(Happy Endings, 284), clearly showing the cause of death of Fred in this instance. Each of the six scenarios is linked together, as they all lead to “The only authentic ending… John and Mary die” (Happy Endings, 285). Atwood makes certain that the reader knows that both protagonists die to reinforce a significant theme of the story. It helps link the one ending of all six scenarios to real life, suggesting that the only ending everyone shares is death. The presentations of death in both “Death by Landscape” and “Happy Endings” contrast one another with the former; presenting death with uncertainty, compared to the latter, presenting death with utmost

When the speaker states, “ O let us”, he is welcoming the presence of death and whatever comes their way into the situation. He accepts the fact that they will die for standing up for what they believe in, and as long as they die a noble death, he is accepting that fact. These people have the courage to stand up to their oppressors, whether they are going to die or not. They are courageous enough to sacrifice their lives for what they believe to be right. The speaker then proceeds to imply, “The monsters we defy shall be constrained to honor us though dead ( Source B ).”
Nathanial Mendes 1/9/2017 Lit. of Survival – T.A. All code heroes have a strong perception of death. Death saturates their every action, or response because death is a finality. Therefore, a man must live now because there is no pleasantness after death, do your great act continuously, it is your only sense of gratification. Consequently, all heroes inherently are part of a scheme of simple gratification, devoting themselves to the physical torments in life. A hero should never fear only recognize death as it becomes an obligation to evade it at all costs.

Poe's Concept of Death is as a strong power that is not tangible that ends with people’s lives, no matter what. With the allegory he states that how strong is death's inevitability. He shows us that death is part of our unavoidable fate. Everyone will meet death sometime, no matter who we are or how much we try to avoid it, it will finish with us.

She seemed almost happy as she lay on the ground in her final moments. This leads us to believe that the subjects who underwent this metamorphosis, did so out their own free will. Those who underwent this transfiguration did so as a final stage of their life; a form of non-violent suicide. The stress and pressures of the world built up on them and using Gregor’s escape from this world as an example, they followed suit.
It is suggested that Euthanasia will provide 'Death with Dignitary '. I believe that every person has the right to die knowing that he or she is loved and that their doctors did everything they could to make them well and comfortable. I believe that palliative care is the best option for patients who want to die in dignity and we should instead think of ways of helping people who suffer which don 't involve encouraging them to end their lives. The Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities contains twenty basic rights, one of the rights being 'Your right to life ' where every person has the right to life and to not have their life taken. By allowing euthanasia into our country we are defying these basic rights.
There are many tragic reasonings through nature, where it may sadden a person or make a person happy.

In “The First Snowfall,” there is a broad understanding that is given to listeners to analyze that humans cannot care for their loved on who have passed, nature will. In “Thanatopsis” nature has the abilities to make us feel better by lightening out dark thoughts of death allowing us to understand that death is upon all, as we are not alone. In “The Chambered Nautilus” it gives us an understanding that nature remains with us and it tells us to make ourselves better than who we really are.
