  • Father Returning Home Poem

    Dilip Chitre creates a stark impression of the isolation of old age in his poem ‘Father Returning Home’ by showing his fathers’ estrangement from society and his own family. Chitre conveys this isolation by using literary devices such as similes and repetition, and addressing themes such as modernity vs tradition. The poem begins when a father is waiting outside for a train which will take him home. We know this as it says ‘My father travels on the late evening train’. Already by labelling the train as ‘late’ we know that it is either a late time of the day, or it is late because society does not need to be on time for older people. The sibilance used to describe the commuters creates a ‘hissing’ sound in the readers mind emphasizing how unpleasant the situation is. The reader immediately feels pity for the father when it is said ‘suburbs slide past his unseeing eyes’. This conveys that the father is old and that his eyesight is not very good. It also shows that the father is very tired and he must have had a very long day at work. Another mention to the eyes in the poem emphasizes that his eyes are ‘dimmed by age’ and are fading homeward. The initial few lines of the poem already make the reader feel pity for the father and realise that despite his old age, he is still not being taken care of by society. All around him, everybody is quiet and waiting to go home, not helping him as his ‘bag stuffed with books is falling apart’. This bag could be a reference to the man’s…

  • Summary: Collectivism In The Workplace

    With the fast-paced growth of globalization, a manager is facing with different ethnicities of employees, be it domestically or oversea. The U.S. culture has always been emphasizing individualism in which each individual is recognized for his achievement and/or contribution in the workplace. This is called social loafing.

  • Shirley Chisholm: Race For Equality

    Shirley Chisholm: Race for Equality Today, women and minorities have a wide variety of professions they can pursue; but it was not always that way.

This caused Emma Goldman and her second husband, Alexander Berkman, to attempt murder. They believed in over throwing government with violence. Goldman took a few years to hide from society but was once again strongly…

  • Anarchism And Marxist Power

    To effectively interpret theorist conceptualizations of power we must first understand power as a social construction. This is an important concept to acknowledge when attempting to understand the role of power in both Marxism and Anarchism.
