The old bear roared in frustration and waved at the empty air with his huge paws, then reared up on his hind legs. he was so tall that his nose nearly touched the edge of the loft. (2)
Character vs. Self
¨Ítś too much´, Lyddie protested...´Iĺl pay you back the money -with interest when i can,´Lyddie promised.¨(46)
Should i accept it???
Character vs. Society
Am I a slave at the tavern?
¨´I was my own schoolmaster´he said. ´At first I only wanted to read the Bible so I could preach to my people. But´-he smiled again, showing his lovely, even teeth- ´a little reading is an exceedingly dangerous thing.´...´Especially the Bible´...´It gave me notions.´¨(41)
The bear is considered part of nature, and Lyddie is trying to protect her family from the bear.
Lyddie doesn't like asking for help because she feels like she has to pay them back. This shows that she is struggling with herself, always worried that people will want to get payed back after helping her.
This shows that the society thinks that Ezekial reading the Bible is very dangerous because he can learn about how the way he is being treated is wrong.
