This extreme isolation is prevalent in Frankenstein as seen with Victor isolating himself from his family by moving to Ingolstadt and even staying in his apartment to study and create his creature. This isolation caused him to be deathly ill and without the help from social contact and going outside in the world he probably would have died. Isolation can have a heavy impact on an individual 's life and “vast evidence suggests that social isolation can threaten one 's psychological health, indicated by an elevated risk of depression, loneliness, and suicide among people with few or weak social ties.”(Tilburg). This is similar to the creatures very few ties with people and through this he was led to live a very

Jean Valjean, a character from the novel Les Misérables by Victor Hugo, was a victim of this cruel system. He had just been released from prison, thus leaving his clothing torn and his face ragged.

Both characters inhabit ramshackle ruins of houses that have been a constant in the towns for as long as the townsfolk can remember; based off the exterior senescent, the townsfolk make unfounded inferences about the Radleys and Miss Lottie. As the Radleys live in a house that “had long ago darkened to the color of the slate-gray yard around it”, so Boo Radley must have deteriorated to a shadow of the person he used to be (Lee). Because the townsfolk can only see the exterior of the house, they use

From the figure lying within the opening in the wall that looks like an old cabinet He is very pale and lifeless. His lips are darker than the rest of his body and his mouth is slightly opened which lead me to think he was dead.
The Administration on Aging terms abuse as “the willful infliction of injury, unreasoning imprisonment, intimidation or cruel retribution with causing of harm, pain, or mental anguish, or mental illness” (C., 2003).

Refugees arrive suffering from acute post-traumatic anxiety from camps where basic amenities and civility were rare. Their new home is culturally unfamiliar, cold, and far from their ancestors, all isolating experiences that further alienate them from their neighbors. There is a need to create
The contemporary societies in which we live are built upon the notion that excess is good. As members of these societies influenced by this concept every day, we have become impervious to the idea that excess is not always good, in fact it can be quite bad. We all know someone who suffers from an addiction, someone who is living with depression, that millions of people are starving, and a friend who is struggling with an eating disorder, all products of excess.
