Hassan has taken the blame for Amir their hole chidhood whilst they shot nuts at the neighbors dog and here he takes the risk of being attacked by Assef in order to get to the fallen kite for Amir. His kindness only emphasises the horror of the scene because it contrasts completely with Amir's inability to step up and protect his friend. Amir only thinks of himself and his want to please his father whilst Hassan thinks only of Amir “for you a thousand times over.” Hosseini doesn't give a detailed description of this scene. Every time it has the potential to become graffic, Amir takes his mind off of the situation. Only about a page and a half reflects the duration and the word ‘rape’ is not used.
From the time that Raymond is first introduced, the reader sees that he is involved in numerous illegal activities, but is left to wonder why Meursault would agree to be ‘pals’ with him. One comes to realize that Meursault really does not care how others lead their lives. Raymond casually admits that he beats his girlfriend and asks Meursault what he thinks about the situation to which he responds just as casually, “…I didn’t think anything, but that it was interesting”(30). Meursault does not judge those who lead bad lives because he is a stranger to remorse and forethought alike and sees no reason that anyone else should be acquainted with them either. By being a corrupt

‘A view from a bridge’ is a tragic novel written by Arthur Miller in 1955 which is set in the 1950’s in Red Hook, New York, a rather poor area in America at the time where there were several Italian illegal immigrants at the time working there mainly in forms of manual labour for relatively cheap pay to earn more money than back at home in Italy in areas such as Sicily. In ‘A view from the bridge’, Arthur Miller focuses on the story of an Italian – American longshoreman named Eddie Carbone, and his relationships with the two main women in his life, his wife Beatrice and his niece Catherine, as well as those in which he shares with his Italian relatives, Marco and Rodolpho, who both contrast in personalities and have come over to stay with Eddie in order to find work out on the docks. In portraying Eddie’s relationships with these people in his life, Miller is also able to heavily reflect on the moral and cultural codes of the Italian - American community at the time in which Eddie was living in, so through this as well as focusing on Eddie’s relationships with the main people in his life we are able to gain several impressions of him, even from early on in the story from pages 1 – 30, via the work of Miller. The first impression that we gain as the audience about Eddie is that something bad will eventually happen to him. We know this because in the first act of the play, the Greek Chorus of the play, Mr Alfieri, who is an Italian – American lawyer, comes out on stage to speak to the audience, initially introducing the distinctions between justice and the law from an Italian point of view at the time in New York, making it quite clear that Italians are very keen on the idea of justice and getting what is right rather than have the law dictate it for them, for example ‘Justice is very important here’ (page 4).

Roy one of the patients is the one to get the ball rolling with ideas on how to do the play and to getting the patients enthusiastic about it all.

He thinks he gets to see his family again, and that’s a sign of guilt, and betrayal to his loved ones, and for the people that have been there for him. The main point of this story, and why, or why not Peyton Farquhar should have been hanged is he showed an act of hate toward the country, and it is very ignominy (unit 4, page 52) of him to do so. This is a main concern because if you’re in another country, and you do something to hurt it then why be in the country harming other lives over someone telling you to do something that would
Italy’s ability to evolve to the changing tastes and demands of European fashion gives it a unique durability in the history of travel. The authors of the Encyclopedia expound the eighteenth century culture of travel perfectly when they exclaim that there is ‘no better school for life than travel’, and it could be added that there was no better school than Italy. The original purpose of the Grand Tour, to which travel to Italy has become almost synonymous, was to educate male heirs in the skills they needed to operate within polite society. Italy was ideal, as not only did it have a lively courtly culture where up-do-date etiquette could be learned, but it was crucially at the heart of the classical world. Of course the classical past was the unique draw of Italy, but it should not be forgotten that there was a lively fine arts scene in which foreigners were keen to participate and an intellectual circuit for the ‘curious’ traveller.
