His reasoning to keep this name even after the midwife has told him he shouldn’t do it is that he had asked God to save his wife and his prayers were not heard, so he is now looking at his daughter as the one that sentenced his wife to death. But there is more to her birth than this, another aspect of it that shows that Morrison was making Pilate into a Christ figure. Pilate’s birth is a magical event just like the birth of Jesus. Pilate’s mother died
Margaret turns and looks at Dana, as if Dana is her slave, and orders her to “get him some water” (Butler 69). Failure to do so Margaret dismisses Dana to the cookhouse. Dana realizes that if she is stuck in the south she might as well be working. She was offered a tutoring job, Kevin disagrees with her decision. Dana says, “I’m here.
Quintana had been unconscious for days and was suffering from pneumonia and septic shock. Didion recalls that she was mixing the salad for dinner when she noticed her husband stop mid-sentence and slump over. Within an hour of calling the paramedics, John was pronounced dead (p. 22). Within an hour, her husband had gone from living and breathing in his living room recliner, to a death certificate marked 10:18 p.m. Immediately, Didion begins her quest for answers, explanations, and solutions; solutions that, in her mind, might bring John
He lifted his glass and drank it down in one swallow although there was still half of it left. He got up and went slowly to get himself another drink.” (Dahl 1) This quote shows that Mr.Maloney was stressed and did not take telling his beloved wife that he would be leaving her lightly. Mrs.Maloney getting the lamb leg represents her getting the news that Mr.Maloney would be leaving to a new and better life for him. The frozen lamb leg represents Mrs.Maloney trying to pretend nothing was wrong with their love and how she wanted to stay frozen in time. Unfortunately, cooking the lamb leg represented the end of her husband's life and their dying
They even go as far as to accuse her of being inclined to trouble like her father after they discover she buried her brother, Polyneices. However, as Antigone is led to her living tomb by the guards, the Chorus expresses sympathy towards her. After Creon receives advice from Teiresias, the Chorus insists that he take it, reminding Creon that Teiresias is never wrong. Creon finally agrees, but is too late. Because of the Chorus's initially submissive behavior, Antigone is left alone to defend her beliefs, leading her to her tragic death.
This took so long dude, and i got rolled by my mom last night haha. As much as he was devastated by decision the clan elders made with Ikemefuna, he didn’t want to show anyone that he was weakened by this choice of Ikemefuna to die. The elders to him that he didn’t have to be apart of killing Ikemefuna, but he declined and went with the others to kill him. He did this because he wanted to show everyone that he could lead the clan and that he would make any decisions by emotion. AKA he didn’t want to be called a pussy.
Her hatred towards Christianity allows to keep herself in check but in “Flesh and Blood” when she goes to see Sister Leopolda on her deathbed her trauma is manifested when she tries to prove her strength at whatever cost. “I would get that spoon,” shows how desperate Marie was to reclaim that power that Sister Leopolda had taken away from her when she was a child (Erdrich). But the most disheartening part of this story is that even on her deathbed Marie was still not able to reclaim her power. This scene serves as a metaphor to represent how native Americans are never able to get their strength back from the white
When Elvis was leaving for Maine, Portland he did not pack because of his depression (Peterson). On August 16, 1977 Elvis was found dead in his mansion in Memphis, Tennessee and at 3:30 he was announced dead at the age of 43 (Peterson, “Elvis”). Elvis had died from cardiac arrhythmia and later, the doctors found out that Elvis had taken ten drugs and four of them were toxic (Peterson). Elvis’ heart and liver were damaged from the years of the substances (Peterson). At Elvis Presley’s funeral there were 15,000 to 20,000 fans that were lined up from Graceland to the cemetery and later, there were about 50,000
She didn’t want her baby to die or to be sent to the Fringes but what she received from her sister was isolation (Wyndham 71). “So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less. You have produced a defilement.” Due to the laws, people had to report to the governor if they see anyone or anything is deviation, so in Waknuk, discrimination is always happening. (Wyndham 72). Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not.
In addition, Antigone has her own struggle, faceing her uncle King Creon, by herself. Moreover, Antigone was declared the death penalty, on behalf of giving her brother funeral honors. This is a very unruly move, because her brother is considered a traitor to the king and people, which ultimately means he shall not be buried. However, it shows King Creon that Antigone would do anything to modify the law, as well as risking herself, just so her brother has a proper funeral. To emphasize, Antigone responds to King Creon, “ If I die young, I say I’d gain something” (Sophocles 20).

A 15 year old boy with leukemia had just passed away in front of me and his mom. He was fine that morning, but then he suddenly started gasping, and was dead within few minutes. I just felt like I was blind; I couldn’t breathe. I ran to the supervisor (a nun sister), who was rounding with the main doctor. She told me to tell his mother not to cry loudly; that may disturb the rounds.
