Yang Kwija’s “Cold Water Pass” is another work by him that does not conform to the ideals of utility by showing how a family is negatively affected by the state of their society rather than showing how the majority is prospering. “Cold Water Pass” follows the story of a family in which the father died and left them with a lot of debt and had to be taken care of by their older brother despite their financial difficulties. During this story when their mother was talking about their struggles, she said that “’Weren’t for your big brother, we would have starved.’ Mother often recalled her eldest son’s labors, and it was true. Like a cloud drifting in the sky, Father cared only for otherworldly things and died suddenly, leaving behind intense poverty,
Holden has a mother and a father who appreciate him but disagree with his actions. Holden has a sister named Phebe and a brother named D.B. Unfortunately Holden had a brother named Allie who had died from leukemia. I believe Holden is a troubled teen because of his brothers death, maybe if things were different, his problems with his interactions with others wouldn't bother him as much as it does. Throughout the story I could notice the problems Holden has with not only the interactions with people but the environment because he has problems with people that are fake and in the story Holden always calls them, “Phonies”.
One example is when Melinda states, “I stumble from thornbush to thornbush- my mother and father who hate each other, Rachel who hates me, a school that gags on me…” (pg. 125). Melinda feels as though she is trapped in thorn bushes because everywhere she retreats to she is an awful position. As a result, Melinda is miserable and constantly mopes around. Another way Anderson incorporates a metaphor to present Melinda’s low emotional health is when Melinda says, “There is a beast in my gut, I can hear it scraping away at the inside of my ribs.
Gurov “begun being unfaithful to his wife long ago-had been unfaithful to her often” (Chekhov 540). He seem not to care if infidelity would be the cause of his children growing up in a broken home and in many cases children feel they are to blame for the divorce. People can be unfaithful to their partner for several types of reasons. Jeanfreau, Michelle, et al. suggested in the article "Risk Factors Associated with Women's Marital Infidelity," that “women
She said that when she “was so young”, she “heard (her father) cry every night in (his) sleep”. Though the song does not delve much about Kelly’s feelings, I believe that seeing her father in that state and not being able to help him, must have been very heart breaking for her since Kelly sang afterwards “You should have known; better than to lean on me”. This hints that she deems herself incapable of offering sufficient moral support for her father, eventually “(watching) (him) die”. This is very similar in Lena’s case, where Ying-Ying plays the part of the ‘depressed parent’ where she repeatedly shouted accusations at herself for not preventing the death of Lena’s little brother. However, Lena could not bear to let her father know what Ying-Ying said, and translated the accusations differently in English.
These words connote happiness and the innocence and softness of the lamb, almost as if it was describing a young child or baby. The final contrast between “The Tyger and “The Lamb” is the symbol that the tiger and the lamb represent. When you think of a tiger, you might feel fearful of it, along with other emotions. Blake noted that, in line 4, the tiger has a “fearful symmetry”. This line, along with the fact the the book this poem was called the Songs of Experience and the feeling the symbol of a tiger expresses toward the reader,
How does the death of a friend affect the survivors?Well, What i think it affects someone is with depression.What i think causes depression is being unable to forgive yourself and not being able to look forward to the future.People who feel lost don’t know that you try to help them so they push you away thinking that you would bring up the tragedy.In the novel “Tears Of A Tiger” It shows a kid who suffers these effects and struggles to keep his life as normal as it can be.Andy the protagonist became part of a drunk driving accident along with three of his closest friends,and Andy feels so much pain because his closest friend Robert dies in the accident.Andy doesn’t know how to let go of the pain he feels and he becomes depressed. Andy can’t sleep or feel comfortable anymore because everything reminds him of Robert in the story there’s a quote that shows it “Christmas...Well, Christmas was kinda rough.Me and Rob used to hang out in the malls during the holidays, checkin’ out stuff that cost too much and pretendin’ to be interested in buyin’ it.”This also explains that Andy gets reminded of the catastrophe, and reminding himself makes him a lot more depressed and sorrowful.Andy
Furthermore, the dire consequences of a lack of understanding in father-son relationships are illustrated through the self harm inflicted by both Neil in the Dead Poets Society and Haimon in Antigone. Following their parents’ lack of understanding regarding their emotional states, both Haimon and Neil commit suicide to escape the pain of their lives (Sophocles 239; Schulman). Neil and Haimon are both going through difficult times in their lives, as they both are growing into young adults and are in need of guidance; however, their parents’ inability to give them the support that they need leads to their ultimate downfall. The emotional pain that Neil feels over his parents’ lack of understanding regarding his love of acting, and the pain that Haimon feels over Creon not wanting him to be with Antigone leads both of them to feel as though they can never truly fit in or be happy in their own
For Bundy, finding out that the woman who he believed to be his sister growing up was his mother was negative stimuli cognitively. He was in a sense hidden and probably felt a tinge of shame and rejection from his own mother. Bundy is known to have stated that his grandfather was a man that he respected and looked up to. At a very young age, Ted was ripped away from his beloved grandfather and thusly experienced the removal of positive stimuli. Ted experienced the third source of strain, shortcomings, when Stephanie Brooks rejected him and their college relationship.
Holden Caulfield has often been depicted as rebel against the norms of 1950s American society by the readers of The Catcher in the Rye because of his desire to escape society and by rejecting the ideal of the American dream that societal institutions attempt to instill within him. However, throughout J. D. Salinger 's novel, the 16 year old’s anguish and actions reflect that he is still coming to terms with the death of his younger brother, Allie. Due to his grief, Holden is someone who cares more about assisting and protecting children and because of this, resists considering his own place within society and the process of becoming an adult. Through Holden’s recollections of his deceased brother, his interactions with children, and how he changes when interacting with his younger sister, it is evident that Holden wrestles with the expectations placed on him to grow up because he wishes to retain and preserve childhood innocence within others to cope with his grief. Holden, who has been consistently disdainful of the ‘phonies’ in his family like D.B.
Gradually as, Tom lives his life he see how his parents’ approval came with a cost. When Tom finally had it with himself for killing his sister by accident, he thought of committing suicide, but the thought of,” ….Liza’s disapproval. She could make anyone suffer if she disapproved” (Steinbeck 408). Just the thought of his mother reminds him of the days how his mother can disapprove of him causing him great pain. The same pain that it took him to get an approval from her is the pain that he has to face with the consequences of his actions.
