Alex Aja Mrs. Dillon AP literature 10/6/12 AP prompt 1979 In many great literary works main characters are given certain flaws that make them evil or immoral, however the circumstance or the motives surrounding the character are affable making the audience become attached and more sympathetic towards said character. A great example of this is the dramatic play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof the audience is exposed to many characters that have immoral flaws however one in particular gets the audiences sympathy. That character is Brick, Brick is a retired Football player turned alcoholic partly due because he feels responsible for the suicide of his best friend Skipper. Brick goes to his father’s birthday drunk and continues drinking, and accidently tells his father that he has cancer. This by itself sounds like condemning evidence that Brick is a horrible immoral person, but we the audience feels more of sympathy toward him than anger because of the unfortunate circumstances that occurred in his life.
To some extent, I agree with this statement as John had many faults such as, he was a bad fighter and the people of medieval England liked their kings to be great warriors. He lost all of the land in France and some sources written by barons say that it was because he was idle and was not bothering to fight. He was also over taxing the barons which obviously was not sensible as the barons in medieval times had a lot of power. If they inherited land, king John would get a large share of it, or if they didn’t want to fight in a battle, they would have to pay a large amount of money to the king. However I also disagree with this statement for as many reasons as I agree with it, one being that Johns brother was Richard the Lion Heart.
Johnny, knowing how prized and amazing he was at his job, was bossy and mean towards most in the family, even Mr. Lapham. Because of how prideful he was, Johnny would defend himself to anybody that insulted him, which, in my opinion, caused him to not care when he made fun of someone. In the book, Dove, another apprentice, tricked Johnny and caused him to burn his hand with silver. The hand became
Dove intentionally caused an accident in the shop to serve Johnny right for the insufferable way Johnny had been bossing everybody. Johnny held hard feelings for Dove, refusing to forgive him. Not only was Johnny Tremain full of pride, but he also was unforgiving. So how did Johnny turn from prideful and unforgiving to the complete opposite: humble and forgiving? After the accident, because he was no longer able to work as a silversmith, he began searching for a new practice, and new life.
He makes the conflict happen by taking $6,500 from the family, which in turn causes everyone to distrust and despise Walter even more than they had in the past. Mr. Lindner is another character who makes things happen. By trying to buy the house the Younger family was about to move into, he made the entire family incensed. This made the whole family to unite on one cause, which does not happen very often in the play. Beneatha is a character who wonders what happened.
In fact dada can be considered the complete opposite of beauty and the fact that the artists considered their work art made people furious, especially with Marcel Duchamp's “Fountain”, causing several people to the act of attacking the art pieces. The main point of dada is to the shock the audience. George Heard Hamilton stated that Dada is “the most violent, disruptive, and controversial movement in twentieth-century art”. There was a slogan that went around that said “art is dead”. The rebellious members of Dada never came up with a clear program, and their goals were often ambiguous and sometimes contradictory.
In addition to angering his father, Asher paints images that also his mother and the Jewish community are unhappy with. These pictures started with nudes and later lead to drawing his mother on a crucifix. When his parents see this in the exhibit, they immediately leave
Character Analysis of Homer Barron of “ A Rose for Emily” Homer Barron is a major antagonist of the story, however, Emily Grierson is considered to be the story’s main focus. After completely reading the story, William Faulkner made it perfectly clear that Homer is not a compassionate person. Even though, Homer “pretty soon knew everybody in town”, the townspeople didn’t consider him to be the type of man, Emily would marry. It is unknown whether or not, Homer is a homosexual. This becomes a huge factor being analyzed because of the confusing line in the story: “Then we said, “She will persuade him yet, “because Homer himself had remarked- he liked men, and it was known that he drank with the younger men in the Elks’ Club- that he was not a marrying man.” (Faulkner 4) This portion of the story is hard to unravel.
These men wanted to have their own costumes that would represent the Klan. Because they were poor they decide to use white linens that would not only drape over themselves, but their horses as well and wear pillow cases over their heads. In the beginning the intention was to have a little fun at night by playing pranks people as means to get people to laugh. Unfortunately no one found anything they did to be humorous at all; the people were frightened by the men more than anything. In finding out that this scared people more than anything the Klan decided to grow from there and turn the tables on the soon-to-be free slaves that were starting to take over the
If he was a good person from the start he wouldn’t have become a fireman in the first place, when his curiosity built on books he was becoming greedy for the knowledge, and finally, he killed his chief because of emotions. People who have read this book might have sympathized Guy Montag for he was changing to be a better person but overall he isn’t really the best hero. In Fahrenheit 451, the beginning of the book describes Montag doing his job as a fireman, a man who burns books. Books were considered illegal and so these men would have to search for them and burn them. These men were considered the “bad guys” right off the bat and Montag was a part of them.
