In Hayden 's poem, "Those Winter Sundays," the speaker is haunted by guilt for all the years he never thanked his father. The picture of the speaker 's father up every morning in the "blueblack cold" (869) on his only day off sends a powerful message. Everything the father did was done to make his son 's life a little bit easier. It is sad that "no one ever thanked him" and his son "spoke indifferently to him" (870), and even with the fathers best efforts, his home was still consumed with "chronic angers" (870). No matter how much the father did, the son never noticed his efforts.

By holding onto this symbol, the father binds himself to his childhood dilemma. The narrator readies himself to convince his father of what he has been doing to his family. The narrator then claims that keeping a deceased person’s possession is unwise.
According to the culture and religion of the people, the existence of everything can be classified as either good or bad. There are the holy people who are supernatural, and the people that reside on the earth’s surface are two different entities. The holy people through circumstances made their entry into the world and thereby came the first man and woman and they are the first ancestors of all men on earth. Thy provided the earth with all that is needed for survival and then moved to exist in a different realm of the earth that is said to be above the earth. It is, however, to be noted that they are interested in the happenings of the world and the people that inhabit the earth’s surface.
Grown up under these circumstances, Milkman has a traumatized father since his father witnessed the murder of Jake, Macon’s father, trying to protect his land which is in the way of powerful white people as a young guy. Thereby, his family becomes “a victim of social violence and racism in the hostile south of the USA” and this event leaves a deep impression in Macon’s character (Gomez R. 118). So Macon had never experienced a happy childhood and since his mother died in childbirth, he has never had somebody caring for him. Consequently, Milkman grows up without a model father or loving husband. Solid, rumbling, likely to erupt without prior notice, Macon kept each member of his family awkward with fear.
Similarly, both George Lopez and real fathers take critical backlash from their families. George Lopez grew up unaware of his father’s whereabouts, supposing that he was dead according to his mother’s word; therefore, every time Max, George’s son, mentions the void of his grandfather, George fabricates lies of him (Season two, Episode 1). He says, “He [George’s father] could handle any emergency,” and he says, “My dad loved the house to be filled with music.” Angie, George’s wife, criticizes George on this because Max might obtain the truth of the matter one day; thus, proving his

Both of Edgar Allan Poe’s fathers abandoning him and never supporting him greatly affected Poe. He never had a father figure in his life to support him or that genuinely cared about him. First, the text cites, “The two father figures in his life were never supportive, which may account for many of his struggles” (About Edgar Allan Poe 2). This explains how the abandonment and rejection of Poe’s two father figures affected him in a negative way and may have been the reason he had some of his struggles later in life. Second, the text states, “Even though John Allan had plenty of money, he only gave Edgar about a third of what he needed” (Biography of Edgar Allan Poe 1).
The conclusion I have reached about Chris is that he was a distant and ill-prepared person who had a very strong will. Chris seemed to become someone who was untrusting of others. I think this was caused by his parents. Chris never really saw eye to eye with his parents especially his father and after Chris learned of his father’s past double life his relationship with his parents had begun to deteriorate. A quote from his mother said “‘He seemed mad at us more often, and he became more withdrawn-no, that’s not the right word.
His father used to beat on his mother, siblings and him as well. His environment was a negative impact in his life growing up. As the nature and nurture perspective, Kuklisnky inherited anti-social personality disorted from his abusive parents. His father violence reinforced violence and the lack of conscience and love. He also was diagnosed with paranoid personality disorder, but he never seeks for treatments.
In Peace Like a River by Leif Enger, Davy, Reuben Land’s older brother, runs away after killing two people. Based on Davy’s decision and personality, I believe that his family has never truly known him and he has a darker side that no one noticed. Reuben and his family always believed that they knew exactly who Davy was, however, it becomes apparent in the novel that he is not who anyone thought he was. For instance, Reuben has always known Davy to be in charge of himself, and to play by his own rules. It comes as a surprise to Reuben when he sees that Jape Waltzer is in charge of Davy now because he had “never before heard Davy speak about someone else as though that person and not he himself were in charge” (226).
