Fritz Pfeffer died of illness in Neuengamme late December 1944. Anne’s father, Otto Frank, was liberated from Auschwitz on January 27, 1945.

In the story which took place in the 1800s, Louise, known for having heart trouble, believes her husband has passed away and is relieved with her newly found freedom in secret. However, once she finds out that her husband is alive, Louise passes away from the shock of having her freedom stripped as fast as it was given to her. Louise’s feeling of being trapped within herself was a thought that had been in her head for a while. This was apparent by the quote where Chopin says, “She was young, with a fair, calm face, whose lines bespoke repression and even a certain strength” (202). The story was set in a time where women’s rights in marriage were very limited.
Within the context of recent history, Wilfred Owen is often considered the greatest writer of modern British war poetry. Composing the vast majority of his poems in a one-year time span, Owen found inspiration from his personal experiences fighting in World War I and fellow poets joining in the fight around him. Born in 1893, Owen grew up the oldest of four children, enjoying a particularly close relationship with his mother while his father remained distant. Owen graduated from Shrewsbury Technical School at age eighteen. Afterwards, Owen took numerous odd jobs throughout Europe, seemingly at a loss for his purpose in life.
