Toward the beginning of Ray Bradbury’s, Something Wicked This Way Comes, William Halloway was often associated with dramatic irony to show his deficient understanding of the carnival’s operation but verbal irony to show that he was also suspicious of the carnival. Dramatic irony is evident when Will and Jim question the whereabouts of the lighting rod salesman, like when one of them said, “Storm never came. But he went.”(Bradbury70) then the other said, “Where? And why did he leave his bag?”(70), and finally, “What’s so important you forget everything?”(70). The dramatic irony is shown with the boys multiple questions emphasizing their curiosity about Tom Fury’s abrupt relocation such as, “Where?”(70), “…why…”(70), and “What’s so important…”(70).
If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas ' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!.” Mr. Scrooge also doesn’t care about anyone just himself. He is selfish. "At this festive season of the year, Mr. Scrooge," said the gentleman, taking up a pen, "it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and Destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time. Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir."

To Tim Burton the past is the thing shapes and frames a person into the person that they are. Tim Burton uses scenes that look into a character’s past in his Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and Edward Scissorhands to show that one’s past shapes their future and makes them who they are today. Tim Burton uses the flashback in order to show a character’s past and give background information on that character. For example in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory flashbacks are used to show Wonka’s bad relationship with his father and how his father was against Wonka eating candy even though Wonka loved candy. Despite his father’s disgust for candy Wonka still became the owner and inventor of the largest candy company in the world.
There was a touch of parental contempt in it, even toward people he liked and there were men at New Haven who had hated his guts.” ch.1 Analysis: Nick is describing Tom, since he’s the narrator.

Murakami uses the curse and the unsettling vagueness to symbolize supernatural ideas and create the idea that the marriage of the couple is unsatisfactory. The curse itself has magical and paranormal tones that Murakami intentionally included. The curse was first introduced to the narrator when he attacked a bakery when he was young and broke. Instead of punishing the the two young men, the narrator described to his wife the deal they had made with the bakery owner: “If we would listen to the record all the way through, we could take as much bread as we liked” (74). Specifically, the boys were forced to listen to Wagner, specifically, one of his most famous compositions, which was the opera, The Flying Dutchman.
Accepting When You Are Wrong In Nick Flynn’s memoir, Another Bullshit Night In Suck City, the narrator, Nick, and his father, Jonathan have developed a negligent relationship among each other. Nick has many encounters with his father, where he could have approached him in order to reconnect the father son bond but he does not. However, Nick does feel that not only is his father lost but he is as well. “Some part of me knew he would show up, that if I stood in one place long enough he would find me, like you’re taught to do when you are lost. But they never taught us what to do if both of you are lost, and both of you end up in the same place, waiting.” (Flynn 24) Nick chose to remain focused on how his father was not there for him growing up, and not take advantage of the times that he was right in front of him.

This is illustrated by the character Harry Hodby, who lives in a town that judges one by their looks, house and family, but not for who they truly are. An example of this is the Hodby household, which on the outside is smeared with oil. Due to this, the town’s people like to tell everyone, “You’ll see it. Or smell it," not realising how clean and nice it and it’s inhabitants are on the inside. This causes sadness in Harry, leading him to get in a fight with Craig Randall over the snide comments made about the house, "even though I [Harry] agreed with every word."
It is estimated that for every single report of elder abuse there are 14 incidents that are not reported, according to figures provided by JFS. Something that can be frustrating for family members is the privacy of these investigations. Once JFS receives a complaint and investigates, then all of the information is confidential, Owens said. Seniors have a right to privacy, as long as they are cognizant of person, place and time, he added. “It’s a very difficult position to be in.” "Elder abuse is a terrible but preventable problem," ODJFS Director Cynthia C. Dungey said in a news release.
