Tsukamoto so vividly described, we see the struggles within the camp start to affect the Kawamura family; specifically this is shown through the decisions of the two older brothers. One of the brothers chose to join the U.S. Army. He felt very strongly and aggressively towards everything that had just transpired. He was an American citizen, despite his external appearance, and being brought and forced into this camp gave him a rush of patriotism and a controlling urge to show his family and the Americans that he was willing to fight. This brother was very affected by the camp and his mind reached a new level.
Look like all they want to do is knock you down.” Enoch tells Haze about his abusive father and this mean lady he lived with before he came there. It really makes me wonder if Enoch ever had anybody to talk to and that is why he is so strong on Haze; because Haze is listening. Enoch tells Haze that he has “wise blood”. “When he realized that today was the day he decided not to get up. He didn’t want to justify his daddy’s blood, he didn’t want to be always having to do something that something else wanted him to do, that he didn’t know what it was and that was always dangerous”(135).
Proctors action s reveal his inner strength. For example, when John tears his testimony he is giving his life away. Proctor action’s not common because he is a brave man who cares about his family. In Salem no body else would have dared defy authority because they are afraid to die by the injustices of the town. John Proctor choose to go against the judge s orders for the reputation of his family can be ruin because of his action.
In many scenes of the story, several characters are searching for heroes. “What he wanted was a model. Someone who could teach him by example, how to kill,” (24). Robert is resilient and strong, but he is not emotionally prepared for war. His enrolment in the war is due to his guilt over Rowena’s death and his need for independence.
General Douglas MacArthur was one of America’s most accomplished and popular generals. He was a very important, powerful person that is still today one of America’s greatest leaders in history. MacArthur came from a wealthy background, born into a military family that was very high up and was very well connected which meant there were high expectations of him from an early age. There were many significant factors in MacArthur’s life that helped him become such a successful general. His involvement at West Point, the Korean War and his service during WW2 were major events that made MacArthur so popular and powerful.
The first rhetorical device O’Brien employs is imagery. He vividly explains how he believes his courage could be built up in a “reservoir” of courage. Although, when he receives his draft, instead of feeling courageous he feels “the blood go thick” behind his eyes because he cannot believe he is being drafted for war. O’Brien describes the “silent howl” in his head, which allows one to imagine the dread of being drafted to war. O’Brien believes that he is “too good, too smart, too compassionate, too everything” and should not be drafted to the war, especially the “wrong war.” The rage in his stomach “burned down to a smoldering self-pity.” O’Brien’s imagery allows the reader to enter the mind of someone who has just received a draft notice and imagine the thoughts that would be going through their head.
For instance in Peter’s letter, in short paragraph, he questioned Alexis about who will continue what he has begun and letting his son know about his potentials but rather he is hiding his talent beneath the earth. (peter’s letter; paragraph 10). This paragraph clearly shows that Peter desire was to press his son to lead the people of Tsar and its tradition. The second reason I believe that he wrote such an angry letter to his son was, because Alexis has no interest in war and politics. He lacked in knowledge in wars and responsibility of succeeding Russia as his son and as a loyal subject.
For example “ I said “I didn’t know I was going to get in into trouble, I liked wellington and I went ot say hello to him, but I didn’t know someone had killed him” father said “just try and keep your nose out of other people’s business” I thought for a little and I said” I am going to find out who killed Wellington”” The simple fact that Christopher does not listen to his father is challenging to Ed because Christopher’s fails to understand the upset and anguish he could case the people he might ask as well this is challenge because of Ed’s frustration he fails to explain to Christopher correctly why he should not investigate . Although this is not an essay critiquing Ed`s parenting, much of Christopher’s challenges of growing up attribute to this thus contributing to Christopher’s character. Ed does not always make the greatest choices when it comes to parenting case and point would be when Ed finds out Christopher has learned of the affair and has taken Christopher’s book from him. Ed hid the book in his closet causing Christopher to go looking for it which unleashes Pandora’s Box, the after math of finding his mother’s letters showed Christopher in a new light dealing with emotions he has never had before and not know what to do with them ``I did it for your own good, Christopher. Honestly I did.
Older generations believed that their sons and grandsons should do the same as they did and go to war to protect their country. The values in the play explore society’s thoughts on Anzac Day, some characters (Alf) think it was heroic and deserves being honoured by having a celebration. Other characters (Hughie and Wacka) believe that the day is not honoured at all and that it is just an excuse for men to get drunk. Alf, Hughie’s father is a short-tempered, stubborn and uneducated man. Hughie is just as stubborn as his father and is very opinionated.
Franzen also goes on to later say “I don’t like to remember how impatient I was for my father’s breathing to stop, how ready to be free of him I was.” (pg 98) I was surprised to find that he would say something like that about the man that was part of giving him life. I started to think more about a deeper reason for him to have said that and I started to think it was because he really loved his father. Franzen didn’t want to see his father suffer through this horrible disease anymore, so he wanted it to just be over for his father’s own sake. I personally would never want to see a loved one suffer the way Franzen had to watch his father. It would be a hard thing that I don’t know if I ever could go
