Mrs. Ratched to a near death state. His anger drove him to physical action and therefore was punished by being lobotomized. If McMurphy had better control over his emotions, he wouldn’t have been lobotomized and wouldn’t have fallen. Even though he was alive, his friend, the “Chief”, did not want to see him in the state that he was in and decided to euthanize him.
Fear and anguish brought out some of the worst qualities in the villagers causing them to turn against one another creating anger, conflict and damage unto one another. In turn these actions fueled by superstition, hysteria and ignorance could become just as fatal as the plague itself.

Brooks structures her novel as a non-linear timeline as it jumps backwards and forwards starting after the events of the plague giving hints of what has caused the change in the community. Undoubtedly, the plague causes the disintegration of families in the town.
Frankenstein Personal Response Why Victor Frankenstein is Responsible for his Death When one initially reads the gothic tale Frankenstein, it may seem obvious that Victor’s monster was directly responsible for the death of Victor’s loved ones. At the hands of his very own grotesque creation, Victor lost his younger brother, his friends and his newlywed wife, Elizabeth. However, upon reflection on the actions of Victor Frankenstein, I concluded that Victor himself is indisputably responsible for the deaths of the people closest to him. I found these three very distinct reasons that support my thoughts: he created the monster, he rejected and abandoned it, and he refused to make a companion for the monster in the midst of his loneliness. As a result of Victor’s pursuit of scientific knowledge and the desire to infuse life, he created a very grotesque creature that murdered his loved ones.

O’Brien and Thomas both depict situations where the concept of death is always lurking just around the corner.
This is shown through some of the key characters in the film: Meryl, Nick and Julia. Meryl provides an excellent example of someone who has been traumatised by her experiences with death, especially in her family. Her father’s death left her floundering and disorientated, such that her own view of life and death became distorted and fatalistic, making trite comments such as “maybe it was meant to be”. Combined with the impact of watching a man get run over by a train in front of her, her mental health has severely been damaged, made evident by the flashes of paintings that signify her imagination, filled with morbid scenes of her own death played out in countless different scenarios. She
Another important thing in horror movies is that the villain has to die at the end of the movie, and even though a lot of people die, the end has to somehow be more or less a happy ending. The villain is not the only one who has to die in horror movies. An important character that is dear to the audience and the main character, has to die to create some sort of “realistic sense” in the movie, since it is not realistic that only bad people die. In movies the genre drama has to have a main character that deals with some sort of realistic, emotional problem, which is dealt with through the entire movie. It is very important to have a big realistic essence in a movie to accomplish making a drama film.

This poem states how people pity when something small like a mouse dies, “When a mouse dies, there was sort of pity”. When something like a whale dies, it builds excitement and people would be interested and wanting to find out more and crowd around (“Yesterday, instead, the dead whale on the reef Drew an excited multitude to the jetty”). But when a child dies, everyone cries and feels sad and sorry for the child, “Sorry, we are, too, when a child dies”. Also, when a large number of people die, people do not feel
We blame friends for leaving, but the fact is they don’t even want to leave It’s just that the purpose of their staying in our lives comes to end so they leave circumstantially. We lose friends, we become sad, we gather our courage and then gradually after some time we find new ones. That’s because as we grow up, we have this feeling that may be those people are not meant to be with you, you have different goals than theirs. We cannot seem to understand life in a mature way. So, one should not run and cry for the things that mean to stay for a very little time in our life.
