He did not want them themselves really.” (P.3, line 34-36). The lost generation refers to the generation of young men who served in the first world war and that can be related to Krebs because he did serve in the war. Wandering without direction or goal is something that happens a lot to the lost generation and this most definitely is also an issue Krebs is dealing with himself. The feeling of being lost and not a part of society also stems from the military teaching Krebs that he should not love anyone not even his mother. “ 'Yes, Don 't you love your mother, dear boy? '
One of the main examples of denial is through Brick who denies his sexuality for Maggie, Big Daddy, and himself. He is trying to please everyone in the family through ignoring how he feels, which leads him to drinking his sorrows through liquor. It is not the fact that he does not love Maggie it is that he can not love Maggie due to loss of attraction. He is denying himself for Big Daddy only to not disappoint him because he is the son. He loves Big Daddy and to tell him the news while he is on his death time would leave Brick to the thought of Big Daddy dying in disappointment through his son.
The tension within their family pushes them more toward depression, making Loman uses death as a release, and Ilyich feels even more painful about his illness. However, the caring and support from the Loman family causes the essential difference between he and Ilyich, death for Loman is nothing to afraid of because part of the reasons he committed suicide is that he believes that it can bring freedom to not only him, but also his family. However, Ivan Ilyich spends a long time trying to accept his family and the misfortune he has encountered, and his death is not as meaningful as it is supposed to be because his family shows him little care about him even after he passed away. Even though the realities Ilyich and Loman has experienced are similar, the love and support from family eventually makes their death have different meaning. While Loman’s suicide is a release for both his family and him, Ilyich’s death is nothing special but the end of his own
Chris uses pathos by providing examples of Chris’ troubled family life. For example, after finding out about his father’s affair, Chris felt as if he could only trust Carine. This is evident as Chris sent her a letter saying, “Anyway, I like to talk to you about this because you are the only person in the world who could possibly understand what I am saying” (Krakauer 129). This appeals to our emotions as Krakauer makes us empathize with Chris: he feels as if no one understands him, so he thus ignores his family. Chris was not only socially isolated, but he was also physically isolated from everyone he loved.

Steinbeck did not portray them as purely bad characters, both Charles and Caleb at some points in the story come as very sympathetic to the readers, they show their love for family, not only for their father but also for their brother, whom they eventually hurt. They both regret it, although as it is shown, Caleb regrets his actions very much, he goes to his father Adam and he asks for his forgiveness. This is never done by Charles, although it is clear that he has many regrets over his actions towards Adam and their father Cyrus. Steinbeck implicitly says that they did their crimes because they were rejected by their fathers and their love, which is needed by everyone, especially children. Caleb, as the representative of Cain is perhaps the most sympathetic character in the

Calbert ends her poem with listing the romances with her husband and vows, “knowing nothing other than [their] love” because that is all that matters to her
