In The Clown Punk the narrator says 'towing a dog on a rope' which represents him as an outsider. This could also suggest that he is homeless,poor and a very lonely man.

It makes him seem vulnerable and less secure without his parents. This is tragic, because not only has his parents died, but he’s never met them. The only way that he could imagine whom his parents were was through the tombstones. This is shown when he says, ‘My first fancies regarding what they were like, were unreasonably derived from their tombstones.’ This makes us feel sympathetic towards Pip because he feels stupid as he mentions that it is ‘unreasonably derived’ and it’s the only way he can reach his parents.

Anse never acted as a stanchion – he by no means showed love or compassion for anyone throughout the book, especially his luckless children. With his inability to take action and foresee situations, Anse’s blatant faults overtly parallel every disaster in the novel. Other characters in As I Lay Dying who were more rational and not part of the Bundren family (Peabody, Samson, Tull) all agreed on Anse’s ruinous and lazy character – “I notice how it takes a lazy man, a man that hates moving, to get set on moving once he does get started off, the same as when he was set on staying still, like it ain’t the moving he hates so much as the starting and the stopping”

By nights he would lie beside her, of necessity, in the hollow caverns, against his will, by one who was willing, but all the days he would sit upon the rocks, at the seaside, breaking his heart in tears and lamentation and sorrow as weeping tears he looked out over the barren water”.

Gaffney highlights John’s alienation because of the new world’s discouragement for Shakespeare. The awkward situation leaves him embarrassed, beginning his isolation from modern society. John’s entire life has been spent in solitude reading Shakespeare. Suddenly immersed in a society in which his behavior is completely taboo, John finds himself even further separated from the community than he was on the reservation. Bernard observes that John may never be able to completely assimilate into this environment, “partly on his interest, being focused on what he calls ‘the soul’ which he persists in regarding as an entity independent of the physical environment” (158).
