In Louise Glück’s poem “Terminal Resemblance,” the speaker tells about her relationship, or lack thereof, with her father. The speaker explains a relationship with their father, saying it is not existent. They have a conversation that is supposed to be meaningful, considering he is dying, but it seems to have no meaning to her at all. The speaker wishes her father the best and leaves him and her mother at the door, with the same relationship she had with him before. The poem seems to be about how the speaker does not have a relationship with her father and the news she receives of him dying soon has made her realize that she wants to pursue one with him and start fresh.

The narrator is angry at herself for not being able to forget him and letting him get to her. Dickinson may have used this poem to express her feelings about an unrequited love interest and the pain that comes with it.

It is important because it is the basis for making a good decision, building a marriage, and establishing a religious faith. In Shakespeare 's Othello, Othello 's marriage begins to deteriorate due to the lack of trust in his bond with his wife. They had recently gotten married and required the years it takes in order for a couple’s trust to be solidified. Due to this rift, Iago was able to wedge his lies into their marriage causing the rift to widen. Some would argue that love conquers all and that the lack of trust should not dissolve a marriage.
