A few key aspects of Willy cause the reader to classify him as a tragic figure. For example, he started out as a young man with specific dreams, looking up to his brother, Ben, who always recounted, “When I was seventeen I walked into the jungle, and when I was twenty-one I walked out. And by God I was rich” (Miller 48). Willy’s main goal in life was to experience the American Dream as Ben did, but he never accomplished this because he became a salesman, and a poor one at that.

The son claims that his father “could drop it [the bunt] like a seed,” which implies that the father’s sacrifice has been gingerly placed in order to grow strong one day (8). This simile demonstrates the care with which the father tries to teach the son how to bunt. The only other simile compares the son’s sign to his father, the poem itself, to “a hand brushed across the bill of a cap” (21). Once again this figurative comparison connotes a tender love and mutual respect between the father and son, especially considering that this simile compares the poem to the baseball equivalent of a salute. Overall, through the use of symbols and figurative comparisons, the poem conveys the tender admiration shared between the father and son, despite their lack of

After Jonas has been learning his whole life that lying is bad then being told he can lie all he wants is a big change for him. Maybe everything he knows is a lie. So, in all the moment where reads his last rule that lets him lie makes him wonder if all the adults have lied to him his entire life even though he’s been taught all these years to do the opposite because it was such an integral part of precise speech.

I no longer enjoyed thinking about the future because I didn’t know how long my dad would be in it; ALS patients can survive for a few short months or in rare cases decades. Watching him struggle to do simple tasks like walk and talk was devastating, but I had to be strong for him. My father required a lot of care as his disease progressed and I was always there for him in every way I could. My dad developed bronchitis eleven months after I received the news of his disorder. For patients with ALS breathing is typically a difficult task, having
What I also liked is how the story still continues years after years just not for like a day or month. A Quote that I admire in Chapter 3 stated “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it”. In the end of Chapter 29-30 this is when Scout learned the valuable lesson her father taught her because once their attacker was pulled away from them that night she realized it was Mr. Arthur or “Boo Radley”. A Man that has never been seen since he was young nor been out of the house, helping two young children from a Racist, Old, Caucasian man. At the beginning of this novel they pictured Mr. Arthur as an old, mean, eating animal being but now since they have really seen him he’s just a hero and caring
