The juxtaposition in ‘Mid-Term Break,’ in which the family is grieving whilst ‘the baby cooed and laughed’ shows the obliviousness of a child and the change of perspective as he grew old enough for ‘old men’ to be ‘standing up to shake my hand.’ The contrast that Heaney sees as a child and an adult leads him to be reflective and nostalgic towards his childhood, as he changes his voice to that of an adult. In ‘Follower,’ Heaney describes his past, when he ‘was a nuisance,’ comparing the moment to his old and weakened father. In ‘Digging,’ the change of voice makes the poet reflect upon the differences between his father as his guidance and his father’s true self, and thereby decide not to be perfectly equal to his father, arguing that he’ll ‘dig with’ ‘the squat pen’ rather than ‘the spade’ that his father had used. The final line in the poem reflects the poet as an adult who needs to choose his own path in life.
If asked how is a person’s lifetime spent, numerous people would think of the times devoted to family. They may reflect of the years of gaining an education, or attempting to find a soulmate to spend the rest of their life with. However, we rarely consider the time we spend preparing our body to continue living our lives. Oddly enough, the time we allow our body to recuperate, through sleeping, is where we spend more than a third of our lifetime; this is equivalent to approximately twenty five years cycling through the stages of sleep, yet at some point in time we all have been deprived of some essential hours of shut eye (Altevogt and Harvey). Therefore, people, in today’s society, often complain of being constantly tired, yet many do not understand the stages of sleep and common problems that accompany it.
Since he could no longer complete what he had seen as his life’s purpose, his career, he became stagnant which can be seen through his snarky attitude, obsession with death, and overall anger at the world. He also has an old point of reference, noticeable when Norman discusses cars that were no longer relevant, which contributes to how he seems to be stuck in the past. When Billy Jr. stays with Norman and Ethelle over the summer, it forces Norman to make a few changes. Billy Jr. is decades younger than Norman and by making the adjustment of talking to a young boy with his life ahead of him, Norman begins to see that there are changes he must make to become generative. Stage eight of Erikson’s Developmental Stages consists of Integrity versus Despair.
Alfred Prufrock," T. S. Eliot discovers a man who will not accept his greatest need. The irony of Prufrock rejecting to share himself, shortening his emotional growth, is especially sharp at the end of the poem. Prufrock suddenly states his vision of himself and shows the reader the end results of life in this shell which he has been enclosed in. He dimly states, "I grow old. I grow old."
