The author made clear that the family did not like his father, but it was difficult to decide if Yunior loved his father. In a few instances, Yunior describes his father in an affectionate way. Because Yunior often threw up in the van, his father toped that Yunior would become familiar with the van by driving him around in it. When his father tried to cure him of his carsickness, Yunior “looked forward to [their] trips...These were the only times [Yunior] and Papi did anything together. When [they] were alone he treated [Yunior] much better, like maybe [he] was his son or something” (312).
His opinion is mixed because although he accepts the society’s idea of Jim being a slave he still respects him. His acceptance of the society’s idea of Jim being a slave is shown when Huck addresses Jim as “Miss Watson’s nigger” (Twain, 17). By addressing Jim as such Huck is excepting society’s position on slavery without really having any experience with it himself. Huck’s acceptance is also shown when Jim brings up the idea of stealing his wife and children back, in which he responds “It most froze me to hear such talk” (Twain, 88). This shows his acceptance because he doesn’t see Jim as a person and he sees his children as someone else’s property, which he feels would be wrong to steal.
George realizes that it is wrong to make a weaker living suffer. George admits that Lennie is “dumb as hell.” Using metaphors and similes the reader can better understand how much George loves Lennie. Slim then starts to realize where George is coming from and starts to appreciate their friendship. This characterizes George as caring, loving, and optimistic. George won’t let Lennie “go down alone” because he cares about his friend so much and knows he doesn’t deserve that.
He does not refute George’s insult though he calls him nasty names such as “a crazy son-of-a-bitch.” (Steinbeck 11) Lennie even offers to give up his ketchup for George — a childish and simple offer, yet it is a true sacrifice during the Great Depression. No doubt, his action touched George. Consequently, mutual sacrifice prompts a healthy friendship. Nonetheless, sacrifice in friendship is not always equally made. In reality, due to Lennie’s incapability to properly react to the potential threats in society, George has to make more sacrifice in order to protect him from harm.
O Brother Where Art Thou displays that not all life threatening experiences will change us for the better. Everette is a con man, someone who doesn’t believe in God and whenever something happens he says “There has to be a scientific explanation”. At the end when the sheriff catches the three men and is ready to kill them, Everette drops to his knees and starts praying to God, asking for forgiveness and a flood occurs. In literature a flood represents rebirth and a new beginning. Everette, and the viewers, think that his life will get better when the flood is over, that he will believe in God, leave the con life and his wife Penny will come back to him.
Her use of “good” is bias since she states he is not common. In the end, the grandmother’s classification of “good man” states that “good” doesn’t imply “moral” or “courteous”. For her, a man is a “good man” if his values are coordinated with her own. Red Sammy is “good” because he trusts people at random and greatly remembers more innocent times with which the grandmother also remembers. The Misfit is “good” because she believes he wouldn’t shoot a lady.
This makes Ray resent the majority of his school associates but out of respect and because he is a well-mannered, nice boy Ray puts these feelings of resentment to one side and doesn't make an issue of them.

A Good View The definition of a "good man" can be misunderstood and sometimes misapplied when being interpreted by the wrong person. In "A Good Man is Hard to Find", the grandmother seemingly applies the title of "good" to any man who shows even a small glimpse of morally acceptable character. This referring to how surprisingly quick she is to give that label to certain people such as Mr. Teagarden, Red Sammy, The Misfit, without even knowing the individuals that well. Her central role in the story is focused upon in several key moments, with her being heard applying the label of "good man" to certain characters. This misplaced trust of hers caused her to meet an unexpected and tragic end.
