Secondly, Simon’s shyness makes him have a lack of communication making him a bad leader. For instance, Simon is the first to recognize the fact that the beastie is actually the boys. He realizes it is the evil within them. As a matter of fact, Simon tries to explain what he has understood, but his shyness and lack of communication doesn’t make him able to tell the other boys. As the author stated, “Simon became inarticulate in his effort to express mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 97).
Huckleberry can also sense when someone is not a good person. For example, despite not attending church or school, Huck could sense that Injun Joe was a bad person based upon his actions. Therefore, Huckleberry Finn should not be considered “lawless”. In spite of these reasons, some readers may believe that the description “lawless and vulgar and bad” fits Huck because he steals and loafs around. In reality, Huck is unable to control his circumstances, which justifies why he must act lawless occasionally.
Contact with members of the lower castes always reminded him painfully of this physical inadequacy” (64). Bernard shows dissatisfaction with his intellectual superiority. Bernard believes his insufficient physical traits threaten his place of power. He continues to add to the lack of diversity in Brave New World by not only trying to hide the introverted side to himself, but he tries to overcompensate for his height with his

As opposed to being respected for his intelligence he has been converted into a laughing stock his poverty.

Maycomb County, a place in which innocent children fall under the influence of their parents who are hypocrites that hide behind their facades, making it the only “normal” they have come to know. Two men, who may seem the exact opposite, really have similarities. On one side, we see Atticus Finch, an extremely wise man by nature who has solid principles and a clear sense of morality. However, we also learn about Bob Ewell, who has an evil and unadmirable nature. Nonetheless, both men may not be so different after all.
They try to teach him morals and how to pray before meals, but Huck wants none of this. “Miss Watson she kept pecking at me, and it got tiresome and lonesome.” (p. 3). He seems disrespectful and ungrateful for the help and takes off. He is not inasmuch as mean to them, however, he doesn’t appreciate their willingness to help him. Most children would be grateful for the love and kindness, but not Huck.
Holden’s solitude is more evident because he is trying to keep his innocence while rest of the world is pressuring him and he has no companions to help him. In the end he realizes that he must learn to deal with the loneliness that he brought upon by himself, which leads him into depression. Huckleberry shares these intense feelings of rejection since several events led him to feel very “lonesome.” However, unlike Holden who was also physically completely alone, Huck Finn is always accompanied by Tom Sawyer or
The contrast between the characters Barelas and Seferino conveys the wise knowledge one gains from experience and the bothersome disillusionment concerning money and happiness, therefore symbolizing the disparity between the foolish youth and the learned individual. Growing up, Seferino notices the relatively ill-mannered treatment Romero was receiving for his efforts. He was barely getting paid at all, and according to Seferino’s viewpoint, he wasn’t getting enough respect nor appreciation because of his low wages. Barelas, however, disagrees with his son’s assertion because although his argument logically makes sense, there is still experience from his viewpoint that causes him to disagree: Barelas just knew his son was putting something over on him but he didn’t know how to answer. It seemed to make sense the way Seferino explained it.
Alterity is always in the eyes of the beholder and Helena and Neville are a perfect example of that because the town does not see them as equal. If nothing else, they are seen as less English because not raised in the Victorian spirit. Dickens presents them through the eyes of other people; they are not the agents, but the objects of the action. That is particularly true in Neville’s case because, although he is innocent, Jasper’s Machiavellian plan ruins his life, especially the social part of it, to the point that, shunned by the town he rarely even leaves his room. Neville did not do anything bad, something bad was done to him, but he cannot influence the way people see him because Jasper had already taken care of that.
The innocent actions some take later in life will reward some, and deteriorate others. Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, by J.D Salinger delays his evitable process of growing up partly because of the tragic events that transpired earlier in his life and his ignorance to reality. However , Chris Mccandless differs from Holden in the fact that he fully understands reality but protests to greed of humans and the material possessions of man and still facing the gruesome consequence of his immaturity. Seymour Glass does not relate to the accepted adult community and further isolates himself from his peers. Although he appears immature, he actually is struggling from PTSD from the war and the picture his has for the violent adult man.
