They lived a splendid life by Insei. In other words, the empire's authority was not established properly, so centralized power was not strengthened. Therefore, the ancient state form centered on the Emperor gradually collapsed to the end. In The Tale of Gengi, the story of the Japanese dynasty in the Heian era was described in a vivid picture of the love, affection, beauty, and connection through the generation.

The illness and love both did not greet them easily but rather hard. Even their financial problems never easily got solved through alcohol and drugs. However, they kept their passion for the artists who tried to express their freedom and share their life through drawing. Even though they lived miserably, they knew how to love and deal with the outer world. Van Gogh and Modigliani 's ability to transform their flaws and pain into art indicates that even though they had failures and illnesses which blocked their dream, they actually acted upon as strong independent men who faced each of their pain through paintings.

Shelley’s novel encompasses the unknown and how ambition drove Victor’s passions, ultimately leading him to the tragic end with many other bumps in the road along the way. As Victor had been in the study of life and its cause, the death of his mother had catalyzed a movement of grief which had started, “…depriv[ing him]self of rest and health. [Which he] had desired it with an ardour that far exceeded moderation…” (Shelley 35).

However, upon realizing had created an abomination as he finished, he flees, “…now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart” (Shelley 35).
Swaying between life and death, forsaken by both, this trend of Chinese postmodernism that above we have defined as impressionist realism, seems to come to terms with death rather than life. The excess of Maoism and the contradiction of the market economy have shaped a generation of writers whose future expectations don’t match with their recollections of the past. And the past becomes a ghost. Chinese traditional sense of belonging fades away, family ties are dismissed, children are abandoned, people learn to stand on their own not to succumb. The protagonist are dissatisfied, deceived, alienated from family members, yearning for love, anti-hero of the revolution, never fully engaged in the present nor fully aware of their past.

He felt that the squire didn 't appreciate how much he risked for his country, for the people he loved, for the squire himself, "Two bleeding years I fought in France, for Squire: I suffered anguish that he 's never guessed". The words ‘suffered’ and ‘anguish ' shows the soldiers’ emotional feeling towards the war, it shows how angry and sad he feels about what is happening and that he has been through a lot. The squire stays safe at home and did not go to war; there is an implication that he was fully aware of the danger, “I suffered anguish that he’s never guessed”, this shows that the Squire has never felt anything like this before but he knows that the soldiers feel it.
Poe’s Grim and Dreary Style Many writers express how they feel by the way they write, and how they see the world around them. Edgar Allan Poe is no exception to the rule. During the early years of Edgar Allan Poe, his father abandoned him, his mother, and two siblings. He later saw his own mother cough up blood and die, due to tuberculosis, a very slow death to encounter for a young age child. He was later adopted in 1811 by a couple who did not even want him (Marshall).

In the book it states,” After Gatsby 's death the East was haunted for me like that, distorted beyond my eyes ' power of correction.”(Fitzgerald, 98). Scott had Nick say this after Gatsby was killed because of endless paths of betrayal throughout the novel. this is the same way fitzgerald thought of the east being being wicked and
He describes “the white man” of not knowing him, and not knowing the conditions he had to face. He says his story is intended to “show him with words a world he would otherwise not see because of a sign and a conscience racked with guilt and to make him feel what I felt when he contemptuously called me ‘Kaffir Boy.’” (Mathabane, 3). The conditions he had to live with for eighteen years are described as cruel and disturbing. These cruel and disturbing conditions made life unbearable, so unbearable that Mark questioned if a life so rough was worth living. He tried to commit suicide because he is so miserable and he wonders if it is worth it.
