In To Kill A Mockingbird Boo Radley is a man who always stays shut up inside of his house which causes many rumors about him to be spread around the town. For instance, at the end of chapter 14 it’s stated “Dill?”/ “Mm?”/ “Why do you reckon Boo Radley’s never run off?”/ Dill sighed a long sigh and turned away from me./ “Maybe he doesn 't have anywhere to run off to…” This shows how Boo Radley is emotionally struggling because people always are assuming things about him that can cause him to feel uncomfortable around others. At the end of the book Boo Radley acts afraid of everything like when it says “Will You take me home?’ He almost whispered it, in the voice of a child afraid of the dark.” After witnessing Jem, Scout, and Dill acting out his rumored “life story”, I infer that it must have been very weird and uncomfortable for Boo to be so close to “his children” when they were the ones who supposedly made fun of him. Emotionally he is struggling because he is overwhelmed by the fact that he is always a hot topic of the town, and the trio acting his story out didn’t make him feel any better. In the poem “Caged Bird” by Maya Angelou the last stanza is written “The caged bird sings/ with a fearful trill/ of things unknown/ but longed for still/and his tune is heard/ on the distant hill/ for the caged bird/sings of freedom.” Boo Radley

Most of the times that he wants to speak to his son peacefully something that Artie does has to bother him because during the Holocaust he had to be conservative with everything he used.One example that Artin and Vladkek’s relationship is bad because of the communication that they have because they have not been together and talked to each other in 2 years.With Mala, it’s even worse,he doesn’t support her and she doesen’t support him because they never communicate and more importantly they don’t have a meaningful relationship with her. Another factor is that Vladkek’s meaningful relationships were affected by the Holocaust is that Vladkek knows that there is no such thing as friends. He doesn’t have a strong and meaningful relationship with Artie because he never had a stable relationship with him. Int the flashback on the beginning of the book Vladkek say “Friends? There’s no such thing as Friends”,This means that Vladkek will never have meaningful relationships because he doesn’t believe in friends which is the most important factor of creating meaningful
Alfred Mikhael Mrs. Moniz ENG 1D9 October 29, 2017 Formal Literary Paragraph In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 Faber’s resistance and seclusion show that wisdom cannot exist in a society that cannot accept criticism.

Boo Radley is a mysterious recluse who was known for being a delinquent as a teenager. Many people in Maycomb believed the fabrications made about Boo because he isolated himself, a predilection that was unacceptable in Maycomb (Lee 11). The town created a fictitious profile of Boo and misjudged him. In the beginning of the novel, Boo Radley was portrayed as a monster that sparked the interest of Scout and Jem as they made various attempts to try to get Boo to leave his house. As the novel progresses, Scout and Jem realized that “Boo Radley's stayed shut up in the house all this time … because he wants to stay inside" (Lee 304).
White men weren’t allowed to go into a colored man’s room and were to be separated at all times. (Steinbeck 75).

Bottles At school they tell you ‘Don’t do drugs’, but at home I got a different message. A message that came to me, day after day, in the form of smelly beer bottles that cluttered my house. My parents, drunk and disorderly, fell asleep each night either too early or too late and would blame me for their headache. The painkillers they used came in the form of overpriced bottles of beer that ate away at our money like cockroaches. The house was a mess, and I never knew what to do; my homework, or clean.
He had no problem with the man himself, but he just absolutely detested the man’s eye to the point where he must rid him of it. Every night he would creep into the old man’s bedroom and stare at him and particularly his eye. He did this for about a week until one night the man was alerted and jumped up in bed. The narrator stood absolutely still in the dark room until he began to hear a thumping that he believed to be the old man’s heartbeat. It grew increasingly loud and being afraid the neighbours might hear it.
