You then start seeing Hollings traits of paranoia about Mrs. Baker and her assassination plot. You also see Holling dissatisfaction with his life when he feels like he needs to have guts against Doug Switetick’s brother who was charging towards him. You could also call Holling immature due to the fact that he insults Meryl Lee for no reason. The story continues and some small events happen but then occasionally big events happen. My first big event would be when he has to clean the chalk boards and gets a cream puff out of it.

Odysseus is also a horrible father: Odysseus is absent from Telemachus’ life from birth, and when he does return, he manipulates his son for his benefit of his massive revenge scheme. Even after using his son, he still has competitiveness with him; he didn't let Telemachus shoot the arrow that would have led to Telemachus’ glory and a boost in self-confidence. There is also a connotation that Odysseus has a seed of doubt that a situation similar to Oedipus and Epicaste would happen to him because when he met Epicaste, her situation was described as “she shared in a monstrosity: she married her son. And she wed him after he killed his father”. The fact that Oedipus and Epicaste get married after he killed his father, Odysseus is probably worried that the same might happen to him.
