Children in the Fifties growing up expected their parents to set the example by not being rigid or setting a standard to live by.

“[In] death, he was unable to leave her” (Priddy), for her poisoning Homer was an endeavoring way to never be along. Emily was looking for a way to resemble her father’s dead body she had grown to endear and learned to live without; “We did not say she was crazy then. We believed she had to do that. We remembered all the young men her father had driven away, and…knew that with nothing left, she would have to cling to that which had robbed her, as people will”

Although set side by side, Shelley literally proves that even the slightest guidance from her father made a difference between ending up ordinary or outlandish. In other words, the creature would not have behaved the way he did if he had support from a parent. In conclusion, Shelley’s unparalleled perspective makes practical use of the real experience of an isolated child in Frankenstein through allusions and symbolism to show the catastrophic consequences when the social contract shackling parents and children together is destroyed.
He did everything he could for his wife, and she still did not want anything to do with him. So really he was always the dull kid with a horrendous clothing selection who dropped his hat. Even if she felt this way about him she should have tried to stick beside him or gotten a divorce. A divorce probably would have been easier for the both of them, but instead they both died miserable lonely individuals. Works Cited Flaubert, G. Madame Bovary.
When Hamlet seems to be depressed even two months after his father’s death, Claudius addresses it. Gertrude tries to help the situation by saying, “Thou know’st ‘tis common, all that lives must die,/ Passing thorough nature to eternity” (1.2.72-73). Gertrude is disregarding all of Hamlets feelings towards his father by telling him he has no reason to be upset because everyone is going to die eventually. Gertrude clearly does not care about what mind set Hamlet is in and is trying to get him to forget about his father because Gertrude already has. With Gertrude saying ‘all that lives must die’ she is stating that it is no big deal that his father, her husband, has just passed away since it is completely normal and it happens to everyone.
"Long Distance" looks at the time and how the poet's father has lack of control of the time: "mother was already two years dead, Dad kept her slippers'. The 'antiques' from "my Grandmother" can be also be compared to the use of objects from the past and how it can be kept forever, nevertheless it's not possible to do so with people, because they die but they would be kept as a memory. The tones of the poems are quite different to one another but have one thing in common which was love that was given to two dissimilar things. "My Grandmother" shows resentment and guilt, the grandmother did not invest her time in her grandchild or anyone as she was preoccupied with her antiques "it kept her".

Hardy has made Farmer Lodge seem unfeeling and not caring about his son. This is another reason not to feel sorry for Farmer Lodge. Farmer Lodge ignores Gertrude and her needs because of her withered arm: “Half a dozen years passed away, and Mr and Mrs Lodge’s married experience sank into prosiness, and worse.” (Page 19) She needed his help and support but still he ignored her. This is cruel as he marries her and then ignores her. It is wrong.
