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 poem ‘Nettles’ by Scannel explores the ways in which a parent is protective towards their child and doesn’t want to see them get hurt so they will do anything in their power to protect them, however they cannot always be protected and soon they will be hurt. The poem ‘Born yesterday’ by Amis explores the ways in which the speaker is wishing an unborn baby girl the best in life and how he doesn’t expect her to be perfect, and she ‘may be ordinary’. These two poems go well together because they are both based on a realistic view on life, they both show the way people will shield their loved ones from the unseen pain and unhappiness of the unknown future. The line “My son would often feel sharp wounds again” from ‘Nettles’ shows that no matter how much a parent tries to protect their child they will get hurt. This is also portrayed in ‘Born yesterday’ when it says “tightly-folded bud” this indicates that although the child may be young and unable to defend for herself her loved ones will try and protect her, however soon they won’t be there to protect her and she will be left to defend for herself.
The laziness of Unoka encouraged Okonkwo to rise above the live his father lived. Additionally, the concern of changing fellow townspeople belief that Onkonkwo would be equivalent to Unoka and constructing his own reputation were also a factor in his motives. The quotation of Okonkwo “Even as a little boy he had resented his father’s failure and weakness, and even now he still remembered how he had suffered when a playmate had told him that his father was an agbala.” (Achebe 13), shows the distinctive mind set of Okonkwo in comparison to Unoka. The relationship between Okonkwo and his family also inspire Okonkwo’s static character decisions. With his strong attitude he has no patience for his wife that is why she ends up getting beat many times through the novel.
During this paper, I will also discuss how I fit into these generalizations. According to the textbook, while self-disclosure is important for building rapport with other people, it is also an important way in which you learn more about yourself. I think that self-disclosure is very important in any relationship because it makes my partner feel more confident that I will tell the truth without holding anything back. Even if you tell part of the truth, it is still a lie. I can personally relate to this because my husband would only tell me certain things, but the facts would surface later.
This quote means that in life, the choices we make create the mold for our lives. Sometimes the choices we make can improve our life to create a positive mold but the risks we take to get there are our own responsibilities. In the novel by Ernest Hemingway The Old Man and the Sea, the main character, Santiago, has a journey out at sea filled with an intense experience that ends his 84-day bad luck streak. This journey reveals a lot about Santiago and his traits that helped him continue this journey.

It’s as if he is saying that he was useless and always relied on his dad, whereas his father was doing a great deal of work while maintaining his role of a father. For example, “I stumbled in his hobnailed wake…sometimes he rode me on his back, dipping and rising to his plod.” The word ‘plod’ makes it seem as if the father is tired, and even though he may be struggling, he still carries his son on his shoulders, regardless of how he himself feels. The poet shows us that the narrator strives to be exactly like his father when he’s older. This is made obvious because he says that he wanted to ‘grow up and plough’, just like his father did. After following his dad around all the time, and seeing what he does, he decides that he wants to be like him when he’s older as it has
Kipling knew that instilling these virtues might make his readers self-righteous so he warns them against the same towards the end of the stanza. When we move to the second stanza, If poem analysis engulfs within its scope the correct way to pursue one’s goals in life. Kipling asks his readers to dream and think profusely but also advises them to prevent the same dreams and thoughts from controlling their every waking moment and upon fulfillment on those very dreams he asks his readers to master modesty such that they do not turn into self proclaimed Samaritans. He says to his readers that they must not let defeat affect them and advises them to treat every defeat which they might face as a chance which life them gave them to learn
