How to use depiction in a sentence?

  1. Eric Beeson:

    I appreciated the depiction of suicide as a process. There is no singular cause for suicide, and the show depicted the cumulative effect of multiple life experiences leading up to Hannah's suicide. Even though I don't like that the show sometimes vilified the people in the tapes as the 'reasons' why Hannah killed herself, one narrative that has been lost in the controversy about this show is the belief by some of the characters that things had to get better, they had to care and treat one another better.

  2. Jonathan Karl:
