There are many factors that determine how people behave in their daily lives. We are run by a number of rules and regulations that influence the way we behave, talk and live. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding shows that without the influence of a civilized society and law and order, people’s characteristics can change drastically. Similarly in Macbeth, Shakespeare represents the loss of morality of a leader as his hunger for power clouds his judgement. Both pieces of literature present how both writers view the breakdown of morality through the breakdown of civil behaviour.
Lord of the Flies" demonstrates the socio-ethical and political manifestations of anti-utopian conflict.

The tragic duality of human nature leads to weakness, hopelessness, lack of understanding (Ralph, Piggy, Simon). The WWII changed the life of William Golding and opened his eyes so that he could see the reality of humanity.

The two authors had similar intentions on the plot of each literary text. Furthermore, these decisions had influenced the tone of suspense dramatically. The works had both started innocent and took a darker turn as the plot continued on its railroad track; a specific path Poe or Morris leads one down can determine the ominous impression they implement into the stories as a whole; the techniques expressed in Ruined allowed the book to obtain a stronger hold on the reader’s interest, setting the plot in motion. Without Paula Morris’s tactical strategy, the novel would not have been as attention grabbing as it was. Moreover, Poe’s story contains dragged out scenes that increases the attitude of it.
Society has an evil deep within. Most don’t notice it because it is them, we are the evil, people are the evil.

It also severely weakened the German government, so that when the time came, it became a lot easier for Hitler on his way to power in Germany with fascism and nazism. And in most people’s opinion, Hitler is the main character and factor of the Second World War. But without the treaty of Versailles, Hitler was most likely to fail on his path to power in Germany, and would never have succeeded to start a war in the first place.
The treaty of Versailles unfairly punished Germany by damaging it’s economy and it’s military, which will directly lead to World War II (WWII). The treaty was made in 1919, with almost no participation of the German government. Germany had the choice between signing it or facing the ownership of it by the Allied Nations’ troops.
