Sorrow is an emotion of deep distress that is caused by loss, disappointment, or other misfortune suffered by oneself or others. Others might think that sorrow is the emotion that accepts two individuals to forges all of the inconvenience and all of the unfairness that makes one completely fall in love but the sorrow takes over. William Shakespeare was known of his writing that includes different emotions such as sorrow. Many of his sonnets and plays are all about sorrow. His most famous play is Romeo and Juliet.
In the essay “An Hour or Two Sacred to Sorrow,” Richard Steele describes how different types of deaths afflicted him through life. Steele’s first encounter with death, occurred when he was a young child and his father had passed away. Not understanding the reason why he thought that “he was locked up there” until he saw his mother sobbing by his coffin. Steele argues that “a body in embryo; [receiving] impressions so forcible, that they are hard to be removed by reason,” stating that a loss as an adult is nothing compared to a loss as a child. The second type of death is the death of a soldier, who “move rather our veneration than our pity.”
“Emerson and Kerouac: Grievous Angels of Hope and Loss” Philosophy Americana: Making Philosophy at Home in American Culture Douglas R. Anderson Fordham University Press, New York 2006 The chapter talks about three individuals whose works had a great influence on American culture: Emerson, Kerouac and Gram Parson. The chapter uses Parson`s song “Return of the Grievous Angel” in order to bring into discussion the roles hope and loss play in the writing of Emerson and Kerouac. Together with folk-poet Thomas S.

Grief is a normal reaction to loss. It's the emotive misery you feel when a person you adore is taken away. The more important the loss, the more extreme the anguish will be. Lamenting is an individual and exceptionally personal experience. How you lament relies on upon numerous elements, including your identity and adapting style, your background, your belief, and the way of the loss.

The love story of “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare is a very powerful and delicate piece of literature that shows much emotion. The emotion and expression that is created can be described in many ways like angry, sadness, and others.

Steven Pinker once said, “Human nature is complex. Even if we do have inclinations toward violence, we also have inclination to empathy, to cooperate, to self-control.” Human nature is the characteristics, feelings, and behavioral traits of humankind. As humans, we can express different kinds of emotions such as joy, frustration, despair, remorse, and other forms of emotions depending on the situations we encounter. This form of human nature is uniquely explored within John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath novel.
Socrates, A great philosopher of the ancient era, gave explanation to life through the use of questioning, some of which ironic, contradicting what he had previously learned so that he could further develop the truth. This function of irony to develop thought is not used solely in the philosophical world, but also in the world of literature. Nathaniel Hawthorne is one of these authors to do so. In his novel The Scarlet Letter Hawthorne utilizes irony to build up to and to explain the truths of the intertwining mysteries of his tale. The act of explaining truth in literature can be a challenging one, and there is many variations as to how to meet this confrontation, whence we see the use of irony in Hawthorne’s text.
