In a world in which survival is nearly impossible, survival has become Eliezer’s dominant goal. He admits that he lives only to feed himself.

Though it is crucial to Eliezer to remain with his father at all costs, even the link between parent and child grows tenuous under the stress of the Nazi oppression. When, in this section, Eliezer relates with horror a story about witnessing a thirteen-year-old child who beats his father for making his bed improperly, he seems to feel that the event serves as an implicit cautionary tale.
The song “Love Is Not Over” reminds me of Othello because it talks about a relationship that has gone to ruin. This song is a perfect reflection of the relationship of Othello and Desdemona because it’s a relationship that was at first happy but ended up being ruined. The lyrics, “why are you getting farther away? So far that I can’t reach you? Tell me why, you’re so far away, why can’t you see me in your eyes anymore?” Which can relate to the theme of betrayal or heartbreak?
Christ begins this parable with the younger son requesting his inheritance. “And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them.” The younger son feels he is free from his father’s authority and embarks on a journey that is filled with reckless behavior that leaves him homeless.

This infuriates the older brother who believes he has been a righteous son. His father replies, “Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.

For example, Elie’s first memories at camp showed the immense struggle he had that night with understanding his situation. After some thought, his interesting conclusion was that, “the stars were but sparks of the immense conflagration that was consuming us” (21). Later in the novel, as the prisoners were being prepared for the long march, Elie concluded he must persist through the route to keep his dignity and to live.

We are allowed into each character to see what they’re doing, saying and thinking. In turn, we see the Bundren’s journey and in a more complete way. In Darl’s last part we see that he has lost his mind through his thoughts, we don’t have to rely on Cash’s account of when he is taken away.

Marriage, and later the birth of his son had softened Armand Aubigny’s imperious and exacting nature greatly," (Chopin, pg. 510). His happiness is something that changes his personality on the treatment of his slaves, but after three months pass by and he sees the difference in his child his temperament changes to: "the very spirit of Satan seemed suddenly to take hold of him and his dealings with the slaves," (511).
