Guilt is a normal feeling an individual have when they feel like the lost of someone or something was an outcome of them not fulfilling a certain duty they were supposed to do. Also the feeling of failing on doing something in certain way that would have save them misery. For Charlie -the guilt he can not live with- is not just losing his friend Michael for he is not the only loved one, he lost his favorite aunt too, Aunt Helen. Aunt Helen was the only relative in the book who is named despite her absence in the novel and she plays an important role in Charlie’s life. Charlie keeps mentioning her in his letters so many times as he recalls their memories together, he even visit her grave occasionally.
Upon his death, a great sense of relief roams his family; a feeling that is not obtained in such situations normally. Ever since childhood, we automatically associate loyalty with family, yet little did we know that a capitalistic society and its way of thinking could get between these two terms, particularly the latter. Kafka reflects that, realistically, his odd fiction narrative can become a reality, when cornered by such society. Even Grete, the only one that took care of Gregor, seems to resent her brother after facing poverty and blames him for their current financial status. Kafka demonstrates that society's norms have the power to adjust normality, according to its desires.
We can all learn a thing a two from our elders and can never stop learning. We are all grateful for the sacrifices my father and his father made. Children are treated very strictly by their parents. But aunts and uncles are much nicer to their nephews and nieces. I remember I was not allowed to hang out with certain kids if my mom saw them as the trouble maker types.
Observing the love and affection between others only increases the effect his own solitude has on him. He is aware of his otherness and knows that he is “shut out from intercourse” (84) with the people he holds so dear. It can be argued that this is the point where the creature’s humanity is the strongest throughout the course of story. He has a basic understanding of human societies, he speaks and reads their language, shows compassion and, most importantly, seeks their company and friendship. In his knowledge that social belonging is the missing component to his own happiness, he confronts the people he secretly observed only to, once again, be met with fear and anger (94-95).
As the story progresses, Gregor becomes aware of his waning humanity because of his lack of interaction with the other members of the family. His degradation as a human, however, began before his physical transformation, due to his ceaseless devotion to work. Informing the audience of the Samsa family’s backstory, at one point the narrator states that “They had been good times and they had never come again, at least not with the same splendour, even though Gregor had later earned so much that he was in a position to bear the costs of the whole family, and did bear them. They had even got used to it, both Gregor and the family, they took the money with gratitude and he was glad to provide it, although there was no longer much warm affection given in return” (Samsa 15). The narrator’s statement encapsulates the tragic path that Gregor took.
All the monster wants is love. The Monster is the victim because his creator abandons him, his appearance affects his relationship with the people he meets, and his desire to feel loved. To begin, his creator abandons him. Victor creates Frankenstein, but is afraid of him. “He might have spoken, but I did not hear; one hand was stretched out, seemingly to detain me, but I escaped and rushed down stairs” (Shelley 44).
He married them thinking it would stop the fighting between two households, and it did, but the young pair had to die in the process of making it so. His helping moved the story along and also kept Romeo and Juliet from killing themselves early on in the story. By advising them he advanced the plot and told them what they should do to be with each other, and to keep Juliet from being married to two men at once. Romeo 's rash decision on killing himself threw all of the Friar 's help down the drain. The result of Friar Lawrence 's council still ended with Romeo and Juliet 's untimely
“[He] was able to escape the worst of [his] culture’s inheritance. And uneasy though [he is] about [his] new life, [he] cannot whine about it,” (253). The Hillbilly culture is full of poverty, however it explodes with family values and support from those who don’t battle with addiction. J.D. claims that, “the life [he] leads now was the stuff of fantasy during [his] childhood.
When Mr. Porter slipped on ice I was very worried then relieved as I saw Shelly come to help. He got up without her help because he is very independent which I found quite annoying, I understand why he liked to be independent but it 's only normal to ask for help. Another incident was when the little boy was afraid of him, during this time I felt really bad and realize all the pain he must have felt. I believe has a truly a strong person for all that he went through. Throughout the movie I was always very proud of Mr. Porter especially when he won salesman of the year.
The people in the lines are people who have strayed away from their family in order to find a more beneficial life. The “bitterness they harvest”( line 11) is the anger of not feeling true love and mirth. In another line it states, “There you find the gladdest play-ground, there the happiest spot to live.”(line 22) the personification in the lines illuminates the idea that families that stay together are the happiest because they can find joy in any part of the world as long as they are together having fun. Identically, “A circle at the fireside that no power but death can break.” (line 4) is an example of an idiom. Though not many will see or catch the definitive meaning or purpose of the line, the line has been put there to accentuate the idea of having an impregnable bond with family members; nevertheless, this ties back to the main idea of love being able to manifest between
