This shows when Brother states, “Doodle and I spent lots of time thinking about our future” (Hurst). The story showed from the beginning that Doodle was in his Brother’s mind a lot. Brother wanted the best for his sibling because he didn’t want to be known as “the boy with the crippled brother”, but also, he wants Doodle to be able to enjoy the may gifts of life.
The story " The Scarlet Ibis " by James Hurst starts with a young boy becoming a big brother. When his younger brother became old enough to walk but it turned out the he couldn 't walk so, he teaches him how to walk and in the end it becomes one of the reasons he dies. So, who is responsible for his death his older brother is is responsible for the death of Doodle his younger brother. How Doodle 's older brother is responsible for his death: his brother didn 't put thought into his condition, he didn 't think about his brothers feelings, and he only thought about himself. Why his brother didn 't put thought into his brothers condition.
Brother was embarrassed at having Doodle as a brother from the very beginning. He hated that he couldn’t walk, and that he had to take him everywhere he went, and that he wasn’t a normal brother to play with. Brother was embarrassed that Doodle, at age 5, Doodle couldn’t even walk, and soon he would have to go to school, and Doodle would have to carry him around everywhere. Brother even planned, to kill Doodle for himself. Brother did some cruel things to Doodle.
And so, despite Doodle’s disabilities, he wanted to teach him how to walk, because he was ashamed of having a brother that couldn’t walk. For example, “Doodle told them it was I who had taught him how to walk, so everyone wanted to hug me, and I began to cry. ‘What are you crying for?’ asked Daddy, but I couldn’t answer. They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices; and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” (347). This quote from the story immensely shows how Brother is signified as selfish, and he forces Doodle to become someone he isn't, in order to not be perceived as different by other people.
For, I loved him in a different way than I loved Eliza, or even Angelica. But was it love? Now, I say yes, even if I couldn’t earlier.” Another question that could be asked is, “How do you feel about your father?” Hamilton’s father left when he was young and didn’t respond to any attempts Hamilton made to contact him. A possible answer is, “I have no resentment towards him. Yes, I feel a longing for a father, but I know him being in my life and not wanting to is worse than not being there at all.” There are many questions that Hamilton could be asked, but these are just two important
These examples are as followed; “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable” (Pg 595). Also, “Sometimes I accidentally turned him over, but he never told Mama” (596). Last of all “When Doodle was five years old, I was embarrassed at having a brother of that age who couldn’t walk” (597). It begins with Brother stating that “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable” (Pg 595). Referring that being an invalid brother is nothing of excitement or in his case pride.
This quote shows irony as Jack was unaware that he had any real family members until the end of the play. ‘You have never behaved to me like a brother in all your life’ reflects the relationship of Jack and Algernon and that it is rather close knit as they fight and bicker like brothers usually would. The use of caesura at the start of the quote ‘Algy, you young scoundrel, ‘ shows the possible overwhelmedness of jack in finding out that he has a brother, it shows a pause in his language and that he is thinking of what actions to take. The whole play is about the search for identity and what it truly means to be ‘earnest’. The search for Jack’s true identity is revealed at the end of the play when he finds out that he has a family, giving a cathartic release to many of the characters as jack has gone his whole life thinking that he has no real family, when in fact he has a brother and an aunt etc.
The narrator wished for a perfect brother that his would be able to do things with but when he wasn’t given that it caused him to do things that no brother should ever do or think about doing to his younger brother.

He is saying the offices are standing for a duty or obligation. He also uses repetition in this line when he says “What did I know" twice showing the speaker's feeling of regret for not understanding how hard his father worked every single morning. Also in lines 13 and 14 explains that the speakers childhood was unhappy. He didn’t know much about love so he was not able to appreciate it whenever his father showed him love.
