Montag hides some books until he finds the courage to read them. He goes from burning books to a book reader, effectively demonstrating his objection towards his society. The society forces people to watch their television instead of going outside or having meaningful conversations. They don’t even have porches“’[…but Clarisse’s] uncle say that was merely rationalizing it; the real reason, hidden underneath, might be they didn’t want people sitting like that, doing nothing, rocking, talking; that was the wrong kind of social life. People talked too much.
Mildred fails to have her own identity as considers her television as “her family” suggesting that her husband is not her family. While Clarisse expresses her own identity as she considers herself “abnormal” from the kids her own age. the idea of having an individual identity cease to exist in this novel as everyone is afraid of expressing themselves and being the outcast. Thus, Mildred does not have her own identity suggesting that she is hiding it or has no desire of having her own. It shows how people in this novel are afraid of being different.
Ray Bradbury once said "You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them." In Fahrenheit 451's dystopian society, Bradbury perfectly shows how culture is non existent once books are banned. The people in the novel didn't have feelings for one another and were completely ignorant to their surroundings. Bradbury understood and conveyed how banning books is to ban individuality, intellectuality, and a culture as a whole.
Furthermore, the irregularity of Medea’s situation stems from another characteristic of the play. Such feature is the intensity of her revenge. Medea’s reaction to Jason’s betrayal goes above and beyond readers’ expectations. It fixates them in a state of shock and consternation. Medea’s choice of killing her children in her own home is a very heartless, harmful decision that would impose unlimited pain on both her and Jason.
Another factor is that her old husband was healing Dimmsdale, her ‘illegitimate’ lover. Hester and her daughter Pearl lived with mistrust, the townspeople were disgusted by her, and would never trust her even after her sentence was lifted. Relationships can stand on the grounds of mistrust and isolation, but they may never thrive on it due to the fact of trust and companionship being the key factors in a relationship. This was shown throughout both The Scarlett Letter and Ethan Frome in a variety of ways, including the lack of true companionship in both novels and also the complete lack of trust held by some characters in both
The kolba is like Neverland in Peter Pan. Mariam can never grow up unless she leaves the kolba. Mariam is very ignorant, because she is unaware of how society, especially her father and his wives, views her. In the book it says “The anxiety would set in on Tuesday. Mariam would
Everything was done in the cheapest way.” (O’Neill 948). Mary was very much ashamed of her home and her husband hated calling people and receiving them. She also states that her husband never wanted a home so she never had no place to attached herself to and a place to be comfortable
The mother refuses to give the quilts to Dee, due to the fact she doesn’t care about the sentimental meaning of the quilts. The mother wants Maggie to have the quilts instead. Dee is frustrated and shouts “Maggie can’t appreciate these quilts!” (Walker 1229). Dee also shouts, “She’d probably be backward enough to put them to everyday use.” (Walker 1229). The mother feels shocked, and takes the quilts away from Dee.
Lines four and five tied into lack of opinionated communication by saying, “my silence it can’t comprehend all we have to exchange” (Dao, 147). These lines make it very prominent that a person can lose themselves because they do not talk about how they feel. As discussed in the previous paragraph, without speaking you lose your say on the government and how to combat it. The poem then goes to state, “a perpetual stranger I am to myself” (Dao, 147). This shows how they only view themselves as a stranger because they do not know who they are.
They disagree on every issue and the situation is affecting to Claire very negatively. She doesn’t feel loved or that either of her parents would care about her. At one point in the film Bender asks who does she like better, her mother of father, and the answer is exhaustive: ”They are both screwed. I’d probably go live with my brother. I mean, I don’t think either of them give a shit about
