In “A Boy Named Sue” the dad completely walks out on his son at the age of 3 said so in the lyrics by Johnny Cash. Unlike Sue, the other story only shares that the father ignored his son and never found time to spend with him. “But there were planes to catch and bills to pay he learned to walk while I was away,” this is part of the song “Cat’s in the Cradle” , and is a great example of the wrong doing of the father. Another contrast between the two would have to be resolving and not resolving the issues that occur. The father and son, in “Cat’s in the Cradle”, never resolve the conflict that arises between the two which makes both unhappy.

Additionally, Holden and Salinger both live or want to live a secluded lifestyle. For example, in the novel Holden regularly fantasizes about a solitary life and in this life he would be a self-sufficient deaf mute (Rollins 382).
Through diction and personification, the speaker gives plenty of reasons as to why he should’ve appreciated his father growing up. Unfortunately, the speaker states that “No one ever thanked him,” and the speaker’s use of the past tense implies that nobody ever will. Perhaps the father is now deceased or estranged from the son, but either way, this phrase is coated in remorse because it implies that the speaker wishes he had enough sense to thank him and prevent him from possibly feeling unappreciated. This remorse is especially felt because the line ends the first stanza, which first introduces the father’s sacrifice and hardworking nature. In addition, the speaker’s remorse is seen in the third stanza.
His idiosyncrasy remains loving and understanding, even when his younger son returned home after many of been away with not a penny to his name. The young son showed disobedience to all the goodness his father had offered to him. The young son showed traits such as selfishness as well as being ungrateful.

He was changed so greatly from previous event and could recognize that and no longer do the things he wished . Wiesel says, “I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep.
This is a pivotal scene where Huck ultimately decides that there is no reason Jim shouldn 't be free. I think that he was far enough into the trip with Jim where their bond had grown to be that of either brothers or father and son. This allowed him to think independently with his own memories and emotions, not society 's. He also realizes that his bond with the Widow is insignificant when compared to the love and protection that Jim has provided to Huck. This renouncement appalled me because she provided Huck with a home and education when both of Huck 's parents were absent.
During the final days of Eliezer’s father’s death, Elie’s father completely depends on Elie to bring him food, water, and keep him protected. When Eliezer discovers that his father has been taken away, he thinks to himself, “I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep. But I was out of tears. And deep inside me, if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!...” (Wiesel, 112) When Elie searches through his “feeble conscience”, or weak conscience, his mind is incapable of feeling anything towards his father. His mind is weak from the constant strain and stress of the Holocaust.
