(Kail, 2012) We can assume that in Emma her case there is an identity crisis, “the awareness of our ultimate aloneness can be frightening, and some clients may attempt to avoid accepting their aloneness and isolation.” (Corey, 2009, p. 144) Emma’s mother is so occupied with her own problems that Emma deals with a role confusion as she is no longer the child but she needs to take care of her brother. “Identity issues come in two forms, personal and social.
Not only does Hester feel bad for the pain she caused them, but she also has to live with the guilt that she can’t tell them the whole truth. She continues to hide the identity of the father from both Chillingworth and Pearl which makes life much harder for Hester. Hester says “What questions are those? There are so many things in this world that a child must not ask about. what no eye of the minister's heart?
The “ragged slab” is a symbol of what Mr Croom had become. He had built this secret up and made it so sturdy, but during this same process he had torn himself apart, becoming a worn and useless board. Both of these symbols help to make Proulx’s point that if we do not let someone in through our attic doors we could end up like Mr Croom, built up so thick that we go crazy. And when we finally break open it is because we have worn ourselves down so much with this big secret and had no moral support through the
Moreover, mere words alone are a far cry from living through the horrendous cruelty being played out on a daily basis. The horrific brutality proved that a number of people were disconnected to a simple conception of" love thy neighbor" while claiming to be children of God. It is wholly unfathomable the acts of depravity within the soul of another human. For the preceding generations these acts of the past make it almost impossible to comprehend. Ida B.
“There are many costs to modern society…but the most dangerous loss may be the community,” wrote Sebastian Junger in his book Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging. The genius of Junger reveals that even with all of its benefits, modern society will crumble from lack of a community experience. “The beauty and the tragedy of the modern world is that it eliminates many situations that require people to demonstrate a commitment to the collective good,” he writes. But the most disturbing part of this book is not that it shows that we lack community, but that we are so far gone from any real community that we need pain and suffering to suffice. Junger points to instances where people have been far happier under prolonged situations of extreme hardship, like in warzones and during natural disasters.
The author Cormac McCarthy just seemed to give us an abundance of tragedy and violence as the father of the boy keeps trying to tell him that they’ll make it even though everything seemed to be bleak. Anybody who used to be anybody was no longer important anymore, no matter what your occupation used to be in the old world. This newer world seems to be extremely backwards and even one of my favorite quotes in the book proves it, “You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.” It shows that nothing in the old world matters since all you can seem to remember are the dreadful things in order for you to know that in this time and age the situation are dangerous, which makes you push yourself in order to survive. Since their new world was post- apocalyptic, there is no more relying on law enforcement agencies or in humanity either. When things begin to get rough, people take to extreme measures to make sure they can survive even if it means turning to cannibalism to stay alive.
The narrator experiences grave racism which promotes him to change his definition of himself when he travels through a series of communities. Also, the Liberty Paints Plant prevents the narrator in fulfilling his wishes to identify himself due to the racism he undergoes. The Brotherhood initial helps the narrator but as time passes they completely betray him causing his identity to change. A person's identity will always be an essential part of their lifetime. Without an identity, people become lifeless and invisible.
Levi stated “To destroy a man is difficult, almost as difficult as to create one: it has not been easy, nor quick” (If this is a Man, 156). It is still hard to define exactly what humanity is and what it means to lose humanity, because humanity is defined by the person and only the person can understand when they lost oneself. In many cases it is too late when they discover this, such of that of the dying SS soldier. But for others they may once again gain it back, such as that of the prisoners or even the SS soldier realizing over a year later the crime he committed was unmoral and inhumane. However, no matter if a person loses their humanity forever, or they gain it back eventually, that person will never be the same.
In such a cruel place such as the one they were in, it is deemed to be impossible. Even though Elie’s connection to God was strong, it was still broken. So many traumatic events happened at the camp, it is almost impossible to keep track of them all. Being forced to witness all these horrible things everyday, with no sign of God made Elie question if there even is one. If there was a God he’d be trying to help the innocent Jews escape or at least something, and if he was not then should he even be regarded as one, was Elie’s view on the whole situation.
Nigel having “Too much cruelty, too little patience.” Is something that can change him and others that surround him, whether it be him exploding at someone or not, he is a prime example of shaping yourself however not in a positive way. The novel suggests that perhaps it isn’t just the problems children face but rather who they face and surround themselves with and the relations they build that shape them, because without people to cause them how would there be problems otherwise? This concept is paired with the idea that the way the child behaves may affect how they are shaped and influenced by others and may influence people that surround them and it doesn’t always have to be in a good way. So in conclusion it is not just what they go through, it is who they go through and who they are that influence children to be the people they
