Throughout the letter, Adams constructs several comparisons between her son and great men as a way of persuading her son to be the best he can be and make his country proud. Adams emphasizes her son 's advantages, pointing out that he has been "favored with superior advantages under the instructive eye of a tender parent," presumably speaking of her husband, a future United States president. She wants her son 's progression on this voyage to "bear some proportion to [his] advantages," meaning he should mirror the determination of his father in regards to personal challenges.

Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”, seeks to portray the reality hidden beneath the social exterior of the ‘happy American Family’ of the 1950s, and aims to expose the dysfunctional relationships, often concealed behind an outwardly happy marriage. Albee has created a plot where his characters are immersed in peeling the veneers of pretension off one another and where truth and illusion are engaged in a continuous battle. The eponymous jingle, which is repeated many times in the play, is a parody of a children’s ditty and seeks to convey the fear associated with confronting the difference between illusion and reality. The name of the modernist author “Virginia Woolf” replaces the original reference to the big bad wolf as Albee wishes to find out “who’s afraid of living life without illusions” (Flanagan). Being an Absurdist, Albee believed that illusions often generate a false content for a person’s life and hence, should be abandoned ("Edward Albee: Who 's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?").

This also informs of the internal conflict of loved ones such as Krebs mother and even returnee soldiers themselves. The use of the theme of conformity by Hemmingway paints a picture of stark differences that bring out conflicts to the central character Krebs. Readers are also informed by the difficulty of adapting to conflicting social norms such as religion and marriage that most people fit into. Krebs truly knows that he has been traumatized by the war, and even the conformity of family and religion cannot seem to understand that the best way for him to conform is taking no responsibilities and consequences such as those of
