This jocular set up is what causes Giosue to have a more positive outlook on the experience as a whole (Life is Beautiful, 2000). Despite the awful situation, Guido keeps a shockingly positive attitude that rubs off on Giosue and the viewer. Even to the last moment before his own death, Guido puts a smile on for his child, which is truly bittersweet. Add an ending that melts the heart, and one is left with a feeling of emotional confusion, which is what makes this narrative to be incredibly memorable.

One of the closing lines of Elie Wiesel’s memoir states, “ From the depths of the mirror, a corse gazed back at me” (page 109).

This text suggests, if hardships come in your way, learn from them because pains strengthen and encourage us in the time of sorrows. Accepting adversity, helps you overcome it. “One who has never tasted what is bitter does not know what is sweet”. We cannot appreciate joy in our lives without a measure of sadness. Adversity puts people in undesirable
The setting is filled with the contrast of light and dark colors that appear in the background, skies, and lighting. These bring about certain emotions in the viewer. Gandalf and his horsemen charging into battle and illuminating the scene can be compared to how hope can repel despair. A best friend can help bring about hope, and in this movie Sam is distinctly the best friend archetype because of his enduring faithfulness towards Frodo. A best friend’s attributes mirror Sam’s; they are faithful, honest, and give wise counsel, which bring about hope in the friend.

In “Acquainted with the Night”, it embodies the abyss of despair that the narrator finds themselves in. The poem centers on the qualities of the night, and the night’s defining characteristic is its never-ending darkness. The poem’s very title shows how deeply bogged down in darkness the narrator is; the speaker has, ironically, become friends with it. The motif of darkness manifests itself in other examples as well. The speaker writes, “I have outwalked the furthest city light,” showing that he or she has transcended the limits of a normal person’s misfortune and instead exposed himself to complete and utter desperation (3).
Relationships are important for any human being and great ones can shape who we are and who we become. In Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis Grete's relationship with her brother is shown to be strong and to have its role in making her who she is. Kafka uses phrasing and word choice to impactfully illustrate the effect of Gregor's metamorphosis on Grete. From the beginning of the novella, Grete has great respect for her brother. This is shown by the way she asked Gregor to open the door.
