My mother drove me out to the parking lot. I went to the driver's seat, and my mother with terror deep in her heart, went to the passenger's side. Despite being absolutely terrified and completely unprepared, I began to drive. Turns out, I shouldn't have started driving at all. Not because I wasn't ready or I was too afraid to drive, but because I forgot to close the door to the car.
We were best friends, so we shared every secret. When the police officer told me she died from suicide I had trouble believing it because she would have told me or at least left something behind. All that was left was the gun in her hand and a red skittle. I find it ironic that there was a skittle in Avery’s room when she did not even like skittles. Anyways, I am in Avery’s room right now and I am staring at the place she died.
As a result of rumors and revenge in Hamlet, self-murder is a consequence. For example,Gertrude and Ophelia, felt that suicide was the only way to escape the pain and craziness they experienced. When people kill themselves, they are not in their right state of mind. In the Hamlet Primary Source about self-murder,it states that suicide destroys the beauty of life each of us has,when the real the beauty of life could be on the other side when people have truly passed away. Ophelia is a clear example of this, she appeared to be crazy to everybody else,but is only misunderstood.
Mortality is the orphaned offspring of human existence. Haunting one’s daily actions, it lurks in the shadows, the close calls, and in one other unexpected place- one’s body. In her memoir, Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, reporter Susannah Cahalan recounts her body’s betrayal and its aftermath, painting a devastating and hopeful portrait of her condition. Enthralling and terrifying, Susannah’s report of her survival is a must-read. Quite novel in its subject matter, Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness is remarkable because it commences with the author’s admission that she remembers next to nothing of the events detailed within.“Because of the nature of my illness, and its effect on my brain, I remember only flashes of actual events… The vast majority of that time remains blank or capriciously hazy” (Cahalan XI).
She became very bored with life and had no desire to care for herself or her home as it became very dusty and old. She often sent her Negro out to to get food or other items she needed, but eventually that stopped as well. She also resulted to harm, as we can assume that she killed Homer at the end of the story. She may have also tried to harm herself with the poison to deal with the disorder, but we can’t be sure. We know about the lows since there were so many, but what about the highs?
She was the only survivor of this civil war and does not complain about the pain she has gone through. Later on, the women confess to Cunégonde and Candide and tell them, “A hundred times I wanted to Kill myself, but still I love life. This ridiculous weakness for living is perhaps one of our most fatal tendencies”(28). These experiences make the old women want to commit suicide. The idea of suicide revolves around evil, and this action is created by horrible experiences throughout your life.
Throughout both “Daddy” and “Lady Lazarus” the author seems to have a very bitter tone towards men. A hatred that I feel as if started during a rough childhood and a bitterness towards her father that she has expanded to all men. The author seems to also be extremely depressed and suicidal. She talks about having nine lives in “Lady Lazarus” almost as if she is a cat and says that every 10 years she does this unmentionable thing, being an attempt at suicide. She never lets us know what has made her so depressed to the point of wanting to commit suicide, but I assume it all stems back to her childhood and a rough life since.
Suicide captures many American each year. Sylvia Plath was very fascinated with death. Her morbid mind and thoughts led to a despised self-hatred. She lost her father at a very young age and captures parts of her life in her novel The Bell Jar. Her death has attracted many Women’s Studies.
Senior Alyssa Botessi eagerly waits for her mom to pick her up from school. She has her driver’s driving license and a car of her own, but there’s one thing she is missing—a parking pass. As soon as she gets home, she jumps in her car and drives to Hart Mmiddle S school for track practice. “I get dropped off at school by my mom, then I get picked up by her and driven home only for me to take my car up to Hhart or Sstoney for track practice,” Botessi said. “It’s very inconvenient with my track schedule, especially this year because not only is part of the parking lot closed, but the track is too, so the Rochester track team takes their practices elsewhere.
The things we have tried to forget and put behind us would stir again, and that sense of fear, of furtive unrest, struggling at length to blind unreasoning panic-now mercifully stilled, thank God-might in some manner unforeseen become a living companion, as it had been before.” (du Maurier 10). Rebecca’s death causes jealousy amongst Mrs. Danvers and the narrator. Mrs. Danvers is jealous that someone replaced Rebecca, and the narrator is jealous that she is not Rebecca since everyone compares the two wives. Also Rebecca’s death is a complete lie. For months everyone believed that Rebecca drowned to death, but it was a lie.
