Wing Biddlebaum allows people’s perceptions of him to alter how he views himself and lives his life. Though he was a person that knew what he loved and found his calling, Wing transforms into meek, timid man afraid of expressing who he truly is. Society pushes people to conform, and when a person does not or cannot conform they are often ridiculed. Wing is an example of the effects inflicted upon a person due to the pressures and powers society possesses. By illustrating the power that people possess and how strongly people seek validation from others, the author is able to express the need for a change in society.
In any story with a recurring dark theme there always must be an outsider from humanity who somehow stands out from the seemingly equal community. In the case of Shakespeare’s Othello the outsider from humanity would be Iago for he truly stands out from the rest of society. Although Othello may be physically put out of the community, it seems that on an emotional and egotistical level Iago puts himself out of society further then Othello’s blackness does. He is not merely manipulative, as other villains are; he turns aspects of truth and good qualities, which he does not possess, and uses them as weakness for his own scheme. He deceives people to follow his plans by telling them the truth and what seems to be good advice.

Mercutio is a very loyal friend especially to Romeo where Tybalt treats the boy like trash.
This is something that is extremely common in sociopaths. Meursault also acts without realizing the repercussions of any of his actions. It can be seen through his conversations with the people around him that whenever he is asked a question, Meursault shows a complete disregard for the feelings of anyone else, and is brutally honest with people because of his social ineptness. Rather than telling people what they would want to hear, as an act to give the best impression of himself on others, Meursault says whatever is on his mind which commonly results in strange reactions from the “normal” people he is in conversation with. This lack of concern for the emotional well-being of others and his effect on that shows another very important example of Meursault 's affliction of being a textbook
Both psychopaths and sociopaths lack a moral compass. They are normally unable of sympathizing with the feelings of others, and an absence the set of integrities that tend to keep society from liquefying into a chaotic mess where everyone only looks out for themselves. Characteristically, the psychopath is the one that you’ll have no idea is hiding behind the face he displays to people every day. The psychopath is well-spoken and compelling, and even though he can have a cold-hearted and uncaring edge, he makes up for it in the next sentence. The sociopath lets a little more of his inner self come through; often he is muddled, hasty in his speech, effortlessly annoyed, and rapid to show his temper.

Merely recognising a man’s artwork in his eyes would not be understanding Michaelangelo, in order to fully grasp an artist’s purpose, you yourself need to have undergone similar struggles.

Prufrock, as a man of indecision, longs to be like him, determined, successful, admired, but he cannot be. The repetition of this phrase suggests that the connotations of Michaelangelo are not positive and are rather a ha... ... middle of paper ... ...e -> signals that he still sees him inferior to the common man, however by drowning in the sea, he suggests that the flaws of humanity, and himself alike, will lead to their respective demise • In which i have lived like a foot -> she comes closer than prufrock at recognition of own fault o Foot goes inside the shoe, the shoe is like a shell.

While nearly all the boys on the island ignore those standards British society has taught them, Ralph does not, and, as leader, tries to apply them to society on the island. Even when everyone else reverts to his inborn evil nature, Ralph sticks with that which is good, that which he learned from British society – civility. Ralph is different than the other boys, and because of that difference, it is only fitting that he cry.
He lacks any credibility for his motives and takes great pleasure in his ability to destroy the lives of Othello, Desdemona, Cassio, and Emilia. He created all the madness in the play but was never caught until the end finally arrived. Iago said it himself, “ I am not what I am” (1.1.62). He proves this clearly that he seems like he is always watching out for people when really he is out to devastate the lives of so many. Even though Iago was successful in eliminating Othello and the others, he was not victorious in the end because the problems he caused, deaths especially, cannot be resolved.
