Technology is known for its quick adaption and the new devices made to quench human activity. That is by depending too much on technology and forsaking human contact, which results in censorship and control over human thoughts. In addition, book burning embodies an element of censorship since it usually triggers from cultural, religious, or political oppositions. And since it is the main idea of the novel we can deduce that when no books are present people tend to become ignorant which is exactly what censorship is about. The theme of censorship is very important because it strives to combine all the events happening in the novel.
Garry Leonard’s “Dubliners” is a critique of James Joyce’s Dubliners. Leonard uses his critique is used as a mean to both inform any potential readers and thoroughly analyze Joyce’s style of writing in his book. Some important points that Leonard address to his audience is that Joyce’s stories never give a reader the happily ever after ending. Most of the time, the reader ends up with more questions than answers after finishing a James Joyce writing. For the common person, that would make a story seem undesirable to read but Leonard points out that this is the norm for any Joyce reading and it is what helps him become such a successful writer.

His Story Too often, oral tradition and the influence of storytelling is lost among generations. Yet the quality of a story continues to have the potential to fundamentally alter our perception of the world and our moral ideals. Yann Martel and Rudolfo Anaya are just some of the many powerful literary figures that are known to effortlessly revive and remind those willing that a good story is only as good as it is told. For the main protagonist of Life of Pi written by Yann Martel and Rudolfo Anaya’s Bless Me Ultima, the stories and events that took place within these characters lives catastrophically redefined their faith and the type of person they intended to become.
