Scott Fitzgerald's magnum opus, he plays out several deaths which play a important factor in the plot of the novel. Two significant deaths in The Great Gatsby extremely affected the plot and meaning of the novel. Myrtle Wilson's death caused by Daisy Buchanan jeopardized Jay Gatsby's life. Her mistake created a misunderstanding in the plot of the novel. All in all, Daisy's recklessness started the events that caused great suffering, destruction and distress of many characters.
“‘I’d rather die at sea, with on deep gulp of death, than die by inches on this desolate island here’’ (Odyssey 12. 377-378). Not only was this irony but a foreshadow of what was to come. The description of Odysseus’ ship being destroyed by Zeus is an epic simile and an epithet.
In A Paradise Built in Hell, Rebecca Solnit focuses on the occurrences of the aftermaths of five major North American disasters and how strong bonds within communities form because of those disasters. Each case study provides a concrete description of what surviving residents themselves understand to be an unusual sociological change arising in the midst of casualties, disorientation, homelessness, and significant loss of all kinds. Reflecting on the 1906 San Francisco earthquake; the enormous 1917 explosion in Halifax, Nova Scotia; the devastating 1985 Mexico City quake; Lower Manhattan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks; and Hurricane Katrina’s 2005 deluge of New Orleans, Solnit brings a new perspective to these heart-wrenching tragedies. Solnit tells many enlightening stories of altruism and courageous social action. Moreover, although providing insight on these tragedies, Solnit presents her case with a redundant political bias and can seem to show problems that were not there.
In Illuminae, the main character Kady flees her planet after it is invaded in the year 2575 with her ex-boyfriend Ezra and boards a refugee ship, where she encounters many obstacles. These include a war between two rival megacorporations, a conscious and sometimes deceitful AI, and biological warfare in the form of a plague manufactured by BeiTech Industries, the enemy megacorporation. The authors, Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, use Kady’s Hero’s Journey to develop the plot and show Kady’s growth. In particular, they use Crossing the Threshold when Kady and Ezra escape their planet and Tests, Allies, and Enemies when they meet and overcome the challenges mentioned above. Kady helps Ezra get on a refugee ship, the Hypatia, after BeiTech

The duo kill Brett, find the suitcase and are about to leave until a man hiding inside the bathroom attempts to kill the two. Though at point blank range, the man misses all 6 shots and the pair quickly neutralize him. Jules thinks it is a sign of god that he should stop living 'the life ' (The job of being a professional killer) and quits 'the life ' hoping to maybe travel to Europe or just go with where life takes him, while realizing all the people he killed and all the destruction he lay waste to.(Pulp) This example displays the third trait of heroism because though Jules 's job is to kill people, he eventually realizes that though he collects money and nothing disastrous has happened to him or any of his loved ones, that what he is doing is wrong.
When he saw the enemy car and the informer he didn 't hesitate to kill them. He knew they were threats and he understood he needed to shoot. His brain was ‘wired’ to kill the enemy and any threat was to be terminated. While reading you will notice that the sniper is a republican, while the barber is a revolutionary. Not only do they have different beliefs but they fight their battles differently.
THE TEMPEST – SHAKESPEARE 1. How does Shakespeare indicate the level of chaos in the first scene of Act I? This opening scene certainly contains spectacle, in the form of the howling storm tossing the little ship about and threatening to kill the characters before the play has even begun. The play begins with a “noise of thunder and lightning”. The first word, “Boatswain!” immediately indicates that the scene is the deck of a ship, and the characters rush frantically in and out, often with no purpose.
