He exclaims to her “the funeral baked meats/Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables” (pg. 12, l. 10-11). In his mind, the marriage to his uncle was much too quick and she should’ve waited longer to remarry. His father had been dead for a very short period of time and she already had moved onto a new man. None of this seemed right in Hamlet’s eyes.
Around the time where World War II started, the book was published in 1954. Lord of the Flies took place soon. “Lord of the Flies, far from being a mere fiction or fable, is also an authentic history of World War II and its psychological aftermath. War is not the mere occasion of the novel, but rather the off-stage protagonist in this drama of evil, determining the behavior of the boys on the marooned island. War and William Golding, in fact, are the two inextricable subjects.
One might think that he is dying from AIDS. Another indication that one might picture is a son that does not get attention because he is sick. “I am the invisible son,” is an example of the speaker being saddened around his his family the speaker knows he is dying and that he does not have a lot of time left, and soon he will be invisible (Hemphill 32). In addition to the speaker being saddened around his family is in lines sixteen through eighteen the speaker states, “My arms are empty, or around the shoulders of unsuspecting aunts expecting to
The other is where Farquhar still ends up failing but makes an incredible escape from the hands of death and is reunited with his family.

Turning from a prideful boy to being merciful toward his dead brother. In fact, it all began when his brother was born, “with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man’s” (595). Doodle is weakened and incapable of doing activities normal kids do at his age. The narrator encourages Doodle to keep on pushing, but no sooner does the narrator learn that pushing Doddle over his limitations will sooner or later kill him. The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride.
Cross realized that Martha would never love him. When he finally realized this concept, Cross was depressed cause he spent all his time thinking about how he wanted her to love him. “On the morning after Ted Lavender died, First Lieutenant Jimmy Cross crouched at the bottom of his foxhole and burned Martha’s letter.

Due to being unstuck in time makes Billy careless about the importance of life, death, and time. Billy accepts the presence of death and therefore states “so it goes,”after each mention of death. The phrase “so it goes,” is stated once death is referenced. Page 13 states, “The most important thing I learned on Tralfamadore was that when a person dies he only appears to die. He was still very much alive in the past, so it is very silly for people to cry at his funeral.
Another example is Simon’s death, and his death was also looked over. In addition the article Golding’s Lord of the Flies state that“ his death, a communal execution, so echoes the crucifixion that the correspondence seems complete.” This justifies that Simon dies for a cause that wasn’t understood, and this example can be found in a very commonly used book, the Bible. In the Bible it explains how Jesus died for a cause not understood by many, so this is like how Simon held the key to knowing the beast was inside them, he died for it too. Overall the island changed the boys to feeling no remorse for their acquaintances because of the
After completing the task with ease, Odysseus and Telemachus battle and kill all the suitors and Odysseus’ bravery shines brightly after successfully completing multiple challenges.

On page 783 Charlotte Perkins Gillman writes "I 've got out at last," said I, "In spite of you and Jane. And I 've pulled off most of the paper, so you can 't put me back!" "Now why should that man have fainted? But he did, and right across my path by the wall, so that I had to creep over him every time!" This might of gave a feel that she did not care about her husband, but only because she did not do anything to help him when he fainted.
In the story “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst there is a day where Doodle is brought to the barn loft and made to touch his casket, this is foreshadowing the upcoming event of Doodle’s death. First and foremost the fact that Doodle is being forced to touch his poison covered coffin by his brother is a representation of Doodle being pushed to the limit. The day he dies is the day brother pushes him over the edge, he makes Doodle work to point where he starts to cry. It begins with brother making “Doodle row back against the tide.”(5). Doodle was already too tired to swim before getting in the boat and it is to hard for him to run.
A Fahrenheit 451 example is when Montag told Mrs.Bowle 's about poetry “It’s poetry”(Bradbury,97) Montag told Mrs Bowle about poetry.John comes back for the dead place and his dad doesn’t want him to the village “Truth is like a deer if you eat too much truth at once you will die.” (Benet,#) It’s basically saying that if you have to much knowledge you gonna kill yourself. This ties in with my thesis that that there are different in some way. The third point I have is Montag and John both want to rebuild their society again but better this time. After the city was destroyed by a nuke Montag and his friends want to build the city back up again. “ We’re going to build a mirror factor first and put out nothing but mirrors for the next year”(Bradbury,164).
Before the attack on his home is confirmed, Macbeth tells his servant, “As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have, but in their stead / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath” (5.3.25-27). After killing too many people, Macbeth finds no purpose in honor or having love like a king normally has because he has survived so long without them, so by now he has adapted to these emptinesses. He has come to the conclusion that friends are no longer necessary because they just create more issues and more curses. They give him a false hope of honor, but the honor will not help him now. Macbeth yearns for the honor which he abandons once he decides to follow Lady Macbeth’s advice.
With that being said, innocence being ended is also a major theme in “To Kill a Mockingbird.” For example, Jem is the only one between him and Scout that truly understand what’s going on. He understands that what’s happening with Tom Robinson is wrong. After the judge convicts Tom as being guilty Jem tells his father “it ain 't right, Atticus” (212). Later in the novel Tom tries to escape prison and ends up being killed and that crushes many hearts, including Jems. The next way his innocence is put to a halt is when Bob Ewell breaks his arm.
