According to Freudian’s theory he displays signs of a core issue referred to as Fear of Intimacy. This issue leads a person to become detached because they have “overpowering feelings that emotional closeness will seriously hurt or destroy them” (Freudian). For example, he does not have any relationships outside of his family, and even when he is at home he remains guarded. Home is where people get comfortable and let their real selves shine. However, Gregor continues “locking the doors at night, even at home” (Kafka 9).
Tyler Perry was living in his van with no money, and nowhere to go. Some how he got the strength to make something of himself. And he did. He is one of the world’s best producers, writer, and actor. He started making plays about an average person’s life and the struggles they face.
Bartleby was basically hired for copying the text but eventually he started refusing the work requested by the lawyer. The story reflects the mental and physical breakdown of the character Bartleby through the eyes of other people. Even as the story progresses and different people come into contact with Bartleby, he remains unchanged. The narrator repeatedly states that “Bartleby did nothing but stand at his window in his dead-wall revery” (Melville 607). This is yet another way that Bartleby’s static character, along with his flat nature, is shown.

"The Pedestrian" is a short story by Ray Bradbury, an author known for deeply philosophical and poetic prose that is often set in a time of space travel. Occurring in the year 2053, "The Pedestrian" tells the story of Leonard Mead, a man who walks alone at night, seemingly for the pure joy of it. This appears to upset the neighbors, who, when they are not criticizing the habits of others, are thoroughly engrossed in their televisions.In 2053, people do not walk outside -- even the sidewalks are succumbing to the endless growth of grass. At some point during his walk, Leonard Mead is accosted by the one remaining police car in the city of three million (there is apparently no need for a police force when no one goes outside and they are instead
But to Amir that is all it was, a ‘house’. Not a ‘home’ where Amie could tell us about all the fun times he spent their, it wasn’t a child’s place but it was a museum, a museum of Baba’s belongings. It was a very adult house, littered with beautiful things not really a fun place for children to grow up and play in. This description at the start of the book shows the contrast between Hassan and Amir, as Amir lived in the ‘‘estate’’ whereas Hassan lived in a ‘‘hut at the bottom of the garden’’ even though they were actually brothers. Amir is the one describing the house to us, he admits it is a beautiful place but he doesn’t seem to care much, and not much emotion is shown, its almost as if he seems detached from the house, like an outsider.

Chris appears as if he doesnt’ care all too much about what happens to him in life. This is somewhat emphasized as he takes on a job of a door-to-door salesman; a job in real life that is generally deemed as unsuccessful, he arrives many times over at his home-stay family to show them his products, while being poor at both demonstration and persuasion. Chris lives on passively as he lies under the stars, thinking of the universe in all it’s glory. Chris lives in a crummy home. Maybe crummy is based on ones own opinions and other matters; but generally, he lives in a crummy home.
Rip was a lazy man who helped others but never did his own work. He is described as a man who "was ready to attend to any body's business but his own; but as to doing family duty, and keeping his farm in order, it was impossible" (Irving 938). Van Winkle had a staunch wife whom he dreaded and two unkempt children. His farm was slowly wasting away and his dog Wolf was his only "domestic adherent". Rip would go to the town's inn and sit with his friends and discuss past issues in old newspapers.
