It is very possible for almost anyone who reads this article has met Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein. I myself had not heard of until a fortnight ago when a very good and learned friend, Rafael Francesconi, I quoted a phrase of his over lunch, “as Wittgenstein said, said Rafael, men say that animals do not think they do not speak but Ilos animals simply do not talk! ” There I was interested in that character which, inexplicably, had never been reported. I looked, no luck, his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus in another library. Then I found on the internet, his biography, along with other writings about their ideas and read them eagerly. A related site: Keith Yamashita mentions similar findings. In fact, Wittgenstein deserves the place of one of the most influential thoughts in this century. Born in 1889 in a very cultured and wealthy family in Vienna. As a child, endowed with genius and musical sensitivity, he dreamed of being an orchestra conductor but never tried. His life in that troubled period from 1889 to 1951 which crumbled the great European empires, they subverted the social order with the Russian Revolution shook the western world with the recession of 29 and mankind suffered from Nazi-fascist reaction.

This man lived the two world wars, the introduction of American political power and sharp changes in customs, morals, art, politics and technology. After going to school in Linz and Berlin, he enrolled at Manchester as a student of aeronautical engineering, but this was his true vocation. So, soon decides to go to Trinity College of Cambridge to study philosophy, following this time, yes, his real passion. .

The part external it party is an agitated environment, collective, but its interior world, its feelings and its mind are imbudos of a total abandonment, solitary. The modern life if it shows repleta of attractive for the people, the advent of the new technologies, the Internet, are elements created to brighten up the solitude of the men and women. But the market of work, its competitive character, backwards as consequence a feeling of distanciamento between the people. To the step that these advanced techniques of communication approach the people they cause a certain abyss, as for the isolation. In accordance with ARAUJO (2009, p.4: The question of the solitude is one of biggest packs of the modern man. Each human being already discovered by itself that although all the difficulties gifts, need if to relate with its half one, and in case that it does not make it, it must arcar with definitive consequences. Perhaps cruelest of all they are the fact of the solitude to force the individual to one will autoavaliaro emotional and affective and almost always the subjective note is very low. The affirmation above suggests in them that from the solitude state the citizen makes a questioning, an evaluation on the reason to be alone.

In this direction you distress it appears them, frustrations and the guilt. It can many times, to think that he is not somebody capable thing to please the other and therefore to be solitary. The study of this subject he possesss relevance in the direction to extend the quarrel on the treatment of the solitude in literature. To construct this article I cover some stages: of beginning, I will analyze stories of Abreu (2005) and Bridges (2008) having demonstrated to its content, making one brief communication concerning the plot and of the related personages; immediately afterwards I look for to relate these authors investigating the similarities and differences between them and in its way to work the subject solitude.
