I choose to critic the formalist approach. The one thing about the setting that stood out was that he was daydreaming about the past. In his case it happened to be when he was in the war and flashed back to reality when his wife started to yell at him. Thurber uses such great satire here. He brings great detail to how his wife is acting and how she should be acting when his wife is yelling at him for driving fifty-five when she likes him to go forty.
In other words, Rex cares about his kids and puts in effort to come up with these stories, just to make them happy. When parents truly love their children, they do not intentionally abuse them in any way. Only once throughout the entire memoir, had Rex abused his child and when he did, Jeannette “…expected him to turn and walk away…” (220). Jeannette expects her dad to simply walk away, implying that he has never whipped her before. Of Course the only reason that he did it was to discipline Jeannette, so he had never once took out his anger on his kids, even during his drunk rages; he cared about them
I believe John had a genuine concern and love toward his wife but not wise in his treatments of her mental health. He missed the mark in his Isolation treatments toward his wife mental condition. As the Author cites “John does not know how much I really suffer, he knows there is no reason to suffer, and that satisfies him”. Moreover, John tried very hard to make his wife comfortable at the house even having his sister help, although she didn’t like it. “There comes John's sister.
He knows he will have to kill Mr. and Mrs. Coggio also, although they are not who he is after, but he enjoys their perfectionism. He never had a mother and father that loved him, or cared for him like they care for their children. He enjoys knowing all of their secrets, it gives him a feeling of control. He knows he can accomplish the task of taking their life because he says “their father is old, and bowlegged.” Their father is not a threat to his young and strong body.
In this way, Walls goes from a starry-eyed child who blindly worships her father to an adult who sees the true nature of the people surrounding her. An example of this is when she admits to her father that he will never build the glass castle and that even if he did, she would not be around to live in it. In this way, Jeannette learns to take control of life and choose her own path. Walls’s ability to tell her own story is transcendental in the very sense that she breaks free from the preexisting narrative paths that most stories are told from and tells the truth of her life regardless of the criticism it may be met
He resisted to change and stated that the current software was working just fine even though he was also quite sure that the BOS software project was designed specifically for their industry and did bring benefits. Bamett had a tight relationship with Abu Dija since graduation and he even demanded Abu Dija and Luke William to replace Jackson. Also, Luke William shied away from confrontation because he wanted to be worldlywise and played safe. Luke William and Abu Dija demanded Jackson to get Barnett on board. Whereas, Barnett was a stubborn guy and he never attended to any demo meetings of the BSO software project and also refused to listen to any explanations.
In the novel George says ‘Lennie never done it in meanness. All the time he done bad things, but he never done one of em mean”’. This shows How George feels sympathy for Lennie as he always manages to get other people upset at him and always manages to get himself into trouble but Steinbeck is showing the reader though George that he never means to cause trouble and he often held back and get in trouble due to his simplicity and child like mind. Steinbeck uses characters around Lennie to make the reader feel sorry for Lennie. In the novel apart from George, no one else really cares for Lennie.
“Explosions” will often happen in families. It is up to the adults to “understand” and “learn” there is not perfect family. It is an idea, a model that you can achieve with “mutual needs” and destructive ways. There are descent people out there but you wouldn’t believe that by the way they act. The authors representative extended example “father daughter” he was effective with his dignosis because the “seven year old girl” was a “full fledged hypochondriac” until her father came to see the physician.
However, on page 2, Billy’s response to one of the Landlady’s unwholesome actions was “the old girl is slightly dotty”. Besides, on page 3, he reconsidered his previous thoughts shown by the dialogue “but she was also quite obviously a kind and generous soul”. This represents Billy as simple-minded, though Billy tried to look more mature than he actually was, wearing the suit he still didn’t pick up any signs the Landlady was showings and she used this to her own advantage. Dhal uses dialogue to portray how naïve Billy was and how silently cleaver the Landlady was. Dahl uses descriptive language to reconsider the reader’s
Aksionov doesn't consider his wife's dream and leaves for the fair. This analyzes that he was a strong, courageous man that stuck by his word and did what he thought was right. When his wife kept telling him not to go the carnival, she was very serious about the matter. Her dream had frightened and worried her that something bad was about to happen to her husband. However, every time she told Askionov not to go, he kept laughing and making jokes about it.
