Later, he states “One of my troubles is I never care too much when I lose something...Maybe that’s why I’m partly yellow.” (89). This shows that he is unmotivated and doesn’t care. He also says he is a coward when referring to himself as yellow. Being apathetic shows that Holden Caulfield would not make a good friend because he is unmotivated and very negative. A good friend would not bring the other person down, but help them look at the bright side.
Besides the lack of motives and his egocentricity, his failures in relationships, such as the relationship with Emilia, his parasitic lifestyle, unreliability and lack of responsibility are also proof of the fact that Iago is a psychopath. Perhaps he repressed this for a long time, but as Andrew Bradley says in his Shakespearean Tradegy: “[The play] shows us not a violent man, [...], but a thoroughly bad, cold man, who is at last tempted to let loose the forces within him, and is at once
The reason I think that is because she follows all six of the pillars of character which are, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship. Rosie is trustworthy because anybody can tell her secret and she won’t give it away. Next she is never mean to anybody and she follows rules. When Rosie has something due the next day she makes sure she gets it done. She is a very fair person because she doesn’t take sides at all.
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
Moravia 's protagonist Marcello is weak minded and succumbs to embracing fascism. Marcello 's interior monologue is the definitively twisted aspect of this novel as it shows us how he rationalizes the irrational choices made in his life. The time is marked by indifference meaning that the average person was too indifferent to their political life situation that they did not pick a side to support. Consequently this negative decision lead to the rise of fascism. Marcello had a very difficult childhood and due to that he becomes a conflicted human in his later life.
The innocent actions some take later in life will reward some, and deteriorate others. Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, by J.D Salinger delays his evitable process of growing up partly because of the tragic events that transpired earlier in his life and his ignorance to reality. However , Chris Mccandless differs from Holden in the fact that he fully understands reality but protests to greed of humans and the material possessions of man and still facing the gruesome consequence of his immaturity. Seymour Glass does not relate to the accepted adult community and further isolates himself from his peers. Although he appears immature, he actually is struggling from PTSD from the war and the picture his has for the violent adult man.
It’s a funny thing about girls. Every time you mention some guy that’s strictly a bastard—very mean, or very conceited and —when you mention it to the girl, she’ll tell you he has an inferiority complex (135). Holden is manipulated and prone under his own alienation, which eventually destroy and undermine him. Relationships, intimacy, and sexuality are also recurring themes that relate to the larger motif behind alienation. These factors represent what he fears most about the adult world, including complexity, irrationality, and conflicts.
They suppress their feelings and distanced themselves from partner (Chris & Shaver, 2000). 4. Fearful-avoidant attachment. Adults in this attachment style have mixed feelings about close relationship. They mistrust their partners and they view themselves as unworthy.
He cannot even fight for a worthy cause dear to his heart, but Fortinbras’ men die for a meaningless reason. Shakespeare uses particular words such as “death” (4.4.55), “danger dare” (4.4.55), “eggshell” (4.4.56), and “honor” (4.4.59) to show that Fortinbras’ men are braver than Hamlet since they take action. For this, Hamlet is irritated since they are fighting for an eggshell, a simple and useless item. However, this irritation sparks a realization which allows a powerful ending to the soliloquy. Hamlet vows to only have “bloody” (4.4.69) thoughts.
Secondly, Simon’s shyness makes him have a lack of communication making him a bad leader. For instance, Simon is the first to recognize the fact that the beastie is actually the boys. He realizes it is the evil within them. As a matter of fact, Simon tries to explain what he has understood, but his shyness and lack of communication doesn’t make him able to tell the other boys. As the author stated, “Simon became inarticulate in his effort to express mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 97).
