represent? In Bel Kaufman’s Sunday in the Park, the quiet park surrounded by busy New York City represents the intent on why the characters chose to go to the park. Morton, being a university professor, an occupation that would keep him constantly surrounded by people, would prefer to simply escape the busyness of New York City by spending a day at the park with his family. The antagonist of the story, Joe’s father, displays a controlling and selfish character which is seen when he says, “Throw all you want. This here is a public sandbox.” (37).
During their childhood, Vonnegut states that there was never any talk of love, just a playful and comfortable warmth between the two. Ironically, when the time comes when Catherine is getting married, is the time where both Newt and Catherine decide to express their love for each other.

Both texts explore the themes of parental hesitation and worries as well as children’s wish of pursuing their own life, though they differ in the point of view of parents and children when separation occurs. Parental hesitation and worries of letting children go is a natural part of separation. Though the process is not always easy and may include some conflicts, parents usually have the best intensions in mind. In A Private Talk with Holly the father finds it difficult to let go and imagine his life without his daughter Holly, “… Turn a back on home and walks out into the grown-up world forever.” The father conveys the separation feeling in the following words: turn a back, walks out and forever. Similarly, in the poem Wild Boy of the Road the parental hesitation is visible, “His mother is worrying about him… His mother is wishing her boy would come home.” The usage of the words worrying, boy and come home demonstrate the same feeling as in the story.
Students followed the carefree lives of Mother, Father, Dick, Jane, little sister Sally, and Spot. The characters’ environment represented the white, middle-class American ideal: a home and neighbourhood that was clean, safe, and friendly, where no one ever scraped a knee, got into a fight, or was punished for misbehaving. Father would come home after work and eat a dinner made by Mother, and the family lived securely behind their white picket fence. For many children of the Depression and World War II era, the “Dick and Jane” series did not speak to their experience of poverty and suffering. Many grew to resent the artificial illustration of American life that the books offered.
This goes to show that the salesman thinks that the female gender is not as great as the opposite gender, they are not valued the same as of what the male gender is. The next time the narrator observes this theory is when she is helping her father around the farm and her mother arrives and makes a statement that degrades the female gender. Her mother firmly states, “Wait till Laird gets a little bigger, then you’ll have a real help” (50). This goes to show that the narrator’s mother does not think that she is a real help not because she doesn’t help but because of the assumption that she’s know help due to her gender. Although the narrator is belittled due she feels the need to help out her father and represent herself as the father’s son.
