This shows his desparation at self imposed exile by moving to Darwin. This is because he believes that he is responsible for not protecting his family as the venemous Nazis besieged his home and forever broke the link between him and his family which as a result contributes to his negative opinion of Vienna. This negative opinion is portrayed when he is invited to dinner with Paul's family where he remarks" Nothing my dear lady could make me feel homesick" as well as that Vienna is a place of pomp and glory. This signifies that he has seperated himself from the world he knew and love replacing it with the town which is famous for its 'booze & blasphemy." In this new setting Keller is a changed man however he has still maintained his love for music as it is an integral part of his being and therefore he can never run away from his past.

Later, however, the author uses the same description for his creator Victor as he soon becomes “so miserable a wretch”, demonstrating how they ultimately face the same fate. One may also recognise that both Frankenstein and the creature seem to share a strong need for the support and love of a family. Even though Victor often acts quite egoistical, he sincerely loves his family. Without them, he feels life is pointless, which is evident when he contemplates suicide, “I was tempted to plunge into the silent lake”, but he decides against it as it would cause too much pain for his loved ones, “But I was restrained, when I thought of the heroic and suffering Elizabeth”.

In the novel, Finney repeatedly refuses to listen to the facts of Gene breaking Finney’s leg because he “do[esn’t] care,” (Knowles 151). Because Finney wouldn’t listen, he ran out and ends up breaking his own leg, and since he is reluctant to face reality, he gets sent to the hospital. Likewise, during the movie, even when Neil is not allowed to participate in the play, because of his strong passion for acting he still goes on with his part, though it upsets his father deeply (Dead Poets’ Society). Because Neil acts in the play, it causes his father to be infuriated with him, and Finney’s father decides to ship him off to another school. Both examples show how each of the boys are opposed to face their own realities, and because of this they end up hurting themselves.

While Adolf slowly became sulkier and more of a loner, she didn’t notice and blew it off as teenage moods. About two years later when Hitler failed his examinations, he convinced his mother to leave school without graduating. He immensely enjoyed his new freedom, and immediately moved to Vienna, where he wished to enter in an art school. When Vienna rejected his application, he was quite nearly heartbroken, as he thought very highly of his artistic ability. He, of course, applied to others but was again rejected because of his lack of
