He could not believe that the God he followed tolerated such things. During times of sorrow, when everyone was praying and sanctifying His name, Elie no longer wanted to praise the Lord; he was at the point of giving up. The fact that the “Terrible Master of the Universe, chose to be silent”(33) caused Elie to lose hope and faith. When one cho... ... middle of paper ... ...ed Auschwitz, he was emotionally dead. The many traumatizing experiences he had been through affected Elie and his outlook on the world around him.
It is not easy, he always thinks about it and being away for it made him angry and grumpy most of the time. Eventually, Katz does break his promise, thus this effects their friendship greatly, as Bryson says “I was furious, livid - more furious than I had been about anything in years. I couldn’t believe he was drinking again. It seemed such a deep, foolish betrayal of everything - of himself, me, what we were doing out here” (251). This signifies how Katz had a bad mental breakdown when he took the break from the hike.
Parker detests his own wife, calling her “plain,” (382) but he still stays with his wife, an action that caused him to be “puzzled and ashamed of himself” (382). Perhaps the real reason he is staying with his wife is that she “had married him because she meant to save him,” (382) and Parker is waiting to be saved. Sarah knows that O.E. Parker’s real name, Obadiah Elihue, is significant when she says it out loud in “a reverent voice” (387).
King Lear, has many valuable points. Shakespeare emphasizes the importance of love between family members by showing how much harm disloyal or unloving family members can cause. King Lear cruelly abuses his most loving daughter, Cordelia, simply because she admits that her love for her father is limited: "Unhappy that I am, I cannot heave my heart into my mouth. I love your Majesty/ According to my bond, no more nor less." This truthful declaration by Cordelia leads to her disinheritance.
When looking at Old Hamlet, Hamlet’s deceased father, it can be said that the thought of him fuels many of Hamlet’s decisions, thoughts, and actions because of his deep love for his father. On the contrary, one can say the opposite for his mother Gertrude. She seems to fuel the anger and disgust in Hamlet because of the decisions that she has made after the death of the king. One last emotion that Hamlet eventually loses is love, or infatuation. This is shown through Hamlet’s behavior towards Ophelia, the woman he was so infatuated with, but later wanted nothing to do with, as he is at the peak of his obsession.
His mother, Gertrude, needed to spend time with him, to show him he was loved and someone cared about him. Gertrude was not there for Hamlet the way she should have been, and because of this he began to act like he was crazy. Instead of spending time with her son, Gertrude was busy getting married to the late Kings brother Claudius. King Hamlet loved his son like any father does. Hamlet looked up to his father like all children do and his life was greatly changed when he learned of his fathers death.
Hamlet and Gertrude’s Relationship Hamlet’s relationship with his mother Gertrude is one of mostly rage, hatred, and possibly jealousy that could have been from loving her in a romantic sense. Hamlet finds out that Gertrude marries his father’s brother soon after his father’s death and goes in a fury. He yells at her and he calls her an incestuous beast. Whether or not this is from hatred for Claudius, Gertrude, or even out of jealousy are all cases that can be very well argued. The fluctuating emotions that Hamlet shows throughout is what makes the play so easy to relate to as a human and also what makes the possibility of there being multiple interpretations on how he really feels.
Laertes(Ophelia's brother) loves her with all of his heart. He is always worried with her well being and whatever choices she may decide on. He tells Ophelia to be cautious of Hamlet's love and words to her. Laertes tells her that Hamlet seeks not her but what she can offer. Laertes also points out that Hamlet is evil and that she should fear him instead of loving him.
While his youngest daughter, demonstrates, as witnessed in Of a child’s feare of his parent, “…/respect ariseth from an honourable esteem which a chld in his judgement and opinion hath of his parent, as he is his parent; and from it proceedeth on the one side, a desire and endeavor in all things to please the parent, and on the other side a loathness to offend him” (431-432). Cordelia loves her father. Yet, King Lear is truly offended because he loved her the most. He is so angry at her betrayal that he disowns
First, Holden is mentally unstable because throughout the book he shown himself to be an extremely depressed and sad person on the verge of suicide. For example, "It made me so damn sad when I thought about it, their never going anywhere swanky for lunch or anything. I knew it wasn't too important but it made me sad anyway."(Pg. 114) Sadness comes so easily to Holden that something as joyful as two Nuns collecting money for a good cause that helps people depresses him. He is like a time bomb "tick" "tock" just waiting for the right situation to arise till he has a complete break down.
