Joe went from being an enviable father and husband, and even Mr. Slade’s former business partner, to the town drunk and an absent father. His mother warned him about his fate if he continued to drink, like his own late father, but he felt that a few drinks would not cause any issues. Little did he know that a few drinks would turn into endless nights of drinking, and the biggest tragedy of his life; the death of his daughter. His daughter, worried sick about him, went to look for him at the tavern so they
Whitman’s poem states: “I will scatter myself among men and women as I go, / I will toss a new gladness and roughness among them…” and “Now if a thousand perfect men were to appear it would not amaze me, / Now if a thousand beautiful forms of women appear’d it would not astonish me.”, which describes open Dean’s sexuality with men and women who he meets on the road. His temperament is what also differs from the other characters; Dean cheats on his wife multiple times, he’s a constant nomad who is unable to settle in one place or with one woman. In Mortenson’s article “Beating Time: Configurations of Temporality in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road”, he describes, “Dean is frenetically living in the moment, trying to stay within the ever-unfolding horizon of the ‘now’....Dean accepts the belief that life must be lived in the present and practices this knowledge by filling each of these moments with as much activity as possible…” (p. 56). Although Dean’s perception of life is to live on the edge, nomadic and ever changing, he has no regard for the feelings of others. Even as his friend, Sal, lies dying with a fever in Mexico, he abandons
This is stated in “After her father 's death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all.” In addition, Emily developed a compulsively possessive and later deadly love over her sweetheart, Homer Barron. A man considered lower class to Emily who also had an attraction to men. This is demonstrated in “ "She will persuade him yet," because Homer himself had remarked – he liked men, and it was known that he drank with the younger men in the Elks ' Club – that he was not a marrying man.” The compulsive and powerful love can be shown later in the story when Emily poisons Homer with arsenic to prevent him from leaving her. The constant theme of death Faulkner reflects throughout the story is what displays gothic literature in this corrupt tale. Furthermore by applying death, the author is able to create an ominous atmosphere.

Jean, I agree with your response and I aslo think Curley 's wife is very flirtatious around other men because her husband doesn 't give her attention. Curley 's wife can behave carelessly because there 's no other female around, she feels lonely and has no one to talk to. A good example of this situation can be on page 78 when Curley 's wife was talking about her violent husband. Caroline, I agree with your response. Back then there was racial inequality.

This all furthers Chbosky’s message that rape doesn’t always happen in a dark alley with a hooded figure like it does in the movies, that sometimes it can happen between people who appear to be in love. Other instances include when Charlie walked in on his sister and her boyfriend having sex, when he watches his friend hook up with numerous men, and when he remembers that he was molested by his aunt as a child. Each of these situations are explained in detail, not sensitizing any of them in the least. These instances have caused many people to deem the entire book as inappropriate and even borderline
