We will talk about dealing with aging and dying in Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie and William Shakespeare’s “The Seven Ages of Man”.

Although Marie has a serious cold, she also uses her weak voice to protest being checked by Uncle Hayden alone. From these few words, readers can feel the intense fear and panic from Marie and know that Uncle Hayden is an indecent rapist. Besides, by the end of Chapter 1, I really confuse about the Mr. Hayden`s attitude. After David`s mother tells this father all the things, he waits for his father to explode, but, instead, his father said as quietly as before: “Why are you telling me this?” (36:4). Although I know that Dr. Hayden is David`s father`s brother, I consider that in front of justice and brother`s relationship, I will prefer to choose justice.

Eveline’s father plays a big part in the story, since it seems like he, and the promise Eveline made to her mother, are the main factors behind Eveline’s thoughts and decisions. The story starts very slow and sad with the author using words like, “invade”, and “dusty”. Once this sad mood is set in the first paragraph, Eveline then begins to think back to her childhood. Through this reminiscing, we learn that her mother is dead, and her father is abusive (through her choice of the word “hunt” when she mentions how he would get them in from playing). Eveline, however, has a chance to escape her current life by leaving with, and marrying a sailor she has met and been secretly dating.
How does Hill convey relationships in the novel King of the Castle? Hill is describing Kingshaw’s relationship with his mother as not a good one. We see this as Kingshaw is thinking back to his past experiences with his mother, “He wished she were dead instead of his father”. Here Hill is trying to portray that Kingshaw’s mother is an extremely unlikable person and a terrible parent. Here, Kingshaw’s mother is trying to treat both the boys with equal respect.“I shall not make a favourite of my own child”, which is conveyed to the reader constantly as throughout the novel as her respect for her own child declines as her feelings for Mr Hooper increases .

After all, I had killed his beloved wife, his beautiful princess, hadn’t I?” This example shows that even as a young child Amir felt guilt and allowed the past to significantly affect his life. Amir felt the reason Baba was always distant and seemed cut off, was because he was torn inside after the death of his beloved wife, which Amir had killed at delivery.
This particular poem was very confusing as she often changes how she feels about the issue at hand; she goes from worshipping her father like a god of some kind to hating him and wishing revenge on him and then to saying how he is ideal model figure. She finds this figure in her husband and also labels him a vampire. It was this imagery that shows how Plath was always under the restrictive constrictions of the male figures in her life. The first stanza of the poem shows this confinement through the image of how she was trapped in her father’s shoe in which she lived like a foot and because of this she was unable to complete normal tasks that normal people take for granted such as sneeze of breathe. It was this restriction that was always evident when there was a male figure within her life.
