We were liars is a story about the ideals we are all supposed to aspire to, simply because of the way our society defines success; as being forceful, reckless, hasty and bold. The dauntless ideal Cadence falls prey for. In my opinion the book is trying to shed light on the insidious backside of our idea of heroism, and the too often gruesome consequences it might bring. That it more frequently than not results in the unnecessary suffering of others. Cady’s cousin Mirren on the other hand, had a very different life motto: ”Always be kinder than you have to”.
The Works of Flannery O’Connor: An Analysis of Racism and Self-Righteousness The ego is a force of the human mind since its beginning. The ego is what drives us to reach our potential, no matter the area of achievement. However, many times our ego can prove to be our downfall when we let it get the better of us. Especially in today’s age of racism in society, it is evident how the ego attributes to personal self-righteousness. Although prominent in the modern times of society, how has the ego affected literary works and their messages to their respective audiences.
Greed is one of the most destructive forces known to mankind and it can ruin our lives. We can all learn from stories when people were greedy and had to deal with the potentially deadly consequences. This theory is displayed in the short story “The Pardoner’s” Tale written by Geoffrey Chaucer when greed literally caused the main characters to die. The Pardoner’s Tale was the better story in my opinion because the story’s plot had a nice flow to it and kept the story moving, the theme hit me harder because that’s what the focus of the story was, and the author gave some interesting ways of making inanimate objects come to life and have an effect on the plot. It’s always easier to pay attention to a story that has a better flow to it and is easier to understand the plot because we are focused on that one idea and can learn more from it.
The article discusses the moral-scheme of Henry Fielding’s novel Tom Jones that has been labeled as corrupt and immoral by most of its contemporary critics. It analysis the reasons for being treated as such. Seemingly immoral characters Tom’s admirable qualities are highlighted and what forces him to behave vilely is also studied. Instead finding him unrighteous, the author argues that he is normal human with its equal share of goodness and weakness that makes tom’s character a lifelike, a welcome change from divinely pure, pious and one- dimensional characters as portrayed by fielding’s contemporary novelists. Fielding did not want to create a necessarily moral text that ignored the truth of how people are.
In a book about a tragic love story, one would not expect to find a deeper meaning behind the dangers of jealousy or peril of lust. However, in The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, there is a deeper meaning beyond jealousy and love. In The Great Gatsby, the author uses an empathetic storyline as a symbol to unwittingly give a complex depiction of the nuisance that people create that not only destroy our world but our society and gives warning to what will occur if we continue the path of destruction. With this intention, the brilliant opinionated writer, expressed his opinion through symbols such as the characters he uses, the setting the story takes place in, and the objects he uses in the book. Foremost, F. Scott Fitzgerald uses characters to symbolize the diabolical traits within a person.
A system of monstrous tyranny holds individuality captive making true happiness rare. When one is muted by society’s harsh regulations, they suffer internally and externally. In the novella Anthem, Ayn Rand creates a character named Equality who feels tremendous sorrow for the way his life is, but will eventually locate the power behind his own voice.

This story highlights the fact that humans are often influenced to do that which they would not normally do, especially when they are alone. This idea of persuasion is present in many works of literature, such as Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. In both, the protagonists tend to isolate themselves, as they fear who they have become through their greedy actions. Their isolation makes them more prone to be negatively influenced, which ultimately leads to their destruction. This is proven through the men’s internal struggles over whether to rebel, to be opportunistic, or to surrender to despair.
In John Steinbeck 's book “The Pearl” his use of foreshadowing describes the theme in the story and metaphor explains Kinos growing obsession with the pearl and his growing conflict with greed. Earth provides enough to satisfy every man 's need but not enough to satisfy every man 's greed, said Mahatma Gandhi. He was right and that is exactly the theme of this book. Power and want can corrupt even the purest of hearts and therefore people should appreciate what they have. Humans should be careful because if you reach for the stars you might get brund.
