In Kazan’s film ‘On the waterfront’ Kazan portrays Terry Malloy, who played by Marlon Brando, as a flawed and troubled man who is heavily influenced by those close to him, such as his older brother Charlie, lover Edie and bold priest Father Barry. Kazan portrays Terry in this way because Kazan wants to show that with the help of god, through Father Barry and Edie, every man no matter how many sins he has committed can make up for them and be redeemed. At the beginning of the film Terry is so heavily influenced by Johnny and the mob he is blind to the fact that what he is doing is morally wrong, Kazan represents Terry’s blindness when Terry sends Joey to the roof top and Terry is oblivious to the real reason as to why Johnny wanted Joey up on the roof top. Joey’s death shakes
Once he betrays Friendly, Terry is without the work. Still, Terry goes on to confronts Friendly by the docks and when all the dock workers are witness to the brutal beating of Terry by Friendly, they refuse to work unless Terry is also allowed to work. This is when the fear the workers had of the dock bosses shift. Terry had neither wanted nor intended to be a hero, but as he evolved to a “man” he had become not only a hero, but also a symbol of the workers' intolerance of manipulation by the dock bosses. In The Passion of Joan of Arc, Joan (Renee Maria Falconetti) is brought to trial.
The quote explains that life brings evil to the world of many others who don’t appreciate their life. The symbolism that the author developed in the novel was onions. The onion is a metaphor for racism, lack of opportunity, and the violent street cultures, which combine to keep young men like Eddie in a world of despair. Racism that many people face because the ignorant people who feel they can take over to those who don’t have the power of money.” Lack of opportunity of education that Eddie is going through for his brown skin keeps him from getting a steady of meaningful job outside the ghetto”. That quote meant that those three causes are what stop Eddie from going to college.
Racial prejudice was running rampant throughout the country, and there was an especially deep distrust of black men and their rumored desire for white women. All African Americans were forced into segregated parts of cities, where they had to work for low wages and pay high rent. Bigger’s single mother struggled to raise her three children in a tiny, rat-infested apartment. Due to his deplorable lifestyle, one can hardly blame Bigger for lashing out at the people
After all bullies usually only pick on people they know they can make feel bad to make themselves feel good. Ishmael didn’t feel good about himself, he hated his name he hated hearing the story of how he was born. Ishmael squirmed every time he heard his mother and father tell the story of how he was born and where he got his name from. At school Ishmael spent most of his time, as he says “making himself as small a target as possible” to avoid the bully Barry Bagsley and all the names he called him. Names like Le Spewer, Fishtail Le Sewer and Manure.
He covers the local events that no one else wants while he watches his co-worker continue to get promoted. Though TV audiences love him and look forward to the zany humor he puts into every story, Bruce lives his life in constant frustration. He not only hates his job and rival co-worker, he hates the traffic, his car and the silly little projects his girlfriend wants him to do, like scrapbooks. Bruce curses and fumes that he just has no luck and no good breaks in life. He tells Grace that God is ignoring him, that God is like a mean kid holding a magnifying glass over an ant, burning off his tentacles and laughing.
His society believes that colored people have no human rights, and are thought to be pieces of property traded or used as slaves for labor. This idea has influenced Huck from a young age to believe that colored people are not considered equal to white individuals, often causing him to have strong disagreements with Jim along their journey. “I see it warn’t no use wasting words — you can’t learn a nigger to argue. So I quit.” Huck makes it seem as if robbers murder him during a break in, so he can run away from his hometown to escape his drunken father and the life he feels unsuited for. Jim runs away due to overhearing his owner, who is also Huck’s guardian, talk about selling Jim.
After the death of Allie, he dealt with the event by breaking all the windows in the garage “just for the hell of it”. The onset of depression may help explain the display of over sensitivity that he shows at times. He views himself as the “catcher in the rye”, saving children and their innocence from entering the adult world that is full of “phonies”. He doesn’t want “to have any goddamn stupid useless conversations with anyone”, which not only supports that he is a “phony” himself, as he strikes up conversations with various people he meets, but also alienates himself from society. Holden’s loneliness and alienation causes him much pain as he seeks for human contact and love.
The king did not understand why the slave had become so quiet after being thrown in the water. The philosopher replied: “Before he had tasted the calamity of being drowned, he knew not the safety of the boat; thus also a man does not appreciate the value of immunity from a misfortune until it has befallen him.” In “The Yoga of Knowledge” one of the main themes is the concept of nonattached work. Nonattached work also ties into teens taking everything for granted by the performing of ones duty without concern of the results. Teens often do stupid actions and don’t care about what the outcome is or even think about what’s going to happen after what they have done. However, in “The Yoga of Knowledge” Arjuna, a king, is faced with a dilemma: He knows it’s wrong to kill his cousins and uncles who are on the opposing side, but he knows that it is his duty to his duty to fight for his country as king.
