“Maman died today...I don’t know … everything will have a more official feel” (Camus 3). The use of diction shows Meursault's dispassionate to visit his mother. Through the use of words, Meursault is prevailed as emotionless and complicated to understand as he does not mourn for his mother, but is calm and lifeless. Also, through the work of diction, it reveals that Meursault has an affection towards Marie, but does not have a habit of comforting his feelings for her, but goes with what occurs in present.But the relationship he has with Marie shows that he cannot give women a healthy relationship. Meursault is used to sleeping around with her that he does not value love she provides for him.
However, the happiness of the deceased does not always ease the pain of those still living. Because people experience death in so many different ways, both as the dying and the ones left behind, they have many takes on death as a whole. “Death, Be Not Proud” by Jon Donne, “Because I Could
“That meant, of course, I was to die. Sooner than others, obviously. 'But,' I reminded myself, 'it's common knowledge that life isn't worth living, anyhow.' And, on a wide view, I could see that it makes little difference whether one dies at the age of thirty or threescore and ten-- since, in either case, other men will continue living, the world will go on as before” (p. 114). The theme of absurdity appears due to the fact that the majority of people don’t go on living their lives believing no one will remember their existence.
This is because he 's not really living his life, he 's simply stagnant and coasting along. He 's not working towards anything or giving his life meaning, thus if he 's not really living, he 's basically already dead. Not until forced to confront his own mortality, when his life is literally counting down in front of him, does the importance of what he wants out of life take center-stage. After this, Raymond K. Hessel is allowed to live as long as he works towards his goal, as long as he tries to seize the life he wants. Without the realization of his own mortality, without knowing that his entire existence can be gone any moment, he would have continued to live a
Death; It is an event wherein a being living in this world becomes unable to cope up or adapt to the environment, thus the being loses the ability to live. It is inevitable. There would come a time that everything which exists today would also be gone in this world forever. But where do you think us beings would be after dying? Many of us are scared to die because we never had any information about what would happen in the afterlife.
Meursault challenges this standard when asked by the prosecutor if he loved his mother. Camus describes the scene saying, “He began by asking bluntly if I’d loved my mother. ‘Yes,’ I replied, ‘the same as anyone.’” (Camus 67). Meursault uses an indifferent tone when speaking about his mother as he does not differentiate his love for his mother from anyone else and does not believe that he loved her in a unique way like Salamano loved his dog. To Meursault, his mother is replaceable because he loves her the same as any other person due to being an absurdist.
Once they decide on a man, there is no going back and divorce was considered uncommon. The women in the novel, each display their thoughts on marriage. However, Elizabeth Bennett, who is opinionated and passionate about her beliefs, is inclined to disagree with the norms of the society the most. While others believe that marriage is the key to happiness, she disagrees. She is not easily influenced by those surrounding her, even her family, and her honesty and wit allow her to avoid the drama that dominates the society.
Mrs. Millard admits her husband was kind and loving and that “she knew she would weep again when she saw the kind tender hands folded in death”. (65) She feels joy either way. Her reaction does not show anything bad since she knows she “had loved him”(66) . However, despite the love between them, Mrs. Millard views her husband 's death as a release from oppression. She does not specify any ways that her husband oppresses her, but it can be understood that during that time period, in 1880s Louisiana, women did not have many rights, if at all any.
The second thing that I liked was that the plausibility of a love (if any) between two unequal person regarding two their social statuses. Even today, it is not supposed as the true love for most of the people. By the way, it is important to emphasize at this point that when Jane learned Bertha and she left Thornfield to not to be a mistress, I thought that this relationship is completely over but through the last chapters, I was shocked to see that Jane went to Thornfield again to seek the true love. As a reader, I understood that if there is a love between the lovers in the real sense, it doesn’t matter whether they are far away from themselves and any kind of hardships mean nothing for them as it is peculiar from Rochester’s blindness at the end. The third is that there were no family interventions to their relationship as we happened to see a lot in usual life.
Euthanasia If you had a terminal illness and were suffering daily, what would you like to do to change that? There is an easy solution to this problem, but most people look down upon it because they believe it is immoral. What I am talking about is euthanasia. Euthanasia should be allowed in these cases where a person is suffering and is probable to die soon. Forcing a terminally ill person to live when they would rather die than suffer is much more immoral than euthanizing them.
