Over the course of the semester, we have come across many different themes that bring up major topics for discussion. After reading, “The Beast in the Jungle” by Henry James, the keyword that came to my mind was “real”. We have covered different pieces of literature that really represent the theme of realism.

“"God sees everything," repeated Wilson "That’s an advertisement," Michaelis assured him.” (159) This is a quote from The Great Gatsby where Fitzgerald uses symbolism to set the theme for the book. Symbolism is used in books all the time to get the author 's opinions across on how the book should be thought of. Green light is symbolism of dreams, Cars symbolise death, and T.J. Eckelberg is symbolising god. Fitzgerald wanted this book to be deep, meaningful, and consequential.
In note 20 Sontag points to Trouble in Paradise and the Maltese Falcon as the greatest examples of camp movies. Both of these movies held a great cultural significance and recognizability as movies to come out of “New Hollywood.” Camp was showing up in popular cultural and Sontag takes advantage of this by using popular art pieces and movies to help the reader understand camp, to show it 's universality, and as a tool to destigmatize camp. Camp sensibility at the time was often conflated with homosexual taste. By using popular culture and relatable evidence, Sontag contradicts that stereotype without breaking her neutral tone.
(Minkoff & Allers, The Lion King) Environmentalists find this dialogue encouraging since we need to understand the ecological system. It looks like everything is equal and there should not arise any questions why lions eat antelopes, for this is just the circle of life. However, a careless intrusion into the system can lead to ecological catastrophe: the Prideland turns into a desert under the rule of Scar (Whitley, 2008).

In the chapter “The Paragon of Animals” in the book The Agile Gene, Matt Ridley tries to understand whether humans on the same level as other animals. Although he presents evidence for both sides of the argument, I think he has more evidence supporting that humans and other primates are no different. Much of the argument for humans being superior to other animals can be refuted by Jane Goodall’s findings. In 1960, Goodall began watching chimps and noticed how similar they behaved to humans.
Richard Connell’s uses similes in “The Most Dangerous Game” to build suspense and make the reader think deeply into the meaning of the text.

For my book report I read the book The Pigman by Paul Zindel. The book is about two sophomores named John and Lorraine who befriend a man named Angelo Pignati over the phone while they were prank calling random strangers with two friends from school. Each chapter of the book is written in the perspective of either John or Lorraine and they are telling the story on a school typewriter in their library. John started out in the first chapter and Lorraine took the second then John took the third and it went back and forth from there. The reason Mr.Pignati is dialed was very specific rather than random.
