On the Disillusionment of Life in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button



The short story The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,written by the famous American writer Fitzgerald,tells the story of the main character Button, who was born as an old man and then became more and more younger in reverse. Through the analysis of Button’s peculiar life experience, this paper shows the uncertainty of life, the selfishness and indifference of human nature and the disillusionment of Button’s life caused by the omnipresent threat of death.
