In Anthem family is not valued greatly. “ Children are born each winter, but women never see their children and children never know their parents. Twice we have been sent to the palace of mating, but it is an ugly and shameful matter, of which we do not like to think”(pg.41). This shows family is not valued because they don’t have families to begin with, therefore they have nothing to value. Everyone in their society is unaware of where they came from or who they are related to unlike Harrison Bergeron.
He has a bad reputation that has to do with being evil and supernatural. The town of Maycomb has made up superstitions about him, they blame every mishap or misfortune, whether it is proven otherwise or not. There are also stories that are passed from family to family. Some include Boo stabbing his father in the leg and winding up in prison. Further tales involve him being in a gang, having powers, and being dead and haunting everyone.
In conclusion the loneliest character in the book was Curley's wife for what she has done in the past and because Curley has her isolated from everyone. Throughout the story she is never really talked about because Curley doesn't bring her up a lot so when she comes in the barn with Lennie it was here first time in a while talking to another guy other than Curley and that shows her isolation.
After her father’s death she went out very little; after her sweet heart went away, people hardly saw her at all. A few of the ladies had temerity to call but were not received, and the only sign of life about the place was the Negro man—a young man then—going in and out with a market basket. (Faulkner 2.1) Emily is isolated, her father throughout the course of her life isolated her from all men and Homer Barron’s death completely isolated her from everyone, this is what her father wanted, Emily to be
I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely” “(Steinbeck, 86). In the great barn, Curley’s wife walks in to be associated with Lennie’s company.However, workers have viewed her as a terrible person and a rouge. Georgie has told Lennie a lot of times not to socialize with her, because she is only trouble. Since he wants to attend the rabbits Lennie doesn’t want nothing to do with her.
In the protagonist’s family no one ever actually stood out of the crowd. Her parents protested in riots, yet they never did anything heroic. Marji on the other hand wanted to fight and she needed a role model. When her Uncle showed up, she right away created a bond with him. She never knew how much he would mean to her though.
Boo never goes outside so no one has ever spoken to him, no one knows if this actually happened. They also assume Boo is not the greatest person because, ¨… darkened to the color of the slate-gray yard around it. Rain-rotted shingles drooped…,” his living conditions are not good and the house looks creepy by itself (Lee 10). If you live in such a bad house, then you are automatically not a good person. They assume Boo
When we look into all of that we can conclude that she is lonely, she has no one to talk to no friends and no family she has no one except fir husband who doesn’t give her any attention, throughout the whole novella never do we ever see him and his wife encountering each other they are always looking for each other. She is looking for him, or he is looking for her, they are never together. So, I don’t blame her for what she is doing her life is not what she expected it to be she had hopes and dreams were crushed and ruined when she married Curley just like her death ruined and crushed George and Lennie’s hopes and
And even though he was a pioneer in the development of horror and the grotesque in American literature, not that many people think him first and foremost as a Southern writer. He had a unique and dark way of writing. His mysterious style of writing appeals to emotion and drama. Poe's most impressionable works of fiction are gothic. His stories tend to have the same recurring theme of either death, lost love or both.
In the novel The Ice Storm, by Rick Moody, Elena Hood is a quiet character.

She delivers a cold and unmotherly vibe towards her children whom never expect anything out of their mother. Elena prefers to stay in solitude and does not get involved with her children unless it’s to call them down for dinner. Elena’s relationship with her husband is dissipating quickly.
Harper Lee does a great job at making me feel sympathetic for Mayella because of her lack of education and the life she has been to.“Long’s he keeps on calling‘ me ma’am an sayin’ Miss Mayella.

To begin, when Grendel is first introduced he is alone, watching and casting questions towards a ram and the sky, however he receives no answer. This is a first look into the mindset of this descendent of Cain, Grendel has no one to speak to. Later on, when his mother is introduced, it is revealed that she is incapable of verbally speaking with her son. This lack of communication creates a canyon between Grendel and his mother, one that no bridge can cover. There is no mother or God to guide or teach him the ways of socialization, and so, he is isolated; watching the lives of others through a crack in a wall.
People were unable to get help when they needed it. Some police officers and firefighters left with their families because they were scared. Bus drivers and city officials also were unavailable to help when the city needed it. With nobody to help, people had nobody to count on. (cnn.com).
Growing up was difficult to say the least for me, as well as my parents. We lived in a small house, in a small town of about 2,000 people in rural Arkansas. No one spoke Spanish and we had no family in America so we were pretty lonely for a while. Still, my parents never really seemed to mind that they couldn’t read anything or speak to anybody. After countless conversations with my parents throughout the years, I understand that their indifference to their
He would never understand that because he’s probably never had someone try to shove him in a box that he knows he has no business being in. One of the last comments on the post was, “So what. Does it really change your life or hurt you at all?”. He simply didn’t care. All these people seemed to fail to understand the issue.
