Outcast Theme in a Novel, a Film and a Song

- Authors, to illustrate the issues with society, usually use the outcast, a figure banished from or disliked by the community. The person who stands out or comes off as different, usually gets the title of outcast.

The constant human condition of needing to feel more powerful than others drives people to call others, “outcasts.” The Outsiders, a great novel about outcasts, uses a group of people, the greasers, as the outcasts of the story....   [tags: Rejection, Prejudice, Bullying]

The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock

- The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock by T.S. Eliot is a striking poem that takes the form of a dramatic monologue. It is an internal dialogue and, because of this, there is a suggestion of something that is not said plainly and directly on the surface, a sort of underlying feeling put into words. At times it seems that it is really Prufrock’s subconscious mind speaking. However, over the course of the poem, Prufrock seems to be shining an almost pathetic light on himself. This is most clearly shown through his failure actually to succeed in his “love song” and acquire a lover, his allusions to Hamlet and fools, and his constant worry over what seem to be trivial anxieties....   [tags: Poetry]
