The pain the father must have been in trying to fight for his food and then getting it taken from him and having to feel hunger and sick. An image of sadness came to me because the father couldn’t do anything for himself. He was to weak to even try to fight them. The father imagining his old life back. Were he did not have to fight for his food he had the food he wanted, whenever he wanted.
He felt abandoned because he also knew himself that he was only taken in by family for his work ethics but not for the caring and love of a child. The lack of love that he received at a young age for him influenced his decision of running away and living out into the dessert at the age of fourteen. This situation of having no one to depend on or depending on him has given him freedom and independence but has also betrayed his caring and loves towards others. Nat Swanson is ushered by a stray dog through his lonely journey. The impact of the dog accompanying him shows the lack of communication that Nat Swanson has.
The second is that people use metaphors. The word metaphor means carrying something from one place to another, I think it should be called a lie because a pig is not like a day and people do not have skeletons in their closets.``(14,15) Christopher needs logic in his life for things to make sense or else he can find himself getting sick or groaning loudly in pain. Although some cases of logic don`t make sense to the others around them he believes they make sense like when he says three red cars in a row means a good day and three yellow make a bad day he is told by his principal that this is not very logical and he said it makes sense to him. This is also shown when he says he won’t eat his food if it touches different items of food on his plate, but he will if it touches while being prepared. Another form of logic in his life is his family.
The problem with Bone is that he is scared of his stepdad. Bone’s stepdad threatens him by saying some nasty words to him like, as he says “all the time he said he’d cut off my d*** if I told” (pg. 196). I think what makes bone leaves his family is that he doesn’t want anyone to know about the times when his stepdad abuses him. He is afraid of what the society would think of him just like when he says “no one’d believe me” (page 296).
Those who are not given a proper burial will rot where they are left and be eaten by dogs in disgrace. Although Antigone was right for wanting Polyneices to have a proper burial because he was family, Creon was trying to take that right way from her as one of the few things women were allowed to do was mourn the dead. Creon abused the power he had and in the end, he only hurt himself. Creon’s order offended some people which made many citizens think of him as a power hungry tyrant. Creon sternly states “Polyneices,” he says, “is to have no burial: no man is to touch him or say the least prayer for him; he shall lie on the plain, unburied; and the birds and the scavenging dogs can do with him whatever they like” (1329).
Rip also missed out on America’s transition from colony to nation, so that when he enters the village and yells “I am a poor quiet man, a native of the place, and a loyal subject of the King, God bless him!” (2317). With that comment the villagers think of him as a spy and want to kick him out of the village or kill him. When Rip finds out his dog is gone he is saddened but felt an ease

ENG 102 24 April 2013 De Willy Loman's misconception of the American dream becomes an obsession that eventually ruins his life and effects his families in "Death of a Saleman". Willy Loman believed and taught his children, like much of society today, that looks and likeability will take one to the 'top' and hardwork and perservance seem to be a little less important. This way of thinking gives Mr. Loman nothing near success and money as he so badly desired along with two unsuccessful sons. It seemed like a 'dog eat dog' world in "Death of a Saleman" much like it is in reality world today. And while everyone lives to chase their dreams, only few actually make it there.
It has lent us the indifference of wild creatures.” (274) Paul abhors the fact that he and his fellow comrades have to switch of their compassion ,and behave like animals in order to cope with the horrors of the war and because they were not passionate at all in the war and are only motivated by food and friends they only focus on the negatives of the war and fail to search for a silver lining. Patriotism should not mean that one should get blinded by the love one has for his/her country and accept everything it does. After coming across captured Russian prisoners Paul in particular starts to question the war and its cause as he notices the similarities between himself and the prisoners. He came to realize that these people who struggled and were in pain just like him have become his enemies just because of a decision made by men with power who have never seen the front. “Their life is obscure and guiltless...A word of command has made this silent figures our enemies; a word of command might transform them into our friends...with their childlike faces and apostle beards...And yet we would shoot at them again and they at us if
