Whilst everyone else on the ranch, and America at the time, is struggling due to the Depression Curley seems careless, wreckless, continues to pick fights and make people feel even worse. It's almost as if he's completely outside of the Economic Struggle, which in fact suggests that Curley's a lonely character, and when in contrast with all the other characters his cruelty is emphasised. Due to this Economic Struggle having getting a job was extremely difficult, to have one and be wealthy was classed as the 'American
Grant is a middle aged black man who knows of all the racism in his community and he let's it's affect him by hating his life and almost everything in it. Grant is forced to visit Jefferson from his aunt and Emma. When Grant begins to visit Jefferson things don't go so well. After a certain visit Grant realizes that he wasn't so angry anymore and he couldn't stay mad at anything for long (Gaines 125). Also, Grant used to be a very hostile man and he didn't care for anything but from visiting Jefferson he started to care about his life and the things in it, he dedicated his whole self to helping Jefferson become a man and he would get into arguments defending his choices with his aunt even if she was very important to him and they never fought.

This includes his description of his job as a school teacher (paragraph one), the big mystery he encounters as he travels overseas (paragraph two), and the life-altering change he goes through after killing hundreds of men. The boring parallelism used when talking about his job describes that he just has a normal life and that it drags on like your average, American worker. But in reality, it’s anything but ordinary. Once he comes overseas, it’s a completely different story. In paragraph two, when Hanks talks about the change that he goes through and wondering if his wife will even recognize him, he uses a much more depressed state of parallelism.
My question to this was there a problem in Bartleby’s life? The narrator shows how Bartleby starts to just drift away, he starts off being a very excellent working to just not doing anything. He even begins to just stare at the wall. He is just there not wantingto do anything but just be there. My thought on this is that the lawyer is feeling sorry for Bartleby.
Frethorne’s time as a servant was so brutal that he believed he would have been better off living life as a crippled beggar in his hometown of England rather than being a servant in the New World (Lauter 289). From Frethorne’s letters you can deeply feel the true pain and suffering he went through on a daily basis and you learn how much he begged and wished for his family to help him be back with them again in England. Simply, Frethorne’s experience as an indentured servant in the New World was unpleasant. His life during this time was rough due to elements, including: scarcity of food, weakness of the body, and loss of hope for a better life. During this time in the New World the demand for food was incredibly high, and only the wealthy were the ones lucky enough to get a real meal each day (Kupperman).
His job was to be a farmer, and as he became richer he was occupied with things that would distract him from this. His soul purpose in life was to work the fields and as he became more enslaved he was dragged away from doing what he was born to do. This set a bad example for Wang Lung’s children, and it made his father disappointed in him. Wang Lung regularly visited the temple ofthe gods, and this stopped after he came upon money. Praying before the gods was something he loved to do and this activity came to a stop.
Phil himself was “overweight” and unhealthy, obsessed with work and negligent with his personal life. Goodman condemns the lifestyle that Phil leads by proving negative and poignant illustrations. Phil attempts to be the best and most important worker to his company. Phil has made his family non-existent in his life because of his over-working habits. They are no longer the important aspect of his life as all focus shifts to himself to become important to others who seemingly don’t care about him.
Pilgrim has a hard time adjusting after he gets home from the war. He marries for comfort and security, with no true feelings of love. He follows in his father-in-laws footsteps as an optometrist because the road to success in that field was paved with ease for him. His father-in-law put in most of the effort for him to be successful. Billy Pilgrim is traumatized, stressed and seems to be a very pathetic individual.
Crooks feels hope for a moment thinking his life can become better even if his only friends are George, Lennie and Candy. He has no even been invited to live with them and Crooks is already willing to work like a slave as long as he has someone. Crooks is obviously a victim of the loneliness that invades the ranch but most important is the misfortunate consequences of
