If you take that the wrong way his death may seem like suicide suddenly, but from many other papers that is not implied. The majority think that it was just an unfortunate few events that led to his death. If Chris would have taken a few more resources his life possibly would have lasted longer than it did, and using his story wrote an inspiration book. But he died, so there’s no reason to play the game of “what-if” because it could go an infinite number of ways.
Also since the title of the story is called ¨August Heat¨ and the date of death on the gravestone is August 20th, one can only assume that James could possible be murdered. At the end of the story it says ẗhat James will leave in an hour and we're left wondering what he means by that. Will he be killed or will he say goodbye then leave Mr.Atkinson´s house unharmed? This makes the reader wonder the fate our protagonist as well as keep them on the edge of their seats until the very end. By withholding information on our possible antagonist, it makes the reader feel like Mr. Atkinson isn't a reliable character.
He thinks that if he dies like this, all is not lost and that, despite his reputation, he may still be admired for certain qualities. He also refuses to be affected by the death of this wife either. He says, “She would have died hereafter”. He pushes it to the back of his mind and focuses on the battle rather than Lady Macbeth’s demise. In Scene 8, before Macbeth is slain, the last thing he says is “Lay on Macduff, / And damn’d be him that first cries, ‘Hold, enough!”.

He was thinking about if he should just kill himself or if he should continue through with killing Claudius. He looks at both options all the way, if he kills himself he is scared “for in that sleep of death what dreams may come” (III.i.74), and if he lives he would still have to still claudius. He is scared because he doesn 't know what will happen to him if he dies.
They do this because it’s a tradition and they believe it to be the reason for their town 's prosperity. We read this story in class and watched a movie based off of it. There are some similarities but the two are very different.
The novel shows us survival at its highest peak and most people would describe it as brutal or even inhuman. Surviving is not only about getting through something challenging, but it is also about having to live with the memory of it. “For the survivor who chooses to testify, it is clear: his duty is to bear witness for the dead and for the living. He has no right to deprive future generations of a past that belongs to our collective memory. To forget would be not only dangerous but offensive; to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.”
Steve Jobs’ assertion, “ Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart,” is valid because by remembering that in the end, we will all die. We should not contain our way of thinking and how we want to live life.

Only a very sick bastard would come up with this idea. I would always choose to die slowly and painfully rather than living like this. I would’ve been dead a long time ago, if I didn’t have a plan. Rule Number 4: Don’t talk to Bob Who the fuck is Bob? – you would ask.
Ish’s views of civilization have changed heavily from the plague to his death; he has now given up on the tribe’s continuation and lost hope in what can still be done. Thoughts of members of the tribe, either current or foregoing, previously brought back robust memories, while closer to the culmination of the Tribe his memories faded and became dismissive. He views civilization as unworthy now, since he knows he is going to die soon and there is nothing to keep him abiding. Closer to the start of his book, “Suddenly he felt all civilization depended not only upon men but also upon these other things which had marched with him like kinsmen and friends and companions.” (120)
Throughout the play Antigone and Haemon urge Creon to reconsider his law and see that his views are not always right and a wise man considers others views and ideas as well.
