During these times in winter, humans lose their perseverance and interest in defying Grendel and resort to a more peaceful state.

That free will is nonexistent, that everything happens for a reason. Furthermore, Candide initially held quite optimistic in view of destiny.
Edmund’s distant relationship with his family enhances these qualities of apathy, yet through the introspections of the character Joseph Hooper, ‘I have tried to avoid my own father’s mistakes, but I have only succeeded in replacing them with my own.’ we gather that he has the consciousness of the responsibility of being a father, however, reluctance from Edmund, hesitation to educate and timidity to reach out prevents the growth of this kinship. In spite of this, the characters of Joseph Hooper become the obstacle that lets him struggle in this relationship---his cowardice, skeptic qualities hinder his behavior to communicate with his son, in order to alleviate his guilt of not interacting actively, he allowed himself to indulge in the stereotypical misconception of all children--- Edmund is unable to perform any act of cruelty, therefore, it is unnecessary to understand the minds of such an innocent being. Though this being said, Joseph Hooper continuously inculcate the value of the red room and his distorted view of dynasty to the mind of Edmund, he regards Warings as fortune and status rather than childhood memories and warmth, ‘The collection is worth a great deal of money.’
Baker holds his head down as the ambiguity of not being to control the object around is sad to him. As far as humanity is concerned we’ve could conquer anything until there’s a time where we are suddenly powerless and vulnerable to daily phenomena we can’t control. But, Baker says there’s a peace in knowing we are powerless and at least we are aware of the position and our ignorance. Bakers use of pathos shows us this outcome, conceptually can be alluded to a lot of things that man can’t control but has the power to dictate what happens to us. Sure, the objects are trying to ruin our lives but that doesn’t mean humans can’t live on, we must be able to accept and move
Brave New World is both, utopia and dystopia. The author Aldous Huxley intended to depict an imagined new world after Ford, an industrial era, where all people would be happy and extremely satisfied or as content as the ideal society would let them be. Yet, to determine utopia and dystopia in Brave New World, we have to look at the new world from our own time and from the time before Ford, seen through the eyes of John the Savage, our predecessor. The world we observe herein reflects a futuristic world, a world that is to come, and a happy world we can imagine with an amount of disbelief. People of our world, the world which is happier than the savages' world, still not as happy as the Ford's world, will have to consider all the facts that make the new world look happy and brave.

In a society depicting such a strange ideology of people are no longer happy as they make their minds up to be, but as happy as the government allow them to be.

As John’s mother was dying, “He felt the hot tears welling up behind his eyelids as he recalled the words and Linda’s voice as she repeated them” (Huxley 201). John was about to cry because he was sad that his mother was dying, which no one in the World State could understand because death was such a normal thing for them that no one got bent up over. While John’s mother is dying, he gets angry because little boys are talking about his mother in an awful way. “The Savage had seized him by the collar, lifted him clear over the chair and, with a smart box on the ears, sent him howling away” (Huxley 202).

People, in a way, are conditioned by the media and other influences to think or act a certain way, and they judge anyone who doesn’t do the same, but the people who are profoundly intelligent and successful are typically the ones who don’t bend to the will of society.
