In any novel, society can often become the antagonist. The antagonist of a story is, basically, the person, place, or circumstances that prevent the protagonist (the main character) from getting or achieving whatever it is that he or she wants. Society can definitely do this by standing in the character's way, either by strict rules, peer pressure, bullying, ostracizing, or a refusal to accept someone that falls outside of normal parameters of action.
