Through his grief at the loss of his best friend, the boy whispers to the spirit of his father, “I’ll talk to you everyday... I won’t forget. No matter what” (McCarthy 286). With the use of diction, McCarthy appeals to pathos as he hints to the omnipresent spirit of the man that encompasses the boy’s daily actions. He has come to terms with the fact that he must fight for his own survival and “then he rose and turned and walked back out to the road” (McCarthy 286).
Blood ties can only take you so far, and blood ties don’t nessecarily mean that love will be given. The Dursleys had fed, clothed, and barely sheltered Harry , but they didn’t love him, and they certainly didn’t treat him as if he belonged. Instead,
The juxtaposition in ‘Mid-Term Break,’ in which the family is grieving whilst ‘the baby cooed and laughed’ shows the obliviousness of a child and the change of perspective as he grew old enough for ‘old men’ to be ‘standing up to shake my hand.’ The contrast that Heaney sees as a child and an adult leads him to be reflective and nostalgic towards his childhood, as he changes his voice to that of an adult. In ‘Follower,’ Heaney describes his past, when he ‘was a nuisance,’ comparing the moment to his old and weakened father. In ‘Digging,’ the change of voice makes the poet reflect upon the differences between his father as his guidance and his father’s true self, and thereby decide not to be perfectly equal to his father, arguing that he’ll ‘dig with’ ‘the squat pen’ rather than ‘the spade’ that his father had used. The final line in the poem reflects the poet as an adult who needs to choose his own path in life.
Darrel, or Darry has always wanted to become something amazing in life, but sadly when his parents died in a fatal car crash, he was left to raise his two younger brothers, Sodapop, and Ponyboy. More specifically, Darrel chooses his gang over his potential future to care for his friends but sadly, “. . . Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything.
Norton and I had the same ideas about why the parents sold him, and thought that he was happy. Norton said, “It also serves to absolve them from feelings of guilt as ‘They think they have done me no injury’. Having forced their son into enslavement, teaching him to sing ‘the notes of woe’, the parents then head to church to praise ‘God and his priest and king’, who, the boy tells us, ‘make up a heaven of our misery’. Interestingly, in an earlier draft, Blake wrote that this grim trio ‘wrap themselves up in our misery’, suggesting that they take comfort from the misery of others. The final version is far more powerful; the speaker’s parents collude with Church and State, actively constructing a heaven out of the misery of others, or, as Nicholas Marsh argues, ‘they “make up” a heaven where, in fact, there is “misery”’..”The parents believe that the boy is happy and serving God.
A seventeen-year-old boy’s superficial discontent towards his disabled father’s return from the hospital draws attention towards what is supposed to be the strongest bond: a father-son relationship. Throughout Athol Fugard’s play “Master Harold” … and the boys, Hally tries to suppress his mixed feelings after each call from his mother, who intends to bring his father home. Athol captures Hally’s true sentiments towards his father through two phone calls, initially provoking irrational anger and uncontrollable emotions, but eventually leading to a defeated reveal of truth. The first phone call from Hally’s mother introduces the boy’s bipolar attitude towards his father.

Grant organizes the visit, and even the children themselves give Jefferson gifts. It’s important that Jefferson didn’t realize how many visitors he’d have—Jefferson doesn’t realize how many people love him and defend him. He seems to treat this knowledge as an impetus to behave with even more courage and dignity—thus, he waits to cry until everyone’s left, showing his self-control and selflessness. He is recognizing and embracing his importance to the community. In a way, Jefferson has been building up to this moment throughout A Lesson Before Dying.

My so called "lens" is author's craft. One thing you may notice about my descriptions is they will often contain theme and character development, because, how I view author's craft is how the author sets up the themes and character developments through elements of literature. So, I have to first analyze the metaphors, similes, etc., then describe how those pertain to the theme and characters and finally then relate that to author's craft. William Shakespeare's character Friar Lawrence adds so much to the story, he understands what is happening between Romeo and Juliet, and he tries to help by giving them what they want. He understands just how deep it goes between them and how crazy they are for each other, and just in general.
