One thing that these quotes suggest is that (at the beginning, at least)
there is more enmity on Horn's part than on Sinew's. Horn depicts himself
as a father who just won't give his son a chance, who already knows before
the test comes that Sinew will fail. This might be based on past
experience; in fact, Horn intimates to us that it is. But it's hard to see
how Sinew could have earned back his father's friendship and confidence
given this attitude on Horn's side. So I am under the impression that this
hatred and distrust is Horn's doing at some level. But why?
