"Doodle!" I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his. For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain.” The story also shows symbolism through the coffin, the coffin symbolizes death. The reason it symbolizes death is because The reason that the coffin symbolizes bad luck is because the coffin was built for Doodles death but Doodle didn’t die so there was a beathly vibe given off by the coffin. “One day I took him up to the barn loft and showed him his casket, telling him how we all had believed he would die.
As he gasps for breath, he gets out his last words,“ God will give him blood to drink,” then he slowly dies. The judge then used his last words to confirm that he was, in fact, a witch. This is what it must have been like for Matthew Maule on the day of his death. Even though it is a story, Nathaniel Hawthorne presents Maule’s death so well that the reader may feel as if he is at the hanging with Maule’s wife and children. As one reads the book, it might tempt them to believe that there was a curse and that it did affect the cursed family.

This is when Mrs. Mallard’s character finally starts thinking for herself. She no longer has Mr. Mallard to hold her back. Another case of character development is Mr. Mallard’s character. Critics have described Mr. Mallard as being abusive, and harmful to his wife. In the story Chopin writes, “ she will weep again when she saw the kind, tender hands folded in death...” (Chopin) This quote is an example that Mr. Mallard was not abusive or unkind to Mrs. Mallard.
This “artificial night” is Romeo’s way of coping with his loss of not being loved back by Rosaline. Although Romeo’s emotions affect his vision of life they also affect his meaning of life. Romeo finds Juliet dead in the Capulet tomb, but not possessing the knowledge that she is not actually dead. He says, “Here's to my love! Drinking.
Another way that changes how we behave is the things that we hear from others. When we are presented with some shocking news, like a loved one has passed away, our emotions seem to shift and we start behaving differently. For instance, Hamlet’s behavior changes when he finds out that Ophelia has died. In Shakespeare’s play, we are presented a scene where Hamlet, still known as a lunatic, stays hidden in a cemetery to eavesdrop and finds out that Ophelia is dead. As the priests brings forth a coffin to be buried, Laertes jumps into his sister’s grave and ask to bury him with her.

In Jonathan's case the sweet singing which reminded himself of Mina's voice guided him into the ghastly chamber of the three hellish women. To his demise, he falls for their trickery as they slowly feast on his blood. As Jonathan looks upon the three beautiful beasts, he says “I felt in my heart a wicked burning desire that they would kiss me with their red lips” (53).
Thus the Bundren family’s journey communicates the idea that one’s life cannot measured in length but in depth because one’s legacy will outlive one’s physical form from beyond the grave. The novel begins with Addie Bundren 's end. As she dies, she is surrounded by her family, for better or for worse. Her husband Anse, her daughter, and two of her four sons quietly watch over her like patient buzzards until suddenly “[her eyes] go out as though someone had leaned down and blown upon them” and all emotional hell breaks loose (Faulkner 48). Her daughter “flings herself” on to Addie dead body while her youngest son with “all color draining” flees the
Character Defense: Romeo We perceive that Romeo is innocent due to his apparent love for Tybalt and his clear disesteem to the brawl unfolding. He wanted to advent the violence thrust upon him by his love (Tybalt). He cared too much to fight him but when a good life-long friend, Mercutio, is murdered in front of his very eyes he is shaken to the core. He did this while not in the correct state of mind, cleary in a haze of sorrow and guilt not yet fully comprehending the effects of his actions. His gentle altercation with Tybalt defines his love for his friends and family.
As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner follows the Bundren family on their arduous journey to fulfill their dying mother's wish: to be buried with her family. Faulkner utilizes fifteen narrators, including Vardaman, the confused child, Addie, the dying mother, and objective characters such as the Tull family, to recount the details of the family's quest. Although death is a meaningful and somber topic, Faulkner reveals his opinion that death is an escape from the difficulties of life. Despite this grim subject matter, Faulkner uses irony and humor to effectively turn the novel into a dark comedy. Faulkner illustrates this dark humor through Addie's anticipation of her death, Anse's blatant ignorance toward his dying wife, and Vardaman's amusing confusion about death.
The novel starts off with an injured Confederate soldier, Inman, from the Battle of Fredericksburg. Inman was tended at a hospital but decides to leave at night to return to his lover, Ada Monroe, at Cold Mountain, North Carolina. Ada on the other hand did not live a glorious life at home. Her father soon dies and she is left to take over her father’s farm called the Black Cove. With the help of her friend, Ruby, the two women worked to make the farm in good condition.

I just watched. Paralyzed.” (Hosseini 73) Amir is a coward, and he is afraid of what will happen to him if he speaks on behalf of Hassan. As an adult looking back, Amir realizes that this was a turning point in his life. Furthermore, when he and Soraya were at Baba’s funeral, he shares a scene with Soraya where he opens up, “Soraya pulled me close and the tears finally came.” (Hosseini 185) Amir and Soraya are together for Baba’s passing and that helps Amir stay together. Amir cried in Soraya’s arms, which is something the book, only shows him doing one other time; this shows intimacy and a very close bond between the two.
At last, a tragic hero realized his bad and try to fix that into right way. In the book “the crucible” John Proctor said to lawyer and judgement that “Tell them I confessed myself: say Proctor broke his knees and wept like a woman:say what you will, but my name cannot-”(p62). It reflects that he is trying to be honest, and also trying to be a good father to his child and husband to Elizabeth. This is because, if he confess and avoid death, his child cannot inherited anything and Elizabeth lived with suffer because her husband is a witch. But, Proctor doesn’t confess that he is witch, and be honest to his child and wife.
Another reason that Romeo was to blame was because his servant told him that Juliet had died and he rushed to Verona while he was banished from there. The evidence I found was when Balthasar, Romeo 's servant, said, “Her body sleeps in Capel 's Monument, and her immortal part with angels lives I saw her laid low in her kindred 's vault, and presently took post to come and tell you.” Another reason of why it was Romeo’s fault was when he said, “Ah, Juliet if the measure of thy joy be heaped like mine and that thy skill be more to blazon it, then sweeten with thy breath this neighbor air and let rich music 's tongue unfold the imagined happiness that both receive in either by this dear encounter.” He said this right before they both got
