As he recalls the event, the audience receives insight into how each human perceives death differently, and the ways in which they live according to this. The nature of life and death is observed in “The Jade Peony” by Wayson Choy, using eloquent expressions of the way in which one can come to understand death, the acceptance of it, and the meaning that can be held once someone has passed away.

Every person alive today is bound to come across death at some point. Death is an inevitable part of life. It’s hard to make peace with the fact that someone you love is gone. Mourning can be a slow and painful process; however, this process differs from person to person.

Every human has a different approach when enduring the loss of a loved one. In Kate Chopin’s, The Story of an Hour, Louise Mallard received the news of her husband death. During this time, widows normally grieve for a long period, but Mrs. Mallard is an atypical widow.
