Troy states that his father was greedy and would put his own personal needs above the needs of the family. This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil. The way Troy 's father treated him would cause Troy to run away at a young age and would be forced to steal and rob.
His control extended not only to Amari, but also over the other residents of the plantation. He did not like Mrs. Derby, and he tried to control her life as best he could, taking her child to his father; “Polly could tell that Clay was actually enjoying this! She and Amari watched, horrified, as Clay lay the naked, screaming baby on the dirt in front of his father,” (182). Clay knew his father would kill the child, and Clay had hated the child before it was born because of the initial praise it received. Clay tried to manipulate, or control, the situation to his advantage and benefit.

He had an affair with his servant whom he considers a child (Act one, Scene two) and admitted he only had the affair because he was a lustful man. Furthermore, he withheld critical information from the village which resulted in the village believing in the illusion of witchcraft and leading to the deaths of many.

These are merely three demonstrations of Proctor's choice in
Esteban Trueba where can I begin to explain why I find him most interesting. Is it the fact, that he was the one that had the changed the most during the time of reading the book, or was it the fact that he was such a hardworker? In order to try and make himself happy, he fails others. Esteban was a child who lived in poverty and pain, but he became so sick of living life like that, that he decided to leave and search for a better life.

It explains his childhood, and it tells why his father left him. It also explains why his fiancé left him and why she never returned. This explanation illustrates why Scrooge was so mean and hateful to others, and it allows the story to come to life. We all need to remember to love others, even when we are in an awful circumstance. The play had a little more symbolism than the movie did.
The narrator of the play states “Thomas Putnam felt that his own name and the honor of his family had been smirched by the village, and he meant to right matters any way he could.” (Act I) The Nurses were involved with Thomas’s brother-in-law not becoming minister of Salem. He also sides with his wife Ann after she accuses Rebecca Nurse. The families aren’t exactly the best of friends.

Because of his arrogance he had become cruel to the boy he loved and in the end killed him out of misery.

This ultimately led to his downfall when a cultural collision was evident and he couldn 't face it. His

Okonkwo's temper always manages to shine through, Things Fall Apart depicts this perfectly by stating, “It is not only Ikemefuna who feels fear… every nerve in Okonkwo tells him this is wrong, but when the moment comes, he kills his adopted son.” The inability for Okonkwo to be weak makes him solely cruel and with a weak father like Unoka he felt forced to adapt opposite ideals. Chinua Achebe shows how Okonkwo had to make a life for himself as his father had not allowed for many opportunities for him to come in play. Later the author of the article, Psychology & Behavioral Health Vol.2 the author talks about the motivation that it takes to overcome and cope with the fears that prohibit him from growing and being he optimal version of himself.

Even after Gary made a good change for himself he relapsed and started to have outburst and become obnoxious, which shows how hard a person can try, however they can never escape their bad habits. Gilmore grew up in a nice family however he could never stay out of trouble, and his terrible decisions ended him. Nevertheless, Mailer uses the perception of the american selfhood to show a different perspective you have about someone, “In The Executioner's Song, Mailer is exploring the uncertainties of an American selfhood and a society that build up into an intolerable tension in his main characters. Gilmore, for example, cannot control his compulsive and ambiguous behavior,” (Daniel Defoe, 2). Mailer uses the perspective about how everyone thinks of a person growing up in a great family having their life be the opposite of the “american dream”, and this leads into believing that Gary is a heartless, disgusting murderer with no
