“He has changed himself into something awful, only by hiding his face” (Hawthorne, 681.) Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story, “The Minister’s Black Veil”, emerging from the Romanticism literary period tells the story of a young minister who begins to don a black veil that he will not take off until he dies. The author uses an abundance of word play to convey his message, hiding one's face is something that should not be done, and you should stay true to yourself. Norman German’s article, “The Veil of Words in ‘The Minister’s Black Veil’,” makes a variety of examples made aware of to support this idea. Hawthorne uses puns and dissimilar words that are known to be related to build his theme.
In the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding, because of three defining moments, Jack changed the most out of all the boys. The first of the moments that changed him occurred in the beginning of the novel on page 23 when Ralph was chosen to be the chief of the boys instead of Jack. Jack was upset at not being chief, but he still took a position of leadership by making the choir boys the hunters and volunteering to be in charge of them. Ralph says “Jack’s in charge of the choir. They can be-what do you want them to be?’’
In the novel Lord of the Flies, it is obvious that the character Jack is the savage compared to all the other boys on the island. Jack is the cause of all the arguments and death that will later occur on the island. Many of the boys on the island are scared of Jack when he acts cruel and selfish. This makes them join his group, so they don't have to worry about getting hurt. During a group meeting Jack says “We shall take fire from the others,” (Golding 161).
Throughout the centuries knowledge can be in various ways be claimed to be the key component to developing a strong civilized society. This can be demonstrated in the novel Lord of the Flies, throughout the novel, this certain concept of knowledge is present, especially when the group of boys decide to use perhaps one of the most symbolic objects in the book, the specs that belonged to Piggy to create a fire that was used to signal any kind of ship or plane. “‘Piggy! Have you got any matches?’ … ‘His specs-use them as burning glasses’” (36).
"Does this safari guarantee I come back alive?" The quote I chose came from the beginning of A Sound of Thunder. It sets the tone of the story by putting danger and excitement in the reader's eyes. When I read this quote I automatically thought that what I was about to read was going to get me on the edge of my seat. I think Ray Bradbury put that line in the beginning of his story to excite them and have the thinking what's going to happen next all throughout the A Sound of Thunder.
Throughout the whole story, many can be picked in the parable that has characteristics to a typical dark romanticism. The characteristics show on the Black Veil in the style that is unique to Gothic literature and other elements. The Black Veil is known as the secret sin of Mr. Hooper, many want to know what it is but Mr. Hooper keeps it to himself.

This is a typical characteristic of the black veil being fearful and interesting to know about.

The quote “To be free, a man must be free of his brothers.” to me means that one can’t truly reach their full potential if they let everyone else dictate what to do and how to do it. One truly can discover this once they’re alone with their self. All of his life Prometheus had felt different from his brothers, like he was an outcast. Once he was finally free of the “love” of his brothers he finally realises that they have been brainwashed all of their life to love their brothers so much that they cannot reach their full potential.
What would life be without evil in the world? Many optimists believe there is an inherent goodness gifted to all people at birth and fundamentally embedded in us that dictates our actions, but the reality is exactly the contrary. People are evil, not because of a desire or choice but out of absolute necessity on account of none of the things we enjoy today would be available or even invented without some evil. Evil, within limitations and with restrictions, is productive for a group of people. Society, with all its art, culture, music, and glory, was created because there was evil present and now works to destroy its very creator through police departments and social initiatives.
The quote found in chapter six of “Lord of the Flies” impacted me greatly because Jack desires to violate the order set by Ralph which was adapted in order to maintain balance between the young men on the isolated island. Also I became amaze by the manner in which Jack wanted disrupt the balance that have been able to accomplish by Ralph. In this quote, one can observe the symbolism of the conch which is power and authority. However, Jack have the ambition to break or overpower the force of authority the conch illustrates. Furthermore, one can also predict that in the future Jack will break the order set by Ralph since from this moment he is not believing that everyone have equal rights of giving their word.
