Uncle Andy made Arnold feel abandoned and hurt when he stated “Not a tear in his eye”, this statement proves to show that his uncle did not care for him at the time and did not help comfort him. The community within this story also intertwines with this theme. It is shown when a member of the area, Sullivan, expresses his feeling through the following “He don’t give a hoot, is that how it goes?” Each word that comes from his mouth pierces Arnold’s heart and has him left in the dust. Finally the abandonment of his mother was what hurt him the most. People argue that the perspective that your family has on you, is what matters to a person the most.
Part b) in the rest of the novel, how does Steinbeck portray the lives of migrant workers. In the rest of the novel, Steinbeck explains the lives of migrant workers. At the beginning of the book, we know that migrant workers are quite lonely, sad, have little possessions and are very independent and not very friendly. When the boss says to George “You takin’ hi pay away from him?” to suggest that the only reason he is traveling whit another man, is to have double pay. Ranchman didn’t travel together back in 30’s so there must be a reason for it.
Like Candy's dog, Lennie depends on George to take care of him and show him what to do. Candy, like George, is different from the other ranch hands because he has his dog as a constant companion, someone devoted and loyal to him. That at the time the novel is set, most men were alone as they didn’t have the company of another and so they were lonely and drawn into themselves. Candy takes such a shine to George
The gift that the father passed on to his son, the narrator, was meant to be a bond shared between only father and son. This is evident because the father only introduced his gift to his son on a personal level and between the two of them. Also, the specialists were not able to find the water which made it clear that this gift was exclusive only to the father. The fact that the father’s gift was going to be exposed in a film to people outside of the village caused negative impact on this particular family’s tradition. Another shift in this story comes from the generation gap between the father and son.
Though the pet was once a great sheepherder, it was put out to pasture once it stopped being productive. Candy realizes that his fate is to be put on the roadside as soon as he’s no longer useful; on the ranch, he won’t be treated any differently than his dog. Worse than the dog parallel, though, is that Candy (unlike his dog) is emotionally broken by this whole affair. He can’t bring himself to shoot his pet himself, and we suspect this is going to be the same fear and reticence that keep him from making anything more of his life. Candy can’t stand up for his pet because Candy can’t stand up for himself.
Scout originally did not have the skill to empathize, but thanks to Atticus, earns it. Had Scout not honed in on this skill, the end of the book, and the message would have been affected. Bob Ewell is a very unempathetic man and did not teach his children the skill. Bob Ewell is so unempathetic, that in fact in the novel, he was referred to as a low down skunk. His children particularly Mayella, have been affected by this lack of empathy, and have developed it as well.
Also mention that she lied to herself and made herself believe that the man she met could really have put her in the pictures and that her mother had hidden the letters from Hollywood. Paragraph 4- Candy Talk about his relationship with the old dog that was shot, being on of his only friends. Contain references to the fact that, because he only has one hand, he cannot work with the other men and spend his days in the ranch compound with no company. Refer to his great delight at being allowed to share George and Lennie's dream, which made him believe that he could escape from the constant cycle of loneliness. Mention how he tries to be friends with the new men automatically because he believes he could become their friend.
In the novel apart from George, no one else really cares for Lennie. He shows us how the characters feel and act towards Lennie as a character. Lennie, along with Curley’s wife, candy and crooks are considered to be the weaker characters in the novel and when they meet in chapter four in the stable house all the other weak characters reject lennie for his child like nature and his simplemindedness. Lennie tries to do his role in helping him and George fulfill their American dream but no matter how hard he tries, he only causes disasters. It also relates to that time in America, when everyone wants to have their “American Dream” but it’s actually really
ENG 102 24 April 2013 De Willy Loman's misconception of the American dream becomes an obsession that eventually ruins his life and effects his families in "Death of a Saleman". Willy Loman believed and taught his children, like much of society today, that looks and likeability will take one to the 'top' and hardwork and perservance seem to be a little less important. This way of thinking gives Mr. Loman nothing near success and money as he so badly desired along with two unsuccessful sons. It seemed like a 'dog eat dog' world in "Death of a Saleman" much like it is in reality world today. And while everyone lives to chase their dreams, only few actually make it there.
Though Heathcliff does demonstrate behavior that would indicate him as a fiend from hell, Bronte does portray him as an outsider. An orphan that was luckily “saved” by Mr. Earnshaw, HeaHHHhhhHhoishgslakgnsalkgnsadHeathcliff was not meant for Wuthering Heights, and for the majority of his childhood, he was not particularly welcome. He was repeatedly put down, most evident when Catherine acknowledges the fact that by marrying Heathcliff, she would have nothing. This forces him to accept the fact that his social status, or lack of one, forbids him from being with her. His actions when he returns from his absence are those of an impassioned man who is forced to watch his love be with another.
