The earliest of his internal conflicts is when his mother married his uncle, Claudius, in such a short window of time after his father’s death. He expresses his feeling in his “heart, for I must hold my tongue” (1.2.160). This is an important quote because it is important to understand because it allows to the reader to see that Hamlet cannot speak to anyone about how he feels. As an effect to his decision of not speaking out, this allowed for rage and discomfort to grow inside him which will be one of the main reasons as to why he is legitimately going insane. With these various stressors in his life, it gives more evidence and reasoning to why he often experienced constant signs of depression and suicidal thoughts.
However, the faith he is standing with, endangers him, making his home confused. Luke says that he knows that trials are coming and that it is the faith that he upholds that is bringing him trials, “I knew that life would try me.” (Dubus 16). It seems he lost his family because of hate. Paul is trying to figure out the best way he could have tried to save the family. “A Father’s Story,” at different points, portrays Luke Ripley as the antagonist and the protagonist
Death, especially of a close family member or friend, can cause one to lose hope. Death could include a loss of a loved one, a loss of oneself, or a loss of a passion. In The Things They Carried, Tim O’Brien reveals the significance of death each soldier must come to terms with and the impact that death has on them, their character, and their actions. Each soldier carries objects that represent who they are, what they long for, and what they love. This is what remains constant for the boys in a world of war and death.
her father went through a lot, he lost his brothers to the comrades that followed after the dictator and after the fear they created that followed him. To him his brothers blood is on his hands and that is an image and feeling that no one can ever erase. Her father feared anyone in uniforms which is reasonable after everything he been through. As crazy as it may be, fear is what actually helped him adapt. Fear helped him because it allowed him to realize the difference between the two countries especially since he been trying to protect his family and watching his wife and children grow since being in
With that said, there is not right, or wrong way be a man, even though these characters say that there are wrong ways to be a man. Once Macduff hears about the murder of his family, he is devastated. Malcolm begins to tell him to use this anger and despair for his family as motivation, "Dispute it like a man" (IV, iii, 220). Macduff then replies with that he must also feel the despair like a man and take a second to embrace the anger, "I shall do so, But I must also feel it like a man. I cannot but remember such things were that were most precious to me" (IV, iii, 221-223).
Death comes to us all, though we try not to acknowledge this fact. In reality, we are surrounded by life and death constantly as they are the fundamental states of being and non-being to existence as we are capable of perceiving it. Steve Martin’s essay “The Death of My Father” is about far more than his father’s death, as Martin takes great care in using his dysfunctional relationship with his father to illustrate how his imminent demise not only brought his family together but also enabled him to understand the motivations behind his father’s often callous and belligerent behaviour. Virgina Woolf’s essay “The Death of a Moth” engages with the ubiquity of death as the universal experience of all things that live, and the strangeness of life
It’s easy to notice that Pi is hesitating, he is afraid to tell the truth. All his saying to Mr. Chiba and Mr. Okamoto before is about the animal, the imaginary version of the truth. Pi clearly knows, if he tells the truth, the two guys in front of him, the father waiting in the church, the pandit, the imam will be disappointed about Pi’s killing, anger and fear. Seriously, he will be banned in all three religions and Pi betrays them and he will never be the follower of any of them. Pi used to be a good prayer, he was kind to people, he loved animals and all living things.
However, as each has “no way of knowing/their motives”, they “will never know their household gods”, representing one another have been, “are slain”. Ultimately, Hobsbaum uses the “household gods” as a metaphor for how each partner is feeling. Conveying the negative change in their emotions, their lack of understanding for one another and the various ways in which their lives are changed.

Davies asks why this would affect Ammad in such a way and then explains that is because of their culture. “‘...in that belief system, a father 's approval is the most important fact of your life. Your being revolves around it. And so for him to think that his father hated him or didn 't approve of him made him think he was going to hell, and hell to him was a very literal place...So the idea of going to jihad to redeem himself, to find his father 's love, if you will, was a very powerful motivation.’” What Mr. Ballen is saying is that, because of this abuse from his father, Ammad felt he had to get his father’s love in any way possible, and in his culture the approval from one’s father is extremely crucial to having a good life. But because of these beatings, he turned to religion to find that love that he never got from his father.
The strong mind collapses at the end and struggled, butt children and wife urged him on. Peyton Farquhar knows the death is inevitable, and he sees what he wishes. The most important lesson that I learn from this story is, perhaps the spirit and thirst of wanting to live, Peyton, however, with a short glimpse it satisfied his last dream and his body, swung gently from side to side beneath the bridge. By accepting the character who could have live comfortable with his family ending up become the victim of this Civil war between North and South.
