He never really thought of these houses as his home but rather somewhere he lived for a short time. As a child, he only lived with his family for about a quarter of his life, and even that is considered minuscule due to his lack of memory retention at such a young age. Therefore, Garnet doesn’t know what a home can be.

When he speaks of the tapes his wife and the blind man send back and forth, he refers to them as, “harmless chit chat.” He does not see the point in the conversations they have, or why they mean so much to his wife. Later, when the narrator is complaining to his wife about not having a blind

Now that I’ve read “Between the World and Me” I 've come to appreciate the way Coates thinks. I for one never read one of his books, but from this book I want to read more of his works. He was inspired to write this book by James Baldwin, who wrote "The Fire Next Time". “Between the World and Me” was written to Coates’s son while “The Fire Next Time” was for Baldwin’s nephew.

“Well, my daddy left home when I was three and he didn't leave much to ma and me”. This tragic incident occurs in the song “A Boy Named Sue” sand by Johnny Cash and similar events happen to a young boy in the song “Cat’s in the Cradle”. The literary songs “Cat’s in the Cradle” and “A Boy Named Sue” are closely related in my opinion. Both boys had the absence of their fathers in their life, but each had a different way to deal with the situation. “Cat’s in the Cradle” and “A Boy Named Sue” have several similarities pertaining to their fathers and individual lives.
His main purpose for writing this book was most likely his involvement in WWII as B-25 bombardier. He needed to explain the insanity of countries that start wars and the even more insane soldiers who fight them. Heller focuses mostly on the bombardiers as that was what he was himself. These plane-flying and bomb-dropping characters don’t change much throughout the book, only more is revealed about how absolutely mental all of them are. Some of this insanity includes a guy who buys eggs for seven cents, sells them for 5 cents, and makes a profit or a guy who is prosecuted for stealing a tomato by the guy that gave him the tomato.

Tony Hoagland was born in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in 1953. Tony, his sister, and his twin brother, who died in high school on a drug overdose, also grew up on several army bases in Hawaii, Alabama, Ethiopia, and Texas. The different places and lifestyles he observed gave him a cultural perspective that reflects in his poetry. He found poetry as a young and troubled adolescent because it was deeply mysterious and puzzling, which he found pleasing because, to him, it seemed like trying to solve the problems of human nature and staying alive, which related to him at the time. As his adolescent problems faded, he could not keep a relationship, an education, or a job, so he dove further into the poetic world because it was the only thing to stay constant in his life.

When reading the poem, “The Gift,” by Li-Young Lee, it can be interpreted many different ways. Upon initial reading, I took the poem very literal, but then I thought deeper and dug beneath the surface to realize the true meaning as to what Li-Young Lee was trying to say. As the author is removing a splinter from his wife 's hand, he has a flashback from the time when he was seven and his father removes a metal splinter from his palm. Although he was probably terrified at first, his father distracted him by reciting a tale. Lee mentions in the poem that he does not remember what the tale was about, but only that his father 's voice was “a well of dark water” and his hands were “two measures of tenderness.”
