Self created or felt from another persons doing, this separation of ones being must be dealt with. Life comes with its misfortunes.

These texts suggest that it is often after experiencing different barriers in life that an individual can come to value and seek a true sense of belonging. Billy in “the simple gift” is the leading character, whose father is violent, careless and an alcoholic and has an absent mother, was never given the acceptance and love of how it felt to belong to someone. Instead using vulgar language was his way to describe how he felt; “...deadbeat no-hoper/shithole lonely downtrodden house/in Longlands Rd, Nowheresville”.

Cather uses symbols of color in her story to build the character Paul in her short story, “Paul's Case.” When explaining Paul’s feelings toward where he lives, “he approached it tonight with the nerveless sense of defeat, the hopeless feeling of sinking back forever into ugliness and commonness that he had always had when he came home” (168). Vainness is another feature that portrayed to make the audience feel as if he were one’s own son and deserved a beating; “Paul entered the faculty room suave and smiling” (164), shows a boy often having no respect for his elders. Cather portrays Paul’s character as a daydreamer who lives in a fantasy world and cannot come to terms with reality. He wanted to live the life of the rich and famous, “he reflected upon the mysterious dishes that were brought into the dining-room, the green bottles in buckets of ice, as he had seen them in the supper party pictures of the Sunday supplement”
In Robert Frost’s poem, the imagery brings about a sad and depressing mood. In the line, “I have looked down the saddest city lane.” You can observe that the character is taking in his surroundings, which prove to be gloomy and depressing. It almost shows that he has a very negative outlook on life, like he’s stuck in a state of depression. On the other hand, in Dickinson’s poem the imagery brings about a state of confusion almost as if the narrator is lost in the darkness. This can be seen in “The Bravest – grope a little – And sometimes hit a Tree Directly in the Forehead – But as they learn to see –” This line shows that the narrator is lost in the night and doesn’t know where to go, due to the inability to see anything in the dark.
