Frethorne begins his letter by demonstrating how he has matured through experiencing the hardships of life in the new world. Because of the context of the letter, Frethorne is also attempting to ingratiate his parents to aid him in his plight. Frethorne writes: “Loving and kind father and mother: My most humble duty remembered to you, hoping in God of your good health, as I myself am at the making hereof” (par. 1). Frethorne’s use of diction in the words “Loving,” “kind,” and “humble” reminds his father and mother of their role as caretakers and paints himself in the light of a son thinking of his parents to strengthen his case for assistance later in the letter. To accompany this, Frethorne uses the imagery of his diet to appeal to his parents’ compassion.
Through his grief at the loss of his best friend, the boy whispers to the spirit of his father, “I’ll talk to you everyday... I won’t forget. No matter what” (McCarthy 286). With the use of diction, McCarthy appeals to pathos as he hints to the omnipresent spirit of the man that encompasses the boy’s daily actions. He has come to terms with the fact that he must fight for his own survival and “then he rose and turned and walked back out to the road” (McCarthy 286).

The following citation gives the reader insight into Bobinôt’s feelings towards his wife. “Bobinôt’s explanations and apologies which he had been composing all along the way, died on his lips as Calixta felt him to see if he were dry, and seemed to express nothing but satisfaction at their safe return.” (Chopin, page 547) He is ready to apologize to his wife for something he believes she would be upset although it has nothing to do with him, nor is it his fault. This citation could show how submissive Bobinôt is towards his wife.
Fatherhood is important to every male around the world. When a male becomes a father it is something special. Everyone have their own meaning of what a father is, but only a father knows the true meaning of being a father. The point of being a father is not the title the father’s gets after the child is born, but what fatherhood entitles. Fatherhood entitles a life full of growth and a new level of love.
The direct and indirect characterization of Doodle shows the cruelty and how much the mentally handicapped were neglected in the time of the text in the story “The Scarlet Ibis”.

They don’t realize he needs extra help and treats him like a annoying burden. Once they realized Doodle would always be like this they just ignore him, even if he wasn’t speaking.
Rivers is referred to as a paternal figure whose patients look up to him for care and cure, acutely dependent like Anderson’s case does. Even Sassoon notes that Dr. Rivers’s departure for sick leave reminds him of his father’s departure when Sassoon was a young boy. Yet Dr. Rivers is also referred to as a “male mother” by Layard, a former patient, because nurturing is viewed as a feminine trait (106). Later, as he is departing the hospital, Prior tells the psychologist that he reminds him of his supportive mother. Regardless of these shifting gender roles, Dr. Rivers remains a strong parental figure to his patients.

Wake up, they’re going to throw you out the side!” (pg 99) shows the reader that midway through the story Elie still really cared about his father and did not want him to die. He still had hope that his dad could survive. However, this quote at the end of the story, “I no longer thought of my father,” (pg 113) showed that he lost all hope and only thought about himself and his own health due to the circumstances. Also, Elie was not the only son going through

Violent tendencies stay with David since he jabbed out his high school bully’s eyes not feeling guilty because “he’s not that type of person” to Amy (his love interest) (334). In one scene, David realises after his blackout that he has killed Amy while on “soy sauce”. This is problematic as David kept a promise to her old brother (Big Jim) that he will look after Amy if he dies. Yet, Wong uses analepsis of Big Jim ’s wish (isolating his last line: “I want you to promise me”) to play in David’s mind to contrast the image of him “[unwrapping Amy’s] corpse” in his shed (279).
