On a fishing trip, Huck was roaming around and noticed a remote canoe free flowing down the river, and he took it and stashed it in a little steam to make sure his father would not notice. Throughout the months he was in the cabin, Huck was slowly sawing out a hole in the floor of the cabin with an old saw he found. When his father was out to sell the timber for whiskey, Huck executed his master plan. While he was gone, Huck gathers up his supplies and leaves the cabin through the hole he sawed in the back of the cabin. Then, he proceeded to create his unfortunate “death” scene.
Section 3 delivers the shocking ending. The reader has been beguiled into believing that Farquhar has escaped hanging and is on his way back to his home, wife, and possibly even children. Then at the very end, when he is about to “clasp his wife” he “feels a stunning blow upon the back of the neck” and the narrative moves backwards in time to the Owl Creek Bridge , where the end is told from a dispassionate, objective point of view.“Payton Farquhar was dead, his body , with a broken neck, swung gently from side to side beneath the timbers of the Owl Creek
Which reveals that there is often repetitiveness in the town's history, when someone is in need for help. When Wright Grey was a detective for the Haddan police he was most known for “...his rescue of three foolish kids from the Haddan School who’d skated onto thin ice… boys who would have surely died had Wright not arrived with a rope and his own obstinate refusal to let them drown” (109). Then, when Abe found Gus in the river and had suspicions of how he died,“He thought about that dark mark on the boy’s forehead, a bruise the color of wild iris, and he decided that for once in his life he would pay attention. He would take note of what this drowning boy had to say” (124). When Wright’s “refusal to let them drown,” it reveals that he was very determined to help them and not let them die.
Ryna’s sorrow was so pronounced that the people of Shalimar referred to a canyon as Ryna’s Gulch, as a result of the wind making the gulch sound like a sobbing woman. Hagar, in the end, died of a broken heart, left behind and unloved by a man obsessed with his own freedom: “[Milkman] had left her. While he dreamt of flying, Hagar was dying” (332). While Morrison uses the motif of flight to illustrate escape of oppression, she also shows the effects on the women that are left behind, forgotten for a man’s ideas of personal
While this is happening, Rachel is driving home, her thoughts clouded by distractions around her, such as that of Connor holding a kite. On seeing him, she lifts her foot off the accelerator and her car starts moving faster in his direction. However, instead of hitting Connor, she drives over little Polly on her bicycle. Polly survives the accident but needs to have her arm amputated. Rachel is shattered at what she has done and confesses that she was trying to kill Connor, whom she thinks has killed Janie.
After World War 1, Germany was devastated, millions were dead and wounded and Germans had to cope with paying back enormous reparations which crippled the economy. Anton Shell Kaes points out that Hutter, a naive young man is ordered East just like the 1914 generation, and when he returns he is deeply traumatised, while his wife Ellen, who embodies the homefront, lives in fear. Hutter finds Orlok sleeping in his dirt filled coffin with his eyes creepily open (see Fig. 3), reminiscent of the war trenches where soldiers lived alongside their fallen comrades. The rats that infested the trenches and fed on the dead are the same rats that follow Orlok on the ship.
In any given situation when something impacting is happening in your surrounding many say to be an upstander and do the right thing but in reality many choose to be bystanders for the sake of their own good. In The Kite Runner, Amir chooses to be a bystander when witnessing his “friend” and servant Hassan get raped. He chooses not to intervene due to his fear of getting hurt, wanting his father’s desired approval and his fear of the judgement others would give him if he did intervene.
We were paid handsomely to try and find out why the townsfolk were disappearing up north near Foraloss and Wanderer’s Wood, about a five days walk. Rumor was, we were really looking for a wealthy merchant who went missing. (Coughs and loses his breath momentarily) What we found was death instead . It was my friend Anlard who had climbed the hill on the side of a stream when he found it….a way in. It was the
It was on the 15th September last that an agricultural labourer, James Flynn, in the employment of Mathew Dodd, farmer, of the Chauntry Farm, Withyham, perceived a briar pipe lying near the footpath which skirts the hedge in Lower Haycock. A few paces farther on he picked up a pair of broken binocular glasses. Finally, among some nettles in the ditch, he caught sight of a flat, canvas-backed book, which proved to be a note-book with detachable leaves, some of which had come loose and were fluttering along the base of the hedge. These he collected, but some, including the first, were never recovered, and leave a deplorable hiatus in this all-important statement. The note-book was taken by the labourer to his master, who in turn showed it to Dr. J. H. Atherton, of Hartfield.
