Though women were often accused of being easily impressionable, the older men and women were accused of being impure and diseased with malice. Since they were old and weak, they were easily deceived by the Devil. Older people are usually more susceptible to illnesses and they would often go blind or become hunch-backed. These physical abnormalities were easy for accusers to blame on the devil, tools to do the devil’s work or consequences for being a devil’s worker. Not only were these accusers using social prejudices, they were also using scientific facts against those accused.
If everyone is phony, then he is phony as well, saying if the world is insane will he also be insane?. Although Holden has says that he is a liar, he doesn't always realize if he is lying or telling the truth. And the distinctions between truth and falsehood becomes faint as
She never asked her what was wrong. Joe thought he knew all about Amanda seeing that they grew up together, but he didn’t feel that way anymore. Amanda often went to Joe when she was upset, had a problem or just needed someone to talk to. One night she admitted to Joe that her life was a mess. She said school is shit and home is shit but she didn’t explain why and Joe never asked.
The Pigman: Chapter 9-11 1) I don't think John and Lorraine are falling in love but have feelings for each other and don't want to admit it. 2) Norton is curious about Mr.Pignati because john and Lorraine go over to his house everyday after school. Johns reaction to Norton's questions is calm and not worried. He probably acts this way because if he shows any other emotions he will know something is going on. 3) Mr.Conlan's feelings toward John's drinking and smoking habits were disappointment.
However, he was still able to go through his life like that. The quote doesn't apply to All Quiet on the Western Front because Paul Baumer and his friends trusted the officials and this ended up leading to the death of all of them. "... It is impossible to go through life without trust..." This quote does not apply to The Catcher in the Rye because Holden Caulfield, the main character believes everyone is phony and doesn't trust anyone which is a major flaw. Holden’s major flaw affects his life
So sit back and try to make sense of me making sense of a character that thousands of other English students have tried to make sense of. Holden is a lonesome kind of a guy, as a good amount of teenagers are in the sense that he has a hard time fitting to someone. By that I mean he doesn't really click with any other person’s personality. He just sees everyone as a friendly acquaintance(besides Jane who he likes). Throughout the story he's always just about to call someone but always makes up an excuse not to.
He tries to preserve the viridity of the children by erasing the profanity showing what kind of person he really is. Even though he constantly curses himself, he never uses profanity in front of small children. Also just because things are written in a book doesn’t mean that they will actually do it. For example when Holden says “we could drive up to Massachusetts...And stay in this cabin...later on we can get married or something...” (171) Even though these ideas occur to him no teenager would actually do this because teens are smart enough to know about the consequences and results. A very good example of this is his date Sally who is roughly around the same age as him and thinks things through and is aware of the consequences.
Dill is trying to make himself look better to Scout and Jem so that he’ll be more respected and at the same time through his stories he hides his background form them, and Mayella tries to make herself look better to the people of Maycomb and to the general society, and through her stories she tries to hide the fact that she’s the one that did something wrong, and that she is actually the one breaking the social order. Again Dill is similar, but is an innocent version of Mayella. His lies and stories go no deeper than the surface, while Mayella’s lies and stories hide something much darker and deeper than
He constantly masks his problems and never deals with them. Sadly, many marriages lack the aspect of communication. In this story, if the couple would have expressed their concerns with one another, there might not have been such “blindness” within their marriage. The wife would recognize and deal with her husband’s self-doubt in regards to her friendship with Robert. Also, if the husband wasn’t using substances every night, he would realize that his underlying problems are not with Robert, but with himself.
My opinion of the movie “The Mack” is that it sheds a negative light on young black women and men. It clearly gave the impression that all women are hoes and black men can’t live the good life without pimping or selling crack. Young urban minorities watch television and movies and they see the glitz and glamour think it’s cool and want the fame. Goldie who considered himself to be a “hero” but in reality he was toxic, he was a villain, he was a murder, a drug dealer and a pimp. I would have to say that his brother was more so “The hero” but of course the movie had little focus on that.
