Everyone in the city follows the schedule from their House and are punished when they fail to follow their schedule. The city’s strict schedules prevent the people their freedom to be in charge of themselves. The Saint of the Pyre had “a thin thread of blood running from the corner of their mouth” when being punished to death for speaking the Unspeakable Word (Rand).

The Price family’s politics mirror the politics between imperialist powers and target countries. Just as the majority of imperialist powers disregard the lives and desires of civilians living in their target countries, Nathan Price, the symbol of an imperialist power for the Price family, did not take into consideration any of his family’s needs, eventually resulting in inevitable tragedy and loss of his family. As the perpetuator of numerous injustices against his family, Nathan was blamed for both the tragedy and his own abandonment. While Nathan is to blame for most all of the events in the novel, the narrators of the story feel guilt simply being involved and doing nothing to stop him. The Poisonwood Bible is, comprehensively, a lesson on imperialism portrayed through a long-term, personal
In John Gardner’s novel Grendel the tale is portrayed from Grendel’s point of view, a villain who wreaks havoc on Hrothgar’s lands and leaves his citizens in fear. This affects the way we construe the theme of isolation in the novel which makes Grendel appear increasingly more innocent than the readers expect, and he is also victimized by the citizens, which causes him to be a recluse in society. Multiple times, Grendel attempts to conversate with the people, but he has been secluded for so many years that nobody can comprehend his words “Talking, talking, spinning a spell, pale skin of words that closes me in like a coffin.

Moreover, the employers follow a policy of isolation where they remove the documents and no one around them can speak their language except for their employer and they are also denied access to health care and other sources of assistance. The victims are fearful of the law enforcement agencies and therefore fail to recognize assistance as the victims are often told that if they come into contact with law enforcement, then their condition shall be worse than what is currently happening to them. There is a threat of exposure as the victims feel that they have failed and are ashamed from the society as result of which it results in them being trapped in similar kind of
They have been bullied at school. They have been denied basic privileges at work. They have been barred from establishments and ridiculed in public places.
