His popularity fluctuated but most of his most popular works were not like in the 20’s but went through a renascence and rose to an American Icon 50 Years past his time. A great example would be with his most famous novel: “The Great Gatsby”. This book is one of the most assigned books in American high schools and is one of the most read books from the 1920’s and “Fitzgerald knew that Gatsby was good, but reviews were lukewarm and sales were extremely disappointing”(Fitzgerald 3) this is proof that he is much more popular today than in the 1920’s. he had other works that came out throughout his life that were not regarded as even in his top 10 books but as time went to he had a renascence and they skyrocketed.

This acted as a catalyst in producing some of the most memorable pieces of work in the history of American literature. Even though these novels and poems have been written about a century ago, their universal messages about the American dream and the dangers of anything in excess are still relevant today.

If the brain does not have anything to occupy itself then a man or woman will go into a state of depression. Being isolated from the outside world for so long caused her brain to start hallucinating. Also, the author of the book “The Yellow Wallpaper” Charlotte Perkins Gilman stated “ I wrote the yellow wallpaper with its embellishments and additions to carry out the ideal…and sent a copy to the physician who so nearly drove me mad... it has to my knowledge saved one woman from a similar fate-so terrifying her family that they let her out into normal activity and she recovered.” A woman who had had the rest cure along with the narrator and the author has either driven them insane or to the borderline of insanity.
Dystopian novels have an entrancing factor that allows them to captivate the American public like no other genre. The mass popularity gained by these novels can be seen dating all the way back to 1950’s with the publishing of George Orwell’s 1984, and through the present day with the publication of various dystopian novels such as Divergent, Maze Runner, and The Hunger Games. The main reason why these dystopian worlds resonate with so many people is because they address present day problems in outlandish but conceivable ways, "whatever its artistic or philosophic qualities, a book about the future can interest us only if its prophecies look as though they might conceivably come true. "(Beauchamp).

Should the ending be determined by how the characters might have felt like, or the satisfaction/ feeling that the author what to convey to the reader? Then everyone’s idea of the book would be different. In only the case of the character there would only limited to who actually got a happy ending in the novel: only two characters out of the 15 or so had a happy ending.
Nevertheless, the patient’s health would also revolve around their current wellbeing and quality of life before and after treatment. An example of such would be end of life care. In Dax’s case, he was subjected to intense pain and suffering after the accident. Dax had also lost his legal authority to his mother, which gave the doctors full control to his treatment. The doctors may see that paternalistic care was for the greater good for Dax, Dax himself believed that living was an endless nightmare.
Making them prefer to contact other people in order to enjoy the stillness of life and its simplicity or to get rid of unbearable burdens. For example, When The Savage, John's mother died, Linda, he became angry in the hospital and then detained there but he managed to escape. After that, he moves to an abandoned place. unfortunately, he was desperate due to the lost that all hope, the negative impact of psychological leads to hang himself.
When you hear the word death or you hear that someone has died today in the news or on the television I know a lot of people think “Man, I feel sorry for the family that they have to go through that.” or they thank god that it was not them or their family members.” Sadly though people try to push away death and push away the fact that everyone dies at one point in time. This is even truer when they witness their own family member in the hospital with a critical condition that the doctors cannot fix even with modern medicines on the doctor’s side. Another such time would be when a person’s family member is diagnosed with an incurable sickness that is fatal.
This reading consisted of an excerpt from The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. In this excerpt the author has visited the home of the living relatives of Henrietta. They show distaste and skepticism towards her due to her being white and asking questions about their mother, Henrietta Lacks. However they seem to warm up to her and tell her about what had happened to their mother.

The law ABX2-15 legally assist patients to commit suicide with prescription to end their suffering with some requirements.

I really enjoyed this talk by Sherwin Nuland about how he became so severely depressed due to a bad marriage that even the doctors thought nothing could be done for him. They felt the only thing left that might fix him, was a pre-fontal lobotomy and thankfully for him and for us that did not happen. If he had had a lobotomy, I doubt we would have had the chance to hear that wonderful speech he just gave. Anyhow, I was aware that electroshock convulsive shock therapy is one of the last resort treatments for depression and that it can help those that are severely depressed when nothing else would work. In fact, my husband’s grandmother received a form of it called insulin shock therapy for her depression many decades ago.
Andrew Salon shared with the public how his best friend died screaming in his hospital pain because of his cancer but he didn 't want that to happen with his mother. His mother was given a lethal dose of Seconal which ended her life as she lived, with elegance he quoted. When someone is in so much pain that 's only direction is death, should they have the right to end their misery. Many do believe they do, only the patient is aware of the type of pain they are in, therefore they should be able to decided when they have had enough and relieve their pain with overdosage. While The atlantic debates on the fact that Americans should think again before pressing head the legalization of physician assisted suicide and voluntary anesthesia, many have firm belief that they should be given the choice if and only it involves a patient that is terminally ill .
Startled by the expression of distress on his pale face, she suddenly broke off.” In this quote, Huxley shows how the savage caring for his dying mother is difficult to understand. The nurse believed he was there to find out about the centers, but he was there to see his mother before she passed away, and that confused the woman, because death is normal and is accepted. No one is saved. When they’re dying, they’re allowed to die.
