It was his idea to start the fight club, to let out frustrations and anger of everyday guys that want to walk into their boss’s office and upper cut them. Palahniuk’s usage of imagery, diction, and foreshadowing shows the physical, and psychological, battle that the narrator is enduring. The title of the novel suggest that the entirety of the story is about fighting. Though it is about fighting, it 's not the bare knuckles genre, it 's the psychological fight the narrator has with himself.

In the novel, a group named Fight Club (which later evolved into Project Mayhem) tried to give men the feeling of power that they were so desperately lacking for many years.
