About imprisonment in our own body. Alienated by appearance. Written by someone who is watching him. Very descriptive. He's an outsider. Dreams about meeting the perfect woman (his opposite). The children make fun of him because he is different. He is treated like an animal 'To his kennel in the dark' - even lower than dogs in the society.
'a solitary mister' - emphasises lonliness.
Ironic that he enjoys the open spaces but feels trapped.
Wild boys associated with nature.
Talks alot about nature. He is close to nature.
