The tone of the soliloquy can be interpreted as exhausted because Macbeth has acknowledged that time does not wait for anyone. It keeps moving at a constant rate which produces the image of the soldiers marching towards him when Macbeth was in his castle and life marching forward in a “petty pace” ( Shakespeare V.V. 20 ), making it barely noticeable.

In “Der Erlkönig”, the boy tries to tell his father that the Erlking is coming, but his father ignores him. In The Erlking, Ondine thinks the man following them has treats or presents and it’s supposed to be a surprise, but the man stopped following them. Even though, this man appears to be a representation of the Erl-King; unlike the boy, Ondine didn’t notice that the man represents an evil entity.

In my opinion, Holden is a typical teenager. In the novel, Holden seeks for independence, questions about religion that people believed, and gone through all the hard times. Throughout the entire novel, Holden barely thinks about his parents, not even doubting if his parents would ‘kill’ him if they know he gets kicked out of Pencey. He can relate to teenagers these days because teenagers are usually rebellious against their parents and do not listen to their parents most of the times. Holden 's parents do not show up in the novel, showing that his relationship with his parents is not perfect, just like others.
