Another reason why a Separate Peace is a pessimistic novel is because it tells of a character who maliciously expressed his pettiness and jealousy to his friend through harm. During the entire novel Gene is rude to Finny for an unreasonable and unrealistic reason and “jounces the limb” to prove it. Gene’s jealousy of Finny’s natural talent drove their friendship to the point where it slowly disintegrates into anarchy and denial. All of these roots stemmed off from the moment when Gene- in his moment of hesitancy- shook the limb so that Finny would fall and shatter his leg ultimately crippling him from playing any physical sport ever again. Throughout the entire novel, Finny was completely unaware that his best friend would ever hurt him in such a way.

Compulsion with revenge only led Chillingworth to emotional corruption, hauled away various elements of life, raised anger, and drove him away from relationships with people. After all, would it be a wise determination to live with, or even possess, a spiteful mind preoccupied with revenge? The immediate answer has to be,

Until Clarisse inadvertently forces him to accept the truth, Montag denies his unhappiness to himself as well as to everyone else. He fervently denies the suggestion that he is not in love with anyone, claiming without hesitation that he is “very much in love” with Mildred (Bradbury 22). In light of the emotionally vacant and meaningless interactions between Montag and Mildred, the assertion that such a relationship is ‘love’ seems absurd. Montag never stops to wonder whether the things he says are true or not; there is no reflection of himself in his words. Montag’s defensive, almost automatic, responses are characteristic of a man who voices only what he thinks he is supposed to feel, not what he truly feels.

Paul and most of his friends died before he could see what the outcome would be-it’s almost as if their entire experience was useless. I felt for Paul, because in the end he explains that even his feelings were nothing: “...all that floods over me are but feelings…” The fact that eventually all the soldiers would be nobodies, and that the war would cause them to “fall into ruin,” made me unhappy.

Everything the soldiers have been through have left them to become a hollow, insensitive, nobody.
