Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Violence in "Celia Behind Me" and "The Bully"
The two stories, Celia Behind Me by Isabel
and The Bully by James
both show how violence can deeply impact and even change those experiencing it. Both stories also examine how violence can take many forms, including physical and psychological and how much of such violence is faced from an early age. Both stories are told from the first person perspective, the narrator looking back at his or her childhood.

What is also disturbing is that the violence can take many forms (physical, psychological) and have many consequences including turning the victim towards violence. The two narrators’ later lives were profoundly affected by their experiences.
