With this knowledge, the audience is more likely to relate with Mrs. Wright from Trifles, even though she did murder her husband. Though all three pieces of literature deal with death, Trifles and ―The Story of an Hour‖ are the ones that deal with the perspective of the wives. Both the wives are similar in the way that they feel trapped by th... ... middle of paper ... ... to a realization that they have a choice of how they can live.

Brack was the lost love of Hedda, who feels responsible for her death. Unnatural death is without a doubt the motif that fuels these texts. Unnatural death is apparent with the deaths of Emma Bovary in Madame Bovary, and the deaths of Ejlert Lovborg and Hedda Gabler in Hedda Gabler. The use of unnatural death by Henrik Ibsen and Gustave Flaubert allows the Authors to breakdown the main characters and reveal their true personalities. “You've got to be mighty reserved and respectful about a suicide... A suicide's a kind of lean stuff for literature...” - Mark Twain (quote on suicide in literature).
From the beginning, it is made clear that there is more than one tie linking the deteriorating mental and physical condition of the inhabitants to the slow decay of its foundations. During his stay at the house of Usher, the narrator finds himself unable to draw his friend out of the abyss of misery in which he has enshrouded himself, both figuratively and literally. Admitting to his sister's approaching death being one of... ... middle of paper ... ... Fall of the House of Usher.” Throughout the tale, one sees clearly the binding ties between house and inhabitants. What was once a proud family mansion is reduced to a crumbling house, whose inhabitants are scarcely less changed. From the wasting disease of the lady Madeline, to her brother's nervous affliction, one discerns a tangible connection with their dark family home.
Due to Edgar Allan Poe’s loss of those he cared for throughout his life, Poe’s obsession with death is evident in his works of “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Black Cat”, and “The Fall of the House of Usher”, in which in all three death is used to produce guilt. At the end of “The Tell-Tale Heart”, Poe’s fascination with death is apparent when the narrator ruthlessly killed an old man with a disturbing eye, but felt so guilty that he confessed to the police. The narrator dismembered the old man’s body and hid them in the floor, confident that they were concealed. However, when the police came to investigate, the narrator heard a heart beating and began to crack under the pressure. Overcome with guilt, he confessed that he murdered him and pulled up the floorboards.

“The pathologist that authorised the release of Petar’s body to be flown home to Britain said that the cause of death was a drugs overdose.”,(Bindel, Julie). Even though Julie Bindel’s son wasn’t a drug addict he got drugged and overtaken by people who wanted to take his organs. Even a wealthy person like Jacob lost his life to organ harvesting.

On the other hand, they are presented to us very differently, making one story very formulaic, and making the other very untypical of the murder mystery genre. Both Conan-Doyle and Dahl use various techniques to make their stories more interesting; for example, in Dahl's "Lamb to the Slaughter" the story revolves around the character of Mrs Mary Maloney, loving housewife and psychopathic killer. Normally, many stories concentrate on the detective or the victim, this story concentrates on the character of the murderer. This perspective helps with the telling of the murder, making it more unexpected. The story includes two major plot twists; the first being the murder itself, made unexpected by what we have seen of Mary Maloney's character, the second plot twist is at the end, where the detectives eat the murder weapon.
Others find it horrifying as they would be terrified of being buried alive and in those days it was quite common for medical students to dig up the corpses. This also ties in with Bierce’s definition of a grave, which I also found in ‘The Devil’s Dictionary.’ A grave is a place in which the dead are laid to await the coming of the medical student.’ Reading these stories of Bierce’s I found to be very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed. I think it is clear that Bierce was trying to scare a lot of people and effectively did as the description, the language used, the mixed feelings it sends out and the context of his writing creates a lot of horror and suspense. Some may say that Bierce is sick others say that he is very intelligent. Bierce- brilliant or disturbed?
