The root of Poe’s fondness of death could go back to his father leaving him at a young age, or a terrible example of a father figure all throughout his life and have never been accepted. Death is huge in many of his works as in Cask of Amontillado, The Tell-tale Heart, and The Pit and the Pendulum just to name a few. And within all of these the two main characters were somehow one way or another brutally murdered which taking the psychoanalytic approach you can say that Poe was writing thinking his real father or his other “father” figure, as one of the less unfortunate characters in his stories.

Troy Maxson did not have an involved father growing up, which would attribute to why Troy struggles with many problems. When Troy left his family behind and moved to Pittsburgh, he met a girl and had a child with her.

Thirteen is an odd number in everyone's lives, as it's the age where social norms and people themselves change the quickest. James Howe's Jeremy Goldblatt Is So Not Moses is the story of Jeremy Goldblatt, an outcast among his peers, coming of age to face his Bar Mitzvah and the expectations of his friends and family. Jeremy has always been a bit different, and some teenagers see different as a bad thing. All he wants is to be accepted, and his Bar Mitzvah is the first big step.

Internal Comments: No. While the poem certainly does have a lot of potential in relation to thematic significance, certain lines seem unnecessary and redundant. The author goes on a tangent about a notorious “her”, before jarringly switching back to the scene of the action.

The affect change has on its surroundings and anything involved could be very detrimental depending on the situation. The poems “Mid-Term Break” and “Nothing Gold Can Stay” are similar, for they are both poems that talk about change.

Tension between the characters in the novel “The Outsiders” is like stretching a rubber band until it breaks. After reading chapter one of the novel “The Outsiders” by S. E. Hinton, I can summarize that it is about a fourteen year old boy named Ponyboy, who is apart of a gang called the greasers and how he has strong feeling against his oldest brother.

First and foremost, Ponyboy doesn 't like Darry because he is trying to be his guardian.
