Sydney E. McDaniel, Shawn's father, earned the Pulitzer Prize for a poem he composed about Shawn's sickness and the impact it had on his family. The poem explores Sydney's struggle to accept Shawn's condition, as well as the physical and mental suffering that seizures bring for both father and son.
He has been praised for its honesty and power. "Sickness" was selected by John Updike as one of the best poems of the 20th century.
After graduating from high school, Sydney went on to study English at Yale University. He later received his MFA from Columbia University.
Sydney is now an acclaimed poet and teacher. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife and their two children.
Here is an excerpt from "Sickness":
"Shawn," his father said softly, "you can't do this."
The room was quiet except for the hiss of the oxygen tank and the drip of water into a plastic bucket below it. Shawn didn't look up. His eyes were fixed on some distant point just beyond his father's shoulder.
"I have to, Dad," he whispered. "I want to."
His father reached out and gently squeezed his hand. "No, you don't," he said.
Sydney has damaged ribs and a split shoulder as a result of her fall, but her suffering is alleviated when she discovers she may collect $5 million. Please try again later. Jennifer overhears Kyle's voice while eating lunch with Megan. Kyle pays her a visit at her beach house and apologizes for the way he ended their Boston affair. He claims it was all business and that he has moved on, but Jennifer knows there's more to it than that. She also suspects that he was the one who pushed Sydney off the balcony.
After this incident, Jennifer decides to leave town because she doesn't want to be a burden to anyone. She asks Kyle to let her go without any problems, but he refuses, so she leaves anyway. Just before she goes, she calls Abe and tells him what happened. Concerned, he drives down to the beach house in order to help out. When he arrives, he finds Megan waiting inside alone. Afraid that she might see the body, he pulls over and waits for someone else to arrive. After a few minutes, Abe sees lights coming from the beach house and heads that way. There, he finds Kyle lying in pain next to Sydney's body. In shock, he returns home without saying a word.
Abe is furious when he finds out that Megan is still there by herself. He tries to talk some sense into her, but she won't listen. Instead, she goes outside and jumps into her car.
Sydney Morgan, Lady Morgan, nee Owenson (born December 25, 1776, Dublin, Ireland—died April 16, 1859, London, England), Anglo-Irish author most known for her personality rather than her numerous popular works. Morgan was the daughter of actor Robert Owenson. She married John Morgan, an Irish politician, in 1798. The couple had three children, two daughters and a son.
After her husband's death in 1816, she moved to London with her children. There she became involved with the artist Sir Henry Raeburn and began writing novels under the pseudonym "Edgar Huntly." Her first novel, Manners Makyth Man, was published in 1820. It was followed by another nine volumes over the next seven years. In addition to writing novels, she also wrote poems and plays that were performed by her father.
Morgan's work was extremely popular in its time and is still read today. Manners Makyth Man has been called "the first English detective story" because it features a character who solves crimes while developing relationships with women. The book was also an influence on Arthur Conan Doyle when he created his own version of the detective in A Study in Scarlet (1860).
Lady Morgan is considered one of the founders of crime fiction with her novel series featuring Edgar Huntly as well as other characters such as Simon Girty, Harry Gordon, and others.
Sydney persuaded Michael to assist her because she believed her marriage was in danger. She vanished, only to return and do time for faking her death. Sydney developed a serious drug and alcohol addiction as a result of the injuries she experienced in the tragedy.
