Not in the sense that he does not care for those around him. It is quite the opposite, he often expresses that the fate of his loved ones greatly affect him. He even ends up being in some sort of depression after each and every murder. But the point is, that even though he knows what happened or what is going to happen, he continues to be inactive, instead of finally starting to act and trying to prevent any of the unfortunate happenings. Although, he should actually be the one getting involved, as all of this is his fault for creating the monster.
The bond of common humanity now drew me irresistibly to gloom. A fraternal melancholy! For both I and Bartleby were sons of Adam” (889). Even though the narrator was not guilty of being disobedient at this moment, he was growing angrier at Bartleby due to his refusal to do his job. This ultimately lead him to not serving God because he would eventually stop being of assistance to Bartleby, which may have let to stating that he turned into a pillar of salt a that
It is more about comforting her than anything else. Holden is a teenager who suffers from serious mental illnesses, but nonetheless, he is a caring individual. He was enduring a dilemma and chose not to elaborate on it, and as a result, his psychological state became fragile and he became unapproachable, but if he chose to discuss the problem with a loved one, a potential solution could have been found, along with psychological health. That is where he made his mistake, and became mentally unstable. As much as he tries to downplay the fact that he does not care about Jane by using diction like ‘hell’ and ‘bastard’, but he truly cares.
“I know it’s a lie, Dennis, but it doesn’t have to be. We could have this, for real I mean, if you still want to.” “If I still want to?” Booker parroted, his surprise raising the pitch of his voice. “Jesus, Tom, of course I do! I just thought you felt differently about me because I behaved like such an asshole and—” “Whoa,” Tom admonished quietly. “Let’s not keep laying blame.
I had finally come to accept it. We had begun to communicate with out wyes, with nods of our heads, with gestures of our hands. But we did not speak to each other. I had no idea how he was getting along in psychology, or how his family was, but I heard no bad news, so I assumed things were more or less all right.” [Potok, p 243] Even though Danny hates it as well, he accepts it, but Reuven is furious at Reb Saunders for torturing his son even further. He believes that the silence is not only destroying his relationship with Danny, but also Danny’s soul.
Langston Hughes 's shifting attitude toward salvation in his essay was disappointing and at the same time upsetting. He 's disappointed and upset because he was forced to believe in the situation that something will happen to him inside before he accept Jesus but instead it did not happen. Most of the time we are pressured to accept an idea of what others belief, not because we agree to it but instead we intentionally do it for them to stop asking. Some felt the guilt after, and do something about it but most of the time we just let it go and move on.
In Poisonwood Bible and Things Fall Apart, the spearheading male characters succumb to doubts of their own validity despite being initially established as the ones with the most power. The urge to exercise this inherent power reflects an instability within the minds of the owners, creating a sort of deterrence so that outsiders don’t examine closer. If they do, they see brokenness, doubt, fear...all things that a man in power should not feel and should not have the right to feel. These perpetrators of cruelty show their weakness through their actions, as their character is not strong enough to be convincing based on values alone, and slowly chip away at them despite having the intentions of doing the opposite. Those on the receiving end, however, are the ones who benefit in the end, as they become aware of one’s true personality and realize that there is more possibility outside of the abuse.
Bartleby’s melodramatic ending was not as satisfactory as to what the viewers wanted. Though Bartleby went out the way his character is expected to, it did not fully satisfy the readers and instead left them wanting more. Bartleby, the Scrivener is not the most sentimental as it is hard for people to relate to Bartleby’s strange character. However, this last scene of Bartleby in prison induces a lingering melancholic feeling, wishing a happier ending for
Then again, he himself knows that somehow, everything leads him back to fucking Midoriya Izuku. Izuku didn’t want to think too much about it though. “Kacchan,” Surprisingly, Izuku’s voice came out rather calm. He places a hand on Katsuku’s chest, gently pushing him back. “I’m sorry … but I don’t have any idea what you’re talking about.” Katsuki’s next words dies in his mouth when he notices that he can no longer see himself in those green eyes.
In my understanding, to have a right mind is to be submissive to the given rules. Since Luke finds it hard to conform, he is always punished in several different ways, but these punishments never seem to bother him. There is a scene near the end of the movie, where he is given a punishment that eventually made him give up. He pleaded to stop the punishment. Screaming to stop the bosses from hitting him telling them that he finally has his mind right.
