To begin, Mildred, Montag’s wife, tries to kill herself by overdosing on sleeping pills. This is an event that makes the reader see that people are obviously unhappy in their day to day lives. The medical team comes to clean out Millie’s insides, and in this moment, machine is more alive than she. Mildred is cold and dead while this machine is slithering down and cleaning her of the toxins. Montag begins noticing how unimportant she is to him; “And he remembered thinking then that if she died, he was certain he wouldn’t cry” shows how messed up society is (Bradbury 44).
It is known that loneliness sometimes makes us senseless. In Susan Glaspell’s “A Jury of her Peers” loneliness made Minnie Foster irrational. Mrs. Hale assumes that Mrs. Wright is guilty of killing her husband because of her nonchalant answers she gives when being interrogated about her husband’s location. During the story the reader will learn more about Mrs. Wright, or Minnie Foster, and how her personality changed drastically through her twenty years of marriage with John while Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters are covering up the tracks that they presume led to murder. They conclude that loneliness made her lose herself which is evident throughout the short story.
In the play, Sheila says “between us we drove that girl to commit suicide” Sheila knows that their whole family is responsible for the suicide of Eva Smith but the other family members don’t agree with her. The quote suggests that they were the reason she took her life as she was unhappy with what life had done to her and how inequitable life was for her. Throughout the inspector’s interrogation of the Birling family, we can see how Mr. and Mrs. Birling considered themselves innocent and were not responsible for her death. Eva Smith and women, in general, were treated as dolls for men and their corrupt mind during the entirety of the play. Woman were all portrayed as simple and oppressed characters.
This would be the equivalent to a mother leaving her child at the hospital because she did not like the way it looked when it was first born. Allene Stuart Phy retells the scene when he writes, "As soon as the creature showed life and his horrible eye opened, Frankenstein was seized by remorse and fled his quarters, thereby deserting the being he had brought to life and refusing to take any responsibility for him” (“Frankenstein: The Book…”). It shows how, at an early age, the monster was left alone to fend for himself, not because he was at a fault of any kind, but purely because he looked horrid in Frankenstein’s

Montag's wife on (pages 17-19) tries to kill herself because she is depressed. She doesn't remember it and gets offended by what montag says.

That she will be fine that all they have to do is use this crude machine to poop everything out of her and put in some new fluid in her.
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. Through these five deaths in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, as well as Green’s Looking for Alaska, both authors convey a similar message to readers that death leaves people with nothing physically, yet it affects the people in the surrounding emotionally, with feelings of loneliness, anger, and guilt. Feeling of Loneliness by Death Candy from Of Mice and Men faces the feeling of loneliness after his old dog died.
After the narrator finds out about Charlie’s death, she is hysterically crying about his death (19-20). Her father then offers her alcohol to stop the pain, and by doing this and not talking about the conflict, Charlie committing suicide, the conflict just goes unresolved for the narrator (20). The narrator begins to build up intrapersonal conflict because she is just drinking the pain away, but in reality the internal conflict of Charlie killing himself is still there for the narrator. She does not express her feeling much except for when Charlie died. For example, when she is on the phone with Jeremy she claims that she is forced to go to the funeral, but she actually wants to go (20-21).
Through Hazel’s depression, Gus’s influence, and her realization on the importance of life, John Green’s The Fault in our Stars, shows that one should embrace the life you want, not dwell on the one you have right now.

When her mom made her go to support group she recorded every episode she would miss while she wa there. She only stopped when she met Augustus. She got to go to Amsterdam and meet Peter Van Houten because of Gus.
To make up for the vandalism, Jem read to her every day until her demise, at longer intervals each day. She was slowly getting off drugs, even though she could’ve used them for a painless death: “ Mrs. Dubose won… she died beholden to nothing and nobody. She was the bravest person I ever knew” (112). The pain she went through is what made her inspiring; she could’ve taken the easy way out, but instead she fought for what her heart told her was right, no matter the cost. Having the power to do something, such as pull the gun, is not courage; true courage takes struggle: “ I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand” (112).
