Greif. a strongly topic, but seriously mentioned.

These feelings copy changes a throw so deep it morphs into a psychological craziness, a feeling that the pain death brings has destroyed someone forever.
The first night alone is enough to traumatize and scar Elie forever, which is exactly what he’s saying here. I’ll be honest: this is the first book that has made me cry in a while. I cried when the child was hanged, I cried when I found out that Elie would have been saved by the Soviet Army if he stayed in the infirmary, and I cried when Elie’s dad died. Looking back on this passage, I feel like crying once again. Elie was my age when he was forced into Birkenau, and I can’t even begin to imagine experiencing these barbarities now.

In Don DeLillo’s Novel, White Noise (1985), the anxiety of death among the living thrives within the characters of Jack and Babette.

What is vastly contrasting, however, are the results of this manipulation seen as each poem develops to form vastly divergent interpretations of death; Poe’s “Spirits of the Dead” grows turbulent and melancholic, while Dickinson’s “Because I could not stop for Death” becomes relaxed. Interestingly, however, the speaker of “Spirits of the Dead” eventually comes to terms with death and accepts the mystery that clouds it, and in the poem’s final moments, Poe employs a similar use of imagery to Dickinson in its tranquility. Furthermore, Poe’s abstract exploration of death is expressed not in a clear and logical “journey” as Dickinson’s is, where throughout, the speaker guides the audience through a consecutive sequence of events. Instead, Poe predominantly explores the psyche in reaction to mourning, an already deeply abstract approach that is not necessarily grounded in physical reality. Additionally, earthly scenes contemplated do not clearly relate to each other, make sense in chronological order, nor are they substantiated by an ‘explanation’, but instead, they correlate with each relevant stage of mourning explored.
Collan is stuck in a jammed room for 2 days. As he looks to leave he notices that the free staters have secured the bottom floor as a base.

Billy has relived his death over and over again, he even went as far as to record it, “I Billy Pilgrim will die, have died, and always will die on February thirteenth, 1976” Slaughterhouse-five (134). Billy does this with a sound mind, the Tralfamadorians taught him that when a person dies that person isn’t dead their still alive in the past, he thinks it’s silly to cry at a funeral. If being able to think normally makes a person sane is Billy not sane?
Metaphors are commonly used throughout the text, whether malouf used it to emphasise certain gruesome aspects of war, or to express the mourning of a character over a friend lost in the battle lines. Imagery plays a major role in conveying various aspects within the storyline, particularly through the duration of Jim’s life at war. Particularly within the chapters following Jim entering the battle lines, Malouf applies hyperbole in his writing as an emphasis strategy, for the readers to be overwhelmed and have a detestation towards the concept of war. Malouf, using all of these literary techniques, and created a disheartening tale of a man’s journey through
In the novel All Quiet on The Western Front, written by Erich Maria Remarque, the constant exposure to war results in devastation. The protagonist Paul Baumer, is amongst soldiers fighting in WWI along the front. A main focus in the novel is the devastating effects that war has on the soldiers who fight in it.

Through Farquhar, Bierce shows how soldiers on both sides were merciless in their acts, a fact that would never be mentioned if Romantic writings were all that remained from this era. Fast forward several decades, World War Two has consumed the planet, and officers are just as cruel as they were in the Civil War. “Death of the Ball Turret Gunner” by Randall Jarrell, announces, through the form of a poem, the callousness of the military in WWII. A man thinks he is safe under the protection of the State, but the poem tells that, “When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.” (“Death of the Ball Turret Gunner” by Randall Jarrell). A warrior’s death is not nearly as romantic as legends would like one to believe, and this information would never reach the public if writers, such as Jarrell, never shared their experiences and observations with others through writing.
