The Father could be mistaken as a drunk or abusive, Due to lines such as “ The Whiskey on your breath/ Could make a small boy dizzy.” (1-2) But is later affirmed to be the opposite with the young boy telling us “I hung on like death.” (3) Allowing us to know he doesn’t in fact want to let go. This is not in fear for his life which the word “death implies” but it is caused by the young boy wanting to continue and have fun with his father. As each stanza progresses we can further see the unconditional love between Father and Son. The young boy’s feelings and love for his father can be better illustrated by Theodore Roethke’s imagery, when we read more in depth; Roethke shows us a young boy having a joyous time wile trying to avoid being put to bed in My Papa’s Waltz. We can begin to better understand this relationship by digging deeper into the poem itself and examining each stanza, line and even word.
Scrooge noticed how generous Mr Fezziwig was to his employees unlike how Scrooge treats Bob Cratchit. Scrooge saw himself having a good time at Fezziwigs party dancing with his ex-fiancée Belle, Scrooge saw how in love he was with Belle before wealth and material gains became his priority before people. Charles Dickens is showing us how greed poisons a person’s
This story is told in retrospect, from the perspective of a man looking back on his childhood. Telling the story from this perspective makes the story even more humorous because even from a mature vantage point, the effects of the alcohol were still conveyed as accurately as when Larry was actually drunk. Being told from a mature vantage point, this story receives more credibility, and is more effective because it functions as a funny story from childhood. 8. I believe that Larry’s father did actually give up his liquor temporarily because he was very diligent in calculating the money he saved from not drinking.
The 'small boy'(Booth line 2) is talking directly to his father. This, in the positive readers eyes, evokes a feeling of intimacy between the two characters. In the mean time, the fathers breath making the boy dizzy gives ammo to the readers who believe the poem is about domestic abuse. For them, this line indicates that the father was not drinking socially, but drinking oppressively to the point of abusing the whiskey. The readers that see no abuse in the poem retaliate that the boy becoming dizzy is a realistic description of the two figures being close physically, and dancing around in circles as they attempt to
Before his mom and sisters died, he was given plenty of love. After they were gone, the only person left for him to love was his father. Chlomo Wiesel wasn’t the kind of person that shows love and affection to people though. It’s more towards the end of the book that Elie realizes how much he cares about his dad. At one point, when Chlomo was being beaten by Idek, he was ashamed of his father and he didn’t feel any grief for him.
But he soldiers on, keeping a brave face for his son, perhaps believing that even if death awaits him there is the slightest chance of delivering his son to safety. It's an overwhelmingly improbable chance, but it's one he has to take. Keeping his son alive and away from harm has become the sole purpose in his life, a mission he gladly undertakes out of love and devotion for his only child. The Road says a lot about what it means to be a parent, about how you will instinctively do absolutely anything to protect your children, even at the expense of your own well-being, but also that you have to make your children aware of the realities and dangers of the world so they can one day fend for themselves. Protecting your children won't do them any good at all if they never learn to live on their own.

Given Amir’s previous actions, it seems that this would be the day he remembers; the day he finally makes his father proud. The wonderful memory is marred when he does not defend Hassan. Instead of being the happiest day in his juvenile existence, it becomes the pivotal moment when his naïve reality begins to unravel. This part of the novel shows us that no matter what Amir wants to believe, Hassan is a more prevalent and joyful part of his life than his own
The father is a round character, he was complicated. He did not have the will power to kill his son. His belief was that his son was the only remaining sign of God’s existence and without his son the man really had nothing to live for. At the end when the father is dying, “he thought he could hold his son in his dead arms” (279) but he couldn’t because he did not have the will power to do so. Throughout the book the father does not have any will power to harm his son and he succeeds in making his son live.
