The reaction Walter experiences are similar to the line “Maybe it just sags/like a heavy load” (Hughes 9-10).

In this book, Gerald gets abused by his drunk father. He wants to get rid of him, but Monique, the mother is very loyal to Jordan and defends him. This makes Gerald’s life miserable, and the only thing that brings a smile to his face is his step-sister, Angel, whom he possessively cares for. Therefore, referring to some parts, and experience as a person, I can state that loyalty doesn’t always go both ways. Many people do not care if loyalty doesn’t return to them.
He also displayed a detrimental fixed mindset regarding his unfortunate circumstances as evidenced by his “Fuck God “comment when he pondered the sad state of his reality in West Baltimore. The contradictory, but well intentioned advice from his brother, Tony, failed to resonate because he, himself, was a drug dealer and their mother, while having the best of intentions, thought the best way to solve their problem was by constantly changing locations, which did Wes no favors in my opinion, because as Author Wes states, “the hood comes in different shapes and sizes” (Moore 97) Ironically, Other Wes found trouble no matter how hard his mother literally tried to remove him from it. Wes’ problems compounded due to a criminal background, 4 kids to feed and mounting financial pressures from his family. His desperate circumstances led him to commit a fatal robbery, which he, along with his brother, Tony, and two others were charged and subsequently convicted of. During a conversation between him and Author Wes Moore in prison, where he serves a life sentence, Other Wes Moore once again displays the fixed mindset that permeated throughout his youth and now into adulthood with this statement; he says: “We will do what is expected of us, if they expect us to graduate, we will graduate.
In the wake of Marion Crane’s death, several instances of the defense mechanism, denial, can be observed. Norman Bates utilizes this defense mechanism in order to acquit himself from any potential allegations made towards him while simultaneously living an unorthodox life, characterized by a feeling of normalcy. In simple terms, denial is refusing to accept that something has happened; if something goes wrong, one may utilize this defense mechanism to relieve the anxiety and/or stress that are subsequent products of adversity. Bates’ relationship with his mother had become severely tarnished; by virtue of this vitiation, Bates killed his mother. He developed a split-personality of his mother in order to suppress the guilt that plagued his conscious

This speech reveals to us that not only is Hamlet incredibly dismal over his fathers death and the wedding, but he holds a very low opinion of himself. Not only is he so upset that he contemplates suicide, he also compares himself as opposite Hercules, who is heroic and strong. Hamlet also reflects greatly on the theme of corruption. He reveals the corruption of his uncle who is a unfit for old Hamlet 's crown and has married his brothers wife without properly grieving for his brother. Hamlet also explains his mothers corruption as she appeared to be in love with Hamlet 's father yet was corrupt in her quick remarriage with little grief for her fallen love.
However, despite being “unsure of their futures, with nowhere to direct their anger and no one to assuage their fears” (GEN X – SITE SOURCE), the characteristic of Generation X which really draws parallels to Palahniuk’s novel is the high divorce rate of the time. The impact of an influential feminized society is yet again bolstered by the norm of a woman being in complete control as a result of fathers leaving the household. In the novel, Jack mentions his absent father, and thus begins seeing a father figure in Tyler after having lacked strong male models whilst growing up. To the cohort of members in Fight Club feeling effeminate as a result, Tyler concludes that they are a “generation of men raised by women” (PAGE), further nourishing the men’s desire to fight and express their wrath to regain their identities. Due to their upbringing, the men in Fight Club lack a masculine portrayal, and hence idealize Tyler as the sole example of what masculinity should be.
This scene shows her to be entitled to her husband’s earnings. A conflict appears early on in the play, where the reader finds out that Nora borrowed money to save her husband’s life.

“You are free to make whatever choice you want, but you are not free from the consequences of the choice.”-Ezra Taft Benson. This quote by Benson relates to the novel Tangerine by Edward Bloor. The characters in the novel don’t make good life choices and in the end, they pay for the mistake. Paul Fisher’s parents make bad decisions with treating their two sons. In the story, their choices affect Paul by causing him to have low self esteem, fearing his brother and feeling isolated.
In the 1920s, there was a division between the people who were born into money and the people who worked for it, or the “old money,” and the “new money.” While there were major differences between the two groups, they had one fundamental similarity. This was that they both lacked a sense of morality. In the Great Gatsby, the old money are portrayed as very superficial and immoral. One example of this is how they viewed the “new money” as nobodies. The biggest example of their lack in morality, however, was in how Tom and Daisy Buchanan dealt with Daisy’s murder of Myrtle Wilson.
Scrooge left her and he did not attempt to reconcile their relationship. Greed blinded Scrooge because, it replaced not only his compassion but also the most important part of his life; his beloved sweetheart it caused him to only care about the money or dowry which caused him to leave her. This event also proves that the theme is that greed causes us to lose our humanity and our compassions.
I honestly believe Ruth in the play did not have much of a impact on Walter Lee 's masculinity. Walter Lee ignores Ruth For most of the play and what she really wants for the family. Walter chooses to only focuses on what he believes the family should have.Walter Lee 's behavior towards her is taking a real toll on Ruth ,this is what has contributed to the deterioration of their relationship. Walter 's mother had far more of a impact. His deceased father had more of a impact and one could argue Travis who I like to compare to Walt Jr form Breaking Bad.
Raymond Chandler’s cynical view, as shown in The Big Sleep, is that people will do whatever it takes to get money, and not many people can be trusted. This draws a parallel to the time period in which this novel was written in, The Great Depression. During this period, people were desperate to do whatever it takes in order to get money. Throughout the novel, people have shown the principle flaw in this view, doing anything to get money, even if it is considered illegal. This can be seen at various points where people attempt activities such as blackmailing the General, murdering Geiger for his business, and other forms of crime.
Judging by the title, this article can conclude that Massachusetts is losing money due to the child support system. The author takes an interesting route when starting off their argument, “Parents who default on child support payments don’t generally inspire a lot of sympathy; the notion of the “deadbeat dad” has long been fixed in the public consciousness, with punitive public policies
