In “Button,Button” the author Richard Matheson was showing a love that is complicated and misunderstood because during the story the end was not foreshadowed on who was gonna die, but it definitely foreshadowed the fact that the button would get pushed and someone would end up losing their life at random. During the story, Matheson shows the disconnect between the Norma the curious wife and Arthur the parted and distant husband in the way that they have little to no communication skills between each other, “Why wont you talk about it?, Norma asked, Arthur’s eyes shifted as he brushed his teeth.” (Matheson 4).

Otherwise, those stings of the past continue to haunt his/her life. With Henri Bergson, Ricoeur speaks of an unconscious duration of memory, which amounts to forgetting.
