Every night she orders a bowl of soup and while breaking saltines, “she drags it out as long as possible, breaking the crackers into smaller and smaller pieces,[...]” (Ascher 3). After she is done with her soup, the narrator comments on how empty the rest of her night will be. One interesting thing about this woman isn’t only that she came to the cafe alone, but she has nothing in her purse, like pictures of her family or anything personal. The author says everything in her life is normal.
Lewis described her twelve-hour shifts as slow, but there was also an added pressure of needing to be available on a second’s notice. “If the phone happened to ring while you were in the bathroom, you were running out with your pants unbuttoned,” she remarked with a laugh. Lewis remained in
The people in the society have no purpose and spend their days doing mindless actions that have no effect on anything substantial. Clarisse explains to Montag how no one does anything in school, and that their schedule consists of “an hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports” (27). No one learns anything in school because no one has a need for knowledge in daily life. In school, they do what their parents spend all day doing: watching TV and mindlessly going about their days. Mildred spends all day in her ‘parlor’, and not even TV has any meaning to it.
This led to Minnie living a solitary life, lonely and cut off from others. Mrs. Hale frequently refers to Minnie by her maiden name because she was a different person before this isolation in her home and marriage. The Minnie she knew many years ago
ADHD, also known as “Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder” Children with ADHD may be hyperactive and unable to control their impulse. Last year I got to know one of them, her name was Sunny. We didn’t have a pleasant start to know each other, all I knew was that she is a hard nut to crack. I could only hear an annoying kid bounding, and making sounds of sudden shrieking or sniveling that alerted me anytime.
My mother 's hair drifted upon my taste buds,which was quite odd that the wind was blowing that direction. I saw the flicker of the light on the camera which looked as if I faced the sun 's ray itself. But I would do anything for family, family is what counts. The kettle corn popcorn exploded in the red popcorn machine just as the camera dinged, it was like hundreds of pops bursting at once. It drifted into my nostrils forever
Should they go to the next of kin or someone who can love them? The granddaughter lives with her grandmother in a house, yet it is not a home. She is taken care of physically but her emotional needs are left unnurtured. The walls in her room are empty, there is nothing but a bed and the suitcases that she will never unpack. “She forgot why she had gone in the girl’s empty room, that ungirlish, tenuous lodging place with its bleak order, its ready suitcases never unpacked…”
They are either living a boring and uneventful life or they are poor and face many hardships. The protagonist Bonnie is a clear representation of the first depiction. Before she gets involved with Clyde she was apparently a waitress and lived in a house by herself. She didn't seem to find anything interesting about this life which Clyde was able to immediately see. In the scene where Clyde talks her into joining up with him it is easy to decipher how uninterested she was with her previous life by the look on her face.
“The other people in the house never seemed to notice her…” (Capote, 66). Mrs. Miller lives such a plain life that she is as invisible as a ghost, which is very noteworthy for she is soon haunted by what is arguably an apparition who she shares a name with. Mrs. Miller first meets Miriam while standing in line at the box office. This is the first description of Miriam:
Persephone sighed, she stood where she always stood and repeated the lines she always had to recite, “Can I get a name for that order?” Eleus, Grecek, a small town had never been a place that people flocked to see, nor a place that passersby even stopped to on the way to destinations people actually wanted to see. Eleus was a town where nothing really happened. No flowers grew except the occasional dandelion in the crack of a sidewalk; No birds sang except the occasional crow cawing from the telephone wire. Everything was gray, as was Persephone’s life, until one day where everything changed.
While the atmospheres of the homestead and the concert hall in Boston both affected Aunt Georgiana intensely, the homestead is dull, monotonous, and harsh while the Boston concert hall is dazzling, riveting, and enthralling. The homestead is described as extremely isolated; Aunt Georgiana "had not been further than fifty miles from the homestead" for thirty years. She had to do extensive work from sunrise to sundown to keep the homestead in order; this caused her to have stooped shoulders and a "sunken chest." On the homestead Aunt Georgiana did not hear any music aside from the choir at her local church. At the concert hall in Boston, the sparkling lights on the ceiling and the captivating instruments in the orchestra exemplify a more affluent lifestyle in contrast to the arduous labor in the west.

Every life knows tragedy. While some tragedies may be greater than others, it is tragedy all the same. In his book Night, Elis Wiesel brings light to one of the most tragic events in our history The Holocaust. Wiesel describes his torturous treatment in the concentration camps, a place which stole everything from him: his home, his family, and even his faith in God. After seeing people tortured, gassed, and burned, Wiesel states, “my eyes had opened and I was alone, terribly alone in the world without God, without man.
Truman Capote writes “ Deal me out baby, ‘ Dick said. ‘I’m a normal.’ And Dick meant what he said. He thought of himself as balanced, as sane as anyone - maybe a bit smarter than the average fellow, that’s all. But Perry - there was, in Dick’s opinion, ‘something wrong’ with Little Perry.”
Truman Capote enlightened the world with an insight to the brutal murders committed by Perry Smith and Dick Hickock of the six innocent lives of the Clutter Family. It was entirely clear that the victims’ lives were taken out of spite. Capote exposes the murderers’ mentality and its relation to family by expertly exploiting the characters, accentuating the setting, and constantly foreshadowing the outcome.. Due to the fact that the crime was committed by two people, Dick and Perry, it is essential to fully comprehend these characters and who they were.
