Bernard would always question the society he lives in and how they did things, but he would also contribute the ways the Brave New World and conform occasionally. Although he thinks this way and questions his society with the people around him, he conforms and allows himself to fit in with society. Bernard is not an ordinary alpha plus, he is unfortunately short for an alpha plus and alpha plus is the upper class of the society. Early in the novel, we notice that Bernard seems to be a misfit. Bernard eavesdrops on Henrys conversation where they talk about Lenina as if she were a mere sex slave.
Jane Austen illustrated through Mr. Darcy’s character, how people judge others based on reputation. This is great satire that shows Jane’s purpose of the novel, how people in 1700s cares so much about appearance, class, and reputation. When Mr. Darcy first meets Elizabeth Bennet at the ball, he did not like her only because he thought

The family goes through many trials as poor immigrants, struggling to get wealth, happiness, and opportunities to succeed in America. Sinclair talks about socialism and its benefits.

Introduction “...there is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, …I simply am not there.” -Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho (1991) How and why does Bret Easton Ellis conflate the characterisation of serial consumerist and serial killer in Patrick Bateman from American Psycho? American Psycho is a 1991 Bret Easton Ellis novel focusing around the antihero Patrick Bateman. Patrick Bateman is a Wall Street investment banker leading a double life as a serial killer.

Both the book and the movie bring themes of both acceptance, individuality, and self doubt. Lacie from Black Mirror wants to be just like everyone that is a 4 point and up, and Bernard from A Brave New World wants to be like everyone else because he is afraid of being true to himself. The book and the movie both critique our intimate lives, and they make you think about your true character and values. It makes you wonder if you only care about what people think, or what’s best for you, whatever that may be. The book and the movie give us examples of characters that live to impress others.
In 1984, Winston Smith distinguishes himself from the rest of the brainwashed, dystopian society for he can remember the past and therefore recognizes the flaws of the ruling Inner Party. However, he struggles to remain true to his opposition of the Party and finds himself following his fellow citizens. Similarly, in his memoir Night, Elie Wiesel shares his journey through concentration camps where pressure from guards and fellow prisoners impacts his inner compass. These literary works along with modern life experiences lead me to believe that motivation comes more from public influence than one’s own morals. Throughout his novel 1984, Orwell proves that motivation emerges from public influence.
In the same way, Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice illustrates that those who are prideful often use the first impressions they have of others to affect their decisions. Elizabeth Bennet uses her first impressions of Mr. Darcy, Mr. Wickham, and Mr. Collins to make quick decisions. When Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth first meet at the Meryton Ball, Mr. Darcy criticises Elizabeth, knowing that she is right behind him listening. Mr. Darcy explains to Mr.
Before Isabel leaves, she tells him that she realizes that finding a suitable flat in new York is not easy, and Mrs. March adds that she will not be difficult anymore when it comes to apartments (Howells 77). However, after she said that, she gives him an endless list of demands concerning the apartment that are superficial, such as a pleasant janitor and a flat below the third floor. The fact that the narrator mentions this entire list of demands can be proof that the narrator mocks this whole situation because she does not stay true to her word to not be demanding, especially after her experience with poverty. Furthermore, Michelle Kohler agrees that the narrator is inconsistent. Sometimes, he is almost objective and remains
