In Porphyria’s Lover, the only reference we have to the supernatural is towards the end. After Porphyria’s lover murders her, he makes a frightening reference towards God, “In one long yellow string I wound/ Three times her little throat around, /And strangled her. No pain felt she;/ I am quite sure she felt no pain/…And thus we sit together now,/And all night long we have not stirred,/ And yet God has not said a word!”(39-42,58-60). In Porphyria’s Lover, we see Porphyria’s murderer mock God for not taking any action against him for the murder that he just committed against his own lover. All night long he sits with the women he has just murdered and God never sends down any punishment on him for it.

In his comedic novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey uses Chief Bromden, a Native-American man suffering from schizophrenia, to tell the story of an intense struggle for power between the Big Nurse and a new patient. Named McMurphy, this admission brings an aspect to the ward that is noticeably absent under the Nurse’s reign: laughter. The introduction of humor to the ward disrupts the atmosphere of conformity and submission crafted the Big Nurse. Throughout the book, the two engage in a series of battles as the Big Nurse attempts to prevent the McMurphy and the rest of the men from laughing and while more abstractly aiming to eliminate their autonomy. Battling back, McMurphy tries to teach the men that they themselves can use laughter to fight back against

Miss Emily Grierson’s father controls her and her love life, pushing away all people until he dies and Emily is left alone.

Mcmurphy, who challenges the ideology of the ward’s stern, abusive, and dictator-like head nurse, Mrs. Ratched. Throughout the novel, many instances of violent and inappropriate content occur.

In both Brave New World and today’s society, there are two completely different views on death. In Brave New World, we see people sixty and over going to an apartment block to die because they serve no purpose, yet in America, we support people once they become a senior

This makes the reader feel disturbed because of the stark contrast. As we know Elsie to be Deborah’s sister, and the Hospital of the Negro Insane to be very discriminatory, disgust turns to pity or Elsie. This pity also carries over to Deborah, who has to hear, and bear, this terrible news. In this, Skloot gracefully developed her pathos appeal and a sense of pity and distress in the reader. While at the Hospital for the Negro Insane, Skloot finds a Washington Post article on the Hospital for the Negro Insane, where Elsie had lived for the majority of her life.
