Meursault 's psyche is different from that of society. He has nihilist outlooks and lack of sentiment, especially towards death and marriage, all serving as a challenge to society 's accepted values. Unlike the others around him, Meursault does not take emotion into consideration when making decisions, rather he relies purely on logic. He is
However, Creon’s inability to compromise with Antigone shows how narrow-minded he is. Despite the fact that Eteocles is their brother, he will not listen or hear Antigone’s request for a private burial. Creon will not let anyone make a fool out of him, which is why he doesn’t listen to any
“An irrational society is a society of moral cowards – of men paralyzed by the loss of moral standards, principles, and goals” (86) says Rand, and I feel that too far have the men in the society sunk away from moral standards, like putting their knowledge to use and expanding it, simply because they do not believe in judging others for fear of what others may see in them, especially Equality since he always abides by the strict standards with fear of the civilization itself. Equality would certainly agree with Rand’s advice, “One must never fail to pronounce moral judgement”, as Equality did by leaving the controlled society that brainwashed
They abandoned everyone in their lives, and so now they have abandoned in their afterlife. These sinners have "no hope in death" and their entire suffering is based on the fact that this is their suffering, they will never move on or advance in hell. The way Virgil describes them, in such distaste that they aren 't even worth wasting words over. These people see everyone come into hell, and no one pays them any mind, just as they did in life, they choose to be isolated, and now they suffer the ultimate isolation,
All Sal did was look at her mother's grave and looking at the grave let her believe. She can now live her life knowing her mom is dead and that she doesn’t always believe that she will come back. Sal said, “He was right about one thing, though: we didn’t need to bring her body back because she is in the trees, the barn, the fields,” (page 262). Now that Sal knows her mom is dead, she realizes why her dad didn't bring her body back to Bybanks. She knows that her mom is in everything, that her mom is everywhere.
A significant virtue Homer’s story covers is the importance of loyalty. The most notable exudation of loyalty is when Odysseus’ wife, Penelope, waits faithfully for ten years for the return of her husband. While many others tell her that Odysseus was most likely dead and that she should move on, she ignores them and never loses hope. She also concocts a clever scheme so she does not have to remarry. Saying that she would remarry once she finishes making a burial shroud for her late father-in-law, Laёrtês, she undoes the stitches every night so she would never finish, hence never remarry.
Although there was the time needed for the parents to mourn the death of their child, they were not promised any. Within the same day of their sons death, they had events and tasks that needed their attention. Life waits for no one and has a pace of its own. The humming sound adds to their disturbing theme of the call, when life calls you just have to answer. The baker calls and repeat the name of the recently deceased child “Scotty”.
Nevertheless, if he did not follow the rules, he would simply be looked down upon by his peers. This divulges the true internal conflict of not just a man, but a person not using their voice and being imprisoned by their troubles for life by following the rules of society. The silent one is not living, but merely existing. Moreover, considering the conflict, Ethan Frome only existed throughout his life. He never of his troubles to anyone.
Holden Caulfield lives his life as an outsider to his society, because of this any we (as a reader) find normal is a phony to him. Basically, every breathing thing in The Catcher in the Rye is a phony expect a select few, like Jane Gallagher. What is a phony to Holden and why is he obsessed with them? A phony is anyone who Holden feels is that living their authentic life, like D.B. (his older brother).
Especially since his self-identity is based on him being a very learned man. Also, the monster does not have a mate, therefore he has no one to share his thoughts, sorrows, or hopes with. All the monster wants is someone who can reach those so-called requirements because “no Eve soothed [his] sorrow nor shaped [his] thoughts” (Shelley 120). The monster is the Adam and all he desires is an Eve. There is nobody for him to bounce ideas off of, no basic reinforcements, he is alone.
I 'm "that poor widow we know from church," or I 'm "the woman whose husband and son died in a plane crash." I do not want my life compared to the Book of Job, but I see the comparisons. I pray that like Job I never blame God; oh that would hurt me.
(He nodded.) "No, of course there isn 't. When somebody 's sent here, there 's no ..." Startled by the expression of distress on his pale face, she suddenly broke off.” In this quote, Huxley shows how the savage caring for his dying mother is difficult to understand. The nurse believed he was there to find out about the centers, but he was there to see his mother before she passed away, and that confused the woman, because death is normal and is accepted. No one is saved.
He was unable to socialize with anyone other than himself due to his depression, anger, and nastiness. He avoided socializing with anyone he came in contact with, even people such as his co-workers or classmate friends. These certain problems would never be considered a tragic hero, which is a sign that the Underground Man is indeed the anti-hero. Most tragic heroes would have no problem talking to people in general, let alone people they know. If he were to be the tragic hero, he would be able to interact with people and his environment in a positive

That is not to say, however, that Mr. Backwards cares for nothing at all, as I have stated before, he cares much for himself and his drink! However, there is one more object which he holds fondly in his heart. The office which he holds in his home state. It is well known that Mr. Backwards had no inclination of joining this assembly as the very nature of it makes him sick at the thought. Do not be fooled by this man, he hides behind the excuse of being a state’s rights activist, but truly sets this man on edge, and plants anxiety in his soul is the desire to protect the significance of his local office.
