He recalls several times the death of their son and their inability to talk about it, but also feels fortunate that their marriage had survived it. Not speaking of it has also become a battle in his mind. Shiloh is what the entire story is about, the important battles.

This was because she loved him and was waiting for him to come back, she wanted to be near him, to meet him again. Bradbury probably used this theme to help the ones who lost a loved one. This will calm them more because they’ll realize that their loved one is always with them, alive deep inside their heart. A loved one never dies because they are loved by someone and exists in someone’s memory. As long as someone remembers you, and has memories you can never die.

When he tells his wife that he still has faith in their marriage, and to go see the pastor to talk about their situation the wife turns him down telling him “I don’t love you anymore”. This hurts Mr. Redd tremendously leaving him with bitterness that took over his life. This kept him away from starting a new relationship with the pharmacist in his town because he remembered all the pain he felt with his wife’s betrayal. The last actor who experienced PTSD, which was a part of anxiety was Ronnie Morgan. He was in the National Guard, and left his girlfriend Rae behind to serve his country.
The relationship in the film is between Edward and William Bloom who relationship has not been so easy due to William getting tired of the stories his father constantly tells to him and others. Not until the end of the film is where William finds out that the stories his father has been telling contain some type of truth in them and that his stories were a way to keep his life immortal. This theme is enjoyable as well because it also feeds the question to the audience whether or not a person truly knows their parent. Even if the relationship is good, does a child ever truly know their parent? Big Fish forces this question into the viewer’s
First, love is able to comfort many characters in times of doubt. Throughout the book, Lucie worries about her father, but he always reassures her that he is well. For instance, Lucie worries that her father might not be happy about her marriage to Charles Darnay.

When Calypso is asking Odysseus why he doesn’t love her, he responds with,”’Nevertheless I long-I pine, all my days-to travel home and see the dawn of my return,’” (Odysseus/page 159/lines 242-243). This quote proves that Odysseus’ love for Penelope is a main part of what drives him to return to Ithaca. Had Penelope been dead or non existent, Odysseus may have not wanted to return home. When Odysseus is talking to Penelope as a beggar, he tells her,”’I have heard that Odysseus now, at last, is on his way…’” (Odysseus/page 399/line 310). Odysseus tells this to Penelope to see if she is still in love with him.
In “The Odyssey” written by Homer, Odysseus has fought big creatures that you have never thought you would ever hear about, but the only real thing he cares about, is his wife, Penelope. Even after twenty years, Odysseus has never forgotten about Penelope. Odysseus may have made poor decisions, yet he was always loyal, trustworthy, and strong-hearted when it came to his wife Penelope. Odysseus made several wrong decisions in his travels after the Trojan War. Odysseus was loyal to a certain point, but if a Goddess asked you to do something you should act on it or something bad could potentially happen to you or a loved one.
Odysseus’ relationship with Circe keeps him from returning home because he stays there for a year. Odysseus says “So she enticed and won our battle-hardened spirits over.” (245:10: 513-514) While Odysseus is there, he is so enamored with Circe that he forgets about the home he loves so much, and the son and wife who he had left behind. Similar to the situation with Calypso, Odysseus is lured to spend time with Circe even though he focused on returning home otherwise. This shows that Odysseus may be a lot more fake than he lets on because for all his talk of wanted to return home he spent a year on Circe’s island not making an effort to return to his homeland. Maybe the real reason that he is always saying that he wants to go home despite the way he acts is because he is telling this story to the people that he hopes will bring him back to Ithaca so he is trying to extract pity from them even if he isn’t as
