Therefore, the storyline’s progression supports Karl’s ability to grow and learn as a human being. Even as a man with a disability, he knows the difference between good and evil. In a twisted way, Karl redeemed himself from killing his mother, because there was no justice to killing her; meaning she was innocent. With Doyle, Karl killed a man for being abusive, a terrible role model, and for having an issue with people who are different. Compare to when he was 12, Karl knew what he was doing when he killed Doyle, he did not flee the scene of the crime because we know he called the police on
at the University of California, Berkley. He now works at the University of California, San Diego in the Ecology and The Behavior of Evolution Section as a semi-retired professor/geneticist. Christopher was fascinated by the stories his uncle told him about World War II which I think may have influenced him to write this book. The story that seems to have led his career is the one in which his uncle got sick in India. In 1943 his uncle got injured by a mortar-bomb splinter in his left tibia which caused a horrible leg infection.
In another case, Paul is seen trying to save the life of an enemy that he has stabbed, he fails but his efforts shouldn’t be forgotten. His friends refer to him as a hero, and he neglects this title and all the medals. Paul doesn’t like war and what it represents, to him, war is the real evil. The government forcing people into war, without giving them a choice is evil War can easily turn any person into a hero. Corporal Himmelstoss was an average polite postman before being drafted into World War I, not soon after he became a bully.
Although Marie has a serious cold, she also uses her weak voice to protest being checked by Uncle Hayden alone. From these few words, readers can feel the intense fear and panic from Marie and know that Uncle Hayden is an indecent rapist. Besides, by the end of Chapter 1, I really confuse about the Mr. Hayden`s attitude. After David`s mother tells this father all the things, he waits for his father to explode, but, instead, his father said as quietly as before: “Why are you telling me this?” (36:4). Although I know that Dr. Hayden is David`s father`s brother, I consider that in front of justice and brother`s relationship, I will prefer to choose justice.
Before she thought that Atticus was different from the other fathers in Maycomb because he was too old and couldn’t do anything fun with them. After he killed the mad dog in one shot, Scout was proud of her father and got more influenced in him. Scout is forced to understand that Tom Robinson was being treated differently because he had colored skin. Because of that, Scout realized that people can be prejudice because her father took a case of an African American man who was innocent. It shows that Scout can actually think seriously about things when she says, “Who in this town did anything to help Tom Robinson, just who?”(215).
He's my son! He'd rather see these no-good punks than his own mother? You scum…” Mrs. Cade. The reason for his low self-esteem and him losing his innocence by killing Bob is because he has to deal with lack of parental love. The extent of your loss of innocence also depends on the environment you are raised in.
Naturally Violent “People are Violent because they are born that way.” Modern writers often speak of people native to violence. Although these three stories disproves that mankind is born evil, in Ralph Ellison’s “A Party Down at the Square” says the white narrator does not like the racism but will approve of it because his family and the environment revolved around him is indeed racist. “Invisible Man” also by Ralph Ellison, the Invisible man was always seeing the bright side of everything but as he grew older nobody noticed him so he turned evil, he understood that no one will ever see him the way he wants to be seen. “The Destructors” By Graham Greene, this also disproves the statement of all mankind are born evil because it shows
Justice Racism has been one of the worst problems black people have endured since they came in touch with the white race. Racism is a belief that one's own race is superior and has the power to rule others. In Martin Luther King's writing “Letter From Birmingham Jail”, he answers the criticism given by his fellow clergyman that judged his actions as “unwise and untimely” (King5). King makes the reader understand that black people are tired of being treated as outcasts and as an inferior race thus, reassures the clergyman that black people's inalienable rights are being ignored. However, King proves to the clergyman, in his writing, that black people deserve equal rights by appealing to the reader's emotions, appealing to logic and
Some Key facts to remember Carlson: I limited, insensitive person. He does not handle the later shooting of candy’s dog with any compassion. Carlson offers to shoot candy’s dog as candy is paralyzed at the thought. Candy knows that when he is no longer needed as a swamper (cleaner), he will be ‘shot’ just like a dog. However Candy later regrets letting Carlson shoot his dog for him as he says ….. “I shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog”- The shooting of the dog foreshadows the death of lennie.
Although Boo Radley shows just what a substantial person he has become, he is still misjudged by the society. This is proved when Boo Radley saves Jem’s life by killing Mr.Ewell and Atticus says it wouldn't be right to expose him and Scout vocalised, “ It would be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?”. So when Atticus kept the information of Boo to himself, he really believed that Boo Radley was an innocent man who caused no harm to anyone and therefore shouldn’t be persecuted, as he has been illtreated his whole life. The aim with mockingbirds in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, is that mockingbirds should not be killed as they only exist for the enjoyment of others and cause no harm and only minded their business. Another way in which Harper Lee uses the mockingbird as a symbol is through Tom Robinson.
