Return to Babylon essay He would come back some day they couldnt make him pay forever But he wanted his child and nothing was much good now beside that fact He wasnt young any more with a lot of nice thoughts and dreams to have by himself He was absolutely sure Helen wouldnt have wanted him to be so alone The final paragraph in the story shows how much Charlie loved his daughter and how much he needs her to complete his life I feel that in Babylon Revisited Charlie was treated unfairly and should have won the custody of Honoria Charlies regret of how he lived in the past is proved repeatedly throughout the story and even with the hardship of losing his wife and daughter Charlie was still able to put his life back together The mistakes he made in the past were not all his fault there was a problem in the stock market that put a heavy burden on his shoulders He has done more than enough to show Marion that he has changed and is capable of taking care of Honoria However the story may also be a bit biased considering that the narrator may not be a reliable person There are also certain situations in the story which questions Charlies sincerity about how much he has changed I think that Charlies love for Honoria is the biggest reason for him to regain her custody Throughout the story Charlie has expressed how much he loves Honoria and how much he needs her in his life Honoria also expresses how much she loves her father and how much she misses him She tells her father more than once that she would rather live with him than with her Aunt Marion To separate a father and daughter from each other is both devastating and cruel It is hard to understand why Marion would not let Charlie have Honoria
