In the late 1930s in Goldfield, Nevada at the Goldfield Hotel, George Wingfield Owner impregnated the lovely Elizabeth, who was prostituted around town. Unfortunately, Elizabeth was looking for love, someone who would’ve taken care of her, someone who was rich, and Mr. Wingfield was the right person except he had a wife, he was a successful business person, a political figure in town and how would that make Mr. Wingfield look if people were to find out. Wingfield paid Elizabeth to keep quiet but once he couldn’t any longer he offered her a stay at his hotel in room 109 just while she was pregnant, so he could keep an eye on her. The day Elizabeth gave birth she went missing some say she died in childbirth, some say she was murdered by Wingfield but it was said that
One evening, Queenie Volupides had a quarrel with her husband Arthur and went off to the local country club where a party was ongoing. She departed the club just before one o’clock in the morning with a few friends to have another drink at her place. Queenie however, arrived ten minutes earlier and when her friends arrived, she stated that “Something terrible happened. Arthur slipped and fell on the stairs. He was coming down for another drink - he still had the glass in his hand --- and I think he’s dead. Oh, my God --- what shall I do?” The autopsy conducted later concluded that Arthur died from a wound on the head and confirmed that he’d been drunk.
Loss affects every relationship differently. Sometimes it brings people together, and sometimes it tears people apart. The novel “Past the Shallows”, written by Favel Parrett, is an excellent example of this, as it focuses on less vocalised subjects that most people in our society see as taboo. The aspects of society mentioned are points such as child abuse, alcohol addiction, pain, loss, and change, but most obviously the family centred in all this drama and the dysfunctional relationships formed between them. The story follows Miles, Harry, Joe, and their father, living on the south coast of Tasmania, and the struggles in their life. The themes of familial relationships, and loss feature throughout the novel, and will be discussed within this essay.
Pauline Breedlove's personal history is shown to have played out in extreme measures in the life of her daughter. From the early part of her life she has worn a shroud of shame. The book says that it is due primarily to her injured foot that she felt a sense of separateness and unworthiness and
Moreover, Phil’s youngest son said about his father, “My father and I only board here.”. This further conveys the amount of time Phil spent at the office rather than at home; his own family didn’t even consider him in permanent residence at his own home. Other than anecdotes, Goodman additionally uses varying syntax to illustrate her annoyance at Phil’s choice of lifestyle. When describing Phil’s daily routine, her sentences are short, definitive, showing her distaste for Phil. “To Phil, it was work. He always ate egg salad sandwiches at his desk….On Saturdays, Phil wore a sports jacket to the office instead of a suit, because it was the weekend.” Goodman contrastingly uses lengthy, detailed sentences and phrases when describing Phil’s family, to convey her pity for them and show that Phil should have been spending more time at home rather than at work. “The youngest is twenty, a boy, a high school graduate who has spent the last couple of years, like a lot of his friends, doing enough odd jobs to stay in grass and food. He was the one who tried to grab at his father, and tried to mean enough to him to keep the man at home.” Although Goodman describes Phil’s family with sympathy and care, she does use sarcasm as a means to criticize the obituary’s description of the family. “She would be ‘well taken care of’.’”, Goodman quotes from the obituary, in reference to Phil’s wife, and she says “His ‘dearly beloved’ eldest of the ‘dearly beloved’

Security can be a tool to rationalize, legitimize, marginalize violence (keeping minority groups in their place) which could in turn reinforce systemic inequalities present in society by turning a blind eye to context. This dichotomy serves as a platform for other invalidation ideologies that works on the continuum of fear that can divide into categories of “us” and “them”, which are then used to send us messages about who is a threat, and leads to constructions of what individuals who are not able to stand up for themselves. The death of Ashley Smith illustrates how the range of oppressive structures were responsible for the persistent and severe denials of her fundamental rights. In this context, we can see that the state has both the means to violate and protect human rights.
Diction and syntax play more prominent roles in the formation of the piece, but the satirical references add interest and further advance Goodman’s conveyal of her feelings. The Onion, a humorous newspaper, uses satire to make fun of society humorously and ironically. Goodman uses this same technique to mock the harshness of the workforce and poke fun at Phil’s “perfect Type A” life. This straightforward article makes fun of fake obituaries and the typical businessman’s lifestyle. Goodman makes it very apparent that Phil lived the life of a typical businessman. She cleverly mocks his relationship with his family, calling them “dearly beloved,” likely taking that form his obituary, then continuing to explain the distance between himself and his family members. His “dearly beloved” children either say “had nothing to say” to him or asked others for clues on their father’s life. Goodman includes another line of satire in the seventh paragraph. A colleague of Phil gave his regards to Phil’s wife, Helen, saying “I know how much you will miss him.” She answered, “I already have.” Phil was likely “dead” to the family long before his actual death from coronary thrombosis. What did he have to live for besides his uber-important job and the family he barely knew? Maybe the “egg salad sandwiches at his desk” and “monthly game of golf helped him survive his workaholic lifestyle a little longer than seemed
To begin with, after being told her husband’s secret, she deserted him for a “less dangerous man”. She said the following: “Fair friend," said she, "be happy. That which you have coveted so long a time, I will grant without delay. Never again will I deny your suit. My heart, and all I have to give, are yours, so take me now as love and dame.”
A typical eulogy consists of praise, happy memories, stories, and positive personality features of the one deceased. In opposition, this particular eulogy had a negative tone regarding the sadness in her life, as well as blaming the royal family and the paparazzi for her untimely passing. This eulogy used aspects that most speeches, essays, and other forms of writing use, including pathos, ethos, logos, parallelism, imagery, and negative comments toward her unfortunate loss of life.
When Mrs. Mallard was informed of her husband’s death she reacted in a way that any wife was expected to act after the passing of their loved one. “She did not hear the story as many women have heard the same, with a paralyzed inability to accept its significance. She wept at once, with sudden, wild abandonment, in her sister’s arms (pg.395)”. She grieved on for awhile but then realized that life goes on with or without the love of your life. However many expect one to come to terms with someone’s death some point in life, they don’t expect it to be sudden as Mrs. Mallard’s epiphany.
