His shell shock is exacerbated by the fact the medical field didn’t fully understand or acknowledge the seriousness of shell shock during that time. Neither his family nor his doctors had any idea what he was dealing with or how to help him. War and his mental illness were the cause of Septimus feeling separate from life. Separate mentally and emotionally.
The character of John Procter in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible was a great example of a truly tragic hero. He measured up to every one of Aristotle’s requirements. He was not a perfect person because he had many faults and was not completely good or bad. Best of all, he knew that he was not perfect and he recognized and regretted the errors that he made throughout his life. Then, after the reader stays with Procter while he confessed all of his horrible sins for the whole town to hear, he had was a massive downfall as the result.
He drank to make himself feel better but it just made him angrier. Many adolecesents go through the same problems as Holden does. They have no one to turn to. So they dig deeper into this hole and can't face life. However, no matter what, losing a loved one is probably the most painful loss a person can face.
Finny's death is no less than a heartbreaking calamity. He was one of the truly good people in the world, who possessed no inner evil. He was crushed by the hate in the world, and his life was taken from him. In Knowles' A Separate Peace, Gene starts with his many fears, including his insecurities which were also the root of his anger. Once he is angry, he allows that anger to grow into catastrophic levels so that he develops a huge hatred of Finny.

The amount of anger a person feels at this stage is inexorable. Doctors, nurses, closed ones and every other person; are victimized by the person’s anger whether or not they are at fault. Even the law of nature is faulty of completing its course. Kubler-Ross and Kessler defined anger as being an anchor and “giving temporary structure to the nothingness of loss.” Anger is meaningful in the light of darkness.
Although they do not share the same take/or view on grief, what can be implied is that they are both experiencing the 5 stages of grief. The book on A Grief Observed, and The Death of Ivan Ilych show how grief must be processed through all stages and accepted to successfully move past a
I started yet another school and tried to make friends into my Sophomore year. My Freshman year of high school I had been diagnosed with Anxiety disorder, this happened about a month before that tornado. My Sophomore year of high school went pretty well, I made a few friends and some of my friends from Moore started the same school. The summer before my Junior year was a difficult one. I lost my grandfather, my dad’s step-father, a family pet that we had had since we lived in Washington, and I lost my close friend more into the school year that year.
And then, I had to perform all the cultural rituals for thirteen days. The situation went worse the moment I tried to communicate that tragic moment with my brothers and all other family members who lived in abroad. Besides these, mother used to be the source of our family bondage and timely reunion. The untimely death of mother took our guardian and sense of belongingness of a family member. The love of mother was the source of our joint family.
He understood that he was treating everybody cruelly, but he still could not seem to grasp the strings that controlled his life. He felt horrendous and he loathed the man that he had become. He eventually grew exhausted of himself and he gradually stripped himself of the monster and found himself once again; he finally became the man that he and his family knew and loved.
