Transcript of Father/Son Relationship

Night by Elie Wiesel Theme: Father/Son Relationship "My father was a cultured man, rather unsentimental. He rarely displayed his feelings, not even within his family, and was more involved with the welfare of others than with his own kin." (Wiesel, 4) "His voice was terribly sad. I understood that he did not wish to see what they would do to me. He did not wish to see his only son go up in flames." (Wiesel, 33) I chose the theme father/son relationships because Elie's father was what made Elie not give up on life and not give in to death. Their relationship changes a lot through the novel. Reference Elie gave his father some of his portion of soup and bread Beginning Elie's father though his son was spoiled Elie's father cared more about the town than his family Middle End "I stood petrified. What had happened to me? My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked. I had watched and kept silent. Only yesterday, I would have dug my nails into this criminal's flesh." (Wiesel 39) "I was terribly hungry, yet I refused to touch it. I was still the spoiled child of long ago. My father swallowed my ration." (Wiesel, 42) "As for me, I was thinking about death but about not wanting to be separated from my father. We had already suffered so much, endured so much together. This was not the moment to separate." (Wiesel, 82) My father's presence was the only thing that stopped me. He was running next to me, out of breath, out of strength, desperate. I had no right to let myself die. What would he do without me? I was his sole support." (Wiesel, 86-87) "Don't worry, my son. Go to sleep. I'll watch over you."
"You first, father. Sleep." (Wiesel, 89) When Elie was being strangled his father helpped to get the guy off of him Elie woke his father up so the people wouldn't throw him off the train. "I knew that I was no longer arguing with him but with Death itself, with Death he had already chosen." (Wiesel, 105) "Since my father's death, nothing mattered to me anymore."
