He tries to preserve the viridity of the children by erasing the profanity showing what kind of person he really is. Even though he constantly curses himself, he never uses profanity in front of small children. Also just because things are written in a book doesn’t mean that they will actually do it. For example when Holden says “we could drive up to Massachusetts...And stay in this cabin...later on we can get married or something...” (171) Even though these ideas occur to him no teenager would actually do this because teens are smart enough to know about the consequences and results. A very good example of this is his date Sally who is roughly around the same age as him and thinks things through and is aware of the consequences.
The black man is a symbol of Satan in this book, he is brought up by Hester. Hester thinks that the scarlet "A" is the black mans mark. She notices this on Dimmesdale's chest, he symbolically is always touching his hand to his chest right where the letter is branded onto his skin. By bringing satan into the story he brings up a point if humans are born evil. The black man likes to hang out in the woods leaving him to be even more judged as satan because the forest is unknown and evil.
No sane father would want to hit his children and wife, but when threatened with damnation and poisoned with anecdotes of God’s might, Eugene is moved to do anything he can to keep his family “safe”. He is horrified and hurt when his children disobey him, as though they were “sinning” for the sole purpose of angering him. Kambili recalls when her father punished her and her brother, Jaja, for a minor “sin” they committed: “‘Kambili you are precious.’ His voice quavered now [...] ‘You should strive for perfection. You should not see sin and walk right into it.’ [...] He poured the hot water onto my feet [...] He was crying now, tears streaming down his face. [...] I wanted to say ‘Yes, Papa’, because he was right, but the burning on my feet was climbing up, in swift courses of excruciating pain” (Adichie 194-5).
When they come across the road rat the man refers to his son as ‘him’; ‘if you look at him again I’ll shoot you’. We can assume that since the post apocalyptic situation occurred names are not important as they use to be, McCarthy wanted to express how in this type of world you lose your identity. The mother of the boy is mentioned in the book but doesn’t have a specific name as well, we can argue that McCarthy did so to show that she is not worthy of a name. This gives the reader a reason to have sympathy for the man and the boy when we find out about her death. The reference of the ‘bad guys’ and the ‘good guys’ are very important to the novel.
It also shows how much he wanted a “father form heaven”: someone he could rely on to earn for his family and support him. Frank thinks his dead brothers won’t ever have to deal with such worries and not getting what they want. He realizes that death may have not been such a bad thing for Eugene but a way of escaping all of life’s hardships for a much more heavenly place. He even seems to be a bit jealous! This suggests that he thought death was better than life at one point.

Thomas Thompson 8/25/12 AP English IV G/T Schmidt “Salvation” Essay In Langston Hughes’s “Salvation,” he describes himself being “saved from sin… But not really saved.” He was young, and he wanted to please the adults he respected, so he pretended to be saved. In reality, though, the adults he looked up to were the ones responsible for his loss of faith, and unwillingness to be saved. Hughes’s Aunt Reed told him that, “when you were saved you saw a light… you could see and hear and feel Jesus in your soul,” but that was not what he experienced. He had heard others describe “being saved” like that as well, so he assumed Jesus was not coming. He had been fed information about what to perceive in an intensely personal situation, but he wasn’t feeling it.
Everette, and the viewers, think that his life will get better when the flood is over, that he will believe in God, leave the con life and his wife Penny will come back to him. Everette ends up saying that there has to be a scientific explanation for the flood, he stays a con man, and his wife Penny doesn’t want him because he doesn’t get her the ring she wants. This is another example of how life gets worse or stays as bad when we think it will change for the

4 Mar. 2014 Chimney Sweeper Chimney Sweeper by William Blake entails about a poem which identifies young boys as socially oppressed chimney sweepers in the dark background of child labor. In the story, the boys are very young and are being sold to people to clean chimneys with no say about the fact that they are just childhood ages being put to work in a dangerous environment which seemed to be government controlled at the time. The ideology behind that is, that the reason the kids were put to work was because they are small and can clean places unreachable to adults and the poem sets a good example of how it was in England in the 18th and 19th century. Marxism to me is basically anti communist thinking, pro religion and also the fact that everything should be shared equally and I believe it shows a good example in the poem when one of the young boys named Tom Dacre had said "And by came an Angel who had a bright key, and opened the coffins and set them all free" (1382).
