We can all learn a thing a two from our elders and can never stop learning. We are all grateful for the sacrifices my father and his father made. Children are treated very strictly by their parents. But aunts and uncles are much nicer to their nephews and nieces. I remember I was not allowed to hang out with certain kids if my mom saw them as the trouble maker types.
From the looks of Antwone’s life he has continued to thrive and give. He is a family man caring for a wife and two girls, but also a speaker and a writer. Levinson also noted that middle adulthood is a balancing act, such as balancing young and old, Antwone is a writer, a father, and a husband yet he still strives and struggles to battle his past noting he will always have scars and that some of the things such as his beautiful kept home are to show people, such as his foster parents that he has overcome (Kuczynski,
When reading Antigone, I think most readers can relate to both Antigone and Ismene and their relationship between their brothers. In addition to this, Antigone also mentions the fact about family in general and dealing with obstacle courses, with two different people, with two different minds. In my opinion, I myself have one older sibling and we both have different mindsets and seem to argue and fight a lot, though when those times come, it just builds up our relationship. In the story, I can tell that Antigone had a great, strong, bond that has been built up, and was nearly impossible to tear down. I personally think that by the end of this part, author Paul Roche, will convey a theme to readers about loyalty, and love towards one’s family.
Fathers are often the parent who kids, especially sons, look up to and use as an inspiration. They inspire them to one day become successful in life and be able to provide for a family of their own, similar to how they, the fathers, did. This is apparent in both, the poem “Those Winter Sundays” by Robert Hayden and the image of a baby holding on to his father 's middle finger by Alex Taylor. The writer and photographer both portray the father and son relationship as one that involves a lot of sacrifice by the father in order for their sons to lead a better life, whether this be in the form of education or even just a warm home to wake up in. However, they are able to get these points across in different ways whether it be through the use of figurative languages such as imagery,
They all suffer through this some more than others. In Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin In The Sun, hope leads to connections between people as shown through how Walter Younger overcomes and adapts to family struggles but later realized that going through the hard times as a family allowed them to succeed. Walter makes connections with the family when they struggle as shown when Walter attempts to buy
Walker seeks her fathers approval and wishes to make him proud of how far she has come in life. It also shows that she has changed a lot since the time when she had “grieved” her father and that she has grown up and realized how much he means to her. She now emulates his father “cooking, writing, chopping wood, staring into the fire”. The power of the past, and his deep need to recapture a similar sense of the peace and protection he felt as a child, overwhelm his rational mind. In Walker´s world, the power of emotion is almost always too potent for the power of thought; what one feels intrudes on one’s thinking, even at times one does not wish it
Throughout the story, Umpire, the main character struggle to love his brother because of jealous. The symbol, the point of view and the setting of the story demonstrate that our love for our sibling is unbreakable. To begin with, the first literary elements that help support the theme of the story are their father’s watch. The watch represents their love for their father and something they have in common. In the story, we find of that Umpire’s father had promised him the watch when he comes back to visit him.
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.
But, the writing of the letters seems give a powerful sense that the father does somehow love his child as he asks him to write them. The father knows that he is illiterate and that his child is more literate than he is, making him more capable of writing to his wife. The father also knows that both his wife and child are still connected as they both probably write to each other back and forth, with the mother sending postcards to the child. Therefore, both sides of the communication (mother and father) give the child some sense of security that both parents are still a part of him. In “Persimmons”, the speaker connects with his father upon finding a painting of persimmons that his father had painted.
