Better Essays
Register to read the introduction… From the moment that Aanakwad fell in love with the other man, the grandfather feared her and became very bitter towards her. “For he was afraid of his wife’s bad temper, and it was he who roused Aanakwad into anger by the sheer fact that he was himself and not the other.” No matter how much the grandfather tried, he could not recapture her love and because of that he lost respect for her. Despite the fact that the grandfather loved her he had to admit that their life together was no longer a happy one.

He held a grudge against his mother and was incapable of moving on until his perception of her was changed. His wife died early on, just another aspect of his ugly reality, and he had absolutely no relationship with his children. “He became, for us, a thing to be avoided, outsmarted, and exploited.” Who wants to be around someone when not even their own children look up to them or respect them? “I suppose we stopped thinking of him as a human being, certainly as a father.” The ugly patterns and reality he fell into were most definitely a result of his ugly perception. Until someone or something opened his eyes to a new world, with a better reality, absolutely nothing would change. This change was necessary for him to develop a relationship with his children and to earn their respect as a human

He also loathed himself because his father being a problematic father figure and then dying. Schiele identified with his father, but his father was a diseased man whose sexual disease destroyed his family and made him insane, and therefore Schiele had tortured feelings about his sexuality and his mental health.
