With the information that the father is dead the reader can make the connection that the father character is only how the main character saw his father and how he felt that they were connected or
Oliver writes “After that, all their nerves click like frozen leaves.” This verse in the poem is referring to the previous two verses which were written in the past tense. Essentially, the young men look back into their lives and understand the pointlessness of young deaths. They can see that life is not all about killing or fighting. Oliver finishes off the poem with the lines “They think of this world welcoming/the bodies of their sons.” Although the young men finally understand the hopelessness of the violence, it is too late as all they can see is the death of their children. The “glory” in fighting in death is now gone, as well as their

During his talk with Mama, Walter bitterly talked about how he learned an important life lesson the hard way. After he had been deceived, he realized that life isn’t what he dreamed it was, “Life just like it is. Who gets and who don’t get.” (He sits down with his coat on and laughs) (pg.141). Walter used a sarcastic, dry humorous tone to shows that he is indifferent to anything now. He seems to have lost his purpose, sense of direction, in life.

Once a chronic drunk, Carton at least can refrain from drinking around the Darnay family, showing his increased respect and care for others. His final act in the world, however, is what brings him full redemption for his struggle. As Darnay is sentenced to the guillotine, Carton decides to take his place and die for him, and for his family. Dickens sums up what Carton died for with a soliloquy, where he says, “I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants…I know that each was not more honoured and held sacred in the other’s soul, than I was in the souls of both.” Even though Carton

The Walking Dead has been known for its infuriating cliffhangers for a while now, but fans were certainly not expecting the most jaw-dropping ending in last night’s season finale. Although viewers were rewarded with a tense look at Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan, “Last Day on Earth” ended without revealing who the villain killed. Now TWD executive producer Robert Kirkman has spoken up about the cliffhanger, stating that the point of the episode was to change Rick’s “mindset!” The TWD comic book creator was one of the guests on Talking Dead (via ComicBook.com), where he addressed fans’ complaint about the cliffhanger. “First of all, as a fan, I love cliffhangers. I love that tension,” Kirkman admitted.
