The way the director presented this character bothered me as Edward’s physical appearance resulted in the society abandoning him and not accepting him for who he is beyond his appearance. His face is scarred, his clothes are dark and leathery with complicated buckles, his eyes are distant, his hair is long and unkempt, and his leather apparatus reflects his strength of his hands as weapons. “He created a man, gave him insides, a heart, everything; well, almost everything.” Edward is a dark figure that is separated from the rest of the colourful society due to his appearance. His pale skin reveals that he doesn’t leave his castle and remains isolated and alone. The idea the director gave off is that Edward Scissorhands is a danger to the faultless society due to his
However, Franky felt like she didn’t fit in the family and town she only felt like that because she couldn’t get in the club with all them girls, and her father really didn’t give Franky any attention. In spite of, Franky also struggle with her family because after her brother get married he goes back in the army, and she doesn't get to see him, and her father is never home all she need is some family loving. Meanwhile Bernice did felt unwanted and not needed, but the soldier felt lonely in the town. Not only, he was in the town for 3 days and nobody had talk to him because nobody didn’t know him. Furthermore, an outsider is a character that is set apart from the established cultural pattern.
It is even more perplexing that the senator is there to attend the funeral of a man who lived in the town, an apparent nobody, Tom Doniphon. As ordinary citizen 's it is obvious that curiousity takes its course when an important person whether a politician or celebrity comes our way in the absence of an important event taking place. It is believed that "these" kind of people only visit the places where ordinary citizen 's live when there is a
it is used to show the nervous attitudes that everyone has about the factory and once again expressing what is unknown about the ginormous factory. The Buckets learn very little from Grandpa George’s stories about Wonka and his reasoning for closing the factory the long shot shows the still present uncertainty. Furthermore, longshot is used in Edward Scissorhands when Peg is in Edward’s room in the mansion before she meets Edward. Long shot is used to express the mysterious and intimidating nature of
People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
(Lee 9) However, one house is the outcast- Boo Radley’s House. Although he has not been seen, many “neighborhhod legends” have been told about tragic events Boo Radley has done(Lee 9). This powerful message shows that society explains why outsiders exist and why they are not accepted in the town. Harper Lee shows the great power of an outsider through his words more than the poem by TheSilent Loundness, as Lee shows us that society is the blame for the creation of outsiders. Although the outsiders of Maycomb have tried to join society, they will always be captive of the town who wants nothing to do with them.
People, who are different, are often ostracized for being themselves and are considered outcasts. For example, the movie, Edward Scissorhands, is a story about a young man, who had scissors for hands. Based on his appearance, people were scared of him. They thought he would try to hurt them. Not many people tried to get to know him, but almost everyone made negative assumptions about him.
Because of Ewell’s reputation, society does not trust him. Even the normally polite and courteous Atticus even refers to him and his family as “the disgrace of Maycomb for three generations” (Lee 30). They live in a dump, and “they were people, but they lived like animals” (Lee 30). The Ewells’ previous actions resulted in them being referred to as the “disgrace” of the entire town, meaning that they are not trusted and are looked down upon. Because of this, Bob Ewell does not have a good relationship with the society around him.
Without a doubt, the biggest struggle in an individual’s life is to show his true face in a society that only acknowledges those who wear flawless façade. In Damon Knight’s The Handler, Harry is faced with the same ordeal, as he struggles to show his true self, while the people around him pressure him to hide inside his attractive mechanical façade named Pete. Throughout the story, Knight uses characters such as, Harry, George and Pete to express one of the major flaws in society. Indeed, through these characters Knight argues that society only offers acceptance towards those who satisfy their arbitrary ideals and forces those who do not to conform to it. To begin with, Knight uses Harry’s failed attempt to stay comfortable in his own skin to validate his argument.
