In contrast, Oates begins her version of the tale midway through the relationship. Anna does not seem to have such a negative perspective of men, rather she is just distrustful. Anna’s thoughts of me are “What did it mean to enter into a bond with another person?” (221) “No she did not really trust him; she did not really trust men” (221). From the beginning of each of the stories, both Anna and Dmitry’s distinctively different points of view of members of the opposite sex are apparent. However, through the life of the affair each of their perspectives of the opposite sex softens.
Holden was bored and wide awake in his hotel room in New York. Holden decided to go to the bar and hang out but in the elevator the worker offers him a prostitute, Holden decided that he should so he talked his way into something he did not really want. Even today these two things that Holden got into are unacceptable, a minor smoking and buying a prostitute. The reader knows that The Catcher in the Rye is for a younger but mature audience because of how Holden acts throughout this book. The reason for this thesis is because of how he acts and the decisions or situations could be taken the wrong way
Being rather isolated, Holden Caulfield struggles even more than most with the challenges involved with relationships as he fails to balance his desire for isolation with his desire for companionship. Although Holden constantly searches for new possible relationships, he always ends up spoiling any chance he has with one. This is shown primarily by his interactions with both Sally Hayes and Jane Gallagher. The reader first becomes aware of Holden Caulfield’s difficulties with relationships when Holden discovers his roommate, Stradlater, has a date with Jane Gallagher whom Holden used to play checkers with. Holden becomes immediately jealous and says “Jane Gallagher.
Holden’s character appears to be: sordid, emotionally deep, and compassionate but his emotions interfere and are revealed. When Holden hears Sunny’s “tiny little wheeny-whiny voice”, he notices that it was even harder to hear her because “she was very nervous, for a prostitute” (Salinger pg. 94). Sunny’s pronounced personality traits immediately impact Holden; her neurotic behavior gave Holden an insecure impression and her childish voice made her appear immature, which made Holden think of her youth, making him feel immoral. Holden once again notices Sunny’s humane nature when she says, “ like fun you are”, instead of saying a more bitter response (Salinger pg.94).
He is in the elevator going back up to his room when in the elevator with him, a man asks if he wants to have a little fun and offers him a prostitute. At first he is very excited at the thought of having a prostitute. Things change when she finally arrives in his room and right away, he gets a feeling of sadness. “The trouble was, I just didn’t want to do it. I felt more depressed than sexy, if you want to know the truth.” (125).
He meets this pretty woman who is the mother of Ernie whom Holden thinks he is a bastard. While they were talking, Holden asks her, “Would you care for a cocktail?” (P57). She merely says “yes” that she thinks Holden is underage, thus, she refused. But she smokes which was an unusual thing to do nowadays. Furthermore, New York has prostitutes who would like to satisfy their body and involve in sex trade.
His first notable fall is when he hires a prostitute named Sunny because he feels depressed and thinks maybe having sexual intercourse with a prostitute will lift his spirits after being rejected by a group of girls and also make him more of an adult. In this case, Holden isn’t much better than his roommate, Stradlater, when he went on a date with Jane. When Holden is waiting for Sunny to show up, he says, “Finally, somebody knocked on the door, and when I went to open it, I had my suitcase right in the way and I fell over it and damn near broke my knee” (93). Holden is about to have sex for the first time and lose his virginity, and the fall indicates the loss of innocence that is about to occur in his life. Holden ends up being too afraid to do anything because Holden says, “she was young as hell” (94).
In the man and the woman, the woman named Harper was having doubts about her partner’s sexual identity. Thus they are having problems. In the other relationship, one of the partner is not sure if he still loves him, thus it creates a tension between them. In Reasons to be pretty can one word really escalate to a full out argument? Either case this make the scene very dramatic.
For example, in this story there is an event that takes place where McMurphy, a man who is accused to be insane, sneaks two sane women into the insane institution. This alone in reality can’t happen due to the very watchful night nurses who come and check on the patients repeatedly during the night, these nurses were in the non-fiction story. With that being said it is quite impossible for a man to sneak in two women. This event in the story is what can make the book more unbelievable and harder for the truth to actually come out or for anyone to really understand the
Review for The play called Rent When approaching the stage I was honestly a bit nervous about what I was about to see, I almost didn't walk in, but I figured if it was as bad as 'Elliott loves" I would walk out. When the first scene started I thought to myself of course they would have yet another gay scene and I was shocked as to how far they took it. The interaction between the two of them was disturbing to say the least; there were two men, one of them was a prostitute and he was planning to steal from the other guy that looked wealthy in his eyes. The other man that looked wealthy turned out to be the pimp, and this new guy on the block didn't know the protocol and who was in charge. The pimp realized that he was inexperienced and planned
