Consequently, he bitterly guards his enforced privacy, saying to Lennie, “This here’s my room…I ain’t wanted in the bunkhouse, and you ain’t wanted in my room.” He is regretting the way that he taunted Lennie, “A guy needs somebody – to be near him” and “a guy gets too lonely” and “A guy sets alone out here at night.” It is implied that Crooks is thrilled when Lennie and Candy come into his room and are his companions for a night. Due the ways Crooks is constantly treated with rudeness and arrogance, Crooks turns the table and torments innocent Lennie which can make the
Not only is it dangerous for the patient to try and maneuver his walker up and down the stairs, it will also be painful. Since the patient lives alone and has limited contact with his son, he risks becoming completely isolated. He also jointly runs a bakery, which is located on the first floor of his apartment building, with his brother Karl. Therefore, Karl will be unavailable to help since he will be busy with the business and will not be receiving any help from Mr. Trosack. The apartment is also small and cluttered with spaces not suited for a walker.
Holden can’t find a true friend in anyone, and he is trying to fill the hole that his brother’s death left in his life. Holden considers everyone a phony, and can’t seem to make friends or talk to girls. He tries to find romance, but he always ends up ruining the
And finally, throughout the return and reintegration, the narrator realizes his mistake, and refuses to go back to being the way he was previously. The monomythical structure of this essay is clearly defined by the actions and thoughts of the protagonist figure. During the separation in this story, the narrator tells how he has seen a man in the elevator at work have some kind of emotional breakdown. He explains how he did his best not to look at the other man, or make any indication that he had seen the man collapse on the floor, wracked with sobs. Because this isn’t a fairy tale, and there is no actual ‘adventure’ taking place, this can be viewed as the protagonist refusing to take on the quest he is being presented.
As he is starting his process he neglects his family friends and any other social areas. Now since he has been lonely and avoiding people he decided to stay in his apartment and create a powerful experiment. Once he brought the monster to life he got very terrified and afraid of it. After going to sleep wishing the monster wasn’t there he woke up with its laying across its bed with a big smile on its face. Later that day victor left because he thought his apartment was hunted and ended up running into a old friend.
Even when he is alone he can never be sure that he is alone. Wherever he may be, asleep or awake, working or resting, in his bath or in bed, he can be inspected without warning and without knowing that he is being inspected. Nothing that he does is indifferent. His friendships, his relaxations, his behavior toward his wife and children, the expression of his face when he is alone, the words he mutters in sleep, even the characteristic movements of his body, are all jealously scrutinized. Not only any actual misdemeanor, but any eccentricity, however small, any change of habits, any nervous mannerism that could possibly be the symptom of an inner struggle, is certain to be detected.
The primary purpose of the doors is to physically depict Gregor’s alienation and seclusion from the rest of the world and also from his family. Gregor’s transformation soon comes to be called “his imprisonment” because of the way it causes him to be shut in his room, trapped by the doors much like a prisoner is imprisoned in a jail cell in an effort to separate him from the rest of society (Kafka 25). Although he was left totally alone in his room, cut off from the rest of the house by the doors of his room, no one “wanted to stay home alone” in the apartment with him because he was viewed as an abomination to his family (24). In the beginning stages of his transformation, Gregor is already cut off from the rest of his family and also his job by the doors as it was “slammed shut with a cane” the moment his family realizes that he has been transformed into something different than a human in form (19). By always being closed tightly shut, the doors emphasize Gregor’s loneliness and his abandonment by his family and also by other people such as when Gregor’s family takes in boarders in an attempt to raise more money
This demonstrated that Boo had no connections to anyone outside his house since he was not allowed to have one which made misery rain on him. Lastly Boo was always discriminated and never appreciated for anything he had done to serve society. As the people of Maycomb always on thought of Boo being a bad person, he was shown evidently that he served society as a secret hero such as when he had saved the children from Bob Ewell; “Mr. Ewell was tryin’ to squeeze me to death . .
Emily Stewart ENGL 1302 Villarreal 04/03/2014 Paper 2 Rough Draft In Paul’s Case, author Willa Cather elaborates heavily on the temperament of a young man, Paul, and his struggle and triumphs in and around his home on Cordelia Street. Paul goes through the motions of life completely dissatisfied by his normal surroundings. School, his home on Cordelia Street, and most importantly, his father, all drive him into a hole of depression that he can only escape through arts. All though the arts–music, theatre, art– alone did not relate to Paul, the setting mixed with the arts “seemed to free some hilarious spirit within him” (Cather 126). Paul’s father, as described by Paul’s thoughts, is a wealthy business man who believes in
The boy from “Araby” was alone, with this feeling that he could not make sense of because his faith tells him that they are a sin. Something similar happened with Nickles as Sebacher says, “That night, unable to sleep, Nickles drove his Nova out to her house. The house was completely dark and vacant-looking, but he knew she was there. He felt as though all the light had left the world, which was not an entirely unpleasant feeling, somehow. The loneliness of interstellar space, he said to himself-a line from Ulysses Robert [his best friend] often recited” (Sebacher 1).
