...My Papas Waltz” by Theodore Roethke “My Papas Waltz” is an interesting poem by Theodore Roethke portraying the relationship between a father and his son. During the persona’s childhood, his father would engage him in a dance and even tolerate the small boy’s legs on top of his. He would recognize his father’s loss of stability amidst alcohol odor on his breath. But the determined father would do virtually anything in order to be seen as impressing him. Such dancing posed serious difficulty to Waltz. The two would engage in noisy games and do wild runs and jumps. In the kitchen, their stunts would set utensils falling from the shelves and annoy the mother. During the dances, the persona would...

One of the characters is the son, who narrates that the waltz his father is performing in the kitchen is not easy. If we consider waltz as a metaphor for relationship between his father and him, we can feel that the son is saying that he is having a hard relationship with his father. We find out that the waltz is actually a romp because it is causing dishes to slide off the shelves, but still the son is not feeling easy with it.

It is a relatively simple tale, told from the perspective of that child, who enjoys clinging to his father and dancing around the room. The surface meaning is just the description of that crazy dance, and the context in which it took place, but between the lines there are deeper meanings which reflect the complex relationship which the young boy must have had with each of his parents.

Since they were the breadwinners they were considered to be superior having an upper hand in all affairs. Women’s job was to look after their husbands’ and children’s needs and keep the house clean. Away from the Victorian ideals Dorothy Parker wrote the story “The Waltz” to show a more liberal urban life of America.

Online ten of the poem, the speaker tells us that he faced it on one knuckle. It symbolized how bloody and scraped the poet's hand is more likely from a struggle with his father or knocking it off a hard surface. To shade more light on the existence of violence throughout the poem, the speaker says, "You beat time on my head." The boy can be pictured clinging to his father as the watch bumps hard onto the boys head. It shows the actual body harm onto the boy. However, the boy is so naïve to an extent that he feels nothing wrong with what the father did to him. He doesn't picture it as a sinful act because he hasn't known anything else in his whole life apart from violence (Madden 126)....

Basically there is no body above states which make rules and insures their enforcement thus to achieve any outcome states impose their power on other states.
