Here, we realize that Charlie had “gotten bad again;” He had lost all of his friends, he had no one to comfort him, and he was beginning to think that the dream he had about his Aunt Helen was an actual memory. Charlie stops his letter, and doesn’t write again until two months later, when he is released from the hospital. In his last letter, it is revealed that his Aunt Helen had molested him repeatedly. He tries not to focus on this too much, and uses his last letter to emphasize his friends and family being there to help him in his recovery. By the end of the story, Charlie realizes something beautiful: “Even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there (Chbosky 211).” Charlie stays true to his words, and decides to stop writing letters so he could participate more in life.

He has to wait in the College Sick Bay, where he is later picked up by his neighbours; and he is unaware of the death, all he knows is that there has been an accident.
Gatsby is crushed by her actions, but fails to realize the true extent of them. He continues to pester her with hopes of rekindling a relationship that ended years ago, but she refuses, and immediately moves away with Tom. This action drives Gatsby mad, and his utter devotion for Daisy is the last thought on his mind when Wilson kills him. Sara Teasdale, a poet in the 1900s, is scared of this kind of commitment; she knows that love for another will only bring about her own demise. Faced with depression and an illness that leaves her bed-ridden for much of her life, she is heavily dependent on others to survive.

Her sister held Louise when “she wept at once, with sudden, wild abandonment…” (4). This leads the reader to not knowing whether it is out of grief or if it is a cry of relief. 7. Two important quotes from the story are: “There would be no one to live for during those coming years; she would live for herself.” (14) This quote explains the sadness she feels for the loss of her husband, but the realization that after years of confinement in her marriage, she will finally have a chance at a life. “When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease—of joy that kills.” (23) This quote speaks to the irony of how fleeting life is.

Ben Jonson is showing the heartache from his son’s early death at the age of seven.

Steinbeck’s personal life affects the themes of his writing significantly. In 1934 and 1935 Steinbeck lost both his mother and father, which made him view the world in a much darker outlook. Then in 1937, Of Mice and Men was published which revealed his negative outlook by ultimately having George kill Lennie in the end, proving that the loneliness would overwhelm George much like the loneliness that Steinbeck was dealing with in his personal life. In 1945 an unhappy Steinbeck, who supposedly had everything he could have ever wanted, moved out of his dream house in Monterey and never returned there again. That same year Cannery Row was published which also portrays a feeling of loneliness through Doc.
