It is Luke’s fatherly love for his daughter that leads to his dilemma between pursuing the truth of doing what is just and right and demonstrating his love for his daughter. "A Father's Story," by Andre Dubus shares that the love of a father toward his own daughter means that he will protect her even if the process calls for him to misplace a part of himself. To protect his daughter, the father is forced to undergo challenges, a battle between his mind and his values. In the story, Luke Ripley, the protagonist, drops his core principles and ethical values deliberately to protect his daughter.

The summer solider and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country” (Paine 108). The quote is effective

For example, Byron goes from throwing people at fences, to risking his own life to save his brother’s. In the beginning of the story, Byron is a rude jerk who doesn’t care about anyone else. However, towards the end of the story Byron becomes a kind, strong-willed person willing to save his brother’s life by risking his own. At the beginning of the novel, Byron makes some pretty bad choices.

What is the most this novel were the varying human connections and relationship that it explored so thoroughly. There was Kimberly and her mother, Kimberly and Matt, Kimberly and Aunt Paula, Aunt Paula and Kimberly 's mother, Kimberly and Annette, etc. All of the relationships felt so real and loved that there was something in each of them that everyone benefitted from.

Gradgrind about the lack of emotions taught in the class. “She uncovered her head, and letting her cloak and hood fall where they might, stood looking at him so colorless, so dishevelled, so defiant and despairing, that he was afraid of her” (pg 208), the quote illustrates how the emotional state Louisa is feeling has taken over physically as well.

As an example of some of their similarities, both Grendel and Beowulf are preceded by tales of their great strength and power. Beowulf, as a great hero with a great history, is known for his “awesome strength” (418). Yet Grendel, too, possesses an air of legend: Beowulf acknowledges that the “news of Grendel” is “hard to ignore” (408-409). Beowulf, when speaking of Grendel, even adopts a scop-like formula as he speaks, saying, “I have heard...” (433).
