As a child, I had always looked to my father as a hero. To me, he was strong enough to take on an army one handed, tall enough to reach for the moon and give it to me, and wise enough to know everything about everything. There was nothing my father could not do. He took time to teach me to read, write, walk, and talk. When learning how to walk, like any child I would occasionally fall. My father would pick me up and put me back on my feet. He always encouraged me to “get up and try it again.” I felt no doubt in his eyes; he made me believe that I can accomplish anything that I set my mind to. In my rebellious early teenage years I saw that my father did not know everything like I previously

children many aspects of life mothers cannot provide during raising up her child.
The first reason why both fathers and mother should have equal opportunities to raise their children is that father, by his masculinity nature, will be better to give his child the sense of braveness and teach him to defend himself against anyone who could hurt him in his environment. For playing out similar situations in the house with his child, would certainly increase the child’s method of analyzing any trouble he could be involved in the future and enhance his self-confidence and sense of responsibility. Even though I agree that mother should give her son/daughter a sense of tenderness to keep the

Not to crush Elise’s dreams and interfere with her bright future, David ends his pursuit of her much in the same way that Oedipus leaves his father, “the man whom Oedipus, long ago, feared so, fled so, in dread of destroying him” (56). Both David and Oedipus leave their loved ones behind to avoid causing harm to them, but through fate, harm comes to them anyways. Elise is emotionally crushed without David in her life, and Oedipus inadvertently kills his own father.

Our response to stimuli constructs our human condition and furthermore who we are as an individual. Whether it is positive or negative forces, our responses to these things influence how we are perceived by people. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Hamlet seeks out revenge on Claudius, his uncle turned step-father who killed his father and is now trying to act innocent. Although the characters believe in Claudius’ innocence and furthermore that Hamlet is crazy, it is in the final interaction between Hamlet and Claudius that all can see Claudius’ guilt. It is a natural response for some to react in fear with violence, as it is part of our human nature which can be seen through Hamlet’s driving desire

Corruption in “In the Shadow of War”
There are many people that possess a clear sense of good and evil. However, in many cases there is no good or evil in decisions: one must base their decisions on chances of survival. Over time, enough suppression of moral can lead to corruption: this can happen whether it is willing or unwilling. In Ben Okri’s “In the Shadow of War”, there are characters that have been forced into these decisions in order to continue living. The theme of corruption is evident throughout the story; this is seen most clearly though the vicious actions of soldiers, the apologetic actions of the father, and the depraved actions of the government.

He then sat me on his knee and opened his Bible, as he so often did. He quickly leafed through to the book of Exodus 20:15, and had me repeat after him, “Thou shalt not steal”. He told me that this was one of the Ten Commandments. He then gave me a pencil and three sheets of paper and had me write that verse 100 times. I wrote until my hand hurt and everyone else had already gone to bed.

him marrying his brother’s wife and being insensitive at Hamlet’s mourning the loss of his father. Finding out that Claudius was the one who killed the king intensifies the audience’s feelings of antipathy towards Claudius. At the same time, Shakespeare uses the same incident to awake in the audience feelings of sympathy towards Hamlet, who is deeply affected by his father’s death and by finding out that his father was killed by his uncle. By revealing to the audience emotionally charged incidents, Shakespeare manages to manipulate the audience’s sympathies.
Shakespeare develops Hamlet’s character in this scene, as his feelings of anger and sorrow are intensified. He expresses that he has had a suspicion about his uncle even before the Ghost could tell him what he did. Following the encounter with the Ghost, Hamlet is starting to plan his revenge. He cautions his friends that he will be acting unlike himself from that moment on. Through this incident, the audience gains some insight about the motives for Hamlet’s behaviour to come.
