Also, he is ashamed of allowing his family to see him the way he is. Besides the couple of nurses that take care of him, he has no one and nothing to live for. Joe Bunham, now injured with no limbs, suffered through the pain that no 20 year old should be going through. The war altered his life to a point where one questions the point of living. What happened to him during the war mentally changed his view on what his future should really be.
She began to shut herself from her husband and most importantly, her son. The mother-son relationship has clearly died off. The lack of communication between Beth and Conrad affected Conrad in many ways. Beth’s cold attitude towards Conrad leads to his anger and how he wants to be left alone from everyone, including his father. Beth shuts out Cal from showing her real emotions on her favorite son’s accidental death, and lack of communication with Conrad brings the Jarrett family into an interpersonally distant family.
Diane might believe this is a wrongful termination because she is unreliable due excessive sick children. However, there has been no documentation to the matter or performance reviews that mention that she has been counseled on absenteeism. Greg on the other hand could believe that because he cannot work weekends due to religious reasons or disparate treatment he was let go. Cost Club is downsizing therefore, there will be no weekends work to perform or reasonable accommodations to be made on either side. Greg will not win the case based in religion discrimination.
He was allowed to live there, but he was ignored by his friends, considered as low as a helot in rank, and his daughters were refused husbands. The other man to survive the battle was a messenger sent by Leonidas to Thessaly - he was unable to endure the shame and hanged
His mother, however, wasn’t interested in this idea at all, and discouraged him from enlisting. When he finally did, she didn’t have a sweet, loving speech for him. She just says that if he is ever in a situation where he will be killed or do something wrong, he should go with his feelings. With that, Henry left his home and entered his army duty. He hadn’t seen his enemies yet,
If he would have used some sort of intellect and compassion in understanding his children’s aching hearts, their emotional collapse could have been prevented. Anse never acted as a stanchion – he by no means showed love or compassion for anyone throughout the book, especially his luckless children. With his inability to take action and foresee situations, Anse’s blatant faults overtly parallel every disaster in the novel. Other characters in As I Lay Dying who were more rational and not part of the Bundren family (Peabody, Samson, Tull) all agreed on Anse’s ruinous and lazy character – “I notice how it takes a lazy man, a man that hates moving, to get set on moving once he does get started off, the same as when he was set on staying still, like it ain’t the moving he hates so much as the starting and the stopping”

But now it was like he was looking at a total stranger. Joe didn’t really have any secrets but he felt like he didn’t really know his friends at all. These guys never caught up with Amanda to find out to find out what the
When he returned it seemed that he felt nothing; especially love. He told his mother that he couldn’t love at all, and God was apparently included in that statement. He probably could not pray to God after all he experienced, because he could not deal with the thought that the same God that let so many people die could love him. He couldn’t bring about the emotion or love for God, and hence wanted his mother to pray for him
But, his dad was getting beat up and him or his dad could not move. And when his dad disappears over night, he did not care about life anymore. He cared for his dad to a great extent. Also, when the dentist wanted his gold crown out of his mouth. He did not want to go so he made up an excuse not to get it removed.
Artie feels that he will never live up to his parent’s expectations of Richieu, because he was never in the War. An example of this is shown on the last page of the graphic novel, where Vladek turns over to go to sleep and calls Artie, Richieu. “I’m tired from talking, Richieu, and it’s enough stories for now…” The way Spiegleman has represented this in the text suggests to the reader that Vladek never fully loved Artie, as much as he loved his first son Richieu. This has obviously had major impacts on Arties life, and it has all primarily been caused by the Holocaust, because Vladek and Anja never fully healed after the Holocaust. Although ‘The Complete Maus’ is based around the interviews that Spiegleman has conducted with his
