These stories are very similar in that both Matt and Emily kill out of love for someone, but Matt's murder is for closure after his son Frank is killed, where as Emily's is because she is afraid of being alone. Emily is portrayed by the narrator, who seems to speak for the whole town, “we”. Her character traits are peculiar due to the manner in which her father raised her. She obviously had issues about her over protective father. When her father died, all the ladies offered condolences, “Miss Emily met them at the door, dressed as usual and with no trace of grief on her face.
Sociology enables us to understand how society functions and under which circumstances. It examines the way humans interact with social changes and with other societies. Additionally, sociology focuses on examining social dynamics such as culture, values, socialization, violence, inequality and order. Other social sciences concentrate on more specific things about a society. Instead of studying social economics as a whole, other social sciences may study about the distribution of economic goods and how it affects an individual.
Families are full of love and hope but to annihilate that all is a complete act of putrid evil and hate. War gives illusional rights to these inhumane beings that these acts are a part of life which they aren’t. Natural death should be the cause of all these lives, not innocent murder. War is the reason these families blood has been spilt. After all these past events, the 1800’s wars, The Boer War, WWI, WWII and The Cold War, you’d think we’d all have learnt our lesson that war was destroying people, along with the world.
The government or the church should not fool them, and manipulate them as salves. Hank points out that all of the taxes comes from these poor independent workers, neither the church nor the bishops pays slightly of it. Every single man of the family must work gratis for the lord and bishop, and no one ever denies this. Why? How come no one ever has the urge to stand up for them, to claim for what they deserve?
The reasons are evident: the war that separated the country in the mid nineteenth century still drives a wedge between some; the war, its causes, and effects were abundant and difficult and affected nearly every part of American society; and it seems that the bloodier, more complex the event, the more words we use to describe, and justify its events and effects. Through a narrative telling of the Civil War, McPherson is able to focus on two major themes, which he carries throughout the book. These themes appear consistently, and act as a thesis. The first is to examine “the multiple meanings of slavery and freedom, and how they dissolved and re-formed into new patterns in the crucible of war” (viii). McPherson's constant reminders that slavery (and its opposite, freedom) is central to the story.
You are either going to agree or disagree with her. You either leave their fate in God’s hands, or you take it upon yourself (or your doctor) for an instant relief of ones that are suffering. I agree with Susan on every aspect in this story, except, when she says, “There was a price to be paid for going the longer way, not the shorter one. My father died slowly. He died loved and loving.” How could there have been a price to be paid when at the end, it was the closest they had ever been in “fifty-four years”?
Feeling successful, Sara returns home to find her mother fatally ill. After her mother's death, her father remarries only to find his new wife, Mrs. Feinstein, is a gold-digger after his late wife's lodge money. Sara and her sisters, still angry over their father's treatment of them, become enraged at his quick marriage after their mother's death and refuse to help him when his new wife spends all his money and refuses to work.

Richards tried to shield Mrs. Mallard from seeing her husband except it was too late. Once Mrs. Mallard laid eyes on whom she believed to be her late husband she collapsed and died. (Chopin 1894) When the doctor had seen Mrs. Mallard he said “she died of heart disease-of joy that kills." (139) it was assumed that she was so happy her husband was alive and she died from the shock. When in fact were the opposite it was her husband being alive and the thought of giving up her new found freedom and becoming repressed again?
He is accusing not just the Great Depression, but the entirety of American government for the overwhelming population of impecunious people in the 1900’s. In both Steinbeck’s novel and Lange’s photograph, the way of life for the thousands of destitute Americans is portrayed in the lives of one or two. The woman in Lange’s photograph, Florence Owens Thompson, depicts a deeper demon of a halved family in search for better lives during a time that would later be looked upon as one of the longest and hardest recessions of all time. She is the face of the million migration workers in search for their own American Dream. They all traveled to California in search of a better life, and instead they got hunger, extreme poverty, and an insane amount of discrimination.
She would no longer have to live for him nor anyone else, only herself. As the day approaches night, a dear friend of her husband’s walks through the door and behind him her dead husband. She collapses right there at the bottom of the stairwell. The doctors said she had died of “heart disease-a joy that kills” (par 23). Although it may seem as the thought of her husband dying brought her joy, it was actually the desire to live for herself, which brought her
