JOSIAH BONT by Jeremy Anderson Josiah Bont, in the novel “Year of Wonders” is a complex character that has a huge negative influence on his family and the people that come in contact with him throughout his village. Josiah’s love and respect for his family was diminutive for the majority of his existence in the novel, and his death suits that of a bully, who is violet to his family both physically and psychologically. His daughter Anna Frith sums up Josiah quite nicely “My father loved a pot better then he loved his children”. Josiah’s feeling towards Anna was a sense of un-accomplishment, but then opportunities for young, illiterate women in those times were scarce. He would often physically abuse her, and put her down in front of others.
It is clear that she loves her son very much, but her well-meaning decisions can prove destructive. Amongst her worst decisions was to get married to Dwight. He is a seemingly nice man, but under the surface he is actually hostile and relentless, especially towards Jack. Dwight is unmistakably the antagonist of the memoir.

Kali Sarver Mrs. Hetrick Honors English 9 8 May 2014 A New Look On Death As many people already know, or will learn, death is thought of differently with each person.

Family Dynamics (Comparative Essay) Parents raise their children to either live vicariously through them or want to have them follow their own path in life. The stories "The Charmer" by Budge Wilson and "Brother Dear" by Bernice Friesen, show both ways of parenting which influences the children to go against them.

“Sadness of Desire” Richard Rodriguez: The Achievement of Desire As I read Richard Rodriguez’s The Achievement of Desire a feeling of sadness overwhelmed me. Typical of what Richard Hoggart terms “scholarship boys”, Rodriguez felt he could not admire his parents and still pursue his desire to be like his teachers; educated and successful. Rodriguez’s desire to be like his teachers caused him to abandon his family.
