Ferenczi and it also helps me learn about Tommy.Tommy seems to have traits that go well with Ms.Ferenczis traits. Tommy is perceptive and notices many minor details that some people may not notice. Ms. Ferenczi has a very interesting personality which goes well with Tommy’s keen instincts. Using his instincts, Tommy is able to enjoy the interesting stories and facts that Ms. Ferenczi tries telling the students in the class. “‘I don’t like that word either,’” Ms. Ferenczi whispered…” ( p.50 L. 245), this shows that Tommy has similar traits to Ms. Ferenczi. We also notice that over time he seems to be doing weird things over the course of Ms. Ferenczi’s substituting. On page 57, he lied to Carl Whiteside just to defend Ms. Ferenczi. On page 58, Tommy eagerly explained every single little detail about Ms. Ferenczi interesting facts to his mom. Then, on page 69, he went as for as punching Wayne just because he was the reason of Ms. Ferenczi’s departure. This pattern of unusual behavior revealed Tommy’s need for Ms. Ferenczi. At first she was a mysterious and weird stranger, and the next thing you know it, she becomes Tommy’s
Before the story is too far, there is already signs of Tom’s supercilious manner when Nick first meets up with him. Nick describes Tom like he “established dominance over his face and gave him the appearance of always leaning aggressively forward…”(11). This is the first of many signs that show Tom’s supercilious manner and how he acts like he is better than anyone else. After a short time, Tom shows another sign of irreverence. Nick describes Tom’s treatment of others when he states, “After an infinitesimal hesitation, he included Daisy”(18).
These lines show that Tom’s life is luxurious, while Chamber’s life is the complete opposite. Although Tom gets more, it is almost damaging to him because he grows up extremely self-centered. Tom’s poor character is visible when he treats Chambers unfairly. Tom, "staked him with marbles to play “keeps” with, and then took all the winnings away from him" (27). This is just one of the cruel things Tom does to Chambers.
Tom is an immoral character. He is very unlikeable because of his uncivilized attitude. He is a very arrogant, dominating and boorish man who doesn’t cares about anyone focusing only on what he wants and looks down on poor, helpless people. Not only this, but he is also racist and a complete hypocrite.
(146) In order to emphasize his humility and goodness, Tom has been cast as a ?one-arm jackleg? (as he so eloquently puts it). He is a carpenter, ably fixing up the Crater property. He performs the miracles of reviving Mrs. Crater?s long-dead Ford (the religious connection reinforced by O?Connor?s characterization of his expression ?as if he had just raised the dead? ) and teaching deaf and mute daughter Lucynell to say the word ?bird?. He eschews modern man?s obsession with money and claims that he has a ?moral intelligence? despite his physical shortcomings. By emphasizing his focus on the spiritual nature of life, Tom succeeds in marrying the daughter and receiving money from Mrs. Crater.
This part of the story also makes a connection between Tommy and Plinio which that is that they both felt as if there dignity was humiliated in front of Mavis and they tried to out do each other but it all got out of hand causing them both to loose all of the respect that they had. For example Tommy's friends all left and Mavis was bewildered at Plinio.
Both sides to Tim are bad in both ways. Finally, when Mr. Meeker did not allow Sam to take the Brown Bess to fight with, Sam stole the gun. Sam disobeyed his father and Tim tries to take it back. Tim kept on trying to persuade Sam to give the gun back to Mr. Meeker, but he keeps ignoring Tim’s request. When Tim tries to steal the gun from Sam, Sam immediately found out and chased after Tim. When Sam caught up to Tim, Tim started to blackmail and said that he would shoot the gun at Sam if he got closer. “Don’t come any closer, Sam, or I’ll shoot you” (Collier and Collier 55). This shows that even war can tear the two brothers that love each other apart. Families can still be teared apart from any type of war.
The way that Nick describes Tom expresses his dislike for him. He sees him as too arrogant and cruel. In chapter one, its is said that “there were men at New Haven that hated his guts.” (page 7).
Tommy and his twin sister Tammy Jean were born in Oakland,California on June 28,1964.His mom Nina Sells was a single mother with three other children when the twins were born.They moved to St. Louis,Missouri and at 18 months old,sells and tammy jean contracted spinal meningitis, which was fatal to tammy.After he got better sells was sent to live with his aunt Bonnie Walpole in Holcomb,Missouri.He stayed there until he was five when his mom went back to take him when she found out that his aunt was thinking about adopting him.Through his childhood he was left alone to fend for himself.He barely went to school and by the time he was seven he was drinking alcohol.Around the same time he started hanging around this old man.The man showed him a
One day, he and his father were travelling back from Verplanks Point, a trading site, Tim’s father is kidnapped by Patriot cowboys, but Tim escapes and is stick to the trail and walk home; when he arrives, he is forced to take up chores previously done by Mr. Meeker. Even against his religion, Tim is compelled to keep the tavern open on Sundays for any possible revenue because of the family’s financial troubles to a decrease in money coming through the pub and an increase in rebel debts—that can only be paid if the Patriots won the war. Learning of her husband’s death on a prison ship, Mrs. Meeker claims that war “turns men into animals” , something she often repeats; after the news, Tim also losses all empathy and feeling toward both armies of the miserable war. Tables turn in the winter of 1778 when a regiment led by General Putnam, Sam’s
He left his tradition of hunting buffalos his son felt the same way. “Its hard you know without the buffalo the shaman the arrow.” (39) This shows how the father and his son they both feel the same way and how much they both miss everything about it and how it could never be the same without
Fathers are important role models who raise and nurture their children with love. A good father is a man who protects and provides for his children, who disciplines them, and who tries to bring them up to know the difference between good and bad. Although Atticus allows his children freedom to play and explore everyday, according to To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, he still is caring, smart, and a firm disciplinarian which makes him an ideal father for his kids. All those qualities that were stated makes Atticus a perfect father for both Scout and Jem.
The storyteller is able to keep his or her memories fresh and alive through the act of telling stories. At the age of forty-three, Tim O’Brien is still able to remember his childhood friend, Linda, who died when he was nine. “Even now I can see her walking down the aisle of the old State Theater in Worthington, Minnesota. I can see her face in profile beside me, the cheeks softly lighted by coming attractions.” Linda is given the gift of life through death by the power of the story. She not only lives in the mind of Tim O’Brien, but now Linda can live in the mind of anyone of whom he tells the story to. O’Brien’s audience is even graced with the pleasure of imagining what Linda looked like, “There were little crinkles at her eyes, her lips open and gently curving at the corners.” The audience can nearly see Linda, nine years old, standing in a childlike manner before
The Differences Today I will be writing on two stories, “The Boar Hunt” and “Delicious Death”. I will be talking about the similarities and differences of these two stories. The common theme of friends in both stories, the time period of both stories, and the last one will be, the difficultly of the hunt. The first thing I am going to talk about is a similar theme, which appears in both stories, Friends.
