? One thing I saw a lot of in this novel is people willfully looking past instead of confronting the truth. The narrator repeatedly states people’s inability to see what they don’t want to see, their inability to see what their prejudice doesn’t allow them to see, has pushed him into a life of effective invisibility. But prejudice against others is not the only kind of blindness in the book. Many characters also don’t acknowledge truths about themselves or their communities, and this refusal is shown in the imagery of vision and invisibility.
This provoked from the audience a yearning for a connection. The unusual and introverted posture signified his lack of self-confidence and engaged the audience further by intriguing them to know more about Henry and his mental illness.

Standish also regularly held his hands around his crotch, comically relieving the audience of intense dramatic moods and powerful tensions through his erotically focussed thoughts and actions. Standish’s portrayal of sexual frustration and the habit of making lascivious jokes were entertaining for the audience, yet not engaging.
This stubbornness was shown through his characters Captain Veere in Billy Budd and Bartleby in the story "Bartleby the Scrivener." Melville was also passively resistant and he shows this through his characters Billy Budd and Bartleby. Herman Melville portrayed himself in his writing by giving personality traits to his literary characters that were similar to the ones he himself possessed. 	Melville had a strong desire to reveal the complexities of human life, so mystery was often a trait of his characters. An example of this would be his character Bartleby. Throughout the story, the reader has no clue what Bartleby is thinking, so Melville creates an air of mystery about this character.
He also easily misconstrues psychological facts making his position difficult to fully agree with for its lack of truth (Zipes). Bettelheim observes only certain aspects of the tales and their connection to children, and often dismisses or overlooks other aspects such as the way children learn and what they get out of the fairy tale in actuality. Through his book, critical essays from Gale, psychological support, and fairy tales themselves, refuting Bettelheim seems to be an effortless task; but his work still deserves some qualification for his attentive style and should not be completely released. James Heisig reviews Bettelheim’s work in Uses of Enchantment.

(III, i, 91) Hamlet blames his inability to act out his impulses on these moral standards that have been ingrained into his conscience. He finds the restrictions in his world unbearable because it is confined within religious and social class barriers. As a young man, Hamlet's mind is full of many questions about the events that occur during his complicated life. This leads to the next two categories of his mind. His need to seek the truth and his lack of confidence in his own impulses.
Indeed, it’s as if the book was intentionally written to be difficult to chew. If so, then Dom Casmurro is a satire of the very reader, in that it fails to meet their expectations. One way Dom Casmurro fails to meet expectations is that the main character, Bento, is an unreliable protagonist. For example, Bento shows time and time again that he is a biased narrator. The entire novel is written in his perspective with little recognition if any, of Capitu’s side of the story.
By doing so, the sin becomes overwhelming. Throughout the novel, multiple opportunities arise for Amir to overcome the silence, such as confessing to Ali, disregarding society’s opinions of Hassan, braving Baba, and forgiving himself. After the incident occurs Ali, questions, “‘Did something happen to him, Amir agha? Something he’s not telling me?’” (81). Although Amir knows the exact cause of Hassan’s strange behavior, he remains silent because
The question posed is, who is the real hero, Mc Murphy or Chief Bromden? Well this is no easy question to answer, but in order for me to begin to think along those lines I have to explain what impression each character had on me. In the beginning I was not connected to Chief Bromden. I had a hard time relating to and understanding his character, which to me did not stand out as anything significant but fit the typical picture of what a mentally insane person would be. At times it seemed as though his thoughts were erratic, for instance, when he was describing the black boys talking in a huddle as "the humming of black machinery", or comparing Ms. Ratched's chest as a "manufacturers defect."
He often questioned wheather his authority was true or not. Roger Chillingworth suffered the least, because he only failed to reveal the secret that he knew, the father of the child who Hester Prynne was forced to live with. This small restriction to his life forced him to suffer "internally". I had different likes and dislikes in the novel The Scarlet Letter. There were many things that needed to be judged to fit into the given catagories, including; character attitudes, and character decisions.
Arthur Dimmesdale faces many challenges throughout the course of the novel, which causes him to evolve. Despite his many good qualities, he does not confess, while Hester Prynne gets publicly shamed for the sin they committed together. This adds up to the reader’s lack of empathy for Dimmesdale. He plays the role of “human frailty and sorrow.” The activities Hester and Dimmesdale engage in are completely unacceptable in the Puritan society. Arthur Dimmesdale is a Puritan minister, he is expected to be the representation of Puritan faith, so he refrains from disclosing the truth.
