Death Paragraph quotes: “Writhed” gives the reader the image that she is helplessly struggling like a small animal and compares her to the mouse and dog that Lennie has killed. “Curley came suddenly to life” are the words Steinbeck uses to depict when Curley realizes who has killed his wife. This makes us feel sorry for Curley’s Wife because it suggests that her husband is more excited that he will be able to take his revenge on Lennie than he is upset that his wife is dead. The fact that even her own husband does not show that he misses her to any significance also make us feel sympathetic towards Curely’s Wife because we realize that she will also not be missed by any of the other characters in the book. Never achieving her dreams paragraph quotes: Steinbeck inevitably brings out the reader’s sympathy towards Curley’s Wife when she dies in the book.
320) This is verbal irony because it shows that whatshe is saying is basically telling the grocer what she used for the murder of her husband. The irony here is amusing, knowing the fact that killed the supposed love of her life and can so easily lie about it. So again, the verbal irony really catches the toneof the dark comedy that Dahl is trying to capture here. Both dramatic and verbal ironyrelate to each other in the sense that the audience feels the ideas of a tragedy assomething funny therefore, relating back to the overall picture of the piece of literate asa dark
During the meeting of the Ladies Missionary Circle, Miss Merriweather was criticizing Atticus at his own house eating his food.

Miss Maudie also helps Scout and Jem put their father more into perspective. After the mad dog incident,which was when a dog named Tim was not alright and Atticus shoots him, Jem is astonished at his father’s shooting abilities because at first, he thought his father couldn’t do anything. Miss Maudie tells them, “Atticus Finch was the deadest shot in
Given this information prior to her attempt to ease his pain, Alcott shows her sheer pity for the "poor lad". "I bathed his face, brushed his bonny brown hair, set all things smooth about him." This quote shows how much effort she put into even the slightest difference in his comfort, in hopes of inflicting a satisfied expression on a dying face. She "stirred the air about him with a slow wave of air and waited for him to die". She stood by him until his breath helping him bear the agony of his inevitable and anticipated death.
A Comparison – “Guilt” and “This Day in History” "To have guilt you've got to earn guilt, but sometimes when you earn it, you don't feel the guilt you ought to have" (James Dickey). This quote is a perfect representation of the two poems that use guilt as their main theme, "Guilt" by Leona Gom and "This Day in History" by Bert Almon, due to its ability to explain the fact that we as humans constantly commit certain actions with a result of a different reaction then we usually expect. Although the two poems differ in their titles and the types of guilt they express, the two poems are similar in a way that they both explain the ways that we as individuals selfishly tend to view our needs, actions, and lives take more importance over those of others.
Their attitudes cause the women to pair up together. Not only do Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters bond, but they choose to hide evidence as an act of compassion for Mrs. Wright. Acquiring the container with the dead bird was an act of loyalty to their gender. The play ends with the characters leaving the kitchen and the women announcing that they have determined Mrs. Wright’s quilt making style. She “knots it” instead of “quilts it” – a play with words that indicate the way she killed her husband (148).
Commentary on Queen Extract - Act 4 Scene 7 This short extract from Act 4 Scene 7 of the play gives a deep visual description of the death of Ophelia as described by the Queen. The description is vital to the closure of the scene because it sets a melancholic tone inciting deep sadness into Laertes and bringing the audience to sympathize with him on two levels: that of a brother who has tragically lost his sister and that of a son who has lost his father to a gruesome murder. For this reason the audience is able to discern Laertes’ role as a parallel avenger to Fortinbras as well as being able to see the marked difference between Laertes’ approach to revenge and that of Hamlet’s approach. The way by which the Queen delivers the tragic news is also important to note, it seems that the description has been embellished and romanticized in order for the Queen to acquit herself from any blame which could possibly be placed on her for Ophelia’s death. As with many of the play’s characters the Queen uses her embellished and romanticized language to achieve a level of ambiguity surrounding Ophelia’s death leading the audience to ask many questions which go unanswered.
He tries to appeal to the readers’ emotion whenever he can. He uses information that appeals to himself and other readers as opposed to Bruck’s essay. In contrast, in “No Death Penalty” written by Bruck, it seems that the majority of the essay was just quotes and cold hard facts that Bruck found before writing. He quotes Koch several times and tries to convince the reader that Koch’s information is incorrect. Overall, I am more convinced by Koch’s essay than Bruck’s essay just because it appeals to me on a more emotional level, and causes me to want to keep the death penalty.
