A large portion of Holden’s depression comes from failing multiple times. He has flunked almost every class he has taken except English.

While his time there, Wind-Wolf’s teacher labeled him as a “slow-learner” because he did not know the things an average kindergartener knew.

He was constantly teased for having long hair and he begged his mom to cut it off. She tried to convince him that in the Indian culture, long hair is a sign for masculinity and balance but Wind-Wolf was too hard-headed to understand.

In the novel, Finney repeatedly refuses to listen to the facts of Gene breaking Finney’s leg because he “do[esn’t] care,” (Knowles 151). Because Finney wouldn’t listen, he ran out and ends up breaking his own leg, and since he is reluctant to face reality, he gets sent to the hospital. Likewise, during the movie, even when Neil is not allowed to participate in the play, because of his strong passion for acting he still goes on with his part, though it upsets his father deeply (Dead Poets’ Society). Because Neil acts in the play, it causes his father to be infuriated with him, and Finney’s father decides to ship him off to another school. Both examples show how each of the boys are opposed to face their own realities, and because of this they end up hurting themselves.
