Carl is not fond of auntie Beryl because she is cold, rude and abrupt to almost everybody. Carl isn’t the most confident and mature boy, he is very awkward and shy. Early in the novel Carl is not confident, he is very shy and weak. Carl is like this because he didn’t know who his father was, his mother never pays any attention to him, and he never knows where she is which makes him worry a lot. Carl is often shifted to his Auntie Beryl’s house which she doesn’t treat him with respect or kindness.
The role of the female was a domesticated one that was limited to the home and included cooking, cleaning and taking care of any children. Ross makes clear that these gender roles are a source of great conflict for both Ellen and Paul. Ellen’s gender role of being a farmer’s wife is a causal factor to the tragic consequences that take place at the end of the story. The life of a farmer’s wife is a lonely and secluded one. Ellen does not get to enjoy the company of another and is often left alone; not even the company of her husband because he is occupied outside.
The main family in the story (the Logans) live on a farm and grow some of their own food but they still don’t have enough money and aren’t allowed to shop at white owners shop. The themes of the story are integrity, passive resistance, bravery, civil disobedience, internal belief system and leadership. I think it’s a good idea that the same person is telling the story because you can see how a young child reacts to being discriminated against, but the disadvantage is that you can’t hear the other side of the story. When the author describes something, she creates a vivid picture in your head for example, ‘Spring. It seeped unseen into the waiting red earth in early March, softening the hard ground for the coming
The poverty was a result of her father’s lack of income. Her father, Bronson Alcott was a transcendentalist who was sure that his utopian community, Fruitlands would succeed. Like many of her fathers failed projects, Fruitlands failed as well. After Louisa’s fathers constant failures, she realized that her father would not be capable to support her and her family. Due to her fathers idealistic ways, she grew up at a young age, and took on jobs as a servant, educator, and a seamstress.

Even though Dave does earn money from plowing fields he never sees any of it because his parents demand that the money is given to them. This starts to show how Dave’s parents deprive him of love and nurturing and why he needs to break away from his current life to grow into an adult. His parents not only demand all of his wages but also not once do they comfort Dave in any way or tell him that they love him. On the contrary, there is textual detail that shows that Dave has been physically abused by his father and is afraid of it happening again. His father screams, “Yuh wan me t take a tree n beat yuh till yuh talk!” (172).
He justifiably thinks of his father as an effeminate, worthless, lazy man. Despite his family nearly starving and amassing a large sum of debts, His father Unoka could not bring himself to do any work, and rather borrowed money to go out partying and playing music. Later in the story, when consulting Agbala about why his crops always fail, Agbala’s priestess, Chika, told Unoka, “You stay at home and offer sacrifices to a reluctant soil. Go home and work like a man”. (Page #14) This helps establish the fact that Unoka’s problems are most
The neighbor who has the pine trees believes that the wall provides a sense of privacy and security to him. Even though he believes that two people can be neighbors and friends, he still feels some form of barrier is needed to separate them and “wall in” the space that is personal and the space that is private of the individual. His repeated line throughout the poem “good fences make good neighbors” (line 27) is evidence of the feelings he has towards his neighbor and the fence that divides the two properties. Another poetic technique Robert Frost uses in “Mending Wall” is imagery. This is evident in the first eleven lines of the poem describing the poor conditions of the wall.
They may not do it on purpose but whether they realize it or not, it can destroy their family. Fathers should not make their job too much of a priority because it upsets and affects the female parent, a father’s presence helps children’s development, and it can be bad for the fathers health. The biggest problem mothers have with overworked fathers is the lack of attention showed to the child by the father. “We have a one year old who misses his daddy as much as I do.” (healthboards.com). This was written by a female parent on healthboards website.
. Charles did not find this funny at all, because he knew if he did the same thing, his mother probably would punish him. In this story Charles have a brother call GL, a brother who always get the attention of his mother the attention that Charles never had. In this story the hero’s journey is not finished, because Charles refuse to return, he refuse to make everything like it was before he left home, even if his mother try to make him understand, “you’re about thirty years too late, Mama” after this words Charles go to his bedroom, but this time Charles was different, now he was self confident and secure about himself, he was relief of all his hiding feelings, now Charles was a different person. Not tell to the people we love the things that we have inside can in the long
