The play ‘All my Sons” by Arthur Miller focuses on the themes of loss, guilt and the past revealing itself in the present.

Brothers Notes Brothers” by Carol Ann Duffy reveals many serious themes including mortality and memory. The poem seems to suggest that once a certain age is reached, there is nothing to do but wait for one’s own passing. The brevity of the poem indicates that life with these four brothers was short. The first stanza indicates that when the narrator does in fact converse with her brothers (from the last line the readers learn that she rarely does talk to them) it is about the past. In fact, she does not even refer to them as brothers in the present: she stares at “these four men.” They are men rather than brothers.
No matter how much the characters discuss about love, the meaning of love remains unanswered. MEANING OF THE TITLE! Mel tries many times to approach the meaning of love, but he doesn’t succeed to understand it. He discusses about the old couple to his friends who were almost killed in an accident and that the old man was depressed that he was not able to his wife because they were in two separate rooms trying to proof his point to others whether that was love. Terri explains that Ed really loved her even when he was abusive, while Mel disagrees with her.
How does Martin portray the character of Manon and her attitudes up until the time of her Mother’s death? In the opening pages, Manon repeatedly refers to her husband as “him”, which is shown in the 3rd person pronoun which gives the impression that he has no respect and she has no respect for him, therefore he has not been given a name. This shows that Manon has a negative attitude towards her husband as she believes he does not deserve a name as he is unworthy due to the treatment he has given Manon. As a result, this leads people to believe that there is no love between Manon and her husband because if he was given a name it would show a loving connection. Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband.
We are then shown that Hamlet's insanity frightens Ophelia away. In Act II, scene 1, Ophelia reports to her father about the recent encounter she has had with Hamlet. She says he looked as though he had been "loosed out of hell to speak of horrors" and that she "truly did fear it”. We are later shown demonstrations of her feelings In Act III, scene 1 as she returns remembrances of his, for "their perfume [has been] lost". This could mean that the importance of his letters to her have perished and that she longer has any desire to hold onto them.
The wife is desperate and inconsolable, she cannot stop grieving, and this distances her from her husband, who is seemingly more stable. Underneath this structure, the emotional action unfolds, which reveals the author’s message. Poem Analysis The structure of the poem is designed in the form of a dramatic dialogue with scarce author’s commentaries. This dialogue performs several functions: firstly, it sketches the plot, giving a flashback into the past; secondly, it draws a picture of the relationship between the husband and the wife. It also unveils the essence of their feelings and emotions related to the loss of their child and how this tragedy affected their life.
(Schoenberg, 2011, paragraph 17) In my marriage, I cannot relate to this article at all, because all of my marriage problems are related to his family members, and them not liking me. I try to talk to him about it and he just keeps telling me to let it go it is not worth it; but, to me it is more than worth it. I have always tried to get people to like me, but it seems like I
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, in her book, On Death and Dying described five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Our protagonist refrains from bargaining, but takes one further step in his process—action! Denial crops up immediately as the narrator considers the fate of his missing wife. With death all around him, especially for those involved in the liberation front, the narrator refuses to stop looking for her or asking about her, even though he fears finding out the truth. “Not to know where she is, what they have done to her is a torment (17).” He notices that the women who care for his house and children do not refer to her, and he realizes they believe she won’t come back.
Many of her actions reflects the theme of the past haunting the present. For example, whenever Tecumseh asks Aunt Cassie about her past and if she has been married before, she never gives a clear answer, and this is a reoccurring scene. Aunt Cassie's history of relationships is unknown to Tecumseh, and whenever Tecumseh asks about it, she answers "'They do that all the time' 'who' 'men' 'do what' 'disappear,’ says aunt Cassie". This shows that she might have been hurt by her past relationships with men, and is affected by it to this day, which is why she is reluctant to give a clear answer about her marriage even to this day. Disappearing and reappearing is a major topic in the novel "truth and Bright Water", and this not only happens
