He spoke with family members of Alberto and Ernesto, he followed the journey to find realistic shooting locations and studied asthma, leprosy and Inca history (Travelogue, pg16). The most important thing that the film depicts is Ernesto 's young naive side. I believe that this is an important side to convey because it gives the viewer an idea of who Ernesto Guevara was before he became the famous revolutionary that we now know as “Che”. “This is Che before the beard, the cigar and the beret.”(Travelogue, pg16) One important characteristic that I believe humanizes Ernesto the most is his asthma. He has had asthma his whole life but he does not want it to get in the way of his everyday life.
Once Albert Schweitzer has said, “The tragedy of life is what dies inside a man while he lives.” This conveys that life is a precious gift, but during lifetimes, this gift has been wasted or abused, which turn into a tragedy.

He later states, “I was brought up in America but educated at Oxford, because all my ancestors have been educated there for many years. It is a family tradition” (Fitzgerald, 65). This is what Gatsby wants Nick to believe but, in reality, Nick tells the reader that Gatsby was a man by the name of James Gatz and he was the son of unsuccessful farmers.
F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.” Fitzgerald had something great to reveal to his readers in The Great Gatsby. To give some background, the novel is about a man, Nick, who is on the outside peering into the lifestyle of the extremely wealthy. His neighbor, Gatsby, has persistently worked for the past few years to meet Daisy again after he woefully departed from her to fight in the war. In the classic novel The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald has something to say and he uses effective diction, symbolism, and characterization to convey his idea that Americans must ceaselessly work towards living their own version of the great American Dream but they must not get caught up in wanting too much.

Imagination has long been the dividing line between madness and sanity, often being the saving grace between the two. Tim O’Brien clearly illustrates this in his novel Going After Cacciato through the epic fantasy of Paul Berlin, a young Vietnam soldier six months into his one year tour, trying to decide whether or not to desert the war and follow after his AWOL comrade Cacciato. When Cacciato originally flees the war, attempting to reach Paris, the squadron follows suit. It is not made clear to the reader how far the men chase after him, but upon returning they are assigned to an observation post where Paul constructs a dream of deserting as well. Throughout his six hour long watch shift, Paul Berlin constructs an adventure in his mind about

Therefore, Stephen sees Mulligan as a „usurper“. “A sleek brown head, a seal’s, far out on the water, round. Usurper.“ (20) The second relation that can be drawn from this is between Dedalus and Hamlet, which is the reoccurring theme inside the book. Levitt gives comparison on how the Martello Tower and its surroundings reflect the court of Elsinore together with Stephen`s insistence to wear black after his mother´s death just as Hamlet was persistent to wear black for his father even thought the rest of the court stopped doing so, as well as mentioning of Stephen`s theory about Hamlet introduced us to another reoccurring theme inside of Ulysses. Through the first six episodes the style is combination of third person narration and stream of consciousness intertwined.
