This displays the fear that the author had for his father. When reflecting over the poem, John J. Mckenna stated, “The author replaced the rather benign ‘kept’ with ‘beat’ thus making the situation more ominous, more negative” Roethke’s father worked manual labor and had a strong physique.

John can then discuss the shame, sadness, disappointment and anger that his father feels towards Leroy and his own reactions on siding with his uncle in the conflict. John begins to see that his father is processing both incarcerations in the same way, and is able to lower his anxiety regarding the lack of acceptance his father gives him. We then discuss the emotional cutoff that occurred and how that impacted the Smith family’s relationship with Rob’s parents.

When an emotional cutoff occurs, extra pressure is placed on the other relationships in someone’s life.

Nwoye decides to make his first change responded to his father’s dissatisfaction to him, “That was the kind of story that Nwoye loved. But he knew that they were for foolish women and children, and he knew that his father wanted him to be a man.” In Things Fall Apart, the descriptions of Nwoye mainly portray one kind of personality—fear towards his father Okonkwo.

While Atticus told Jem to go home, Jem refused to by nodding his head several times until Atticus let him stay.
