Willy gambles everything he has- and more- on Biff, even though he seems to hate his son at times. This is most likely because Willy knew Biff knew his dirty little secret, and could not stand to think that his actions may have harmed his child’s balance. Yet it is ironic that Willy Loman’s legacy, based on the insurance money- is not used by the son he loved best, but by the one who always came in second. It leaves the audience wondering if Happy loved his father more than the worshipped Biff, or if Biff loved his father so much he could not stand to touch the money, knowing that his father had killed himself solely for his benefit.
A father is suppose to love the child and teach the child how to be a man and respect others, not abuse. In The Metamorphosis Kafka portrays Gregors neglectful father by showing lack of love , isolation and treating Kafka as an actual bug rather than a son. Kafka was abused mentally more than physically which is why he had social problems as an adult. In reality no child should be treated that bad that they feel as though they have woken as a bug and their family wants nothing to do with them.
In Junteenth and The Invisible man, Ralph Ellison argues that stereotyping can cause mayhem by making the people become something they are not. People are forced to by society’s views to be something they are not. The Invisible man is forced by society to be a well mannered boy, even after they treated him like black trash calling him things like “nigger”and made him undress, with other boys around his age, in front of them. Then when he had to give a speech, the same men only moments later called him “the smartest boy we've got out there in Greenwood.” (The Invisible man p.29). Even the Invisible Man’s grandfather’s last words told him to adapt to the society.
Oya no Takesuke considered Toyo-o nothing but a hindrance, and would have given his horrible son to another family, had he not been so ashamed of what the family might think of him because of his son. Oya no Takesuke also believes he is “shiftless and irresponsible” even irresponsible with money. So, like all good fathers, Oya no Takesuke allows him to be whatever he pleases, as long as it only burdens Taro. Toyo-o is many times referred to as youthful and good-looking. It is his good looks that catch the eye of the beautiful Manago, who is actually a demon with otherworldly powers, and his effeminate quality, and lack of discipline is what makes him weak to Manago's charm.
He is not your traditional scarred faced, shadowy bad guy. Another character one can focus on is Allen, a man struggling through life without knowing what love is. He substitutes this emotion by calling up strangers and getting off to their voices. Sick as it may be, you can see this man's torment, as it seems that he finds guilt in doing it.
Housewives in these miserable circumstances often became hysterical cleaners. They wore their lives away in an endless round of scouring, scrubbing, and polishing. The increased strain in working women comes from the reality that they carry most of the child-rearing and household responsibilities. According to social trends (1996), women always or usually do the washing in 79 percent of cases and decide the menu 59 percent of the time. Picking up the children at school or doing grocery shopping are just a few of the many typical household-tasks a woman takes on every day.
Angelou repeats the word “the” as she breathlessly, and without any commas, lists the chores that she must accomplish. “The clothes to mend / the food to shop / The baby to dry / The tots to dress” (1-14) The literary device used in this stanza allows the reader to feel the sense of overwhelm and tiredness that the housewife is feeling just by thinking about the chores she must do. The housewife appears to not have any help from an older human being as her chores include caring for the children, the baby, and the tots. From this first stanza it can be concluded that the woman is a single mom She has all of the indoor and outdoor chores to do by herself; normally it would be the husband’s responsibility to take care of outdoor chores. The housewife’s’ chores vary from female chores such as mopping the floor, mending the clothes, and frying the chicken, to then the ascribed male chores which include cutting cane and bringing home the food that is going to be cooked.
She herself lives in as fine a style as the richest lady she serves.Consequently, all these women are working in the basement where they an uncomfortable their backs a bend over because they don’t have the chairs where you could lean back. Sikes also include “Dark lines had come under her eyes; her complexion was losing its color, she forms its roundness and its springy life. In a word, the poison had entered her system and was killing her by degrees. Still, in her pride, her anxiety to make the "old folks" happy--she had sent home to her father more than one welcome banknote--she concealed her sufferings and struggled on. Moreover, Sikes is describing a girl name Susie L who die working in this type of environment, she was a beautiful
In Rita Dove’s “Daystar,” Dove describes an unnamed mother’s repetitive and exhausting daily routine to reflect the unsatisfying role that women play in society. The woman in the poem fulfills her duties as a mother by performing her chores and watching after her children, but at the end of the day, feels empty. Going through the same motions and actions day after day are not enough to fulfill the woman’s wants or needs anymore and she finds herself dreaming of a place other than the one she currently occupies. Dove switches tones frequently to express the emotions that the woman experiences throughout her day and uses disheartening words to mirror the mother’s displeasure with her life. Diction is an integral part of the poem because Dove manipulates certain words to elicit feelings of compassion from the reader.
