The audiences for these narratives at the time were abolitionists, with the purpose of calling them to action to abolish slavery. Even now, with slavery abolished, a slave narrative still brings with it intense emotion and heartache that transcends time. For example, Douglass establishes pathos on the first few pages when describing how he only saw his own mother "four or five times in my life" (Douglass 2). This appeals to everyone who ever had a mother. This also makes the reader ache for happiness of this poor boy almost immediately.

Therefor, she kept quiet and even made efforts to keep the suitors distracted. The first moment where Penelope suspects Odysseus will be coming home is in Book XVII. On the return of Telemakhos, who is now tougher and braver than ever, she is told that Odysseus is alive and will be home any day.

Emily instantly fell in love. She even bought him a silver toilet set with his initials on it to almost buy his love, but as time passed they had still not married. Once Emily found out that Homer was not the marrying type, she went out and killed him so he would always belong to her, “The body had apparently once lain in the attitude of an embrace, but now the long sleep that outlasts love, that conquers even the grimace of love, had cuckolded him” (Faulkner) as the narrator states. Emily had acted irrationally in order to keep what she had always desired. On the other hand, in The Jilting of Granny Weatherall by, Porter, Granny Weatherall had also been rejected by her lover, George.
He says, “Th’exchange of thy loves faithful vow for me.” (act 2 scene 2 line 127) When he says ‘Th’exchange of thy loves faithful vow’, he is referring to exchanging wedding vows, getting married. He was too hasty in wanting to get married and rushed into it without thinking it through. He should have waited until she was older, and they could have been better off, and it would have been easier. Also, when Juliet is ‘dead’, Romeo notices that she has colour in her cheeks and that she has red lips, as if the were living. He says, “death that hath sucked the honey of thy breath, hath no power yet upon thy beauty.’ (act 5 scene 3 lines 92-93) And ‘why art though yet so fair?’ (line 102) he means that even though she is dead, she is still beautiful and he even looks at her again and asks why she looks so good.

Nobody tells Romeo that it’s just a potion and Juliet’s not really died, he buys poison and goes to Juliet’s tomb.
Initially, Ryan and his group were kept out of the camp, where it was learned that its members were practicing for religious songs and dances. This trip ignited Jones’ own fear of a government conspiracy that was out to get him, later that night; the Ryan delegation attended a reception in the pavilion. While the party received a friendly reception, Jones said he felt like a dying man and ranted about government conspiracies and martyrdom as he decried attacks by the press and his enemies. Two Peoples Temple members, Vernon Gosney and Monica Bagby, made the first move for defection that night. In the pavilion, Gosney passed a note to Don Harris (mistaking him for Ryan), reading "Dear Congressman, Vernon Gosney and Monica Bagby.
