In the poem “Those Winter Sundays,” by Robert Hayden, the visual imagery is seeing that the child might be thankful for everything their father does for them, but he/she does not show it as much as they should. In the poem there is proof when he says, “No one ever thanked him”(Line 5). This meant as if the child regretted it as they got older because they said, “What did I know, what did I know of love’s austere and lonely offices” (Line 13-14). They felt the parents had a duty to take care of their children no matter what and how ungrateful they seemed to be. In the beginning the poem is abruptly because the second word “too”, of the very first line of the poem assumes actions that has previously being going on before.
The speaker’s tone is regretful about the way he has treated his father. He notes that he would “indifferently” (Line 10) speak to his father, not acknowledging the work his father did for him. The sense of regret is shown in the repetition of “What did I know, what did I know” (line 13), emphasizing how the speaker has matured and can finally see the love within his father’s actions. The speaker’s use of “austere” (line 14) describes the type of love the speaker’s father demonstrated, a strict and more formal kind of love. “Those Winter Sundays” in its core is telling the story of familial love and how love does not always have to be verbalized, but can be shown in small acts of kindness.
Both the poem “Warren Pryor” by Alden Nowlan and the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr express a depressing tone. “Warren Pryor” is about a son who chooses a career that he dislikes in order to please his parents. “Harrison Bergeron” is about a dystopian society where excellence in any way is considered a disadvantage and inequality for others. In both texts, the protagonists all face the barrier of having their nature being stifled; however, the speaker in the poem chooses not to fight back for himself, while the majority in the short story is not even able to realize the barrier that they face. In the poem, the speaker Warren Pryor is under the pressure and high expectation of his parents that he has to choose to work
The narrator was cruel and made him touch it, with major accomplishments the final quote “Don’t leave me brother, don’t leave me.” (Hurst) [Doodle] Fully out of self pride, the narrator was fed up with his brother, he hated hauling him around all day and he truthfully in the narrator’s eyes “A burden in many ways” (Hurst) The day that the narrator started teaching his brother to walk, was a memorable one, he acted as if it was out of love, but it was truthfully out of self pride. It was grueling to force Doodle’s body to move correctly and not falter, The narrator acted as if it was to help his brother, and have a better outcome for the world, but he truthfully did it out of pride because he didn’t want the humiliation of an invalid brother. Doodle learned out to walk, but the narrator wouldn’t stop there. He forced his brother to do more grueling tasks. “Do you want to be different from everyone else when you start school?” (Hurst) [Narrator] “Does it make a different?” (Hurst) [Doodle] The narrator forced his brother into something that they couldn’t find a way out, “The net of expectations” (Hurst) The tasks were too hard for little Doodle, he became
Doing this really doesn’t help Paul because he is already terrified of his brother. In Tangerine, Paul says,” I’ve already been afraid of Erik, now I get to be afraid of Erik and Arthur” (Bloor 17). Paul’s statement affects his father’s choice. Sadly, Mr.Fisher still thinks his boys are very close, whereas in reality, Paul is scared. If Mr. Fisher had told the truth.
The narrator wished for a perfect brother that his would be able to do things with but when he wasn’t given that it caused him to do things that no brother should ever do or think about doing to his younger brother. Given all the evidence in the story there’s no doubt about it that Doodle’s death was because of his brother’s dislike for him, self-pride, and decisions when Doodle needed his brother most. The Narrator is responsible for his brother, Doodle's, death because he never really liked him to begin with. William Armstrong (Doodle) was born a disabled child when the narrator was 6 years old. The narrator was wishing for a brother that he would be able to do things with and have fun with, but when the narrator was
(Wiesel, 1258) that was elie trying to wake up his father s he is not thrown of the cart in the cold snow even though Elie must be so tired and took all his energy to do so. The way they felt about their father during their imprisonment. I woke from my apathy just at the moment when two men came up to my father”(1258) Elie didn’t hesitate at all to save his father's life from the Nazi soldiers. The analyzation between father son in this story is Elie and his father, and meir and his father have contrasting actions towards their fathers, such the way they cared for their fathers, and the way they felt about their father during their imprisonment is that they both cared for their fathers and one point but with the brutal and horrible things they saw felt dealt with everyday it broke meir and he died for that and lucky for elie he didn't lose it to that point but every relationship that near the holocaust got change even good or bad, if you see it or
The cliche describes a man, George, who attempts to bring reality to his dreams, but constantly debates whether or not he should leave his only source of companionship for his ambitions. Since the first introduction, George is witnessed to feel remorseful after howling at Lennie several times,clearly indicating that he cares about him. Secondly, George recognizes the consequences of traveling the land alone and indirectly thanks Lennie for their friendship. At last, even when George faced the ultimate sight of his friend, he hesitantly carried out the deed as a favor to end Lennie’s suffering. In the end, every novel, every work of literature has a basic cliche at the roots.
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.
He was resentful of the circumstances of his father’s death but it isn’t until Act 1, Scene 5 that his anger causes him to abandon who he truly is. He attempts to throw away his hate of deception in order to avenge his father’s death. His obligation bestowed upon him by his father’s ghost, which he does not resist, begins to overshadow his obligation of morality. Despite this, it still takes Hamlet a long time to take action which suggests that he struggles with which obligation he should fulfill. Hamlet is more than devastated about his father’s death.
