This was how Doodle died, but he never stopped loving his brother. “Brother, brother, don’t leave me! Don’t leave me!” Doodle cries out into the vicious storm. He doesn’t say to his brother somet... ... middle of paper ... ...ried to walk and swim. The reason Doodle kept up with the competitive antics of his brother was to gain a sense of worth and belonging within his family.
From this it can be derived that Charlie has lost two people: his father to death and his brother to an incurable Savant’s Syndrome. Cruise continues to hold his upset expression till the final scene cuts, when he walks to the exit with his posture straight. As a result, this highlights that Charlie is dignified for establishing a relationship with his older brother and promoting an equal society, unlike in the beginning. In conclusion, Rain Main is evidently a classic for both the modern and original audience, with clever contributions from the costume designer, lighting director and score composer. However, it is the actors, Hoffman and Cruise who, as a skilful cinematic duo perfectly accentuate themes of self-discovery, disability and self- awareness, in order to tell the audience that disability is a medical condition and not a social status.

Of these dreary men who had committed themselves, each for his own good reason, to the task of finishing their days as pennyless drunkards, I alone, as the sharer of their way of life, presented a replica of childhood to which their vision could daily turn, and in being thus grafted onto them, I became the unnatural son of a few score beaten men. (Neal Cassady The First Third) With him as not only the legendary driver of On The Road but also as the driver of the bus with the Merry Pranksters in tow, the two generations were symbolically connected by this great man, this damaged angel, Neal Cassady. His influence spanned over many different writers, artists, most notably the Grateful Dead, and prominent figures of the time. He tied the two movements together to make the fifties and sixties a time of complete revolution in America. He could be considered the bridge between the two generations, bringing the poetic and limit-pushing factors of the Beat Generation to the wild and unchained psychedelic era.

I found the novel On the Road to be a gripping novel with an engrossing plot. With a new setting in each chapter and new
Willy’s lies ensure that distortions become their truth, dishonesty their trade, and unhappiness their harvest. This web of deceit is the Loman legacy, and its destructive dividends are paid throughout the boys’ lives. Willy’s fabrications are rooted in abandonment, and he filled the void with a mythology of genealogical. His father is remembered as a great man: he, too, was a traveling salesman, and great inventor whose success was the stuff of folk tales. His brother A secondary father figure who appears to Willy in hallucinations is his brother Ben.
Luke 15: Beyond the prodigal son "And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine" The above verse in Luke chapter 15 is from the very popular story of the prodigal son. Interestingly though, in the above passage, the father was talking to the elder brother who never went away. More often than not, emphasis is mostly laid on the experience of the prodigal son who went away - his fall from grace to grass and subsequent 'triumphant' return home and rightly so. However, the moral lesson from the life of the elder brother usually seems under-told. Hence, I will be focusing on the life of the elder brother who stayed, was obedient and faithful in his duties.
Willy often sought his successful brother Ben’s advice and desperately tried to relive his happy and successful moments in his life through flashbacks with his sons and career.
