He is dirty and unlearned, having done poorly at school. Before the attempted patricide, he lived a life of cringing submission to his father. However, this reality stands in stark contrast to the tale he tells, of an act so unnatural, so divorced from the stifling constraints of traditional morality, that it sets Pegeen’s imagination alight. Though she is observant enough to recognize what he truly is, she is so blinded by the potential of his tale that she blinds herself to this reality. What this reveals is that she values above all else the "fiery" nature of language and words.
So, Louisa asks for help from Mr. Gradgrind due to the amount of ignorance in emotions, “all that I know is, your philosophy and your teachings will now save me.

The undisclosed narrator describes himself as a nasty and unwanted man as can be seen in the first sentence when he states, “I am a sick man…I am a spiteful man” (Dostoyevsky 707). With such an anguished narrator, the audience begins to question what could have caused this man to hate himself and his life.
