A positive change is that his love and respect for his wife is still alive even though she died a long time ago for instance, “Here in this room she died, and soul more white never through martyrdom of fire was led to its repose; nor can in books be read the legend of a life more benedight.”.

This is a negative change because he has been grieving for eighteen years, which means he has not moved on for eighteen
