Kristapher Guillen Mrs. Trammell Ap Language & Composition January 30 2013 The Juxtaposition of the King's men Within the famed novel, All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren uses juxtaposition in order to convey one of the novel's most prominent themes. Throughout All The King’s Men, there is a constant struggle between innocence and awareness. For a reader to fully understand the novel one must acknowledge this struggle, for it is integral to the transformations of several major characters and the development of the novel itself. In the book, there are many cases where ignorance does prove to be bliss. However, there are also quite a few instances where awareness helps to empower a character.

Paul eventually learns that John is innocent, but John chooses to die anyways because he is ready to escape the cruelty of the world. (King, 1996) The Green Mile is a good example of Kings ability to write in any genre. This novel is more of a suspense than his usual horror. Unlike cujo, The green Mile touches the reader on a more emotional level because the reader starts to show empathy for John the further into the book you read. While I was reading this book, my emotions where all over the place.
Though John had already confessed his affair in front of the entire court, when Elizabeth is questioned she denies it, claiming that “[her] husband is a goodly man” (3.949-50). Her lying is understandable though because naturally when people are placed in situations where their words literally determine the life or death of a loved one, they will lie to protect them. However, it is not seen that way, and causes controversy since Proctor previously claimed that his wife never lied; this is a turning point in Elizabeth’s character because it proves Elizabeth still loves her husband enough to even defy her commitment to always tell the truth. Later, after the court deems John as a threat, both Elizabeth and John are sentenced to prison allowing Elizabeth ample time to properly assess her marital problems. She eventually comes to the conclusion that the affair was partially her fault and confesses to John that “[she] counted [herself] so plain, so poorly made; no honest love could come to [her]”
So Cyrano goes up to Roxane and talks to her and comes back and lies that he told her everything and she still loves him. As soon as Christian heard that he died (4.10). Cyrano lied to Christian because he knew that if he told Roxane the truth then she would not say that she wants Christian but be in a state of shock and Christian would have to die in that state. This is why Cyrano had lied to Christian saying that Roxane has accepted Christian so he can die in peace and with no burden of a lie on his shoulders. This proves that he’s selfless and a caring guy because he didn’t want to let Christian die thinking that Roxane doesn’t love him.

It turns out that Miguel's grandparents are forgiving him for killing his brother, which is the big conspiracy that set this whole thing in motion. And finally Rondell and Miguel decide to stop running from their past and go back to the group home to make amenends. We Were Here is one powerful book by Matt De La Pe`na because it could help anyone understand more of themselves. Also this book could help those whom have had issues overcoming serious problems. I loved this book also because when miguel narrates it is like your a speaking to a real person.

He like Mr Birling wants to protect his own interests he did however have some genuine feeling for Daisy Renton as we can see he is very moved when he hears of her death. He tells Inspector Goole that he arranged for her to live in his friend's flat "because I was sorry for her;". Despite this, in Act III he tries to come up with as much evidence as possible to prove that the Inspector is a fake - because that would get him off the hook. It is Gerald who confirms that the local force has no officer by the name of Inspector Goole, he realises it may not have been the same girl and he finds out from the infirmary that there has not been a suicide case in months. He seems to throw his energies into "protecting" himself rather than "changing" himself (unlike Sheila).
