Peter was very critical and had a negative attitude about the fact that his father surrounded himself with Polish friends and did not attempt to meet Australians. Due to this, it provoked the barrier to aggravate which had detrimental impacts on the relationship between them due to them not being able to communicate properly. This stanza establishes that the only way he could feel a sense of belonging is to form relationships with other Polish people as he felt they related to each other. The reason as to why Peter felt this certain way was because he did not comprehend his father 's means of belonging. Throughout the poem, Skrzynecki emphasizes how the barrier had an effect on their relationship as he was distancing himself from him due to the loss of connection between each other.
Eli also knew that Carnegie was the wrong person for the Bible. The voices in his head that first told him to go on his long journey did not specifically tell him where and who to bring the Bible to, so he followed his gut instinct and his faith. Carnegie ended up dying a slow death was an infection in his flesh wound with “his people” attacking him in the end. This is the opposite of how Eli died, which was after he peacefully stated every word from the Bible and was properly
Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.”(Act 2, p.173). John forgets one very important commandment, one should not commit adultery. John Proctor does not go to church because of his shame, he knows he made a mistake, but doesn’t know how to fix it within himself. He loves Elizabeth, but he got on the wrong at one point in his
The Walls kids were raised figuring out how to be free. As a result of their alcoholic father, Rex they didn't have advantages that most other children have.

However, Troy had constantly refused to give him the money, but Rose still gave it to him in the end. Troy believed if he could have a girlfriend and eventually his family, he should be able to get a job and support them. With Cory, he didn’t support him to play college football. Troy didn’t believe they were allowing colored people to play sports at a professional level and didn’t want his son to go through the same disappointment he had gone through when he tried playing baseball on a higher level. The only disapproval Cory had gotten was from his father, which resulted in them having a distant father and son relationship.
Me and my partnered both assumed that when Equality escaped, they didn’t decide to go after him as punishment, because they probably thought he wouldn’t last and would die. We also saw the reference to the Saint of the Pyre a few times which ties back to the man burned at stake for saying the unmentionable word. This book made me and my partner question a lot of things with the society within it because they were going back in time with the technology they had such as a candle instead of advancing. We questioned the society and how it came to be based on collectivism when it used to be based on individualism. Overall, me and my partner really enjoyed this book because it made us think about our society and the social relationships we
Have you ever been so ashamed of who you are associated with, that you push them past their own physical limits for your own good? In the short story, The Scarlet Ibis, by James Hurst makes you think about what is truly from the goodness of the brother character’s heart or if he is just being selfish.

Although Brother has to care for Doodle and teach him how to walk, run, swim, and row, it was only because he was sick of giving all of his personal time to the little disabled boy who could not walk.
This upset Okonkwo who lashed out causing Nwoye to leave and never come back. In the novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Nwoye was able to stand up to his father as a result of two religions colliding. Although they were father and son, Okonkwo and Nwoye were never very close because of how different they were. “Nwoye knew that it was right to be masculine and to be violent, but somehow he still preferred the stories that his mother used to tell…” (Achebe 53). This shows that even though Nwoye didn’t share the same

However, everyone respected and listened to the Friar because of his status with the church. As a priest, it was his job to protect Romeo and Juliet and yet he failed.

No matter how Tommy’s past had been painful, he had no right to punish me for his parents’ neglect. I felt sorry for the baby and child Tommy, but not for Tommy the husband. As a father, he had tried to make amends to his sons. As a husband, he had failed miserably. At last, there was silence, “You must be thinking I am a terrible person?” “It is not for me to judge you.
