Relationship Between Father And Son ..
The relationship between the two was like one of father and son
'Daddy' self-consciously exploits the linguistic primitivism of the 'unleashed tongue'through parody voodoo rituals. The father becomes a scapegoat, ritually dismembered intometonymic body parts such as foot, toe, head, mustache, blue eye, cleft chin, bones,heart, and resurrected in a bewildering variety of guises: black shoe, 'ghastly statuewith one gray toe', 'panzer-man', teacher, devil, black man, Teutonic vampire, and,finally, Freudian father of the primal horde murdered by his sons. The original of 'Daddy'is irrevocably lost; it is the symbols of the (dead) father, his law, which the speaker isaddressing: 'And then I knew what to do. | I made a model of you, | A man in black with aMeinkampf look.' The transformations of the father are matched by the daughter, whobecomes, in succession, a white foot, Jew, pupil, gipsy, witch, and doll with a 'prettyred heart'. The violent symmetry and parallelism of the victim-oppressor scenario recallsTheodor Adorno's claim, in 'Elements of Anti-Semitism' (1944) that the Fascist projectsthe impulses he cannot accept as his own on to his victim. It is his similarity to the Jewwhich arouses the paranoid rage of the anti-Semite and turns the oppressed into anoppressor. The preverbal language of mimicryof primitive gesturebecomes thetabooed sign of the Jew, marking him as the scapegoat. In 'Daddy', the oppressiverelationship between father and daughter is seen as part of a larger process ofscapegoating at work in history and language alike:
