The Holocaust was one of humanity's darkest events and was the most devastating genocide in history. Even in the darkest event in history, there were those who didn’t give up hope and survived. One of these survivors was Elie Wiesel. He recounts the horrors he faced in Night, a retelling of what happened inside the concentration camp Auschwitz. Elie was only fifteen when he was deported in 1944. He tells the story about how he survived through the camps. With Night, Wiesel hopes that it can convince future generations to not make the same mistakes that were made which caused suffering and death. They often dealt with issues like starvation and selection. However death always loomed over them. Wiesel often uses words with dark connotations and meanings to describe the horror he experienced and to get his message across.
Lewis’s impact on society bears no measure. For Lewis, the only dependable critic of a writer’s value is time, and the only reliable measure is the enjoyment that results from reading that writer’s works.

Most individuals should see that Lewis was simply a gifted writer who found pleasure in literature and writing, and chose to share that gift with the world. For Lewis, the best art “hinted at the deeper structures of reality, helping humanity in its perpetual quest for truth and significance” (McGrath 379). Lewis’s works are unquestionably considered magnificent works of art, inspired by the God who invented art

C.S. Lewis is known as one of the most influential Christian writers ever. What many do not know is he was once an atheist at one point in his life. Atheism is a belief that there is no God or gods; Christianity is the exact opposite. Christianity is the belief in the one, true God, and remembering his son, Jesus, came to die on the cross for our sins. Lewis describes a Christian as one striving to be more like Christ and allowing Him to completely take over our lives for the better. Lewis had several atheistic views until converting to Christianity. He being an atheist gave him more knowledge when supporting his current beliefs of Christianity. On September 19,
The dynamic between the two brothers is quite interesting since they seem at first not to have a lot in common. Their behavior and actions demonstrate perfectly the differences between the two brothers. One could underline the fact that the dynamic between the two brothers is different from what we previously seen in Tex or The Outsiders because Peter and Edmund have two sisters.

This foreshadows what happened to Emily when she died; Lord Barkis met her in the woods and killed her, she disappeared from the town and was never seen again. Though Lord Barkis never loved her, Emily found someone who she truly loved which allowed her to move on from Lord Barkis and allow her legacy to live on as well. She found a way to move on without a marriage and she helped Victor be happy with his true love. Tim Burton’s style has a way of having poetic endings that while they represent life you feel warmth inside of magic and fantasy. In Edward Scissorhands, snow is a repeating theme. It’s brought up from the start to the end and ties themes together in a satisfying way. Cinematic techniques such as non-diegetic music are used consistently to establish the mood along with symbols. There are two specific examples of snow as symbolism in Edward Scissorhands. In order of how they appear in the film, Kim starts by dancing in the snow. As Edward continues to create snow with his hands, pleasant music floods the scene and the light focuses on Kim’s bright colors. In the next scene, at the end, Kim explains that she still believes Edward lives on or else snow wouldn’t come. By providing zooms in the right moments

The central conflict of “Hunters in the Snow” and “Paul’s Case” are primarily more similar than different. Both stories revolve around a protagonist who craves for more fulfillment in life, and both suffer the cold hostility of the world around them when they are unable to find what they are searching for. However, Tub’s desires are more interpersonal, as he has trouble connecting to the people around him, while Paul’s desires relate more to the world around him as a whole, dissatisfied with his dysfunctional world that he is so out of sync with.
