Once More to the Lake by EB White Once More to the Lake by EB White was an essay in which a father struggles to find himself The essay is about a little boy and his father They go to a lake where the father had been in his childhood years The father looks back at those years and tries to relive the moments through his sons eyes He knows he cant and has difficulty dealing with the fact that he cant go back in time EB Whites way of letting the reader know that the father is in a way depressed is through great detail and description The story mentions how the lake has changes since the father had seen it last How the once gravel roads have been paved over and the sail boats are now replace with boats with outboard motors As the reader one can sense a feeling of how the father isnt able to adapt to these changes The little boy in the story the son also doesnt seem to appreciate the lake as much as the father did when he was growing up Like how when he was a boy he would wake up early to fish Now the father wishes his son would do the same It seemed the little boy just too the trip for granted He didnt appear to be as appreciative as the father once was The father describes the view as pretty much being the same How things felt the same like the moss on his feet and such He didnt feel that the lake had changed any but everything around it did This is when the idea of a duel personality comes into picture The father can almost see himself as a child doing the things he wished his son would do When he was young he would get up especially early to fix his fishing pole and even help set the dinner
