Poe’s Grim and Dreary Style Many writers express how they feel by the way they write, and how they see the world around them. Edgar Allan Poe is no exception to the rule. During the early years of Edgar Allan Poe, his father abandoned him, his mother, and two siblings. He later saw his own mother cough up blood and die, due to tuberculosis, a very slow death to encounter for a young age child. He was later adopted in 1811 by a couple who did not even want him (Marshall).

This proves ______the story is about death______________ because. The author says that, “Doodle! Doodle!

Myop has just found out that her world is not as she had thought it was for all these years and ends up more curious than before. In paragraph 7 Alice Walker describes the corpse in detail, and Myops innocence disappears altogether, “His head lay beside him” tells the reader that the man’s head is decapitated. Added to this the quote “all of them cracked or broken” conveys that this man had taken a real long beating before his death and that may have been the cause of his death. As the story goes into paragraph 8, Myop then discovers the real cause, and is aware of how evil the world can be, “rotted remains of a noose”. This portrays that the man had been hung ,and gradually Myop understands what has happened and is able to acknowledge the truth about
The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).

Victor felt sad during this time because “I thought of Elizabeth, of my father, and of Clerval.”(Shelley 162). Victor was long away from his “sister”, his dad and his friend, he just wanted to see his family and friend.
The poem is about the regret Fischl is feeling for the little Polish boy and the millions of people who lost their lives. Fischl wishes he was the one to suffer that pain and feels that he could have done something to stop it. Fischl uses parallelism in his poem he states, "and the world who said nothing" he repeats this line repeatedly to show how there were millions of people getting killed, no one stood up to help not even himself that is why he feels regret and wishes he could have done something. One of the important lines that made me like this poem was, "The world watch and did nothing" by this we know that millions of people like the little polish boy, who are getting targeted with war machine guns and no one standing up or they pretend nothing is there but, there is a lot. The world was blind and not noticing or acting on what is occurring in the world.
Throughout the book, metaphors seem to be hidden everywhere, but when broken down one idea is shown above the rest; Piggy was and still is the key to survival in any scope the book is peered through.

The fear of death got so intense that men ultimately thought death was the only way to escape. Death wasn’t only feared in a scared way, sometimes it was in a way that made men evil, Mitchell Sanders tells Alpha Company a story of a man who fled from his platoon to go and sleep with a Red Cross nurse only to return days later, excited more than ever about being back in combat because everything else was to peaceful and he wanted to hurt people again. Nightmares are feared by many people in society today but we have a way to escape and still live our lives. What happens when you live in your nightmare like every man in Vietnam did, not knowing when or how death was going to come for you, and knowing the only way of escaping that hell was to kill whatever stood in your way, to be wounded severely, or to give up life

No matter who you where in the war, everybody walked away with guilt. Jimmy Cross will never forgive himself over the death of Ted Lavender. “He had loved Martha more than his men, and as a consequence Lavender was now dead” (pg 7) Cross has to live with the fact that his distraction over Martha caused Lavender to die and as commanding officer he had responsibility over him. O’Brien feels the blame over the death of “a short, slender young man of about twenty” (pg 129) With the pain of killing this young man keeps O’Brien “writing war stories” (pg 129). With this remorse he feels the writing of the stories gives the man a history and a wife.
