He does not know what he should do or say. Jealous of the former relationship between his wife and Robert, he is suspicious. He knows that his wife has told Robert about him and has probably complained about his faults. This makes him feel guilty and insecure. He later says how "I was not enthusiastic about his visit.... A blind man in my house was not something I looked forward to” (100).
This quote makes me feel icy towards the students and teachers; also it makes me feel sorry for Stanley. Though, the only reason I feel annoyed with the teachers is because it REALLY doesn’t matter how a person looks on the outside, what matters is how they are on the inside. At the start of the novel, Stanley is described as being unpopular and is over-weight. “He didn’t have any friends at home. He was over-weight.” This quote supports my ideas by saying that he does not have any friends and is stout.
It scares him because other people might reflect his sons behavior on him. He really tries to be exactly the opposite of his father. He mistook this behavior as masculinity. He also does not realize that people in the village dont really think its right, the way he treats his wife and children. His behaviour clearly shows that he actually has a really weak character.
During the trip, the father realizes that there is a lot of hostility between the kids. The brother keeps nagging on his sister, trying to scare her. When the father sees this, he says that people think they are safe but they really are just thinking that they are invisible because their eyes are closed (Hempel 1203). The family was safe together until the separation. The father was thinking that everything was fine between the kids, but when he got them together he saw how sarcastic they were to each other.
Family members are supposed to be nice to each other. They aren't supposed to bully or be mean to each other. Doodle's brother, from James Hurst's "The Scarlet Ibis," does not follow this family standard. A lot of readers say that he was a good brother but the truth is that he was not. He was arrogant and ungenerous to Doodle and only did things for himself.
Salinger, Holden Caulfield struggles with accepting that what his ideals are in his life are not what actually exist in the outside world. Holden has experienced several traumatic loses in his life that have caused him to believe in what he does. In Holden’s mind, after his younger brother Allie’s death, all children are incapable of seeing the complexity of the adult world. He sees them all as innocent children, but cannot understand that this innocence diminishes as the children become adults. If you copy this essay your teacher will know.
Scout originally did not have the skill to empathize, but thanks to Atticus, earns it. Had Scout not honed in on this skill, the end of the book, and the message would have been affected. Bob Ewell is a very unempathetic man and did not teach his children the skill. Bob Ewell is so unempathetic, that in fact in the novel, he was referred to as a low down skunk. His children particularly Mayella, have been affected by this lack of empathy, and have developed it as well.
Brotherly Love? “The Scarlett Ibis” by James Hurst shows what cruelty really means. For Brother the fact that he has an invalid sibling is like the end of the world. It was almost like Brother didn’t love his brother Doodle because of his disabilities.Because Brother would get tired of dealing with Doodle, he would be cruel to him. Brother’s cruelty toward Doodle comes from the embarrassment at having an invalid brother, the burden of having to take care of Doodle, the disappointment of Doodle not living up to his expectations.
“There was a time when I could have lost my friend,” he said, “I kept making excuses about not being able to go out on my bike with him.” Nelson is a kid who has high self-esteem. He had internalized his worry and stress and he would rather solve all the difficulties by himself than ask anyone for help. At first he became a social outcast because of his erratic behavior and he even got angry with his friend for telling the teachers about the things he was going through. Sometimes he even truants from school and fails to finish his homework. But what he didn’t expected was when all his friends knows about his condition, they volunteered their time to help him when he was falling behind the school, and sometimes even help him with his mum’s daily care.
Someone who blames everyone else for the consequences of their actions? Someone who doesn't own-up to their actions and try to make the situation better again? Cole is that 'someone'. He goes to the island mad at his parents because all the other times that he was in trouble with the law, his parents would pay the fees and get him out, however, this time, none of that happens. It was his mistake for beating up Peter anyways, yet he's mad at his parents and his lawyer because they didn't get him out.
