I groped for the stair railing in the dark and felt a warm hand take mine. Startled, I looked up into Ultima’s brown, wrinkled face (Anaya 24).” The loss of innocence ties in with the mythical aspects of the novel because when Antonio feels saddened by an event that will eventually reflect on him, he turns to Ultima as a saving grace to treat him and make him feel better. The loss of innocence is an important theme in the novel considering it is a major issue that Antonio has to face upon aging, and Ultima acting as the supernatural force brings light to the hard-to-face
While Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter certainly tells a compelling story, the novel also acts as a psychological study of sorts; delving deep into the minds of complex and troubled individuals. Each main character; Hester, Dimmesdale, and Chillingworth, is confronted with their own predicament to which they all react distinctively. Their responses to Hester and Dimmesdale’s sin are constructed by their own distorted perceptions of the world due to the mental illnesses they are all troubled by. Each character’s method of retaliating, coping, or succumbing indirectly reveals the illogical patterns within their mind. In Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, each character faces unique mental afflictions, as Hester battles clinical depression, Dimmesdale

Eventually, the censoring becomes comfortable and begin to fear a life without it. This complacency is seen in the events from Ray Bradbury’s childhood up to the time of him writing Fahrenheit 451. Bradbury’s awareness of the influence censoring had was apparent; as a result, the well-being of society is dramatically emphasized.
He deciphers a way to tell the readers that as human beings, there are just as many ways to lose power as there are to gain it. Piggy is the main source of this information, and through his past, and the ways he acts, he somehow manages to show the readers the significance of how, through our personalities and things we can’t help, we lose so much power. Many books and novels in this world focus on the things that help us gain power and leadership, but the fact that Golding did the opposite, makes this book stand out more than the others. For the boys on the island, power is a big struggle; there are always fights over who gets to speak and who gets to be in charge and make all of the major decision. Through these fights and through these arguments, William Golding shows that power is a hard thing to grasp and it is something that is even harder to maintain.

This illustrates how Mattie feels confident, annoyed, and frustrated, and these feelings lead her to stepping up during tough times and taking charge. Anderson’s amazing story, Fever 1793, shows the theme that stepping up during tough times is important. It is seen how this is possible through the the way the theme impacts the characters and the different author’s craft moves the author
He first utilizes ethos in order to establish his credibility and principles before he proceeds any further, which the man does on purpose in order to gain the plebians’ trust. Proceeding his use of ethos, Antony includes a solid amount of pathos, allowing the people to realize his vulnerability and start to feel pity towards the man. In the end, this causes the people to place an even greater amount of trust in Antony; making it easier for him to sway the minds of the people. Similarly, Antony also utilizes logos and other various rhetorical devices. By using logos, Antony appears to have an even stronger argument, which compells the people to believe in his words even more.
But what led you into getting so into the movie? The short story “August Heat” created a sense of suspense using the use of foreshadowing throughout the story, the main characters’ sense of a bad feeling and a cliffhanger at the end of the story. The use of foreshadowing with describing the scene, setting, and characters made the story more suspenseful.

It is a crucial aspect to expressing how the events cannot be truly grasped by those who have not experienced it, and it does so in a way that still manages to showcase the depth of the story.

Pikelet is initially captivated and inspired by the surfers from Angelus because they are different from any other masculine role models he has encountered. Reflecting on the moment when he is first introduced to surfing, Pikelet recalls how “there was something special about his insouciance and the princely manner in which he cross-stepped along his long, old-timey board” (p34). After Loonie and Pikelet go out to surf with the Angelus crew, they are introduced to Sando. The first time Pikelet sees Sando, he is described as princely, calm and effortless in his surf performance and are immediately inspired by his surfing ability, as well as his overwhelming sense of masculinity. Sando offers the boys an alternative form of masculinity through surfing and presents a sense of freedom, adventure and excitement that is very appealing to the young boys.
Although in The Lord of the Flies the boys discover another powerful way it can be used after Ralph and Piggy find it by the beach. It it used by the leader to bring everyone together and put direction in their plans to come. The conch shell also acts as an actual vessel of political legitimately.
