You don’t need a gun”(Wright 373). In this particular quote, Wright seems to point out that the desire of the boy is not the gun itself, but the legality of him owning one. Since owning a gun is the fantasy of the boy, because others do not approve of the idea, it seems as if he pushes for it even more. The store clerk offers the boy two dollars for the gun. With this thought in mind, the boy begins his journey towards an unexpected fate.
He is complicit in Dwight’s attempt to lure Rosemary; he finds that they are too deeply entwined to stop the prevent carnage. Dwight’s attempts to “improve” Toby and turn him into a “man”, highlight the extreme vulnerability and sense of powerlessness that pervade many of the surrogate father figures in the novel. Dwight constantly sets him up for ridicule. For example, he makes him “shuck” horse chestnuts without gloves, which is an incredibly difficult task. His fingers become covered with a yellow stain and people think that he is hygienically unclean.
In the story the main character Dave bought a gun the gun was supposedly to be given to Dave’s father to save and only use for protection. Instead Dave lies, cheats, deceives, and manipulates his way into keeping the gun for himself. In my opinion the gun in the story symbolizes Respect Dave believes that he is a man, just because he has a gun. Dave believes that everyone will view and respect him as a man. Dave thinks that if the men see him with the gun, that it will show the men if he is man enough to have a gun, then he is definitely man enough to shoot it; As a result, they will view him as a man rather than a boy.
But in all reality it is Gene who resents Finny and his resentment increases when Finny does not attain a reciprocal envy. When Gene's acts resentment drives him to enacts malicious thoughts and behaviors, he suddenly realizes that his real enemy lies not with Finny, but within himself, Finny's lack of comprehension with reality destroys him, and war is an internal conflict that beings spend their lives fighting against(This view is also shared by Bryant Hallman). Gene is very intelligent who ultimately adores and is jealous of Finny. He increasingly loses character and thinks to disperse it with his friend. Gene copes with his jealousy by convincing himself that he and Finny were "even after all, even in enmity.
Even before Amir betrays him, Hassan makes him feel guilty simply by being such a righteous person. Amir would regret his decisions all his
Dimmesdale is just too weak and good-natured to shoulder the kind of blame he is foisting upon himself.He tried to hide his sin and guilt but, his heart literally weakened, and he died. 1a) "Poor, miserable man! what right had infirmity like his to burden itself with crime? Crime is for the iron-nerved, who have their choice either to endure it, or, if it press too hard, to exert their fierce and savage strength for a good purpose, and fling it off at once!” Pg.172 Do not be a hypocrite. Do not put a false point to the world to make it seem like you have no faults.
Peter shows how he hates work, so the key to his happiness is just not going. Although he Peter was all for his own happiness, Milton began to think in a similar further into the film. This caused the two characters to butt heads. Milton told Peter he would not turn down his radio volume, basically just because it made him happy. A line from Self Reliance by Emerson tells that “their rage is decorous and prudent, for they are timid, as being vulnerable themselves.” Milton’s lack of timidity helped him gain his personal happiness therefore exemplifying transcendentalism.
Unfortunately, something went wrong. Mr and Mrs Shelton are understandably upset because of the low-quality service provided. Their version and Mr Hoffner’s one are quite contrasting; restraining from determining which of those is true, a dysfunction occurred and it have to be righted. Mr Shelton’s points pertain to more than one problem: the main reason of his complaint is their clothes lost. But when he raised his query about dynamics of events he encountered other lacks: first of all Mr Hoffner’s weak willingness to handle his customer’s complaint, but also his own incompetence in trying to repair that issue.
This is not always a bad attribute; but, these emotions end up clouding Dave’s mind and cause him to make poor decisions. His bad judgment leads him from one bad situation to another, proving that he is no man. Dave uses many tactics to get what he wants throughout this tale, including manipulation, deception, and when all else fails, taking the coward way out and running away. In the beginning, Dave seems to be a little irritated and upset from the lack of respect he receives from some of the boys around town. What Dave does not understand is that you need to give respect to get respect.
But the answer to the question, as is so often the case, is all in how you ask it. You see, if the question is, can the life and death of a salesman be tragic?, then, of course, the answer is yes it can. Nor does it require that he be a "great" man, but it does require that he be a good man. The problem with trying to imbue this play with the aura of tragedy is not that Willy Loman is a little man, it's that he's not a good man : he's not much of a salesman; he cheats on his wife; he lives vicariously and unfairly through his eldest son, Buck, then makes excuses for that son's pathological misbehavior; he virtually ignores his second son; he's a real bastard to friends, neighbors and extended family; and so on. Perhaps I missed something, but what quality is it in Willy that should make us regret his departure?
