He also obstructs his family from making money when he sneaks into the boarders’ room. In Part II, when Gregor eavesdrops on his family’s conversation regarding their financial situation, “he had bent all his endeavors to helping the family get over the commercial catastrophe, which had plunged them all into complete despair” (112). This text shows how Gregor still feels responsible as the family’s only source of income. However, his incapability to provide an income leaves him in total “shame and
Once the sole provider for his family, he now becomes a burden. Internally, he is the same Gregor Samsa, but his physical appearance causes his family to alienate and mistreat him. The use of dehumanization is prevalent in the novel causing the protagonist to suffer with symptoms of depression. He is unable to be a positive contributor in society or for his family. The use of symbolism in the novel displays his isolation and humanity.
Hansberry gives us many examples of her caring nature, starting when she first enters the play, when she takes care of her plant. The plant is old and withering because it doesn’t recieve much light; however, Mama never gives up on her plant. This plant symbolizes the love for her family, even though they do not always have the right intentions at heart, she loves them and tries to nurture them back to health. Another prime example of her caring nature is how she treats Travis, her grandson. She “babies” him in a way, like when he does not make up his bed at first she questions why it is not made, but then she makes it for him.
Also Anne appreciates what her mother does for her and the sacrifices she made. Throughout the whole story Anne appreciates and respects her father. And Anne prefers to go to her father with problems rather than her mother. Compare and contrast the relationship between Anne and Peter at the beginning of the play and later on in the play. At the beginning of the play Anne did not pay attention to Peter.
In the story, while Squeaky is perfectly fine, Raymond is mildly abnormal and not “quite right” which is why he can be regarded as mentally retarded. Because of this reason, Squeaky never leaves her older brother alone so that he does not get in trouble or get lost and nobody may cause him any sort of trouble. She plays the role of Raymond's, friend, sister and bodyguard. This relationship between Raymond and Squeaky clearly expresses the significance of a familial relationship in their lives. I also like how Squeaky understands her brothers problems and stands out for him in the story because she states “And I’ve got an roomful of ribbons and medals and awards.
David witnessed the toll his own mother took after his sister’s passing and attempted to spare his wife those feelings. David remembered the patience involved with his sister and attempted to spare his family those hardships. David experienced being second string to his sister’s needs and attempted to spare his son that neglect. Unfortunately, he could not break free from the inevitability of recreating the life he tried to erase. Grief plays an antagonist in this story, attacking each Henry family member as a result of David’s lie.
The conclusion I have reached about Chris is that he was a distant and ill-prepared person who had a very strong will. Chris seemed to become someone who was untrusting of others. I think this was caused by his parents. Chris never really saw eye to eye with his parents especially his father and after Chris learned of his father’s past double life his relationship with his parents had begun to deteriorate. A quote from his mother said “‘He seemed mad at us more often, and he became more withdrawn-no, that’s not the right word.
You can predict this because when the father wasn’t allowed to drive through the snow he stated, “Your mother will never forgive me for this,” (Wolff 34). This shows that the mother is strict and also that the father has not been trustworthy in the past. The mother and father also do not seem to have a very good relationship and it seems as if the mother is very controlling of her son. From this evidence the reader can infer that the mother is more like her son than she is the boys
The most painful of these words arrives at the end when her son proclaims that the child she raised is not the same anymore. This marks his transition from boyhood to manhood: a transition in which the male perception of female inferiority grows stronger. A mother loves her son, and in modern times there are family disputes; however, they are mostly out of spite for parents in general, not out of misogynistic
