After Harmon Gow said, “Guess he’s been in Starkfield too many winters. Most of the smart ones get away.” and the engineer asked why, Harmon replied, “Somebody had to stay and care for the folks. There warn’t ever anybody but Ethan.
Do you ever tire? God, look at you, iron is what you are made of. Here we all are, half dead with weariness falling asleep over the cars and you say no landing-no firm island earth where we could make a quiet supper”(pg;839 L162-168). Many storms came and went so instead of wanting to stay there for two days, they stayed for two months. Eurylochus got what he deserved because Odysseus told them to swear they wouldn 't eat the cattle and they all told Odysseus they wouldn 't.

“Josef, you never venture out into those woods, ever!” Those were the words I had heard numerous times over the past few days, ever since I had gained the knowledge that my mom and I live in the backyard of the infamous vampire Count Dracula. The problem is that I, without a doubt, want to meet him. My mother, Maria, a loving, but protecting mom, seems to have a problem with that, but I have no clue why. “Josef, time to eat!” As I sat down at the old, wooden dinner table, I started to think long and hard. Between bites of porridge, I asked my mother- “Mom, why can’t……..
The theme of grief is shown throughout the poem Morning in the Burned House , which is set in post-apocalyptic times. Margaret Atwood visits the themes grief and loss of innocence in her poem. The poem starts off "In the burned house I am eating breakfast. You understand: there is no house, there is no breakfast" Repetition is seen here using the word breakfast, as she is emphasising no one is around and there is no routine as the lady is out of place and is confused. With the first couple of lines the poet is telling us that she is a liar.

“On every side it sat like a lid on the mountains and made of the great valley a closed pot.” Since Elisa lives in the valley, it is as if she is also confined in a closed pot. As a woman living during these times, Elisa did not go far from home, and she could not see beyond the valley because of the fog. In the story, it is described as being cut off from the rest of the world when Steinback writes, “The high gray-flannel fog of winter closed off the Salinas Valley from the sky and from all the rest of the world.” The description of the valley paints a picture for the reader of her surroundings and helps them understand part of her loneliness. In addition, the two other character Elisa interacts with are her husband Henry and the tinker. Most of her conversations with her husband are dull and her lack of confidence becomes apparent.

Steinbeck portrays the theme of loneliness and isolation effectively through key fictional characters and a number of underlying themes. The setting for the story is “Soledad” which is Spanish for loneliness; this gives readers connotations of a depressing and remote environment in which the itinerant farmers live. There is mention of the men going “into town” and Curley going to a doctor when his hand is smashed but there is no socialisation with anyone from outside of the ranch. All of the workers are nomadic and solitary, the man who used George’s bed before him “just quit, the way a guy will...just wanted to move.” This suggests that not many characters are settled. The men on the ranch are all passing through
Another day was so much like the one before, and the many before that. He walked the house and grounds, slowly, letting time pass as it must. Alone, present but not present, for can one truly be there if no one knows of it? Like the saying he’d heard more than once over the unmeasured time of his existence: If a tree falls in the forest but no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? He ambled through the back yard, pausing under the tree from which he’d been hanged, cursing his tormentors, vowing to haunt them for all time.
There will come soft rains is a shorty story about the future people and there non-existence. The only house left after an apocalypse is personified to be a working, talking human. This house stands alone talking to no one, cooking breakfast for no one, and reading to no one. Personification was used to show the sadness and loss of human interaction by revealing the last death on earth. Bradbury also uses figurative language to show a great deal of loss and sadness, “At eight thirty the eggs shriveled and the toast was like stone”(Bradbury 1).
