He reads it again, wonders what his family will think, wonders who will tell Mutti. He feels sad for Mutti. He knows his death will be hard on her.” A Lot of quite sad events happened like this in both stories, which built a lot of Tension. Also, we see a flashback of Helmuth dying and saying goodbye to his friends and his family in letters. In “The Devil’s Arithmetic,” on pages 160-161 it says “She stopped as the dark door into Lilith’s Cave opened before them.

Shockingly, she walks downstairs after fleeing from her friends’ horrible news, and her husband walks in the door. As he walks in, Josephine screams and falls down dead; the happiness that she had felt was too much for her weak heart. Likewise, “A Rose for Emily,” written by William Faulkner, opens on a woman, Emily Grierson, except this time the woman is already dead. The story is told from the perspective of the townspeople, a collective “we.” They recount when she was exempted from her taxes, and then when she refused to pay them after the death of the person who remitted her. Then, the townspeople go back further to a time when Emily’s house had a stench so foul, a judge was consulted about what to do; it was decided that a few townspeople would stealthily sprinkle lime about her property in order to not confront her and seem discourteous.
It was Brently Mallard who entered, a little travel stained, composedly carrying his grip-sack and umbrella.”(117). After analyzing the quote the readers know that before this is taken place Mrs. Mallard had just returned downstairs from staring out her bedroom window. Seeing her husband has clearly shocked Mrs. Mallard as Chopin states, “When the doctor came they said she had died of heart disease- of joy that kills.”(117). the shocking scene of her seeing her husband alive has instantly killed Louise Mallard. Chopin uses the phrase, “…of joy that kills” at the end of her short story.
This is widely depicted in the song “Can the Circle Be Unbroken” which discusses the suffering and grief associated with the death of the narrators mother. This song successfully generates lament from the audience through its lyrics which ultimately paint a story. One may see this as the author states “But I could not hide my sorrow when they laid her in the grave…went back home Lord, my home was lonesome since my mother was gone...all my brothers, sisters crying, what a home so sad and lone”. However, although the author paints a story of his/her mothers funeral, they also express their comfort in knowing that their mother is gone but present with the Lord. This is depicted when they state “There’s a better place in the sky Lord, in the sky.
In the beginning of the film Koro goes to see his son at the hospital. In this scene the sons wife has just died and there is a person speaking chants in their native tounge over her dead body. As Koro enters the room the first thing he says in a room full of mourning people is “Where is the boy?” He does not acknowledge the dead woman, or address the pain of his son’s loss. My assumption is that Koro feels an overwhelming pressure to find a new tribe leader. In the hospital he go to see the babies and tell his wife to remove the girl from the room.
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).

Both authors, Langston Hughes and George Orwell portrayed a sense of pressure and uneasiness from the crowds that watched on. The young Hughes felt ashamed of himself because technically everyone else has been saved (besides Westley). He began to feel overwhelmed as the church members looked at him confused and wondering why he was still on the mourners’ bench. The church made Hughes feel uncomfortable, the tension was too much for Hughes to handle so eventually he decided to, “ Lie, too, and say that Jesus had come, and get up and be saved” (Hughes 184). Everyone in the church started shouting and screaming, especially Hughes’ aunt because this meant the world to her.
As John’s mother was dying, “He felt the hot tears welling up behind his eyelids as he recalled the words and Linda’s voice as she repeated them” (Huxley 201). John was about to cry because he was sad that his mother was dying, which no one in the World State could understand because death was such a normal thing for them that no one got bent up over. While John’s mother is dying, he gets angry because little boys are talking about his mother in an awful way. “The Savage had seized him by the collar, lifted him clear over the chair and, with a smart box on the ears, sent him howling away” (Huxley 202). We see here, that John acts upon his anger and has the ability to be angry, whereas people of the World State would take soma to calm themselves down.
