The reader sympathizes with the peddler from the beginning. He just roamed around on the streets, carrying the rattraps he made, searching for shelter at night during snow days. It was not only his miserable state that made the reader empathize with him but also the ideology he formed about the world. He was never welcomed at any place and often shooed away and considered a nuisance. This made him believe that the world was a rattrap and all these human emotions and luxuries are the bait for the trap and he should avoid them. Hence, he detached himself from everyone and went through the suffering alone.
