During the course of the novel of ‘Deadly Unna?’ the readers are exposed to the negativity between the father and his son. This affects Blacky in way that his self-esteem is almost non-existent, and the negativity is prominent throughout the novel. Examples of the neglect shown by his father are that of the time when Bob refers to Blacky as a ‘gutless wonder’, and the journey we take through the story of Blacky’s deteriorating respect for him. The ‘gutless wonder’ incident was a influential part of the novel, as Blacky realises that his Dad isn’t one to take advice of someone he feels is inferior than him, thus saying, ‘My own son, a gutless wonder. A gutless fucking wonder!’ When Blacky explains to his father about the storm, Bob insults him rather than swallow his pride and takes his son’s advice on board.

The reason that Elie finds the deterioration of father-son relationships so painful is that the maintenance of this relationship seems to be the last barrier between a world that is semi-normal and one that has completely been turned upside down. Elie must continue

Like so, poet ‘Peter Skrzynecki’ in “Immigrant Chronicle” visibly demonstrates his struggle to feel united with his own parents, it also demonstrates his struggle to feel united with the world that is different to his parent’s or ancestor’s. Like so, another text “Sweeney Todd” 2007 directed by Tim Burton focuses on the negative impact of forced imprisonment and reflects this negative impact as a result of Sweeney’s inability to generate a sense of “us” after he was freed from imprisonment.

Other characters also help build a picture of Birling in the opening section. Eric's defense of the workers brings about a vicious verbal attack from Birling which pours scorn on Eric's lack of business experience and reveals his bitter feeling towards "public-school-and-Varsity" education. Priestley suggests he resents the advantages enjoyed by his son's generation and this helps the audience understand why later Eric says that Mr Birling is "not the kind of father a chap would go to when hes in trouble". At this point, Priestley has provided a picture of a self-important man who places his faith in technology and industry, who believes he can enjoy the rewards granted by the community while declaring that community spirit is "nonsense" and that a man has to "mind his own business and look after himself and his own". Yet Eric, at this start of the Inspector's chain of events' has already challenged his father's views, and later Sheila will do the same by recognising a shared humanity with the

The war has its positives but there are a lot more negatives such as, the draft, people leaving their family, death, etc...
