"For your file," he said, "in case you decide to be angry with me." The rules don’t even have to be enforced on the citizens in this novel. The rules are self-imposed this may be because the government controls the society with fear so the citizens are afraid of what might happen if they do not follow the rules. Our modern society is different from
He is saying that he left everything for his relentless search of knowledge and forgetting about his physical. I think that his suffering is do to the doubts that he had about life. When Victor gave life to the monster, he couldn’t believe the appearance of the monster that he just run away. This was another problem that caused his suffering because of his absences on taking care of the creature. Because of his lack of human appearance, society making something bad awake inside him rejects the monster.
Have you ever encountered someone whose life endured a great amount of disillusion or failure? These aspects relate to each other-one might cause the other- and create tragedy. Jay Gatsby and Willy Loman the main characters in the books The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Death Of A Salesman by Arthur Miller both lived lives that did not meet their own goals. Both Willy and Gatsby created their own destruction when their chances at achieving their objectives were unattainable. Willy Loman lived a more tragic life because of the constant change he wanted to achieve that never played out in his favor.
During Jazz Age people’s spiritual values, traditions and customs were decaying. Lust had took over them and they could easily betray their spouses, just like Myrtle, Daisy and Tom in Great Gatsby. As myrtle’s sister had mentioned to Nick “neither of them can stand the person they’re married to” (p. 23). She proposed that if no one is happy in their marriage they should get divorce and get into a relationship that would satisfy them, because “you can’t live forever, you can’t live forever” (p. 24). Myrtle also suggested that morality has been long dead inside men and they “will cheat you every time.
Amir’s particular body language shows that he wants this deed to be seen by no one. Thus, glancing towards either direction to make sure that ‘the coast is clear’. He deprives Hassan and Ali from the house they have served faithfully for a long time, thereby stealing the truth from Hassan and depriving them of a home they knew well. Amir is driven by both the greed for his father’s attention and the guilt of being helpless when Hassan was raped.

Throughout the story his work ethic begins to decline. His first protest to work was when the narrator, Bartleby’s boss, hastily calls on Bartleby in expectancy to examine some of his work; “’I would prefer not to’” he says and this baffles the narrator (Melville, 53). This resistance and defiance Bartleby presents is a clue that something is off. The statement ‘I would prefer not to’ is essentially Bartleby saying that he is completely able to do what is asked but simply does not want to. This is showing a decline in motivation and productivity.
As The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen defies the capital for the betterment of her people, so do many other literary figures. Some of these characters include Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Sophocles’s Antigone. Both of these characters convey the theme of rejecting society, as they rebel against society or authority to stay true to themselves. Huckleberry ignores society because he wants his independence and doesn’t want to be held back by anyone. On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city.
Neither he nor his wife would admit to his lechery in the aforementioned questioning, their reputation would be destroyed, even if it meant that the truth was shown. In Act Two, John has an outburst at his wife’s arrest, seeing as it would deface his family name saying to the court officials, “God will not let you wash your hands of this!”(204). Proctor blamed the court for his family legacy being ruined. In the last scene of the play, Proctor perfectly sums up the importance of the legacy behind the name. Proctor cries out, “I have given you my soul; leave me my name!” (240).
Being deemed as an outsider creates people to mentally hate themselves and feel that there is something wrong with them. Perry has went his entire life being judged, unaccepted and hurt multiple times. He had resentment of society and jealousy of those, like the Clutters, being everything that he could not be. Perry did not have anything against the Clutter’s, “I didn’t want to harm the man. I thought he was a very nice gentleman.
To prove himself to the chief and his men, Santiago was to figure out how to turn himself into the wind. At first, he was very skeptical because he had no idea how to approach this problem; he is not like the Alchemist and doesn’t believe he could be. Also, he had to give them all of his money that he had saved, so he was a bit angry at the Alchemist and not at all excited that he had to prove anything to the
