In the epigraph, August Wilson states that we do not always have to act out the sins of our fathers and that it 's possible to banish them with forgiveness. While Troy may not have forgiven his father, after he marries Rose, he doesn 't act on the sins of his father. Troy 's father didn 't teach Troy any positive traits directly, instead Troy adopted them in order to differentiate himself from his father and to live a better life. Troy learned the value of hard work from his father and all the time he spent working on the farm when he was younger and he lives by that trait. He takes care of his family because he knows it 's the responsible thing to do no matter what.
Eric Bartels analyzes the difficulties of modern-day marriage in his article, “My Problem with Her Anger,” by examining his own marital experiences. By optimistic confrontation and resolution of his family’s problems, Bartels believes that not only will he save his marriage, but he will also be rewarded for his sacrifices (63).

Despite the author’s attempts, he contends that his endeavors to decrease his wife’s stress
The conclusion of the book is Sensei turning into K. He starts to bury his sorrows in his books and restrict his emotions, even though that is what killed K. Sensei has everything K wanted, Shizu and the restrictions of being a monk. However, Sensei never wanted to be a monk, he only wanted Shizu, but he cannot have her.

Sensei does not care who the narrator tells once Shizu is dead, but until she dies, he cannot tell anyone.

When Jonas is receiving memories of the past, he feels pain, relaxation, rejoice, and sadness. Memories are usually passed down through stories from relatives, but in the Giver the communities relatives remember as much, maybe even less than they do. Without sharing memories of the past, memories are no use. History from wars, and the memories, our world needs so that humans can keep a balance and not keep making the same mistakes. Learning about the history of wars in the past can prepare us for the
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.
