First impressions pave the way for any and all relationships within a person 's absolute life. As a narcissist, stepping in on the wrong foot is often hard by cause of building one sided relationships. In fact, to put to rest the misconception that the elevated self esteem is only one the outside while inside they are fragile people, a healthy social life is often challenging and sometimes impossible due to the constant desire for a ludicrous and unrealistic amount of applause and wonderment being so because they believe they do deserve it. In the movie, “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, one of the three main characters, Everett, falls victim to his lack of thorough recognition of the concept following his illusory perception that his being is greater than anyone else’s can or will ever be clever enough to accomplish is more than farfetched. Everett’s large vocabulary, spiffier appearance than his neighbors, and disabling lack of understanding and accepting criticism reflect his idea of entitlement and supports the idea of him being better than and never equal to the ones around
Brenda Nguyen English 1 Honors October 5, 2015 Intro Paragraph “People get tangled up in their own ego of how they’re perceived. They can lose their way,” –Pierce Brosnan. Some people seem to get caught up in themselves with their actions so that they can be viewed a certain way to society while negatively affecting others without realizing it. This self-pride can be a destructive force if realization isn’t taken into the interests of others.

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). Or simply anyone who fits into society norms, for example, Sally Hayes.
In The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, Mr. Antolini gives Holden Caulfield advice when he is at one of his lowest points. Already aware of Holden’s mental state and position on school, he quotes Wilhelm Stekel, a psychoanalyst, “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.” (Salinger 188). Although Holden fails to grasp Mr. Antolini’s message, the quote applies directly to his life because of his relationship with death as a result of his younger brother, Allie’s, death. Mr. Antolini uses this quote specifically because he wants Holden take a step back and try to live for a noble cause instead of resorting to death.
According to Victor and Edith Turner, a liminoid pilgrimage is a “[rite] of transition marked by three phases: separation, limen or margin, and aggregation” (p. 2). In Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods, all of the characters go to the woods and take part in those same three phases outlined by the Turners. They learn lessons on their journey and come out as changed people that barely resemble the characters in the traditional stories. In this way, Into The Woods is the musical liminoid pilgrimage of classic storybook characters.
O Brother Where Art Thou? is a film that will take you on a perilous journey with Ulysses Everett McGill and his simpleminded cohorts. This film may be set amidst the early 1930’s Great Depression era, but it still has a Homer’s Odyssey feel to it. Down in the dusty and highly racial south, Everett recruits a couple of dimwitted convicts, Pete Hogwallop and Delmar O’Donnell, to help him retrieve his lost treasure and make it back home before his wife marries another suitor.
Dally A rock-hard hood who never backs down from any challenge. Dally is a character in the book “Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton. The Outsiders is a book where a ragtag group of greasers band together and overcome victories, tragedies, and above all, build an even stronger bond of brotherhood.

Throughout one’s life, one tends to adapt to the traditions of their family, and gain a significant bond with their loved ones, including their siblings. However, that connection a person gains can either be diminished or forgotten due to a sense of different mindsets between family members. The two stories “The Rich Brother” by Tobias Wolff and “Sonny’s Blues” by James Baldwin indicate that sibling rivalry occurs when each member does not understand or acknowledge their sibling’s perspective, and this builds a wall barrier between the siblings.
I believe that Sucker has been created out of a psychological need, and there is some evidence to prove this. Sucker doesn’t seem to get noticed by anyone in his family except for Pete, Pete forgets about him occasionally, and the way Maybelle treated Pete was projected on the way Pete treated Sucker. Despite Sucker living with Pete and his family for quite a few years, he does not seem to have many connections to his family besides Pete. Sucker has been with them since he was a baby, and while it is normal for siblings to share a room, I do not know many siblings that share a bed.
The purpose of my essay is to explore how different social backgrounds and the social norms that follow affect the personality of two fictive characters and encourage them to break out of their station to find an identity. The protagonists Holden Caulfield in J.D. Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye and Tambudzai in Tsitsi Dangarembga’s novel Nervous Conditions are both victims of social norms. Therefore, the foundation of this essay was to analyze the character’s social background, which has influenced their personalities, behavior and aspirations, and consequently their opposing actions against society. Holden Caulfield is an American adolescent during the period after the Second World War.
Lost In Yonkers by Neil Simon is a charming play primarily revolving around two boys and their relationships with their extended family, while their father is traveling the country selling scrap metal. As any other play would, it has strong characters and weak characters, strong storylines and weak storylines, effective playwriting, and wasted chances. Unlike most other plays, though, this play’s greatest strength is also its greatest weakness. The numerous characters and storylines allow for a storyline or a character that everyone will relate with, but also multiple that they will not connect with at all. Lost In Yonkers, although enjoyable at times, certainly has some obvious weaknesses.
