Being honorable and seems so immortal outside but broken into pieces inside allow the audience to relate to him. Okonkwo suffers in many ways one of them is when he has to be banished for seven years because of an incident and he has to let go everything that was once his. Which is again, it is something that no one
A really good metaphor that was used in the poem “A beard for a Blue Pantry” when he says, “Or washed her abundant hair which is gone now, like Bluebeard who sickened and dwindled away”. (Hall). This line is very relatable because I’ve had family that lost their hair due to cancer. He showed the audience what was going on instead of telling us. In my opinion, I believe that the poem “Her Long Illness” really painted an image for the readers and made us feel as if we were there at the hospital with him and watching him nervously pacing around, drinking coffee, and reading poetry to his wife while in chemotherapy.
The first night alone is enough to traumatize and scar Elie forever, which is exactly what he’s saying here. I’ll be honest: this is the first book that has made me cry in a while. I cried when the child was hanged, I cried when I found out that Elie would have been saved by the Soviet Army if he stayed in the infirmary, and I cried when Elie’s dad died. Looking back on this passage, I feel like crying once again. Elie was my age when he was forced into Birkenau, and I can’t even begin to imagine experiencing these barbarities now.

When the clan elders decided that Ikemefuna was going to have to be killed he was very saddened even though he didn’t show it. Okonkwo took in Ikemefuna in not knowing how long he was going to stay with us, Ikemefuna stayed with us for 3 years nobody thought he would be with us for that long. With him staying with us for that long he molded into our family, he became my “brother” and Okonkwo’s “second son”. Seeing them bond over the those three years i know for a fact that he must have been heart broken, but tried not to show that he was weak to the clan elders or the towns people. This took so long dude, and i got rolled by my mom last night haha.
He had been exposed to the elements for 8 days and to top it all off he was poisoned by the irradiated water he had drunk during his escape requiring years of treatment to fully recover. When he discovered he was the only one to successfully escape he was diagnosed with PTSD and fell into a fit of “survivor's guilt” (Kiger) by alienating himself from his family and placed the military before anything else. This was later resolved once he ended his military career and he returned to his family. He soon became the author of a book called “The One That Got Away” and gained great success as a military fiction author. Today Chris Ryan is a public speaker for sufferers of PTSD and holds the SAS record for longest retreat through the desert (Manger).

"I chatted with a Doctor once for around two hours and attempted to pass on to him my fears that I felt come overpowering savage driving forces. After one session I never saw the Doctor again and from that point forward I have been battling my mental turmoil alone and apparently without any result." He then laid out his preparation to slaughter Kathy after he lifted her up from work that night despite the fact that he admits that he is not certain why he is going to do it other than to spare her from the shame of what he was anticipating doing. Whitman then confessed to executing his mom who as he would like to think never happy in life just like her due. He additionally requested a post-mortem after his death to check whether he had any physical issue that could have added to his issues.
