You know how I get when I worry,” as if to make her understand his actions through a simple guilt of him worrying (59, Hemingway). He gives no comfort to Jig, no actions are done to help her through what she’s going through. Hemingway writes a great story in dialog, leaving it up to the reader to make inferences based on the facts given so that they can figure out the story and the characters. The reader infers that Jig and the American’s relationship has come to an end and that Jig and the American don’t want the same things in life. The reader also infers that Jig may at first appear helpless but later she reveals that she’s ready to make her own decision.
In 1943 his uncle got injured by a mortar-bomb splinter in his left tibia which caused a horrible leg infection. The doctors at the time were confused on what type of disease he had. The story goes that a doctor would diagnose Chris’ uncle with one disease and then a symptom would arise that would defeat that diagnosis. In more recent years doctors determined that his uncle’s infection was one of two types of malaria found in his bloodstream; P. vivax and P. malariae. What most interested Christopher was that his uncle had a recurrence of malaria in January 1945 and another three, severe flare ups that started in 1987 and ended in June 1993.
Cartridges, bulged forward under the capes so that men , passing on the road, marched as though they were six months gone with child.” Repetition is used to repeat soldiers, motor tractors, and guns, the importance of repetition was to tell the reader that there is a war going on.

“We learn of another pair of brothers” (Goldman pg232) the uncle being like Sonny and their father being like Sonny’s bother the narrator. This is important because it reflects that people are different and do not react the same way to life even when brought up the same way. Sonny’s uncle much like Sonny clung to music and culture. The narrator may be linking their uncle’s accidental death to his life style when it could not be related in any way. While living with Sonny’s brother’s family Sonny’s brother doesn’t understand Sonny’s drug use or his musical escapes while playing nightclubs friends homes or within the walls of his home.
For example “ I said “I didn’t know I was going to get in into trouble, I liked wellington and I went ot say hello to him, but I didn’t know someone had killed him” father said “just try and keep your nose out of other people’s business” I thought for a little and I said” I am going to find out who killed Wellington”” The simple fact that Christopher does not listen to his father is challenging to Ed because Christopher’s fails to understand the upset and anguish he could case the people he might ask as well this is challenge because of Ed’s frustration he fails to explain to Christopher correctly why he should not investigate . Although this is not an essay critiquing Ed`s parenting, much of Christopher’s challenges of growing up attribute to this thus contributing to Christopher’s character.

Asef Rahman English 10H 10/15/2012 Ethan Frome: a lonely man indeed The novel, Ethan Frome, by Edith Wharton, is a story about Ethan, a man torn between the moral obligations to his wife, Zeena, and his need for a person to love. The author’s use of foreshadowing, metaphors, imagery and motifs vividly convey the overall message that man cannot simply live alone and needs somebody in his life. He has Zeena but he does not converse with her at all. The fact that Starkfield was a depressing place to live did not help his life either. Although Ethan’s overall nature was damaged by the smash up, his time spent in Starkfield had caused his overall melancholy demeanor and left him feeling isolated.
While none of them mention the story Position/ to each other, it is clear to the narrator they are all thinking about it, thinking about how even its quote set mention may signal the death of their father. One brother, who “came in for Montreal [and] was not up aware how serious the illness is” (42), jokingly comments that “he even avoided the Greyhound bus Quote and station in Montreal, just to be safe” (42). As this brother breaks the silence about the omen, it becomes analysis clear to the narrator that while they can pretend to forget the stories of the past, or even joke or make light of them as the brother does, they “cannot not know what [they] do know” (43). In other words, while they can make light of the story, they cannot pretend not to understand its significance; they cannot deny that they are all waiting for that “grey dog of death.” In this sense, the narrator finds solace in the fact that at least they are all thinking it together. This is where Macleod finds value in myths: even though they can signal the horrors of the past, they provide a touchstone for family bonds, which are especially needed when people experience the horrors of the present.
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
Even more impactful to Paul’s experience, perhaps in a negative way, are Paul’s journeys home during the war. Throughout the novel Paul’s longing to return home dominates much of the novel’s narration. Paul consistently yearns for the years and experiences of adolescence that precede his experiences in the war, but when he encounters them both on leave and as a result of his injury, he rejects them. He quickly recognizes that “the world of our parents [is] a thing incomprehensible to us” (122). Home for Paul, and his romantic notions of it, is destroyed when he recognizes his own incompatibility with society due to his experiences in war.
