ENGL 204 [ 26 March 2013 ] Huckleberry Finn Discussion Board It is fair to say that Huck's “circumstances and his own moral nature make him the least carefree of boys - he is always “in a pickle” over the predicament of someone else”. Huck has to achieve some sort of balance between his natural inclinations and what he has been taught by society. From reading through this work multiple times, it would seem that Huck is almost obsessed with Tom. It is evident in the things he says such as, “I did wish Tom Sawyer was there”, or “I wish Tom Sawyer was here” and “I reckoned Tom Sawyer couldn't a done it no neater himself”. Those are a few examples which would seem to corroborate with this.

Jeanette Sara From Show and Tell: Scott McCloud- Language of Composition 1. McCloud’s first sixteen panels reveal a sense of both pathos and ethos because although there are no words in the first six panels, the audience can sense the fearfulness, and how the boy is hesitant and introverted as seen because he says nothing at all which shows the pathos. Yet, as the panel continues and we see how his eyes begin to light up when speaking of the toy, this sense of emotion is what develops the boy’s ethos. Later, we notice that the true narrator is actually an older version of the boy remembering his past experience. 2.
Although he was quite young to be part of the greaser’s gang, Ponyboy Curtis showed many people that he could have been one of the greatest hero’s in the novel.

Although constant evil swirls around Bruno, he is able to hang on to his innocence, which shields him from the knowledge of the situation he is in, but ultimately leads to his and Shmuel’s downfall. Bruno’s innocence becomes quite apparent throughout the course of the novel. He portrays this childish innocence through his lack of understanding on many of the changes that have been happening in his life. Bruno portrays this quite clearly by asking his father : "Did you do something bad in work? I know that everyone says you're an important man and that the Fury has big things in mind for you, but he'd hardly send you to a place like this if you hadn't done something that he wanted to punish you for."

The Red Badge of Courage is often perceived by readers as a story of a young inexperienced and fearful boy, Henry Fleming, who eventually transforms into a courageous war hero. There are, however, fragments of the novel which suggest that the change in Henry’s mind is minimal, including the fact that the book covers only quite a short period of time. From some perspectives, developing courage in a form of losing self-preservation is the only change Henry undergoes, and otherwise remains the same person as in the beginning of the novel. The first part of the book, as W.B.Dillingham points out, deals with “the anatomy of cowardice”. Henry Fleming enlists in the army as a young and immature soldier dreaming about becoming a veteran and gaining
