Victor has lost all touch with the world due to his work and twisted experiments. Society refuses to accept those who are different from everyone else, he is secluded, and he seems to have “lost all soul or sensation but for this one pursuit” (Shelley 38). Victor is isolated from others through his ungodly pursuit of creating artificial life. His work is frowned upon when he exhibits his experiments.
The narrator of this story is Death, which in itself is a paradox because death is not a living thing and therefore cannot have an opinion or make decisions. Throughout The Book Thief, Death often adds in his own opinion or foreshadows something to come. He also interjects straight-out spoilers of events that have yet to occur. For example, here Death gives away the fact that Rudy is going to die and that it was unfair by declaring: “A SMALL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT RUDY STEINER He did not deserve to die the way he did” (Zusak 241).
Isolation of the human heart results in the inability to connect and take part in a greater existence, whereas blindness of the human eye gives way to the truth and tenderness of humanity found in the wonders of this world. In Raymond Carver’s short story, “Cathedral”, the nameless narrator seems to exhibit behavioral patterns of an addict, tending to detach himself from the plot and all relationships that he continually fails to confront throughout life. The central figure, who abhors the blind, is ignorant of his own constraints, which prevent him from recognizing the traces of transcendence in humanity that lies beyond the temptation of physical pleasure. Through the utilization of the communion model, by way of first-person narration, characterization, and extended metaphors, Carver reveals the main character’s journey of rapport, which is indicative of a human’s limited sight of truth and understanding, leading one to search outside the scope of curiosity for a more fulfilling life. One may begin to apprehend Carver’s true message throughout “Cathedral” by first considering the significant role that the first-person perspective of the main character plays in the basic plot scheme.

This is not normal human behavior. The monster, like anyone else, was going a bit insane being completely alone. This kind of loneliness can lead to poor judgment and decisions. Victor focused so much on his studies that he caused himself to be lonely and said: “I shunned the face of man; all sound of joy or complacency was torture to me; solitude was my only consolation - deep, dark, deathlike solitude.” Joy being torture to someone differentiates from regular human behavior.
Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true.

He is saying that he left everything for his relentless search of knowledge and forgetting about his physical. I think that his suffering is do to the doubts that he had about life. When Victor gave life to the monster, he couldn’t believe the appearance of the monster that he just run away. This was another problem that caused his suffering because of his absences on taking care of the creature. Because of his lack of human appearance, society making something bad awake inside him rejects the monster.
Macbeth’s mind has become so “familiar with slaughterous thoughts” that he “forgot the taste of fears” (5.5.9,14). Macbeth’s greed made his mind so dark that he can no longer fear the real world. This shows that Macbeth’s paranoia and hallucinations are so awful, that the real world does not seem threatening. Even with enemies wanting to kill him, Macbeth becomes more frightened by his own mind. When Macbeth’s wife dies, he does not even feel remorse because he can no longer feel human emotions.

This Sherman Alexie's influential essay, "What Sacagawea Means to Me" is all about our country and its contradictions. When you first start reading this essay, you get the feeling that his tone is sarcasm. At the beginning of his essay Alexie states this, "In the future, every U.S. citizen will get to be Sacagawea for 15 minutes". My thought is that he is saying everyone in the U.S. will get to experience hardships like the ones that Sacagawea had to suffer throughout her difficult life. Sacagawea was the Indian woman who led Louis and Clark on their expedition across the U.S.
Courage is a virtue, always desired, but not often achieved. Humans are born to be courageous, whether it is due to their upbringing, or the choices they make. Often, the human brain can be indecisive; being courageous dissolves into being fearful or having a sudden urge to want something irrational, as is the case in the novel, Delirium, written by Lauren Oliver considering revising for run on sentence. Lena is a less than average girl who struggles in a world which is controlled by power and fear. The cold electric fence that lines the outer edges of Portland keeps the population contained in the “ideal” world that the government desires to rule.
