This causes him to take out all of his anger on his innocent daughter, being really cruel sometimes towards her. At the end of the novel, Lily’s father let her stay with the Boatwright sisters. This decision is consistent with T.Ray’s character because it shows us how he is a careless, unloving and prideful person. First of all, T.Ray is a careless person. For example, he does not take care of his daughter even though it’s somehow a father’s obligation to take care of his children.
Helen finally falls in love with Percy Armitage who asks for her hand in marriage but Dr Roylott "offers no position to the match." This shows his selfish personality, he only cares for himself and not his stepdaughter's happiness. He hangs about with criminal gypsies but he is in fact worse than the gypsies. "He has a baboon and cheetah which wonder freely over his grounds" This shows his weird, strange hard character. He is also quite a bully because Helen says, "for a long time we did all the work of the house" They had to do this because all the servants were afraid of being employed by him "No servants would stay with us".
The little things that he also did all added up to making him a horrible father. If he is compared to a father that actually loves his daughter, that type of father would punish her daughter for doing something morally wrong by taking away her privileges for a time, but T-Ray physically punishes Lily for irrelevant things. The reader can hardly find anything good about T-Ray but if the reader chooses to find the sympathy for him, it can be found deeper into the end of the story. When he finds out where Lily is staying, with August Boatwright, his mind quickly goes into thinking that Lily is Deborah because of his past experience. He already knows how it feels to be left by one person and once Lily left him too, all those same feelings that he had when Deborah was gone came back to him.
This is the only time Dally mentions his father in the novel and his tone suggests his disdain. Dally’s insolent behavior has to be because of his inadequate parents. Likewise, Johnny is also a victim of bad parenting due to his abusive mother and father. In The Outsiders the narrator, Ponyboy, describes Johnny’s personality and family atmosphere in the exposition. Ponyboy states about Johnny: “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clear down at our house”(12).
He even got bolder about it and soon went as often as he liked" (p. 18). I believe that separated parents can really affect so badly a family; and like in many cases, this happened in Essie Mae's. I think George Lee, who was her eight year old uncle, was one of the most negative persons during her childhood. This boy, who was supposed to take care of Essie Mae and the other kids, was a total bad model for her and that's also why she hated him. Many times this kid did hit them for any reason and he never cared about them.
Even after Orgon’s wife, son, and daughter continuously tried telling him about the dangers of Tartuffe, Orgon still didn’t listen. Tartuffe himself even says “I’m wicked through and through, the most miserable of sinners”, explaining to Orgon that he is a dishonorable individual. After keeping up this façade for so long, the real Tartuffe is finally exposed, and after being confronted by Orgon he admits he is here to take his estates. He confesses that he is in love with his wife, and now he will have Orgon arrested and will take all he has. If you think about it, we deal with a lot of fake religious idols now days.
For her mother, Hester, Pearl is parallel to the scarlet letter in that they both begin as punishments before becoming saviors. To the main men of the novel, little Pearl becomes a symbol of their failure to be accountable and responsible for their own actions or lack thereof. Moreover, to the town of Salem as a whole, Pearl serves to illustrate the inappropriate severity of the people’s harsh judgments as they criticize her needlessly. The smaller Ms. Prynne is a symbol to all who surround her, serving raise them up, or to display their failures. Little Pearl represents the worst thing that has ever befallen her mother, yet she turns out to watch Hester redeem.
There were multiple instances where he would interrupt Biff when he was trying to tell him something important, yet, he scolded his wife, Linda, several times for simply talking and it didn’t even appear as though she was interrupting anyone. This makes him a hypocrite, if not worse. He also cheated on his wife, which makes him pretty pathetic in my book. And not only did he cheat on his wife, Biff found out and Willy knows that this is the reason Biff never went to summer school to graduate. Even knowing it’s his own fault, Willy acts like Biff has all of the blame and Willy gives him such a hard time about not graduating.
Jane says, “ She really must exclude me from privileges intended only for contented, happy little children.” Mrs Reed gives an unbelievable amount of cruel treatment to Jane; for example, Mrs Reed has a new set of rules exclusively for Jane. John Reed is a child that behaves in an abusive way. No adult in the household stopped John’s behaviour. “He called his mother ‘old girl’…reviled her for her dark skin… and he was still ‘her own darling’.” John vandalized the place; insulted and disrespected his mother despite this; he was still her own darling. John steps out of line, and is despicably behaved.
