This demonstrates that Billy created the Tralfamadorians and the planet Tralfamadore as a way to cope with the trauma he sustained while being held captive in the Slaughterhouse. The tralfamadorians/germans reconfirm Billy’s schizophrenia because in his head he’s living in a state of delusion. In this state, Billy has no control of himself and his surroundings. This is the result of Billy’s external locus of control and delusion of control,which is a symptom of schizophrenia. Delusion of control is the “Belief that one’s thoughts or actions are being controlled by outside, alien forces.
First, both Frankenstein and “Allegory of the Cave” show the idea of being hidden from the truth. “Allegory of the Cave” is an allegory where 3 prisoners were tied up in a cave and forced to face the cave wall since childhood. A fire is behind them, with people walking beside it, so the prisoners see the shadows of the things they are holding. But one prisoner is released, and told that the shadows, his “reality”, is not true and only an illusion.

With a racing heart and fearful thoughts, the same person sits limply tied up in a bloody cell and nervously in a lavishly decorated one, vulnerable and defenseless to their captors. Elizabeth Wein’s historical fiction Code Name Verity puts the reader in the position of the captive, a Scottish spy who delineates on her surroundings from a hazardous position.

“One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” is a book written by Ken Kesey about a group of men living in an unforgiving mental ward, filled with many unjust guidelines and rules. In that book, it tells the story of Chief Bromden, a patient at a mental ward, and Randle McMurphy, another patient who has recently been admitted into the mental ward. When McMurphy arrives, he begins to stir up trouble with Nurse Ratched, who controls everything and everyone in the ward.

McMurphy doesn't believe in a world full of conformists, where everyone is the same, and where life revolves
The title, Hole in My Life, has multiple meanings. On a literal note, the term “hole” is prison slang, meaning isolation: “One morning Mr. Bow took me down to the hole, which was a corridor of isolation cells under the hospital wing, when he was doing basic medical rounds” (184). Gantos was in the “hole,” which could be part of what the title represents. Moreover, Gantos will likely struggle getting jobs in the future, due to his criminal record, leaving a hole where he could have been pursuing his writing career as an intern. Lastly, Gantos still displays dislike for his past: “Even now, when walking some of Boston’s meaner streets, I find myself moving like a knife, carving my way around people, cutting myself out of their picture and leaving
The author, Edgar Allan Poe, uses the catacombs settings to build suspense in The Cask of Amontillado. As the main character and Fortunato proceed through the catacombs, the narrator tells the reader, “We had passed through walls of piled bones, with casks and puncheons intermingling, into the inmost recesses of the catacombs” (6). The author uses the creepy setting of many dead bodies all over the catacombs in order to keep the reader interested on the story. Because the cavern is so dark, it adds a mysterious component to the story. The reader does not know what will happen because the characters can not see very much due to the low light of the torches.
Night: The Psychology of Evil “The line between good and evil is permeable and almost anyone can be induced to cross it when pressured by situational forces,” said Philip Zimbardo after his 1971 Stanford mock trial prison experiment. Throughout the Zimbardo experiment, Zimbardo defined many terms such as dehumanization and deindividuation. Like Zimbardo, Eliezer, a young Jew from 1944 who was deported to multiple concentration camps and also wrote the novel Night, faced copious German militants who abused their power by dehumanizing their fellow humans by taking away essential items for human life such as food, drink, and freedom. Through the countless number of years that humanity has existed, victimizers who have been given power over others have chosen to abuse their fellow humans and make them victims of their rule. To study how power affects human nature, various psychological studies have been conducted to explain such behavior.
Imagery is another way of a visual descriptive of the authors thoughts inside the book. As we look inside the book, This Way for the Gas Ladies and Gentlemen, had many views of prisoners held to be kept inside the gas chambers for them to die. This Way for the Gas, Ladies And Gentlemen was one of these violent, horrific, and terrifying books ever to be made. The main purpose of imagery is to visualize whatever thoughts or ideas you came up with, so you will be able to discuss these scenarios. Throughout the book, the author focuses more on prisoners and their daily lives inside the concentration camps.
In the case of D-503, he too, like Winston, despises I-330 when he is first accustomed to her. He states that ‘her tone was so full of impudent, so full of mockery… I always hated her’ however, although he ‘swear[s] this was a total surprise’ and that he ‘could not possibly have desired what happened next’ his sexual passion caused him to sit on the floor begging ‘now, right now, this minute’. I-330, like Julia uses her body to draw men in and then presents to them her political beliefs, during their first time alone in the Ancient House, I-330 changes from her Party uniform into a dress. Through this gesture, I-330 is consciously offering D-503 a choice between her and the government.
Author, George Orwell, conveys a dark and rocky relationship in his famous book 1984. In the scene I inspected specifically, the narrator describes a tension-filled room, their main purpose- to show the horrific effect of Room 101 and how it emotionally ruins the people involved in it. This scene engages readers with its twists and turns in the setting and it's downright “doomsday” mentality. It takes an ominous turn of course, ending on a pessimistic note. 1984 takes the small amount of optimism left and throws it out the window.
George Orwell’s novel, 1984 and The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, both share fear as a common theme. Fear as a tool can control, change, and force people to do things that do not seem acceptable, such as make people turn on others, become violent, and forgo their belief system. Fear can be used in many different ways, such as controlling a population of people to gain power or wealth. In The Time Machine, a group of people called the Eloi, had direct power over another group called the Morlocks. In 1984, one small group of people called the “brother hood” had complete control of society.
Throughout the course of the move, 1984, by George Orwell, the concept of an ominous and omniscient protector conflicted Winston Smith, the protagonist. He gazed at Big Brother’s “mustachioed great face” with fear that exemplified the party's workings. In this world of dismay, Winston is seemingly unique in his disgust. With all this considered, the following depicts Winston’s psyche and development in the novel.
