The theme was made clear when the story said ¨The sniper turned over the dead body and looked into his brother´s face.¨(Page 9) His heart probably sank when he found out the man he shot and killed was his brother. The theme of the story ¨The Sniper¨ by Liam O'Flaherty shows us that fear can lead to destructive decisions. In the beginning, the sniper kills the man in the turret and kills the woman. Later on in the story, he shot the ´enemy´ sniper with the revolver. The theme was created when he finds out the man he shot was his brother.
The novel ‘Heroes’ by Robert Cormier features a young war veteran, Francis Cassavant, who returns to his childhood home of Frenchtown from serving in the Second World War and has suffered severe deformities from a fall “on a grenade” which has led the readers to sympathise him and to believe that he is a “poor boy”. Francis has returned to Frenchtown with a specific purpose of killing Larry LaSalle, who is first portrayed as the glamorous and perfect man with a “smile that revealed dazzling movie-star teeth” and “a touch of Fred Astaire in his walk”. Through Larry’s character, Cormier is able to explore the various themes of the novel: masks, power, heroism, and guilt. Although Larry LaSalle is presented as a “hero” and a “champion”, there is an air of ambiguity about him that suggests that he is wearing a mask, exploring the theme of masks, as it contrasts with his “dazzling movie star” good looks and his “big hero” persona. The ambiguity initially starts in the very beginning when Francis mentions that he is “going to kill” Larry LaSalle; Cormier uses this technique of foreshadowing and first person narration so that the readers are constantly alert to the subtle early warnings that Larry LaSalle is not what he made out to be, that he might be wearing a mask.

The duo kill Brett, find the suitcase and are about to leave until a man hiding inside the bathroom attempts to kill the two. Though at point blank range, the man misses all 6 shots and the pair quickly neutralize him. Jules thinks it is a sign of god that he should stop living 'the life ' (The job of being a professional killer) and quits 'the life ' hoping to maybe travel to Europe or just go with where life takes him, while realizing all the people he killed and all the destruction he lay waste to. (Pulp) This example displays the third trait of heroism because though Jules 's job is to kill people, he eventually realizes that though he collects money and nothing disastrous has happened to him or any of his loved ones, that what he is doing is wrong. He recognizes that he killed countless people and that he presumably left crying families and several other problems other people had to solve.
The main character is busy barricading the house to make it safer, Mr. Cooper is in the basement waiting for Ben to do all the work and take all the risks, much like slave owners did many years ago. Correspondingly, throughout the movie Ben is betrayed and held back by the white people around him, just as the African Americans have been for many years. The ending of this film is very graphic and symbolic, as it shows the African American character being murdered and treated like something other than human, he is shot, but there are no repercussions for the shooter, instead he is praised by the sheriff. After Ben is shot the hunting party is shown sinking their meat hooks into him to bring Ben’s body to the fire to be burned. While meat hooks are used by butchers to move meat, they are also used to hang meat, which is symbolic because of all the African Americans that have been hung by radical assemblies.
