Compare and Contrast In the condition of being surrounded by conflict, people must make a choice which they think will resolve their problem. In the short story “Lather and Nothing Else” by Hernando Tellez, the barber has a big struggle in which he must first consider his values before making a decision and must decide his fate.

On the other hand, there is Bronte’s novel Wuthering Heights, which begins with secondary narrator Mr. Lockwood’s arrival at his temporary home where he meets his “solitary neighbor that [he] shall be troubled with”, Heathcliff in “a perfect misanthropists heaven”. Heathcliff acts harshly and coldly towards Lockwood, piquing Lockwood’s curiosity of Heathcliff’s past and pushes him to question primary narrator, Nelly Dean. From here, the story begins in the form of a flashback, which accentuates the tragic events that occur during Heathcliff’s life, all continually moving towards present day. Many things play a role in
The strained father son relationship that Baba and Amir have is the catalyst for Amir’s crime against his half-brother Hassan. Amir’s strained relationship with Baba and his need for Baba’s acceptance has blinded Amir so that he is unable to see that his actions towards Hassan in the alley were unacceptable. The responder is given as insight into Amir’s thoughts through the use of first person narration, before, during and after the rape. This allows the reader to observe how the strained relationship between Baba and Amir has affected the motivation of Amir to commit his sin. Throughout the early chapter of the book we learn that Amir has “always felt that Baba hatted [him] a little.” He has always longed for his father’s approval, acceptance and admiration, as he feels responsible for the death of his mother.
The performance of Jim Carrey was outstanding as the introverted withdrawn Joel; One of his best performances so far. Kate Winslet pulled it off beautifully, as always, as the impulsive, vibrant, and outgoing Clementine and her personality was emphasized by her constantly-changing bright hair color. But I think it’s a bit of a cliché for an introverted shy withdrawn guy to fall in love with an impulsive outgoing girl and for her to get him out of his bubble. The movie is a bit complicated and confusing when you see it for the first time because of the non-chronological (non-linear) order of the story but I think it serves the story very well. It emphasizes Joel’s state of mind and his confusion, struggling, and fear.
In Hamlet, Claudius' character is developed into a shrewd and conniving one.

The world was always puzzling, but after the war people didn’t even bother to find any significance in life. After the war, people resided to sex and drunkenness for the fulfillment of their hopelessness. The characters in Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises struggle with these problems. Hemingway tries to portray how the lives of the Lost Generation were simply disintegrating into the dark abyss. Through the characters of The Sun Also Rises, Hemingway tries to depict the aimless lives of people and how they became “lost”.
It’s very well handled and easy to follow. The Characters & Cast The film did an excellent job of cutting and combining unnecessary characters and streamlining that part of the narrative - Madge, The Mayor, Peeta’s father, and a handful of other small parts are missing entirely, but it’s almost unnoticeable. Even with the combining and cutting that was done, the supporting cast is quite frankly an embarrassment of riches, especially considering how little screen time most of these heavy hitters actually get. Elizabeth Banks is a perfect and hilarious Effie, and her character easily has the best costume design in the entire production, as it should be. There’s also some unspoken commentary to be drawn from the fact that Banks is a beautiful woman, and yet overdressed and styled as she is here, she’s a borderline horror show, which is fascinating.
