Unfortunately for them, Lennie has a mental disability which causes his brain to function as a child’s brain, this disability creates many conflicts throughout the novella. They met many characters that were divergent from the rest of the workers, such as Crooks, Curley’s wife, and Candy. Steinbeck used dialogue between characters to present his belief that loneliness and isolation are caused by both social barriers and personal choice. Candy is set apart from the rest of the workers due to his old age and his strong bond with his dog who eventually was killed. Candy is first introduced as “a tall stoop-shouldered old man”(18), indicating to the audience he is old.
Throughout the novel, Finny denies various painful truths, such as Gene’s betrayal and the war, and focuses on enjoyment rather than competition because it is too difficult for him to confront reality and betray his facade of peace and happiness. When Finny tumbled out of the tree, after Gene jostled the branch, he was unable to accept the truth that Gene pushed him out of the tree, as it was too painful for him. Even after Gene travels to Finny’s house and exclaimed that he had jostled the branch, Finny still could not believe that someone he thought was his best friend could do this. Finny vehemently denied Gene’s claim, even going as far to command him to “Sit down, you damn fool” (Knowles 62).
For his character it is important to the story that he lives a double life since it gives the book some mystery. For most of Boo’s life he has always stayed in his house and the town does not know what he is like. For example in the first chapter Jem is describing to Dill and Scout what Boo might look like, he says “...judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained… There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time” (Lee 16).
In the intense and terrible circumstances, Gene becomes a mature person and grows into a real soldier that makes it home safe from the war and his internal own battles. Elwin Lepellier, also known as Leper, is an example of another character that goes through an extremely sobering experience during 1942-43. Leper is shown as a benign and passive sort of character from Gene’s perspective. He is portrayed as a follower but is seen refusing to do activities he doesn 't feel comfortable doing, but he continues to tag along with the rest of The Suicide Society. This is evident when he refuses to jump from the tree and declines Gene’s pass during Blitzball.
He doesn't even consider his friends’ suggestions or pay them any attention. Hamlet draws a sword on his friends forcing them to let him go and follows the mysterious ghost into the forest without any contemplation. Hamlet is basically thinking to himself “what is there to lose?” He doesn't find much value in his life. This is known because of how many times he contemplates life or death in the story.
This reminds me of how in the book Wringer, Palmer feels guilty about a mistake he made. When he is hiding his pet pigeon, Nipper, from the world who wants to kill him, he accidentally left one of Nipper’s toys in his room for the critics to see. When the town finds out about Nipper, Palmer is forced to give him away, which makes him unhappy and remorseful. This is like how Stanley made one mistake and ended up regretting it, as well as paying for that mistake. Stanley needs to think about the bigger picture and imagine what he looks like to the people around him.
As time passes, Brian started thinking back to the events that have led to him being stranded in the forest, Brian thinks about the word "divorce." to Brian, he thinks it is a word meaning, “a tearing, ugly word that meant fights and yelling” Brian also starts to think about the word "secret," or rather, about the secret that he knows about his mother, a secret that he hasn 't shared with anyone. Thinking about all this, Brian feels his eyes start to burn and tear up, but he doesn 't cry. He glances at the pilot to make sure the tears weren 't noticed, and the pilot smiles, asking Brian if he 's ever flown in the copilot 's seat before. Brian says no, he hasn 't.
Johnny expresses this by standing up against Dally when Dally was attempting to flirt with Cherry and Marcia at the movies. Johnny saw that they did not like it and told Dally to back off. Johnny became nervous when Dally looked at him. Nobody told him to back off, but because Johnny was the pet
In many dystopian compositions, the characters In The Giver by Lois Lowry, Jonas, the receiver of memory chooses to return all the memories back to his communities so that they could have a life with emotions, color, and diversity. In The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street by Rod Serling, members of the street were being very paranoid because some aliens came to their community to raid them. They had played with the neighbors, which lead to false accusations on each other. Jonas and the residents of the community show paranoia because they were second guessing their peers, they were hoping that no false accusations happen on them, and also because they want to protect themselves and their loved ones so that nothing bad happens to them.
