In the book “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, fire is used throughout as a symbol of goodness and rebirth. Fire is one great example of symbolism in this book.. Each of us has our own image of fire burning within us, and depending on experiences, it could be positive or negative. Fire has a dual image in the book, a symbol of destruction, and a symbol of warmth. Bradbury’s use of symbolism throughout the novel makes the book moving and powerful by using symbolism to reinforce the ideas of anti censorship. The Heart and the Salamander, the title of part one, is the first example of symbolism.
World War I was one of the most barbaric and horrendous events that impacted world history. In the novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich M. Remarque drives home this brutality through his main character. The theme brutality and carnage is displayed through the presence of death, violence, and the guilt the soldiers must carry within them. The soldiers were permanently scarred by the events they witnessed as death is always around them.. At the end Paul realizes that everything flashes before his eyes after all his friends had died,” I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. I see how people are set against one another…” (Remarque, 263).

In conclusion Ishmael was going insane because he was alone he had no one to talk to and he couldn’t sleep at all. The second most important scene in “a long way gone” is when ishmael was capture by the army and ishmael becomes this kid that has no feelings he was just like a killing machine.This is an important moment in the memoir because now ishmael knows the other side of the story that most of the soldiers were taking drugs that’s why they were like killing machines. One quote from the book that exemplifies this aspect of the book is “in the daytime instead of playing soccer in the village square, i took turns at the guarding post around the village, smoking marijuana and sniffing brown cocaine mixed with gunponder. (121) This quote is important because it shows the reader what they were giving them to stay awake and don’t feel anything, it also shows what ishmael had
The laws are unnecessary because for a small crime, there are big consequences. These strict laws in the society made the main characters lose their individuality and freedom. Individuality is lost due to the meaningless laws and lack of education. One of the laws is “for writing this or even reading this is 3 years in prison” (Rand ch.1, page 14). This is saying that the people in the society all have to be equal.
This is because almost nobody wished to obey The Council, certainly not twice. Lark Hill is a private building for political prisoners.

On the other hand, people in modern society mourn when someone passes; Present-day has funerals for their loved ones. Suicide is not as normal as it in Fahrenheit 451. There is emotion in present-day society because
(AGG) It’s funny how one little thing can change an entire person’s perspective on something. (BS-1) The main character in this story, Montag, was like everyone else in society, mesmerized by the government. (BS-2) But, along his journey, people that met him influenced him to turn away from society, which lead him to questioning everything. (BS-3) He later realized that no one actually listens to each other because they are surrounded by technology, and this causes him to act out against his society.

Almost all the energy that we use eventually comes from the Sun. The exception is the heat of radioactivity deep inside the Earth, which is ultimately responsible for processes taking place inside the Earth. As far as the crust itself is concerned, all the processes that we use eventually depend on energy from the Sun. Biomass is the term used to describe all the organic matter that exists on the earth 's surface produced by
