Reb Saunders has declared since Danny’s youth that he would follow in his father’s footsteps to becoming a tzaddik for the Hasidic Jewish community. However, as Danny grows throughout the novel, he begins to gain his own perception on life, resulting in his decision of pursuing his own dream of becoming a psychologist. This prominent part of The Chosen can be compared to the song “Eye of the Beholder”, by Metallica, as the song essentially describes how life can be perceived differently by any individual. This relates to the conflict between Danny and Reb, as Reb initially only sees his perspective on Danny’s future career, which limits Danny’s freedom of being his own individual. Throughout the song, it states “independence is limited”, which relates to Danny before he was given the blessing to purse his own dream from his father.

During his adulthood, from his breakups to the death of his father, Gogol matures mentally.
In “An Indian Father’s Plea” by Robert G. Lake-Thom, Lake-Thom uses transitions to help connect his ideas and create a well written essay. In the twelfth paragraph the author discusses the knowledge that his son possessed before he began going to the school he is currently attending. Since Lake-Thom is listing the knowledge his son possessed before starting at that school he uses the transitional expression “and” frequently in this paragraph. Lake-Thom also repeatedly uses the transitional expression “but” when he says that while his son may not be able to do something that other non-Indian children his age can do such as writing their names he has knowledge of other things that those children don’t have.
