People may consider both of these societies dystopic, and others may say that they are different based on the little things. For instance, they cannot have their own children or families, and they may not make their own choices. Except the worst thing that is different about them in that Jonas’ society has no feeling or emotion, nor can they see color. Their society has taken away all of the choice, causing it to have overmanaged rules, families, and celebrations that they cannot enjoy, or find
Ruth was starting to feel that Art wasn’t appreciating her enough while Art tells Ruth that she never accepts help offers from anyone and makes her life harder than it is. When she has countless amounts of errands to run, she never asks for anyone’s help. She always depends on herself, spending more time for work than her love life. She wondered whether Art still loved her or not, but she did not this this situation seriously, as “she wasn’t the type of to get into conflict over things that were ultimately not that important” (Tan 49). She never discussed her struggles to maintain everything by herself to Art.
Even while being saved she was quite independent and didn't really have to be saved all the time. Another problem the princesses faces is that the characters around her won’t take her seriously. For example, whenever she spoke to her father he would not listen to a word she said. Which basically shows how the culture treats them for beauty and leaves out that she has a brain at all. A girl shouldn’t wait for the prince to rescue.
I could not wake someone up for the sake of company because no one could relate to my surroundings anymore. There was no one to wake up or stumble to in a jittery haze. I found myself more isolated through my inability to relate to those around me and having no one to come to as a safety net anymore. Without the human connections I was accustomed to I felt stuck and detached. Squished between two groups of family and friends that couldn’t relate to me or how I was living.
As they struggle to communicate, they become ostracized and do not fit in. Language is a part of one’s identity, and because the men do not speak the same language as the majority, they are not seen as a part of the culture or
(Wallace 2) His feelings aren’t being communicated through to her. Both of these quotes use diction to show how people think internally. Salva is feeling scared and alone inside but his feelings aren’t being communicated to the woman who was with him. This is shown through
Yet due to his mental disability, he does not understand the consequences of his actions. Because of this, he cannot control his strength. His lack of empathy results in unintentional damage to those around him. Compared to other characters, Lennie is not as high up on the social ladder. This is since he is unable to see possible outcomes from his decisions.
Completely drops her out of his life. Not being able to come to terms with his inner feelings himself, he definitely does not want to hear it from anyone
Scholars are physically unable to immerse themselves in the fictional or historical world they are analyzing, causing them to lack the required experiences and emotions needed to accurately analyze the text. For example, those who analyze ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ can do so only from an outside perspective, and thus never fully understand the emotions or actions of the characters in the book. Without being emerged in a society and without experiencing what happens first hand, it is difficult, complicated, and near impossible to write a history as if you did have those
