The fear for his safety not only physically isolated him, but emotionally scarred him. The monster is even “terrified” of his own reflection, suggesting there is no hope of acceptance from humankind since he cannot even accept himself (Shelley 121). The monster later comments that he was “drivest from joy for no misdeed” (Shelley 105). People were too quick to judge the monster’s image instead of
This indicates that Tom is low in self-esteem and confidence leads him to become an antihero which conflicts Chandler’s idea. “With his rule that the reader should not be allowed to follow the murderer’s thought” (James 59). Monsignor Knox explains that in crime story readers are not supposed to know what does the murderer thinks. Thus, Highsmith inverts Knox’s propose and allows the readers full access to the mind of Tom Ripley. By reading the murderer’s mind, it builds our sympathies in Tom Ripley and wants him to success.
In conclusion, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck furthers Steinbeck’s speech by illustrating how dreams can be crushed, as well as people feeling lonely and worthless when they are discriminated against, whether it be racism or sexism. By illustrating what happens when these isms are present in society, Steinbeck is demonstrating exactly why they should not be existent. Discrimination has lasting negative effects that can only be prevented by treating everyone as equals. To end, a n unknown wise man once said “Treat the janitor with the same respect as the
I should have linked with different sensations.” (pg.93). Here, the Monster is saying that he regrets trying to be nice to humans. He feels that now the only right thing to do is to slaughter them all. Since nobody will even have a conversation with him, why did he even try to be nice in the first
In ‘A Clockwork Orange’, if you were to apply psychoanalytic lens to the text is becomes clear that Burgess has constructed Alex as a malignant narcissist, who he utilizes as a tool to project his concern that society is shaping the human race into becoming like Alex. Burgess in his novel describes a society which is at the beginnings of totalitarianism. Alex is an interesting protagonist as he doesn’t seek to revolutionize his society. By committing horrendous crimes, it enables him to feel emotion in an ordered world. Both Heller and Kiraly argued that “..._A Clockwork Orange_portrays a detached, uncaring society where ultraviolence is the only method of saying, ‘I am alive’”.
Perhaps even more infuriating was the lack of closure for the character, Isidore. They build up Isidore as a 'special' that willingly harbors androids. However, his character infuriatingly vanishes after Rick deals with the androids Isidore is looking after. Leaving a heart-wrenching open end to Isidore's innocent character. Making the plot feel as if the book is missing
Furthermore, Joe likes revealing other people’s secrets and does not understand what privacy is. By neglecting Drew’s feelings, Joe exposes to Bill that Drew cheated on his exam to get his diploma (Brest). This shows that Joe is unsympathetic. Moreover, Joe is very selfish since he misused his powers and took an innocent life just so he could explore the human world. This shows that he is inconsiderate and selfish and does not care for others.
Hank had to get into the core of the government to stifle with the ideology just enough for him to start seeing results. In the novel, a strong example of the armor proving to be useless is when hank jousts the knights in armor and as the crowd sees that Sir Sagramore is down and when inspecting him they observe “There was a hole through the breast of his chain mail, but they attached no importance to a little thing like that” (299). The armor not only is proven useless but by allowing the bullet to penetrate and cause harm is
Shelley reasons that the monster’s character deficiencies are due to society’s inclination to judge individuals based on appearance and Victor’s shortcomings as a parent, rather than the monster itself being intrinsically evil. Victor’s lack of responsibility as a creator of life, and overall absence of foresight regarding his creation make him predominantly liable for the many heinous acts that the monster commits
In General: 6) What does this draft do well? It well defines the outlook of the society towards the zombies. It rebukes the concept of modern selfish generation who cares about nothing but them.
