Prior to moving East, Nick was rumored to be engaged; however, when the Buchanans ask about this, he says that he “wasn’t even vaguely engaged” (Fitzgerald 18). While he says that one cannot end a relationship “on account of rumors”, he also claims to have “no intention of being rumored into marriage” (Fitzgerald 18). Nick running away from his problems shows his immaturity. Similarly, after he moves, he says that he had a “short affair with a girl who lived in Jersey City... but her brother began throwing mean looks in my direction, so when she went on her vacation in July, I let it blow quietly away” (Fitzgerald 45). He continues to refuse to face problems in his relationships and instead abandons them, which further shows his childish approach to dating and relationships.

Creon’s “moral imaginations” and “deliberative rationality” causes him to have a complete absence of internal conflict towards the aspect of familial ties. Nussbaum points this out as a contradiction with the state and civic interest and Creon’s “practical wisdom”. Unfortunately, this led to his downfall due to his rigid outlook and simplification of his ethics as Nussbaum reveals. Creon’s downfall is presented by the death of his son Haemon. This ultimately leads to Creon’s rejection of his “practical wisdom”, as Nussbaum accentuates, and the disharmony caused by deinon; meaning, as Nussbaum says, that Creon was portrayed as “awe-inspiring” but is later confronted with a dilemma that he no longer could control, which lead him to abandoning his narrow sighted
No one understood me, and I understood nothing But then you were born!”(75~76). In the quote the Jack’s mother mentions that she was 10 year old orphan for six years. Until she met her “American” husband which is Jack’s dad. Jack’s Dad could not understand her until the birth of Jack. Since she had no friend and the family, she felt more Lonely.
His feelings of loneliness and isolation are transformed into cynicism as he is extremely judgmental towards everything and the world around him. This could be linked to the fact that he is unable to fit in and so he decides to act superior and be negative towards those around him to make himself feel better. The reader would think that Holden feels like he’s disappearing because he has no one to share his thoughts and feelings with or feel that the lack of family support contributes to his mental instability. Perhaps, Salinger presented Holden in such a way to highlight the importance of family support or suggest how significant its effects are. This is shown at the beginning of the novel to reflect how his childhood was traumatised in the past and highlights the significance of childhood in later
Of course, his actions do not resemble the behavior of a virtues man, but Don does not care what a decent man supposed to do. This attitude chose in the essence of all of his decisions. Consider, for instance, how he was ready to abandon his wife for and young 21-year-old woman, knowing that he would be leaving his kids in a broken family. At the same time, it does not seem that he did not love them. However, as true existentialist, he was acting according to what seems right for
However, the behavior of our narrator’s husband is the complete opposite of this. Instead of believing her, or even attempting to help her, he acts as a direct hindrance in her ability to receive the proper care she needs. His oppression of the
In suggesting that the father intentionally ignores the cries of his child who beckons him to: “speak, father, speak to your little boy/ Or else I shall be lost” [Blake, 190]. Evokes the notion of the father accepting that he has a lack of financial means in order to provide for his child, hence why he abandons it. Blake in doing this represents that poverty can lead to an abandonment of humanity, that the effects of these by-products can be so extreme that it can turn even the most caring of parents into the most unsympathetic humans. In evidence of this statement, it is conclusive that Blake wishes to present the effects of poverty in such a way in order to show that he acknowledges that these themes are created by the lifestyles enforced by the ‘elite’ in society. And in doing so Blake provides a mirror of the larger figures in society through the father in which he conveys this abandonment of thought and dehumanization of the people who are smaller than

The impossibility of this request not only drives the point that Feste is incapable of determining sanity because he cannot ever see Malvolio’s brain, but that there is inherent danger in letting him analyze Malvolio’s sanity. Figuratively letting Feste look at Malvolio’s brain gives Feste control over Malvolio and his thoughts. This is drawing the comparison that Malvolio would lose control of the part of
That means that the author had to be honest with his partner or he knew he had to leave. Some example that I gave uses imagery too. Imagery is a literary device that makes an image in your mind. “All the leaves are brown, And the sky is grey” (1:1,2). That causes a image in your mind of a sad environment which can also make you sad.
