Foreshadowing that the south had been defeated in the civil war, Emily 's life ends the same way, contrasting against the loss of her father. As a result, since there is no other male authority that pleases both her sexuality and needs of adoration, Emily basically lives through the interpretation of others while meaning nothing to herself. She is represented as one of the deceased in the story since she rarely stepped foot outside since the burial of her father. However, after an attempt to start a relationship with Homer Barron, this causes yet another death in this story, apart from the death of Emily in the ending. Unfortunately, Emily 's mortal structure is defined in the matter of death, symbolizing the decline of the
Snape at many occasions has demonstrated his choice to truly belong to the good side still however he will never be qualified as a hero. He is difficult and unpleasant, and has no qualms to subject his students to this attitude. Snape was once a Death Eater and therefore implying his loyalty towards Lord Voldemort (Goblet of Fire). We know very little about the early life of Snape making it easy to believe that Voldemort and his ideologies were something Snape greatly admired, (“Snape knew more curses when he arrived to school then half of the kids in seventh year”, according to Sirius Black). Snape had also invented a curse , Sectumsempra (Half Blood Prince), which is rare for a student.
As far as Fenwick’s concerned, Foster is blamed for his failure in career because Foster, somehow, has always surpassed him in every work. Even Foster’s character: “He could not bear to be disliked; he hated that anyone should think ill of him; he wanted everyone to be his friend” (241) utterly contradicts to that of Fenwick: “He did not want friends; he certainly did not care that people should like him” (241). And why did he ask Foster for a walk and show him his tarn on the hill? Wasn’t he having “some further design in this” (243)? There is no evidence that the murder of Foster has been arranged in advance, but perhaps the severe hatred and envy have developed so deeply within Fenwick’s mind that in a moment he decided to push his friend into the cold water of the tarn which is, in his perception, his real partner.
He realized… “It occurred to me that anyway one more Sunday was over, that Maman was buried now, that I was going back to work, and that, really, nothing had changed. “ (Camus, 24) Explicate This shows how little importance he allowed his mother to have in his life. This further accentuates that he had given up her place in his life, which plays into the elements of philosophical suicide. He acted as if her death changed nothing, as if she was insignificant. The significance he places with her position in his life is partially his fault, because that’s all he allowed her to be.
No one must ever touch me," reinforcing the idea that close personal contact leads to responsibility and maturity which rejects. Actually, the idea of growing up is so awful for Peter that “for almost the only time in his life… he was afraid” when understood Wendy became an
Okonkwo had not allowed his father, Unoka to form a personal bond with him. Unoka was considered an Agabal; woman, by the tribes men. Unoka’s lack of merit and utter laziness caused Okonkwo to want to be better than Unoka, and immerse himself in their cultural roles, by becoming a man. The fuel that had fed Okonkwo’s motivation to be a better man was his fear of failure. The author describes this theme, “ Okonkwo was well known throughout the nine villages and ever beyond.
They had nothing in common, so they had nothing to share in their marriage. However, Hester was always honest to her husband. We can see it in the following passage, “"Thou knowest," said Hester,--for, depressed as she was, she could not endure this last quiet stab at the token of her shame,--"thou knowest that I was frank with thee. I felt no love, nor feigned any. "” (Hawthorne, 72) Her husband also says: I ask not wherefore, nor how, thou hast fallen into the pit, or say rather, thou hast ascended to the pedestal of infamy, on which I found thee.
During those years, he only thought about Martha, not about his men or the war. It all changed when Ted Lavender died in front of him when he was daydreaming about her. Since then, he decided to forget about her for the sake of his duty and for his self-conscience. “… But I reminded himself that my obligation was not to be loved but to lead… and because I realized she did not loved me and never would.” That day he burned everything, all the letters and photographs, but still that feeling never went away. Today he carries another photo of her, a recent one, in his
He didn’t care if the cowboys thought he was too young. He would work hard, and stay out of the way. He was done with that little town, its sad people, and all the sorrow that had plagued his life. He relished the idea of being free. He could do nothing about the aching pain of how his dad died…in a self imposed sleep from too much of the sleeping salts, and a fallen candle that set off the fire.

Pap was furious that Huck was going to school and learning to write, on account of nobody else in the family being able to, saying: “You’re educated, too, they say; can read and write. You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t? I’ll take it out of you.” (Ch.
