Most men die only once, but you twice”(Homer 115). When Odysseus goes to Hades he sees his mother and many other people that he knows who were dead. When he sees his mother she tells him that he is going to get home eventually but it is going to be a challenge. This is a very emotional time for Odysseus because he got to see his mother that has been dead for a long time. Homer adds the challenges that Odysseus faced in the middle of the book to create an emotion in the reader and to help the reader better understand the reasons he was prevented from getting home.
However in the end Doodle might have tried too hard because, when death comes knocking the door is usually answered and, sadly for Doodle he may have been strong but not strong enough, ¨ For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain.¨ this symbolises the death of a bird called an ibis that Doodle had taken the care to bury just hours before, and his brother the narrator is now, remembering how just like Doodle the scarlet ibis had come so far from where is started only to die a tragic and sorrowful death, and how remarkable that it was the accomplishments they both made. Going more in depth in this his brother had never really shown compassion towards Doodle and sort of thought of him as a burden. THis is why some may see it as surprising that he felt so much emotion when his brother passed but, others not so much because, through the resentment there was always love only to be cut short by a short life. Taking a look back at the story it seems like everything lead up to Doodles death and it seemed as if there was a lot of death mentioned as it progressed too.

These memories were so vivid that the only seemingly just thing to do was to kill Ralph.

Michael Sims short story “All The Dead Are Vampires”, he describes a little portion of his connection to death and some of the knowledge he had about vampires specifically during the 18th century. In the 18th century, it was believed that after death many people became vampires because of the bad decisions they made during life. During that time people got “to see corpses” (Sims 11) very often and there also was very little information about dead bodies and how they decompose, so when they saw these bodies while decomposing it frightened them because they did not know what was happening. While bodies decompose, they obviously look different than from when they were alive and since people did not understand why they looked different

That shot from the blackjack had been just as deadly to Luis as a shot from a gun” (247). This affected Paul since Luis was not only a friend of Paul, but somebody Paul looked up at. When Luis confronted Arthur and Erik to speak up for Tino whom Erik had punched, he said, “You would smack a little kid in the face, right? Why don’t you come over here and try to smack me?”

The Ancient Egyptians believed in a journey of life after death. They believed one’s body must be kept whole and preserved known as mummification. If they are successful in their afterlife journey, then they would achieve immortality. I chose the Mummy and Cartonnage of Hor for my Egyptian exploration item because I have always thought Egyptian cartonnages were beautiful and detailed and their techniques used to make them fascinated me. I have always felt Ancient Egyptian “obsession” of death stemmed from the old age question of “what happen when we die?”
