Since Edgar was born, he has been rejected by many men he knew. Edgar’s original father left the family before Edgar was born due to “disappointment,” his step-father, John Allan, hated Edgar as his adopted son, and even men who judged his poems and stories disapproved publishing Edgar’s works. Throughout Edgar’s life, this was another of the large impacts in his literary creations. In the “Tell Tale Heart,” it incorporates how the narrator loves an old man, but obsessively wanting him gone due to his frightening eye. Edgar wanted to get along with other men, but never respected them because of their attitude towards Edgar.
At Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross grange, Heathcliff does not fit in. Since he was taken in as a young boy by Mr. Earnshaw, he has been alienated and treated unjustly by almost everyone. One of the characters that resented Heathcliff from the beginning was Hindley.

“I used to be scared of him all the time, he tanned me so much. I reckoned I was scared now, too; but in a minute I see I was mistaken—that is, after the first jolt, as you may say, when my breath sort of hitched, he being so unexpected; but right away after I see I warn 't scared of him worth bothring about,” (Twain, 29). This shows that Huck was frightened of his dad and didn’t want him around. Additionally, he was not that great of a person either, he was a very racist man. Granted, this book takes place in the 1830’s where pretty much everyone in the south was a racist or a slave owner.
Mr. Ballen explains that it is due to a difficult life at home ,and an abusive father that led Ammad to where he is now. Ballen says “ ‘Yet with his father he had a lot of difficulty. In fact, he had one incident where his father hit him, and he felt that because his father hit him, he was going to hell. This drove him into the behavior and this drove him towards - ultimately towards religion, because he wanted to redeem himself, and in essence he wanted to find his father 's love.’ “(Ballen).
His father was abusive and corrupt. Ellis said that he has absolutely no respect for his father because the things he has done in his life and the lack of want to change. He said he would be willing to let his father back into his life if he was willing to change, and he wasn’t. This hurt Ellis even more because he felt like he was a disappointment to his family because at that point, he cut all of his family out of his life. This played a major role in the writing of American Psycho.

His fear of being weak determines his actions in difficult situations, which causes an internal conflict. Eventually, this fear overwhelms Okonkwo, and he commits suicide. Okonkwo’s desire to be masculine in opposition to his father creates an internal conflict established in his fear of being thought weak, which ultimately leads to his death.
Almost more impatient however is my son, Telemachus. He misses his father dearly and is furious at the suitors for disrespecting me as well as Odysseus 's honor in his own home. He said that "the men are eating through all they have, courting his mother, and using his house as if it were theirs to wreck and plunder" (Homer 723). He has left on a mission to find his lost father. I was angry that he went behind my back but even more so, I worry for his safety.

Now that king established the theory of Just and Unjust laws he then explains the difference between a just and unjust law, King says just laws “square with moral law” meaning the law agrees with the law of god. An unjust law is the opposite; the
Since he is talking to an entirely different audience where his religious beliefs may not be in-line theirs, it wouldn’t be ideal to discuss their different beliefs and instead uses Kairos to infuse his argument with logos to convince the audience of the problems with segregation and the necessity to fight for equality. Malcolm X discusses how they don’t have civil rights which were pertinent in the lives of all the audience and allows them to relate to the time and logically leads to supporting his ideas against segregation. Malcolm X denounces the actions of the white population, without any attempts to appeal to them; his approach to the civil rights issue is in complete opposition to the tactics of other civil rights leaders of his time, such as MLK. Rather than trying to integrate the black community into the white, he focused on the complete reconstruction between the two populations: he didn 't want the African-Americans to integrate into the white hotels; he wanted African-Americans to own the hotels. He believed that it was entirely necessary for the black population to break the psychological, cultural, economic, and political dependency of their oppressors.
