The author of the book “Goodbye Christopher Robin” was born in 1882 and was a soldier under the first world war. The soldiers fought bravely in believing that is was the war to end all wars. The soldiers fought to their death and many of them sacrificed their lives. Without the fighters, the war could never have been succeeded. Despite the many fallen, there were also many survivors. A. A Milne is one of these, but he got traumatized for life. He saw a lot horrible and he probably lost many friends. Therefore he got traumatized for the rest of his life, just like many other soldiers. in fact, over 16 million military deaths. And in total, around 40 human beings lost their lives caused by this terrible conflict. Is was one of the deadliest conflicts in our history.
After Milne returned from the war, his normal life continued. He had family, job, and friends to take care of. But he was traumatized and could not control himself. He got easily scared, had though dreams, and problems with being focused. At the beginning of the movie, he tried to hold a lecture, but he did not manage to keep the focus on the task. This is mainly why the couple decided to have something good in his life, and something else to think about.
The characters in his father’s book were inspired by Christopher’s toys and teddy bears. This was very personal for the little boy. This was his own universe and his imaginary friends. Therefore he got mad when his father chared his own universe with the rest of the globe. In addition to having his toys in the book, the main character was Christopher himself. Therefore many wanted to meet him and earn money on him. This took away a big part of his childhood.
For me, it is important to be safe, and have many around me for support. It is also essential for me with something to do. This is also everything Christopher ever wanted from his parents. He wanted them to see him, to love him, and care about his life.
Christopher’s father had just been in war before he came to the world. This really affected Milne, and thereby also the relationship with his son. The boy looked up to his father, but on the other hand, he was busy with himself, he was strict, and used his son for his own carrier without consent. This led to a complicated relationship, especially as a kid, Christopher missed recognition from his dad. He was also angry at his dad for making a book about him. As he grew older, he could see why the citizens needed something to be happy about after the war, as a child book. Therefore he was not that angry at his father for making the book about him.
The boy was not always his father’s first priority, but the nanny, on the other hand, was almost always there for him. She cared about him and took him with on adventures, and she was there for him. She was alomsot like a mother for the boy. Their relationship did not change in particular, they almost became best friends.
Christoper went to a school with only boys. It was before the WW2, and it was pretty strict. Especially the boys who were different probably had a hard time. The boy got bullied for being Christopher Robin. He got pushed down the stairs and a hard time in general.
