At the end of the story, we find out that Emily murdered Homer Barron and dressed him up and laid down with him whenever she wanted to. If someone took this story at face value, they would call her a sociopath because murder is outrageous. However, when taking a closer look at Emily’s background, the reader can see that the circumstances in her life lead her to such rash decisions. She believed she was doing the right thing by killing Homer, but she went about the situation the wrong way. She just didn 't want to lose another, probably last, loved one in her life.
The reason why it can be argued, is because throughout the play she shows how she is loyal to her family and she will not stop being loyal and also how she kills herself instead of suffering.

Antigone is explaining
Unit 5: Lesson 4: Flowers for Algernon, Part 2 Apply: In the story "Flowers for Algernon, Part 2," One example of foreshadowing is when Charlie thinks his landlady is afraid of him.

This is foreshadowing because I think the reason he was fired was because everybody was scared of him, and in the surrounding paragraghs, the clues supported my thought.
/ Is Romeo slaughtered and is Tybalt dead?”(3.2.70-71). This quote at the middle of the story shows that Juliet tells her family and the nurse what they want to hear from her, meaning Juliet doesn’t have her own opinion, so her family takes this as an advantage so they could persuade Juliet that the Montagues are evil people. So, Juliet expresses that she’s angry about Tybalt’s death, and wants to avenge her family member (Tybalt). In relation to this, this expresses that she’s loyal to her family’s interests and doesn’t have her own opinion based on her experiences. Towards the end of the story, when Juliet asks Friar Lawrence for assistance concerning the marriage, Friar Lawrence expressed to Juliet, “O Juliet, I already know
Morrison had Denver confront her past so that she could move towards a better future. To get the job Denver had to explain what was happening the the Bodwins’ head servant, who took pity on her. Janey, the head servant, told the entire community about Sethe’s predicament. This lead to Ella, a pragmatic and stern slave to point out that although it was wrong for Sethe to kill Beloved it is also wrong for a child to “up and kill the mama.” (p.301) This lead to the community of women coming together to exorcise Beloved from 124. This played into Morrison’s idea that an ancestral history of suffering cannot be easily erased, but it can fade over time with hard work and support from your community.
Some people may say Lizzie iwas a wonderful woman. But was she really? For example, researchers make sense when they say Lizzie was to sweet of a woman to do such a thing,but she was actually a little crazy.In fact, she tried to by poison to kill her parents(Allard,2013). This shows that the people who think Lizzie is not crazy are wrong.In addition, despite the validity of investigators when they claim that Bridget Sullivan committing the crime,they miss the mark when it comes to the truth because all of the evidence points to Lizzie. As a matter of fact, Lizzie burned a dress with ' 'paint ' ' on it after the murders(Burning That Dress, 1893).
It was about the Kitty Genovese case when she was attacked outside of her apartment and her neighbors heard her and didn’t do anything; they ignored her cries.

Roald Dahl, the author of this short story, wants the reader to realize how one-sided a relationship can be. While Mary was fully faithful and loving to Patrick; the feelings were not mutual. The feeling of betrayal she felt was beyond imaginable and she ended up going to violence for the answer. She was afraid, angry, shocked, sorrowful, and full of hatred. There may not have been an officially stated reason that she killed him, but in my mind I believe she killed him out of the act of fright and love.
“But those with an evil heart, seem to have a talent for destroying anything beautiful which is about to bloom.” This quote relates to the text because Miss Strangeworth has an evil heart without knowing it and she destroyed good peoples feelings and in the end when her roses were destroyed, something beautiful of hers was destroyed.
