Left with only his father, Elie’s main goal becomes to avoid their separation. Elie is scared, and, as it would with any child, comfort seems to come in the form of his dad. Elie only feels safe with his father by his side. He does not wish for independence because in this situation, independence must surely mean death. Elie is prepared to do anything in order to stay with his father: “I took a half step forward.
You would think because he missed his son’s birth, he would try to make up for it and be a great father. But he was never around to raise his son and do fatherly things with William, like teach him valuable life lessons and such. As an adult, William tried to let his father know that their relationship wasn’t steady because William only knew so much about his father, and the rest were fabrications. All he wanted to know was the truth, and Edward kept telling tall tales. This only caused the deteriorating relationship between father and son to
Holden’s rejection of change is due for his fear of change, not be the same after growing up, accept something that he does not want to accept, be rejected by people, or even lose someone special to him. But everyone has to grow up and Holden does not grasp this concept. Not only his rejection of change affected his live, but he lied and wanted to be away from people. Instead of going to people to feel better, to ask for help, and to feel loved, Holden had lived among the consolation of his dead brother,
Look like all they want to do is knock you down.” Enoch tells Haze about his abusive father and this mean lady he lived with before he came there. It really makes me wonder if Enoch ever had anybody to talk to and that is why he is so strong on Haze; because Haze is listening. Enoch tells Haze that he has “wise blood”. “When he realized that today was the day he decided not to get up. He didn’t want to justify his daddy’s blood, he didn’t want to be always having to do something that something else wanted him to do, that he didn’t know what it was and that was always dangerous”(135).
Willy struggled with finding his identity because he was so caught up in his chase for his “American Dream”. He refused to confront any feelings of shame because he was convinced it would make him look bad. However, in order to find one’s self, one must confront these feelings-no matter how painful they may be. Ripkoff also states that “the denial of such feelings cripples Willy and the rest of the Loman family.” (1). Willy’s oldest son Biff finally confronted these feelings in the end of the play and discovered his true identity, thus avoiding the same fate as his father.
”I think I'm going to disappear for a while”, were the words that McCandless used as farewell to the two people that gave him life(21). Yes, it is one thing to think differently from your parents and to disagree with their lifetime and to despise their actions toward you and those around you; but it is a whole different thing to be cruel and show yourself ungrateful for the “ups” in the life parents have given their children. The reason signaled by him was the fact that he disapproved of his parents’ “moral shortcomings” after finding out Walt, his dad, conceived him while still married to his first wife and left his first family for his mother. Moreover, that Walt McCandless also conceived a half-brother of his after being married to Billie, his mom, with his ex-wife. This snapped something deep down in Chris that led him to alienate his parents from his life and block all feelings he had for them being his procreators and instead look up to the teachings
To Mr. Shears Christopher invaded his life with Judy, which Christopher does not understand I feel empathy for Christopher but as well I also feel that Christopher is a very selfish person. Christopher was very selfish when he ran away from his dad, It was also very selfish of him to show up at his mothers house and expect her to take care of him now. The one thing in my mind I found extremely selfish was Christopher expecting his mother to move back to Swindon so he could take a math course, yes A level maths was important to Christopher but London roger and Judy’s job was very important to Judy but Christopher didn’t see past his own needs. “I’m going to get an a grade, And that’s why I
Franzen also goes on to later say “I don’t like to remember how impatient I was for my father’s breathing to stop, how ready to be free of him I was.” (pg 98) I was surprised to find that he would say something like that about the man that was part of giving him life. I started to think more about a deeper reason for him to have said that and I started to think it was because he really loved his father. Franzen didn’t want to see his father suffer through this horrible disease anymore, so he wanted it to just be over for his father’s own sake. I personally would never want to see a loved one suffer the way Franzen had to watch his father. It would be a hard thing that I don’t know if I ever could go
As soon as the Billy’s sat down, they started to make fun of Azhar. Azhar feels very uncomfortable, because his mother now knew what’s going on with him outside their home. ‘’NOW she knew what went on and how it felt. How he wished he’d said nothing and protected her (…)’’ This quotation shows us a little boy who didn’t want his mother to know what’s going on. He wanted to protect his mother from the thing he had to endure on a daily basis.
