It is crystal clear that the loneliest character in Of Mice and Men is Crooks. He was rejected to play cards, and to enter the bunkhouse, just because he is colored. He also has an unwelcoming personality that repels people from getting close to him. John Steinbeck clearly expresses loneliness primarily through Crooks than the other characters who are also considered lonely. “People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true.
Autism is a mental condition that causes difficulty in communicating and forming relationships, but a lot of people do not realize the signs, therefore, it is easy to criticize. Some characters overlook stereotypes while others stand by them confidently. All the characters in this short story prove the theme in separate ways, such as Bub, his wife, and Beulah, Robert’s wife. Firstly, Bub stereotyped Robert all built on how he thought blind people were supposed to act. Carver wrote, “In the movies, the blind moved slowly and never laughed” (261).
Atticus teaches his children, Scout and Jem the important lesson of placing oneself in another’s position before going to judge him or her by asking them not to bother a character called Boo Radley. Boo Radley, a man never seen outside his house, ever, has superstition and rumors about him in the society of Maycomb since he never comes out. When Scout and Jem cannot get Boo to come out of his house, Scout remembered that earlier, Atticus had told her that “‘...if [she can] learn a simple trick, [she’ll] get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. [She’ll] never really understand a person until [she considers] things from his point of view...until [she climbs] into his skin and [walks] around in it’” (39). Atticus knows that there is a reason why Boo Radley does not come out of his house, why he told Scout and Jem not to bother him.
Furthermore, both Nick and Jay Gatsby reside in the West Egg to indicate that they have not transformed into members of the social elite, and no amount of hard work can change the families that they came from. It is clear that both men recognize this, as they unconsciously denounce their backgrounds in the novel as Gatsby changed his name because “His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people-his imagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all. The truth was that Jay Gatsby...sprang from a Platonic conception of himself... So he invented just the sort of Jay Gatsby that a seventeen- year- old boy would like to invent” and Nick creates the illusion that his family comes from a line of nobility as he says “The Carraways are something of a clan, and we have a tradition that we’re descended from the Dukes of Buccleuch , but the actual founder of my line was my grandfather's brother, who came here in fifty-one, sent a substitute to the Civil War, and started the wholesale hardware business that my father carries on to-day” (Fitzgerald 98
“The Fall of the House of Usher” explores the theme of sanity and the effects it can have on people. Having many fears and choosing to not face them can result in the deterioration of people. In Roderick’s case, he spends much of his time feeling scared, so he becomes insane. Ironically, Roderick becomes “a victim to the terrors he anticipated” (15). The aspects of the story such as the house and his sister loom upon him with darkness because he cannot overcome his

Darry always gets mad at Ponyboy without asking the reason for Ponyboy’s affairs.

Witchcraft in Salem brought out the true colors in Abigail Williams and everyone in the community with how they reacted to the situation. The same thing happened with McCarthyism but it only brought out McCarthy’s bad side and the citizens good side in the McCarthy era. With having the fear of either communism or witchcraft come into your city the emotion of fear takes over everyone. An example of fear rising in a city would be communism trying to take over America and then an “obscure US senator” rises and tries to fix the communism problem but then only makes it worsts. Everyone is impacted with fear no matter how they deal with this emotion it doesn’t go away unless you find where the problem is coming from, for instance the acustions in both The Crucible and the McCarthy era both started with one person telling a
Therefore, there would have been no bloodshed in Korea. And now, the most pointless war in history of mankind, the Vietnam war, fought literally because the American government didn’t want communism anywhere, yet they overlooked the fact that south Vietnam’s leader was a horrible man who didn’t believe in human rights and that the guerillas of the Viet Cohn were not massacring the citizens of south Korea, but were actually coming to peoples’ homes and helping them with their farms. All they did was share their communist beliefs, they didn’t even force them upon them, and most of the south Vietnamese liked the idea. North Vietnam didn’t even use brutal tactics against their people, like most “communist” countries. Doesn’t sound like a problem, riiiiiiiight?
Mr. and Mrs. Hadley had practically no relationship with their children because they had allowed the house to take over their roles as parents. The children’s behavior had gotten far out of hand; their thoughts even converted to dark violence. Their mother and father gave up on even attempting to fix anything, for they knew the kids wouldn’t be obedient. During the short story, the veldt was displayed inside of the nursery, The room had a technology that allowed the mind to choose what appeared as the scenery, which made it look and feel realistic. What was bizarre about the veldt, was that it had never seemed to change.
When Matt was brought to the Big House, he found out that he was a clone of El Patrón, one of the most powerful people in the country. Afterwards, he was brought to Rose, a servant, to be taken care of. Just like most other people in the house, she treated Matt poorly. For example, she gave him deep litter that he was allergic to and she also both verbally and physically abused him. It wasn’t until one day, when Celia was passing by and saw Matt.
After hours of waiting, the jury came back in. Scout explains how “A jury never looks at the defendant if it has convicted, and when this jury came in, not one of them looked at Tom Robinson… Judge Taylor was polling the jury; ‘ Guilty...Guilty...Guilty’”(211) When Scout and Jem hear the verdict, they are distraught. As they were walking home, “It was Jem’s turn to cry.. ‘It’s not right, Atticus’”(212)
The novel Frankenstein and the movie Edward Scissorhands is a mix between monstrosity, sadness, rejection, loneliness, and the want of having someone. I will thematically be comparing and contrasting the novel Frankenstein to the movie Edward Scissorhands. Similar themes between the two are creation and isolation from society. The two monsters are the same in the aspect of being created by man. The two creatures are isolated from society for the first part of their existence.
“If you’ve ever had that feeling of loneliness, of being an outsider, it never quite leaves you. You can’t be happy or successful or whatever, but that thing still stays with in you.” says Burton. Burton usually has an outcast in every film. The outcast is usually a lead role or the lead role, because Burton can relate to it most. Burton’s unique and dark fantasy includes the use of lighting and mise en scène to convey the idea that outsiders do not want to be labeled.
