Catcher in the Rye: Journal Assignment Throughout the novel, Holden uses his isolation from society as a form of protection. He feels as if he is excluded from society, has no purpose in life and is constantly trying to find meaning for his existence. As the novel progresses, readers see that Holden uses his sense of superiority as a way to cover up his insecurities. Holden feels that because he is better than everyone else, there is no reason to interact with them. However, even though Holden acts emotionless he does have feelings but expresses them differently.
I guess Lennie will probably get into trouble. I really like George, but he is very abrupt with Lennie. George doesn’t seem to have much patience. I feel sorry for Lennie; however, Lennie would irritate me after a while, because he is so forgetful. I hope we get to our new job
Lennie’s dream is to tend the soft haired rabbits, whereas George admits that he would like to own a little patch of land and live on it in freedom. Thus, although they all share the idea of the American dream, it manifest in different ways for different characters. Thus it would appear that although the dreams Steinbeck’s characters have in “Of Mice and Men” seem to have been futile in the story, they are essential in order to give meaning to their hard lives, to make sense of their difficult existence and to keep alive the idea that, one day, their luck could
The characters in this novel had dreams that were not real or possible to achieve, but they still strived to accomplish that goal. To achieve one’s dreams or goal it usually means to make sacrifices. In all cases, if a dream is not real, reality cannot face it because of the way reality is. The characters in Mice and Men did not face reality and could not achieve there goals. Many of them had dreams which they either could not meet whether it was because of a mental or physical disability.
To try to summarize the plot of a Charlie Kaufman-scripted film is a tricky endeavor. His dark, clever scripts' charm lies in the fact that they often stray so far from the run of the mill, Hollywood storyline. Nevertheless, I shall try to give a short rundown. Joel is going through an immense depression after the demise of his relationship with Clementine. After a fight, Clementine has left him and refuses to answer his calls or respond to him.
In the critical lens, Helen Keller states “… although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it”, meaning everyone faces adversity and sadness in their lives, but they will find a way to conquer these obstacles. Keller’s take on suffering is perhaps too hopeful as there are a number of situations where one can’t overcome their suffering and it in return overcomes them. Therefore, Helen Keller’s statement is false, as so many aren’t able to defeat the suffering they are faced with. The characterization and conflict of both Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet show that not everyone will overcome suffering. Many times, individuals fail to overcome suffering while their suffering continues to overcome them.
In the first stanza the persona is “haunted” by the postcard sent to him. The negative connotation suggests that the persona has encountered an uncomfortable experience and disturbs him, and he in unable to get rid of his past. His culture will always be waiting for him to establish a connection with it. The negative connotation of “haunt” is ironic because something so small and unsubstantial has a great impact on the persona. The postcard becomes a symbol of how distant his identity is from his culture.
ISSUES : The American Dream The American Dream is an issue portrayed through different aspects and characters in Death of a Salesman. Through the play, failed visions of the American Dream are contrasted with the successful ones, highlighting the abstract quality and implications of such delusions. Willy is unable to accept the disparity between his belief in his diminutive version of the dream and his own life. The failure of Willy’s dream is indicative of the fact that the bewildered circle of American society has broken down his personal relationships, and also that the society is unstable. This reveals the tragic side of the American Dream, where it does not bring anticipation, but affliction.
I think that this pessimism of his is a way to protect himself from his own weaknesses, and that he do this partly so that he can forget how boring and unfair the adult life can be, easily said he does not wont to grow up because he is afraid that he will realize his own flaws and be crushed emotionally because of this hard realization. And that is also one thing that marks out who Holden Caulfield really is, he is a boy who does not know how he should manage how he feels and therefore he is afraid of his own feelings in a strange kind of way. To sum up Holden Caulfield-s personality from this brief analysis I would say that he is a complete emotional wreck-ship that has hit the bottom and having a hard time getting up to the surface. Holden
