资料 In both stories, a young boy who either narrates the story or offers his point of view through indirect discourse witnesses and becomes complicit in an extramarital relationship. In Diaz's story, Yunior, the narrator, sees his father cheating on his mother and senses that this familial transgression is potentially threatening to his family's happiness; he does not fully appreciate his father's motivations, and comprehends only partially how this adulterous affair might connect to his father's changing identity. In Vapnyar's story, Misha sees his grandfather, who seemed utterly unable to adjust to American life, develop a new self-identity when he embarks on a friendship with a Russian immigrant he meets in an English-language class.

Analysis of Junot Diaz’s Fiesta, 1980 In Junot Diaz’s “Fiesta, 1980”, Yunior’s relationship with his father is defined by the vomiting that occurs in his Volkswagen which reveals the toxicity of Dominican machismo. The Volkswagen is Papi’s car, a representation of how he shows off his masculinity to those around him. The fact that Yunior feels like throwing up whenever he is in the Volkswagen shows how he is disgusted with his father’s volatile attempts at proving his masculinity. Nonetheless, Yunior continues to make an effort to cure himself of his vomiting issues and validate his father’s masculinity in order to maintain a relationship with him. Although Yunior may not approve of his father’s abusive nature, he still accepts it because this kind of behavior is the norm for the families he sees around him in his environment.
George Senior had high expectations for his son, and he put him under a lot of pressure to do well. This became the root of George’s poor relationship with his father (Woog 14, 19-20). During George’s childhood, he was often bullied. He recalls, “I was very aware that growing up wasn’t pleasant, it was just… frightening” (qtd. in Woog 14-15).
Like Cain and Abel, Cal and Aron offer their presents to their father. Adam only accepts Aron’s gift of his education over Caleb’s gift of money. This upsets Caleb deeply. Aron believes his mother is dead, and buried in the East, peacefully lying in the ground. Caleb’s anger gets the best of him and he brings Aron to see their mother Kate, the owner of the whorehouse.
Myrtle Wilson is ashamed of her social position in life because she is poor. First off, when she is with Tom, (which is wrong in the first place) she is lifted of her under-class blemishes, even though Tom has abused her. When Tom and Nick go into town to the apartment party, Nick states, “Making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand”(37). It is never okay no matter what situation a person is in to hit a woman. Tom is so arrogant that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.
Chris was always critical of his parents and their lifestyle, but that criticism turned to outright anger when Chris learned that his father had lived a double life with another family for a time. Chris saw his father as a liar and a hypocrite and he was never able to forgive his father. A recurrent theme in Chris' journal was a search for "truth", and he linked that search to the lack of truth he perceived in his family life. After graduating from college Chris felt the need to flee from his family and their expectations in order to seek the truth that he felt he had never experienced. To say that I grew up in a broken home growing up would be a gross misstatement.
I make this conclusion from where it says in the story all of the things that Jake wanted to add to his car to make it look better and possibly even change his entire life (page 45). Reading on we see after the wreck when he lies to Mariana about his profession, insurance, and address (page 46-47). He is lying not only to Mariana but himself when he gets back into the car and it says that “He took a moment or two to feel both proud and sad about his performance.” (Page 47). I say this because he possibly wanted a relationship with Mariana but could never have one because of the lies he had just told her. Also with Mariana when she tells Jake to call her (page 47).

Morgan Helums Bain 1 Honors English 11 1 December 2011 Joe Christmas “Abuse of any kind in the earliest years of life is particularly traumatic and can manifest as unhealthy behavior later in life” (Williams). A prime factor in the type of person a child will grow up to be is the environment he or she is raised in. For example, Joe Christmas grew up to be a very abusive man and killed multiple people. Despite the many attempts people made to help Christmas, the memories of his childhood could never be erased. Joe Christmas experienced neglect and abuse as a child and struggled to have a relationship with others, which in turn motivated him to become the isolated and violent man that he was.
