I would first make a table of all functions to be plotted, and keep the
parameter value as the first item of a list,

Table[{a, 1/(a - x)}, {a, 0.4, 1.7, 0.2}]

and then apply the plotfunction (as a pure function) to the second part
('#2'), while passing the parameter a from the first part ('#1')

Apply[Plot[#2, {x, 0, #1}, 
    DisplayFunction -> Identity] & , 
  Table[{a, 1/(a - x)}, {a, 0.4, 1.7, 0.2}], 1]

Show[%, DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction]

yes, I love 'pure functions' ...
