This creates a dystopian world due to the overall lack of knowledge or care about their life. This further proves how the motif of fear best illustrates the negative effects of a dystopian society. Similarly, Bradbury continues to display the false sense of security when he talks about the need for firemen to burn houses that contain books, he states,
The pitfalls of failed critiques and the potential within the genre are spelled out, aided by good organization of ideas and the presentation of clear examples; however, many of the examples are left unexplained and the inclusion of the debate between spy fiction and detective fiction distracts from the main argument of the article and detracts from its power. Winks organizes the article well with a logical progression of ideas that build upon one another, creating a believable thesis. The article begins with an explanation of its purpose: displaying what has been done in the past, and what should be done in the future. This introduction establishes the relevant ideas in the reader’s head. It continues by revealing the most frequent mistake that critics make when investigating American detective fiction: the high road.
Bergson, Proust, and Shakespeare explore the effects of time on writers and each author notices that time deprecates not only themselves, as they grow toward death, but also various factors around them. Bergson understands time as an unavoidable essence that causes deaths, which persuades people to absorb knowledge to pass onto future generations. Proust views time as a factor that deprecates a hidden factor within him as he uses time in an example of the deprecation of satisfaction drinking tea. Shakespeare fears the ravages of time as his early sonnets focus on the negative repercussions of time, yet he finally ends up accepting them in his later sonnets. Each writer recognizes the tolls of time and effectively acts in order to experience
The least obvious character in this comparison is King Laius, already dead in Oedipus the King, but it is the hubris behind actions which led to his death, and is the catalyst for Oedipus’ tragic journey. King Laius, on the road to see the Oracle of Delphi, after being told a second time that his son would be his demise, meets Oedipus, and this is where fate wins (Laius).

He feels that he needs to be punished for all the things he has done in the past. When Sage asks why he is so desperate to die, he replies, “Because I should be dead, Sage.
The reader sees Kurtz’s diminishing confidence as he remarks “I am lying here in the dark waiting for death”(69). His final words “The horror! The horror!”(69) express his final recognition of humanity’s depravity and lack of self control. Marlow, also wrestling with death at the same time, recognizes the significance of Kurtz’s final judgement and remarks “If such is the form of ultimate wisdom, then life is a greater riddle than some of us think it to be. I was within a hair’s breadth of the last opportunity for pronouncement, and I found with humiliation that probably I would have nothing to say.
Reading this short part of the fiction text gave a sense of nostalgia and established a kind of connection and introduction to the unnamed character. I originally thought the conflict was going between the two since the narrator mentioned how he hated the other male (Baldwin 2). However, if this was the case, the story would have ended on page six, when the two went their separate ways (Baldwin). I also considered the narrator would have a conflict with the music. When the music first appeared, I thought it was very random and put it off as describing the background.
Readers will understand the point he was making but he could have made it in a different way. Even if a writer language use causes them to have a greater read rating, a Times writer might be expected to use formal English, not casual slang. When using evidence make a claim that is not biased to people 's own opinion. In Stein’s article, he states that children are constantly under peer pressure and uses evidence from an “ English professor at Emory, who wrote The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans”(29). He is using the research correctly, but the fact that he is using something that states that the generation is dumb is not very acceptable for an expert writer.
Oedipus, in Oedipus the King, lets his hubris get the best of him, and results in a horrible punishment for himself. In The Giver, the Chief Elder tries to eliminate any feelings/scenarios, which has potential to cause negative feelings; this in turn diminishes the quality of life for residents. Brave New World, Oedipus the King, and The Giver all have the recurring theme of the abuse of power which is detrimental to the society or/and the individual. In

Huxley's concerns with the potential of technology are to remove humans from the highest point.Love, friendship, struggle, happiness.
