American Silhouettes: A Tale of Anguish Volume II
A vibrant, welcoming neighborhood is infused with anguish after shooting | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Well, Ursula was; Etzel left the tome inventory in her capable hands. He returned to his desk, trying to find his place, with the lingering taste of her kiss on his lips. Such a distraction… though a welcomed one. She was the kindest person I knew. They knew of the approaching attack days in advance, but nothing prepared them for what came.
Many of their friends were students of magic, capable of retaliation, but Dolhr has its own ideas. They wanted the land, and they wanted the villagers out—dead or alive. Ursula refused to leave Etzel's side, and it was just as well.
He didn't want her to fight on her own; his anxiety would have been too much to bear. They hated fighting, and he hated that it was happening in their own village. They stayed close to home, casting spells back-to-back, comforted by the feel of the other behind them. Etzel could hear his wife chanting; it made the battle slightly more bearable. Her shoulders pressed into his as she arched her back, throwing out peals of lightning.
His body shuttered with the ground beneath them. He missed, but the guy bolted, out of sight. Do you understand? It was easy to pick off the enemies, but not easy enough.

The wood quickly caught, the flame eating its way up the exterior walls. It's suicide. Please , Etzel! Etzel tried to hold things down, but he was clumsily missing shots. He couldn't concentrate without his wife beside him, knowing she was inside their burning home. He had to follow.

When he burst through the door, she stood in the middle of the room trying to summon wind. Nothing was working—the fire had spread, and it was growing rapidly.
Ursula was visibly exhausted: Her hair was matted to her face with sweat and tears, her robes clinging to her small body. Etzel glanced at his study, but didn't dare enter.

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, two modern truths arise and forever change the concept of "hero.

The labyrinthine city and its frenzy magnify temptation and vice, and the overcrowding, exploitation, greed, and filth of industrialization consequently create a social norm of cynical indifference and an urban mentality vitiating the very substance of the hero. Second, the very notion of the ideal becomes subject to doubt, and consequently any would-be hero must contend not merely with the challenge of pursuing the ideal, eternally a difficult and perhaps impossible quest, but also with the proposition that the ideal might not exist at all.
Narrative forms become an arena for this crisis of modernity, and two closely aligned works from divergent traditions, Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground and Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, depict a persona which is alternately a variation, a corruption, and an inversion of the idea of the hero. Both works construct what Burton Pike terms a "literary city" or "word-city"--that is, an archetypal topos in a narrative of the individual and the mass, where the "mass" forms "a peculiar kind of anti-community within the dissociated culture" Pike A series of paradoxes defines the persona placed into this setting and defines, by extension, a new universal truth: isolation and anonymity amidst a dense population, an alienation from others which grows with increasing proximity, a simultaneous disgust with and fascination for the magnified profligacy and depravity of the city, and finally a pathological psychology and anti-social behavior paradoxically born of the pursuit of ideals.
Dostoevsky's The Underground Man and Scorsese's Travis Bickle, the protagonists of the two novels, see metropolitan society as an earthly hell in an age of a dying or already dead God or gods. They place themselves in an adversarial relationship with the world at large, and they pursue the ideals of spiritual reconciliation and self-realization in ironically repugnant actions.
Both, moreover, maintain a perverse sense for the sacred, and this perverted holiness or piety is evident in their discourse reminiscent of the confession genre, in their wrath for an iniquitous society, and in their compassion for the exploited and downtrodden archetypally rendered in both cases in the form of a prostitute.
