They both kill themselves through a series of events in the end, both only wanting to be with the other. It is only after both their childs deaths that the families resolve their issues. But what caused their death? It nags at us all after we finish the book. When the two lovers die, we want something to blame so we can have closure on the story; but in fact, just like in life, it’s very hard to pin one cause on this event.
After the execution, the men all share a drink in laughter with the body hanging only a few yards away. In this story the men were brought together by the death of a prisoner. They are used to the fact someone dies everyday by there hand and they go on with their lives.

The Cask of Amontillado and The Tell Tale Heart are both legendary literary masterpieces. Two identical works on the surface, but upon a second read some may notice the subtle differences in the characters and their intentions. Edgar Allan Poe had a knack for writing atmospheric and often unsettling stories and these two work no different. They both emulate the feelings and thought processes of mad man that are willing to do anything that to settle there frustrations. There 's many minor obvious aesthetical differences between both the texts, like how both killers where men or how both killings where done during the night; But the main focus point many readers may not have noticed was the heart.
The author Mark Twain approached the suddenness of death in his story “A Private History of a Campaign that Failed”. Ambrose Bierce also captured the sharp essence of death in his tale of Peyton Farquhar in “An Occurance at Owl Creek Bridge”. Ambrose Bierce displays the theme of “the suddenness of death” with such a clarity even though it does not truly appear until the very last sentence of his short story. His distortion of reality is not realized until readers have fought alongside and cheered for the main protagonist Farquhar. In the first section it is learned that a man is scheduled to be executed, fleeting moments of longing for his wife and children flash through his mind.
Although the ancient Mariner knows he has sinned, Peter Grimes does not and thinks he is in the right, which is where the stories di... ... middle of paper ... ... Ne any drop to drink." So the same sort of writing techniques are used in both poems to presents the themes of isolation, injustice, retribution and the supernatural, which is why on first thought, these poems are awfully similar. However when looked at closely, there are many important differences in the styles that both poets write in to present the themes in their own individual way. Both poems are very successful at using the description and imagery to give the feeling of isolation, retribution, injustice and the supernatural. They both tell stories, but again using different styles.
“It” is referring to death. He was just... ... middle of paper ... ...eath, it ends with happiness. Peter being judged at his own funeral is heartbreaking, but there is a bright side. He can no longer hear their hate. He is already long gone by his funeral.
In O’Brien’s commentary, he alludes to the fact that the truth is often overlooked, and war is not a one toned subject. The truths of war are conflicting, for war can be an experience of both beauty and horror. The exerperiances that one must endure are inarticulate, and often filled with uncountable emotions. Through the use of literary devices such as imagry, paraxoxies, and juxtopositions of themes, O’Brian was able to create an affective short story that further informed readers of the ‘truth’ behind every war story. Thus, lessening the gap between physical war and war stories.
This small lack of emotion also links these two novels together greatly. Different genres, settings, ideas, motives, and themes seem to separate two novels completely, but highly significant small themes bring two different worlds closer than anything. Frankenstein and The Great Gatsby are different in the sense that one is based on pursuit of knowledge, ambitions, and dreams. The other is based on lies and deceit, selfishness, and the shallowness of high social statuses. As different as these two novels may seem, they come together to share themes that unit two worlds of distinct philosophies.
Conversely, there are lot of differences between the two; M.R James chose to have a passive spectre while Susan Hill's story contains a vengeful, dangerous ghost. On the whole, they are two very effective ghost stories that employ several writing techniques to add effectiveness to the plot. Comparative [Social/Cultural/Historical] M. R. James: Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad  Susan Hill: The Woman In Black 
Also in Kesey’s novel, there is a clear distinction between Acutes and Chronics and their condition that was being treated. However in the movie version, the difference was unnoticeable, and made me forget about the distinction in general. The plot that was chosen by Forman seemed to be random scenes put together, and overall, a “cheap” recreation of the plot. Disregarding the details and scenes that were missed, Forman did a very nice job. However, did it capture the essence and importance?
