The paragraph in Sanders’ essay that explains the story behind the handle of his hammer and how he had broken it several times uses an anecdotal story to convey Sanders’ attitude towards his father 's death. The speaker broke his hammer’s handle once by attempting to “pull sixteen-penny nails out of floor joists”; an idea even the speaker admitted was foolish. His father’s response of “You ever hear of a crowbar?” captures the relationship Sanders had with his father. His father was sarcastic at his son’s humorous and avoidable failure, indicating a close relationship between the two. This revelation of the closeness he had with his father conveys the feelings of sadness the speaker would have immediately after his death.
He uses “his brother” to show the family influences to both him and his brother.As states in the the story “ Mieyo, on the other hand, was casting himself into deeper and deeper isolation, into a place where I could not help him as I once did as a kid brother”(201). Baca mentions “as I once did” which hints that he knows what his brother faces because they have the same issue that they hardly communicate to others. And this shows Baca no longer puts himself into deeper and deeper isolation. He overcomes what his brother is struggling right now.He comes further and further away from his brother. On the other hand, his relationship with his brother also comes further away because his brother has draw an uncrossable line and separates himself from people around him.To support that, Baca writes “ I could not help him.”Baca smartly writes about his brother who not only compares their similarities on the same experiences but also distinguish their differences in order to show that his changes, and the reinforcement of the power of reading.

Eventually, leaning on older brothers knowledge infiltrates other aspects of life to the point that a sense of sibling dependency develops within younger siblings. This type of sibling interaction is a major theme in Michael Cunningham’s White Angel. In fact, in just the second paragraph, the narrator says, referring to his older brother “I made no move without his counsel” (379). Throughout the short story he continues to hint at his dependency on his older brother with phrases like “I lean into Carlton’s certainty as if it gave off heat” and “I run to Carlton for protection” (380, 389). [ANALYZE] Similarly, in We The Animals the protagonist overtly displays a dependency on his older brother Manny.

Pulling his dad’s super cool pocket knife out of his back pocket, he tried to remember his method from Call of Duty.
This displays the fear that the author had for his father. When reflecting over the poem, John J. Mckenna stated, “The author replaced the rather benign ‘kept’ with ‘beat’ thus making the situation more ominous, more negative” Roethke’s father worked manual labor and had a strong physique. This means that he might’ve been too rough with his son at times, but not intentionally to hurt him. That is one of the reasons Roethke feared his father slightly. Another change Roethke made to the poem was the gender of the child.
As we know from the story what happened between Chris and the man with the dog, the man use that to make fun of his family in front of his friends so, he his crying and suffering from that deep inside When he told his friends in the wood before they find the body how the feeling other people opinion could make the person be satisfied condition.
