Franz lost his wife and his son that was going to graduate from Medical school the following June. Ronald says “God he was a smart kid”. From the reading, I know that Franz had a drinking habit, so that made him a more independent person. Ronald felt that he was talking to his own son when talking to McCandless. Franz was hoping to adopt McCandless after he came back from his trip.
When reading the text Fear, by Gary Soto, I can’t help but assume the author’s purpose or overarching theme was that our past or life experiences can affect how we act. In this stories case, a life without love, can cause terrible behavior. The plot of the story revolves around a boy that comes from a broken home, and due to such circumstances he bullies his peers. The story was a typical encounter a fifth grader would have with Frankie (boy from a broken home). The narrator says, “Some of us looked away because it was unfair.
But later on, what with sickness and cold and hunger and discouragement, and the filthiness of his work, and the vermin in his home, he had given up washing in winter, and in summer only as much of him as would go into a basin. He had had a shower bath in jail, but nothing since—and now he would have a swim!” (178). This explores the way that Jurgis came to America with hopes and dreams in which he worked very hard to try to accomplish. Such as, looking for jobs and protecting his family from having to venture out in the real world like he had to. However, once he saw what it was really like he gave up on trying to “play by the rules” because he realized society was driven by everyone's own self
Huck basically grew up as an orphan, learning everything for himself while his father was busy getting drunk. When his father was around, he often beat Huck and was a bad role model in his life. When he escaped and began to befriend Jim, Jim took on a paternal role for Huck. In chapter nine when the river floods and the house floats by, Jim will not let Huck see the dead man inside. This is one example of how Jim is protective over Huck and tries to preserve his innocence.
The foremost example is that Schotz was actually sick when the other boy was not and actually faking. It started with a boy in his neighborhood, Walter, who had inflammatory rheumatism who didn’t have to go to school and could fish whenever he liked. (Stolen Day 305). When the boy got to school, he started aching and was told to go home when he really started thinking that he had it like Walter. Thinking his family would just laugh at him if he told them about his theory, he decided it would be best not to tell them.
Through this conversation, the narrator gained respect and insight on Sonny's life in the times that he was not there. Sonny was cryptic in his speaking at first but eventually made it very clear to his brother and even said, "the reason I wanted to leave Harlem so bad was to get away from drugs" (89). The narrator does not have much to say, but ultimately blames all of this on the "vivid, killing streets of [their] childhood" (73), that neither of them had truly escaped. He once thought they both had, him by becoming a teacher and Sonny by simply not living in Harlem for years, but in this moment, he realizes that not much has really changed - they still faced those streets, the only difference now was that they knew what they inherit. Sonny convinced his brother to come watch him play - the narrator knowing he could not possibly say no.
He doesn’t learn to live with it and move forward, but he chooses to be stuck in it. He’s still angry with what father used to do with him when he was young. Obviously, he has a bad relationship with his father when he was young. He says that Ba is “an abusive” father and tough on him while he was growing up. For instance, Nam was required to
Will has a hard time accepting the role, but realizes that it is the only way to live if you desire close relationships and people to remember you. Will begins to tell the story of how his father dies and the story comes full circle for Will and Edward. Will Bloom will eventually take on the role of the crazy old man with all of the stories as his son grows up and as he grows old. He was conflicted with being this person and had to experience the story for himself with his father to finally accept who he will become in the eyes of others. Being a Pantaloon in this story is not a bad thing, as we can see many people from Edward’s life show up at his funeral to remember the most interesting person they have ever met.
His father had to give him up as a child into an apprenticeship sort of so he could have a better life. His apprenticeship thing was supposed to last 12 years. His father told him when he left to “Follow his feet they’ll take you home.” He meant by this that after his “apprenticeship” he’d have to find his own way home because William asked as his father was leaving how he would get home. His “apprenticeship” was under Sir Ulrich von Lichtenstein. During his 12 years as a squire he would be accompanied by two other squires who were also under Sir Ulrich von Lichtenstein.
Stephen King’s early life was full of problems. He was Born September 21, 1947 in Portland, Maine to Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King.

I will be grocery shopping at Publix Super Market. I chose Publix Super Market because it is only about 2 miles away so it is very convenient for me. Publix Super Market has fruits and veggies, and also brand name food. It is like a Hy-Vee. I will be packing lunch everyday for work.
He later joined the Job Corps, but later realized he could not make the money like he did in the drug business. On page 144, Wes was passing the streets remaining him of his past, “But the main reason he avoided the streets was that he felt they had nothing for him. He had changed. At least he wanted to believe that.” Wes later made the decision to take the risk to sell drugs for a living. 2) Both environments played a huge role into their personalities and their stories.
