The defining moment in David’s inevitable demise is not when he steals the $100 his mother refuses to lend him, but the “altercation, noisy and bitter between this mother and son” as David’s predicament is a clear representation of his mother’s “mismanagement”, though she never takes responsibility for being the source of sin for her children (84). As the altercation continues, Mrs. Wilson’s focus remains on Martha’s death and her not being chosen or saved by Christ, but David becomes quite hostile voices his plans behind his mother’s back to obtain the funds she refused to provide. While one could expect that David would meet his punishment for stealing, but as seen with Elvira, Jane is once again the scapegoat for the children’s crimes despite her insistence that she had nothing to do with the latest scandal within the Wilson household. When it comes to this event, Mrs. Wilson’s behavior is very hostile towards Jane and I believe that this was an overcompensation for the grief she felt at the realization of her child’s sinful behavior, his corruption. It becomes evident that Mrs. Wilson’s egocentric behavior only worsens near the novel’s end, when David finally succumbs to

In the story it says, “ ‘I know, I know. You’ve said that a hundred times,’ she snapped. ‘What did you say?’ He asked, pushing his newspaper aside.” Maria’s conflict connects to the theme of the story because she is being ungrateful towards her father and wants to grow up too fast.
simply does not fit in that specific category. For instance, Jeremy walks with the Logan children often and when kids on a bus ridicule the Logan children, Jeremy responds in a sympathetic manner even though he does not associate with the hateful white children. The author writes, “He was often ridiculed by the other children at his school...still, Jeremy continued to meet us.” and, “The smile faded and, noticing our mud-covered clothing, he asked, ‘Hey, St-Stacey, wh-what happened?’... Then he whispered, “W-was it the bus again?’
would never admit to the notes being his. His mother, right then and there, whipped him and failed T.J and him on the test.

He, again, thought about his past; the time that he was bullied for being... different, or in other words, himself.
The characters is very much interested in reason, as we can see since the beginning of the novel, in which he tells his son that they will not be able to go to the Lighthouse the following day because of the bad weather. Thus, we discover Mr Ramsay is not interested at all in James´s feelings, an attitude that is condemned by his wife, who loathes him because she believes him to have destroyed her son´s feelings, a destruction she believes will last till the end of their child´s life. Mr Ramsay´s superiority lays on his belief that he is intellectually superior than his wife and as such, he necessarily needs to be always right, he needs “to pursue truth with such astonishing lack of consideration for other people’s feelings” and that is, for
Atwood’s vague language exemplifies its power to arise conflicting interpretations. An incorrect term causes suspicion of disloyalty. By regulating the choice of language, the Handmaid’s are unable to express their condemning feelings and motives of the society, and is restricted to thought in a biblical sense. Their thought process is self-reinforcing as the Handmaids reciprocate their scepticism. Their lack of communication and inability to trust isolates them, and allows Gilead to prevail without upheaval.

In the short story Saturday Climbing, I believe the author is conveying that although our love for people can leave us wanting keep them safe and protect them with every ounce of our being we must allow them to make errors and grown even more so into the people we love. I witnessed W.D Valgardson do this in the text by using flashbacks, similes and metaphors. W.D Valgardson uses flashbacks in the Saturday Climbing to help the reader understand where the Barry (the father) is coming from, and take us back to the moments when his feelings first arose. For example Barry has a flashback to the moment when Moira ( his daughter) was three years old and “she had eaten a bottle of aspirin. He had scooped her up and [ran] with her four blocks to the hospital.”
