We first see Scout experiencing racism in the street when Lafayette Dubose rudely teases her and Jem because her father is a “nigger-lover” for taking the case on the side of Tom Robinson. Jem destroys her flowers, and they both go home, but Atticus knows what they did and tells them the meaning of the phrase. Atticus tells them that it means someone who puts himself or herself above Negros, and that he is indeed a “nigger-lover” because he tries his best to love everybody. He goes on to explain that everybody will be saying that because no one wants the Negro to win in the trial, as the townspeople believe that will lead to worse crimes from Negroes. Therefore, Scout realizes this may happen many more
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.

One specific example would be Big Daddy and his desire for conformity. He reveals to his son Brick that he hates going to church and he hates his wife, and his other son Gooper and he hates almost every aspect of his life but he endures it every day just so that he can conform to social norms. Think of all the lies I got to put up with! Ain 't that mendacity? Having to pretend stuff you don 't think or feel or have any idea of?
The family was full of lies and big daddy children Brick and Gooper wives wanted big daddy property once he passed. Brick tells Big daddy the truth about his clinic report and Big daddy explains to brick why he is so depressed after Skipper death. Brick is having emotional issues because he believes it is his fault Skipper is dead. Tennessee Williams explores that how telling the truth can make you understand
He is Hamlet’s love interest’s brother who implicates Hamlet’s success through conflict. Hamlet sparks the rivalry between the two families by killing some of the family members. By executing Laertes father and Polonius, this causes Polonius’ son, Laertes, to seek vengeance for his father. Consequently, Hamlet’s family goes against him and his love, Ophelia, kills herself. This demonstrates that family ties, even if not blood related, have serious impacts on Hamlet’s life which causes misery to overwhelm his life; this misery prohibits his success.
Emily Dickinson is a depressed romantic. She falls in love with men she cannot have and her family constantly revised her poems; making them lose their meanings. In “Tell all the Truth but tell it slant” she says “The Truth must dazzle gradually or every man be blind-” (1,7-8). Dickinson has had her heart broken so many times by men and it was always delivered quickly and cruelly. Dickinson might have felt that if it was broken to her more gently and kindly she might not feel this way and feel so blindsided by her unrequited love.
