He uses constant sexual encounters as a way to feel attractive to combat the self-confidence issues he felt growing up. 5. The Freudian stage that Steve is fixated is the phallic stage. This is the stage when the pleasure is formed from the genital region, this could have contributed to the fixation because of Steve continually having relations with females but having difficulty establishing mature heterosexual relationships. What could have caused this fixation is fear of feeling never being good enough and confident.
Terry’s transformation throughout the film is stemmed from his moral awakening due to the betrayal he feels from Johnny Friendly and his “henchmen”. Initially, he is determined to disregard his conscience yet as a result of the guilt & restlessness he feels in regards to his role in Joey’s murder, his conscience becomes distinguished. His guilt over the murder is juxtaposed against the carelessness of the mobsters who joke that Joey could “sing but he couldn’t fly”, it is here that the Kazan separates Terry from the mob as he conveys him as a vulnerable & sensitive character as his conscience begins to overpower his ‘tough guy’ act. Kazan’s use of mist and fog relentlessly suppressing Terry Mallow highlights the ambiguity in Terry’s conscience, which reflects he is only just beginning to initiate recognition to his morals
In my paper I will attempt to answer from my observation about the book about these two boys and how this may have come to pass. For the sake of my paper I will identify the author as Wes Moore (A) and the other Wes Moore as Wes Moore (B). Both of the boys were raised by single black mother’s. Wes Moore’s (A) father, who was a respected radio and television host, tragically died in front of Wes when Wes was only three years old from an undiagnosed but very treatable virus that the hospital had misdiagnosed. Although Wes’ mother tried making it with her children on her own it was very difficult.
As I have already stated numerous times, and I am sure that you are tired of hearing, The Other Wes Moore is a story of great emotion, about two children with the same name and very similar lifestyles, growing up, but ending up in two completely different places with their lives. The story tells of Wes Moore, the author, facing poverty and his ambition to receive a proper education, and Wes Moore, a man convicted of murder in the first-degree and sentenced to a life in prison. How could these two boys have grown up so similarly, but one went on to be very successful, and the other a convict? The book tell the author's side of the story, the story of his childhood and his life. Wes Moore grows up under very poor conditions, and barely makes it by with his small family.

Author Peter Moskos took a different approach to writing a book about the police than most authors do. Instead of interviewing different officers form departments and believing all they have to say (because they never talk up stories or stretch the truth), Peter Moskos became a Baltimore cop and worked in the ghetto of the eastern district. In his book Cop in the Hood, he talks about the everyday struggles of being a cop and also talks about his personal view of policing and the academy. In the beginning of the book Peter talks about how useless he and other officers feel the academy is. He says that the sole purpose of the academy is “to protect the department from the legal liability that could result from negligent training” (22).
The story Marriage is a Private Affair by Chinua Achebe has a villain named Okeke. His stolid look on things made it hard for him to keep an amicable relationship with his son. Harrison Bergeron’s, by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., villain would be The H-G men. They go to extreme actions to provide equality. The Judges in The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe are considered villains because of how they torture innocent civilians.
The fact that the speaker chases Clarinda “without blushes” also implies that their same-sex relationship has an original sense of intimacy. Their sexual interaction also supports this intimacy and freedom because they are both aware of a woman’s sexual desires. It is understandable why the speaker finds Clarinda so irresistible and liberating. However the speaker still struggles with her desires, just as she would struggle for an anatomically male companion. The reader is left to interpret her pain as merely self-inflicted.
