Ben is one of the main characters in this story. He is the son of a racist mum who does not let him play with his brown neighbour Daisy. He is a caring character with a nice personality he does not judge anybody just because of their race. I feel sympathy for him because he in between his mother who is racist and wrong and Daisy who is a sweet brown girl who just wants to play with him, Ben does not know which one to choose as if he chooses his mum he will hurt Daisy and if he chooses Daisy his mum would not be happy at all. He is in an awkward position in this short story.
The novels Ethan Frome and Catcher in the Rye by Edith Wharton and J.D.Salinger, respectively, are two great works that depict two characters’ struggles in life. Three themes that both novels share are the need for companionship, regret over lost potential and immersion in a fantasy world. Ethan Frome and Holden Caulfield are both very lonely characters in desperate need for companionship and compassion. They both search for human contact of sorts to prevent the onset of loneliness. Frome marries Zenobia Pierce prematurely, only to obviate “the mortal silence of…long imprisonment.” (Wharton, page 61) He wanted “the sound of a …voice” to fill the void on his farm.
Big world by Tim Winton depicts the main ideas of how friends and family can have such an impact on and individuals identity, we can see this through an example where the main protagonist quoted “ My mother is trying to wean off biggies. In fact she's got a program all mapped out to get us back on track,” here we can see the use of metaphor where the mother isn't literally mapping out a plan but as a mother she is the one that helps her children get back on path, therefore she is a major influence in how her children's identity is influenced. The poem Identity by Cyrus Diaz depicts the isolation relationship which the poet illustrates through the use of repetition of true
Though she does not hide her insecurities as much as Amanda does. She does not put on an act because she is very shy and can be best understood through her body language. Mama observes this behavior in the beginning of the text by explaining “Maggie will be nervous until after her sister goes: she will stand hopelessly in corners homely and ashamed” (297). Maggie is ashamed because of the “burn scars down her arms and legs” (297) from a house fire years ago. The insecurities of Maggie’s character are not just skin deep, much like my own.
When Lil Bit first began being taken advantage of she didn’t know what was happening and that it wasn’t ok. She didn’t have someone like Sister A. there to tell her that she needed to be protected. Similar to the way that Father Flynn is presented as a overall good guy, Vogel attempted to create Uncle Peck as a very flawed human being, using pathos in order to try to make the reader connect with him. However its not that simple to make the audience connect with a pedophile. Lil Bit has a monologue where she pities her uncle and wonders what happened to him to make

Though Heathcliff does demonstrate behavior that would indicate him as a fiend from hell, Bronte does portray him as an outsider. An orphan that was luckily “saved” by Mr. Earnshaw, HeaHHHhhhHhoishgslakgnsalkgnsadHeathcliff was not meant for Wuthering Heights, and for the majority of his childhood, he was not particularly welcome. He was repeatedly put down, most evident when Catherine acknowledges the fact that by marrying Heathcliff, she would have nothing. This forces him to accept the fact that his social status, or lack of one, forbids him from being with her. His actions when he returns from his absence are those of an impassioned man who is forced to watch his love be with another.
Hooks mentions that she did not share the sensibility and values of her peers. She says “class was not just about money; it was about values which showed and determined behavior.” Hooks was adamant about not losing the values she obtained from her family back home in Kentucky. She felt that she did not need a new set of beliefs and values. As an example hooks describes how shocked and disturbed she felt when her peers would talk about their parents without respect, or would even say that they hated their parents. It was explained to her that such hatred was “healthy and normal”.
Bella’s guilt caused by her mother’s fear of loneliness has left her short of any male relations. She cannot escape the wrath of her mother, and continually surrenders to her mother's will. Also, Bella has felt she cannot start her own relationship because her mother, in an effort to protect her living children, she has trained them not to feel by hardening them with punishments such as locking them in a closet or beating them with her cane” (Bloom, Harold. “List of characters in Lost in Yonkers. p67-68).
