He never does what his heart tells him to do when he confronts his co-worker, Cheryl Melhoff, to show her the hopeless crush he has on her; neither when he confronts hi new boss (name). This led him to slip into fantasies about the things he would like to experience. It is possible to
Stevenson could have said this in many ways. One being, “Walter told me those week had left him devastated and he found himself confined in ways he could never have imagined.” However, he decided to write it in a way where readers could insert themselves into the situation and feel for his client. Stevenson’s use of pathos is overall effective and helps him to prove his points about the injustice justice
This shows that Huck can’t stand it for very long to be under someone’s roof with rules that keep him in line. Civilization seems boring and unnecessary to him. He dislikes it so much, throughout his adventure he has to lie his way through every situation he gets into. When he had to lie about being a girl so he could get the news in the town and he talked to the lady in the quiet house
Mood of Sadness Compare/Contrast Both Night and "Life is Beautiful" have the same mood of sadness but are shown differently. Eliezer, his father, and Guido all experience the sadness of the camp, but Joshua never experiences the sadness for himself. For example in "Life is Beautiful" Guido makes the camp a game for Joshua, so he never knows what is really happening in the camp (“Life is Beautiful”, 2000). Also Guido never shows Joshua the real sadness and pain he is feeling after the long day of hard work. On the other hand, Eliezer and his father both go through the sadness of the camps.

Willy has become fully engaged in his daydreams and consistently talks to people who are not real.

Linda, who is clearly content with a mediocre life, tries to mask over the realities of Willy’s inability to be content with the status quo (not being successful). Linda provides a petting voice to soothe a burning desire of Willy’s forward thinking state of mind, which yearns advancement and change.
Perhaps things could have been different if Bowkers friends were in town, or not going to school somewhere else. O’Brien states, “Sally Kramer, who picture he had once carried in his wallet was one who married” (132). And his father whom was a baseball fanatic didn’t help him. Often he didn’t have anyone around; he continues his old habits that he recalled about the war. Humping around the lake alone with no one to vent about how the war.
The short story and the 1947 film place Walter in an everyday atmosphere where he is surrounded by friends and family members. In both pieces, Walter is scolded for his tangents by those around him. In the short story Mitty’s wife proclaims, “It’s one of those days. I wish you’d let Dr. Renshaw look you over.” She makes this statement after Walter experiences his first of many daydreams in the short story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”.
During the course of the film, Citizen Kane included very dim lighting, sometimes to the point where only silhouettes could be seen. While the newspaper reporters review Kane’s life in the beginning of the movie, everybody’s face is engulfed in shadow, which emphasizes the isolation Kane felt consistently during his life. Kane, despite his wealth, never had a dependent source of love or support. Welles shows that Kane is completely and utterly alone with the darkness; even in his death, a room full of people want to invade his privacy purely for the press, not to mourn or offer respect. Additionally, Finch uses low-key lighting to reveal Zuckerberg's conflict at the start of the movie.
The film has a lot of iconography and symbolization. Joel is the anti-social and lonely man. His life is repetitive and boring. Clementine is the carefree, spontaneous and impulsive woman. However, when they were together, Clementine completed Joel.
Before he leaves though, he "yell[s] at the top of [his] goddam voice, 'Sleep tight, ya morons ' " (68)! Although it is a shame, any reader can see that Holden seems to have nothing going right or in a positive way all because of his negative attitude. Therefore, this attitude leads him to almost care about nothing. Though Holden may seem to be a lost cause because of his negative attitude, he thankfully has an epiphany that changes his view towards the world because he realizes that people have to grow up. When Holden visits his younger sister, Phoebe, he is happy to see her, but when they begin talking their conversation turns negative.
She no longer feels love for Montag. She is addicted to her TV ‘family’ and her seashells, which are like earbuds. Mildred sees no color in the world around her, but when she has her technology she feels happiness, “Again and again the dark space of their bedroom is stressed, its coldness and silence; whereas Millie’s favorite soap operas keep up a conversation hubbub and medley of bright colors” (Mancini). Society believes Mildred is depressed due to technology, but it is her way ‘out of the real world’ when there is no one else around. Even though she is brainwashed, it is a source of encouragement when she feels like killing herself.
I also do not think it is right how he just let some of the employees go without talking to them. One of the employees in the movie was let go years ago and never told, but due to an error that employee still got paid. When the error was found he never took the employee aside to talk to him. Mr. Lumbergh’s assistant was told just to keep telling the employee that he was busy and would find time to talk to him eventually. That type of behavior is unacceptable.
