Charlie loved working for Squizzy Taylor because he was doing his favourite thing which was running to do the deliveries of liquor while he was also getting money to support both him and his family members. Charlie never thought that Squizzy Taylor would be such a bad guy because of how he treated Charlie so nicely and how he bought Charlie new boots because he saw that Charlie’s weren’t fit for running. Later in the book Charlie finds out what Squizzy Taylor’s real personality is like the night that Charlie and Nostrils went out for a delivery job and got Nostrils got jumped by Barlow and his group of boys and got really badly injured. When Charlie went back to Squizzy later that night he explained to Squizzy what happened and he didn’t even care how Nostrils was or if he was even going to survive, Squizzy’s only thought was if the delivery was done correctly. That night Charlie realised how much Squizzy only cared about himself and his business and not his workers who were only young.
The Poverty-stricken area is filled with death and sickness.

(Page 149). Which shows that his fear took over himself. Another example of when Charlie was acting fainthearted was when he went to Squizzy Taylor to help clean up the mess he left.

Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the Sun” is a provocative play written in the late 1950’s with dynamic elements of race, poverty, disillusionment, and hope. Its significance and message is one that has stood the test of time and is still relevant to today’s reader. A particular element that has evoked strong feeling in me is poverty and it’s profound impact on people especially children. Growing up I lived in a single parent household that was impoverished and I saw firsthand what living in poverty can do to children. A character that is growing into this cycle of poverty is Travis Younger and in this play we see him coming to age, adapting, battling poverty, and showing resilience all at the same time.
At one point in the story Charlie was inside a restaurant. A mentally impaired waiter was being harassed because he
The Running Man essay- Jamie Bouzianis The Running Man, by Michael Gerard Bauer (2004) portrays the theme of outsiders within a society. As Michael Gerard Bauer demonstrates isolation and exclusion, through various characters, this depicts the dangers of institutionalising and “Putting people in boxes”. The characters that illustrate this efficiently are Tom Leyton and Joseph Davidson, due to them being judged and deceived by others which therefore makes them feel like outsiders within their own community. This is portrayed through characterisation, metaphors, similes and motifs.
In the novel The Running Man by Michael Gerard Bauer, the author captures the experiences of a marginalised character, Tom Leyton. The use of the silkworm metaphor invites the audience to uncover the dark secrets of Tom Leyton 's mysterious past. The introduction of the character Joseph Davidson provides the author with a catalyst to open the metaphor of the silkworm and take the reader on a journey to understand the life experiences of Tom Leyton. Joseph Davidson, who is portrayed as someone with poor self esteem is also described as an outsider. The running man is used by the author to reveal the experiences of Joseph Davidson and demonstrate his growth of becoming less marginalised throughout the novel.

Charlie is clearly unstable when being alone, just like all people would be if they were in a situation where they felt this lonely. Another moment where we can see how exclusion negatively impacts Charlie when he was walking around the mall alone, and saw a girl he used to be friends with, and a group of friends she was with. He went up to her and asked her about Michael, their friend who committed suicide. This was undoubtedly an awkward situation that Charlie puts her in, and she thinks what he did was strange. As they walked away one of the guys whispered,
