It uses this effect to accentuate the “Homecoming” of the dead. Repetition is harnessed to utilise the irony and accentuate the ones who are coming back are dead, not the glorified ending that society was promised. The inditer, Dawe, utilises his perspective to present his view on the matter. His perspective is rather raw, and often the plain truth, as optically discerned in “Homecoming”, and in some stanzas in “On the Death of Ronald Ryan”. Readers may interpret his works in ways of tyranny toward the regime, society in some fashions.

In “2BR02B” by Kurt Vonnegut,” Vonnegut maintains that we cannot put a cap on the population. The cap creates problems and deteriorates a much-needed stigma behind the idea of death. Death is and always has been the last experience a human has and it is their right to do so as they desire. Thus, this everlasting conflict in humanity supports that there can be no cap. Paul Ehrlich was the front man for the idea that we would run out of resources and live in squalor, which would lead to situations like the one in “2BR02B”.

In the Ray Bradbury's short story, the world has been heavily influenced by nature, the point he is trying to get across with the destruction of everything, is that nature will greatly outlast, even the last building left standing. While Sarah Teasdale's version has a much more lively take on the nature scene; creating scenarios in her poem with singing frogs. Sarah;s version also has some themes in hers as well. The quote “Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, if mankind perished utterly.” This suggest that Sarah Teasdale's incorporates darker scenes in her poem like Ray bradbury. This quote shows the self absorption, and selfishness of mankind.

Towards the end of The Crucible, Proctor shames himself and confesses of having affair with Abigail. Abigail denies John’s words and says “If I must answer that, I will leave and I will not come back again” (pg. 1207) because she knows that if she confesses now all the work she has put on the line will be done all for nothing, and will make her look more like a fool than she ever was. This quote indicates that Abigail Williams is a selfish antagonist because she is lying about something that is clearly noticeable. Some people may argue that Abigail isn’t the only one to blame, as in there are many others to blame for the loss of many lives.
