Much. It was just the shock. All better now.””. After her death another lack of recognition happened to Lambert’s dad who did not want to believe that the previous accident was the course of her suicide: “”Did she take them on purpose?” I asked. “Of course not,” Dad said.
Edmond went on to explain that he didn’t even realize that the locket was gone until after the war. He had assumed that he had lost the locket during the war but now realized that his had been stolen. “The locket” contained a twisted plot in that it made the reader believe that Edmond had been killed during the war. As the reader kept reading, the end was fairly predictable because of the conversation that Octavie had with Judge Pillier and the mention of miracles. What also made the story predictable is when the clergyman found the locket around the young soldier’s neck and then mailed it to Octavie.
That made them support the Civil War without the thought of the fact that they could fail. Although Scarlett O’Hara – the main character had something different from the ladies in the South, she had the same life with them. She had such a perfect life that she was vain, selfish and self-centered. To illustrate, Scarlett quickly agreed to marry Charles Hamilton to revenge Ashley Wilkes who she loved he did not want to build a family with her but his cousin, Melanie
Antigone seems more morally good and therefore we feel more compassion for her. Antigone is a more emotional character than Kreon. She mentions the love she has for her brother and the importance of her family in the first conversation she has with Ismene (1-99). I believe that her initial reasoning for wanting to bury Polyneices body is because the emotions of grief over took her as exemplified here “I’ll lie there, dear to him, with my dear friend,” (73). Her emotions overtake her in the end when she kills herself and dies a martyr’s death.
In “The Story of an Hour” Mrs. Mallard’s friends and family take great care when trying to give her the news that her husband had been killed in a railroad disaster. Little do they know, Mrs. Mallard isn’t completely saddened by this, but in a way relieved. Both groups were plagued by something, but interpreted them in different ways. Others in “The Old Man with Enormous Wings” find him fascinating, and tried to play with him, but throughout the story the family just uses him for their own personal gain, and even thinks about killing, or abandoning him. Mrs. Mallard, instead of being broken by the death of her husband, is happy, because she would now long for the years that would “belong to her absolutely.” (288) She welcomed the future years that she could spend by herself, for herself, no longer having a will overpowering her own.
The news about what had happened goes around fast, and the nurse tells Juliet about what has happened, but fails to tell Juliet that Romeo is exiled from the town until later, so Juliet thinks in the beginning that Romeo had died, too. When Juliet finds out that her husband had killed her cousin, Mercutio, she doubts about who she had married but she tells herself that she is newly married and should stay faithful to her husband. Lord Capulet hears all of the crying around him and thinks that a wedding would cheer everyone up. He states to Paris, “Things had fall’n out,sir, so unluckily That we have had no time to move our daughter. Look you, she lov’d her kinsman Tybalt dearly, And so did I.” (3.4.1-4).
At the end of Oedipus the King Creon’s sister, Jocasta, dies. In Antigone Creon loses his wife, son, and kingdom but this all brought upon by himself. His pride and stubbornness lead him to lose all he has so this is not a contributing factor of to being tragic hero. Creon may have been a good person but he had few admirable qualities. At the beginning of the trilogy Creon is a very understanding person, he cares for his family, forgives Oedipus, and promises to take care of Oedipus’s children: Ismene, Antigone, Polyneices, and Eteocles.
I can’t lose you now, too.” - Liesel, having already lost three people, faces yet another loss, but this is no regular loss. Liesel loves Hans to death, and learning that he must aid efforts in World War II takes a huge toll on her emotions. The things she use to find pleasure in doing no longer feel the same. 2. “I should have stayed, I should have stayed….” - Michael feels extreme guilt for leaving his mother behind during the bombing raid, even though she willingly stayed behind.
Gatsby was in love with a girl named Daisy. They had seen each other for sometime but then Gatsby had to go to war. Even though Daisy married Tom Buchanan, Gatsby never fell out of love with her. This is evident when it is said that, “Gatsby bought that so that Daisy would be just across the bay.” Gatsby would try and get her attention by buying that big house and having parties. “But of course I’ll say I was.” Gatsby said this proving that he would do anything to protect Daisy, which demonstrates how much he really does love her.
