Though the narrator originally leads the reader to believe that this is because Bartleby works day and night with “...no pause for digestion” and hardly speaks to his co workers, it is because life has already worn him out (Melville 11). Just by working as “... a subordinate clerk inilarly to Mr.Wakefield, Bartleby has given up on being normal because being normal killed him
Before Watson and John’s meeting, he never felt any negativity towards Watson, he was even finally relieved to be able to find someone to share the artistic value of Shakespeare’s language, but disdains Helmholtz’s laughter to both his cultural values and innermost feelings. This demonstration of the power of conditioning makes John hate the World State. John finds out the truth about the World State and perceives the World State society as materialistic, superficial, and immoral. John’s feeling of apprehension ever since arriving at the World State from the Savage Reservations, makes him realize that he never could fit in with this society. Although happiness is the dominating force within the World State, John never finds himself truly happy.

Lowry writes, " he had not taken the pills for four weeks. The stirring had returned, and he felt a little guilty and embarrassed about the pleasurable dreams that came to him as he slept." Joan's feels guilty because he knows it's not right to not take the pills, but the dreams are pleasurable to him, so he stops taking them. This matters because this one of the first change Jonas has because he is now feeling, feelings, just like The Giver, but not everyone else.this reveals to us that jonas is breaking a rule and lying to everyone that his is taking the pills.
This belief would be simpler to ascribe to then most layperson would acknowledge. While the event of the wayward younger son dominate the parable, it is important not to neglect the differing reactions between and father and son. Without noting the somewhat self-righteous anger of the older son, the parable might lose impact for the self-righteous in the original audience. P.C. Enniss writes from this perspective, “There was no party for the elder brother, no robe, no ring on the finger, no fatted calf, no father's embrace until well into the party, when the father finally noticed the older brother's absence and searched outside to find him sulking in the shadows, whereupon the father stammered through some feeble effort at an explanation, albeit unconvincing, one suspects.” From the perspective of the older brother, the father was acting irrationally and
Thirdly , Hemingway's short story " A clean, Well-Lighted Place" and Carver's short story " Cathedral" can be compared with similar characteristics. These two stories show us how people now a day are ignorant and judge strangers without knowing them. In addition, ignorance is a big factor in the two stories because in Hemingway's story, the young waiter ignores and doesn’t understand the old man who wants to spend time at the cafe because he feels alone, but instead he tries shutting him down by going home early. However in Carver's story "Cathedral" the narrator who is ignorant and spends time in front of his television is very close-minded to new things and new people. Carver's ignorant character judges the blind man too fast because at
Blackie sulks for a bit, feeling like being “any ordinary member of the gang,” (4) is just too ordinary. But then Mr Thomas is coming home too early and the gang turns on T saying they can’t finish in time and that he should just run along home. Blackie watches T panic and go through the same loss of identity and he feels empathy, having gone through it very recently. He sees a member of his gang in trouble and it brings him out of his sulky funk, needed once more. People can be pulled from their place of helplessness through empathy.
Danforth is too concerned with his reputation to admit that his judgement, at first, was clouded. Many ask for his mercy towards the accused and he denies it to them to keep his reputation, “... Postponement now speaks floundering on my part...” (Miller 667). This shows that Danforth could have ended the hysteria in Salem by admitting that he does not believe that any of the accused are guilty and claiming the accused not
Although none of these are reasonable excuses, they do not reach the level of selfishness one man 's response does. A man emotionlessly responded, "I was tired" (123) so he "went back to bed" (123). Another human 's life should prioritized in front of personal wants and should not be an alternate choice to one 's desires. When human nature is thought of, a constant characteristic that appears in people 's minds is the ability of human 's to place themselves in front of others. This characteristic combined with a gruesome period in American history resulted in a horrific event that is still talked about today.
Equality 7-2521 starts the novel as misguided, who has just never understood that he is not quite the same as everyone around him. When Equality 7-2521 incidentally returns late to the Home of the Street Sweepers, he postponed to tell his Home Council where he has been, and is thrown into the Palace of Corrective Detention, where he 's beaten. "Take our brother Equality 7-2521 to the Palace of Corrective Detention. Lash them until they tell" (64). The refusal to account for himself, based on how the Elders treated him and his lightbulb , was strengthening the thought of "self", which until this minute was truly not understood.
Shin failed to do this because he is a very honest, but well-meaning, person. “‘You haven’t lived but a few years,” one of the guards told Shin. ‘Just confess and go out and live. Would you like to die in here?’ ‘I… really don’t know anything,’ he replied.” (page 58) One other way to survive is to not show any signs of rebellion or free speech. Expressing displeasure is especially prohibited.
