The direct and indirect characterization of Doodle shows the cruelty and how much the mentally handicapped were neglected in the time of the text in the story “The Scarlet Ibis”. The narrator directly characterized Doodle when he said, “He talked so much that we all quit listening to what he said.” This is showing they don’t care for Doodle.

They are treating him like the scarlet ibis when it was in pain and dying they just watched.

T tries to recreate his feelings by creating something else, “destruction after all is a form of creation”( Greene 55). While Trevor didn’t mean anything “personal”(Greene 60) that doesn't mean it’s ok to go to extremes by demolishing a house to feel better about what he lost.

Trevor's insanity makes him feel like he has to make someone feel horrible about what had happened to them to make himself feel better.

In the the poem “anyone lived in a pretty how town” by E.E. Cummings and in the novel The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald, both showed many signs of the people being careless, and all though there was death nobody really seemed to care. For one quote in the poem in line 25 it says “One day anyone died I guess” that shows that death is not a big factor and it seemed as they are very careless of it when it happens. It also shows that they are not important to other. They just bury you and keep it moving.
