East Of Eden

When a person is rejected they form a resentment towards others. This
resentment forms anger. "And with rejection comes anger"(steinbeck, p. 355)
This is a way rejection leads to anger. Resentment can start at an early age
and never go away. Cathy was rejected as a child and then she grew up with
resentment in her creating evil. The resentment never went away so the evil
just built up. This is a step in the direction of crime and guilt.
Revenge is pursued when a person is rejected by others. With revenge
comes more evil and crime. "I am sure my self that there would be fewer
jails"(Steinbeck p.355) Revenge causes people to do bad things which gets them
into trouble. When revenge takes over the person becomes obsessed and they tend
to go physco." I think that if rejection could be amputated, the human would not
be who he is. Maybe there would be fewer crazy people"(Steinbeck p.355) The
people are crazy becasue they have been rejected and obsessed with revenge.
This revenge just manifests to crime and more evil.
After anger and revenge the person commits crime and goes crazy they
then go through guilt. Guilt comes after the person is obsses with revenge.
"One, child refused the love he craves, kicks the cat and hides his secret
guilt:.(Steinbeck p.355) Guilt builds up and then hidden which only causes more
problems. Guilt is natural and is human nature but can be controlled."And with
crime guilt, and there is the story of mankind".(Steinbeck p.355) After anger
comes the revenge which leads to crime and then after the crime guilt sets in.
