The events in Johns life that interrelate to effect his further development is that he has been made redundant and has taken up smoking and heavy drinking. This will physically effect his development as the constant drinking and smoking will go onto harm his organs and can lead to liver damage, lung cancer, yellow teeth’s or failure of the organ itself. As he has consumed alcohol, it will slow him down thus making his reaction to things slower than usual. His intellect will be affected as the intoxication will affect his judgement and John will be unable to make formed decisions as he wouldn’t be able to take things seriously. His perception and views on things around him will be altered as he is unable to think straight.
He is having a rough day, and needs a way of escaping from the reality of his adversity. For me, a way of escaping a rough day is to get lost in a movie, where the adversity is of the characters, and none of yours to worry about. Unfortunately, drinking to escape the adversity in reality really just creates more adversity for oneself. We see this in counterparts when Farrington arrives home. On top of all the adversity Farrington has gone through during the day the alcohol brings out rage in Farrington to the point of beating his own son which simplifies down to more adversity in Farrington’s life.
Junior believes it has to do with depression, when he says, “I suppose he is depressed” and “I suppose the whole family is depressed” (40). He realizes that when he says, “we all look for ways to make the pain go away” (107). Some people that suffer from depression lock themselves in either the basement or “run away to get drunk” (150), like his sister and father. According to Junior everyone is depressed in the Rez, that is the reason why so many Indians become alcoholics, to flush away their pain. Junior's father “drinks his pain away” (107).
It was very obvious that Holden was feeling lonely throughout the book and even with all the people around him, he just felt like nothing was worth living because the one thing he loved was gone. It hurt so badly that Holden considered the possibility of suicide, but even that made him even more depressed. As stated in the book “What I really felt like, though, was committing suicide. I felt like jumping out the window. I probably would’ve done it, too, if I’d been sure somebody’d cover me up as soon as I landed” (Salinger 104).
Many people were drinking all over from adesence to elders. People took it out of control and started taking abuse on it and made serious problems like corruption, child abuse, crime, unemployment, and worker safety. Men weren’t able to provide for there family. This was around the time when divorce wasn’t around and women couldn’t leave the men because of their ADDICTION. On there job, it would be slow down because they were to drunk to be able to put the right parts on the car.
What might be the cause for the lack of emotional control or perception? President Nixon, A very complicated man. He had a terrible temper and kept his emotion bottled up it led to terrible outbursts. Thus he looked comical to some and downright fearful to others. He has had the inability to trust anyone.
He let go of a girl he used to like, got in a fight with his roommate, and got kicked out of yet another school. Either this or the fact that Holden can’t really connect with anybody would make him feel like this. He feels although he’s living amongst “phony” people and can’t really talk to anyone. He feels very depressed while at Pency because of his inability to connect with anyone there, or because he’s being kicked out and will miss it. Holden decides to stay at a hotel instead where he can relax and not have to deal with anyone at Percy anymore.
Hale. John Wright doesn’t seem to be a happy fellow. Not much is said about this character, however; an overwhelming feeling of hatred and meanness radiates from him. Its as if he stiffens the very air he stood in. this very discontent feeling would further add to the very isolation the Glaspell is trying to portray.
Therefore, this is when Jekyll begins to shut out Utterson along with everyone else and still does for a significant amount of time. During his isolation, Jekyll begins to realize he no longer has control of Hyde when he goes to bed himself and wakes up as Hyde. It’s not as easy as he thought to be rid of Hyde.At this point of the story, Jekyll’s addiction has gone too far and it is too late for him to try and regain control when Hyde murders again. This process is the same for an addict; they continually abuse until a significant negative event occurs and try to recover, though it is very difficult. Jekyll’s isolation continues for weeks as he doesn’t leave home and no one visits him.
