Let go in ascending order, starting with the classics and closing with contemporaries. 


1. Hamlet 

By William Shakespeare, this is a classic opening of our list of recommendations, a classic play. The Ghost of Father guided his son, aka Prince Hamlet, to navigate and avenge his wrongful death. There is madness, drama, chaos, and salvation, but most importantly there is a Ghost who was once a father and remains a father even after his death. The play also has a message encoded, an undying paternal bond and responsibility of a son takes over in the absence of his father’s presence. 


It is intense, but it is too good to skip. Give it a try.


2. King Lear

By William Shakespeare, or we may take the liberty to call this play, Father and Daughters because it is exactly about a father and his daughters. King Lear has three daughters and made the mistake of not recognizing each of them as his blood and merely judging them based on their pompous compliments to win big inheritance and favor by giving false praises to boost his ego except for a daughter who took a road less traveled that cost her all the princely privilege. This is an eye-opening moral play. What happens to the rebellious daughter is only known to those who open the book, we are sure your father will love it, and you won’t be disappointed.



3. The Spanish Tragedy  

By Thomas Kyd, the apple does not fall far from the trees and this is indeed another version of Hamlet, but only this time the son is the ghost and the father is avenging the wrongful death of his beloved martyred son. This play also goes by another name, Heironimo is mad again, Heironimo being the father of the Ghost son. Just like a son will take responsibility for his father’s legacy, a father too will never give up to step up for his beloved son. These are so far our classic literature recommendations, let’s keep moving forward.


4. Brother Kamarazov 

By Fyodor Dostoyevsky, is an unstable emotional relationship between a father and his son how which further impacts the whole family dynamic through the father’s actions. It explores the moral and psychological question of father and son relationships. 

We came out of the classic zone yet so far from it, but surely we are reaching the contemporary literature zone, stay tuned.

5. Ghosts 

By Henrik Ibsen, explores the fundamental influence we receive from our parent figures. We do not only inherit their genes and their property and savings, but we inherit their Karma and why won’t we, why do we often miss on this part how a present shapes a future? This play is a must-read that reflects modern-day decadent households, where, having a family becomes a burden, and discarding the institution of marriage is portrayed as liberating, how many fatherless children are brought up from these misconceptions and how it is going to impact other generations of mankind. 

Having a father is a god-given birthright and having the chance to bring up children is also a god given blessing we must together remember.



6. Kite Runners

By Khalid Hosseini, is about father figures who stepped up.

It is a beautiful, historical, factual novel based on Afghani’s endeavors during and aftermath of the terrorist invasion, every beautiful thing was interrupted and everything left is only a memory if not record will be lost with the lives that are bound to meet death one day. How important it is in a father’s life to keep his sons around and make sure they are away from harm, and how important it is for the sons to reciprocate the act of service to their father. How important is the role of a father and his presence/showing up/stepping up even if he is not the biological father?

To amend a father’s mistake and forgive him for all the good things he has to go through for you is the picture you get to see vividly here. Fair warning, it consumes a lot of emotions but it won’t take much of your time for the words are fair to the readers.  



Nicolas Spark also has brought us many good novels from his own creations where he celebrates the importance of paternal bonding and the relationship between parents and their children, the struggle that comes out of trying to navigate through the hour of complications.


7. Two by two by Nicolas Sparks

It is a vivid depiction of the Modern single parent that comes with many things to confront, compromise, and resist all the highs and lows amidst a big setback in personal and professional space to be an active father figure and be involved in his daughter’s every aspect of growth, to not interrupt her building mindset due to his marital and work crisis. He has to evolve from a traditional breed earner’s role to a single who is very much an involved and active participant in his little girl’s life. It is easy to give up and say it was not easy to give up but what happens when you decide to remain responsible for what you have brought to yourself and the earth, it is no longer a story of everything is about me, it is more sort of not everything is about me anymore. 



8. And, The last song 

Get ready for another episode of more tears. This is the story of a divorced father and his kids who need different emotions and guidance based on their age difference. Even death cannot keep them apart.
