People that are different from the main crowd of society are often viewed as outcast of society. They don’t choose to be outcast but they chosen as outcasts by society. In the book, To Kill A Mockingbird there are many outcast, including Boo Radley, Atticus Finch, and Mr. Dolphus.

Scout knows that Jem’s information source on Boo Radley is from another individual and their fantasies, “So Jem received most of his information from Miss Stephanie Crawford, a neighbourhood scold, who said she knew the whole thing.”

J.P. Kulshrestha has observed that Greene's thrillers are written "in the predominantly secular point of view," but the narrative world of the entertainments is fallen, not merely secular. What Harper refers to as "the extreme suffering of loneliness" experienced by the spy on the run becomes emblematic of the modern predicament as Greene conceives it: the loss of God as punishment for the failure and guilt which define our fallen state. Greene's juxtaposition of the comic world and the fallen world emphasizes Wormold's psychological detachment from the concerns and values of the women. The fallen world into which Greene's other heroes finds themselves catapulted lies across "the frontier of violence." Violence, or the threat of violence, plays an important part in any spy novel, yet, even without the violence forming an integral part of a thriller's physical action, the historical back grounds and settings of the entertainments reflect a world fallen from unity and order into the abyss of violence and

A world where good men die first. A world that society neglects and ignores a ghetto child’s cries. A world that chose not to hear ghetto children’s voices in our music and is intimidated by our writings. A world that really doesn’t understand our struggle. We live, only to be judged by someone on the outside looking in.
Trash of Maycomb County, is what the Ewell family was considered primarily because their property looked like trash, and they looked like trash as well. The quote, “He thought he’d be a hero, but all he got for his pain was… okay, we’ll convict this Negro, but get back to your dump (Doc E), shows that even though Mayella was able to lock up an innocent black man convicted, her family was still considered the lowest in class of the town. Mayella is socially secluded to the point that she has never been addressed with respect. She wants to change her situation, nut she is powerless to do so. She is a prisoner of her class and lacks the power to leave her
Away with you, you miserable wretch! And don't you come near me ever again" (Voltaire, 8). After this occurs, Candide is helped by an Anabaptist named James. The kindness of this man shows Voltaire's disapproval of religious prejudice, considering at this time Anabaptists were extremely unpopular and often persecuted. Throughout the novel, popular religions are criticized and shown to be highly immoral continuously through characters such as the Inquisitor, Don Issacar, and Pope Urban X. Voltaire imprints these ideas in the minds of the oppressed by having lower class characters as well-liked characters in order to relate with the reader and by making Dr.
Kingsolver’s first goal of the Poisonwood Bible is proposing how an individual could make peace with the aftermath of their worst mistakes and flaws, as shown through the voices of the Price girls. Kingsolver’s decision to leave Nathan Price voiceless represents the seemingly untouchable arrogance and offensiveness of large powers that drag peaceful innocents into conflict for their own gain. Nathan has no voice because Kingsolver wanted him to be viewed from the outside. Nathan is the uncontrollable darkness that festers in humanity; he is the crimes of a previous generation that are inherited by a new, unsympathetic one that is helpless to change its past and must come to terms with it. Therefore Kingsolver’s main goal of the Poisonwood Bible was for different generations and their individuals to question their preexisting beliefs and spark moral conversations and debates amongst each
