Martin never got the affection from his father as a young child and that caused him to remember all the bad things. This was after he heard all the good things about his father. When his friend was going through all the loss, he gave Martin some good advice, “that if I had anything to work out with my parents, I should do it now, because one day that opportunity would be over.” So Martin starts getting close with his parents and once his father was on his death bed, he finally said those three magic words “I Love You.” He was able to get closure; Martin knew his father loved him, his family and that his father was proud of him. Use Concrete Language to Create Clear Visual Images of the Setting and Characters: Form Martin’s description of memories he had of his father, I could picture each event as I read them. I could see his father handing Martin the keys to the 1957 Chevy or his father being at the tumbling contest, and I would try to picture their reactions of the situation.
The beginning of the key scene is important because, Hamlet has been summoned by his mother, who is furious with him for events surrounding the play-within-the-play, in which it has been suggested clearly that Hamlet’s father has been murdered by his brother. Hamlet, however, confronts his mother, still unhappy that she is married to his uncle, Claudius. Polonius has been sent to spy on Hamlet on behalf of Claudius.

Overtime, Royal has an epiphany that these last days living with his family were truly the most important and best days of his

Hamlet expresses his bitter feelings against the disloyalty of his own mother in particular and womanhood in general. he expresses his sourness against the treachery of his uncle.
For example, Okonkwo a once respected and influential man ended up hanging himself. This is ironic due to the fact that in the beginning of the novel Okonkwo said, “Since I survived that year, I shall survive anything.” (talking about the year of bad crops). Obviously he was wrong about that considering he ended his own life at the end of the novel showing that in fact he could not survive anything, including the falling of the Ibo clan and his realization of being alone in his wish for war with the white missionaries and government. Likewise, Okonkwo never wanting to replicate his father, which he spent his whole life trying to prove, ended up being buried in the Evil Forest, the exact place his father was sent when he died. When things became rough for Okonkwo he decided to give up on life, which is something his father may have done.
