The father's protectiveness is very evident many times throughout the novel, however one of the most notable events was when a man threatens his son with a knife and the father shoots the man in the head. Although this action was probably necessary, the fathers downfall is his suspicion that everyone is their enemy. His father's paranoia causes them to move constantly from camp to camp, consequently, never getting the chance to make friends with anyone. His son, on the other hand, is much more sensitive and innocent. He feels very safe with his father but at the same time he questions some of his decisions.

Although he may not understand what happened in his past, he feels he is chained to it and that his life is already set for him. Throughout the story The Misfit behaves in ways that show he doesn’t want to live the life he has, but he feels obligated to fill in the gaps that his past has created. The Misfit is very similar to the father in a short called “The Boat”. The father works extremely hard on a boat in the harbor to support his family. He has a son that helps him, daughters that help around the house and a very old-fashioned wife that disapproves of many things that make him happy.
A Hero In today’s society, many people are considered and called hero. However, who is really worthy enough being called a hero?

Through the prologue of Goodbye Lemon , Davies wants to convey to his audience that you can bring any character to life through writing. Jack had brought Dexter back to life (as Jack states in the last line of the prologue) although he did not have any memory of him, other than the fateful day Dexter died. Storytelling is vital here because people often twist their memories as they write, because they want to get a point across to their readers. Jack tries to bring back memories of who Dexter could have been by writing different scenarios, thus bending his memories in order to find out something about his brother who he does not remember. That which is demanded by ethics greatly
On the exterior, Tim Burton’s 2003 fantasy film Big Fish seems detail a young man’s journey to sift through his father’s tall tales, in a seeming effort to find the truth. In the film, Will Bloom (Billy Crudup) explores his father Edward Bloom’s (Albert Finney/Ewan McGregor) past through the retelling of stories he has heard over and over again as a child. Throughout the film, Will discovers that there is indeed a line between fact and truth, and the film’s conclusive scene where Will finishes his father’s story is critical in the fact that it supports a constructivist version of self, where one’s self is the presented identity, and there is no essentialist version of self. Thus it seems that the film’s final concluding point is that all we are is the story we tell about ourselves and that the self-conscious individual defines themselves, rather than letting the environment define them. In examining the overarching role of Big Fish in fleshing out and supporting the constructivist version of self, the concept of social constructionism and essentialism must be broken down.
