The Hunger Artist knows that although he is honest and true to his work, his peers can never truly understand his accomplishment. In representation of Kafka’s personal life, the Hunger Artist himself loses much of his freewill. In his time, professional fasting has lost its icon.

In fact, his father praised a young man that worked as a clerk and insisted that Paul ought to be more like that gentleman. His father refused to give Paul money and argued that he has a job, so he can pay his own expenses.
Neither understands having though, passion, feeling, or emotion in life. The Myth of Sisyphus helps explain some of the meaning of some of the events taking place in The Stranger.

The death of his mother doesn’t even bother him so show sadness.
A time where I made a snap judgment was when I met my coworker. My coworker was quiet and when he did speak he was often too direct and often insulting. The way he spoke to others was as if he looked down to everybody and everyone had to do things as he said it was as if he owned the company instead of being just an employee. I had a very bad perspective of him and did not like him at all. Yes, he did does have a particular personality but when you do get to know him he is actually quiet nice.
Willy Loman passed his life without much thought what the cause and effects are co. He is so deluded of not being somebody and where he stands in the society, that he cannot let go of his delusions and clings to them until his demise. Nevertheless, this is not due to the fact that he is like any other ordinary man. It is because he is a man who lacks conviction and strength to move past
Activity #1: Diagnosis John Nash's antisocial behaviour was clear from the very beginning of the movie where we notice him seated alone and not speaking to anyone. As the movie develops he is hardly seen associating himself with people other than his roommate who he relies on and to who he states that "the truth is I don't like people much, and they don't much like me." Abnormal behaviour John displays is where he starts to believe he had been hired for a top-secret government mission, even though he hadn't. These delusions often led him to ramble on about things that no one could understood. Disorganized speech is another symptom of schizophrenia which he displayed frequently.
As mentioned above, Willy reflects Biffs’ failure in business as a reflection of his own dreams of succeeding although he only succeeded for a short while in his life. Also, the affair that Willy was in might have affected Biff and made him unable to keep a job. Willy has such insecurities with betrayal and himself that not only does he believe his family betrays him but also people on the outside too. His boss, for example, just because his boss fired him, Willy takes it as a form of betrayal even though he tells him, “there’s no room for betrayal in the business
Pushing Paper Can Be Fun Introduction The police captain is having a problem with getting his officers to file accurate and timely paper work. The officers prefer the contact they have with the public rather than sitting at the desk doing paperwork. Since the officers dislike preparing paperwork, it is often put off or done inadequately. There is not anything motivating the officers to change their attitude towards the paper work as the captain has no financial rewards in place due to budget crunches. And promotions are determined by seniority, not the quality of the paperwork.
His physical change as far as he can see will not change his enjoyment of life, there will be no difference as he was a bug before, towing the line for the boss. He was always too busy to form lasting relationships, never being seen as a person, the personification of a deadening soul. According to Karl Marx “work is external to the worker i.e. it does not form part of his essential being so that instead of feeling well in his work, he feels unhappy, instead of developing his free physical and mental energy, he abuses his body and ruins his mind.”(Bloom. Page 107) Gregor basically is beginning self-alienation, he believes he is something hideous physically but mentally still holds onto his human conformist mindset.
