When you analyze the choices and thoughts of Meursault, you will begin to notice his avoidance of aloneness. He constantly needs company, no matter who or what it is, which is how he remains sane throughout the novel. The Stranger opens up with Meursault talking about his mother’s death, “For now, it’s almost as if Maman weren’t dead. After the funeral though, the case will be closed and everything will have a more official feel to it.” (3) Meursault has that Absurdist point of view, where his mother’s death is almost insignificant to him. Although in the second sentence he recognizes that later he will come to feel the loss.
The director’s purpose in the Grapes of Wrath differed slightly from that of Steinbeck’s. In the film the director’s purpose was to illustrate the trials of a family affected by the Great Depression, and also to show that after countless struggles their situation could improve. The ending of the moving gave a sense of hope to the family’s future. Steinbeck’s book differed in that in the end, the family’s future was not hopeful; his book also put emphasis on the aspect of survival in difficult times. Consequently, the film diverted from the books plot, particularly in the resolution.
This lack of a father figure to influence him positively through his life could also provide reasoning for his ease to be influenced by Lord Henry. As shown by Lady Henry, Dorian begins to quote ‘one of Harry’s views’ showing the thorough control that Henry has over Dorian’s life in the same way a child would copy his father. This moment in his life also meant that Dorian was brought up by his cruel grandfather, Kelso, (instigator of his mother’s and father’s death) and from the nature of ‘the old schoolroom’ we can see that Kelso despised Dorian as he was a reminder of his daughter and her substandard marriage. This isolation can explain his naivety and provide some excuse for his ignorance leading to debauchery. In the beginning of the novel Dorian’s character comes across as childish and displays innocence and inexperience towards the world.
In Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour,” Mrs. Mallard should not be judged harshly. Mrs. Mallard should be defended because she grieves over her husband, because of the status of their relationship, since she feels grief and numbness she tries to beat the sense of freedom once she has gained it. One reason why no one should view Mrs. Mallard harshly is because she does grieve over the loss of her husband, Brently Mallard. Losing a loved one or a friend can take a toll on a person, which is called the grieving process. The grieving process gives someone time to reflect and find new strength that enables one to continue on one’s own life journey and regain peace of mind.
Before he was caught up in the moment, without much room for thinking he chose to follow his sense of justice. But his choice lead to an outcome he had not expected, and now that he has a chance to catch his breath Sarty is unaware of the great distance he has traveled, metaphorically rather than figuratively, this suggests that Sarty has not fully acknowledged the significance of his actions towards the building of his character. Faulkner uses Sarty’s home metaphorically as it symbolizes the familiarities and comforts he must leave behind in order to come to terms
It's still hard for me to have a clear mind thinking on it. But it's the truth even if it didn't happen” (p.8). The quote shows the real beginning in the book by Chief Bromden, and illustrates slightly how Bromden acts, feels and thinks. Bromden lives in his own thoughts and feelings and does not share them with the other patients. Life with talking would be probably too stressful for him.
When one begins reading this novel, one trusts the narrator, but, after finishing, it is clear that the narrator, in fact, cannot be trusted. Dr. Faraday is not a reliable person who is trustworthy, dependable, and authentic. By exploring his character traits, his psychopathic nature, and his dysfunctional relationships, it is clear that Dr. Faraday is anything but reliable. Dr. Faraday is illustrated as an unreliable narrator from the beginning through the character traits the author provides the reader. When he goes to Hundreds Hall, he is supposed to examine Betty.
William Gass, however, doesn’t seem to totally agree with Larkin in his essay Exile. He claims that we don’t have to be afraid of death because it is a destiny that once reached, will relieve us from the exile of life. Nonetheless, he is not entirely on the opposite side either, believing that death is not something to celebrate because the final destination is not where everything starts, but where everything ends. There is nothing but end there. Comparing the two works, we can see that what decides the authors’ opinion about death is actually how they see lives.
He actively searches for answers to the unexplainable tragedies he experiences. Both Bartleby and J.B. deteriorate with time, but for different reasons. Bartleby’s deterioration is a product of his apathy and isolationism while J.B.’s deterioration is caused by the sudden tragic loss of his loved ones and sense of purpose. Initially, Bartleby and J.B. both seem to have typical lifestyles. Bartleby seems eager to do “an extraordinary quantity of writing.” He is “famishing for something to copy.” (648) He accomplishes what is expected of him without protest.
With regards to him mentioning that he has nothing to offer his girlfriend , and of course again the fear of rejection, we know that he has the resources to fulfil a managerial position however his fear of upsetting others is preventing him from applying. It is also worth looking at why there is this excuse of him not being able to spend time with his work colleagues due to him visiting his mother, is there a guilt factor involved where he feel he should not displease his mother. Is it a question of whether she has an unhealthy hold on him where it affects him to such a degree that he can’t change the day he sees her? Does he already feel inadequate when facing his mother this statement that she would pick on him more than usual seems to suggest that he is avoiding conflict and does not have the courage to stand up to his mother.
