As a result of his insecurities, Gene becomes frustrated and allows himself to be overcome by his self-hatred, which causes him to harm himself and act unreasonably insecure. Gene is not inherently evil, rather he becomes corrupt as a result of his insecurities which provoke confusion and vice.

I couldn’t stand this” (59). This discovery shatters Gene emotionally because he realizes that all of his feelings of resentment towards Finny are caused by all of his own misperceptions and insecurities. All of the pent-up jealousy inside of Gene releases itself and pushes Gene to commit the ultimate betrayal, jouncing a tree limb that causes Finny to fall into a river bank, an action which leads to Finny shattering his leg. At first, Finny believes that this was all just an accident and even denies that Gene is responsible for his injury when Gene tries to confess to him. Near the end of the novel, though, the relationship between Gene and Finny has been restored by Finny’s realization that Gene was the cause of his injury and his unconditional forgiveness for that wretched deed, but Finny dies soon after.

Turning from a prideful boy to being merciful toward his dead brother. In fact, it all began when his brother was born, “with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man’s” (595).

The narrator encourages Doodle to keep on pushing, but no sooner does the narrator learn that pushing Doddle over his limitations will sooner or later kill him. The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride.

The trial increase the crippling effect of guilt on Gene. The following shows how Gene reacted to Leper telling everyone that Gene caused Finny to fall out of the tree. “Everyone must be able to see how false his confidence was. Any fool could see that.
