This in turn causes him to realize that that in the world there is nothing to believe in, nothing to guide civilization, only a choice, the right thing versus the safe thing to do in any situation. Shortly after he begins to experience emotions that he was not accustomed to experiencing before such as remorse, guilt, sadness, laughter and love. This job that he had made him harm innocent people that have never done him harm, which causes him to feel all sorts of emotions and see him descending into worse and worse places. This mindless job of signing off on warrants was becoming too difficult for him to handle. Mr. Sverak quickly begins to understand that the goodness people find in life is not hypocritical in the slightest, rather a fact that is made by choices that we as
Humiliation may have been deserved, as he humiliated his peers, ruined their fun, and treated them poorly on a regular basis. He did not deserve to be locked up and tricked to the extent that he was, he is rude and unkind but he is only human and most of his issues probably stem from a sense of insecurity at his lack of status and ability to get on with his peers. He has an inflated self worth but it seems as though it could be a façade. He deserves retribution for the way he treats the people around him but the trick played on him by the people he bothers is
This creates a myriad of negative emotions and frustrations for both of them. When the situation escalates between them, Willy reverts to a time when Biff was young and full of potential. Consequently, Willy does not deal with the real problem he has in his relationships and his life, he simply closes his eyes and suffer more as a result. Ultimately, Willy’s refusal to accept the truth has not only separated him from himself, it also pushed him further from everyone else. His wife is simply comforting and enabling him consistently while he and Happy possess no substantial relationship outside of the lies they both share.
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
TITLE OF THE STORY ‘The Boarded Window’ itself represents Murdock and tells the readers that he was under a great amount of stress. The readers are also told that he did not board the windows due to his hatred of light and fresh air, but some other reason such as his wife’s death. Windows are generally the passageway to something, but when boarded up, it blocks any such entrances. “Anyone knew why it was so closed; certainly not because of the occupant’s dislike of light and air,” these lines justify the aforementioned
Card displaying the great deal of misfortune that Ender faces throughout the book almost guarantees the reader will feel some sense of sorrow for him. So the reader is so full of sorrow for Ender that they want him to be innocent. The reader never gets to experience what the buggers had been through or even know their future intentions of the humans. The reader gets so trapped in sympathy of Ender that they never once question the morality of his mass genocide. The reader feels as if it isn’t his fault when indeed it is.
To explain, Montresor was insulted by Fortunato, the resolution to this conflict should have been as simple as confronting Fortunato with his hurt feelings. Instead, Montresor decides “[he] would be avenged” (Poe 543). Because of the dramatic way Montresor decides to resolve the conflict between himself and his friend, his character is shifted towards an unruly one. Montresor has no regards for those around him, he has no insight to anyone but himself. As a result of the way he chooses to resolve conflicts, he allows the conflicts to take control of his every action.

His downfall can be foreshadowed throughout the play, and one of the most significant reasons is because of his anger and aggression. Sometimes people say comments that they do not mean due to anger, but that is no excuse for Creon. He takes it to a whole new level that causes most to be afraid of him. Which in a way, leads to him believing that his decisions are right, due to no one standing up to him. This is clearly shown when the Sentry indicates, "I didn 't do it.
Later on we learn these vices are not as bad. Malcom’s pent up rage and sorrow caused him to be so critical of himself and makes him hate himself, which is not a healthy way of coping; it is barley coping at all. Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, also represents this way of coping. When confronted with problems he just doesn’t help himself, and later in the movie it is shown how unhealthy this is. These two characters show the destructive nature of failure to cope, and its
Antwone suffers from displacement and repression, and he also deny a lot about his pass experiences. With that being said, my treatment recommendation for Antwone is the psychoanalytic theory. Antwone denies and bottles up all the anger that he has from his pass without realizing that it is causing him more harm. He refused to talk about these issues because he thought that he does not have an issues. With all the anger bottled up, he tends to displace them by lashing out on his co-workers.
However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked. Also, when Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini patting him on the forehead in the middle of the night, he tells us of similar “perverty” stuff that happened to him multiple times as a child. Therefore, he clearly struggles to trust anyone he both meets and knows, which shows his insecurity and skepticism of others. Another instance of this is Holden’s relationship with D.B. Although Holden says that they were once close, he now considers D.B.
However, Gene misreads this as a threat and comes to the conclusion that “The deadly rivalry was on both sides after all” (Knowles 54).
