A return ticket to London was found in her pocket suggests that it was a tragic accident. A notebook in her bag revealing that she had lots, and I mean lots, of appointments to go to suggesting that it was a tragic accident. Emily had been seen practising stopping horses. These all suggest it was a tragic accident for reasons such as why would you waste money on a ticket you wouldn’t use but the main thing I feel suggests it was a tragic accident is of the case that she had been seen practicing to stop
Undoubtedly, the plague causes the disintegration of families in the town. By structuring her novel as a retrospective narrative that is our protagonist, Anna Frith describes of what had happened in the book, enables the audience to adopt the sense of doom and horrors occurred during the time of the catastrophe. We are exposed to pain and grief that Anna feels when she lost her children whom she ‘loved from the moment she first reached down and touched the crowd’ of her children because of the plague, which results in her ‘(fighting) the sexton when he came to take Jamie’s body away’. Brooks clearly demonstrates and explores that the crisis such this plague can destroy

1. Unstable Situation: In the beginning of the story we get informed that there is a murderer out on loose who calls himself The Misfit. The story is told that he is running towards Florida and the family happens to take vacation there. Of the course the Grandmother insist not follow up on Florida and instead tend to Tennessee 2. Exposition: Character- (a) The Grandmother (Dynamic)- The Grandmother is a lady who lives with her only son Bailey and his family.
It was in fact her own reinforcement that prompted the family to stray from the main path in search of some false Misfit. There were hints to the reader at the beginning of the story, that while on their vacation to Florida the family is destined to cross lost treasure. This decision was a deadly one. It caused the family to fall into the path of the Misfit. For example, “There is an inmate fellow that escaped from Federal Pen and headed toward Florida.
Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, a story about a southern family and their conflict they are faced with while driving down south to Florida. Morals are challenged face to face at its finest in this short story when two very different groups of people happen to cross paths resulting in a tragedy. The grandmother in the story consistently uses the word “good” many times throughout the story, specifically when she tells Red Sammy he is a good man and of course the Misfits also. The word good was used for the wrong meaning by the grandmother; Her judgment was poor and unwise which ended up costing her family and herself their lives. People are all different in their own ways, not everyone has the same perspectives on life and moral
How does Jean Rhys create a sense of foreboding in Part One of Wide Sargasso Sea? Throughout the novel Rhys foreshadows Antoinette’s eventual decision to kill herself by creating a sense of unease and discomfort which climaxes in her suicide. One of the first instances that a sense of foreboding is suggested early in part one when Antoinette who narrates this section tells us how Mr Luttrell becomes so depressed and disillusioned with the state of affairs in post-colonial Jamaica he kills his dog and himself. Possibly due to the innocent tone that Rhys creates through Antoinette’s narrative, the actual suicide is rather understated. We are not explicitly told that Mr Luttrell, a character who represents the last social connection the family have, actually ends his life but instead it is strongly implied by the simplified and to an extent childlike way in which Antoinette says that ‘he swam out to sea and was gone for always’.
There are several examples of her deceitful and untrustworthy actions. In the beginning of the story, “The grandmother didn’t want to go to Florida” (O’ Connor 9), so she made up false excuses to try to persuade her family to take her to Tennessee. On the way to Florida, she lied to the children about the secret panel by telling them, “‘There was a secret panel in this house not telling the truth but wishing that she were” (O’ Connor 16,17) so she can get what she wants and visit the old plantation. She also chooses not to reveal that she made a mistake about the location of the house. In addition, the grandmother talks about Jesus with The Misfit when she hopes that it might help save her life.
I fell to the floor sobbing knowing my life would never be the same. That’s what happened that horrible night in October after receiving a phone call from my step-aunt saying my grandfather had just passed away. I knew my life was going to change significantly. I started to rebel, it tore my family apart, and everyone looked for signs that he was still with us somewhere, somehow. Death of a loved one has a negative impact on everyone who loved that person.
