The father seems to almost be trying to train the persona of the poem to do things exactly as he says. The reason that this has negative effect on the boy is because he does not even realize that his father is not treating him right. Roethke writes, “Still clinging to your shirt” (16).

When it comes to “The book of Ruth” in the bible and “The Human Comedy” by William Sorayan, both of these text also show how individuals leave there home town or state to be either with their families or to provide for themselves and their households. The book of Ruth shows how Naomi loses all of her sons, in a sense she basically lost her home. She did not have anyone to support her or be there for her so that really had an impact in her life.
