Of course not because it is impossible. All one can actually do is guess what happens. Most people are scared to death about death. Indeed, the subject is a very morbid topic to talk about of. However, Mark Twain chose to make fun of the subject; “The fear of death follows from the fear of life.
Watt explores this fear by investigating into different methods of the apprehension itself. In the film, Meryl lives in absolute fear, no matter the situation, or the area that she is in, the fear overcomes her, and this creates the inability that she has to live her life to it’s fullest. Meryl creates imagery in her mind of the worst possible outcomes of everyday occurrences, such as walking, or catching public transport. Nick on the other hand, discovers that he may have to face his fear head on when he finds out that he has testicular cancer. In one way, Nick is told that he has a limited time span of life, and this creates the fear within him, but on the other hand, Nick expands that fear into something that will surmount him, and stop him in his tracks of living a successful life.

The old woman at the hotel desperately wanted him to postpone his journey. This was the first warning to both Jonathan and the readers that there were horrible events to come. Later, Jonathan also mentions the people at Bistritz and says, “…the crowd round the inn door, which had by this time swelled to a considerable size, all made the sign of the cross and pointed two fingers at me” (6). The crowd evidently sensed something evil connected with Jonathan. This revealed that something bad would happen in later chapters.
For example he personifies death, which accentuates the sense of fear in the writing and adds potency. In the quote ‘the night-mare LIFE-IN-DEATH was she’ he uses personification by portraying death as a woman. This is alarming because death is a lifeless and dark thing so conveying it as a person is considerably unexpected. For most people death is an immensely unnerving and painful subject but it is inexperiencable to any living being. So being faced with it as a living, breathing person is powerfully frightening.

In the novel Triage written by Scott Anderson, both Ahmet Talzani and Joaquin Morales seem to embody a fatalistic view of life, one in which reasons have to be created. Triage is ultimately a novel where there is a lack of hope. After Marks incident in Kurdistan we are instantly made to feel like the worst is yet to come with the use of strong and colourful language. Hope is distinguished when the whereabouts of Colin is unknown, and throughout Marks recovery there are constantly reminders that Mark will most likely never recover. Anderson shows that war has a damning effect on war journalists as well as soldiers, and that their loved ones and families are also heavily affected.
Your husband had an affair with the maid!’ After that, the woman became my sworn enemy.
