Yet under all the ranks and nobility, he is nothing more than a coward that can not accept the idea of his fate. When Hamlet is given the role of vigilante he "swears" that he is man enough for the job. However when Hamlet does not kill Claudius outright, he begins to lose his vigor. The prince suspiciously admits that he is "mad" and uses it as an excuse to keep prolonging the inevitable fate that he must face. By toppling over this hurdle, Hamlet tries to find reasons why he does not have the tenacity for revenge.
However, the peace established by Ralph is soon compromised by the hunters of the group, led by a boy named Jack. Jack challenges the leadership of Ralph and, through appeal to selfishness and fear, captures the allegiance of most of the boys. Following the ascension of Jack to power, the story quickly turns for the worse as human nature begins to tear the boys’ sense of order to pieces and drive them to savagery. Though Jack’s role in the group initially starts as one of cooperation, the end of the novel leaves more beast than human. In The Lord of the Flies, Jack’s progressive decent from an envious to a demonic self parallels how human nature drives men to savagery and war.
Kingshaw’s suffering mostly comes from his mother’s atitude, but he is so used to also being alone that he dosen’t attemp to save himself or ask for help, he gives up taking death as an easier option than persistance and fighting. Susan Hill’s cinematic view, helps to create tension and increases the characters feelings. The theme loneliness is carried through the whole book. It is actually the principal subject and doesen’t even get better at the end. As well as leading one of the characters to suicide, the loneliness remais because Hooper got what he wanted at the end but he is in fact still alone and miseralble with the same deterring father and Miss Kingshaw.
Lennie's loneliness mainly comes from the fact that he is both developmentally disabled and physically overbearing. His disability sometimes causes others at the ranch to turn away from him; even to the point of thinking he is "cuckoo." Since Lennie cannot think as quickly as the other men, he is often put aside and cut off from them. He is unable to take an active part in conversations because George, Lennie's best friend and travelling companion, is the only one who can understand him. In George’s act of killing Lennie, his only friend, he actually ensures his own continued loneliness.
But the ego along with the man's inability to "neither draw nor hold his sheath knife"(157) caused him not to be able to kill the dog. The aura of death was prevalent. Realizing that he no longer had dominion over his own body as well as accepting his making a "fool of himself"(158) he had to accept the inevitable. Not only did he have to accept death, he had to acknowledge that the Old-Timer was right when warning him about traveling alone. Ironically, while the man was dying, he was angry at the dog because of its natural warmth, instincts that he had, and the survival skills that the dog used.
Seen as a source of support by his parents and a tool to be exploited by his boss, he had always been separate, never truly seen as the human he believes him self to be. He perceived himself as a human, as normal, and indeed under the flesh, he is, but to everyone else he was a monster. Though the inability and unwillingness of others to communicate with him, both before and after his metamorphosis, Gregor became isolated and separated, perceived from the outside as inhuman and vile. However, locked deep within him and unable to be expressed laid a deep, emotional humanity, unable to be shown. Kafka tells us that communication is the only way to break through the screen of incorrect perception, but that very few a... ... middle of paper ... ...cal body to the ones that he loves.
We can also add, that Hamlet does not have enough courage and he is afraid of remorse. But we have to remember, that although the young prince does not have strong psyche and i... ... middle of paper ... ...s poetical and philosophical nature is not ready to hoist the weight, fallen on him after his father's death. The sadness after father's death, marriage of his mother, lack of strong will, and other aspects which make up on the prince's mental problems show how fragile human psyche can be, and how easy we can destroy the peace of human consciousness. Hamlet is a perfect example of duality of human nature. He wants to take revenge on the murderer of his loving father, but at the same time his morality and sensibility as well as his egoistic and selfish needs prevent him from doing it.
Literally it is not possible to hear the beating of a heart, but inflating his distress in being seized makes Ralph paranoid. Now that Jack’s boys no longer have inhibition or morality, there is only one outcome of confrontation with one; death. In addition, Golding also chooses to use third person to physically describe Ralph and exhibit his terror from an external viewpoint. Golding states “Ralph stirred restlessly in his sleep” showing his physical upset state rather than mental as first person point of view had done (198). Ralph sleeping unsoundly displays his inner turmoil, and builds tension for the following action scenes.
From the way he acted in the movie, we can tell that he has no character and is pure evil. Judging from the movie and book, we can also infer that the animals had a miserable life and were tricked out of their freedom. Even though they were free from Jones, they still had to deal with Napoleon . Both the movie and book prove that the animals were not better off with Napoleon than they were with Jones. The animals were still hungry, tired, and miserable, in reality, the only animal who benefited from Rebellion was Napoleon himself.
He “didn’t really like life at all.”(Vonnegut 102). This shows that although he is a survivor, life meant nothing because of what he must live with. He would welcome death because it would put him out of his misery and endless torture. Mr. Campbell from the novel
