Capulet was overheard to say: ‘hang thee young baggage disobedient wretch’ ‘O heavens! O wife, look how our daughter bleeds!’ (Act Three, Scene Five, Line 165) This dagger hath mistaken, for, lo, his house Is empty, on the back of Montague, And it mis-sheathed in my daughter’s bosom!’ (Act Five, Scene Five, Line 208) When Capulet heard about his daughter’s death he believes that Romeo was the one
Finally, the last stanza substantiates Cherry’s claim about the man being crazy for he does not recognize his wife in the door welcoming him. The term crazy in the poem points to the man not being in his right state of mind. The crazy old man came back from the hospital to a place that he remembers as home. Matter of fact, he sees things in place known as home as he remembers. Cherry takes the time to point out roses and columbine fighting for space, the sun on cue performing the task that is the norm around his house, and rosebushes (Cherry 968).
The fall of the House of Usher is about a man, Roderick Usher, who lives with his sister in an old family mansion. Both the brother and sister are both withering away as time passes. Roderick feels the need to talk to his old childhood friend, Poe (who is also the narrator), before he passes. Roderick wrote to the narrator of “a mental disorder which oppressed him” (Poe 150). This gives a first impression of the schizophrenia which was mentioned.
Within that setting, the film tells the story of Conrad's attempts to deal with the guilt he feels after his brother's death. A series of psychotherapy sessions with Dr. Berger (Judd Hirsch) plays a crucial role. Seeing Dr. Berger also helps Calvin understand some things, and when in a midnight confrontation he tells Beth of his sorrow that she has substantially changed for the worse, she packs her bags and leaves. The film ends early the next morning, with Conrad and his father in an emotional embrace on the front steps of their home. The movie ‘Ordinary People’, as its name implies, basically deals with average people who are actually very common in real world as their problems are.

His hopes of marriage and building a loving new home were crushed after Lydia’s tragic betrayal, when Romulus’s vulnerability to his inner demons was revealed. Raimond describes his father’s condition as “personal disintegration” by which Romulus’s moral world collapsed in the face of what he saw as an incomprehensible situation. He was simply unable to believe that Lydia could present such dishonesty. During his stay in hospital and throughout his continuing illness at Frogmore, the superstitions and hallucinations of evil spirits ruled his life for a time. This life-altering episode aggravated his mental disorder and left him, “unable to whistle or sing with his former innocence and delight in life”.
(Alchin) Shakespeare published no elegies and left no result of his paternal feelings. Parents in Shakespeare’s time could not devote too much love and hope in a child due to the plague. Death was a familiar event to Shakespeare. In the four years following Hamnet’s death, Shakespeare wrote some of his finest comedies: The Merry Wives of Windsor, Much Ado About Nothing, and As You Like It. If there is no link between the works and the death of Hamnet, there is, at the very least, no reason to think that Shakespeare simply buried his son and moved on unscathed.

In chapter twenty nine, he tells Nelly that he had Catherine dug up the day before so he could have one more look at her. Nelly tells him he should be ashamed for disturbing the dead, and he replies “Disturbed her? No!
