The comparison emphasizes

A

the joy the people feel that Joe, a long-time dictator, is now gone from their midst.

B

the power and glory embodied by Joe in life that is mirrored in his death.

C

the feelings of Janie's secret heart, which she must keep hidden, but which she can express in a grand funeral.

D

the wealth of the community and how they were willing to display affluence when others came to town to honor Joe.

E

the great sorrow that was felt by the entire town when the "father" of the town died.
