Uncle Andy made Arnold feel abandoned and hurt when he stated “Not a tear in his eye”, this statement proves to show that his uncle did not care for him at the time and did not help comfort him. The community within this story also intertwines with this theme. It is shown when a member of the area, Sullivan, expresses his feeling through the following “He don’t give a hoot, is that how it goes?” Each word that comes from his mouth pierces Arnold’s heart and has him left in the dust. Finally the abandonment of his mother was what hurt him the most. People argue that the perspective that your family has on you, is what matters to a person the most.
Alluding back to this quote, Wharton exposes these feelings for what they really are when Ethan's wife, Zeena, leaves him home alone with her caretaker, and cousin, Mattie for a couple days. In spite of this, Gabriel rebelled in a slightly different way. To expand, Gabriel didn't really appreciate his wife, Gretta, and often thought of leaving her. Yet, he stayed; for if he left, Gabriel would face the ultimate punishment, social isolation. Therefore, he caused turbulence with himself, because he was going against his true feelings to satisfy his lust and desire for a companion.
He is very distant even from his family, his grandchildren don't like to visit him and they misbehave during the funeral. Walt also judges them without having into account that they are little kids and teenagers, he dislikes the way they dress and their attitudes. As for Walt's sons, my impression is that he feels like they are trying to send him to the old people's house to get rid of him and take over his belongings, the house and his beautiful car, the Gran Torino. Another issue that Walt has to face after the funeral is that Father Janovich is tries to talk with him in order to get him to confession, because he had promised Walt's wife he would do so after her passing away. This is very difficult to Walt because a younger man is talking him about life, being that he has had strong and near experiences with death, so Walt stereotypes him as a young virgin speaking things learned at school, but that the Father didn't even understand according to him.
Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports. One interpretation to explain his lack of conformity to the ideal model of manhood could be due to his mother as she feminizes him even though she's almost

How does Martin portray the character of Manon and her attitudes up until the time of her Mother’s death? In the opening pages, Manon repeatedly refers to her husband as “him”, which is shown in the 3rd person pronoun which gives the impression that he has no respect and she has no respect for him, therefore he has not been given a name. This shows that Manon has a negative attitude towards her husband as she believes he does not deserve a name as he is unworthy due to the treatment he has given Manon. As a result, this leads people to believe that there is no love between Manon and her husband because if he was given a name it would show a loving connection. Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband.
