Thoughts in regards to suicide often include empathy for the dead, and wonder as to what drove the person to end their life. All too often, people ignore a rather important consideration: the thoughts and feelings of those left behind. The loved ones are left with the remorse, despondence, and grieving, while the dead are absolved of their worldly anguish. In “The Grieving Never Ends”, Roxanne Roberts employs a variety of rhetorical tactics including metaphors, imagery, tone, and syntax to illustrate the indelible effects of suicide on the surviving loved ones. Roberts effectively uses metaphors to express the complex, abstract concepts around suicide and human emotion in general.
Currently Amir and Sohrab’s relationship isn 't very stable. Sohrab lost his trust for Amir after Amir told Sohrab he would have to go back to the orphanage. Amir acknowledges his sins in the past, and that 's why with his every effort, tries to find peace and forgiveness with himself, Allah, and Hassan.

This is illustrated as to when Biff suggests that Willy ‘[spews]..vomit from his mind’ and also as to when he is presented to be ‘[evasive]’. Biff’s unreasonable and ambiguous manner is significant as Miller induces dramatic irony towards the audience, along with catharsis: an emotional release for the audience, as Biff is the only character that knows of Willy’s affair. On the other hand, after being exposed to the true nature of Willy’s mind set, Biff is presented to show sympathy
Lastly John had been able to hold true to his beliefs for the majority of his life, but after his mother had been taken away from him by her Soma addiction that had changed. After attempting to shield himself from the temptations of society he had witnessed an orgy outside of the light house he had been hiding at and finally cracked. He joined in, and the shame was so unbearable that it caused him to commit suicide. This novel is an allegory to how society does anything and everything to snuff out individuality. The way that people who had once been people of integrity and respect were pushed to debase and degrade themselves in order to fit society’s standards, much like today’s society is doing

Steinbeck demonstrates that, in Lennie 's situation, individuals with dysfunctional behaviors were dealt with as sub-par and misjudged with little help in their circumstances. It likewise demonstrates that when individuals are detainees to their status, for example, Curly 's wife, you are headed to do emotional and consideration looking for acts that cause inconvenience of everybody. In the book, the writer utilized words that were not proper English, for example, ain 't and different illustrations "You never oughta drink water when it ain 't running, Lennie,". John

In “Field Trip,” O’Brien relives a war-time experience. What causes this account to differ so greatly from previous ones, however, is the fact that O’Brien revisits this experience in person rather than through his writing. O’Brien visits the site of Kiowa’s death with his daughter Kathleen who, expectedly, does not appreciate the setting. By visiting this site, O’Brien faces the guilt and horror he faced during the war head-on. He claims that he blamed this site “for what [he] had become, and [he] blamed it for taking away the person [he] had once been” (O’Brien 176).

Oswald’s mother being senseless, and his wife’s constant displeasure could have done a large number of mental damage to a person.
