Readers know she made a major impact on him, because at the beginning of the book, he said, “It was a pleasure to burn” (3), but later said, “There must be something in books, something we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing” (51). This shows how influential Clarisse was on Guy while she was still there. She also made him realize that he was not actually happy in life; he does not like his job or love his wife. He even said that he doe not think that he would cry if she dies.
In the novel, they really struggled with many things - the adoption process, Sohrab trusting Amir and most importantly, Sohrab's attempted suicide. These hardships really were important to the overall story and I wish they were included. Not only did they not expand this time period, the discussion between Soraya and Amir about children was never shown. I think this was important because they vetoed adoption in the book, but made an exception in the end. I think that should have
When Olive saw Kevin back in town, she invited herself into the passenger seat of his car where she sensed something was wrong. Olive may not have known plans of committing suicide were going through Kevin’s head, but she could sense something was not right. Kevin did not want her there; he wanted to be alone with his inner blankness and loaded rifle. Kevin thoroughly planned how he would kill himself, even where it would take place. He was content with being numb and was glad he felt nothing when he watched a man bonding with his son; he knew he was ready for death.
'Curley's wife is a very complex character because she is presented in different personalities at different chapters and in this chapter we see that she desires freedom and fame. Steinbeck presents her in such way that or opinion of her changes through out the novel, first we see her as a flirt then we see her presented in a horrible racist personality and now Steinbeck presents her as Innocent. Steinbeck did this because at this chapter where she dies it's like he wants us to feel sympathy for her because not that she is dead her problems are gone and there is not need for attentions because now she looks relaxed laying down on the hay. The language used in this chapter is very descriptive especially the part when Curley's wife dies, this might be because at the time
It was the ultimate act of friendship and sacrifice, on George's part, to kill Lennie. He knew that Lennie would be lynched and hung for murdering Curley's wife. He also knew that Lennie didn't know any better, he had no idea the power of his own strength, he did not fully know the ramifications of what he had done, but he did know that it was bad and that he might get into trouble. George basically spared Lennie from a death filled with pain and suffering and Lennie almost had this moment of clarity when he knows what George has to do and he's ok with it. 3.
The very same type of ending was seen when Holden recalled the movie he watched about the Englishman who had lost his memory and his response to it. He describes the movie as, “don’t see it if you don’t want to puke all over yourself” (138). His response to the movie most likely would have been because of how Holden had believed that Allie was somehow going to get through a terrible situation, which was clearly explained in the movie that Holden watched, but since Allie did
When they laugh at her warnings and she gets upset, Minerva says, "Come on, Dede. Think how sorry you'd be if something should happen to us and you didn't say goodbye." But before they leave, she cries out her real fear: "I don't want to have to live without you." The reader knows that is her fate exactly: to live after her sisters die as martyrs, and thus to tell their story. Another instance of foreshadowing occurs after Tio Pepe reports what Trujillo said at the gathering at the mayor's house.
That is why Twain criticizes those who are superstitious, because all it is is one mans word; there is no way of knowing if the event is actually related to the amount of luck an individual has. In chapter four of the novel, we see Huck worrying over bad luck, yet again. He becomes superstitious that he will have bad luck because he tipped over the salt cellar and was not able to throw a pinch of salt over his shoulder. He said, "…the Widow put in a good word for me, but that warn't going to keep off the bad luck, I knowed that well enough" (15). Again we see Huck worrying that he will have serious bad luck ,in the future, because of something minor that happened in the present.
Tom also wanted to leave once because he killed a police officer and didn’t want his family to get in trouble. “Thinks all the trouble is aimed right smack at her. If I’m gonna get her upset like that I oughta go ‘long.”(Steinbeck 539). Having a place to call home was also important to the family. They learned to not take a roof over their head for granted because they often had to sleep in a tent.
She also uses rhetorical devices to make the reader think about the situation as well as being involved. Cayte Williams changes the tone again, when she refers to Jane Horwood's experiences. Sunbed-tanning is rendered a dangerous addiction, especially with the mention of smoking and anorexia. In social circles, smoking and anorexia are probably the most 'frowned upon'. The dangers of smoking and anorexia both are very perilous, and to be connected with 'harmless' suntanning 'shocks' readers.
