In Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron, certain devices weigh down the main character in order to equalize him with the others. This short story is dystopian; an offshoot to Orwell’s utopian world. Winston too is weighed down by his own society; he is forced to be a lesser version of himself, all for Big Brother. They don’t do anything to physically change him, but if he is thought to break the rules or is simply too smart for his own good, off to the Ministry of Love.

Holden’s greatest fear is that children will lose their innocence when exposed to the harsh realities of the adult world, such as profanity. He knows that it is impossible to get rid of all profanity written on wall everywhere, but he tries to overcome his fear because it is important to him that children do not see it. Holden shows true courageousness in the way he relentlessly tries to shield the innocent and conquer his fear. Holden explains that he is a pacifist and that he does not really like violence.
Therefore, he would much rather have children stay young and pure for the remainder of their lives, instead of growing up. As a result, Holden is using everything in his power to prevent others from maturing, or losing their innocence. When Holden is visiting the Museum of Natural History before his date with Sally, he mentions, “The best

Before Gatsby became tainted, "he had been beating his way along the south shore of Lake Superior as a clam-digger... or in any other capacity that

This is important because it shows Holden fear of growing up and changing because he feels alone and isolated because he is growing up and through growing up things change and he changes and he is lost now. Holden wants to join society but he is afraid of rejection, failure, and etc that all comes with growing up and figuring out who you

However, she wants him to stay longer, but Romeo understands the danger, because "more light and light" brings the possibility of capture and death (Act 3, Scene 5). During, Act 3, Scene 5, Romeo seems like he uses rational thought and maturity, by pointing this out to Juliet.
