As a child, there is a good chance the boy uses dancing, singing, and his imagination to alleviate the pain he receives from life. Because of the child’s joyful appearance, the parents overlook the damaging effects and possible fatal consequences from sending him into the workplace. Similar to the boy in “The Chimney Sweeper”, “Lucy Gray” tells the story of a girl who spends a lot of time on her own. The girl’s father sends her to town by herself to light the way for her mother. The father tells the girl, “To-night will be a stormy—You to the town must go” (Wordsworth).

The poems “Hide and Seek”, “Remember” and “Do not go gentle into that good night” have all displayed the theme of fear at its best, using various techniques to achieve their desired effect. “Hide and Seek” deals with the fear and nervousness an innocent young boy could experience as he first steps out into the potentially dangerous, unrestful society, using a simple childhood game to highlight the stark differences between childhood and adulthood. On the other hand, “Remember” copes with the torment and anxiety Rossetti encounters of being potentially forgotten by her lover after death, although she had given in to her view and instead wishes a better life for her partner, born out of a deep and devoted love for him. “Do not go gentle”, however, takes on a more hostile and belligerent approach, contradicting with Rossetti’s peace and acceptance of death. This violent act, mixed with fears of his father’s possible demise, exhibits Thomas’s mental inability and unwillingness to let go of such an important part of his life, instead urging his father to rise against an inevitable ending.

Holden Caulfield, the main character sees this as an essential which relates to his struggle to grow up and how his relationships are affected by it. Salinger uses unfortunate circumstances of Holden’s life to depict that he is a mentally and emotionally unstable individual who is looking for the innocence he once had as a child. As Holden repeatedly brings up situations that has taken place in his life it offers the reader insight on the grief and pain that Holden carries inside. An example of this is when Holden’s younger sister, Phoebe challenges Holden to tell her one thing that he likes, all he can come up with is his younger brother Allie who sadly died of Leukemia. When Phoebe tries to snap Holden into reality that Allie is no longer around, he immediately gets defensive saying, “‘I know he’s dead!
The narrator is dealing with the guilt of living while her brother died for her, and she feels obligated to his ghost. When the narrator is aware that her brother is knocking on her door, she hesitates to answer, but she, "reminds myself that he had given up his life for me. The least I could do was open the door"(7). The narrator not welcoming her brother in with open arms shows that she is emotionally closed. This should be a moment of rejoice, a time to be comforted by her brother, but instead she is avoiding it because she has ignored her own emotions.
The author’s choice of the word “hate” is prominent as it speaks about Robert’s relationship with his sisters years after this took place, but it also raises the question of whether his sisters still hate him. While Robert is sitting on his parents’ bed, he observes his sisters in great detail as “They put creams and powders on their faces, they used lipstick…” (McEwan, 4-5). The use of a list shows how the image of his sisters slowly disappeared with each layer of makeup. In addition to the list, the author also frequently repeats “they”, which increases the distance between Robert and his sisters. Indeed, throughout the extract, McEwan and Robert always refer to Eva and Maria as “my sisters” or “they”, grouping them as one individual person allowing them to become interchangeable.
