Quick Questions About Fight Club...?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I'm trying to understand Fight Club entirely.

I only have a few questions. I have some ideas but am not REALLY sure if they are the right answers.

#1: What does the protagonist deeply want? And what is he working against?

(My guess: self-destruction, does not fit society's standards of happiness, to do all the things he secretly wants... not sure about these answers. Not sure what he's working against.)

#2 Why does the protagonist REALLY  create Tyler Durden?


#3 What is the conflict of Fight Club and why?


These questions all tie and relate with eachother. I'm just trying to understand it as a whole.

I look forward to your replies. Thanks.
