The fact that Charley kept asking him was a pure insult solely because of the superficial qualities of the job. He needed the money, but his shallow view of the American dream led him to believe that a carpenter, even with a steady income, wasn’t a respected or likeable job. This lack of money led to his despair, and was definitely a factor in the salesman’s death.
Human traits and characteristics like imagination, love, anger and revenge are projected by London into Buck’s character, a trait called anthropomorphosis, by using these human feelings and thoughts allowing the reader to better relate to Buck’s understanding and handling of certain situations. “At various points in the narrative, Buck is said to “imagine”, “decide”, “realize”, “know”, “divine”, “wonder”, and so on” (Auerbach 53). Further analysis of London’s narration by Auerbach of Buck is critical, claiming that while London is writing an animal tale, he is doing so more from a human perspective, rather than that of an animal. Unlike other animal tales written during the same time-period, London’s narration helps the story work as an animal story partly due to the way “Buck is put into a situation not in his control, then invested with a human mentality and morality to evaluate the situation, and then represented as reacting to that situation by way of “instinct”,”
Charley says something in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman that sums up Willy’s whole life. He asks him, "When the hell are you going to grow up” (Miller 97)? Willy spends his entire life in an illusion, seeing himself as a great man who is popular and successful. Willy exhibits many childlike qualities and his two sons Biff and Happy pattern their behavior after their father. Many of these qualities, such as idealism, stubbornness, and a false sense of self-importance in the world have a negative impact on Willy’s family,
An autobiography is coined as 'the history of a person 's life written or told by that person ' (Dictionarycom,2016). The author positions the reader to interpret his text as an autobiography and does so through the use of storytelling and vivid imagery, thus positioning the reader to reconsider or their beliefs towards aboriginals (Pryor, 2010). Pryor 's life started as a small boy from North-East Queensland, he then ventured into the career path as model which led to the
Personal narratives are often written when the author feels compelled to tell their story, usually they write them about a significant event. Going back to Columbus, the early explorers and settlers took to writing personal narratives to tell their story of what they found in the New World. The New World has a geography that is unique to each area. One thing all of the early explorers and settlers to the new world had in common was that they all had to deal with the Indians. In each area there are differnat tribes of Indians, it is for that reason the personal narratives written by the explorers and settellers are different from each other. The result of which meant that all of them had different experiences to write about in the
In contrast, Willy believes that as long as you have personality and a great appearance you can be successful. These two views make all the difference between them and their children. Charley is a successful salesman and his son is a successful lawyer. Willy on the other hand lives in a fantasy and is unsuccessful, with bad morals that have rubbed off on his two sons. These two different views make all the difference when it comes to surviving the world. Unrealistic beliefs usually lead to an unsuccessful life, and realistic beliefs usually lead to success. Charley highlights every flaw in Willy by highlighting his own positive aspects as well. Miller uses his unique war of molding these two characters in order to show the balance that opposition plays within the
Piracy has been around before the time of the pyramids. Once merchant ship began to deliver goods to other countries, others realized the financial gain that could be made by stealing those goods and selling them themselves. Pirates have ruled the seas at different times. Once Europeans settled in the American colonies, pirates plundered towns along the coast and attacked almost every ship they came in contact with. During the 18th century, wars gave rise to privateering; a legal form of piracy. But, after the War of 1812, this was no longer tolerated. Government put an end to most piracy but, today there are still pirates. By comparing the pirates
Charley Quinn is twelve years old the summer after his older brother, Johnny, is killed at Gettysburg. Charley can't wait for the opportunity to avenge Johnny's death by killing off some Rebel soldiers. Meanwhile, he works as an errand boy for his older sister, Noreen. He picks up supplies and hats for her sewing business and delivers them when Noreen is finished with them. Charley is a member of the street gang known as the Bowery Boys. Their arch rivals are the Dead Rabbits. As Charley is returning home one day with a hatbox, he encounters a member of the rival gang and gets into a fight. A police officer breaks it up and takes Charley home. Noreen is angry that he has ruined his good clothes and that he had been fighting. While Charley is changing, he hears Noreen talking with her fiancé. At the end of that conversation, Noreen agrees that if Charley can't stay out of trouble she'll send him to a school for incorrigible boys.
By the time the war ended he was not the same person as he was before the war started. Charley’s mom let him join the war because they saw advertisements about how great it was. He was also going to get paid eleven dollars a month which was a big deal for him and his family. Before the battles he thought it was boring doing the drills, but he did not know that it could end up so bad. Though his PTSD did not get to the point he had to go to an asylum, it is still something horrible to go through for a person. Charley risked his life to join the war, all just to see what all the excitement was
He served the whole war from 1861 to 1865 as an underage boy. Although he only got back from the war when he was nineteen, he came back a man. In the beginning of the war, Charley was ignorant and unprepared. On page 2, the author displays ideas of the townspeople of Winona, Minnesota regarding the Civil War; “The only shooting war to come in a man’s life and if a man didn’t step right along he’d miss the whole thing. Charley didn’t figure to miss it.” Before the war, Charley wanted to go for an adventure. He didn’t want to miss out on a shooting war, especially if it would be the only one in his life. Besides, his mother was always telling him to become a man, so isn’t this a perfect opportunity to step up to the plate? Charley was not thinking for only a second about what a shooting war actually was, nevermind the effects of one. When Charley joined the Minnesota Volunteer Regiment, he was in for a big surprise. Before the first battle of Bull Run, Charley and the other privates trained. “Charley doubted there would ever be a battle” (11). He even received a warning. Charley’s mother sent a letter to him asking him to come home. He dismissed her idea and moved along until they reached Manassas. Charley was having a grand old time until he got onto the battlefield. Charley found himself screaming “Make it all stop now!” (21) when he saw the effects of the shooting war.
Willy probably might have felt guilty about borrowing money from Charley each week just to show his wife that he is making plenty of money. He was unsatisfied with his earning and lied to his wife by bringing home extra cash from his neighbor. By borrowing money and not earning enough from his job, certainly causes him to suffer.
