In life, any breakup makes people heartbroken and sobbing, it’s an unwilling separation of love and intimacy because of different reasons, that separation becomes the way most reasonable solution. Of which perhaps the most painful is the prospect of a breakup of fathers and mothers who inadvertently cause their children, innocent children who do not understand what separation is, to suffer pain and shock. Big in life, but like Thanh in the short story The parting of the sobbing dolls is a “catastrophe”.
The story takes place in a very sad situation, the parents of two children, Thanh and Thuy, are divorced, the mother has the right to raise the younger brother, Thuy, and Thanh is older, so she lives with her father. The two poor children did not have the right to choose their own lives, had to be separated in tears. The title “Farewell of the Dolls”, is a metaphor for the parting of the two children, the doll as well as those two children, they are not at fault, it is the adult’s fault but the ears The disaster fell on the heads of children and inanimate dolls, but because Thanh and Thuy broke up, they also had to be separated. It is a chain of events. Giving such a title both impresses readers and causes people to think deeply about the actions of people and fathers who have indirectly left suffering to their children. how are you.
The story has the appearance of two main characters, a brother named Thanh, a younger sister named Thuy, the whole story and character’s psychological development are shown through the brother’s point of view in the first person. . That is completely reasonable because Thanh has grown up, has understood the story, under his observation, Thuy’s character is revealed more clearly in both inner and action, making the story more realistic and touching. . Thuy is a good girl, skillful, loves him very much, she is still young, so she still can’t believe that her parents broke up, she is going to have to leave her brother and father. So all her feelings were expressed, Thuy was terrified, desperate and helpless, at that age she could only cry, that cry “sobbed, angry” all night, cried so much that “the eyelids were swollen”, the eyes that were usually alert and mischievous, now only had a deep sadness. Maybe she still can’t accept this suffering, the family is already very peaceful.
The parting like a nightmare came, causing Thuy to become more silent, it seemed that her inner self had changed, was more mature, this shock was so painful that she became dull and lethargic. When it comes to sharing toys, which are the things children care about the most, but Thuy doesn’t care anymore, Thuy gives everything to him, because Thuy loves him, the family is broken, toys have no meaning anymore, Her eyes kept “gazing into space, occasionally hiccuping softly”, a scene that made people’s hearts tighten. But only when Thanh splits the “Bodyguard” with the “Little Sister”, Thuy immediately changed her attitude, the girl “howled with anger”, said as if shouting “You divided the Bodyguard again. Why are you so evil?”. Maybe many people think it’s a childish act of a child when something is not right, but that is not the case. Thuy has been trying to control her emotions since yesterday’s crying and is trying to accept the truth, but Thanh’s actions have broken that disguise, because those dolls represent the love of two people. Brothers, who have been close for a long time, now Thanh and Thuy have to part, but Thuy does not want to see the dolls also have to part, because they have no fault at all, it is cruel to do so. The girl’s words seem to be like a deep reproach for the actions of her parents, why her parents broke up but also forced the Thuy brothers to break up, so heartless. But Thuy is also afraid because if she lets her bodyguard follow her, who will watch his sleep. Especially for Thuy’s thoughtful, considerate and filial piety, it is also reflected in the fact that she wants to greet her father before leaving, but sadly, the father is still absent.
The two brothers walked hand in hand to school, letting Thuy say goodbye to the school, her and her friends. Thuy did not want to leave the place she has been attached to since birth, so all the way “my eyes kept staring painfully at a tree or a certain roof”, to engrave in Looking at those very familiar images, Thuy is afraid that tomorrow she will go far away, Thuy will forget, she will no longer remember this place. Stepping to school, familiar things such as stone benches, school grounds, the scene of a teacher giving a lecture suddenly made Thuy burst into tears. It turned out that Thuy would not be able to go to school anymore, but had to enter a living life with her mother in the countryside with a basket of fruits, the separation of her parents caused Thuy to fall into such a deadlock. Thuy is still very delicate, for fear of affecting the class, Thuy’s last sentence seems to have marked an important milestone in the change in her soul “Well, I welcome you to stay. All my friends go”, so this is the first division in Thuy’s life, with her, with friends, with school.
Canh Thuy officially broke up with Thanh, making people sobbing. The girl, after much thought, finally had to accept the separation of the Bodyguard and Little Sister, because most importantly, she cared about her brother more than anything. He also specially advised his brother “Whenever my shirt is torn, I will find you, I will patch it up, brother, …”. It can be seen the deep affection of the two brothers Thanh and Thuy, especially the love and filial piety to Thuy’s brother. At the end of the story, little Thuy still doesn’t want Bodyguards and Little Sister to leave each other, that’s the attachment in her heart, it’s a symbolic image of the feelings of the two brothers. Thuy made Thanh promise not to let the two dolls leave each other, as a commitment of the two brothers’ stable feelings, even though they were apart, they still remembered each other.
In the story, the details describing the inner character of Thanh are very few, because Thanh plays the role of the narrator, the observer of everything. However, through Thanh’s words and actions, it is easy to see that Thanh is an understanding child with mature thinking. Thanh tried to create a strong cover for himself, restraining his emotions “biting his lips so that he wouldn’t cry out loud”, even though his heart was in pain, “tears kept pouring out like streams, wet both his pillow and his wings. sleeve”. Thanh compared the fact that his parents broke up, and the two Thanh brothers had to be separated from each other as a “catastrophe”, just hoping it was a dream, not reality. It proves that compared to Thuy, Thanh is also in great pain, Thanh’s pain shows up in a bitter smirk, when Thanh remembers about Thuy letting her bodyguard watch the night for her to sleep. Thanh loves his sister very much, sharing toys is also devoted to her, her eyes are full of pity when she sees her father coming home. In the whole story, Thuy’s inner world is described very carefully and in detail thanks to Thanh’s earnest love for his sister. If Thuy tries to look carefully at each scene in the streets, to engrave it in her mind, Thanh spends most of her time watching her sister, with loving, pitiful, painful eyes. Just like Thuy, Thanh is trying to carve the image of his sister into his heart. He is afraid that distance will make his brother’s feelings fade away, so he must remember every moment of being with Thuy. At the moment of parting, Thanh’s strength was finally broken, he cried and sobbed, promised not to separate the dolls from Thuy, helplessly watching his mother and sister leave. The ending of the story forever leaves readers with unspeakable emotions, sadness and touching for the feelings of two brothers before the reluctant separation, but the perpetrators are adults in the family. .
The farewell of the dolls is a very poignant and touching short story about sibling love in the family, about the pain and sadness of being separated from each other. From that, each of us has learned a profound lesson about family affection, let’s cherish the loved ones by your side. At the same time, parents must be aware of what they do, not because of their own selfishness that causes their children to suffer as deeply as two characters Thanh and Thuy in the story.
So far, I have read many literary works with images of young children, such as the sisters Lien in Two Children (Thach Lam), Cai Ti in Turning Out the Lights (Ngo Tat To)… But I am most impressed by the image of two brothers Thanh and Thuy in Khanh Hoai’s short story The Farewell of Dolls.
Thanh is a very caring brother, taking care of his sister. He always pays attention to help her study, especially, every afternoon, he always picks up his sister and returns home with her. Because I love you so much, when I knew that I had to leave you because I followed my mother to my hometown, Thanh cried. However, because he was afraid that he would know that he would be worried, he bit his lip to keep from crying out loud, but tears flowed like a stream, soaking both the pillow and the sleeves of his shirt. In Thanh’s mind, there is always a desire, that this is just a dream. Until the last moments before parting, Thanh, even though he was very sad, still thought about you, not thinking about himself. Thanh decided to leave all his toys to him, including the Bodyguard. Even if he didn’t have a Night Guard, he might have nightmares while sleeping. Thanh took the time, took Thuy to school, and let her say goodbye to teachers and friends. When he saw her sobbing, Thanh was extremely miserable and sad, like the person who had to leave his friends and teachers was him. And the pain of separation was pushed to the end, when Thanh watched in silence as he got in the car and followed his mother to his hometown. He was desperate to the point of lethargy, his mouth crying, his feet buried in the ground, not knowing what to do now. Just that much, is enough to express the deep feelings that Thanh has for his sister, along with his poor situation.
As for Thuy, like her brother, she is an obedient and loving child. Since birth, Thuy has always lived with him and his family. I have always loved my brother very much. Once, I brought a needle and thread, ran to the football field to patch your shirt right there, lest you come home, you will be scolded by your mother. Once again, to help Thanh when he slept without nightmares, I armed the Bodyguard so that he could watch the night for him, then when it was morning, I brought the Bodyguard back to Little Sister. This action is repeated every day. Therefore, when she heard that she had to leave him to return to her hometown with Thuy’s mother, she suddenly shivered, terrified and desperate. I cried all night, always like a lost soul. And even more painful, from now on I will no longer be able to go to school. How sad it is when I have to leave my teachers, friends and books to go to the market to sell fruit. Thuy’s situation really makes the reader shocked and mournful. When because of the breakup of the family, even at a young age, I had to leave school to enter a harsh life.
In the text The Farewell of the Dolls, writer Khanh Hoai built and portrayed clearly and honestly the close and enduring brotherly affection of two brothers, Thanh and Thuy. Along with that, it has deeply recreated the pain of children when the family home was broken, suffering the pain of separation and separation. From there, affirming the importance and desire for a happy home of young children. So that there are no more unhappy children like Thanh and Thuy.
The farewell of the dolls composed by Khanh Hoai has left deep impressions and emotions in the hearts of readers. Reading the work, we will never forget the image of Thanh and Thuy, two poor and pitiful children who had to be separated because of adult problems.
First of all, Thanh is someone who has a deep love for you. In the days of family harmony and peace, he always loved and spoiled me, picked me up every afternoon from school, held hands and talked. Until the days when the family was about to be separated, each brother and sister fell in love with him even more deeply. With the soul of a sensitive child, although he tried hard, Thanh still cried all night, until both knees were wet. When dividing toys, Thanh gave everything to him: “No more dividing, I give you all”. Then pray that all this is just a dream, after this dream everything will be back to the way it was. Thanh is also a boy with a sensitive and delicate soul. In detail Thanh commented on the change of the surrounding scenery: “The scenery is still the same as yesterday, the day before yesterday, but why did the disaster hit my brothers and sisters so heavily” or “When I got out of school, I was surprised to see it. People are still walking normally and the sun is still shining yellow on the landscape.” Those thoughts show more clearly Thanh’s delicate sensibilities, and at the same time, the contrast between the exterior and the mood makes the reader more pitiful and more sympathetic to the unfortunate fate of the two brothers.
I am not only impressed with a brother – Thanh who loves and pampers you, but also remembers a Thuy – a younger brother who has a pure and kind soul and also loves and cares for him.
First of all, Thuy is a caring girl who always cares and loves him. With skillful hands, she had perfectly mended his torn shirt; In the evening, after studying, he “armed” the bodyguard and put it on the nightstand to watch his sleep. She is also a child with a sensitive soul, in the face of a family situation that has to be separated, brothers have to leave each other, Thuy cried all night, her eyes were puffy, as if she lost her soul, and she staggered like she was about to fell when mom asked to share the toys. How can I live a normal life when I’m about to part with the person I love the most? The author was very subtle and profound when accurately capturing the emotional levels of the character.
When dividing toys in Thuy’s mood, there was a contradiction: on one hand, Thuy howled in anger when he left the doll on both sides, on the other hand, he was worried that if he left two dolls with him, who would take care of him? give him a good night’s sleep. Then in the end I decided to leave the two dolls to you, so they never had to be apart. Thuy’s thoughts and actions in dividing the dolls show that she is an innocent and pure child who not only loves him but also has a great altruistic heart. In this situation, Thuy is a very pitiful child, she does not think for herself, but only thinks about others, for others. In the last hours of the separation, Thuy made a very unexpected action. Thuy got out of the car and ran to the bed to put her baby next to the bodyguard. Although the two brothers had to part, their feelings were inseparable.
Thuy’s fate is even more unfortunate than her brother, perhaps the brother who lives with his father can continue to study, but with Thuy that cannot happen. During the farewell to the class, when the teacher gave her a pen and notebook, Thuy refused to accept it, the reason she gave made the reader cry: “Ma’am, I don’t dare to admit that I can’t go to school anymore.” “My grandmother’s house is far from the school. My mother said she would buy me a basket of fruit to go to the market to sell.” Her situation is so pitiful, Thuy was not only robbed of her happy family life, her beloved brother, but she was also robbed of her right to study and play – the most basic right of every child. I soon had to rush into life to earn a living.
To create the success of the work, Khanh Hoai has flexibly combined artistic tricks. First of all, the choice of narrator, taking a brother and an insider to witness and understand the pain of separation, thereby sincerely and touchingly expressing the painful and pitiful thoughts and feelings of the human being. object. Building a unique story situation, borrowing the story of two brothers Thanh and Thuy having to separate, both expressing the pure child’s soul and expressing the pain of children when the family nest is broken. The art of analyzing and describing character psychology is unique and suitable for children’s psychology.
Thanh and Thuy are representative images of many children in society, soon suffering from family separation. Through these two characters, author Khanh Hoai also sends readers meaningful messages: Each person’s family home is extremely precious and worthy of respect. Therefore, each family member, especially parents must try to preserve, should not for any reason damage those natural and pure feelings.
“Children like young leaf on branches
Knowing how to eat, how to sleep, how to study is good.”
Those are the words Uncle Ho said about children. But in real life, there are still many children who have to live in a situation of lack of love due to their circuTaxances. The image of those poor children was partly conveyed by writer Khanh Hoai in the work The parting of the dolls, through the image of two characters Thanh and Thuy.
Thanh and Thuy are two brothers who love each other very much. From small to large, they are always beside each other, helping and sharing. Thanh is always interested in my studies and always picks me up every afternoon. Thuy always cares about him, sometimes even bringing a needle to the stadium to patch his shirt. The two brothers are always attached to each other, carefree, pure.
Yet, the separation came naturally. Both parents are divorced. So, the two brothers were forced to separate. They have to endure the pain of separation from loved ones. A family of four is now split in half. Thanh will no longer be able to live with his mother and sister. And Thuy will not be able to live with her father and brother. The two brothers have always been next to each other, but now have to part, not knowing the day they will meet again. How painful.
When they learned that the two brothers had to be separated, both Thanh and Thuy were extremely surprised and miserable. Thuy involuntarily trembled, terrified and desperate. I cried all night. Always like a lost soul. As for Thanh, I bit my lip to keep from crying out loud, but tears kept pouring out, soaking both my pillow and my sleeves, thank goodness this is just a dream. These details describe to the very end the pain and despair of innocent souls who should only know how to eat, sleep, and study. How pitiful.
The spiritual brotherhood between Thanh and Thuy is clearly shown through the scene of the two children’s toys. Toys are very important for young children. However, Thanh decided to leave all the toys for me. Cn Thuy, even though it is very painful, but always thinks about him, afraid that if there is no Bodyguard, who will let him sleep. Although they were very sad, crying until their eyes were swollen, but the two brothers always thought wholeheartedly for each other. That’s why, the reader is even more sad and miserable before the scene where Thanh stands as if he is rooted to the ground, watching him and his mother leave.
The image of two brothers Thanh and Thuy represent many of the poor fates of children in society. When they are not living in the happiness and reunion of the family home. Always have to endure sadness, loneliness, and distance in life. The work “Farewell of the Dolls” conveyed a deeply human message: Let the children live innocent, carefree, and happy lives with their age. Don’t do anything to make them suffer like Thanh and Thuy.
The story “Farewell of the Dolls” by Khanh Hoai is a very good and meaningful work, the story is not only touched by the innocent and warm affection of two brothers Thanh and Thuy but also takes away the country. the eyes of many readers before the sudden separation between the two brothers, between those two pure and pitiful souls.
Dolls are inherently just inanimate toys, they do not know how to express emotions, but humans are different, people have countless different emotions, happy, sad, and standing in front of each situation. Different people’s moods are often different. And often circuTaxances will govern people’s moods and emotions. Thanh and Thuy are the same, they are two brothers who not only know how to love and care for each other, but also really want their parents not to break up so that the family can avoid breaking up.
Thanh is a very gentle and loving brother, pampering his sister, even though he only has a few toys, he still wants to give it all to his sister. As for Thuy, although she was still very young and childish, Thuy’s actions came from the most sincere feelings, when he went to play football and unfortunately broke his shirt, Thuy brought a needle to the stadium to patch it. shirt for him, afraid that he would be scolded by his mother, his sister loves him very much but is also skillful. Then with the thought that “arming the Bodyguard” placed at the bedside to protect him in his dreams, helping him not to have nightmares are also the most genuine feelings.
Thuy expressed her unbearable attitude when she saw Thanh dividing the two dolls, even more could not help herself when she knew that she was about to leave her brother, the younger sister cried all night, crying when her eyes were swollen. puff. Two brothers Thanh and Thuy are too young to endure such feelings, they are just like emotional dolls, but the two brothers are not the ones who decide this separation, it is the two brothers. parents, since then the family is broken, brothers are separated, the happy days and filled with memories also disappear.
When faced with an even scarier truth, which is that Thuy can no longer go to school, both Thuy and Thanh wish that this was not true, only that their home would not be broken. The emotions of adults and children are very different, when having to say goodbye to the people they love the most, it is the most painful and heartbreaking moment. The breakup has hurt two souls, leaving a great pain and loss in their hearts that nothing can heal or make up for.
Two brothers, Thanh and Thuy, must be far apart, but make sure that they always remember each other, remember the good memories together. Thuy made Thanh promise never to leave the two dolls apart and that also means that the two brothers will always remember each other no matter where they are. The story is a lesson about true and profound brotherhood, leaving in the reader’s heart an unforgettable impression.
Khanh Hoai’s “Farewell of Dolls” is a beautiful and meaningful work. It touched me not only because of the innocent and cute feelings of two brothers Thanh and Thuy but also because of the sudden separation between the two brothers, two sensitive and pure souls.
It is often said that dolls never know how to cry. A doll is just an inanimate object. But flesh and blood people are different. They can be happy, sad, angry and cry when they encounter certain events or losses in life, they can also cry when they are happy. Thanh and Thuy are also such people. The two brothers not only love each other very much but also want their parents not to break up so that in those two little hearts they won’t sob many times. Thanh is an older brother who loves his sister to the fullest, even though their toys are not much, he still dedicates all toys to his innocent sister. Thuy is still young and quite childish, but the act of “arming the bodyguard”, put the head of the bed to watch the night for him so that he does not dream of ghosts coming from brotherly love. Thuy couldn’t bear to see Thanh divide her two dolls, bodyguard and baby, even more when she knew that in just a short time, she had to leave her brother. I adore and love you with all my heart. The two brothers are just two dolls with emotions that have to part with each other when they are too young to cling to a corner of the sky full of echoes and memories. The two of them were not the ones who decided the breakup, but the divorce decision of their parents made them separate from each other, away from the happy days and full of beautiful fairy-tale memories.
When she heard about it, she and Thuy’s friends were heartbroken, even more heartbroken when faced with the harsh truth that from now on, Thuy would no longer be able to go to school. The truth is the truth. I only wish one thing is that the small nest will not be broken and the smile will reappear on the lips of the two poor brothers. Adults can never understand what children think when they are young, but they have to see their parents leave each other and have to say goodbye to the people they love the most. The two dolls also had to witness the heartbreaking scene. I don’t know if they would cry if they had to part with each other after a long time together, playing with two adorable and cute people like two angels. Maybe they won’t cry because dolls don’t have tears. But the breakup hurt Thanh and Thuy, leaving in their hearts a huge wound that nothing could heal. Even so, life continued to flow, “people were still walking normally and the sun was still yellow covering the landscape”. The two of you may be apart, but I am sure of one thing that they will always remember each other, remember the childhood sky with familiar scenes, forever not forgotten. I felt my heart hurt when in the moment of saying goodbye, Thuy made me promise that I would never let the two dolls sit apart, just like those two beings will forever follow each other on every road. life.
The story is a lesson about brotherhood, leaving in the reader’s heart an indelible impression. What’s wrong with the doll that has to be broken up? The doll still wants to be happy in the loving arms of her parents. The painful and emotional parting of two babies in the story will probably remind us that: Family holds an important place in everyone’s heart. To protect and preserve family happiness, there is nothing more than we must not let such separations happen so that children naturally suffer irreparable losses.
