Use of alliteration with ‘handle’ and ‘hold’ puts a strain on how delicate his body must be at this time. In ‘Nettles’ the poet gives us an image that even though he feels well and truly sorry for his dear son he wants him to learn from his mistakes. “We soothed him till his pain was not so raw.” The way he says, ‘not so raw’
Past experience has perhaps taught him that his relationship with his father is secure. In contrast, Scout is concerned about losing her close relationship with Atticus, as is demonstrated by her reluctance to continue going to school since her teacher has instructed her to tell her father "not to teach her
Caring for others is an important aspect of many relationships. Compare how caring for a loved one is presented in ‘The Manhunt’ and one other poem from the Relationships cluster. Both ‘The Manhunt’ by Simon Armitage and ‘Nettles’ by Vernon Scannell use military imagery to describe how the protagonists care for people close to them – ‘The Manhunt’ describes how a wife tends the physical and mental damage caused by her husband’s service in Bosnia, while ‘Nettles’ is a portrait of a father who wants protect his son, not only from hazards like stinging nettles but also from other things which may cause him pain later in life. ‘The Manhunt’ starts by describing the difficulty which the wife faces in getting both physically and emotionally close to her husband after he returns home injured. It takes time and patience, illustrated by the repetition of the phrase ‘Only then...’ in stanzas 2, 3 and 7.
He believes that one should live their life learning from their “mother and nurse and father and tutor” (18). One should follow in their footsteps “and if [they] obey, well and good; if not, [they are] straightened by threats and blows, like a piece of bent or warped wood.” It is his process of education. Protagorean moral education mainly gives a person habits, not knowledge, because they have to follow a certain pattern. Protagoras thinks by following these patterns, a person will be morally just. Socrates believes that there is moral knowledge but it cannot be taught.
In Joseph Boyden’s short story “Driving Lessons” there’s a contrast between life and death portrayed by two important events in the narrator’s life. The writing creates similarities between these two events to show us how the protagonist is reminded of the birth of his child by the death of a teen, as well as creating scenarios to represent the themes of each story. The first story portrays the death of a young boy by a teenager that shoots him in the chest. To begin the story the writer creates an “inky” night scenario that helps create more intensity for what is going to happen next. This kind of dark scenario gives us hints of the theme of this short story as a comparison between darkness and death.
The Daddy is always active as the describe the mom as standing there I feel that because the father doesn’t play the stereotypical father role this makes the mother to assume more guilt in the story. Instead of the mom cuddling the child the author wrote “Mommy over his shoulder invoking God until he sent her for towels and gauze if they had it, the Daddy moving quickly and well and his man's mind empty of everything but purpose”. Is this because of her character or the fact that most people don’t know what to do in the situation of a trauma, even if it is their own
Similarly, in the poem Wild Boy of the Road the parental hesitation is visible, “His mother is worrying about him… His mother is wishing her boy would come home.” The usage of the words worrying, boy and come home demonstrate the same feeling as in the story. Knowing that the child may struggle with different life issues alone is a difficult feeling for parents to contain. Furthermore, when a child is no longer surrounded by parental support and encouragement parents sense that their role has been reduced and
Recently I read the story “My Fathers Brain What Alzheimer’s Takes Away” by Jonathan Franzen in my English 101 course. In this story Jonathan Franzen speaks about his parent’s relationship before and after Alzheimer’s, how he viewed Alzheimer’s affecting their lives and his feelings towards his father’s death. Franzen also often illustrates his mothers struggle to deal with his father’s disease and the many emotions attached to it. He talks about how his father started to forget different things which eventually turned into forgetting many everyday things. Franzen explained that his father got lost in his own neighborhood in one instance and couldn’t remember his own children’s birthdays another.
They didnt understand the need for Noah to be there. The need for Allie to remember. Noah read to Allie to get her to remember the love they once shared. He needed that few minutes, when she remember, to believe that true love lived no matter what obsticals they had to overcome. I believe that Noah read to Allie for his own mental health.
When child gets a new toy from his or her parents, the child loves the parents very much. After the parents get the love, the parents return the love. The parents also start the love because if the parent did not love the child, the parents would never buy the present. Sometimes people who did not receive love as a child what for love to come to them before they return it. A man might wait for an “I love you,” from a girl before he returns it.
