This paragraph is found in the middle of William Faulkner’s short story “A Rose for Emily”. The narrator uses description to provide the reader with a clear image of Miss Emily’s funeral. As the writer consistently jumps backwards and forwards through time in his story, this excerpt takes us back to where the story began. This paragraph exemplifies one of Faulkner’s central themes in the story: the constant struggle between the past and present. This theme is most evident in the author’s description of the very old men.
How does Fitzgerald structure The Great Gatsby? Fitzgerald structures the events of The Great Gatsby in a very specific way in order to enhance the plot. The story’s events have apparently been scrambled, but it is in fact the sign of artistic order. Besides we get to know Gatsby much in the same way as in real life we become acquainted with a friend, namely progressively by fitting together fragments that are picked up as we read the novel. First Gatsby appears to Nick as a silhouette, an ambiguous figure that is almost unreal in the night: "fifty feet away a figure had emerged from the shadow of my neighbor’s mansion…regarding the silver pepper of the stars".
It is very important to know that Martyn Pig didn’t really care about his dad’s death. Furthermore, Martyn blackmailed Dean. “Dean in his black biker gear, pale face ugly and even whiter than usual”.

Pushed around long enough, and angry at the president for going soft on Castro -- who had shut down its lucrative Cuban casinos -- the mob made someone an offer he couldn't refuse. Oswald was either its hit man or its patsy. Upon his arrest, the mob dispatched Jack Ruby to silence him. Reasons to believe: •In 1979 the HSCA concluded that Hoffa, Marcello, and Trafficante all had the "motive, means, and opportunity" to assassinate Kennedy. •Hoffa had told a federal informant that he would like to kill RFK but that his brother was the more desirable victim because "when you cut down the tree, the branches fall with it."

One of the main topics about this story would be that Peyton Farquhar was told to blow up the owl creek bridge, as an act of will power, and communism.

During this whole process he goes back in time seeing events of his life making him regret his actions, and decisions.

400 years age, killing was a part of everyday, natural life. The people of these times believed that to have your father be murdered and runaway and not do anything to find out who has killed your father, the King of Scotland, was very cowardly.

I think it’s also interesting that Torres knew that the barber might kill him, but he still went to see if he would or not kill him. What surprised me about this story is that Torres knew all along that the barber might kill him. And he basically could have, or had sacrificed his life by going to the barber and having a razor right on his neck. I was also surprised that the barber didn’t go through with killing Torres. Because he kept going back and forth about killing him, and he kept on stating reasons why he should and shouldn’t kill him.
Peyton Farquhar, the main character of the story, becomes tricked into breaking a territorial rule during the civil war and will be hung for it. After the trickery and before his death the reader has difficulty distinguishing reality versus fantasy. This seen when Peyton, in the seemingly vast amount of time before death, experiences many flashbacks and we get lost for a little while in actually believing that he actually had escaped. It is until the author clues us back to reality when we realize that what had just happened was actually Peyton getting lost in the fantasy of his escape and forgetting that and that he was still going to be hung. In “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” Ambrose Bierce uses an unconventional plot structure in order to emphasize how the reflection of one’s life becomes the prominent thought in their moments before death.
Just like Victor creating the monster and the conflict they had with one another, it’s a problem we will try time and time again to find out but it’s something that was never intended to be found out. Once the monster was created the man had no idea what to do with it or how to handle the situation. God knew what he was doing and that’s why it’s his power and for no one else to lay their hands on, Victor found out the hard way. Running away is never going to solve a problem if anything it will cause more. Victor’s action to run away caused William’s death and made Justine look like the killer when the evidence was planted from the blood.
