He overlooks Cory?s efforts to please him and make a career for his son, learned from his past with his own father, is responsible for the tension that builds between him and Cory. This tension will eventually be the cause of the lost relationship that is identical to the lost relationship that is identical to the lost relationship between Troy and his father. Troy?s damaging relationship with his father had a dual effect in his life. It created a conscious awareness of how not to conduct his life and built fences, which inevitably recreated his father in his personality. These fences shaped and formed his relationships with his son.
August Wilson created many themes throughout his famous play, Fences, but the most prominent one is the relationship between fathers and sons. The three father-son relationships introduced in this play seem to be complicated or difficult to understand. However, it is clear that the relationships built between Troy Maxson and his son Cory, Troy and his other son Lyons, and Troy and his own father are not love-driven. The parallelism of actions, events, and tension amongst each of the father-son relationships in the play illustrate how the sons try to break free from the constraints the father has set, yet in the end, these attempts seem to be pointless as the father leaves an everlasting effect on the sons, ultimately creating a cycle of actions
Fences presents many aspect of life that we experience day to day basis. Respect appears to be one of the key aspect of Fences. Troy wants respect from his family because he is the man of the house while acting insensitive and uncaring to his wife, Rose, his brother, Gabriel and his son, Cory. Troy had an abusive father, he never like him. Troy run away from his house to be on his own at a very young age because he never receive the love and respect he desires from his family, so he come around to repeat what his father had done because of the failure to see that the time had changed around him.
Although Walter has a job, it seems inadequate for his survival. As a result, he has become frustrated and lacks good judgement. Throughout this play Walter searches for the key ingredient that will make his life blissful. His frustrations stem from him not being able to act as a man and provide for his family and grasp hold of his ideals to watch them manifest into a positive situation. Walter Lee Younger, a man who is vehement for his family, has many ambitions in life, and dreams of the biggest dreams out of anyone else in the play.
Telemachi is self- conscious because he does not encompass the same skills his father is famous for. He is obviously incapable of warding off the suitors and desperately needs his father's assistance in order to regain control of his home. Telemachi reappears towards the end of the novel upon Odysseus' return to Ithaca. The return of Odysseus is an important role in relation to Telemachi. This demonstrates how Telemachi has matured as a direct result of Odysseus.
Throughout the novel Amir’s struggle to get love and approval from his own father became real as it lead him to become emotionally and physically confused and frustrated. As Amir always wished he made himself a promise for Baba “Then I'd bring it home and show it to Baba. Show him once and for all that his son was worthy” (Hosseini, 60). The trouble of going through manhood had put a lot of stress on Amir as he constantly worried about being “good enough” for his father. As seen as a failure in the eyes of his father Amir tried day by day to prove to his father that he was capable of doing more t... ... middle of paper ... ...t was too late for Amir to do anything.
A father typically provides support, solace, and strength for their children, but in The Death Of A Salesman we see an atypical version of this model. Willy becomes delusional and insane in a desperate attempt to provide for Biff and Happy. He has realized that he has failed them as a father and this creates the conflict. A father is meant to be a source of dependency for his children, but this is a portrayal of the reverse. Willy being dependent on the children is a testament to the fact that relationships are not to be taken for face value.
Throughout the play it's easy to feel anger, pity, and respect towards him. Even though Troy pursues the wrong course in trying to help Cory, it's still apparent that he cares for his son in his fractured way. Troy's bad relationship with his son can be traced back to his own relationship with his father. Troy despised his father, who was mean and didn't show any love to him, but kept by his family due to a sense of responsibility, which is molded into Troy's character. He goes to work everyday to provide for his family even though, but he can't express the love to them that they crave.
Troy's need for responsibility stems from his own fathers lack when it came to himself and his family. This causes a second generation of father and son conflict. As much as Troy despised his father, he inevitably becomes his father by picking up his characteristics. His actions of adultery and his self-illusion of care for his sons demonstrates this. The pressure to correct the past leads to an Act of Shame when he cheats on his wife.
A father is supposed to support and love his son no matter what obstacles he may face. A father is a role model for his son. A father is supposed to teach his son his mistakes so his son doesn’t have the same life. In Fences, by August Wilson Cory is Troy’s son, and they have a very complicated relationship. Troy is not a role model for Cory and he is not the perfect parent.
