Whenever someone treats him cruelly he responds by assuming that their actions are caused by lack of knowledge or mistake. Charlie's increasing intellectual capacity forces him to adopt a far more cynical look on those around him. This cynical outlook not only drains his trust to a healthy level but turns into an almost paranoid condition. The more subtle change in which the coldness appears is that he becomes condemning of lesser intelligent people, dismissing professors as shams with very narrow fields of knowledge. This development in Charlie's personality is ironic since his ambition in the beginning of the story is to get enough mental prowess to be included in the same community that he distances himself from when he criticizes the average human as being limited and slow.
These include; those who purposely refrain from outer society and those who are prejudiced by others, this is mostly due to their physical appearance. An outsider – a person who is seen as a threat to normality or isn’t perceived as the ‘norm’ and is therefore shunned into being a minority by a majority, not belonging to a particular group of people; in Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ for the creature’s case this would be the whole of society as he is seen as the “ultimate outsider” and he is subject to many of society’s demons. For instance, prejudice. This is one of the most significant reasons for most of the outsiders within Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ and Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’. The creature is rejected from society starting from his creation because of how different he looks to the rest; Shelley uses “abhorred” to describe the creature and throughout the novel this reinforces the fact of how despised he is by others.
This is very much like our own world where people are being judged by their appearance, or maybe a disability that they have, and are unable to participate or socialize with others. The conflict between these two are the fact that the 'normal' people feel as if these 'mutants' need to be caught, and need to be gotten rid of. The whole idea of human deviations, mutants and blasphemies is all created by the majority of "norms" at the end of their tribulation. However, not all the characters in Waknuk believe that these deviations should be killed or isolated. Some of these people, like David, had accepted Sophie because of her difference.
He is cast out and neglected by society because he does not meet its ideal of beauty and this criticises the way we, as humans, judge character based on one’s appearance. It is assumed that the creature is a ‘monster’ based solely upon his appearance, which is why Victor hides from it after it first comes to life. Frankenstein’s monster describes the ‘treatment suffered from the barbarous villagers’. This is Shelley commenting on the creature’s rejection from society and criticising how people are too quick to judge a person’s character based on their appearance rather than their personality. The villagers are described as ‘barbarous’ which could show how they are in fact the monsters, as opposed to Frankenstein’s creature.
Grendel is seen as being ferocious and a high threat to Hrothgar. This blood hungry beast is an unsympathetic monster according to the humans and is living evil. The poems views Grendel as being ambiguous about his nature. The novel however, views Grendel as being significantly different from how he was in the poem. Grendel is still thought as being non human, but rather than being monstrous like in Beowulf, he is expressed as being a confused creature.
Meursault and Holden aren't the greatest with other people. Which is why I want to argue why alienating themselves causes problems when it comes to socializing with other people. Holden has trouble seeing what other people see. He views life completely
Their only opportunity to understand one another is by unintentionally crashing into one another. The movie Crash is a great showcase of the stereotype and prejudice seen in everyday life. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, a stereotype is defined as “any theory or doctrine indicating that action of an individual reflects on his or her whole culture, sex, age, race, class, or nationality ("Stereotype," 2010). Stereotyping takes away the identity of an individual and replaces it with generalized characteristics that are usually negative and demeaning. Stereotyping and prejudice is the result of hate that comes from jealousy, misunderstanding, and ignorance but most importantly it is the result of emotions based on negative experiences.
This is important to the novel because we later learn that Miss. Dubose is in fact ill and there is a reason for her ill mannered behaviour. This shows the theme since Atticus acted in a hero like fashion rather than the way most of society would have acted. A similar case happens when Bob Ewel spits on Atticus and to that Atticus responds with “”. This also shows how Atticus simply can not see the dark in people.
Huy Nguyen (Lee) Humanities 11 Mr. Stremming Essay #3: Hateful Words We usually ignore a person who uses hateful words, and we all know that those words can really hurt a person. A recent grassroots movement tried but failed to have the word “nigger” removed from dictionaries. When those hurtful words are directed at us, they can cause just as much as a slap or a punch. When they are being used, they diminish not only the humanity of those who they are aimed at, but also the individual or group that uses them. In this essay, I will discuss about the hateful words, why they still survive though most of us do not want to use them, and in addition, I will give some examples of them.
Shelley presents a situation where society is ignorant about the unfamiliar, different, and is also unwilling to accept and embrace the unusual. Shelley portrays the rejection of the creature by his creator, the society¬’s reaction to the wretch, and the way in which they cannot see beyond superficial. Shelley shows that by having knowledge, Walton is able to see beyond the physical appearance and ultimately better accept the monster for what he really is. The relationship
