At Home at the Zoo

It can be observed that Jerry creates three interdependent states of mind: a sense of thwarted belongingness, a sense of burdensomeness, and the acquired capacity to commit suicide. These states allowed Jerry to accomplish self-destruction successfully in response to his absurd existence. Key words: Social alienation; the theater of the absurd; the interpersonal-psychological theory of suicidal behavior; the sense of thwarted belongingness; the myth of Sisyphus. A successful suicide demands good organization and a cool head, both of which are usually incompatible with the suicidal state of mind. Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted. Jerry disturbing Peter in Central Park, New York, has no other purpose than to orchestrate his own death successfully, a paradox that is only implied at the end because it is not an issue that Jerry clearly states from the beginning. Understanding the reasons why Jerry develops a suicidal behavior and why he finally succeeds requires a cautious examination because, as defined by Jimenez and Cardiel , suicide involves complex and multifactorial manifestations related to personal, psychological, biological, and social concerns.
