The feeling of desertion can leave a person feeling gloomy and can cause extreme consequences. Separation and isolation can bring a person to a serious mental and physical presence that can lead to some scary images. The writers Grace Chua and F. Scott Fitzgerald incorporate the idea of desolation in their pieces to introduce the reader to the idea of loneliness and despair. Through The Great Gatsby and “(Love Song, With Two Goldfish)”, the writers use the main characters to show their love for each other but create the idea that when love isn’t present, it can mean a world of pain. Each writer creates the idea of separation within both pieces by having the main characters live in “separate worlds”.
Chris was not only socially isolated, but he was also physically isolated from everyone he loved. Chris was struck by disaster multiple times, and that resulted in heartbreaking notes detailing how he felt. Krakauer includes these notes because it makes the audience feel bad for Chris. For example, when the river floods and Chris is trapped, he wrote “‘Disaster…rained in. River look impossible.
This begins to weaken him both individually and emotionally, and it eventually takes a toll on him. Within Ender, Card shows that isolation and loneliness can destroy an individual through his collapse and his change in personality. After the grueling training and numerous battles that the government puts Ender through, along with all of the isolation and loneliness that he endures, he collapses in the processes both during and after the burdens were put onto him. The first major event that showed Ender enduring some troubles was when he woke up in the middle of the night and found that “there was blood” on his bed, and he had been “gnawing on his own fist” (285) in the middle of the night, in his sleep. This revealed to the reader that the strong and powerful Ender might be beginning to crack and show a

In the story, “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?” is about a man, Sergei Goralick, and his magical goldfish that granted him three wishes. Based on Sergei’s own speech, thoughts, and actions, readers can infer that deep down he is depressed and lonely. Sergei kept himself distant from everyone and was not very fond of strangers knocking on his door. One day a boy, Yonatan, showed up at Sergei’s front steps and insisted on asking questions for a movie he was filming, but Sergei was not appealed. As Yonatan still tried to question he was intrigued by Sergei’s magical goldfish, Sergei became overprotective and killed the boy.
One way loneliness is illustrated in Beowulf is through the monster, Grendel. Grendel encounters feelings of loneliness from being exiled from the townspeople’s parties. Since Grendel was a monster descended from Cain, he was not accepted by other
Racism showed in many different forms during Griffin social experiment. There was the hate stare, which Griffin described as, “You feel lost, sick at heart before such unmasked hatred, not so much because it threatens you as because it shows humans in such an inhuman light (52).” Another form was that blacks were denied the same basic privileges as whites, which Griffin encountered multiple times on his journey. Blacks were denied: jobs (38, 99 – 101), goods and services (49), and bathrooms (60 – 62, 85 – 86). And another form of racism is ignorance. This form of racism can be both intentional and unintentional, which is why I think it is probably the most used for of racism.

The flaws are role in relationship, attachment to men, and lastly, their submissiveness to men.

It can make us confused, distraught, depressed, frightened, and even outraged” (Sadler 105). In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, several of these effects are presented in Victor Frankenstein and his creation. They both suffer from being isolated from their creator, society, and family units.
The Story of Coral Cat- The End of the Truck RockHARDforts _Disclaimer: this story will be mostly enjoyed by Taylor, considering she has dealt with the rockforts firsthand._ Welcome again, toons! In the last chapter, I last told the story of Yogurt, a southern homosexual who was (somewhat) raped and tortured by Coral Cat until he sadly passed away. So let 's pick up where we left off, shall we? After Yogurt 's incident, Coral Cat had to lay low for a while. She realized that carving "CC" in Yogurt 's neck was probably not the best idea.
As for Marianne Moore, she had described an environment that may be seen by a fish; “the/turquoise sea/ of bodies. The water drives a wedge...”. Not only did Bishop described a fish but made the tone sound admiring while Moore’s tone was serious but was told in an observant way. We can tell the difference in tone by the way Bishop uses many opinionated adjectives to describe the fish. A few examples of adjectives she used are weaponlike, sullen, and frightening gills.
