Human beings are all individually incredibly unique. This uniqueness is apparent in every experience of a person’s life, but it is the cycle of these unique experiences that connects all human beings. This cycle is defined as the human condition. Furthermore, this cycle is a series of inevitable life aspects that makes up a human being; two of the most obvious being growth and conflict. Within the human condition, growth cannot exist without conflict and conflict cannot exist without growth. The cycle of the human condition also has a cycle of conflict and growth within itself; philosophical pieces of literature and art such as Sorrow Teeming With Light, A Case for a Tragic Optimism, and the Dhammapada all explain instances of conflict and exhibit the importance of finding the light and growing through it.

There was nothing that she could do about it, so she kept her thoughts on the positive side by writing in her diary once or twice a month, and hoping for the best.
Conflict can be described as the struggle between two opposing forces, whether the forces being person vs person, person vs self or person vs society. Good examples of conflict can be found in almost any book. Margaret Atwood’s novel, the Handmaid’s Tale is a source of all three types of conflicts. The Handmaid’s Tale is about a society where females are given specific duties and are restricted from reading, writing, talking to others and looking at themselves in mirrors. The protagonist, Offred whom is also the narrator in the novel faces conflicts with herself, with other people, and the society that she lives in.

Liam O’Flaherty’s realistic fiction story, “The Sniper” takes place in Dublin, Ireland. The main character is a sniper fighting a civil war.

By using irony and description O’Flaherty shows that action without thought can lead to serious repercussions.
Conflict theory can best be defined as viewing self interest as a basic human motivation. This human motivation comes from the will to survive and a strong desire to fulfill one’s needs and desires in life. It is said that conflict typically arises between individuals, groups or family members out of competing interests. Conflict theory doesn’t see conflict as being problematic, instead conflict theory suggests that conflict is necessary and often desirable to produce change (Chibucos, Leite & Weis, 2005). When it comes to the family unit, conflict theory argues that power among family members is unequally distributed with the male figure typically having the most power within the family.

Title Conflict can influence an individual’s decisions and actions. People have conflicts everyday. Conflicts can sometimes be as simple as which milk you are going to buy. Conflicts can also be as difficult as watching your parents going through a divorce. Some people can prevail because they learn how to live with the difficulties of adversity.
Conflict is the essence of any literary fiction. The main goal of an author is to tell a story that keeps the reader interested. At the story’s core, conflict is the momentum of happening and change and is crucial on all levels for delivering information and building characterization as well as building the story itself. Conflict is the source of change that engages a reader and keeps them interested. In a story, conflict and action does what description and telling of feelings and situations do not.
