Arthur Radley, colloquially known as Boo Radley, is a reclusive man who refrains from leaving his house. This is a significant social faux pas in Maycomb, and as a result, he is highly gossiped about by the townspeople and negative rumors constantly circulate regarding him and how he is mentally ill and should be feared. At the beginning of the novel, Scouts perception of Boo Radley is no different. As the novel progresses Scout slowly begins to empathise more with Boo; and she begins to fear him less after various events in the novel, such as the times Boo leaves Scout and Jem presents (59-60) and the time Boo places a blanket on Scout 's shoulders during the fire at Miss Maudie’s house (71-72). Scout’s empathy towards Boo Radley is really only fully developed by the end of the novel when Boo saves Jem and Scout from Bob Ewell.
. it’s because he wants to stay inside.” (304) Jem realizes that with all the hate in the world Boo probably stays inside to avoid all of that and just wants some peace. At this point the readers view on Boo Radley has change from a psychopathic mad man to a kind boy who secretly cares for Jem and Scout. The next and final change in the readers view of Boo happen when he finally come outside of his house and openly meet the children for the first time in the story. This happens at the very end of the book when Jem and Scout are walking back for a school play and are attacked by Bob Ewell.
George also protects him from the people that would make a big deal out of finding out what really is wrong with Lennie. People like this were not accepted at all in the time setting of the book. On page 41 George tells the men the story of Lennie touching a girls dress. He says that Lennie just likes to touch things and he doesn 't mean any harm. This is another hint at Lennie’s mental disability.
Moreover, Boo by nature is shy not leaving his house often not only this, but he is also according to Jem hiding from the racism and the discrimination. “...Scout, I think i’m beginning to understand something. I think I’m beginning to understand why Boo Radley’s stayed shut up in the house all this time. . .
Boo Radley, an innocent man who hasn’t been seen in years, is someone who is significantly affected by these stereotypes. This is displayed in the quote,“Inside the house lived a malevolent phantom. People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Lee 9). Boo Radley is derived to be an evil person even though very few, if any, people have ever seen him. The people of Maycomb place stereotypes on him from stories and allow their imagination to make false accusations.
There are many signs that happen in Frankenstein’s early life that’ll deflect him from pursuing his original studies, such as, his father not explaining why Victor shouldn’t read the book by Agrippa, the storm that he’s fasciated from and after he discovers the tree that was struck by lightening the night before. While, the Monster is traumatized after being abandoned by Victor. The Monster wants to be validated and loved by Victor. His need for validation leads him to seek it out whenever he can, though it proves to be disastrous. Overall, Shelley believes in nurture.
Although Macbeth has done some really bad deeds, he cannot be called a bad person out and out who goes on to achieve his ambitions without any consideration. He’s also a victim of the realization that there is no meaning as such in this world. This instability snatches his power to think and he gives in to his wife’s provoking speeches without providing any counter arguments to her. If he had any of his individuality left, he certainly must have had given some thought to her speeches but the lack of it shows his confusion. As soon as he joins the opposites foul and fair, he’s encountered by the weird (which is undefined because in the world of Macbeth nothing is normal).
When Jem and Scout were younger, they hear and create myths about a monster who conceals himself in his dark, mysterious house, never showing himself. Eventually, Dill becomes intrigued, using his creative imagination to add more details for enhancement. However, as the three children grow up, they begin to think differently about this monster, considering the fact that he may not be one after all. Instead, he is just an ordinary man, maybe even a hero. Boo Radley transforms from appearing as a mysterious and reserved monster to being recognized as a real hero because of the events concerning his uncertain past and the slow, yet sure build up of trust to where he finds the confidence, and capability to save Jem and Scout from Bob Ewell’s attack.
King has made Paul the new version of the final girl. As we’ve already covered, Paul was tortured by Annie throughout the novel, and although initially had no way to protect himself, he was secretly lifting his typewriter “…like some weird barbell…” (p.217) to gain physical strength. While “…another part of him, more calculating and less cowed, which reminded him that he could not play the part of Scheherazade if he grew frightened and placatory when ever she stormed” (p.64), reminding him to keep his mind strong. Paul did make an attempt to get help when he saw the Police car in Annie’s driveway by throwing an ashtray out the window, where King provided perfect imagery of Paul as the damsel in distress. And although further tortured for his actions, he keep “…thinking: I’m going to kill her” (p.44).
The night guards and Horatio being more reasonable than Hamlet at the time, tried to hold him back from going. They warned him not once, but multiple times of the dangers that could occur, such as the ghost bringing harm to Hamlet or even causing him to go insane. Hamlet being fearless, simply replied with “Why, what should be the fear? I do not set my life at a pin’s fee. And for my soul, what can it do to that, being a thing immortal as itself”?
Even though houses surround Mr. Mead, he still feels completely alone. No one tries to stop this alienation because the people taken over cannot, and those in power do not want to because unthinking people who will sit calmly watching their own televisions do not cause problems, as evidenced by the decrease in crime rates in the short story. Additionally, those like Mr. Mead who can still think do not speak out for fear of punishment, like the irrational police encounter. The nature metaphor between a city and a desolate place like the desert highlights the dehumanizing effects computers can have. Second, technology replaces human interactions, isolating people even more.
