He does not have any contact with anyone but his customers, and fellow cabbies. In his cab, he feels the most comfortable there because he is away from everything in a state of loneliness. In scene 53:10 Travis stated, “Loneliness has followed me my whole life. Everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere.
Indivisible because no matter how rough his life is, he just keeps going, he keeps going till death. He’s received abuse, he’s been taking from his family, he leaves his friends and he just wants to go home. He IS indivisible. Invisible because in those times, it was better not to be seen. When he ran, he was invisible, no one ran after him and he was gone.
In the poem by Peter Fischl he is talking about how he regretted not speaking up for the little boy and felt bad because no one else spoke up for the little polish boy and he wants to make the boy memorable, " I would make a monument of you and the world who said nothing ' ' (Fischl 8-9). In detail for Fischl he wants us to remember this little boy and he is making one feel emotional for the boy because no one spoke up for him. Fischl is realizing that he needs to do whatever he can do to have this little polish boy be remembered for being taken away. In Night by Elie Wiesel he states his whole experience in Auschwitz and he makes a huge impact on the reader. "All I had to do was wait two weeks"(Wiesel 81).
On page 52 Henry Drummond said ““I understand what Bert’s going through. It’s the loneliest feeling in the world - to find yourself standing up when everybody else is sitting down...Walking down an empty street, listening to the sound of your own footsteps.” This quote means that it’s hard to be alone, standing up when everyone is against you. You’re lonely and cautious of all of your surroundings, hearing your own footsteps and you think it’s someone following you. Henry Drummond used this quote because the whole town hated Cates at this point. No one in the town besides his girlfriend.

Finally, he sat up and opened his eyes. No one else was in the barn.
The “Scarlet Ibis” and Frankenstein Comparison Imagine working so hard to get what you want, only to realize your work was in vain. When wanting something so bad, people let emotions take over, not thinking about the big picture. In Hurst's “The Scarlet Ibis”, and Shelly’s Frankenstein, the main character leaves their work in a no-win situation. In James Hurst’s short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” the narrator teaches his brother to walk because of his selfish desires. When asked why he wants to teach his brother to walk he says he does not want to do more work.
How Doodle 's brother was only thinking of himself. First, he was embarrassed of having a brother that couldn 't walk. Second, he didn 't want to haul him around everywhere.

In James Hurst’s “The Scarlet Ibis,” strong forces lead to loss too soon. Doodle was not the most ideal brother, leading to turmoil inside the boy. To him, Doodle was an embarrassment, leading to a powerful urge to make him walk (Hurst 112). Sometimes family isn’t perfect, but it is what it is; there is no choice. The boy needed to not let him get ahead of himself.
He’s invisible, a walking personification of the negative,....your dream sir! The mechanical man! (pg 94). The vet description of the narrator is that of an invisible man; a man who cannot think for himself or completely ‘woke’.
