Of course, his actions do not resemble the behavior of a virtues man, but Don does not care what a decent man supposed to do. This attitude chose in the essence of all of his decisions. Consider, for instance, how he was ready to abandon his wife for and young 21-year-old woman, knowing that he would be leaving his kids in a broken family. At the same time, it does not seem that he did not love them. However, as true existentialist, he was acting according to what seems right for
And now Kendyll is alone, by himself because he has no one to look up to, no father figure, no mother figure. He only has himself and the people that look over him and they treat him like a butler. His caretakers like to make a mess of things and morph the truth from the reality. He wants to get out of this life and the only way he can get out of it is spilling his emotions to someone but he doesn’t like how he needs other people to help him with his problems, so he holds his emotions in and let the waves of emotion change him. But nobody knows that he’s going through that because people think of him as another street kid that has it easy because of what he’s wearing.

Nwoye avoided to be alone with his father out of fear, while Okonkwo grieved over his deed. “Okonkwo did not answer. But he left hold of Nwoye, who walked away and never returned.” (Achebe, 152).

Claiming that he never truly did love her and proving that her father was right about him, “You should not have believ’d me, for virtue cannot/ so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it/ i lov’d you not.” (3.1.117-19) Hamlet’s motives for doing this could be to keep Ophelia out of everything and to not bring her anymore pain if anything was to happen to him as he went through with his plans. It could also be that he is still acting out as the anger/sadden son and that he needs to keep up with the act of seeming crazy to the onlookers. This action also connects to multiple other hasty and rash doings by hamlet that in a way is cutting of ties to his “old life” before he was visited by his father’s ghost and that thinking to himself, that if he’s going to succeed after everything he’s already done, he’ll need to cut ties to anybody that he could at one point had attachments to.

At the same time saying that they shall “relish” in the memories which mean bring great joy to themselves thinking about how much

But unfortunately this act not only takes his life but it also takes away the respect of Umuofia for
His father was abusive and corrupt. Ellis said that he has absolutely no respect for his father because the things he has done in his life and the lack of want to change. He said he would be willing to let his father back into his life if he was willing to change, and he wasn’t. This hurt Ellis even more because he felt like he was a disappointment to his family because at that point, he cut all of his family out of his life. This played a major role in the writing of American Psycho.
