He suffered immensely during his voyage back home. The main reason Odysseus couldn't go home was that he infuriated Lord Poseidon. “Poseidon is stiff and cold with anger because Odysseus blinded his son, the Cyclops Polyphemus, the strongest of all Cyclops… The Earthshaker has been after Odysseus ever since, not killing him, but keeping him away from his native land” Odysseus desperately longed for home after fighting the war at Troy. Nevertheless, his desire could not be fulfilled because he maddened a god. As a consequence, Odysseus was kept away from Ithaca.
“‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111). This is just one example of the internal conflict going on endlessly within himself. In Night, the question asking whether family is a blessing or a curse is the most significant theme because it highlights good and bad times, it shows the internal conflict between whether he wants his father around or not, and it illustrates the dehumanization Elie faces throughout the Holocaust. When thinking of family,
An example of the effect the feud has on others is Mercutio. Mercutio is Romeo’s best friend who always tries to cheer him up. However when he is fatally wounded by Tybalt in a fight between Tybalt and Romeo he tells them, “A plague o’both your houses!” (3.1.106). The people in each house hate each other with such a passion that they are oblivious what their actions do to the innocent people around them. Tybalt was so caught up in his hate for the Montagues that he did not
Gregor now realizes his father shows no sympathy towards Gregor and instead punishes him for something he has no control over. Gregor began to resent his father for throwing household items at him, squashing him like a bug. Even his beloved sister Grete began irritating Gregor by removing all of his belonging from his room, leaving him with nothing. The cruelty performed on Gregor by his own family sends him into a dark pit of despair. With nothing to live for he began to slowly end his life, making one final sacrifice for the ones he loves
When the creature was just brought to life he was confused about the surroundings around him. Victor never explained to the creature about his situation. Humans were afraid of the creature and did not want to be near him. The creature did not have a companion or any other human being that felt the same manner as him and grew each day more angry and full of revenge towards Frankenstein. Mary Shelley did have a husband but she felt that he was not a responsible companion and doing his share of the relationship.
He is so used to these walls, and so scared of the outside world where he’d rather kill his friend and stay in the prison than go out into the world. “These walls are funny. First, you hate ‘em, then you get used to ‘em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them. That’s institutionalized.” [Red, The Shawshank Redemption].
I just wish he wasn’t there” (Salinger 172). From this quote, it obviously that Holden misses his brother Allie. He always recalls this memory and suffers the stress of his brother’s death. The kid James Castle’s suicide reaction also makes Holden suffer which can show by the following quote, “He was dead, and his teeth, and blood, were all over the place, and nobody would even go near him” (188). This blood scene stimulate Holden which has negative effect on Holden’s psyche.
Pap, Huck's father doesn't support the idea of having Huck educated because he doesn't want his son to be superior. It is very difficult for Huck to get used to a life that he never had, which is agreeing with society's rules. He lived almost all his childhood as a homeless kid, wondering around nature where facing no rules or obligations. The only bad thing about him being so disconnected from society is that he is always feeling lonely and depressed. It is understandable that he feels this way because neither his mom or his father is there to take care of him or show affection.
The Creature is thrust into a culture that he is unfamiliar with and forced into exile without ever having the opportunity to present his true self. Early in his life, the Creature realizes his place in society. He is despised by everyone he comes into contact with, causing him unending misery in his already unhappy life (86). Each human he encounters flees from him in fear, no matter how kind and compassionate he strives to be. Just like a child, the Creature must try and fail several times before he can ever have hopes of thriving.
One of their similarities is that they both have neglectful and abusive parents. This example fits Dally because his parents don’t care where he is or what he is doing. “Shoot, my old man don’t give a hang whether i’m in a car wreck or drunk in the gutter” (88 or 90). If Dally’s parents care about him, then he shouldn’t be so mean and aggressive, and he shouldn’t have been put up in jail at the age of ten. This example fits Johnny, as well.
They both relate to each other because they can 't trust anyone. The book Monster Due on Maple Street no one can 't trust each other because they try to figure out who the monster is. But in Touching Spirit Bear Cole can 't trust anyone because his dad always beats him up and his mom doesn 't do anything. So in both stories they can 't trust anyone at all. That is why they relate
