Carter, himself had to suffer the fate of watching all his friends and associates drop off like flies, even his pet was killed by a cobra in a freak incident.
The song was written in 1974 and he was diagnosed in 1987. In hindsight, the lyrics are frighteningly fitting to the way in which he died. The lyrics “too late, my time has come/body’s aching all the time; gotta leave you all behind and face the truth”. Some think that the song was written about a boy who committed a murder and dealing with the inner conflict of killing a man. My interpretation of the song was that when he sang “too late, my time has come, body’s aching all the time”, he was telling us how much his body physically ached from being sick.

This first life changing jilting made granny Weatherall form trust issues. On her death bed she alleged to the doctor, “I do. I want a lot of things. First off, go away and don’t whisper” (Abcarian, 1169) Granny said this because she thought that Cornelia and Dr.Harry were talking about her behind her back.

Many had lost their bootsof the b again in the sixth of the d But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; In the second stanza he describes us a specific episode, the dead by gas, using another experimental tool, the direct speech, to add phatos. -Gas! Gas!
Equiano appeals to the reader’s emotions when stating the “necessary tubs, into which the children fell and were almost suffocated.” There are “several brothers who were sold who in the sale were sold in different lots; and it was very moving on this occasion to see and hear their cries at parting.” He discusses his bittersweet happiness after his kidnapping when he is saddened to be taken from his family, yet happy to have new experiences and learn about Christianity. It is logical to conclude that these experiences were terrible and horrifying for Africans who were part of the slave
Victor is “disturbed by the wildest dreams” and sights Elizabeth. “as I imprinted the first kiss on her lips, they became livid with the hue if death”. This builds the atmosphere and develops the contrast between life and death. It also gives a sense of imagery. This shows that from the moment he had tried to bestow life into the dead, he accomplished the total opposite; he causes the living to die.
From Ophelia’s first scene its clear there is a level of affection and connection between the two protagonists. While his father was alive, Hamlet ‘hath of late made many tenders of his affection’ towards Ophelia in the form of love letters and gifts. Despite Ophelia never really being able to reveal her true feelings due to the high level of male control that dictates her every move, it’s obvious that she is deeply in love with Hamlet, shown in her heartbreak and despair after Hamlet’s treatment of her in Act 3, Scene 1. Their relationship seems onset to become a royal wedding until the Ghost. The Ghost of Hamlet’s father sets the revenge plot into motion, pushing the blooming romance aside to a subplot.

In the third stanza the speaker addressed the child of the dead solider telling him/her not to cry for “[war] is kind,” but instead of trying to comfort him/her, Stephen Crane, illustrates the last moment of the soldiers where he “tumbled in yellow trenches, [raging] at his breast, [gulping] and [dying]”(8). In the fifth stanza, the clever use of the term "bright splendid" also draws out the suggestion of the blood with the corpse will now be covered in (13). The image of a mother weeping over the body of her fallen son is also the most heart-wrenching of all the individuals addressed, due to the fact it emphasizes the hopelessness of victims, both living and dead. Through Stephen Crane’s use of imagery, the reality of war is highlighted to the readers. In addition to imagery, Stephen Crane also uses diction to develop the ironic tone of the poem.
