At this time Charlie was unintelligent, so he did not understand the situation. He was clearly being mocked by his “friends” and other people for the unusual ways he does things because he was different from them. Even though Charlie did things that were weird to them, it wasn’t right for them to laugh at him just because he was different. Another part in “Flowers for Algernon”, Charlie witnesses a situation where someone else was mocked. “A few of the rowdier customers kept up the remarks, amusing themselves at his expense … and finally broke into an uncertain grin at the jokes which he obviously did not understand,” (Daniel Keyes, page 13).
The unjust treatment that the creature received from humankind was harsh and unreasonable as he wasn’t allowed the opportunity to prove his intentions were far from malicious. His loneliness, isolation and injustice from those he tried to befriend turned him into an actual monster, evidently his perspective and personality changed after being excluded. The monster had been treated unfairly by humanity “I desired love and fellowship and I was spurned. Was there no injustice in this? … Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind sinned against me?”
Fortunato is a very rude person. I believe that Fortunato is more arrogant than rude. The story talks about how Fortunato hurts Montresor a lot by insulting him thousands of times.

For example, Boo Radley is not accepted because he does not fit into the social normalization that he should.. This is obvious by the way Jem describes Boo when he says, “There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped and he drooled most of the time” (Lee 16). Jem describes Boo as if he is a monster simply because Jem and the other people are unable to accept the fact that Boo is different. In reality, Boo is a great person; all of these characteristics are made up.
In Ray Bradbury’s, Something Wicked this Way Comes, William Halloway frequently expressed anxious and fearful tones due to his inexperience in dangerous situations. Will’s anxious tone is apparent when he and Jim stopped by the Theatre and he “…swallowed hard…” (Bradbury27) When someone has, “…swallowed hard…” (27) they are usually nervous and guilty, indicating anxiety. Will’s reaction at the Theatre demonstrates an anxious tone because he knew he wasn't supposed to be there and if he was caught peeking into a brothel he would be punished. Also, being found there would ruin his respectable reputation that he valued highly.
In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t.

This blemish generated audience pity, subsequently because of his cockiness, Oedipus and his clouded mind, unfortunately caused him to be extremely paranoid. As Oedipus creeps closer to the truth, his madness increases due to the fact that Oedipus cannot admit to himself the evil things he has done. When Tiresias finally reveals the truth to Oedipus, he cannot accept the truth. Instead Oedipus chooses to believe that Tiresias’ words are some elaborate plot to over throw him, “Are these inventions Creon’s work, or yours (page 14, Oedipus Rex)?” Oedipus’ downfall is due to his hamartia pity inducing because the viewer knows that Oedipus is a morally righteous man with a huge ego.

Similar to a romantic hero, a civil rights movement; such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and present day feminism, also reject society’s conventions and step outside societal boundaries. They may not follow current law, but they fight for the law, in which they believe in. In Rostand’s writing of Cyrano de Bergerac, one can see that the man character, Cyrano, possessed traits of a romantic hero because he was moody and arrogant, lonely and self-governed, and has a willingness to sacrifice himself.
