She was surprisingly unbothered by the veil. She views “ the veil [as] a mere object rather than a sign or symbol” ( Freedman 216).

Please don’t. Please, Abner.” (Faulkner 267), she is trying to stop him from doing soothing he may regret later.

In “Button,Button” the author Richard Matheson was showing a love that is complicated and misunderstood because during the story the end was not foreshadowed on who was gonna die, but it definitely foreshadowed the fact that the button would get pushed and someone would end up losing their life at random. During the story, Matheson shows the disconnect between the Norma the curious wife and Arthur the parted and distant husband in the way that they have little to no communication skills between each other, “Why wont you talk about it?, Norma asked, Arthur’s eyes shifted as he brushed his teeth.” (Matheson 4). The way Matheson portrays there disconnection is threw actions and expression and word choice because he writes that arthur shifted his eyes and so to the reader it seems
