In latin “Solitaire” (the card game the men play) means alone and isolated. Some of the characters in the book have been described as more isolated and lonely than the other character, with the ones in particular ; Crooks, Candy and Curley’s Wife. Crooks is lonely because he is black and has a crooked back which is physically isolating him, Candy is lonely because he is old and only has one hand, Curley’s Wife is lonely because she is the only woman on the ranch. All the people living on the ranch are lonely to some extent. This is proven when Steinbeck describes the bunkhouse where all the workers sleep.
Living in such a privileged country people tend to forget the great importance of reading and writing. For Frederick Douglass, Malcolm X, and Sandra Cisneros they were trapped in a world where society defined who they were, they were deprived of their identity and were expounded to the lowest expectations of society. With the curse of not knowing was followed by the gift of intellectual integrity to rise above society's expectations. Being born into a life where your future is defined by the civilization around you can supply a person with the state of loneliness. Malcolm X was born into a time where his race was impudent, he was raised in a rough neighborhood.
During the course of the film, Citizen Kane included very dim lighting, sometimes to the point where only silhouettes could be seen. While the newspaper reporters review Kane’s life in the beginning of the movie, everybody’s face is engulfed in shadow, which emphasizes the isolation Kane felt consistently during his life. Kane, despite his wealth, never had a dependent source of love or support. Welles shows that Kane is completely and utterly alone with the darkness; even in his death, a room full of people want to invade his privacy purely for the press, not to mourn or offer respect. Additionally, Finch uses low-key lighting to reveal Zuckerberg's conflict at the start of the movie.
With safety rules and regulations being unexisted, it was hard to blame employers responsible. It was worse for women and children, who worked as hard or even harder than men, often time only revcieved only but a fraction of what a man earned. What made this even far more difficult is the laissez-faire capitalism which took over the 19th-century which
This shows that the workers are considered to be the same, making them easily replaceable. They sleep on uncomfortable ‘burlap’ mattresses and keep their few belongings in an ‘apple box’ that is ‘nailed’ to the wall. The bleak conditions the men stay in make the reader realise that a migrant workers life is considered worthless. However, Steinbeck allows the reader to feel optimistic for the men by incorporating metaphors about hope. The ‘sun threw a bright dust-laden bar’ could mean that the light is overpowering the darkness in their lives, but even here the light is tainted by
Romanticism Synthesis Essay Washington Irving was a brilliant writer who was able to describe Romanticism aspects in his stories such as greed, the supernatural and personal freedom.

They are unwilling to follow standards set by society, and make damaging conscious decisions such as using drugs or committing crimes. Rutger Bregman of “The Correspondent” illustrates more valid examples about the lower class, stating how they are usually the last to sign up for money management training and “when responding to job ads, the poor often write the worst applications and show up at interviews in the least professional attire” (Bregman 1). Although this might be true, the impacting cognitive effects from an impoverished upbringing can explain these behaviors. For the lower class, resting is a luxury and they are often exhausted by how much they have to work in order to pay the bills. The Atlantic states how “poverty 's stress interferes with our ability to make good decisions... because the short-term needs are so great and the long-term gains so implausible” (Thompson 1).
The underlining theme of loneliness is prevalent throughout the novel, but in this chapter it seemed vastly more prevalent. John Singer who is extremely less lonely than Jake which is surprising because of his lack of social communication skills he can use, is still lonely just not as much as Jake. The main reason of Singer Loneliness is consequently due to the fact that Antonopolis is away still. John Singer is like an epicenter of loneliness because of that fact that he is just someone to talk to for the lonelier people.

When he then shows us the inside it is run down and sparsely lit but it has the most loving, wise, and caring characters. Protagonist characters are not usually displayed to be living in such rundown low conditions but Burton uses this to his advantage to depict his message of don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He uses the dark lighting in the house continually and it helps emphasize how poor his family is while showing you with subtle high key lighting around the characters that they are good people. He also uses high key
“If they would rather,... they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.” From the words of Ebenezer Scrooge one can see that he does not he does not care for people.

He worked in a blacking factory.
