**********Exploring the Joyce 's traumatizing childhood experiences************* Hello, folks!! As I have cited on Discussion 8 as the following: During his academic periods, he excelled through the University College Dublin, although his father was an alcoholic and eventually unemployed, which contributed to the emotional isolation of his mother. Howevaer, James must love her, because he drank heavily after his mother 's death, caused by liver cancer in 1904. According to the James Joyce Centre, Joyce wrote to a colleague to answer that "he believed his mother was killed by his father 's behavior" (James Joyce Centre, 2014). , not only James Joyce, but also any children would have struggled to understand their own mother 's emotional stresses, due to the uncertain financial pressures, and especially the dysfunctional family circumstances, although the mother may be performing a social role as a "shock absorber" economically and emotionally to serve for her husband and children (Suzuki, 2017).
CONFLICTS The overall novel is written on the conflict of global infertility, but the storyline progressed quite slowly for the first two to three chapters before the first main conflict occurred. Theo, the novel’s protagonist, has loss faith of humanity and runs over his fifteen-month-old daughter, Natalie, on accident and was left by his wife Helena who was horrified, guilty, and consumed with grief as she thought that Theo couldn’t care less which was true.

Before Dahl's father passed away, he insisted that Roald attend English school because “they're the best in the world.” So Sofie Dahl sent little Roald off to boarding school in England where he would be – unknown to her – abused and starved by his professors and the headmaster. One thing that kept him going though, were the letters he exchanged with his mother and continued to exchange with her until she passed away. While attending high school, the boys in his dormitory would receive packages every so often from the splendid chocolate manufacturers Cadbury.

When she was fifteen she lost her father to systemic lupus, the disease that would eventually end her own life at age thirty-nine. The publication of her first short-story collection, A Good Man Is Hard to Find, made her Christian views and dark comic intent clear to her readers. The majority of her work resists conventional description. Although many of her narratives begin in the familiar quotidian world—on a family vacation—they are not realistic and certainly not in the sense of the southern realism of William Faulkner. Furthermore, although O 'Connor wrote during a time of social change in the South, those changes—and the relationships among blacks and whites—were not at the center of her fiction.
This is what i observed in paragraph 2 of , "A long way gone, "when it states, "Why have i been the only one to survive the war? Why was i the last person in my immediate family to be alive.” Also in , "A Long way gone This explains that he is the last person of his family to live and that is a sad situation. He has to fend for himself and this is MISFORTUNATE for any child forced to ENDURE this. The text "Babes in Arms," also illustrates this when it states,"in Beah 's case the arrivals of the rebels in his small town meant sudden separation from his parents." The authors clearly are making the same point.
.When I gazed into the eyes of my grandmother and my hero, I had no idea that those familiar brown eyes no longer knew who I was. I knew she was stumbling in life and that for the first time in over 10 years, she was separated from my grandfather and placed into an assisted living community. My hero was falling, but to what extent I failed to grasp until that first and most difficult visit. No one in the family knew my grandmother suffered from alzheimer 's until the disease had already run rampant throughout her strong mind. It turned her memories against her, seemingly repositioning her life changing the Vietnam hero and sheriff into a woman who knew not even herself.
