That way I wouldn’t have to have any of those goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody” (218). This illustrates just how far he was willing to go to avoid interaction, because he truly thinks that it is pointless. Throughout the novel the reader is exposed to Holden’s damaged mind and personality.

Sometimes, truth can be so hurting that it becomes impossible to bear, especially if it carries some elements of shame and guilt. However, a responsible person should accept their mistakes and do whatever it takes to rectify the errors, and even ask for forgiveness. On the other hand, evil people will always fight truth and never want it to be revealed.

When truth dawns upon him, he feels terrible and intensifies his acts of building fences around himself because he never gives his family a chance of knowing and understanding him.
When the family returned to the cottage and attacked him, it was another reminder that he will never fit in. All he went in there for was to try to make a friend so he wouldn't be so alone, but the family saw it otherwise. As these events occur, readers can see why the monster gets so mad.

First of all, one person who is responsible for the tragic ending of the play is Tybalt. The first reason because of his anger with Romeo for falling in love with Juliet and Mercutio tries to defend Romeo which ends up causing Tybalt to fight Mercutio and kill him, and then Romeo killed Tybalt for taking Mercutio life away.

His reluctance creates a sense of commotion, allows the readers to understand that Oedipus is the killer; this is also illustrated after he expresses that “[his] grief is [Oedipus’](38).” The grief he contains prepares the audience for the catastrophic tragedy. Nevertheless, Oedipus fails to comprehend Teiresias’ warning, and calls him “cold, stubborn, fool (38)” out of anger; he could no longer resist the need of unmasking the murderer.

He conjectured that his relative Kreon hired Teiresias to plot schemes against him because of the substantial amount of money and power he bores.
