The reflective story The Scarlet Ibis is about the narrator looking back at his past. Then he said, “But all of us must have something or someone to be proud of, and Doodle has become mine. I did not know then that pride was a wonderful, terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death.” The narrator meant by this statement that he is proud to have a brother like Doodle, but pride could be wonderful or it could be detrimental. Pride in something or someone like Doodle getting Doodle to walk is good but when that pride overtakes in a self-pleasure way it could kill someone, like what it did to Doodle. Hence the overarching theme when the narrator puts all his pride in Doodle, and Doodle ends up failing, the narrators pride starts
Significantly, in Part 4, Faulkner uses Homer Barron 's corpse rotting in a room filled with "invisible dry dust" as a symbol; Emily thought of Homer like a rose, one she expected to endure long after being picked, even after his body was corrupted by the decay of time. Hence, ‘A Rose for Emily’. Notably, Faulkner uses profound imagery to summon a decrepit atmosphere, as the theme is reiterated: accept it or not, change and decay are inevitable. This change Emily always refuses, as we have seen through her father’s death, in leaving the home untouched, and certainly through her murder of Homer to allow their relationship to continue. In this case, Emily attempts to freeze time The Theme of Change vs Decay in ‘A Rose for Emily’ by Faulkner by not acknowledging the death of her father and prospective abandonment by her suitor.
“...’The House of Usher’- an appellation which seemed to include, in the minds of the peasantry who used it, both the family and the family mansion.” (The Fall of… 415). The mansion and the Usher family essentially are one, and resemble each other.

Ginsberg pays tribute to Walt Whitman in "A Supermarket in California." He feels a connection to him through poetry.

The River of Life When reading A River Runs through It, written by Norman Maclean, we uncover a number of wise statements. Not only does the narrator provide the reader with wise statements, but he also gives examples and shows us real situations throughout the novel. With each predicament or situation, we can learn important lessons. A few of these wise statements particularly stand out to me. At the beginning of the novel, Norman says referring to his father, "To him, all good things--trout as well as eternal salvation--come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy"(4.)
In Darl’s excerpt from As I Lay Dying, Darl’s description of the events and the people surrounding the death of Addie seem quite accurate. Darl chooses to include in his excerpt Jewel’s walk and his drinking from the gourd as well as Cash’s building of Addie’s coffin. Darl seems to the most reliable narrator simply because he describes the scene and what others are doing rather than focusing on his own thoughts or actions. From Darl’s excerpt, reader can tell that others are affected and involved in the passing of Addie. Unlike Darl, Cash’s excerpt is very a methodical list of how to make a coffin.
