After the death of Otto Plath, it can be seen that the emotional trauma that she faced upon her father’s passing away resurfaced in the poem, ‘Daddy’. Not only was it a way for her to express her feelings about her father but she also found it as a way to surface the feelings she had for her husband in a comparative way. The poem itself is seen in a very dark and exasperated tone but the feeling of nostalgia and loneliness is also carried out as she reminisces the memories of her father and the longing to see him. Within her poem, she writes, “At twenty I tried to die/ And get back, back, back to you.” The personal reference to her suicide attempt and the explanation supported, exposes the readers into the trauma she faced and what led to her tragic attempt at death.
The Journey to Self-forgiveness of a Morally Ambiguous Character Guilt is like a scar; it is a painful reminder of an unpleasant situation and is ugly until accepted and moved on from. However, unlike some scars, guilt can dissipate over time as individuals learn to forgive themselves for their wrongdoing. Guilt, along with self-forgiveness, is frequently seen with morally ambiguous characters, such as Amir from Khaled Hosseini’s novel The Kite Runner. In the story, a young Amir fails to protect his friend Hassan from the antagonist, Assef, which results in the profound guilt that follows him into his adult life.
It is obvious to readers that Huck is deeply afraid of dying because he is still a child but it almost seems that on every page that he is cheating death. On the other hand Sylvia Plath 's “I am Vertical” explains the bliss that she would enjoy if she was lying down dead rather than standing up living.

Loss is an experience unique to each individual and James McAuley and Gwen Harwood explore this in their poems “Pietà” and “In the Park”. The free verse “Pietà” bears witness to the physical loss a father endures on the anniversary of his son’s death, while in contrast, the sonnet “In the Park” explores the loss of self-identity that a mother feels in her role as a parent. The physical loss that accompanies the death of a loved one is depicted in “Pietà” when the narrator recounts how his son came metaphorically “Early into the light” of life, “Then died” one year prior. By accepting the part that death plays in one’s life, he acknowledges that “no one (is) to blame” for the loss, however, this resignation does not console his anguish. Just as he is consumed by his grief, so too is the mother in Harwood’s narrative but her pain stems from a loss of self-identity due to motherhood.

All of the main characters have regrets and can’t forget about their lives in the past and only time will heal and let them move on.

I strongly truly believe heartbreak or a loss of a loved one can change who you are as a person. Physically some people may lose weight or gain it. Just like in the The Raven. The man dwells on how he has lost his beloved wife.
I have known people that have died slowly and painfully and it is very hard to see loved ones live in pain and pass away in pain. I could not begin to imagine what they were experiencing and having to live with. The Death with Dignity Act would provide those people with an alternative choice to the awful circumstances their medical conditions have put them in. This would allow those certain people to be able to pass peacefully and on their own terms. That is why I have chosen to write about the Death with Dignity Act.
