His message throughout the whole poem is despite his fathers violence and alcohol abuse he still loves his father no matter what. In the poem there is some hints of violence, but not much. For example, when he says “the whiskey on your breath could make a small boy dizzy” clearly shows that his father is drunk. When someone is drunk, it usually gives the feeling of aggressiveness and violence. He also shows violence when saying “we romped until the pans slid from the kitchen shelf.” Maybe the child thought they were playing, but as he was drunk he probably was stumbling around hitting things causing the pans to fall, plus he says how his mother was discontent with his father at this specific time.
In William Golding’s Lord of the Files, there are many violent events, which happen throughout the novel. First Piggy’s glasses are stolen from him; Jack says the conch does not work anywhere; and finally Roger and Maurice kick over the Littluns’ sandcastle. When people are left alone their natural instinct of human nature causes a descent into madness. When the boys are left alone their humanly instinct quickly causes corruption between them. Jack and the boys find an instant need to use Piggy’s specs and do not hesitate to do it by force.
In Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck uses protective, careful, and harsh to depict that the character of George is important to the story line. George is very protective over Lennie. One example is when George says, “Lennie!” ”Lennie, for God’ sakes don’t drink so much.” Lennie continued to snort into the pool. The small man leaned over and shook him by the shoulder. “Lennie.
A Gift of Laughter Have you ever gotten mad at someone for disrupting you, and then realized they were only trying to help?

Ultimately I can’t say there is one specific person who is responsible for why Antoine ends up on the beach. Rather though a combination of people in Antoine’s life including himself and also France’s values and expectation of their children. His teacher is the primary force for trying to instill the importance of being a good person for the fatherland. Throughout the film he lectures Antoine about how he disgraces France or how he will fail to be a part of France’s society. This puts a lot of pressure on Antoine as he starts to change into a better person because he knows his teacher has an extra eye on him and even if he messes up on more time he will not be forgiven.
Throughout the story George constantly reminds Lennie how much better his life would be if he didn’t have to take care of him. While George and Lennie are lying down talking George talks about Lennie being in “a lot of trouble” (Steinbeck 7). George is always reminding Lennie how much he doesn’t like him. He seems like he’s trying to be a father-like figure but doesn’t know how. George tells the boss that Lennie got kicked in the head by a horse as a little kid and that’s why he is slow, so Lennie asks him if it is true and George says that it would be a good thing and it would “save everybody a hell of a lot of trouble.” (Steinbeck 23).
“A guy goes mad if he got no one to talk to.” The two protagonists, George Milton and Lennie Smalls, travel together to find work; when they do, they have to leave because of an ‘incident’ caused by Lennie. George is the leader and the father figure whereas Lennie is the well-built and child-like character. The novel shows the adventurous journey these characters travel in attempting to find work and not be ‘run out’ and to achieve their dreams. Usually George is always looking out and looking after Lennie – “I got you to look after me, but you got me to look after you.” If Lennie gets into trouble, George knows what to do to get him out of it – “if you jus’ happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an’ hide in the brush.” Unfortunately for Lennie; his child-like nature gets him into enough trouble to end his journey. He is ‘blindly devoted’ to George, soft things, a farm house and rabbits.
Like Jack, Hamlet loved his father and then lost him, resulting in a new father figure to replace the old. This new father figure, Claudius, disrespects Hamlet’s father which ends up being disrespectful to Hamlet himself. By marrying Gertrude shortly after the King’s death, Hamlet thinks Claudius is a “Bloody, bawdy villain! Remorseless, treacherous, lecherous kindless villain!” (Lines 540-541) The exception of both Jack and Hamlet’s refusal to respect their parents is because they both
The novel begins with Lennie who has a mouse in his pocket; George then takes it out and throws it away, making Lennie get into a temper.

George knows he won’t leave him but likes to threaten him.
