The contextual description study is used with the purpose to analyze the short story Misery.The result of the study shows that basic needs (physiological needs, safetyneeds, love and belonging needs, and esteem needs) which cannot be fulfilled will make complex problems. In order to solve his problems, he tries to talk to his passenger, but he is neglected. There is an imbalance between Ionaâ€™s need and desire so he misses many things.
