Unlike the death of Mrs. De Ropp or that of Foster, Morgan’s death is unexplainable, and even scarier because he kept typing about an unknown town without being alive. And the town named “Xibeco” he was typing about is, too, a weird point contributing to his passing. Was he seeing heaven or hell? Was he observing some forthcoming events that nobody is able to see? Was he simply experiencing some alteration of his own spirit as his perception was being swept away?
The family includes Mr. and Mrs. Otis, their daughter Virginia, the twins and their eldest son Washington. The other characters in the story include the Canterville Ghost, Mrs. Umney the housekeeper, and the Reverend. At first, the whole family is very dismissive about the ghost but after spending some time at the house, it becomes quite clear that the ghost does, in fact, exist. They hear clanking chains and even see a reappearing bloodstain on the floor. The bloodstain is very unusual and actually confirms the existence of the ghost for the family.
The viewers are not aware where these flashes are coming from or if they are in the past, the future, or just made up entirely. This means the viewers experience the same feelings of frustration and confusion as Louise may be feeling, without having Louise tell them how to feel. By using visual images to depict these scenes, there is no need for any character to narrate them to tell the reader what is happening. This allows the readers to get a less biased perspective of each scene. In contrast, the written word of Heart of Darkness creates clearly subjective viewpoints of what is happening to Marlow.
For the rest of his life, he would be haunted by blood in the streets and late night disappearances. Even after he had been in the states for years, he jumped if a black Volkswagen passed him on the street. He feared anyone in uniform: the meter maid giving out parking tickets, a museum guard approaching to tell him not to touch his favorite Goya at the Metropolitan”(Alvarez 95). While in D.R. her father went through a lot, he lost his brothers to the comrades that followed after the dictator and after the fear they created that followed him.
As they are waiting and the uncertainty of where Mr. Bates is at. Elizabeth starts to think that he is entertaining old habits and had gone off drinking at a shop called the Prince of Wales but nobody has seen him. She ends up asking neighbors if maybe they had caught a glimpse of his whereabouts but still no answers. It was not until Elizabeth heard heavy footsteps outside her door when she figured out what happened to her husband. The men that were working with Mr. Bates had his body lying in a stretcher dead.
But the darkness had grew from the closet to part of the room and took over the door. The doll was sitting on the bed and had her head looking at him and would keep turning her head every time he moved, her head would move. The gang's leader had called out to his friend and all they heard was a loud scream and dead
She leaves a vacant space as far as voices and telling are concerned. Her absence disrupts the order in character’s lives, who keep wandering through life looking for meaning they were deprived of by Caddy’s departure. It is in the same way that the reader struggles to make sense of the novel, and find the intended meaning, but it is all in vain – “theres a curse on us its not our fault is it our
The fact that not many people knew about his wife and her death, and the fear of spirits haunting his cabin, sparks an interest in the mind of the narrator. Much later, he learns about the unfortunate incident of how the death of his wife occurred and Murlock’s lack of grief almost gives rise to suspicion and makes the setting very eerie. It also gives rise to speculation that his wife’s spirit might have been displeased with the way he performed the rituals of her burial. The setting of the unfortunate night when Murlock heard a loud cry, makes us wonder, whether the cry was of that of a wild beast or the spirit herself. Magic realism can be defined as a literary genre which incorporates
The second is how he is almost alienating himself from others and very rarely opens up to anybody, and his relationships with people are not great because he thinks of many of the people he meets are phony. These two struggles are what causes Holden to realise his purpose is being a catcher in the rye. His struggle to adulthood is quite evident. Holden states that the adult world is a nasty and horrible place, he thinks that the adult world is very phony, fake, and corrupt. These are words he uses quite often to describe the adult world, proving that he despises the thought of being an adult.
It is only through accepting mediocrity throughout his life that Ed becomes too afraid of doing anything out the ordinary, leading to an uneventful lifestyle. Unlike I Am the Messenger, Okonkwo’s fear in Things Fall Apart is pinpointed to the disappointing actions of his father. Okonkwo’s upbringing by Unoka, an embarrassment who “was lazy and improvident...quite incapable of thinking about tomorrow.” (3), created a fear of becoming his father. Both stories show that when present, fear plays a key role in determining one’s reactions. Although fear drives the actions of both protagonists, a distinction in both how they present this fear to the reader and how they look at the fear explains the contrasting results.
