An example of Sykes lack of morals is, “If you such a big fool dat you got to have a fit over an earth worm or a string, ah don’t keer how bad ah skeer you” (705). Cleary Sykes does not care if he hurts or scares Delia and continuous to scare Delia with his ruthless actions. Delia also has lack of morals. Delia shows her lack of moral by leaving her husband in the house
Stradlater, Holden’s roommate, shows phoniness by how he is a “secret slob” also how it annoys Holden to where he gets into a fight with Stradlater over his sloppiness with Jane, which leads Holden to alienating him. Stradlater is a secret slob because as Holden says, “Stradlater was more of a secret slob. He always looked all right, Stradlater, but for instance, you should have seen the razor he shaved himself with. It was always rusty as hell and full of lather and hairs and crap” (35). This is showing Stradlater is a secret slob because he appears all right on the outside, but once someone gets to know him, they know he is slob.
Bernard’s actions hurt him a lot and he feels emotionally hurt. His excellence brings him a torture which others think is a treatment to kill his excellence. Also, Ender’s excellence is disliked by others when colonel Graff uses his sister to add torture toward Ender. Ender’s one weakness, his sister Valentine’s love is abolished by colonel Graff so that Ender will have no
Also, when regarding a historical event, the film production is irresponsible for educational function as they use dramatic license all the time. Even though the film had been blamed for numerous historical inaccuracies, it still succeeded and “[became] the number-one film worldwide for the calendar year 2001,” including Japan (“Pearl Harbor”). However, Pearl Harbor attack is a sensitive and significant subject whose historical contents should be treated carefully, to strike balance between entertaining purpose and educational
Ponyboy just had to see Johnny kill Bob and that was enough to make him lose his innocence. People like Randy and Steve just resent and hate the world so much that that would cause them to lose their innocence as well. Someone could lose their innocence just by thinking bad thoughts. S.E. Hinton definitely does not agree with William Blake’s poem: The Lily because in The Lily, William Blake is saying that innocence cannot be abolished or destroyed.
Just sit back, read, and see how the two stories unfold. The men in these two stories are total opposites. I believe Sykes is abusive and unfaithful to his wife Delia and does not care for her. I believe he treats her like garbage because he knows she will not retaliate. I also believe he beats her so he could feel more like a man and feel like he has all the power.
He loses himself in his emotions, but he struggles to control himself while “evolving the right way” (125) in order to survive. Gene feels guilty for losing himself, as a child would, when throwing a temper-tantrum. He does not mean to hurt people, especially the ones he cares for, he just does not know any better. Gene’s instincts kick in when he feels threatened, and he always regrets when they do. After Gene kicked Leper’s chair he says to Mrs. Lepellier, “I’m terribly-it was a mistake…he said something crazy.
For instance, a quote from him states, “What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word as I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.” This quote is from when Tybalt is talking to Benvolio while he is trying to stop the fight from occurring in the first scene. Because it says that Tybalt hates peace, he must like to fight. I also assume that the reason that the Montagues hate the Capulets is a very old problem that never affected Tybalt himself so he really has no reason to hate Benvolio. This shows that he hates people that he may not know well enough.
He dislikes ackly for the simple reason that he has bad hygiene and it annoys Holden. This small annoyance is something that most people would be able to get over but Holden has a habit of dwelling on these minor problems he has with everybody and not being able to get over them. With Stadlater just the fact that he took Jane out on a date and Holden has a secret crush on her, even though he hasn't seen her in years and there is no way for Stadlater to know that. Holden insists on disliking him for that small
Holden lives a very mixed up life. Holden is depressed because he learns that he is a failure after leaving Penecy since he flunked every subject except for English. Sally Hayes depresses Holden as well because he doesn’t understand why she wouldn’t want to run away with him. He says to Sally out of no where, "Look...here's my idea, how would you like to get the hell out of here"" (132; ch. 17).
