In summary, he was forcefully separated from his family, bared the death of the only motivation he had and was left to live with the nightmares of the atrocious doing of Hitler and his Nazis. Elie’s innocence was taken alongside everything else he had. Instead of remembering his childhood and laughing, he prays one day he’ll forget, forget what he was forced to see. Moreover, forget what was taken from him. Elie had undergone an immense amount of pain albeit the fact that many think of WW2 but don’t mind much of it’s events.
Following his death, Elie was completely desensitized to anymore pain, he said that it “no longer mattered. Since [his] father’s death, nothing mattered to [him] anymore”(113). There is a significant change of diction from the beginning of the novel compared to near the end. What was panic and fear was changed into carelessness and
Humping around the lake alone with no one to vent about how the war. Even with all the ribbons and a combat infantryman’s badge which he obtain through his tour with the pressure of his father. All that meant nothing; he didn’t earn them or deserved them. He felt responsible for Kiowa’s death. When he pondered about the tragic event, he recalls “the worst part, “was the smell” (139).
“She said you started crying.” Heat flamed Tom’s cheeks, and he shuffled uncomfortably. “That’s bullshit,” he mumbled, his eyes refusing to meet his friend’s inquisitive stare. “She’s a fucking liar.” “Is she?” Penhall asked softly. The genuine concern inflected in his friend’s voice completely caught Tom off guard, and he could feel himself losing control. Choking back a sob, he turned and stumbled toward the door, but before he made it halfway across the room, two muscular arms wrapped him in a tight embrace.
In reality, he is disgusted by the sight of his creation so he abandons it leaving it all alone in the world without any guidance and runs away to the next room. Victor himself suffered from being a social outcast and now he bestowed the same feeling onto the creature by abandoning him. By treating the creature as an outcast, “he will become wicked … divide him, a social being, from society, and you impose upon him the irresistible obligations—malevolence and selfishness” (Caldwell). Not only is Victor selfish for abandoning his creature but he is shallow as well. Instead of realizing that he achieved his goal of bringing life to an inanimate body he runs way because of how hideous it is.
Since there were so many “young men her father had driven away,” it can be inferred that Emily’s father was a very unwelcoming man who did not believe any male was good enough to meet the Grierson standards (Faulkner 55). As stated by Victor Strandberg, “driving away her suitors so as to keep her housekeeping services for himself, Emily 's father has ruined her chances for a normal life” (par. 3). After the death of Mr. Grierson, all that Emily had left was herself and the house because of the seclusion her father created. However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her.
On page 783 Charlotte Perkins Gillman writes "I 've got out at last," said I, "In spite of you and Jane. And I 've pulled off most of the paper, so you can 't put me back!" "Now why should that man have fainted? But he did, and right across my path by the wall, so that I had to creep over him every time!" This might of gave a feel that she did not care about her husband, but only because she did not do anything to help him when he fainted.
Now because of this, that kid started shipping us. At first, both of us ignored this and continued on with our lives, but he came up with ship names, and that was when all hell broke loose. Both of us told him to shut up, but I was the one who really got pissed. I was in no mood to go through what I went through in elementary. You simply told him to stop and ignored him, even when he drew a heart with both our initials on it.
Troy states that his father was greedy and would put his own personal needs above the needs of the family. This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil. The way Troy 's father treated him would cause Troy to run away at a young age and would be forced to steal and rob.
Billy gave his power and life to tralfamadorians who control which moments from his life he goes to next. “When I myself hear that somebody is dead, I simply shrug and say what the Tralfamadorians say about dead people, which is "So it goes". (Page 27) He learns from the tralfamadorians and not his experiences, he completely lost his contact with the world and people dying around him. The war swallowed Billy whole and consumed his ability to control his life. As a child, he also lost power over his own life when he was unconscious after being pushed in a pool.
Daisy is simply the vehicle for Gatsby’s impossible dream, and not really a person to Gatsby at all. Even Nick projects only what he wants to see upon her, after one of Gatsby’s parties. He sees her distaste for the party and says, “She saw something awful in the very simplicity she failed to understand” (114). However, Nick is misinterprets Daisy’s sentiment, she sees an awfulness in the lack of simplicity- the showiness of money repels her and her image of Gatsby in those simple days when they first met fully contradicts what she sees now. But Nick sees only what he wants to see.
