By the end of this essay I will demonstrate that even the narrator becomes a dual image of himself, culminating with the loss of the narrative’s identity, which also subdues itself to the laws of duplicity.

Children are taught by their parents how to behave. Child poem author Shel Silverstein writes about children in several books and poems. In each poem she focuses on a different child setting and conflict.
