Near the end of Cannery Row, John Steinbeck includes a story about a gopher. Even though it seems random, this story is actually a parable about Doc and his realization that he will always feel alone despite being surrounded by the denizens of Cannery Row. The similarities between the gopher and Doc are apparent after viewing the quotes from the poem Black Marigolds in the surrounding chapters, quotes from other characters, and the descriptions of the rats and rattlesnakes at the end of the book. Both the gopher and Doc are dissatisfied despite having perfect lives. The gopher had it all.

He is clearly not the most popular kid in class. He disgusts the teacher so much that sends him home stating, “Please bathe yourself before you come back tomorrow.”
For example, Boo Radley is not accepted because he does not fit into the social normalization that he should.. This is obvious by the way Jem describes Boo when he says, “There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped and he drooled most of the time” (Lee 16).

In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee, Lee shows all throughout the novel that someone’s perspective can change in a matter of seconds.
