out of ruthless nature, but Simon acts out of neither and is just naturally
Hornbeck's statement makes the reader understand that even the largest group or society can feel challenged or threatened by one single person. During the play, this person happened to be Bertram Cates, a young, mannerly school teacher. Although Bertram Cates was not causing destruct and conflict on purpose, he became a threat to everyone around him because he did what he thought was the truth. He explored outside the lines of which he's always been taught, and unlike any other individual in his town, he went with what he believed. This caused a raging uproar because during that time era, science was not yet studied the way it is today.
No one's denying the lack of suffering, starvation, and violence. Today's society has a long way to go, but being unable to feel real emotions is something that, to me, is morally wrong. I would not want to create a world in which this is true for everyone. As we found out when Jonas first saw books, there is no real freedom of information in his community. People in his community are taught things like math and how to speak well, but it is made very clear that they know nothing about the world outside of their
The only reason they voted for Ralph was because he had the conch. This shows how important the conch was to all the kids at first, but as the boys became more and more savage the conch started to be worthless to them, along with civilization and order. The conch was originally a powerful symbol of civilization and leadership, but the boys stopped caring about it, so they stopped caring about the last bit of civilization they still had. There was still a small sense of civilization left in all the children that kept that kept them from becoming total savages. But that was lost when Roger killed Piggy and destroyed the conch.
It is also made clear to the reader why Grendel has no social life due to the fact that he simply wants nothing to do with those around him; however there is only one point of view throughout the poem which makes the reader wonder if there is more to Grendel than a beast. We know nothing of his background of why he acts the way he does, we have no clue as to how others have acted toward him in the past, and for how long these situations lasted. Grendel is just a misunderstood character. Throughout the poem there is valid reason as to why someone would be able to empathize toward Grendel.

We all went out to eat, hung out and it ended up being such a boring day outside of school. The next day none of us got into any trouble it was like no one even noticed. But the consequence that I suffered was that one class had an exam that I couldn’t make up and none of my other classes excepted any of my homework so I had to take all zeros for my work. Many kids feel pressure from their peers and make stupid decisions instead of being a leader and not a follower. In “Salvation” Hughes saw that nothing happened to the other boy and decided to follow him and ended up feeling extremely guilty because he really didn’t see Jesus.
Upon its publication it was burned by farmers and for years after was among the most frequently banned books in America because of its profanity (Stanley 43). The Grapes of Wrath struck such a deep nerve it was deplored on the floors of Congress for its radicalism (Steinbeck). Oklahoma Congressman Lyle Boren went as far as to call it “the black, infernal creation of a twisted, distorted mind” (Stanley 2). Steinbeck's novel also harvested a downbeat response reflected in many book reviews and literary essays. Burton Rascoe of Newsweek called The Grapes of Wrath a “mess of silly propaganda, superficial observation, careless infidelity to the proper use of idiom, tasteless, pornographical, and categorical talk” (Cordyack).
