Away From Reality
In "Paul's Case", Paul is running away from reality and all of his troubles. Paul has been living a life full of trouble and he is very depressed. The events leading up to his runaway were that he was suspended and kicked out of school, lost his job, and was not given enough attention and care at home. When Paul steals the money and escapes to NYC, he escapes his reality and finally lives the life he has always wanted to live in one of the nicest hotels in the city. He is successful in the way that he was able to live the life for nine days. He is trying to show that it is possible to escape reality but one should accept reality because it is hard to "escape" it without being caught.
