After Doodle buries the ibis, he is invited to dessert, yet denies this offer, announcing that “‘[he was] not hungry’” (562). As animals often forgo consuming food before death, this notion can be interpreted into a prediction that Doodle would soon die. The narrator’s Aunt Nicey is prompted to declare that “‘dead birds [are] bad luck, [especially] red dead birds’“(562). It foreshadows the narrator’s remorse by integrating Doodle’s death with the superstition of misfortune and the color red. In the following events, Doodle dies from exhaustion under a red nightshade bush containing poisonous berries, symbolizing death and forcing the narrator to regret the spite in him that led to his brother’s demise.

Puritanism, a version of Calvinism, addresses the sinfulness of man and claims that God has predetermined those who will be saved and those who won’t; despite their sins. In the poem “Here Follow Some Verses Upon the Burning of Our House, July 10, 1666,” Anne Bradstreet recounts a tragic accident that occurred and how she used it to glorify God. Jonathan Edwards conducted sermon titled, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” in Connecticut, 1741.

Therefore, Orpheus fails the final step of the hero journey. Furthermore, Orpheus dies a horrible death “They slew the gentle musician, tearing him limb from limb, and Hung the severed head into the swift river Hebrus.” (Hamilton 2) Therefore Orpheus is not a hero. Unlike the Oliver poem, Orpheus did not listen to his inner voice “He knew that she must be just behind him, but he longed unutterably to give one glance to make sure”. (Hamilton 2) Orpheus accepted what he must do in order to live his authentic life with Eurydice. Instead, he turned to her, it was too soon because Eurydice was still in the cavern which was too early “She had slipped back into the darkness” thus she was gone.
Throughout the poem, “Thanatopsis”, William Cullen Bryant’s positive view surrounding death appears to be consoling. Bryant states his belief that everyone is bound to die at one point. All people are bound to die at one point, and every individual “shalt lie down with patriarchs of the infant world-with kings… the wise, the good, fair forms ” (Bryant 171) Death appears to be reassuring in that it is viewed as inevitable because no matter the person’s social status, in death everyone is equal and exempt from mistreatment. Another way Bryant makes death seem comfortable is by stating that people will not go through any consequences when they pass away. As an example of having no consequences, Bryant states “What if thou withdraw in silence
