Heaney seems to have lost his ideal image of his father as a hero as his fantasy breaks, informing the audience of his father’s true state. In ‘Follower,' such exposure is clearly conveyed in the last three lines of the poem, whereby Heaney comments ‘But today it is my father who keeps stumbling behind me, and will not go away.’ His diction ‘stumbling’ makes the audience infer that Heaney now thinks of his father in a slightly negative way, as he is unsteady and weakened by age. This also creates a parallel image with Heaney himself: when he was younger, he ‘stumbled’ and ‘fell sometimes.’ The similarity created between a toddler and his father shows what Heaney sees in his father: someone who is feeble and old.
He resembled his father in many aspects, physically and mentally although this comes into question. He questioned the link between father and son. “My mother says that I am his son, though I myself have no knowledge of it – what man can be sure of his percentage?” (Odyssey ,page 32 line 215-216) this creates a mystery between the years lost and makes one wonder where was Odysseus ? This shows that he himself did not proclaim his father as his own through this stage of his life, this can be seen as a sign of his youthful nature.
Hamlet dies of wounds from the poisoned tipped sword Laertes used. ". Hamlet was deeply sorrowed by his father 's death. He spoke to a ghost, and this ghost stated that his father 's death was a murder, by the hand of his uncle, Claudius. " The serpent that did sting thy father 's life now wears his crown. " Hamlet was astonished, and then swore vengeance for his father 's death.
Also, in line two, “the curlew calls” (Longfellow 2) as the evening is beginning to darken. The reader can infer from this line that the bird is saying “goodbye,” which is a form of foreshadowing. This sets the scene that it is the end, the end to a life that will still go on, as life just goes on. Additionally, while some scenes may seem morose and dismal, others are gentle and peaceful, just like the beginning of a new life. As an example, in the last stanza, “The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls” (Longfellow 11).
He is thought to be lazy and weak and does not live up to the expectations that his father has for him as his oldest son. Okonkwo’s biggest problem with his son is that he is reminiscent of Okonkwo’s father. After the arrival of Ikemefuna, Okonkwo began to see positive changes in his son. He began to adopt more manly attitudes giving Okonkwo hope for him. “He wanted Nwoye to grow into tough young man capable of ruling his father’s household when he was dead and gone to join the ancestors” (52).
He has reached a stage that people in his family can not comprehend. They begin to “ look at him different” ( 82 Kafka). He is now on the journey to find the truth.

In the excerpt from Father by Alice Walker it states, “I regret most about my relationship with my father is that it did not improve... I’d like to tell him how hard I am working to understand.” This demonstrates how afterwards when Alice grew up she understood her father’s relation and wanted to change it for the better. For example, page 225, paragraph 3, of The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini it states, “Now, fifteen years after I’d buried him, I was learning that Baba had been a thief… from me the right to know I had a brother.” This highlights that Amir finally understood his father’s action through the years and accepted his father for what he kept hidden.
"He gave Herdred all his support, offering an open heart where Higlac's young son could see wisdom he still lacked himself: warmth and goodwill were what Beowulf brought his new king. " This shows Beowulf's loyalty to Higlac his late King, and to his family. Beowulf would not be dishonorable by taking what wasn't rightfully his; he would rather stand by Higlac's son and teach him all he knows. Beowulf is the hero to his King's son and country, by staying loyal and having honor.
Wake up, they’re going to throw you out the side!” (pg 99) shows the reader that midway through the story Elie still really cared about his father and did not want him to die. He still had hope that his dad could survive. However, this quote at the end of the story, “I no longer thought of my father,” (pg 113) showed that he lost all hope and only thought about himself and his own health due to the circumstances. Also, Elie was not the only son going through
This quote significantly impacts the novel as it adds character development and contributes majorly to the plot. During the time the head of the block strictly explains that Eliezer can only keep himself alive, and his father is weighing him down. Despite this Eliezer refuses the harsh reality and shares his rations with him to hopefully keep him alive. The doctors simply want Eliezer 's father to die, but Eliezer refuses to give up his father. The head of the block is attempting to bring Eliezer to reality, by harshly telling him that his father’s death is inevitable, and that Eliezer should focus on keeping himself alive instead.
At first, the author creates a jovial tone when Sparks reminisces about his childhood. For example, Sparks illustrated a comical image when his naked father “waves his arms, spun in circles” and chanted as an attempt to bar the chance of an earthquake occurring again. (Sparks 38). In addition, Sparks creates whimsical tone when he refers to his childhood adventures such as the time when Sparks and his brother pretended to be a knight in order to protect the princess who was his sister. However, the joyful tone transitions into a somber tone when Sparks faces the loss of an important life for the first time.
There he found somethings so unaltered from how he recalled that he began to fantasize that nothing had changes and that he was his father, but also his son, resulting in an identity crisis. “I began to sustain the illusion that he was I, and therefore... that I was my father... I looked at the boy... and it was my hands that held his rod...
