Henry & George
Henry Lamartine, from the ?Red Convertible? and George Orwell, author of ?Shooting an Elephant?, in many ways are a lot alike. They both share several of the same type of internal conflicts, that way them down, throughout their stories. Both Henry and George are undergoing identity crisis?s they are insecure with who they are because of themselves and because of outside external conflicts.
Henry Lamartine is a Native American, who grew up in the 60?s and 70?s. He struggles with everyday life, because he is of a different ethnic group then most of the people around him. He cannot seem to hold a steady job, and a lot of it is to do with his looks and his unlucky way of life. Everything seems extra hard for him; he has to work hard twice as much to achieve his goals then most people do, including his little brother Lyman, who at the age of 16 owned a restaurant. Which frustrated Henry because he saw how little effort Lyman had to but into things to get a good end result. Henry was shipped off to the Vietnam War, and was never the same once he came
