As she passes Montag, she repeatedly says “poor family” and “everything’s gone”. Rather than caring about Montag who was about to be killed for having books, she is more worried about her walls and her ‘family’ being burned. Bradbury uses techniques such as repetition, extended sentences, and a distraught tone of voice to establish Mildred’s unhappiness. Ultimately, Ray Bradbury adequately examines the recurring theme of the repression of authentic human relationships through his use of extensive literary
Mr.Birling is suddenly interrupted when Inspector Goole arrives to interrogate the Birlings about the suicide of a working-class women called Eva Smith; whose death was led by a series of events. The Birling’s are consumed with lies, lack of responsibility and the certain manipulation /powerfulness of the Inspector. The Inspector is used by J.B Priestley to communicate that our actions affect each other, and throughout this play Priestley portrays the Inspector’s character as dominant and superior: “Because what happened to her then may have determined what happened to her afterwards, and what happened to her afterwards may have driven her to suicide. A chain of events” pg 14. In this quote the Inspector uses repetitive language to get his point across, and Priestley makes the Inspector seem wise and humble, due to the fact that the Inspector is practically the only person in that room that knows that everyone affected Eva Smith in their own way, and he is not pointing the finger at anyone, because he knows that will cause more chaos.
Along with it, Emily Grierson also evidently spends her life in detachment from others, thus, she is often misinterpreted by the townspeople, who only regarded her as the woman who lead such tragic and pitiful life, whereas she is actually quite drawn to death in her own conscious will, given that she had associated on how death itself could capture the essence of her departed father. Afraid to lose the subject of her dependency again, Emily slowly alters herself in the form of death – mainly signified by living in decay and disuse, in hopes that, like as death could consume one’s spirit in the end, she will also be able to preserve the essence of someone that is dear to her. It is being emphasized further in the ending, as it is being depicted how Emily’s attachment for her lover can
Death is a concept toyed with by many authors and script writers alike. Any character death is used as a plot point in a story to drive home some idea. While there are the occasional sadistic writers who seem to just want to make their audience feel pain, even those deaths have a purpose. Catcher in the Rye by what 's his face and Rebel without a cause, directed by someone, are no exception to the rule, as both feature two hard hitting death scenes. Although they differ in personalities, Plato and James Castle share key plot point,their deaths, to illuminate the idea that those pushed far and hard enough by internal and outside factors will always reach a breaking point.
Perhaps the most debated topic in our modern society, responsibility has remained a difficult aspect to portray. In "An Inspector Calls," a play by J.B Priestly, the suicide of an ordinary girl living in the lower class society named Eva Smith prompts an investigation that reveals how each member of the Birling family and Gerald bears some responsibility in her suicide. Through the effective usage of characters, imagery, themes and structural devices, the author J.B Priestly effectively presents the theme of responsibility in the play, "An Inspector Calls". One of the author's most prominent ways to present the theme of responsibility is through the realistic portrayal of our contemporary society. This realistic representation of society is
Obstacles and problems are part of life and everyone has to face them in order to lead a normal life. "Sweat" written by 'Zora Neale Hurston' and "A Rose for Emily" by 'William Faulkner' are the short stories of two ladies from different environments facing the same problem of a rough relationship and disturbed life. Looking into the characters, tone, and plot of "Sweat" and "A Rose for Emily", it can be seen that both the ladies have different approaches to tackle with their tragedies. Emily gets rid of her lover directly and disappears from the world whereas Delia left her husband to die intentionally and gets away from suppression. Emily is kind of anti-hero in "A Rose for Emily" whereas Delia is a hero in "sweat" as she has a positive approach.
The author of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain, once declared, “Never allow anyone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” In the poem “the bullet was a girl,” Danez Smith captures the effect of when one has lost love. Romance ends with a heartbreak and depression. The figurative language in the poem contributes a darker and deeper meaning to the poem. For example, the speaker metaphorically delineates his feelings, as “the bullet was a girl…” (4). The “bullet” has a negative connotation to it because it often is associated with gun violence, warfare, homicides, and death.
In The Guardians the focus too lies on a complex relationship between the author and Harris; however, the two tales differ in that Manguso approaches her tale through the tragedy of her friend’s death. This means that the stories about Harris are prompted by his tragic death, whereas in Revolution the tales came from the chronology of events. This sets drastically different
Editor Anna Quindlen wrote many articles and essays conveying her opinion toward the death penalty. Such as, “Death Penalty Fails to Equal Retribution” and “Public & Private; The High Cost of Death”. Although Anna Quindlen makes many valuable accusations regarding her reasoning to being opposed to the death penalty, she undermines the real purpose of the penalty itself. The Death penalty, is indeed necessary. Many of the accusations Anna proclaims permit to the emotions of the victims families that have been robbed of their loved one by the said killer.
We can look at Blanche’s husband death as a cause of her mental illness because she is haunted by the scene of Allan’s death in the entire play. And that’s how her grip on reality seems to slip from herself. She uses fantasy as magic that protects from reality’s harsh blow. Tennessee William uses Blanche’s fantasy to contrast
