Have you ever dreamed that you could escape from reality? Woody Allen depicts the miserable main character as an escapist man in his book, "The Kuglemass Episode." The miserable man, Kuglemass, who is depressed with his life, starts to feel that he wants to change his life by thinking that he needs a new romance. Allen portrays Kuglemass well to reveal human psychology that everyone has experienced, so the main character's weak and immature personality can apply to many people. People want to have immediate gratifications when they face difficult problems. Kuglemass' thoughts are well-described human beings' weaknesses as no one wants to spend a lot of time to solve his or her problems because our minds are troubled day by day, so we either try to ignore our problems or solve them the easy way. This story truly shows how people behave when they struggle with reality.
