The Benefit of Believing Southern Gothic writing has been around since the 18th century. Many have written under this genre, but writers such as Flannery O’Connor have perfected it and made it popular. In Flannery O’Conner’s literary works, she gives both the characters and various events a grotesque persona in order to give an exaggerated point of view of life. She over stresses in order to show how life can be horrible if you don’t put your faith into something. Having no faith leaves one feeling baron, empty, and in tragedy.

In spite of the fact that the narrator loves the old man, he kills him because he afraid of his blue “evil eye”. Similarly, the protagonist in “A Rose for Emily” is Emily Grierson. The house that she lives in drives her mind to inhabit it in dusty and dark. Miss Emily is a mysterious character. The impression that Miss Emily gives us about her is that she is a “necrophiliac”.
Jackson appeals to fans of the American gothic through her particular description of the house and how the characters interact with it in order to show the environments foil of an absolute reality. Shirley focuses a large part of the introduction of the house on describing its odd design and initial impressions. Dr. Montague describes the house as being on a “slight slant… that may be why the doors slam shut” and notes how “every angle is slightly wrong” (Jackson 77). This causes an uneasy feeling for the reader as they question the effect this will have on the characters throughout the novel. Also, Eleanor’s initial impressions of the house cause her to hesitate and question whether she has made the correct decision.

He wanted doodle to run and swim and play like all the other children
I fully acknowledge what Remarque is showing his readers about how war is a fast and terrible way for young men to be completely changed, scarred, and grieving for the rest of their lives. Paul especially, was dramatically changed after seeing Kemmerich, Kat, Albert, Muller, and Tjaden suffer so dramatically. The scene in the novel where he first goes back home to see his family, brought out the way they can no longer adapt to such peaceful and safe conditions. Paul was so anxious, and felt as an outsider because of how peaceful it was at home, he did not know how to react, neither did he know what to do. His condition was so serious that he was basically depressed at the place where he should have been happiest.
The boys refuse to listen to him because he is an outsider and attempts to impose his parent-like nature upon them, which they dislike because they have finally escaped the power adults had over them. He is at the stem of the other’s road to savagery, and once he dies the island turns to complete chaos with no hope of turning back. Piggy represents the authority and morals the boys had left behind when they crashed, and the boys hated him for it because he is a constant reminder of everything they’ve ever
