Hassan and Sohrab is completely set aside to Amir’s relationship with Baba, and their family acts as a foil to Amir’s, promoting the theme of the necessity of an empathetic father. Hassan listens to his son,enjoys spending time with him, and plays with him. He takes his son’s feelings into account. Sohrad has a strong connection with his father and enjoys his early years spent with Hassan. While Amir’s early childhood was spent trying to get his father 's attention while also trying to find ways to make him proud of him.
Without the fatherly love and guidance only a father can provide, a child could easily feel lost and confused. No father raises his children the same way and each one applies his own teachings and beliefs. But one thing all fathers do have in common is that they love their children unconditionally. Mr. Malter chooses to openly show his love for Reuven, as does Mr. Merrit to his son, Billy. The book shows how much the two fathers openly care about their children.
These fences shaped and formed his relationships with his son. Due to his conscious efforts to not become what he did hold that were his father?s. The narrowness of his thoughts and ideas about life made him an almost impossible person with whom to have a relationship. These flaws permanently changed the lives of the people around him and built barriers which were too solid to ever be broken. Works Cited Wilson, August.
Their presence and importance in his life make it necessary to view the motivating aspects of his interaction with them, whether it is positive or negative. The first character that we must analyze comes in the form of the overbearing but idolized father, who sets the foundation for Biff’s beliefs and way of life. Many different aspects of this relationship can be portrayed in reference to Biff’s ultimate and final realization at the end of the play. In Biff’s youth, he accepts and adores everything that pertains to Willy because that is the nature of a small child. Even though we later realize the err in Willy’s ideology, his initial instincts to teach his son success held no faults.
He praises Telemachus's patience, gentleness, and prudence - all outstanding qualities that he is lacking. Ulysses acknowledges that he and his son are opposite people. He is adventurous, while Telemachus is sedate. "He works his work, I mine" (Tennyson, Line 43) suggests acceptance of a destiny; the father and son must lead separate lives because of their differences. Despite changing roles the man plays in Telemachus' life, he successfully raises his son to become a respectable leader.
The hope that his son would be a good person rather than an intelligent one with no soul pushed him to be harsh and cruel but overall, left his son with empathy, strength, a relationship with his father, and a connection with God and the world around him. In the final chapter, after Reb Saunders is finished talking to Reuven, he turns to his son. For the first time outside of services, Reb Saunders speaks to his son directly, without Reuven’s help. This is a big moment for their relationship and is a turning point where Danny sees that his father is making an effort at finally communicating with him. He also sees that his father finally knows that he is a good and empathetic person and is willing to trust him to go out in the world with inner strength and the knowledge of suffering.
He says, “Every other form of sin is a variation of theft” (Hosseini 19). Although they are connecting, what Baba says is ironic because he steals Amir’s right to having a father by neglecting him and his contrasting interests. “At this age, a son wants so much to please his father and receive his approval and acceptance” (Williams). Growing up, Amir constantly seeks for his father’s approval, but hardly finds it. Baba’s failure to be comp... ... middle of paper ... ...he true meaning of being a compassionate fatherly figure from both experiences.
That kind of favoritism has a profound effect on a child, in order to be acknowledged by his father, Happy believes he must become Willy’s version of success by acquiring wealth and popularity. Happy has been living his entire life in a way that he believes will bring him attention from his father, yet his father ignores him and he becomes more miserable that if he had gone his own way. When a father chooses to favor upon one son over another, the father-son relationship occurs as well as in the son’s life. Within this relationship, the responsibility of the father is to provide values, a role model and leadership for his sons. In almost every family, the sons will look to their father as role model and a hero, which in this case Biff does but Happy does not.
“The boy was all that stood between him and death.” (McCarthy 29) It is evident that without a reason to live, in this case his son, The Man has no motivation to continue living his life. It essentially proves how the boy needs his father to love and protect him, while the father needs the boy to fuel ... ... middle of paper ... ...e to seek to find something in their lives to keep them alive. Having someone to depend on is necessary for an individual to succeed in life. They provide each other with motivation, love, and simply the will to live.

According to the father, he wants to see happiness and good balance in his son’s life. He wants to give him advice on everything whether it is pretty aspect of life or harsh aspect of life. He wants his child to live entirely in happiness but he is aware that life is not a bed of roses. The information in these stanzas is quite real and close to reality. I think the personal interpretation of emotions of father for a son is present in the poem.
