This chapter presents Irving Howe's 1982 essay “Reflection on the Death of My Father,” in which he talks about the death of his father in a deeply poignant, conflicted, and touching manner. He admits that he could not speak “words of love” because he did not love his father as a man, yet he was overwhelmed with emotion at the thought of his decades of suffering and endurance.
