There is no happy ending for Eveline and her siblings. This theme of dysfunctional families was clear and very occurring throughout each short story. Counterparts also represented an abusive father who too was the reason for their families being dysfunctional. Both of these stories began with hopelessness and the endings both succeeded in proving that the two short stories in fact included the theme dysfunctional families. Not only due to the fathers, but how the children in both stories are paralyzed and afraid of their own household.
Catherine is most affected by this loss. According to Howard, Martin, Berlin and Gunn (2012), this absence could be seen as key to the instability of familial ties. Such instability is particularly obvious in the growing gap between Mr. Earnshaw and his children. In the beginning Mr. Earnshaw is introduced as a kind father, asking his children what to bring for them from Liverpool, however, after his wife’s death Mr. Earnshaw is unable to understand Jokes from his children and “Catherine, on her part, had no idea why her father should be crosser and less patient in his ailing condition” (Bronte, 2009, p.36). While Nelly assert that Mr. Earnshaw was a kindhearted father though he was rather severe and strict sometimes, this does not eliminate the fact his relationship with his children, following his wife’s death, was characterized by negligence and lack of understanding.

Also fully in the next stanza we get the scene of rough housing and the mother not approving but also not doing anything, “We romped/ My mother’s countenance/Could not unfrown itself” (5-8).

Yet in the head despite the abuse the son receives from his father often he still loves him wanting his father’s love in return “Then waltzed me off to bed/still clinging to your shirt” (15-16).

The author Cormac McCarthy just seemed to give us an abundance of tragedy and violence as the father of the boy keeps trying to tell him that they’ll make it even though everything seemed to be bleak.

This newer world seems to be extremely backwards and even one of my favorite quotes in the book proves it, “You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.” It shows that nothing in the old world matters since all you can seem to remember are the dreadful things in order for you to know that in this time and age the situation are dangerous, which makes you push yourself in order to survive. Since their new world was post- apocalyptic, there is no more relying on law enforcement agencies or in humanity either.
