The creature was never named, cared for, and even loved. Appearance is a major theme in the novel because that is why he was never named, Victor was disgusted by his looks and abandoned him. “Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even YOU turned from me in disgust?” (insert chapter) The creature was shocked when he first saw how wretched and hideous he was. He was watching the beautiful De Lacey family, and was horrified when he saw his appearance.
The men on the ranch travel by themselves and have no real connections to each other. Curley's wife spends her days wandering around the ranch, hoping someone will be open to having a conversation with. Crooks is completely isolate and has to live in a small room next to the barn because he has a different skin tone compared to all the ranch workers. Lastly, Candy feels lonely and isolated since he is separated from the other men after losing his hand and losing his dog. I think one of the morals of the story is that everyone needs someone to talk to in order to survive.
People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
He is not treated fairly when he was accused of rape. Lennie never raped the girl, however he never got a chance to share his side of the story, because of his disability, and the circumstances of the situation were then assumed. Lennie wanted to pet the girls dress because it was soft. “ “Jus’ wanted to feel that girls dress-jus’ wanted to pet it like a mouse.” ” (10) This example is one of many that lead us to believe that Lennie was
Mayella had no say in the trial, which caused her to have no power. The Ewell’s had little to no money at all, and struggled with class. The family lived behind a dump. In the trial with Tom Robinson, Mayella was scared to tell the truth because of the looks her dad was giving her when it was her turn to speak. Mayella was almost forced to say Tom Robinson raped her or her dad would have beaten her.
The two men Billy remember from the missing person’s reports, when he saw the names in her guest book. But before this, Billy says no names have been in the log book since these two other men. It only becomes tremendously suspicious and uncanny when Dahl implements her dialogue to be, “I stuff all my little pets myself when they pass away”… Although this makes the Landlady seem very insane and crazy, if we were to refer back to the idea of gender stereotypes and the possible inference of sexual connotations; Dahl maybe want to prove that stereotypically you should not judge someone by their title, nor their role. They can be insane, strong, happy, sad etc regardless of gender. As a short story I liked it and could have analyzed it through a number of different theories.
The characters in these books fight against the injustice to make their world more fair. Characters from The Outsiders experience injustice and fight against it. Greasers experience injustice in behalf of the fact that they are poor. This is confirmed with: “Greasers can’t walk alone too much or they’ll get jumped, or someone will come by and scream ‘Greaser!’ at them…”(Hinton 2). Greasers are judged for being poor, but the rich kids aren’t judged when they break the law for fun, when the greasers can barely obtain enough money to eat.
After being judged and treated terribly for so long, he is racist to himself. This act of self-racism/self discrimination shows the reader how unequal Crooks feels. Another key factor is that he is not born into slavery like most African-Americans at the time. This quotation shows that Crooks is not like what he calls the “southern negro.” Now at the ranch, he is looked at like a southerner, being the only black man on the ranch. For his skin being a different color from the others, he is secluded into his own room, he is not allowed to play cards or go out with the guys, and has no one to open up to or speak
Isolation from society does not teach social interaction, causes regret about oneself, provides one with negative feelings, and causes regretful actions. Frankenstein's description of the creature present him as disgusting and horrifying. The description of the creature makes him feel as if he is unwanted, his father rejected him, so he became an outsider and was isolated from the rest of society, since he believes no one cares for him. In society nowadays, there is a large fear of social interaction due to the overprotection of parents. For example, psychiatrists are concerned with child development patterns of adolescents who were overprotected during their childhood and do not know how to properly interact with
