The reason he doesn’t tell his mom about the affair is because he wants his father to like him in part and in part because maybe he does not want to see his family split and to see his mom suffer.

He did all this because he didn’t want his crew to back out so he could get home. People argue that if Odysseus was loyal to his wife then he must’ve been a loyal leader because he protected his men. Being loyal to his wife doesn’t prove his loyalty towards his crew. He was a selfish, an unreliable, and an impulsive leader. Odysseus wasn’t a reliable leader for his crew because he wasn’t honest.
He seems like he wants to impose his views on others because he thinks he is right, and when people do not completely agree, he cuts them out of his life. His stubbornness and withdrawal caused his family a lot of pain and worry. Even though he is kind to many people, I think he is inherently selfish to the point of being
The journey of Odysseus was a long and grueling time, but his love for Penelope was strong enough to get him home to her. He faced many trials on his journey home, facing many foes and many temptations. He was not alone on his journey, he was accompanied by his men, who fought with him during the Trojan war. Would his fellow soldiers endure? The journey of Odysseus began at the end of the Trojan war, when he tried to make it to Penelope in his home, Ithica.
Odysseus have to show restraint because he comes back but he has to go as a beager to find out who is being good and who is being bad because he don’t want to kill someone that is being good and he has to see if his wife has been loyal and is waiting on him to return home so if he didn’t show restraint then he might blow his
Edmund is feeling lonely and confused in the position where he is right now. He feels like he should not allow his fate giving by the gods to dictate the course of his life. He does not want to feel oppressed from obtaining that which he desires because he is as well rounded and as good as his brother Edgar, the legitimate son. In the second way of performing this monologue, Edmund will be having a low pitch because it will demonstrate a lack of enthusiasm which reflects back to Edmund feeling lonely and confused. Edmund says, “[…] my mind as generous, and my shape as true, as honest madam’s issue?
His parents don’t like the idea that he follows different religions and even don’t like to talk about it. It’s as if he has disappointed them. I feel sympathy because who hasn’t ever disappointed someone close to them. Even small things we have done we seem goofy or even weird in front of people, this is how Pi is seen described by his parents. I feel sad for Pi.

To the woman, this may seem like the action of a heartless person. What she does not realize is that it may be her husband’s way of expressing love for his son. It leads her to think that death brings out the worst in people - not only was her marriage failing but she also realized many more differences between her and the man. She also likely despises death for taking her son. Other than losing his soul, she also had to lose him to the soil and the earth.

When McCandless returned home his parents expressed their fears about his dangerous, daunting trips. Although he knew the dangerous situations he was putting himself through, he didn’t want to back down to his parents, “he wanted to prove to himself that he could make it on his own, without anybody else’s help” (178).
