Failure to maintain a friendship is displayed through “friendship, stretched over time, grows thin, then one day snaps with a popping sound” (Poetry Foundation 3-4). The friendship is strained and suddenly ruptures, becoming irreparable. This reflects his inability to “sustain continuity...in relationships”(Poets 1). Reinstating his relationship failure, Hoagland writes “breaking a thing while trying to get it open --a marriage, for example”(Poetry Foundation 6-8). Just as Hoagland is attempting to commit to a relationship, the marriage splits.
Walter started questioning my every move. Never could trust me to stay home or anything. In my book kind of maybe a lot crazy and weird.

1. The situational archetype of “Rebirth” relates very well to the novel Fifth Business.

During Catcher, the whole story is set as a first person recount from the view of Holden Caulfield, but during this recount, there are some small instances of Holden thinking of his life as a child. The recount is from Holden’s point of view as he is obtaining psychiatric help, after he has been found to have mental issues. The majority of these small flashback moments during the text are about Holden’s younger brother Allie, who passed away with Leukemia when Holden was a few years younger. Holden holds strong and happy memories of his younger brother’s life, and during this extended flashback, he tells the author about his brother, and although Allie does not take part within the story, the audience learns lots about him. Holden is very much traumatised by the death of his younger brother, and this traumatic event has helped in making Caulfield the socially awkward person that he is during the recount.

While in the novel, with Tom, you can easily notice that at the beginning of his life, he moves from one job to another in lacking the required connections to make any success socially, professionally, or personally, and as a result, we saw a self-loathing, distrusting, and watchful character. I think Tom runs from his poverty and self-loathing through escaping from his own identity and mimicking other personalities. Secondly, as I mentioned Macbeth was a brave and heroic character with power, before he met witches, and told him that he will become the Thane of Cawdor as a prophecy, “…will be king hereafter”. With his wife greedy and
A couple weeks ago, because he was suffering a severe case of utter boredom, he decided to try and draw something he had never drawn before. With his pencil and pen ready, he brought out his drawing book and started experimenting. The picture he drew was based on a fantasy novel he read a long time ago. It told a story about a young boy, who was chosen to defeat the evil ‘Demon King’, set out for his journey and blah, blah, blah. Long story short, the demon king is defeated, world is saved, story over!
