He tells her, truthfully, about how he felt when she concerned herself with his attire at their son’s funeral, opening the line of communication that is unfortunately unreceived. However, he makes the fatal mistake of running from his problems with Beth that may have been capable of being saved when he cries in the kitchen late at night, telling Beth that he does not think he loves her anymore because of her recent actions. This is an example of Calvin’s flight mode, contrasted by the fight that he produces at golf with Beth and her brother. He fights her on being so unwilling to be around Calvin as they discussed another vacation. These two things could have been solved, like Conrad, by assuring the value of the relationship to create safety and admitting the mutual purpose of staying together and properly raising their broken
Odysseus only shook his head, as he walked on” (Homer 685). After Odysseus came up with the plan to sabotage them from the inside, he went to the suitors, where he asked for food -disguised as a beggar-. After asking for food, the haughty suitor Antinous, bashfully threw a stool, just to defend for that meager comment, “A pity you have more looks than hearts”. Although Odysseus could’ve ended his life right now and then, he waited patiently; That is the true format of self-control, holding one’s eager covets in the most crucial moments. If Odysseus just gave up and fought back, his plan would’ve failed, for he can’t fight hundreds of men all alone; proving that self-control is

Eventually, after being taken advantage of many times - even losing a hundred dollar bill to a bartender - Jurgis finds himself in a socialist rally. He likes the idea, and gets a job at a socialist hotel, where the novel ends optimistically as he urges more people to convert to socialism. Sinclair’s purpose is to illustrate the theme of the plight of the immigrant workers, and all of the plot relates back to this struggle.

Homer opens with Penelope, Odysseus wife and their son, Telemachus showing hospitality to Penelope’s suitors. Despite this kindness, the suitors began overrunning their home, eating all their food, and drinking everything as if it was their own. This type of hospitality was expected, however. No one was turned away and beggars were considered to be from Zeus, sent to test the host. Telemachus finally admits his irritation with the suitors’ misuse of the hosts’ hospitality “But if you decide it is more profitable and better/ to go on, eating up one man’s livelihood, without payment,/ then spoil my house” (I. 376-382).

He tries to fit in the western culture. That particular scene gives us an understanding of Eddie’s mindset that he wants to break out of his culture and be like other westerners. Another scene that shows Eddie breaking out of the Asian stereotypes, is when his mother gives him noodles for school lunch. Eddie did not appreciate his Asian-style Noodles because his mates at school believe that his noodles were repugnant. This gives a negative view towards his parents and culture.
