As literary tools, however, the Veteran of Ellison’s novel acts as a soothsayer of truth, particularly if we attribute his words towards Coleman Silk. Lester Farley, though not black, commits the act of eliminating Silk and placing him in Ellison’s metaphorical hole, making Silk truly invisible by death. The act of murder is the extension of Ellison’s Veteran wanting to bash the narrators head in. The two veterans of these novels act as symbolic protectors of a nation, which cannot afford fallacious behavior, such as that of Ellison’s early narrator or Silk’s refusal of ancestry, if the issues of a post-slavery society are to be
The short story “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan explains a mother and daughter relationship that has many differences within a conflict in the story. The narrator demonstrates that the mother and the daughter do not agree with the same aspect on life.

Her mother wanted the narrator to become the perfect traditional daughter, but the narrator’s differences triggered with her mother. An indication from the story is, “Unlike my mother, I did not believe I could be anything I wanted to be, I could only be me” (137).
Another example of metaphor in the novel is how Mr. Twain depicts the characters to enunciate his views of the bigotry of social norms pushing the reader in a sense to understand what he means. Huckleberry Finn with his innocence and Jim with a thirst for equality metaphorically portray the minorities, Pap the trope of humanity that are corrupted and deprived by those that are uncivilized. “You’re educated, too, they say—can read and write. You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t?
In this type of narratives, women are represented as subjects, capable of relating their own story. However, despite the increased room for the subjective representations of consciousness, the maternal perspective is still silenced under the weight of the daughter 's emerging subjectivity. In Oranges, the mother herself renounces to her power to speak. When she starts suspecting that her daughter’s lesbian tendencies, and thus the girl’s deviance from the heterosexual norm, may be due to the power they were given inside their religious community, she decides to step back, affirming that ‘the message belonged to men’.
In conclusion, the novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” presents the theme of love and that being in a relationship hinders independence but in an unique way. Hurston uses symbolism like Janie’s head rag which stifled her independence and when burned, made her feel free. She also uses the motif of communities, which are ever present throughout the book, using specific examples such as when Janie isn't allowed to go to the funeral, which hinders her independence because she isn't making choices for herself and isn't doing

Twain use the book Tom Sawyer to feature the characters in this novel in that the events in Tom Sawyer portrayed Huck as a marginal character in St. Petersburg. The first chapter explores the two major themes of the novel which are race and society begins Twain’s exploration of race and society, two of the major thematic concerns in Huckleberry Finn by implicitly/indirectly contrasting the type of slavery that is typical/normal with the more brutal form of plantation slavery since by describing the “better” version of slavery, Twain more sharply criticize the subtle degradation that accompanies all forms of slavery

She herself doesn’t realize it until it’s too late. This character is very naïve and it is going to get the best of her. To start Oates guides the reader to empathize with Connie by showing us how her mother speaks to her in a way that is emotional abuse. For instance, in the book it states “her mother who noticed everything and knew everything and who hadn’t much reason any longer to look at her own face scolded Connie about it” “stop gawking yourself who are you?” You think you’re so pretty she would say” (Oates, 389). From this statement we can quickly review that Connie’s mom obviously has a jealous reaction to Connie’s appearance.
