1.The title is significant because it explains the feeling towards death and a dead body or as used in the title, corpse. This is letting you know that there is a slight fascination with death. Death occurs throughout the entire book and is ultimately what the book is revolved around. The two main and vital characters in the book are extremely fascinated with death and the idea of being the reason someone dies and lies lifeless. The after math of killing someone leaves them with a lifeless corpse that they would describe as exquisite.
Betrayal is a ghastly act that often ruins relationships permanently. It tears the two parties apart and builds a wall between each other. Betrayal is, unfortunately, not a hard concept to understand in William Shakespeare’s Tragedy of Macbeth. Macbeth and Banquo’s relationship was long and emotional, for they were best friends and war comrades. This only makes the betrayal of Macbeth even more unforgivable, knowing that he only did so for himself.

In the book “The Things They Carried”, Tim O’Brien admits to killing only one man during his war career, and relays it in the chapter “The Man I Killed”. In this chapter, O’Brien surveys the mangled body of the Vietnamese man he has just murdered, and desperately attempts to humanize the dead man as a coping method for his guilt. The chapter embodies a unique, and extremely detailed repetitive writing style which serves as a symbol of O’Brien’s scrutiny over his irrevocable action. The chapter begins with an exceptionally detailed description of the Vietnamese soldier’s body, as O’Brien surveys his destruction.

After he shot and killed the enemy sniper, he wanted to be sure he killed him so he went to see him. He got shot at by machine guns. When the firing stopped, he went to the body. He turned it over and it was his brother. The theme was made clear when the story said ¨The sniper turned over the dead body and looked into his brother´s face.¨(Page 9)
In front of this building is also where Myrtle is killed. After Myrtle is murdered, Wilson looks at the billboard of T.J. Eckleburg, saying “God sees everything” but T.J. Eckleburg wore “a pair of enormous yellow spectacles” which gives it an ungodly and deathly presence (160; 23). Myrtle being killed by a yellow car, outside of a yellow building, while Eckleburg watches with yellow spectacles is no coincidence, it’s largely an example of death. Yellow is an artificial representation of wealth and a portrayal of corruption and death. The multiple times yellow is mentioned make the corruption of it express how terrible the events in The Great Gatsby really were.
When Hamlet looks upon the skull of his old jester, he sees the aftermath of death. He envisions how the body decomposes into bones, and later to dust as he references Julius Caesar’s corpse as dust used to make walls. Hamlet’s
The effects of the setting on Wiesel are reflected in the way he ends book, talking about how he is essentially dead now. The look in Wiesel’s eyes as he gazed at himself in the mirror never left him (Wiesel, __) because he was so malnutritioned that he literally looked like a corpse. When he saw himself, he was so surprised that that image has stuck with him. In fact, they were so starved that their “first act as free men was to throw [themselves] onto the provisions ... no thought of revenge, or of parents.
“I became the hunted…” I looked down at him, unable to look into his eyes just looking at the blood stain sand, then said the words I’ve been holding back for years. “I love you Whitney...” I looked up and saw the stillness in his eyes and saw the last breath float away. Whitney was dead and I killed him.
In the chapter when he describes the man he kills, he talks about the state of the dead body by saying, “His jaw was in his throat, his upper lip and teeth were gone, his one eye was shut, his other eye was a star-shaped hole…the skin at his left cheek was peeled back in three ragged strips, his right cheek was smooth and hairless, there was a butterfly on his chin, his neck was open to the spinal cord and the blood there was thick and shiny and it was this wound that had killed him” (O’Brien Chapter 11). This brutal and horrifying imagery displays an irrefutable element of truth to O’Brien’s writing. Not only does this imagery highlight the truth to his writing, but it also sheds light on the brutal truth about the war in Vietnam. By using imagery as such a strong rhetorical device in his writing, he gives the average person a taste of just how barbaric and cruel Vietnam felt for the people who experience the war first hand on either side of the fighting. Tim O’Brien gives a very detailed and intense description of his time fighting in Vietnam during their war with America.
When the battle front moved close to the camp, the clearing where the Jews were fed had two cauldrons of soup. Everyone sat in the shadows unsure of whether they should take the risk, for they knew it would be suicide. One man dared challenge the status quo and ran towards the soup, but he was shot in the back and “[fell] to the ground, his face stained by the soup” (60). As the battlefront
After the attack, Boo gently carried Jem to Atticus so that Dr. Reynolds could take a look at him. At first, Atticus thought that Jem had killed Mr. Ewell, but Mr. Tate insisted that he fell on his knife. As they were arguing, Atticus realised that Boo had killed Mr. Ewell. Atticus and Mr. Tate knew that Boo would be killed if the town found out that he had killed Bob Ewell, and so they agreed that Mr. Ewell fell on his knife. When Atticus asked Scout if she understood the situation, she said “...
