A reader can infer that, although his muzzle might be robust, he finds it makes for a great distraction from his glorious self. Cyrano leads himself to believe the hearsay that he is not worthy of anything, let alone love. His corrupted mind insists he is not, and never will be, striking enough because of his nose. Cyrano’s one true love, Roxanne, has no idea he loves her because he has allowed himself to believe that she could never be in love with his beastly semblance. It is human nature to believe oneself to have worse features and flaws, which in turn leads to self-devaluing or self-destruction, as Cyrano clearly demonstrates.

Frequently, male dancers are left to feel inadequate and are discouraged from their art because their manliness is questioned. Yet, the 2000 film, Billy Elliot, juxtaposes the stereotype of male ballet dancers with a titular character who defies all expectations. The man’s historical role as provider and protector causes men in professions such as ballet to be considered effeminate; however, a man with a profession in the arts is no less masculine than the majority of males and can be just as prosperous as any other man.
Lennie proves the better man in both senses. The defeat is thus a symbolic castration of sorts. This symbolism is reinforced when Curley's wife appears to find the big man's defeat of her husband alluring - "I like machines" (Steinbeck, 80). Getting his hand "caught in a machine" is a reasonable lie, in fact probably the only one, which allows Curley to preserve his ego. Obviously, Lennie has no clue that he is bringing about such issues in the domains of sex and violence - he can't comprehend these ideas himself.
He voices his admiration of himself in a way that he wants to love and take care of himself the way a spouse would. This can also be interpreted as Narcissus appreciating his own beauty because he is his conditioned by his peers, but he cannot fully love himself because he does not accept himself for who he is as a being. At the beginning of the poem, Narcissus is prideful of his appearance although, towards the end of the poem he realizes that he is looking at his reflection and cannot hold a romantic relationship with himself: “the world become cloudswell” (15). In the last line, Narcissus states that his world became dreary and dark due to his discovery that the body of water was showing his
