Instead of repenting for his sins he escapes them. Plus he is worried about his daughter because he believes that they will have a horrible future because of him. (LINES 1318-1923) Also by acting in his weak behavior he is trying to avoid his fate again. He does this physically. Because he was blind to the prophecy, he blinds himself to remember everything he had done.
The Corrupting Power of Women The portrayal of women in Of Mice and Men is limited and unflattering. We learn early on that Lennie and George are on the run from the previous ranch where they worked, due to encountering trouble there with a woman. Misunderstanding Lennie’s love of soft things, a woman accused him of rape for touching her dress. George berates Lennie for his behavior, but is convinced that women are always the cause of such trouble. Their enticing sexuality, he believes, tempts men to behave in ways they would otherwise not.
Lennie thought he had lost his work card but George had it the whole time as he didn' trust Lennie with it and thought he'd lose it. If either Lennie or George lost their work cards it meant they would be unable to do any work. Whilst they were out walking Lennie found a dead mouse, he wanted to keep it so he hid it from George. When George realised Lennie was hiding something he demanded Lennie
In Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the main character initially demonstrates qualities of being a tragic hero, but by conclusion of the play his deceitfulness and his overwhelming gullibility lead him to be portrayed as a criminal. Macbeth has serious issues with power, greed, and even his own self- esteem and self- conscious. He knows when he kills Duncan and Banquo that it is the wrong thing to do but he still does it anyways. He also becomes obsessed with idea of power and becomes more power hungry as each day passes. He has become an unstoppable killing machine who believes he is invincible once the three witches reveal their prophecies and their apparitions to Macbeth.
Although he is introduced as a loving father trying to care for his daughter, he does not want anyone bothering him and seems like an unfriendly person. With his powerful position in the village he is worried about what may be the cause of Betty’s illness, whilst many are assuming it is the cause of witchcraft, which he refuses to discuss. Abigail, Parris’ niece, enters the room and starts arguing with her uncle – however our first impression of this girl is that she may be truthful whilst Parris is unnecessarily angry at her, wanting her to confess all that happened in the woods. He says ‘I cannot go before the congregation when I know you have not opened with me’; he does not trust her and cannot lie to the village about the events that night. This makes us sympathise with him more.
Montresor is a dangerous and evil person in The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allen Poe. In this short story, Montresor is sensitive, trickey, and evil. Montresor is sensitive because he is going to kill Fortunato because he insulted him. In the story, Poe also shows us through the indirect characterization methods of Montresor’s own actions, words, and looks. When Montresor is ready to go to the catacomb with Fortunato, he puts “on a mask of black silk” and wraps himself up in “a roquelaire.” He wears the mask and the roquelaire because it hides his identity.
Mama’s good intentions of shielding Dagmar from the truth that her cat Uncle Elizabeth through dishonesty was not a good deed, however her intentions and the idea of good was clearly present, even when sending Nels to buy chloroform to put the cat out of his misery. Connection 2 Aristotle when writing about “the final good” says that the “…the final good is thought to be self-sufficient. Now by self –sufficient we do not mean that which is sufficient for a man by himself for on who lives a solitary life, but also for parents, children, wife and in general for his friends and fellow citizens, since man is born for citizenship.” Aristotle is thoroughly explaining his explanation of good and points out that good is independent and out of the control of others. He explains that by self-sufficient he is not referring to it in terms of the individual, but rather for the community as a whole. Early in the film while counting money to avoid going to the bank, the members of the family discuss where their money will be spent.
Steinbeck carries this theme throughout Of Mice and Men, the Great Depression what a dark and lonely time in America’s history and Steinbeck was trying to tell us it did not have to be this way. People can always reach out and develop relationships in order to stave of the “meanness” of isolation. Prejudices in the 1930’s kept people isolated itinerant worker life harsh and kept people on move and on their own.Tired of constantly reminding Lennie of things he should remember, George gets quickly angry when Lennie forgets to get the firewood, for example, and instead goes after the dead mouse. On the other hand, George's anger is quickly under control, and he blames himself for scolding Lennie. In fact, Steinbeck makes clear that, despite his complaining and frustration, George looks out for Lennie and genuinely cares for him.
George is sure that if the boss realizes Lennie is mentally disabled, they’ll be discriminated against and not hired. To George, Lennie’s mental disability is something that isn’t really that important – as long as he plays it down to others, it shouldn’t hinder them too much. George patted a wrinkle out of his bed, and sat down. "[The boss gave] the stable buck hell?" he
He understands that he was blind and made wrong decisions but at this point he is about to face his consequence of death.
