Nobody would be an exception, not even the announcers. “The announcer, like all announcers, had a serious speech impediment” (Vonnegut 136). Nobody could ever have proper education because of the lowered thinking. If a buzzer would go off every time they tried to think, then they would not be able to do anything right, even simple things such as reading. If people tired to go against the government, they would be punished, and possibly killed.
In the book Grendel, by John Gardner, Grendel is portrayed as a lonely character that is misunderstood, and is disliked by everyone. During the course of the story, Grendel meets many people whom change the course of his destiny. Three characters that have impacted Grendel the most are the Dragon, the Shaper, and Beowulf, each playing a role in either inspiring or destroying him. First off, the dragon has one of the biggest impacts on Grendel because he changes his perspective on life itself and also grants him stone skin which makes him impervious to all weapons. The Dragon talks a lot about space and time.
I thought I should have stepped to help out but pigs were given first priority to and had more power than anyone in the farm, thus I decided not to. As days passed, Napoleon and Snowball took over, and started to run the farm. Napoleon was quite different from the whole group of animals, personally I did not like him or trust ‘Animal Farm’ in his hands. Napoleon’s speeches were short and to the point, which many of us including me, who never followed what he said. Us, animals were blindfolded by him and never realized he took advantage of the lack of knowledge we had just for the his benefit now and later in the future as well.
Because she is so lonely she is always seeking attention and putting great effort into her looks. Her over-the top appearance portrays her desperation to be noticed. She is unable to make any connections with the men on the ranch, the only people she ever comes in contact with, because they see her as
His retardation sometimes causes others at the ranch to shun him; even to the point of thinking he is "cuckoo." Since Lennie cannot think as quickly as the other men, he is often set aside and isolated from them. He is unable to take an active part in conversations because George, Lennie's best friend and travelling companion, is the only one who can understand him. Lennie is frequently off in his own dream world and is constantly preoccupied with dreams of the farm which he and George someday hope to buy. .’ “An’ have rabbits.” ‘As a result, Lennie is unable to face reality at times, a fact which puts him even more out of touch with the real world and with other workers.
To escape the harshness of her real existence, Laura spends hours playing with the menagerie; it is an illusory world for her. But the glass menagerie is larger than just Laura's collection.

This is terrible and I don't know what to do! Should I leave the dwarves and find my own way out of the horrible and dangerous forest that has trees that are giants, or should I save the awful, smelly Dwarves? Why do I always have to save them or do things for them? They are unpleasant to me; they came, unannounced, to my house unexpected and ordered me around to serve them my food and my drinks, in my own house! On the other hand, Dori was the only one who tried to save me and stayed with me, until I was safe away from those Wargs, and he nearly got killed by the Wargs saving me.
They all do a lonely repetitive job everyday on the farm where they do not really have anyone they can really talk to, one of the ideas we get from the books is that if you are lonely you become mean and this seems to have happened to a lot of the characters in the book. The Town they live in is called ‘Soledad’ which means ‘loneliness’ this tell us that all the people living in it will probably be lonely and this turns out to be true. A lot of the characters are always by themselves and this is truer for some characters other others. Whenever George plays cards he always lays a hand for solitaire, which is a game played by one person and never for anything. This gives over to us that he has no one else to really play with, as Lennie is probably not clever enough to be able to play with him so he always has to play a game, which is for one.
Grendel is a monster who speaks a language very similar to that of the humans. He watches the humans from the shadows very often. He feels a certain attachment to them throughout the whole novel, but he is unable to become close to any of them due to his horrifying form. The humans are terrified of Grendel, and attack him whenever he comes near. He feels completely isolated, as do many people in our world.
Candy explains this by saying that Curly is “like a lot of little guys. He hates big guys…he’s mad at ‘em because he ain’t a big guy,” (Steinbeck, Page 26). He is unable to seek reassurance from the other men on the ranch because they are, in a way, afraid of him because of the power he holds over them by being the boss’s son. Curly is lonely as he cannot socialize with the men in a carefree way, nor can he be entirely comfortable with his wife, who was never truly in love with him. However, the reader is never asked to sympathize with Curly, nor does the author ever portray his disappointment in a straightforward way, opting instead to make him angry and confrontational to show that
