He realized his brother didn’t make it and cried. At the end of the story, the text says,”Doodle, Doodle.’ There was no answer but the ropy rain. I began to weep, and the tear- blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar. ‘Doodle!’
For Example, as Paul speaks to his mother, he feels an incredible sadness due to the fact that it is no longer acceptable for him to show emotion: “Ah! Mother, Mother! You still think I am child- why can I not put my head in your lap and weep? Why have I always to be strong and self-controlled?” (183).
When he was 6, he already had poor behaviour where he stole a toy from a store but returned it and apologized after getting caught by his mother. He had few friends in his school but was bullied by some classmates and neighbours. When he was in Grade 4, he experienced blackout. He lived his life at the hospital from 14 to 18 therefore was not able to go to school. When he was little, he had psychological problems so he was said to take a psychiatric evaluation which took 17 days.
(564) all the while shielding him from the rain, the final consequence of the pride that ruled the life of the narrator. His guilt from not saving or waiting for Doodle is evident in the way he reacts to Doodle’s body. He panics, realizing the mistake he made in leaving Doodle behind, repeatedly calling out his name as if calling for him to wake up. When it sinks in that Doodle is truly gone, the narrator weeps for Doodle, crying “for a long time, it seemed forever, [he] lay there crying, sheltering [his] fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain” (564), knowing he would never get Doodle
Sledge describes his first reaction of his team getting slaughtered as “A wild desperate feeling of anger, frustration and pity gripped me. It was an emotion that always would torture my mind when I saw men trapped and was unable to do anything but watch as they were hit. My own plight forgotten momentarily, I felt sickened to the depths of my soul. I asked God, ‘why, why, why?’ I turned my face away and wished that I were imagining it all.
If Achilles can be sad, he is not just full of rage. Although he can be an angry monster, Achilles can show his feelings. " …a black cloud of grief came shrouding over Achilles. / Both hands clawing the ground for soot and filth, he poured it over his head, fouled his handsome face… Overpowered in all his power, sprawled in the dust, / Achilles lay there, fallen…" (468) Achilles is furious when he loses Patroclus. This evidence proves that, because of this major loss, Achilles becomes even more
I said “Nothing but a goddamn coward!” I don’t know how many times I hit him. All I know is that , when I finally stopped, exhausted and panting, Hassan was smeared in red like he’d been shot by a firing squad. I fell to my knees, tired,spent,frustrated.” (98)
The only reason a Brother taught Doodle how to walk was for his own personal gain. Brother is ashamed of Doodle because of his disability and [Doodle] walked only because [Brother] was ashamed of having a crippled brother. It is incredibly selfish to put your personal gain over someone else’s illness, especially if it's your own baby brother.
This shows Hughes frustration that he cannot see Jesus and can no longer wait. Hughes feels that he is holding everything up and disappointing everyone. The pressure reaches its peak when he becomes the last one on the mourner’s bench after Westley was saved. He creates a vivid image of what it was like to be under that much pressure and to just do what his aunt and the church wanted. He informs the audience that he lost his faith in this statement “But I was really crying because I couldn’t bear to tell her that I had lied and that I hadn’t seen Jesus, and that now I didn’t believe there was a Jesus any more, since he didn’t come to help me” (Hughes,
His speech uses a lot of emotive language, such as ‘piercing sorrow for him will bring me down to Hades’ and ‘how I wished he could have died in my arms’. This shows Priam’s anguish over the loss of his son to Achillius, and he even suggests going to try and retrieve the body so Hektor can be properly mourned. This makes Hektor’s death quite moving, as we see Priam, a great king of troy, weeping and bargaining for Hektor’s life, and rolling around in the dirt in sorrow. The image of a king being broken to such an extent is particularly tragic, especially after the speech Priam gave earlier about the misery he and his family will go through if Hektor died. These images create sympathy in the reader or listener, and show how great a loss Hektor’s death is for Priam and for Troy
When everyone in camp was crying and asking where God was as they all watched the boy struggle to cling on to life, Elie had thought to himself that God was there “hanging…from [the] gallows”, symbolizing his loss of faith in God. From then on, as Rosh Hashanah passed, Elie felt intense hatred for God as He did nothing to help the thousands of people suffering and being murdered. Elie refused to sanctify God’s name because of the immense pain He was causing, and felt angry that others in the camp continued to worship Him. Elie felt “terribly alone in a world without God, without man” and “without love or mercy”. As everyone prayed, Elie felt like “an observer [and] a stranger” because he had disconnected from God, and as he defiantly continued to eat instead of fasting for Yom Kippur, Elie “felt a great void opening” inside him as his last bit of trust in God faded.
[He] had lost [his] sense of touch. [His] hands and feet punched and kicked the burning walls, [he] couldn’t feel a thing” (Beah 95). In this moment, Ishmael lost almost any hope he had left of getting out of the war. Ishmael was mentally too far gone to have hope, and all he has left is revenge for his family. Without his family when Ishmael finally arrived in Yele where the government was, he was willing to join the army in revenge for his family.
Mercutio’s ignorant decision to duel Tybalt led him to his own death and grief of friends and family. Mercutio was not aware of the consequences he would be facing because of his own decision. He announces in the text, “Ask for/me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man. I/am peppered, I warrant, for this world. A plague o '/both
In other words he bends to pressure even though he isn’t ready to be saved. This leads to another theme in the story – sadness. He is heartbreakingly sad for not seeing Jesus and for lying to his aunt. “But I was really crying because I couldn 't bear to tell her that I had lied, that I had deceived everybody in the church that I hadn 't seen Jesus, and that now I didn 't believe there was a Jesus anymore, since he didn 't come to help me.
