We can tell that the writer resents and is frustrated by his father as it says “and he being him can’t help but say.......... and I, being me” which shows that he is frustrated at their relationship. However the Harmonium is used to describe his father so therefore his family life whereas in Nettles it is reversed. The Nettles, that had caused pain for the boy, is actually describing soldiers and war therefore the underlying message is not about family but about war and the underlying message
He commented, “I’m not the person I thought I would turn out to be” and “I’m disappointed in myself”. He reports being able to "keep it together" at work and that his work in not suffering at this stage. He has become more restless and irritable with people, especially in social situations which he describes as excruciating and pointless. Introduction While there are a large number of psychotherapy approaches that could be effective in treating Anthony and his symptoms, the two therapies I have selected to compare and apply to Anthony's case are Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Client-Centered Therapy (CCT). I will first provide a brief overview of each approach, then conduct a comparison of both.
McEwan tells the story through his first person narrator, Joe. His ideas come across as contrasting, maybe hinting at his future lack of structure as a result of these events and the trauma they cause. The first sentence in the chapter is ‘The beginning is simple to mark,’ however in this chapter alone there are many theories and ideas thrown out there despite very little information being given away. He explains this by saying later “I am holding back the laying information”…”because this was a time when other outcomes were still possible”. With this, Joe describes many things in his current situation such as his girlfriend and the different settings in a large amount of detail, however, the one thing he does not describe once and the reader is given no information on is Joe himself- this could have a deeper meaning in the sense that Joe may be a man who always thinks about other people (however this may be contrasted with his deep sorrow and feeling of selfishness for releasing the balloon).
Iris’ great mind deteriorates until she is reduced to a mere remnant of her former self, unable to perform simple tasks and completely reliant on her, at times frustrated, yet devoted husband John, who cares for her in their home until her death. Alzheimer’s disease had a profound effect on Iris, as well as her family and friends. Iris goes from being a tremendously successful novelist to not understanding which side of an open door she should pass in order to get through it. As she loses touch with reality and experiences more and more difficulty in speaking and understanding, the most moving scenes are the ones that show the suffering that her husband goes through. As the disease was beginning to set in, Iris begins showing signs of forgetfulness, but it never appears the viewer that John truly understands what is happening.
“Seeing” is a major symbol throughout the story, and when analyzed so much more can be understood about the characters, and the theme of the story. The name Seymour, but pronounced “see-more” tells the reader that he interrupts society in a different more realistic light. He did not always have this view point, but during the war he was exposed to life or death situations, and had to live on the bare essentials. Upon coming back to the United States he realized that people were very materialistic, and lived what he thought were fake lives. Muriel is more concerned about her appearance than her husband’s emotions, and reads women’s magazines while Seymour reads poetry.
Bartleby was basically hired for copying the text but eventually he started refusing the work requested by the lawyer. The story reflects the mental and physical breakdown of the character Bartleby through the eyes of other people. Even as the story progresses and different people come into contact with Bartleby, he remains unchanged. The narrator repeatedly states that “Bartleby did nothing but stand at his window in his dead-wall revery” (Melville 607). This is yet another way that Bartleby’s static character, along with his flat nature, is shown.
Fitzgerald chooses to portray some characters from the very beginning explicitly as being flawed. Myrtle and George are examples of explicitly portrayed flawed characters. Daisy and Gatsby appear flawless until the reader learns more about them throughout the novel. Once the reader understands more about the internal characteristics of the character, it becomes blatantly obvious although they appear flawless externally they are extremely flawed internally. Gatsby is flawed internally as he is still holding onto some little dream that he refuses to let go of, of Daisy & him getting back together.
But in line 3, the author wrote that, “I take my curses back”(line4) and “I am sorry for that evil wish” (line 7). The author feels sorry of parents and wants to apologize to them, but his parents died. He never has the chance to talk to them any more. It shows the tone of regret in this poem. Besides, the tone of the other poem “Seed-Merchant’s Son” is also anger at the beginning.
