While they refuse to act upon their free will, their relentless pursuits carry each of them away from society. This, in turn, isolates them from the world outside themselves. While talking about the character’s fates, Hogle exclaims that “obsessive quests for truth beyond the domus lead to the drift of alienation and the cold prison of self-involvement” (Hogle). This conflict is damaging, and a large part of the reason why each character’s story ends so badly. In one of Mary Shelley’s essays, “On Love,” she describes selfishness as “the offspring of ignorance and mistake; it is the portion of unreflecting infancy, and savage solitude, or of those whom toil or evil occupations have [blunted or rendered torpid;] disinterested benevolence is the product of a cultivated imagination, and has an intimate connexion with all the arts which add ornament, or dignity, or power, or stability to the social state of man” (P. Shelley).
Wilson’s use of satire and other rhetorical devices effectively exposes the immature nature of the arguments between these two groups as well as demonstrate how counterproductive they can be. Wilson’s format is the first striking thing the reader notices. Both passages have the same general structure: They both begin by discrediting the other group, they both claim their group is entirely irreproachable, and they conclude by briefly establishing their own goals and ideas. This not only proves how similar the strategies are, but also establishes the immature and ineffective nature of these arguments.
Subjects always showed deep, shocking disapproval his objection face, and others denounced the experiment terming it as senseless and stupid.

Henry James used ambiguity to provide a more sporadic and confusing environment in The Turn of the Screw. His uses are terrifying because humans are afraid of the unknown, and his goal was to horrify people to the core, only leaving them some of the pieces to make an answer. James relied not on ghosts being a scary topic, but on confusion and the imagination of the reader. Even in the end, he left the story as it was, creating a vast plot hole that the reader feels the need to make something out of, an ultimate use of ambiguity. It becomes a book that he didn’t write, but the reader wrote and chose their own interpretation of for a more personal
This scene is extremely important in revealing more about Holden’s character. We know that he feels like an outsider in his own world. He associates himself with those “on the other side” which highlights the isolation he seems to feel. With further analysis, it is clear that Holden feels as though no one understands him and may be even against him.

(Bickmore and Youngblood 254)” His failure to reflect upon his poor choices, such as his failure to study and lack of motivation, can be seen as the birthplace from which many of his problems spring, leading to his pessimistic
