His distorted perceptions of the American Dream ultimately ruined his life and the lives of his family. Sadly, Willy definitely failed as a father. He obviously favored his eldest son Biff over his youngest son Happy, and this constant neglect drove Happy to become more like his older brother as an adult in order to win his father’s approval. We can see this through his philandering behavior, something Biff was known for in high school, the golden years. Biff, on the other hand, had it worse because his father sold him lies about his importance in the business industry, which forced Biff to admire Willy and strive to be like him one day.

This moment is monumental in the story, as it is both imitation and irony, and shows the reader how Mick truly feels about his drinking, and his epiphany. After seeing his son throw up from alcohol, he then proceeded to drag him home with annoyance. After his epiphany, Mick said, ““Never again, never again, not if I live to be a thousand!”” (O’Connor, 302). This shows the irony of Mick exclaiming to never drink again, although the drinking usually began due to a build-up of spiritual pride and believing that he was better than his neighbours. Another way that the author uses irony is when Mick is dragging Larry home, and gets embarrassed by his son’s actions: “Who are ye laughing at?...Go away, ye bloody bitches!” (O’Connor, 302).
Mr. Earnshaw favorites Heathcliff over all of the other children, and this infuriate Hindley, making him “regard his father as an oppressor rather than a friend (75)” and Heathcliff as “a usurper of his parent's affections and his privileges (75).”Throughout the beginning of the novel, Bronte portrays Hindley as a villain towards the orphaned Heathcliff; however, this is all as a result of a lack of attention from his father.

Hindley is sent away to college, and returns a very different man. “He had grown sparer, and lost his color, and spoke and dressed quite differently (89)”, but this in no way changes his relationship towards Heathcliff. He also returns a married man.
How one treats those that are below them on society 's ladder says a great deal about them as a person. In the short story “Reunion” by John Cheever, Charlie’s father’s overbearing masculinity, and callous treatment of “domestics” lead to his further estranging his relationship with his son. Because this man is so focused on his own image of power and superiority, and because he is rude to the waiters, he loses valuable time to bond with his son. From the get-go Cheever emphasises the classic description of masculinity in Charlie’s father, foreshadowing his attitude and actions later on in the story. Charlie immediately notices his scent, “It was a rich compound of whiskey, after-shave lotion, shoe polish, woolens, and the rankness of the
He insults his sons and scolds Linda for buying the wrong cheese. Willy shows his biggest personality flaws early on in the story; contradicting his own thoughts, being verbally abusive, and showing his over developed sense of pride. Willy loses the readers sympathy again in a flashback early on in the play when he goes off on a rant about the money he owes for things, almost blaming Linda for their hardship. During a conversation with Happy, Willy again loses his temper and yells at Happy for trying to be nice and saying "Pop, I told you I'm gonna retire you for life"(I,1300). As that is going on the next door neighbor, Charley, comes over because of the noise and strikes up a conversation with Willy.
