The last meow thought I would never get over it when our dog Hollie died. My brother Dan and I both cried as Dad buried her under the avocado tree in our backyard, knowing that Hollie was gone from our lives forever. We made Dad bury her very deep so no other animals could come and dig her up. Dad said that Hollie was old (we knew that) and had been sick a long time (we knew that too) and had lived a good life (we knew that too) but my heart was broken anyway. My family also had a few pets before Hollie.

That person or person’s direct family should make the decision to give “the gift of death, after having given him the gift of life” (Ganley) Said the mother of her severely disabled son named Humbert. She had planned on helping him in killing himself on the 3 years after the accident. He couldn’t move except for his left thumb, couldn’t speak or see. Humbert tried to adapt. He wrote a book called “I Ask You For The Right To Die” That wasn’t satisfying enough to him because he still wanted to die.
It centralizes on the loneliness of the poet. The house seems to be dead for the poet which can be said by the very first line of the poem, “The house is so quiet now”. The poet has personified the vacuum with his dead wife; so that he can feel her presence in his life and she could take away his loneliness, grieves and the filth he feels in her absence. Personification has been used throughout the poem, which reflects the thoughts and feelings the poet had for his wife when she was alive. This can be seen in the seventh and eighth line of the poem, “But when my old woman died her soul/ Went into that vacuum cleaner.” So to the poet, the vacuum is his personified wife.
Estranged from her real parents, her moving into our home and experiencing true family love I thought would be my dream come true, but it turned out to be my worse night-mare. For years, I searched for the reasons as to why my friend seemed to victimize me in my own home and from reading Christian author Sandra D. Wilson’s book, I now ponder was it because hurt people, hurt people. Dr. Wilson (2001) expresses in her book that all individuals have experience some type of hurt weather minute or significant. She connotes that deeply scarred and injured individuals, deeply scar and injure others. Dr. Wilson believes that it is a self-protective defense -behavioral mechanism that one who is injured develops.
Candy is lonely because of his old age although it is somewhat helped by the fact he has a dog but as we know, he is left high and dry after the residents of the bunkhouse choose to eradicate it for it was in pain and also smelling. Curleys wife throughout is negatively portrayed to the reader by the workers on the ranch and therefore is not left with anyone on her side, ultimately, making her lonely despite having a husband. The fact that Lennie is so incapable of getting along with people who he doesn’t already know well, this leaves him almost completely reliable on George in the book. Last but not least, Crooks is left without companionship on the ranch for various reasons. In the novel, the ranch is a huge symbolism of loneliness.
Nothing Gold Can Stay The transient nature of life and glory in Nature and in Mankind Sarah Anne Barnes Ashford University ENG 125 Mrs. Sara HINTON Monday, May 6th, 2013 I. “I am going to die”. Almost inevitably, you get a reaction out of this statement, but you shouldn’t, really. It is an unalterable fact that the person reading this, the author and every person connected or not to the story is going to die … sooner or later. Who has never felt the keen sorrow of losing a beloved dog, who shared our moods, accompanied us on our walks, loved us unconditionally and endured our fortunes in bad times as well as good without complaint?
Life of Poe in relation to his works Poe’s life was plagued with unfortunate deaths of beloved relatives, sickness and drinking binges that changed his view on life and has a profound impact on his works from his repetitive yet never tiring themes of love, death and the never ending horrors of loneliness. Not only was his work very depressing, it was also widely accepted that the miserable characters in his works are metaphors of his interpretation of his own life and his many failures in his conquest for happiness. We know from his childhood that his father abandoned his family at a very young age and he once said that women is the source of comfort which provided the care Poe needed as an infant. However, tuberculosis claimed his wife, mother and much of his family’s lives leaving Poe emotionally broken. Many of his work revolved around the death of influential female characters that utilizes symbolism, for instance Annabel Lee which in my opinion is a metaphor of his wife – Virginia and that his poem is trying to resurrect the memories of their lives together as young adults in love and her tragic end and the horrors of death is symbolized as the raven who forcibly takes things from animals.
