“Oscar Isolation Comparison”
Oscars isolation mostly consisted of him keeping to himself and being a nerd with all the syfy stuff and his lack of social skills. But for other characters like Belli and Abelard it wasn’t their fault that they were isolated. For Oscar, he was the reason that he was isolated, no one else is responsible for the fact that he was not engaging with others. Oscar had two girlfriends at a point but it didn’t last long. Another reason why Oscar was isolated is because he lacks more of a manly attitude for example Maritsa and Oscar were having relationship issues and his mom told him to slap her but Oscar refuses.
Then for Abelard, his isolation was not his fault it was mostly because of Trujillo. Abelard was thrown in prison for unclear reasons and ended up kicking the bucket in prison. This might have occurred because Abelard was speaking badly about Trujillo. For Oscar, he doesn’t even want to try to communicate unless it’s with a girl and even then, his relationship skills are terrible. One example is when Yunior tried to help him not even out of friendship but out of pity and Oscar didn’t seem to want to be helped.
Oscar is always being pinned as a nerd throughout the novel and he just doesn’t say anything. If he is not trying to get a girlfriend, he is in a book or watching some sort of syfy flick. For Belicia her isolation stems from her rough childhood. Beli was an orphan as a child but was then adopted by the La Inca family at the age of nine. Because of her past she was a tough parent which in turn didn’t help her relationship with Oscar and Lola her son and daughter.
They never explained why Oscar acted the way that he did, but maybe it was because of his mom Beli being tough on him. It could have also been because of the countless “friends” that made fun of him. When Yunior tried to help, him socialize Oscar acted aggressive and pushed him. Even when people try to help him he still prefers to be alone. Oscar eventually became very depressed and just shut down altogether.
In the end Oscar was a dynamic character that never accepted help from the few people that tried to help him. Oscar would rather die than let someone try and help him and that’s exactly what happened. Then his mother joined him a few years later. The fukku ended up taking its target and life went on. In conclusion Oscar could have changed if he tried to socialize instead of staying locked up being a nerd.
