Likewise Poe’s foster mom who died of tuberculosis too. Similarly, Dahl at 3 years old, witnessed his dad and sisters die of illness. Besides, both authors resemble each other, because they went through poverty. In fact, Poe wanted to be part of the Allan’s (foster family), for the fact that he was an orphan at a young age. However, Dahl had a close relationship with his mom (took care of him) who worked as a mystic and told people’s fortunes.
Name: Jessica Instructor: Miss. Sully Date: 4.17 Class: EN401-1 Analysis of rot and decay in Hamlet William Shakespeare 's Hamlet has been considered the greatest tragedy in literature and drama.In Hamlet, William Shakespeare expresses both psychological and physical corruptions in this book making people have deep introspection.As we read about Hamlet, the background and atmosphere which the author Shakespeare create was rot and decay of the whole country. “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”(Shakespeare 1.1 - 4) .

The short story is rather entertaining because you have to think past what the author writes, and create for yourself your own depiction of what the meaning is. One example is when Mrs. Mallard says, “free, free, free!” (Chopin). The reader would expect Mrs. Mallard to be upset at the loss of her husband, but in fact, she is actually feeling relief from it. Mrs. Mallard is happy because she is now free from living under her husband. Another example of Kate Chopin’s usage of irony is at the end when its said, “ they said she died of heart disease- of joy that kills” in a since they are right.
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. Readers of both texts can see a clear divide in how the concept of death is portrayed.Through The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “I am Vertical”, the works of Mark Twain and poet Sylvia Plath reveal that the concept of death can be bliss for some and sickening for others by using diction, imagery, and point of
The chapter that stuck out to me most for giving perspective that I lacked prior to reading this book. My favorite quote from chapter being the first, “Mother, I bring sad news: your son was killed facing the enemy.” The mother said, “He is my son.” “Your other son is alive and unhurt,” said the messenger. “He fled from the enemy.” The mother said, “He is not my son.”( chapter-1 pg-1 ). Aside from the very obvious strong female angle, the quote spoke to me on a personal level. The mother denouncing her commitment to her son for his act of Cowardice is a strong lesson.
Whereas other authors would prefer writing from the victim’s perspective during the war, Markus Zusak gives insight on the Germans that had no choice but to grudgingly obey throughout Hitler’s rule. Though Markus Zusak has written many other good books, The Book Thief is his bestselling book for its outstandingly distinct writing, perspective, and story of love. The story starts off with an abrupt death of a young boy, which sends Liesel away to the Hubermann’s home in a state of grief. Despite her low spirits, she quickly makes friends with Rudy Steiner and learns to love her adoptive parents, Hans and Rosa. Hans develops a close and loving relationship with Liesel, who sees him as her support and guidance throughout her adolescent years.
She had no intention of reading the book, since she saw it as a symbol. It represented the last time she saw her mother (because she was sent away to a foster family) and her brother. When her foster father, Hans Huberman, discovered the book she had brought with her, he decided to help her become literate. Together they spent hours learning the how to read as a way to comfort her when she had one of her frequent nightmares. That helped Liesel forget her fears when she had a nightmare, formed a lasting bond between the new family, and also helped her realize her thirst for words.
He had loved his wife a lot that her death turned him around. He thought that his wife would return as ghost but who knew that she had the most horrific death which came to the notice of him at the end of the story.

The Lenore his love can represent someone who is very dear to us and whom when we lose them we will grieve a lot. Poe on the other hand represent the true person who has to bear the loss and go through various stages of losses from denial to anger displacement to even depression. It was very wise of the author ton leave out the suicide part since it would mean that people who grieve after the loss of a loved one will always end up in depression followed by suicide. Though many a times readers and scholars wonder what was really going through Poe’s mind as he was writing this great masterpiece, an in-depth analysis of the language, symbols and the overall theme of the poem can be deduced. These five elements show us the psychological weaknesses of the protagonist in the poem The Raven.
In “POOF!”, Loureen says goodbye to Samuel and at the end, she decided to sweep the ashes under the carpet. In “Trifles”, Minnie also accepts her husband’s death. When Mr. Hale talks to Minnie about where her husband is and if he can visit John, she simply laughs and says no because he’s dead. It is clear to understand that she accepts his death because she can already confirm it out loud. In conclusion, “Trifles” and “POOF!” focus on similar issues and have some similarities, but they also have a ton of differences.
