The extreme sadness faced by Remarque, inspired him to communicate to readers the strong brother-like bond between comrades, and the empty, hopeless feelings which accompany a death of a comrade which soldiers are supposed to simply except rather than grieve. Finally, the intentional actions of Remarque when composing the conclusion to his novel strongly portray his overall goal of communicating to his audience, that there are no true survivors of an atrocities such as World War 1, the severe psychological impacts on every soldier, including himself, are crushing and the weight of war was too much to bare by a young
In the end, nobody took a stand which allowed the hangman to hang everyone left in the town. When the hangman kept hanging more and more victims the narrator said, “No one spoke out of the fear for the hangman’s cloak” (poem). Citizens of the town were too scared to stand up for any of the victims because they didn’t want to be the next person to get hanged. At the end of the poem, when the hangman is about to hang his last victim, he said, “I did no more than you let me do”. The victim then said, “No voice there cried ‘stay’ for me in the empty square” (poem).

In the end his daydreams were not enough to save him, “His body, with a broken neck, swung gently from side to side” (840). This is the climax of where Bierce displays his beliefs of hatred towards war and fighting, since the “soldier-at-heart” is hung. He is not able to escape, like fairytales, because wars are real and people die, it is not a great adventure that people like to believe. Bierce resents war and hints to this undertone throughout An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, masking it with figurative language. Bierce subtly hints throughout the story about the folly of war and its destructions rather than its ability to solve disputes.
Good and Evil are cosmic forces at play in everything that occurs in life. In the novel A Separate Peace the main character, Gene, can be seen as evil. Gene's best friend Finny on the other hand can be seen as the 'good guy'. Throughout the novel there are many struggles between good and evil, both big and small. The three largest jabs are most definitely when Gene, without reason, starts thinking Finny is out to get him, another is obviously Gene jousting the branch Finny was on to make him fall, lastly when Gene is hiding by the doctor's window to hear what happened to Finny, and incredulously enough he starts to laugh uncontrollably.

Scrooge was shown a future in which he did not only die, but was forgotten and loathed by those close to him. To not be shown love even after he died was mind shattering to Scrooge, who expected someone to have some love and compassion for him. Scrooge 's nephew, clerk, and housekeeper had all forgotten, or hated Scrooge in life, and continued to hate him in death. This fear of being forgotten brought Scrooge to tears, and was one of the only things shown to him by the ghosts that he could not bear to look at. Evidence for this being a major factor is self-evident, Scrooge begged to know if he could change the future right after being shown his fate.
It is clear that Dr. Frankenstein is in a regretful mindset when he states, “I suffered living torture.” Meaning that he knew it was never Justine who killed William. However, he would never be able to speak up because he is fearful that he will be perceived as mad by his family and by the public. This was just one of the consequences that Frankenstein has to face due to his creation. Frankenstein also recognizes the fact that it is ultimately his own fault that William has died and that Justine will be wrongly sentenced for his death. Thus the reason he states that the trial is a “wretched mockery of justice.” The death of both William and Justine then lie on Victor Frankenstein’s shoulders.

He didn’t care if the cowboys thought he was too young. He would work hard, and stay out of the way. He was done with that little town, its sad people, and all the sorrow that had plagued his life. He relished the idea of being free. He could do nothing about the aching pain of how his dad died…in a self imposed sleep from too much of the sleeping salts, and a fallen candle that set off the fire.
Before the attack on his home is confirmed, Macbeth tells his servant, “As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have, but in their stead / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath” (5.3.25-27). After killing too many people, Macbeth finds no purpose in honor or having love like a king normally has because he has survived so long without them, so by now he has adapted to these emptinesses. He has come to the conclusion that friends are no longer necessary because they just create more issues and more curses. They give him a false hope of honor, but the honor will not help him now. Macbeth yearns for the honor which he abandons once he decides to follow Lady Macbeth’s advice.
