The pristine blankness of their mind is susceptible to impressions, both positive and negative, from external factors, primarily parenting, schooling and their interactions with society. Victor’s physical and emotional reactions to his child tarnish this slate, altering the monster’s interpretation of the parent-child relationship and that of his part in the social order. Victor’s “bitterness of disappointment” reflects through his avoidance of his creation and foreshadows the abuse and abandonment that would ensue for the rest of the novel (Shelley 60). The monster cannot help his actions and thoughts because the only moral confidant that could possibly understand him is the absent
Although those police officers own more discourse power in the mainstream society, the detectives always despise their ability of case-solving. The police, like those police officers from the Scotland Yard in the Adventures of Holmes, and the detectives have a connection of contradictory and interdependent. The detectives often accept the invitation of the police to investigate. While at the same time, the detectives would provide the police some clues “in charity”, and rendered the police as gainers who reap where they don’t sow. In some hard-boiled detective fictions, the police are not only ignorant and incompetent, but also violent and corrupt.
The justice looks like the major issue of the plot, as Abner’s actions are explained by himself and his family as a response to an insult. But it is clear the man’s logic is twisted; Abner Snopes provoked all incidents by himself to create a reason to excuse his desire for fires. The final scenes of the story suggest the justice was served, as the man was caught during his final crime. But this is also a complex situation, as other family members, who did not support Abner’s position directly, did not experience the improvement in their living conditions and even could be hurt or killed. The story starts with the description of a trial, where Abner Snopes was accused in burning of his neighbor’s barn.
This in turn causes him to realize that that in the world there is nothing to believe in, nothing to guide civilization, only a choice, the right thing versus the safe thing to do in any situation.

This job that he had made him harm innocent people that have never done him harm, which causes him to feel all sorts of emotions and see him descending into worse and worse places. This mindless job of signing off on warrants was becoming too difficult for him to handle.

John tries to avoid his father and gets in an argument with Grace where he calls her a snob. If you let your fears and worries control your actions you are going to hurt people close to you. Both Grace and Smitty suffered the backlash of the protagonist’s actions. It was neither of their fault but they had to face the consequences all the same.

The existence of Tyler Durden and things that affecting the existence of Tyler are also analyzed The first conclusion is about the narrator’s characters. In the story the narrator is described as a cynical person. The way he reacted to Bob’s honesty about what happened to him in the past, and everything about those hormones and how he reacted to the condition of Chloe who are suffered from brain parasites, almost dead, and her last wish shows how cynical he is.He thinks that people are motivated by self-interest, he is distrustful of human sincerity or integrity.

He simply was an out of place person in the wrong community for him. Dick Prosser went crazy because of his constant hatred of being not equal to his counterparts around him. He was very obedient at the beginning of the story, but as the story progresses he begins to slowly break down until he goes crazy. The scene where the children find the gun shows that Dick has premeditated thoughts about taking the action he does. The readers of the story will never really know why he went crazy, but the best explanation is that buildup of negative emotion in

Malcom’s pent up rage and sorrow caused him to be so critical of himself and makes him hate himself, which is not a healthy way of coping; it is barley coping at all. Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, also represents this way of coping. When confronted with problems he just doesn’t help himself, and later in the movie it is shown how unhealthy this is. These two characters show the destructive nature of failure to cope, and its
