Like a sudden wild fire, the pain exploded through his leg and up into his gut” (89, Kingsbury).

The universal theme is very important to the text. What the universal theme is, basically a theme that appears over and over again.

When you and mamma get old, I’ll feed you out of this wooden dish.” (lines 16-17) This was the moment that the little grandson’s parent realized just how badly they’ve been treating his grandfather, basically the climax of the folktale The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson retold by Leo Tolstoy.
When it comes to his family, Jason aligns his ideals with and draws his inspiration almost entirely from his mother and Julia. While certain scenes present the father in a tolerable light, the chapter ‘Souvenirs’ stands as a symbol for the discourse in their father-son relationship. Jason’s dad is actually far to similar to his son, as shown by the quickness with which he shirked from an altercation with his boss, to serve as a proper role model. In the later half of that same chapter, however, Jason recounts “I had no idea mom could be so bulletproof”(193) when depicting how she stood up to the spoiled, highschool thieves. Far more than just a juxtaposition to the father’s frailness, the mother’s action serve as an idealized metaphor for Jason’s own struggles.

However, his use of tough love and lack of approval towards his children creates conflict in the play, which suggests the importance of a father’s emotional role in a family. The role as a breadwinner: In Troy’s mind, he has done everything right as a father because he has provided his family with basic needs for survival: a place to live, food on the table, and clothes on their backs. His strong work ethic has made him the man he is today; but he often burns all his fuel at work and, at the expense of his family, copes with his pain by drinking. Sense of pride: As the breadwinner, Troy takes great pride in his earnings. When his oldest son, Lyons, comes around asking for ten dollars, Troy replies by saying,“ ‘I 'm just supposed to haul people 's rubbish and give my money to you cause you too lazy to work?’ ” (1, 19).
When the author was younger, he would get up and see his father get up early on a Sunday morning, warm the house, and shine the son’s shoes, but he didn’t quite realize that his father is doing this out of love until he got older. In Sharon Old’s poem, the mother had trouble letting go of her daughter and seeing her grow up so fast, because to her, the daughter was still like a baby to her and she was not ready to let her go to become independent and maturing to be a older and responsible woman. She was also afraid of losing her responsibilities as a mother and a parent. The relationships between parents and children can ultimately lead to acceptance at the end. For example in the poem “ The Possessive, the mother accepted that her daughter is growing up.

The role of men in the Victorian Era was to be the provider for his wife and kids. Another role was to teach the son all he has to recognize for adulthood. He would teach him this so he can get married and have kids, and to receive a proper job, a decent house, and so he can be a wonderful future provider for his impending family. Another role is to be the protector of his family. If someone breaks into the house he is not going to send in his wife or kids to try to defend him and his equipment, but instead he will push out there and defend his wife and kids from the burglar against each threat to his family even if he has to risk his own life in the process.

The poem starts with “Sundays too my father got up early” (1), wherein “too” holds a whole lot of significance because it shows us that the father regularly wakes up early to work on weekdays, however he must also do so on Sundays, which in reality should be a day of rest. Furthermore, he wakes up in the most uncomfortable of environments - an environment that is “blueback cold”, which clearly gives us a visual image of the coldness - and, regardless of his skin-cracked hands, he stirs banked fires into flame, so that he can make the arising of the rest of his family less uncomfortable than it had been for him. Then the author writes, “No one ever thanked him”(5); although the father would sacrifice himself to wake up early and turn on a fire, no one ever showed any type of gratitude. In this phrase it also seems as if the speaker shows some sort of remorse for not thanking him when he was younger, which is shown by the punctuation and by the past tense, which show a very specific kind of tone. In the second stanza, the coldness of the room is reinforced by “cold splintering, breaking” (6); by saying that the cold is splintering and breaking, the speaker is making the image audible for us.
A leading justification of why Linda presumes Biff has the ability to save Willy’s life is due to the two men’s prior relationship. Preceding Boston, Biff idolized his father who in return propped Biff on a pedestal. A direct correlation of Willy’s self-worth is matched with Biff’s success. Near the end of high school Biff began to strive to please his father carrying his father’s pride on his shoulders “This Saturday Pop, this Saturday- just for you, I’m going to break through for a touchdown.” Biff warrants his father’s approval because of the pride his father exudes. The father-son relationship is the bond Linda hopes is strong enough to save Willy.
