Eventually, his attachment starts to stem from his need for a parental figure because of his negative feelings towards his parents. For instance, upon hearing the news of his parents’ death, Dunstable is relived and “mean-spiritedly pleased” over the loss, showing that, similar to Paul, he has no affection towards his parents (74). However, Dunstable does not only feel detachment towards his parents, but towards his life. Likewise, aside from his obsession with Mary, Dunstable is indifferent towards his life and the people around
Some readers might brush him off as a religious fanatic and a cruel, domineering father; others might identify with his struggle to raise his son how he thinks best. Some might be moved by Reb Saunders’s tears of apology; others might think that he abused Danny and that his apology could not possibly make up for it. Like Reuven, nobody is quite sure just how to feel about Reb Saunders by the end of the novel, which is actually a good thing in a different angle. It meant that The Chosen had accomplished a big goal. It enabled the readers to see beyond the surface of things and people, into deeper meanings.
The reader may also infer that the mother she may think the father is a bad influence on her son. I think this because of how different the father and son act. The father is a rule-breaker and does not plan ahead well while the son does not like to break rules and always plans ahead. Although not much information is told about the mother, you can predict that she would have been very angry if her son had been brought home any later than Christmas eve. You can predict this because when the father wasn’t allowed to drive through the snow he stated, “Your mother will never forgive me for this,” (Wolff 34).
Here, Walls and her father see differently. Walls told her father about this situation so that he could address it, but instead he made up an excuse for what really happened when he was not in the room with his daughter and his acquaintance. Personally, the Walls’ parents are too worried about themselves. Instead of making money to support their kids, the parents spend money on other things like art supplies for the mom, and alcohol for the dad. Like shown in the evidence above, Walls’ parents don’t show much care or worry for specifically Jeannette, but also the other kids.
She is also upset because Walter is giving in to racial tension and calling Mr. Lindner back to negotiate taking money in exchange for not moving into the white neighborhood. Lena immediately snaps back and calls out Beneatha for not learning to care for her brother. In this scene Lena’s maternal instinct really shines through. Even though she is disappointed in Walters foolishness and lack of pride, she knows that Walter is at his lowest point and that persecution and ridicule will not help the situation in any way. She also understands that his pursuit of money wasn't for self interest but to make things better for the whole family.
Due to the pleading of his crew, this shows that Odysseus is inconsiderate because they could have easily died and left their families behind. This also shows that he is inconsiderate because if someone is a good leader, they usually listen to other inputs and act according to that, but Odysseus was headstrong and wanted to continue the taunting. The next time that Odysseus shows that he is inconsiderate is their stay at Circe’s land. The crew members have families at home which they want to see once again, but Odysseus is reluctant to
At the beginning, Paul’s parents did not see that paul already hated his brother and keep secrets about what he did will not change that. Paul sees this and confronts his parents, “He shock his head sadly. ‘We wanted to find a way to keep you from always hating your brother.’ I answered, ‘So you figured it would be better if I hated myself?’” (265) Paul sees his parents for who they really are and how they are blind to the reality of their family and Erik’s actions. Paul’s parents wanted to keep paul from hating Erik and make him seem like he was perfect, but in all, lying just made Paul hate himself and think of himself as a freak and stupid. Now that Paul sees and understands what the truth is about what happened to his eyes he doesn’t think of himself as a freak or as Eclipse Boy.
Addie Bundren is going to die?” to make him accept the fact that their mother will not live for much longer (Faulkner 40). Darl is seen as being atypical because he does not mourn, or pretend to mourn, as the rest of his family does. His words may come off as being a sadistic joke in light of his mother’s ill health, but he actually wishes to tell Jewel here that the situation will not change. Darl’s cognizance of Addie’s death when he is not near her is a sign of his attachment to Addie. He cares for his mother and for his brother.
What kind of man was he going to grow up into? (25-26)” It’s clear that Rufus’s parents’ two opposite approaches to raising him are conflicting and damaging, resulting in Rufus getting the wrong message as to how he is allowed to behave. While Rufus’s mother gives him all he wants regardless of his poor behavior, his father on the other hand neglects him and resorts to violence to discipline him. The use of violence and sense of entitlement build up in him and worsen as he ages. Dana makes the observation that “Tom Weylin had probably marked his son more than he knew with that whip (39).” Dana is aware that Tom Weylin punishes his son, similarly to slaves, by whipping.
They both wanted to survive, but they did not know how. They were scared that something might happen if they tried to escape, they constantly thought of the worst scenario possible. The man that had a daughter was scared that something might happen to him, because he did not want his daughter to live without a father, and he was scared that something was going to happen to him because he did not want her to die so young. In the poem the man kept telling his daughter that “it 's okay” when awful thoughts were running through his mind, he was still trying to maintain a positive attitude so his daughter would be okay. On the other hand Billy never kept the same positive attitude that the other man did, instead he always wanted death, he would leave his group, he would ask them to leave him alone so he could die.
Her male peers and town members notice, as does her step father Raymond. Though he may not want to feel attracted to her, he does, and he does not do a very good job at hiding it. Anne looks at her with what she calls “wanting eyes.” While it is entirely disturbing that Raymond would look at his step daughter in such a way, he also blames her for looking the

SECRETS Portia, Brutus’s wife, wanted to know Brutus’s secret for many worthy reasons. Portia cares about her husband and his well being and wants to know what is troubling him, offer her help.

Couples should be best friends and not hide things from each other because then there is no trust in the relationship.
