It seemed like Pap wanted to be a part of Huck’s life that’s why he brought Huck out to the cabin to where no one could civilize him. In the novel, Pap didn’t seem to care about Huck. The only reason he wanted to take Huck into his custody was for the money so he could buy alcohol, as that‘s what the people in the town thought. Huck was afraid of his father since he always abused him. “I used to be scared of him all the time, he tanned me so much.
With his mother disapproving of his business she decides that she is going to invest the money in a house instead. Buying a house will not only benefit her but will benefit the whole family as well. When Walter hears the news he does
In Angela’s Ashes, the father Malachy is inflicted with the disease of alcoholism, and his need for the drink leads him to use his paycheck to buy alcohol instead of using it for the basic needs of his family. Countless times, Malachy’s alcoholism harms or gets in the way of his family. Not only this, but Malachy is blind to what his behavior is doing to his family. Because he does not use his money on food for his family, they are forced to beg and accept help from friends and strangers—and yet he is too proud to admit this. Repeated instances such as when he asked the RIAA person for enough money just for one pint—when the money was supposed to be for a cab to get he and his son back to the station without having to walk.
Which further proves the point that actions are as strong as words, especially when it comes from the only people you trust and care for. Early in the novel, Jimmy grew up to fill the negative regions of his fathers footsteps. He would come home late in the night passed out drunk. He loved to make even strangers mad, just to take a shot at them. He knew he would never have a chance to get out of the Bowery with a future, so to earn as much respect as he could so he basically was a insensitive jerk to the world.
Malachy didn't bring home the wages like a good husband but he would leave his family waiting at home for their supper whilst he went down to the pubs and drank all the money. At time like these, Frank could see his mother was angry and upset and he hated his father when he did that to her. Malachy came home drunk so many times, Frank and his brothers knew exactly what was going on when he didn't come home at dinner time, they knew not to talk to him because he'd done the 'bad thing'. Frank constantly says that as he is the eldest son, he wanted to bring home the money his father never did and a number of times he thinks to himself that he wished he had a different dad. When Oliver dies, Frank gets very angry at his father for putti... ... middle of paper ... ...ound him.
Ironically, however Robert is physically blind, it is the narrator who is the one who is bling to the world. The narrator is a troubled individual; from the discussion with his wife, it is uncovered that he doesn't have companions. Like Carver's life, the storyteller's utilization of alcohol is destroying his marriage with his wife; she rather discuses personal problems and converse with Robert and not her husband. The strong friendship between the narrator's wife and Robert aroused his insecurities and bias opinion. He is envious of the relationship between Robert and his wife; he feels like "she has told him everything or it so it seemed" about their marriage.
He hurts when his heartbroken mother dies, which leads him to lack sympathy for others when he only wants sympathy for himself. After twelve years, he has no knowledge that he has a father that actually exists, and no answer to who his father may be. This leads him to feel alone and desperate to find love in any way that he can do so. Already he hurts because his mother’s death, but Heathcliff has no regards when he torments Linton’s spiritual being and physical being. Additionally, despite Linton’s conquest for love, Linton’s father despises him to a point that leads Linton to be rude and to display the characteristics of hate toward the one person he truly loves.
Huck learned to read and write and even acquired some religion, but he didn't like it too much that Miss Watson continually tried to vanquish his smoking and swearing. One day Huck saw footprints in the snow and realized that his father was back in town. This made Huck very uncomfortable because his father stayed drunk and beat him whenever he felt like it (which was most of the time). Huck knew the only reason his Pap came back was to collect his son's money. After finding out about his Pap, Huck went quickly over to Judge Thatcher's house to sign away the right to his share of the twelve thousand dollars.
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). After this episode, comes Micks has an epiphany about how he acts when drunk, and later swears off the drink. This is also humorous as it is a reversal of expectations, but in a non-traditional way. The author used the humour to make light of a serious situation, a child being drunk. Lastly, Larry’s ‘holiday’ until his eye healed is ironic as most parents would want their child to get back to regular life, and learn from their mistakes.
His attitude towards work changed too. He started showing up at jobs late and didn't care what his workers were doing. His business started to decrease and slowly he was going bankrupt. He failed to tell his wife Corinne important information, like their money, and how they were slowly losing it, and how he was angry all the time. He also started to avoid looking at his daughter Marianne, the victim, because he said: .
