This experience shocked Browning but also taught him to avoid this kind of death. Firstly, Browning uses juxtaposition in “Apparent Failure” to amplify the differences in quality of life. This is shown by “So killed themselves: and now, enthroned Each on his copper couch, they lay”. As we see in the quotation, life is brusquely handled, whilst in death their position is raised as they are “enthroned”. The added use of “they” ultimately shows the loss or lack of identity held by these men in life or death.
However, the writer mostly depicts technology as destructive because people are dependent on it and take it for granted. But in some stories Bradbury shows good sides of technology. In "The Long Rain" writes about how people can find relief in technology from an unforgiving natural force; in "The Fox and the Forest" people are looking for way out of difficult situations in technology. In short story "The Long Rain" a group of astronauts are stranded on Venus, where it rains continually and heavily. In really horrible conditions on Venus the travelers are trying to make their way across the Venusian landscape to find a "sun dome", a shelter with a large artificial light source.

The second stanza shows that the past years were not significant, or not worth remembering, ‘not memorable’, indicating the speaker’s empty attitude to his past life. These feelings are metaphorically shown in ‘empty quays’, which also represents the social changes brought about by war. As in ‘Aspens’, where the once noisy smithy is silenced and ‘As the Team’s Head Brass,’ where the ploughman tells of his mate’s death and the ‘many lost’, to war, so the once-busy quays have been emptied of men. The unceasing movement of time from present to past is represented by the water metaphor, ‘rivers flow’. The poem moves from the past to the present, ‘now again’ and another characteristic motif, water, appears.
Arthur speaks in disappointment and despair, he is dying and his knights will not fulfill his last request. When Sir Bedivere finally completes his master's wishes Arthur is able to leave and rest in peace and Sir Bedivere stays to guard his grave in loyalty. The important message conveyed by the somber tone and the betrayal of Sir Bedivere is the theme of the importance of loyalty. The story has a dark tone because King Arthur is being betrayed. In The Once and Future King the tone is not somber but hopeful.
In Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and “The Fall of House of Usher,” Poe wrote constantly of the motifs of the heart, as well as that of madness and insanity. These two works feature elements of lost love and the pain one can feel as a result of a traumatic loss. In the powerful poem “The Raven,” the story tells of a distraught lover; the reader follows the man’s decent into a world of madness.

Since he had so many deaths in his life he wrote this poem to express how he sees death taking over locations that were once spectacular and are now in grieve and the absence of the liveliness. This poem shows an image of how death rises and becomes a higher power and taking away the light. The outcome of all the pain and horror that follows in deaths footprints in a city isolated by water is seen as a putrid
The narrator viewed the shrouded bodies in their solemn slumbers with the worms. The significance is he saw a vast number changed to an uneasy position in which they had originally been entombed. 7.
