How to Watch Your Brother Die In the poem, “How to Watch Your Brother Die”, Michael Lassell used first person in the story that was beneath the poem. In this poem, the narrator got a call about his brother’s death, so he left his wife to go arrange his brother’s funeral and be there for the condolences. He was very calm with it and did every step quietly without any drama added. When he arrived, he knew that his brother had a boyfriend. At first, some situations were awkward between the straight type narrator and the gay lover.
Figuratively, the author is laying out the foundation of his poem with two different instances, his foe and his friend. In my opinion, I see the author explaining that out of the two individuals the friend would be forgiven for what he or she had done and his wrath would be ended. In that sentence the author informs the reader of a common human fact, that if you have a friend then there is no need to relish over it, rather move on. The foe, on the other hand, will not be so lucky. The author explains when he was angry he told his anger not, which resulted in it to be feed negativity.
Since the poem depicts both grief as well as love, the words of the poem produce the tone. The author incorporates words such as “decays” when speaking of love (3). The author also represents the speaker’s love as a “plague” when relating it to their broken heart (6). The speaker in the poem seems to mourn their lost love and their broken heart. Their morose and depressed attitude becomes apparent when they say, “I brought a heart into the room, but from the room I carried none with me” (19-20).
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” The Message “This is how much God loved the world:
Lemme be” (Faulkner, 25). The wound he receives may also be a sense of the loyalty he has for his father. On page 25 of the reading packet, Faulkner has Sarty’s mother go to clean off his wound and then stop. Everyone leaves it alone. In a way, Sarty is showing his battle scars as if he had defended the family.
Throughout the collection of war poems by Wilfred Owen, all the poems share the same subject; “the pity of war”. Therefore unpleasant details and exaggerated emotions play a big part from a war poet who was serving for his country in World War One. W.B. Yeats dismissed Owen’s poetry as ‘all blood’ and ‘dirt’ you could argue that Owen is a little obsessed with it but with no hope and constant death surrounding him on the Western Front who can blame him for feeling this way? The war poem collection could also be considered to face other aspects of war not necessarily the graphic events, but the hatred of civilians, justified details and distractions from war such as coping mechanisms.

“We paused over a snapshot of Ted Lavender, and after a while Jimmy rubbed his eyes and said he’d never forgiven himself for Lavender’s death. It was something that would never go away, he said quietly” (27). Cross believes that because he was so obsessed with his fantasy of Martha and the life they might lead after the war, he was negligent. Therefore, Cross sees Lavender’s death as the result of his negligence. His confession to O’Brien, years later, testifies to his intense feeling of guilt about the incident.
The poem is in form of narration done by the author describing the kind of relationship she had with her father before his death. After her father’s death, she almost killed herself, but as she says, “they pulled me out of the sack, and they stuck me together with glue”. In order to keep the memories of her father, she moved in with “A man in black with a Mein kampf look”to have a father figure in the house. However, her husband betrays her and as a result, she is forced to hate all men and in fact kill them. Similarly, the short story is discussing death as Addie Bundren is very ill and instead of her children fearing for her death, Cash, her oldest son, has dedicated all his carpentry skills in making a coffin.
Session 1: My first session with Hamlet was a troubling one; he came to me with many concerns. Just two months ago, his father died. Now, his mother, Gertrude, is remarrying to his uncle, Claudius. When asked how he feels about the marriage of his mother and uncle, and how he is dealing with the grief from the loss of his father, Hamlet responded with, “Not so… I am i’ the sun.” (1.2.71) His sarcastic remark denotes feelings of betrayal by his mother and uncle who are so readily able to replace his father. This remark also implies that that he is still mourning the loss of his father and is not yet ready to move on.
