Although he doesn’t know it, we see his only friends at the stock market saying they would only go to Scrooge’s funeral ‘for the buffet.’ This shows that he is totally alone in the world and we therefore feel sorry for him. At the Beetling shop, people haggle over his possessions. This shows us that everything he worked and lived for does him no good in after life and cannot buy him mourners to keep the rats from ‘gnawing at the wall.’ We also feels sympathy as his debtors are happy to see him dead as they no longer have to pay him. If Scrooge understood, this would pain him and make him feel very alone with no one who cares for him. We, the reader, feel a lot of sympathy when he visits the Cratchit’s as he sees that Tiny Tim has died.
It is shown with Dolphus Raymond, who people do not see as fitting in with Maycomb, but the reader finds out why he lives the way he lives. Similarly, Boo Radley is introduced as the town crazy, and something people should be afraid of. By the end of the book the readers see that he is a normal person who chooses to avoid the drama of Maycomb. And finally, the readers see Mayella Ewell, a girl from a destructed family who tries to make her life better any way that she can. On the whole, the author shows in multiple ways that a person’s image is different on the outside than on the
Joyce portrays his poverty by having him sell his watch to buy the spirits that will provide temporary relief. In all of this, Joyce illustrates how poverty motivates people to behave in aberrant ways. However, he never offers hope to the impoverished. He states their wretched lives cleanly and clearly. Their lives are awful.
He states that the worst thing about being poor isn’t because of not having enough food but not having enough money to support him in difficult times. He even motivates himself by thinking “being hungry makes food taste better” (8). The worst thing happened to him that makes him hates being poor is when his family doesn’t have enough money to bring their dog to the doctor. By saying “I want to hate dad and mom for our poverty. I wanted to blame them for my sick dog and for all the other sickness in the world.” Although he doesn’t want to blames his parent and their previous generation to have born in a poor situation, he doesn’t have any order choice.
Americans should be happy with what they have because people around the world are dieing of hunger, while they sit around looking for the next thing to buy. II. Body Paragraph 1 (Adversity) A.

Crooks’s little dream of the farm is shattered by Curley’s wife’s nasty comments, putting the black man right into his "place" as inferior to a white woman, somebody already seen as being inferior to everyone else on the ranch to begin with. Crooks refuses to say Curley’s wife is wrong, he accepts the fact that he lives with ever-present racial discrimination, and says he had "forgotten himself" because they’d treated him so well. Crooks self-opinion isn’t based on what he believes he’s worth, but on knowing that no matter how he feels, others around him will always value him as less. As quickly as he got excited about the
Considering the characteristics of a mockingbird, it would be a sin to kill a mockingbird. Speaking of mockingbirds, there are quite a few people in this novel that, in analogy, are mockingbirds. For instance, Tom Robinson is great example. Tom is robbed of his innocence and is killed. He
Walter is a boy that Scout goes to school with who is poor. Aunt Alexandra was also prejudice toward the Cunningham family as well. Alexandra sees the Cunningham’s as really poor people and they are below the Finches social status in Maycomb. In the book Alexandra says “they’re good folks, but they’re not our kind of folks.” The Ewells were also another family in the town of Maycomb who was shown prejudice towards. They live near the Maycomb dump, so almost the whole town of Maycomb knows them as white trash.
This shows a reference to what Atticus and Miss Maudie had said earlier in the book about mockingbirds. Atticus had said “Remember, it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” Miss Maudie had later added to this by saying “Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy . . .
Dickens used his book Great Expectations as a medium to convey his vision of a fair and just society. Two groups of people that had very few rights in England at that time were children and prisoners. Children often had no say in their future and important decisions were made for them. Estella cannot even choose how to live her own life, instead she is taught by Miss Havisham to hate men and break their hearts, and as a result she cannot love. When Jaggers is telling Pip of the children he sees in his business, it is made clear that there was no government help for these kids and that if they were born into poverty stealing was almost the only thing they could do to survive.
