“A bookworm with strong homoerotic urges, a fascination with guns and crime and a natural inclination to break every rule he could find, there seemed to be no way [William] Burroughs could ever fit into normal society” (Asher). The Midwestern (St. Louis) and upper class lifestyle did not fit who Burroughs really was. After graduating from Harvard, Burroughs’ parents accepted their son’s need to find his place in society, so they “continued to support him financially as he experimented with various lifestyles” (Asher). Burroughs was a rebel figure who had trouble finding his way. He traveled around a lot and fell into drugs and substance abuse to free himself from the built-up conventions of society.
Paul experiences this deep sorrow and depression because he feels that he has been completely robbed of his sentiment.

Ethan would quietly lament this loss for as long as he lives. Not fully being able to express his true nature, a man with a refined mind who can’t show the world how he feels, and what he’s is passionate about. This can also be shown when the narrator states “His unfinished studies had given form to this sensibility and even in his unhappiest moments field and sky spoke to him with a deep and powerful persuasion”(Wharton 11). Second is Ethan hastily marring Zeena when she came to take care of his mother when she became sick, throughout the book you can easily pick up on the disconnect between the two. Although it is reasonable why he did so.
Let me begin by saying that Andy had so much to live for but instead all he did was build up his guilt which affected him at school, home and mostly in end. Literally, there was no happy moments. All, there ever was sad, depressing and distressing moments. I mean he couldn’t take the pain and the pressure that was coming along his way. So, it all ended in a dramatic twist.

Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter….” stated Jon Krakauer. The author of “Into the Wild” based on a man that had family problems, many of these things led to him to drive himself away from his family. I'm my perspective, it became a mental illness like stubbornness,sense of idealism, and crazy. Into the wild I believe is a state of mind where your mind can go and all the things will disappear like the excerpt “Nature” written by Ralph W. Emerson. Christopher McCandless was running from the expectation that his parents had for him and all the problems that his family had.
But at the end of the novel, we see that he is a kind man that has been shut up his entire life and doesn’t like being in the spotlight (both literally and metaphorically). Furthermore, many people in Maycomb are extremely classist and believe that anyone that is below them shouldn’t be seen with the common folk. Aunt Alexandra is a character that shows this; “She had said Indeed Not, but this time she would give her reasons: ‘But I want to play with Walter, Aunty, why can’t I?’ She took off her glasses and stared at me. ‘I’ll tell you why,’ she said. ‘Because—he—is¬—trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.

In the novel "Lord of the Flies", the boys attempted to create a working society with hunters, a chief, where everyone could be safe, and more importantly feel safe. This society though didn 't work out; there were too many outlying problems, like Jack wanting desperately to best Ralph, or Roger being a secret sociopath, or the fact that throughout the entire book they were terrified of some beast, which was really just them all along. In "Lord of the Flies" the boys are so blinded by terror and excitement that they don 't take any time to clear their heads, think, and realize that what they have been doing is completely wrong. In the book one character, Simon, realized that the beast that they had been scared of the whole time had really been them, and when he tries to tell the others what he has discovered, they beat him to death with spears before anyone can hear or understand what he was trying so hard to tell them. In the book one of the characters, Ralph, says "Things are breaking up.

Shin was trying hard to be a nice person, but he cannot deal with the guilt of knowing that he did some horrible things back at Camp 14. “He told Kyung that he ‘disgusts’ himself, that he cannot escape dreams of his mother’s death, that he cannot forgive himself for leaving his father behind in the camp, and that he hates himself for crawling over Park’s body.” (page 182) He finds it impossible to let go of what he did in the past. Sometimes, he even feels like he is still in the camp. “When he struggled to fall asleep in the group house or when nightmares woke him up, he crawled out of his bunk and slept as he had in the camp- on a bare floor with a blanket.” (page
