People are obsessed with fitting in the social mainstream that they become afraid of change and are challenged by genuine emotion. The weeping man doesn’t want or need anything from his society. “The weeping man, like the earth requires nothing”. However although the society is isolated from the weeping man, the onlookers get a choice. The facelessness of modern society means there is less fear of judgement and the consequences of judgement, than in the society such as Salem in the Crucible.
They don’t care about what people think of them. When you hate yourself, whatever people say it doesn’t make sense. ‘Why do they like me? Why do they care about me?’ Because you don’t care about yourself at all.” Whether Edwards realized it or not, he never tried to hide his depression from the public as shown in the above statement, often using his music to express himself. Culture, alienation, boredom, and despair were themes that remained constant in Edward’s music; although one could argue that his lyrics were the subtle signs.
However, he was still able to go through his life like that. The quote doesn't apply to All Quiet on the Western Front because Paul Baumer and his friends trusted the officials and this ended up leading to the death of all of them. "... It is impossible to go through life without trust..." This quote does not apply to The Catcher in the Rye because Holden Caulfield, the main character believes everyone is phony and doesn't trust anyone which is a major flaw. Holden’s major flaw affects his life
The little evidence they had was circumstantial and was hard to believe. However, authorities along with the people did not see any issues with prosecuting fellow members of the society based on this improbable evidence. Their preconceived notions as well as the mass hysteria blinded and clouded their sound judgment leading them to make bad decisions that did not only affect them, but ruined other’s lives forever. In conclusion, Miller’s personal opinions about the McCarthy trials greatly influenced his writing of the Crucible. He saw an undeniable connection between them, two instances where in his opinion pre conceived notions of higher authorities ruined the lives of many people.
The men who view him this way are totally different from each other. For example, George plays the role of the family member to Lennie, which at times makes him act cruel towards Lennie. At first, Crooks views Lennie as just another one of the workers who treats him badly then later realizes he is a nice and caring man. Curley on the other hand strongly dislikes big men and being that Lennie is a big guy, Curley never gives Lennie a chance to be friends. Lennie is viewed by s few characters in the novel and it affects their characterization.
This is obvious throughout the story because of his lack of connection with people, the stories he tells, and all the negative things he has to say about people. His negative personality definitely comes from his traumatizing experiences as a child, whatever they may be. Holden is an extremely mysterious person and its very clear because no one knows what is the truth and what is a lie when it comes out of his mouth. In the end, feeling bad for Holden is all thats left. It’s sad that he has lived his life so miserably but things might have been different if he acted more like the real Holden, was more truthful, and wasn’t so deceitful to everyone around
CROOKS Crooks, like Curley’s wife has no name. Crooks is merely a nick name and it appears that the novel does not mention the most inferior characters names. He appreciates Lennie’s company “I tell ya a guy gets too lonely, an’ he gets sick.” Crooks is happy to admit that he has no company and is isolated because of his colour, he also admits to have no dream as he is afraid of being disappointed. It seems lonely characters can talk to Lennie as he will not tell anyone. Crooks is used to being ignored and as a result of this he is very protective of his possessions “Ya got no right to come in my room!” The characters are rendered helpless by their isolation, and yet, even at their weakest, they seek to destroy those who are even weaker than
“No man has ever been born a negro hater, a Jew hater, or any other hater. Nature refuses to be involved in such suicidal practices.” People are born without any malicious thoughts towards others but instead the thoughts and opinions of others are later incorporated into that person’s new opinions, thoughts, and prejudices. This critical lens is valid because as shown in the general populace of youth, humans are generally accepting of all people until later on in their lives. This idea of learned hatred is evident or supported in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and in the drama Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. In To Kill a Mockingbird the characters express many types of prejudice.
Jack The Ripper Who doesn’t recognize Jack the Ripper as one of the most notorious killers of all time? He was never caught and was one of the first serial killers to prey on innocent citizens. I don’t believe that it was the fault of the police for not capturing Jack the Ripper for many reasons. Apart from the lack of technology which limited the police to witnesses there are many other significant reasons for never finding and stopping the Whitechapel murderer. Although there is overwhelming evidence to say that the police did their best there are still two sides to the argument.
It is being said that no one can be extremely introverts and also no one can be extremely extroverts, a person has a little of each, but more of one than the other and this basis the classification. Unfortunately for introverts we live in an extroverted word, the norms, practises and suggestions of the world is pointed to being extroverted. Introverts who make up 25 percent of the population and 65 percent of the gifted population are seen as strange or abnormal for many reasons such as they never have conversations or they are reserved and prefer being quiet. As a result of this, there are many tags, sayings or definitions people have for introverts, these are wrong,
