Our main character suffers from a “temporary nervous depression - a slight hysterical tendency” and, although can be psycho-analysed to be correct, suffers from a more intense mental illness than led on which is then perceived to be the underlying monster. With all this in mind, she is confined and removed from society by her husband and begins to lose her sanity. Even though most people would claim that the husband may be the monster, he actually does try to help her, but through what is considered outdated and obscene ways, but at the time was thought to help. She even talks about another doctor, but worse. This alludes the reader to remember the conditions of how mentally ill humans were treated and how most people would have to resort to mental institutions.
So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported. To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich. I think kids nowadays could learn a thing or two from Esperanza about working hard, not having an attitude, and respecting/ helping people not as wealthy as
In fahrenheit 451, Mildred wants to kill herself because she is very unhappy. Some might argue that she is just sick, but that isn’t all because she depicts signs that she is depressed, lonely, and lacks the feeling of love. This could all be causes of society having a negative effect on Mildred and her wellbeing; technology, obsession, and being unable to cope with her emotion are all factors that play into Mildred life. Fahrenheit 451 burns through the thoughts of readers as controversy spills out of the pages. Guy Montag, firefighter, husband, and a truth seeker, goes through multiple barriers trying to figure out the questions no one dares to ask.
Adriana Hidalgo Mr. Madin English 5th of January 2016 Illusion The absence of love, happiness and the distraction provided by technology harms human life in a way that many would agree that it harms humans more than it benefits them. The illusion of a perfect society can anesthetize people from what makes them human–their feelings expressed towards one another. In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, denying one's feelings can lead to sadness and depression which is a perfect reason why people in the society of 451 commit suicide.The illusion of happiness experienced by Montag, the protagonist of the story, Millie, Montag's wife, and everyone else in this society makes them oblivious about the unhappiness and emptiness in their lives causing them to act numb towards one another. The loss of feelings and sympathy contributes to the illusion of a perfect world where people are “happy”. This is a world where the only way to fill up emptiness is by using technology as a distraction from reality and the dissimulation that there is nothing wrong.
The citizens are so blinded by the ignorance that they refuse to see acting like a human being normal. Another way ignorance is shown through dystopian societies is with propaganda. People are expected to believe the government wants, no questions asked. An example of how the government uses propaganda is when Montag is wanted by the police. They use media and television to show that they have killed Montag even though he is not dead: “They’re faking.
After the D.B.’s departure, he started to trust people less and to be opened to them. Holden got depressed and mentally unstable, because of Allie’s death. And Phoebe was the one who filled his life with sense, and who supported him. She was like his “catcher in the rye”: convinced him to refuse the thoughtless action of leaving the town, that could ruin his future life. I believe that each person got influenced by his family or by people around him in some way, and it can be not only a positive impact on him but also a negative
His mother’s pseudo-listening and insulated listening often creates a negative climate between them. Conrad comes to the realization that his mother dislikes him because of the minimal attention she gives him, thus his doctor’s explanation, “don’t expect her to love you more than she can.” She has completely insulated herself from topics that cause her to contemplate the past, and when the topic discomforts her, she becomes a defensive listener and takes offense from minor remarks. Similarly, his friends who struggle with stage hogging make Conrad feel unwelcomed and slowly kill their friendship. However, poor listening also sometimes creates a positive climate. For example, Conrad takes his father’s selective listening as a sign of caring, although he doesn’t come to appreciate it until the end of the story.
Before he had isolated himself by choice, but now it’s as if he doesn’t have an option anymore. Raskolnikov has done something so wrong that he no longer feels like a member of humanity, which is why he specifies a “human word”. Raskolnikov’s guilt comes from the need to rejoin society. That is why his guilt fluctuates so much, but becomes much worse when his rationale for the murder is put into question. In part 3 chapter 6, Raskolnikov has a dream, in which he tries to kill Alyona but fails and she laughs at him.
This ‘act’ that Raymond constantly puts on implies that he lost hope of Maycomb ever understanding his want to be with a colored woman. He lost so much hope that he had to give a reason to Maycomb to blame the decisions he makes whilst being drunk, otherwise it would leave Maycomb in a state of turmoil. Like Scout says, “.. a being who deliberately perpetrated fraud against himself’ (Lee 268), he lost all hope and belief that the adults of Maycomb would understand, therefore it resulted him telling it to children because they understand. Furthermore, Mayella Ewell is another character who lost hope in the residents of Maycomb. Bob Ewell, her father, undeniably abused Mayella throughout her livelihood and was brought into question and confrontation during court.
But if you are telling someone that they should marry you because he or she will be full of regret, then I don’t think the person will be very happy, thus they will decline. It is like in Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. Alison was arrogant and mean and hated by many. She didn’t care what people thought, because she thought she was better than everybody. She said some awful things to people; awful enough to get her killed.
