The worst feeling is not being alone, it is feeling forgotten by someone you would never forget.

Boo, remains hidden for firstly, getting involved with the wrong crowd of people, and secondly executing an immoral wrongdoing, stabbing his father.

Curley treats her as a possession by isolating her and forcing her to stay in his “house alla time.” Even Crooks, Lennie, and Candy– a crippled “nigger”, a “dum-dum” and a “lousy ol’ sheep” – refuse to talk to her, suggesting that being a merely being a woman is the worst kind of ‘disability’. Steinbeck uses this hierarchal disparity to illustrate the injustice of sexism. Steinbeck further protests this injustice when Curley’s wife reveals she has a “dream”, yet is too “lonely” to tell anyone else. She has “nobody” to share her thoughts and feelings with because of her sex. Her death represents the futility of trying to overcome sexist prejudice – she dies trying to confide her loneliness in Lennie – and Steinbeck uses this fact to emphasise the extent to which sexism defines her life.

Gregor was not an honest person and could not be trusted for a minute, and had given a good reason why the boss sent the manager to his house immediately when he was late for work. What if Gregor always felt sorry for himself but in reality was an immoral and selfish man who wanted others to see him as the poor man who did everything for his family and did not deserve all what happened to him. Gregor could have been a man who manipulated with his family and used his sickness as an excuse for not going to work. He avoided his manager because he knew that the manager would make him go to work if he saw him as the manager would see clearly that there was nothing wrong with Gregor. Gregor’s mother was blind because mothers always believe their children and Gregor was well aware of this, and knew how to manipulate with his mother.
At a young age Allen garnered the nickname ‘Red’, due to his deformed, red left arm. He was also abandoned by his parents because of it. No one could connect the Exorcist Allen with the nameless circus freak he once was. Defensive, bratty, rude, and even though he was secretly lonely and miserable, these same behaviors protected him – by driving others away.

Yet you, my creator, detest and spurn me, they creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation off one of us.” (Shelley, 86) Even though Monster kills, he is seen a the more sympathetic character because he shows emotion and is rejected by Dr. Frankenstein who pushes the boundaries of science, but refuses to accept responsibility for his

He said he would be willing to let his father back into his life if he was willing to change, and he wasn’t. This hurt Ellis even more because he felt like he was a disappointment to his family because at that point, he cut all of his family out of his life. This played a major role in the writing of American Psycho.

They were seen as juvenile delinquents by society, people who should be feared and were reckless. Everyone thought they were irresponsible and uncaring, hard people. Bob was the best buddy I could have asked for and after his death, I felt hatred and revenge towards all greasers. When I read in the newspaper about how Ponyboy and Johnny saved them kids I was held in awe. I’m not saying socs are good people but it would take a lot of courage and guts to run into a burning building for people you didn’t even know.
