A kid to him wasn?t nothing. All he wanted was for you to learn how to walk so he could start you to working? (548; I,4). Although Troy had very little respect for his father and vowed to be nothing like him, many of his father?s harsh personality traits show up in his own personality. Despite Troy?s continuous attempts to push himself away from anything he had ever known about his father, the inheritance of such irrational behavior was inevitable because it was all he had ever known.
So, Troy fails to see the way from the future Troy is still living in the past because that is all he knows about growing a family. Rose single handedly handles everything that happen around Troy because she respects him as her husband. Respect is part of love required to raise a child; Troy overlooked this aspect of love hence, repeat the cycle of his bad past. The first past repeating cycle can be seen in the play when Troy turn down Cory’s opportunity. Troy do not want his son Cory’s life to be like him, but yet he raised him to be an independent man like his was.
This respect is lost when Biff catches his father in an affair with a young lady. Even though this is not talked about (Biff never told anyone, not even his mother) it still creates tension and causes Biff to lose the respect he once held for Willie. Willie's main philosophy in life is "Be liked and you will never want" and this is the cause of the problems in the third part of Willie's life, his image. Image is everything to Willie. In his past he was a well liked, well known, respected man who turned his image into his success, but his image has changed.
He provided for her and gave her a somewhat stable house hold. As a salesman he probably came across as arrogant to try and compensate for his other shortcomings but he tried. In all aspects of his life he tried and never stopped he kept trying to achieve his “American Dream.” Even at the end when he committed suicide he was only thinking of his family and trying to do what he thought was best for them. Willy says “Nothing’s planted. I don’t have a thing in the ground” (Miller pg.
For this reason, Okonkwo never expected that he would find himself making a living in his motherland when he knew he belonged in his fatherland. By providing for his needs during his exile, Okonkwo’s family in his motherland showed him that help could come from the most unlikely place and could change his life forever. Besides providing for him in his exile, Okonkwo’s family infl... ... middle of paper ... ..., Okonkwo fell into despair, overtaken by the changes and realization that he failed – alone. Throughout Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo’s family and home provided for him when he was in exile, influenced his character from early childhood, and ignited his downfall when his home began to change. Just as Okonkwo experienced, every person’s home had a direct influence on the events and characteristics that they will acquire; however, some people overlook the impact that home has on him or herself.
Worst of all, his step-father harassed him since he was little and he was incapable of expressing himself about the harassment to his mother. That's why Bone had no choice but to adapt the behavior and mistakes of those who surrounded him in order to pull through life. Basically, Bone shouldn't be blamed for his actions when he really never experienced the feeling of having a true family to support him or enlighten him with the essentials and aspects of life or even how to face obstacles an individual may encounter. Unlike ... ... middle of paper ... ...k the difference between right and wrong was obvious.

Meanwhile Sarty cautioned Major De Spain about his father’s motives. And lastly, three gun shots went off, but Sarty had no desire to look back to see who was killed.

The twelve other times the Snopes family moved; all the owners were usually small in a poor country. Sarty could not come up with a reason for his father to do anything threatening to this prized family, however his immoralities stayed constant.
His brother, Tony was a drug dealer who wish he could go back in time and make the right decisions and he wanted Wes to be different than him. He didn’t want his brother to end up like him and even after he tried everything to keep Wes away from drugs, nothing worked and he gave up. As you can see, both families are very different, Wes (the author) has a family who wants him to have a bright future. Most importantly, a family who responds fast because right after his mother saw him falling down the wrong hill she didn’t hesitate to do something about it. The other Wes isn’t as lucky, as I believe since his mother already had so much pressure over keeping her job and her son Tony being involved in drugs.
Having an affair was one of his main problems-he could not put enough love into his family, so he put it anywhere else he could. He visited his mistress on business ventures, which is the only aspect of his life he truly appreciated. Therefore, his home life became full of lies, Biff saying that they “never told the truth for ten minutes.” Miller is, again, critiquing American households, since their typical values revolve more around money and presentation than a loving, kind, and caring home. Willy had a family who loved him, but he neglected to notice this, which lead to his unhappiness. Never placing any type of value of love and kindness can cause a person to become cold and bitter, which is exactly what Willy became.
Through losing his mother he learned to not take for granted the people in his life. He also learned from his parents that he did not want to raise his children like they did. From the lack of money he grew up with, he developed a hard worker attitude. He was determined to not maintain the life he knew for his children. My parents fight and argue but they have never talked about splitting up or getting divorced.
