For example, Candy was the first to find out of the death so he retrieves George first. Candy then says,”What done it? George replies,”Ain’t you got any idear? I should of knew.” Not only do we know that Lennie killed Curley’s wife, but so does George himself.

When Sal’s father leaves to go find out who the only survivor was in her mother’s bus crash, it turns out that the only survivor is Mrs.Cadaver. After her father meets Mrs.Cadaver, they start to bond over Sal’s mother. This leads her father to get closer to Mrs.Cadaver, which causes Sal to believe that her father is forgetting about her mother and focusing more on Mrs.Cadaver. Sal says, “I hoped Mr.Birkway was in love with Margaret Cadaver and would marry her and take her away so that my father and I could go back to Bybanks,” (page 116). Sal wonders if Mr.Birkway will take Mr.Cadaver away then everything will go back to normal.
The students' cessation of doing Membean bothered Ms. Costello to the point where she decided to give her students an extra credit assignment. Tom Buchanan looked as if he was suffering from a malady when we began to realize his wife and his mistress were slowly slipping away from him. Abigail Williams and her lies appeared indomitable to John Proctor, which led him to accept death at the end of the story. Gatsby recognized Dan Cody was a pathological drinker, and after seeing the consequences of this level of drinking, vowed to stay sober.

By the end of the book everyone was okay, they started a new coffee shop, and re started with there lives. Trying to forget the horrible past of what had went down in 1793. Mattie used to be lazy, and careless, but now she 's brave and responsible. She was all alone after her grandfather died, she went through someone trying to rob their home, she had to take care of a child, a little girl, seeing her loved ones die, and her life how she knew it and was used to vanish right before her eyes, see dead people on the streets, not very kept up graves in which they piled bodies in a huge hole and buried them. Her grandfather was one of them.
Even though Christopher McCandless was only an adventurous young man trying to chase his dreams, that still does not account for all the careless mistakes he made in the process. His incompetence did not allow him to last even a mere six months in the destination in which he had desired to live in. His inability to take one’s advice left him with no clue as to what to do next. It was like he was living in the dark.

Alaska’s mother suffered aneurysm and she died. Alaska got into a car accident and she died. All of these events caused them to be dead and thus impacted those around them.

Feeling of Loneliness by Death Candy from Of Mice and Men faces the feeling of loneliness after his old dog died.
(“Poor Grendel’s had an accident,” I whisper. “ So may you all) (Gardner 174) Was the last words Grendel had to say in his last moments of life to the people watching him die. I believe that Grendel said this in the way of a curse to the people. Since Grendel meets the people at the beginning of the story after his bull attack, he believed that everyone was nice but after being with them for a short period of time he realizes that humans are evil. For example, in the book it states, “You’re all crazy,” I tried to yell, but it came out a moan.
Roberts effectively uses metaphors to express the complex, abstract concepts around suicide and human emotion in general. The article opens with the description of cleaning up the remains of her father.
