He knows that he and his son are the last of the Mohicans and respects his son because of the power that he holds to carry on the sacred legacy. In the relationship between Colonel Munro and his daughters one can see that his daughters do not hold their father to the same figure that Uncas holds his father. Although the daughters do respect him they openly disagree with their father in many instances. One example of this is when the character Hawkeye is guilty of sedition and then he is met with objection from his daughter. The daughter begs Colonel Munro to change his mind.
“My Papa's Waltz”, by Theodore Roethke, and “Those Winter Sundays”, by Robert Hayden are the two poems that are somewhat similar and both of these poems are about beloved fathers. Father is the man who is spends time with you and takes care of you. While doing so much for the family he gains the respect and love from the family. In these two poems Roethke and Hayden take a flashback at the actions of their fathers. Even though both of these poems propose that their fathers were not perfect, they still love them.
Both fathers are quiet men. Both fathers seem to work hard. The difference in the fathers is in the way they express or don 't express their love for their children. In “Wordsmith “the daughter 's father expresses his love through his actions. He repairs his daughter 's old house which proves how much he loves her.
The relationship between the two is more important than his work. Love: Love is a major theme in the poem “Bearhug”. Despite the fact that his father gave priority to his work and made him wait, Griffin loves his father unconditionally. When his father comes to give him a hug, he sticks to him like a magnet which shows the strong bond that was present between father and son. The father hugs him and because he loves him, realizes the mistake and feels guilty.
The four loves are: Storge (affection), Philia (Friendship Love), Eros (Romantic Love), and Agape (Divine Love). C.S. Lewis mentioned that the Gift-Love is “love which moves a man to work and plan and save for the future well-being of his family, which he will die without sharing or seeing” (pg. 11). A man’s role in life is to provide for the family in most cases, other than those great single mothers, but their hard work has a reward and it is the happiness of their family.
Bob tends to neglects his children’s needs. Walter Sr. demonstrates what hard work is for his children. They all raise their their children differently. Atticus Finch is the type of father who is loving, caring, and an honorable man. He is Jems and Scouts father and he takes an active part in his children's upbringing.
However, in “The Gift,” this reflection is very nostalgic and appreciative. The speaker describes the caring nature of his father and how this kindness passed down to him, as demonstrated by his loving treatment of his own wife. The speaker recalls the “two measures of tenderness” that were his father’s hands and “the flames of discipline / he raised above my head” (“Gift” 10-13). “The Gift” and “The Lanyard” are both reflective, but “The Gift” takes a more nostalgic turn while “The Lanyard” is more
In his recollections of his parents' relationship he mentions their devotion to each other mainly, and not that of their child. In addition, if everything was centered on fulfilling his mother’s wishes and needs, one wonders at the son's account of the love left over for him: "they seemed to draw inexhaustible stores of affection from a very mine of love to bestow them upon me" (Shelley 33). The narrator claims to be too credible when he assures us
Above all, Atticus is a father that his kids can be proud of. He’s teaching them through his actions and words. He’s being a role model for kindness, truth and justice. Jem and Scout learned valuable life lessons through their time spent with Atticus. I think Atticus was the hero in this book for all the above reasons.
The specific diction will highlight the real truth between the father and son relationship and what it means. In My Papa’s Waltz the speaker is a son who loves his father deeply even though his home is torn apart by alcohol and abuse. When reading throughout the poem there are words that will pop out
