Everything in the ending of the novel goes mysteriously right and all the characters achieve the happiness they were seeking out in the beginning. A few examples include: Jim becoming a free man, Pap, Huck’s father dying so Huck is no longer subject to his alcoholism and abuse and Tom Sawyer, one of Huck’s closest friends, surviving a gunshot wound while aiding Huck and Jim during Jim’s escape. Twain uses realism and romanticism in a balance to keep readers in touch with reality as well as allowing readers to have a happy ending

Bradbury probably used this theme to help the ones who lost a loved one. This will calm them more because they’ll realize that their loved one is always with them, alive deep inside their heart. A loved one never dies because they are loved by someone and exists in someone’s memory. As long as someone remembers you, and has memories you can never die. This also points out that even though Bradbury is dead, he was loved by many and still is.
“For you, and for any dear to you, I would do anything” (Dickens 117). Sydney Carton says these words in Charles Dicken’s novel, A Tale of Two Cities. He, along with other characters, makes sacrifices for the people he loves. These actions show that it is in a human’s instinct to be kind. Many sacrifices executed in the name of love exhibit the intrinsic goodness of human nature, as seen in the actions of Dr. Manette, Miss Pross, and Sydney Carton.
Along with his loving wife, Mrs.White and their son Herbert, the family bonded well and at first did not seem to be distant from each other. The story was full of life lessons that are useful in today’s world, even though it was published in the 19th century. Jacobs uses foreshadowing throughout “The Monkey’s Paw” to prove that ignorance can cause people to make poor decisions; his use of suspenseful tone and dark mood show that those decisions will lead to bad consequences controlled by fate. The constant state of ignorance with the White’s family created poor decisions in which the use of foreshadowing subtly hinted.
Will is virtuous throughout the whole novel, and even though he is tempted by impure desires, he stays virtuous. Being a good person isn’t easy and there will always be times that there will be temptation; what matters is whether you let the temptations control you. Through Will in particular, Bradbury makes it possible for any reader to personally connect with this piece because everyone has faced an “evil”
Lj Laulu Periods 4-5 In the novel The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, it is brought up that one decision could change the life of Ponyboy Curtis and his brothers. As many believe, Ponyboy should undoubtedly stay with his supportive and caring brother, Darry. Yet others may believe that Ponyboy should be put into the system to find him a safer place to live. He would be better off if he remained with his brothers because he would be happy, the fact that they truly care about Pony and his well-being, and he would be with people who would go to great lengths to protect him. Staying with Darry is a better choice than being put in a boys’ home because with his brothers, he would be with people who truly love and care about him.
Edmond’s journey seeking revenge has taught the readers that only those who have felt the deepest of misery know the feeling of true happiness. “There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life” (Dumas 214). This quote infers that because Edmond Dantes spent 14 years in “hell” he is now able to enjoy happiness in a deeper way than those who have not felt the anguish of Chateau D’if.
In one example she tells him, “You are favored with superior advantages.” She says this to imply that John was raised in wealth and opportunities, and he should think twice before he lets that go to waste. She would continue on and then so end with, “Do honor to your country, and render your parents supremely happy.” I can imagine a smile appearing on John’s face as he reads this heartfelt message from his mother. She shows her support for her son and lets him know that she believes even if nobody else does.
World War I is a gloomy and cruel place; it obliterates the beliefs of fighting for one’s country and transforms the minds of the soldiers. This realization is found in Erich Maria Remarque’s book All Quiet on the Western Front. In the book, a young teen named Paul Baumer and his friends join in the war believing it’s going to make them become important and that fighting for their country is such a great privilege, but once they are in the war, they all realize it’s not the same as what they were told. The young soldiers witness what war is truly about and they reflect on what they were told, knowing the truth makes them see they were told lies, so they are the same which obliterates their trust in the adult world. Remarque employs symbolism,
