In The Shining one similarity in comparison to Long Day’s Journey into Night is the fact that both families have an inability to communicate. Danny is able to partly understand what is happening with his family, but fails to ever ask to talk to them about what he is suffering from. Just as Wendy and Jack both know about Danny’s intelligence and abilities, but have never discussed it or acknowledged them. The son also was first to even say the word divorce out loud in reference to his parents, even though Wendy and Jack both were considering it seriously, but they never spoke about to each other about it.
