but wherefore I know not—lost all my mirth.” His depression over his father’s illness is very real but often rolled up in his faked madness. On the other hand, Ophelia is genuinely “mad,” sick with grief over her father’s death and unable to fit in with the court society. Her scene with her brother, who just confirmed his father’s death, is heartbreaking. She doesn’t recognize him at all.
Mental health is presented in a similar manner in Hamlet and Ordinary People, because both Hamlet and Conrad, are devastated, and thrown into a spiral of depression, by the loss of a family member, and the deterioration of their families. Hamlet falls into his hole of depression when his father is murdered and he finds out that his mother is guilty of incest with his own uncle. When Hamlet says, “A little month, or ere those shoes were old / With which she followed my poor father’s body, / Like Niobe, all tears-why she, even she…married my uncle, / My father’s brother,” (Shakespeare, I, II, 147-153), we see that he is extremely disappointed in his mother for not only remarrying so quickly, but, marrying her own brother-in-law, and he is upset at the loss of his father. In Ordinary People, Conrad sinks into depression after his older brother, Buck, drowns in a lake accident, and he falls deeper into depression when he realizes that his parents’ marriage is deteriorating slowly.
I think several of us in this class has a relative that identified with Sonny’s brother. I was pleased with the way the story end too. My feeling was that identify was a big theme in the story. Both Sonny and his brother search for who they are. The elderly brother who never understood his younger sibling was always watching him pushing moral values on him, which does more harm than good.

The book takes place in two different settings, but both settings are in the United Kingdom.
Susan Henning Uphauser wrote that "many critics have identified Harry’s running as a religious quest, a search for meaning beyond the natural world." Of all the characters in the novel, he is the only one who senses that there is meaning hidden somewhere in life, that "somewhere behind all this … there's something that wants me to find it." In 1950s American society, which Uphauser characterized as "spiritually suffocating," of course, he cannot find this meaning. Thus, she wrote, "Updike conveys the confusion, meaninglessness, and uncertainty in American society today." Updike does not present any answers to Harry’s quest; readers don't have any sense that he will ever find what he's looking for or that he will solve his difficulties with
