Here is a example of the theme from the book “He barely liked his family-and by family he meant his older brother. Tom.” The conflict is that Benny and Tom do not have a good relationship and have grudges against each other. If you hold grudges against your family or do not have a good relationship with your family, you will have no one to fall back on and you will be by yourself. Another example of the theme from the book is “Sorry, Benny- I forgot. Point is, you got family of some kind, right?” This example shows that you will always have some type of family, even if you don’t know
This is important because he wants to protect his family. His father said “You cannot know the fear”(pg 109). Terry’s father does not want his son to know the fear that he went through, he had to hide under half of his friends body to survive. That shows us just some of the things that happen during war.
In this quote,the author says that if the father does not what to give all his money to his son when he is dead because he might not know to take care of it.This quote includes an example of, his father dies he get to keep it and take care of it as long as he lives and if he loses it he get to died or something like that. Both deal with the child getting punished if he does not respect his
His mother Gertrude then remarried to Claudius. Gertrude failed Hamlet as a mother by choosing to ignore his problems. Hamlet could have grieved properly and not have been tempted to murder if society at the time had been more accepting of men’s emotional health. It was Hamlet’s support system and society that had failed him, he was definitely justified to act hysterically. Although Ophelia had the best intentions, she abandoned Hamlet when he needed support and obeyed her father instead.
Another way familial corruption is caused by the absence of fathers is portrayed by Shakespeare and Williams is through the characterization of the family members left behind. In The Glass Menagerie, Amanda Wingfield lives in the shadow of her past and is obsessed with the idea of gentlemen callers for her daughter. This concern for her daughter is rooted more in Amanda’s own interest, however, and has a detrimental effect on their relationship. “Once we analyse how Amanda manipulates maternity, a factor more fundamental than nostalgia will begin to emerge. This principle is self-consciousness.” (Levy).
Levin does not even know how he feels about his own son, due to the pain he caused his wife while coming into the world. However, Levin was able to clear up his feelings when he finds out his wife and baby son are stuck in a storm and he thought they were dead. Kitty, his wife, was able to address his feelings by saying “‘Well, I’m glad you’re beginning to love him,’” (Tolstoy et al. 814). In addition to Levin’s conflicting feelings, there’s also Dolly’s struggle to stay with Stiva for her kids after Stiva reveals his infidelity.
Surely, only an opposing, selfish, and insensitive person could send their wife and child away upon realizing that they both were mixed race. In Kate Chopin’s “Desiree’s Baby”, however, protagonist, Desiree, is altered over just a few days as she goes from being thankful from the happiness of her husband and baby into saddened and betrayed by her lover. The story eventfully shows how racism and denial both play a part in the way the future may turn out. From the time that the story begins, one can see that the love between Armand and Desiree is what they say to be a dream come true. It’s the love that everyone asks for.
Such an attempt however turns out to be quite unsuccessful since in escaping, the sons are ultimately taking refuge in the same misremembered past that drove their father on the verge of despair. That is what Shepard shows in his last family play The Late Henry Moss(2000).In this play, the character/son is represented by Ray. Much like Vince in Buried Child, Ray, having been away from the family/patriarch only gets pulled back into the vortex of the family. Ray actually returns as a composed and non-violent person whose initial want, to take care of the family and return back to civilized life, transforms him into acting out the violence and alcoholism of the patriarch. Ray has arrived just because he has been informed that his father has died.
Elizabeth’s quick judgment of Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham causes her and her family pain, Mr. Wickham’s villainous actions and their effects on Elizabeth Bennet reveal how faulty first impressions can be, and how she could have prevented some heartache if she had been less judgmental.

In reading, it can be also found that Bartleby 's life and that of the woman are very impersonal, but Bartleby 's is more since the woman, at least, the woman tries to communicate with her son and her husband in order to solve it is happening to her. An obvious difference between the woman and Bartleby is when she realizes that she was wrong, “What has happened to me, I’m not myself anymore.” (Pg. 40) This is represented when she hit the child because of his antics. Her husband tried to help her in many times; he hired a nanny. This made the wife feel freer for a little bit.
