These short phrases quicken the pace making his words increasingly dramatic and emotional. A father is a figure to look up to, but Keller has made Chris so ashamed and disgusted, he is unable to even face his own father. When Chris reads Larry’s letter, it is also evident that Larry turned himself in because he couldn’t live with the shame of being part of the Keller family: ‘I don’t know how to tell you what I feel… I can’t face anybody…’ (The ellipsis’ add drama and emotion to his words.) In effect, Larry’s suicide is the reason for Keller’s suicide. Throughout the play, Kate is incredibly loyal to Keller, and even when she finds out the truth about Larry, she doesn’t get angry with him, and she stands up for Keller when Chris talks badly of him.

Major Comp#1 Within my paper, I will discuss the adversities faced by the character Doodle as a direct result of his older brother. James Hurst, the narrator of “The Scarlet Ibis,” as he is often pushed beyond his limits and the reoccurring themes in which James Hurst exhibits this. Doodle was born a sick child and wasn’t thought to have been able to do normal things like the other children. The Narrator wanted to teach Doodle certain things such as walking, running, and rowing which the family doctor said he couldn’t do but it is the Narrator that exhibits traits towards his brother, which ultimately leads to his demise. He is cruel, impatient, and shows too much pride; in a negative way, because he so desperately wants Doodle to be normal.

In the compelling movie of “What’s eating Gilbert Grape” directed by Lasse Hallström, Gilbert Grape is introduced as an attentive, caring brother in particular to Arnie, who has a disability and needs extra care and attention. This is especially because their father is no longer around after hanging himself in the basement and Mama is to big to even take care of herself.
