He realizes that “the secret of a good old age is simply an honorable pact with solitude” (199). He took his solitude to a new extreme when he decided to bar the door to his workshop and was never to be seen again except for the rare sightings at the street door where he would sit (228). Like with the ten-foot circle, Colonel Aureliano is using this self-inflicted isolation in his workshop as a way to separate himself from people that care for him and those that he used to love. Colonel Aureliano’s condition only worsens when his seventeen sons are hunted down and murdered; he had begun to develop a sort of love for his children and it is said that, like with the death of his wife, he was not filled with sorrow but instead experienced blind rage (240). This event worsens his incapability of love because just as he is starting to feel his own type of love for a group of people again, they are brutally taken away from him.
Night¨ to express his extreme depression and sadness. Michael R. Little says that the poem, ¨is a meditation on loneliness and isolation, centering on one man 's lonely nighttime wanderings and suggesting that his individual experiences represent the human condition.” Born on March 26, 1874, Frost didn 't always know he wanted to be a poet. He loved to write and did not decide to
Early on in the book, Eli actively avoids becoming one of them, but he struggles with this as Night goes on. He starts to have brutish thoughts as he sees another son abandon his father for the sake of survival, but quickly decides not to. However, Eli’s morality finally breaks with his father’s death. Although on the surface, Eli feels grief and wishes that his father could still be alive, within himself, Eli finds a feeling of relief, as if a burden had been lifted from him. This shows that the longer Eli spent in the concentration camp, the weaker his moral sense became.

In “Lee’s Eating Alone”, author Daniel Moeser argues that in the poem written by Li-Young Lee, the speaker has come to terms with his father passing away, and the end of the poem leaves the reader with a sense of fulfillment and hope. Moeser analyzes “Eating Alone” focusing on the tone, the pattern Lee creates, how the speaker talks about his father, and how the speaker has accepted the loss. The tone of the poem is overall “grief and loneliness” in stanza one and two (Moeser 118). In stanza one, the speaker is talking about how they pulled the last of the onions and how dead the ground looks (Lee 206). Stanza two continues with the grim feeling when the speaker begins remembering a time with his father out walking by the pears (Lee 206).

The date of his funeral was on the day of Dallas’ birthday. Though the day was full of mourning, I knew in my heart that my grandfather was now in heaven, looking down on all of us. Death is something that we all experience, yet cannot fathom it. We all mourn and we all grieve, and what I believe is different from what someone else may believe. Loss has taught me that everything happens for a reason and that God has a plan and a purpose for whatever path I may take in life.
He mourns the undignified death of the youth, like animals in a slaughterhouse, in the first two lines. The next couple lines tell of how they will not get rituals, prayers, or a “voice of mourning” because of their deaths. Instead, they get the sounds and rattles of rifles, the wailing of falling shells, and the sad bugles wailing from their homes. The rest of the poem transitions into grieving over the “doomed youth”. For example, he seems consolatory towards the fact that they will have no candles lit for them; instead the glow will be in their eyes.
No one said this would be easy for his dad or Danny. When he went back home he could see his dad was not doing well and it made him feel in a certain way sad. He said, “It was painful to compare this frayed version of my father with the optimistic, rejuvenated man he’d been the summer before… (p.21).” This reflects how Danny felt sorry about his dad, he loves his dad so much that watching him tired because of working in the food truck saddened him. His dad was so excited with his new business and getting sick will only make it run slow or even stop the new business. Danny did what he could to help his dad, even though working in the food truck was not a big passion of his he found some positive things about the job.
It also mentions, “anyone died” and noone stooped to kiss his face.” After that it goes on to say, “busy folk buried them side by side,” meaning that they died together. Mark from E. E. Cummings comments, “the example of ‘anyone’ and ‘noone’ [shows that] their lives are empty and meaningless as the mechanical ‘dong and ding’ of the clock.” Which shows that Cummings’ life was very dull and nothing really happened in his love life that made him happy. In the poem is states, “one day anyone died i guess”...using an uncapitalized ‘i,’that his strangely detached attitude reflects his own sense of...the overriding importance of love.” Marks from E. E. Cummings states, “Anyone and noone are lovers.” Cowley points out that in the poem it says, “noone loved him more by more,” and by noone he is talking about his wife. He also notes that “Cummings was happily married for thirty years...but the word ‘wife’ appears in none[ of his poems]” (Cowley). Clark suggests that, Cummings was “unloved” by the town; but this only made him want her even more.
