Ascher compares the chosen lifestyle of The Box Man, to the undesired for loneliness of the victims; although, one may be poor and alone it does not mean that one is unhappy. For example paragraph twelve explains the mayor has offered him help, but yet and still The Box Man pushes his offer away. In paragraph eighteen it describes how The Box Man actually enjoys his dark life. However it is portrayed as if life is a solo journey and more are miserable by going through life accompanied than being a box collector. Ascher brought up memories from her own past, The Box Car Childrean.
This also could be used to describe to describe his view on life seeing that he thought people were “boring” if they were just like everyone else and cared about the little details. The author also uses italics to emphasize words like in this sentence: “I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them”.

Holden seemed to try to get the point of what he was trying to tell his sister while she kept on correcting him. Another strategy used by the author to effectively
During the course of the novel of ‘Deadly Unna?’ the readers are exposed to the negativity between the father and his son. This affects Blacky in way that his self-esteem is almost non-existent, and the negativity is prominent throughout the novel. Examples of the neglect shown by his father are that of the time when Bob refers to Blacky as a ‘gutless wonder’, and the journey we take through the story of Blacky’s deteriorating respect for him. The ‘gutless wonder’ incident was a influential part of the novel, as Blacky realises that his Dad isn’t one to take advice of someone he feels is inferior than him, thus saying, ‘My own son, a gutless wonder. A gutless fucking wonder!’ When Blacky explains to his father about the storm, Bob insults him rather than swallow his pride and takes his son’s advice on board.

The physical barrier being the wall itself and the emotional barrier of feeling shut off from each other. This shows how contradiction is part of the human way of life, in this poem it is that they want to work together to fix the wall because it is broken, yet the protagonist yearns to be accepted by his neighbour and wants to take the wall down so they can be together in companionship instead of just repairing a wall once a year together. However, by the protagonists pleas the neighbour simply says, and with repetition “Good fences make good neighbours” This repetition explores how a person’s tradition can make them stubborn and unwilling to accept new ideas, like taking down a wall to start a friendship. To humans, tradition is something that is not questioned or changed; this shows how some people follow their tradition faithfully while
My question to this was there a problem in Bartleby’s life? The narrator shows how Bartleby starts to just drift away, he starts off being a very excellent working to just not doing anything. He even begins to just stare at the wall. He is just there not wantingto do anything but just be there. My thought on this is that the lawyer is feeling sorry for Bartleby.
He has low self esteem which will impact on everything he does. He has some confidence issues relating to his self image which cause him to think that his colleagues see him as boring because he does not socialise with them.

With regards to his girlfriend the fear of rejection makes him feel he is not good enough for her and that is why he will not ask her to marry
Paul despises his common life so much that he feels he must hid it from his peers through lies. He tells them false information of his ‘upper class’ life, such as announcing his travels to far off places, to make them believe he is above the average middle class person. Every lie Paul tells, the further away he gets from realizing and appreciating the good that is already present in his life (such as family) and from

I have seen child support agencies look down their nose at fathers for not paying and he is trying to explain his situation, and the agency just turning their nose up at him, instead of heading him in the direction of success. I think there should be more programs for the father so we can help the root of the
