Night and Day In the great history of man, there is no event committed as gut-wrenchingly ignoble as the Holocaust. Therefore, conveying the devastation and emotional trauma on a believable and personal level is a sign of fantastic writing, which can be seen in Elie Wiesel’s Night. Moreover, to take this awful situation and put an almost light-hearted twist on it is also increasable, which is seen in the film “Life is Beautiful.” Accordingly, both of these mediums portray main characters that are in concentration camps, but present them in varying ways that create stories that feel completely different. There are similarities and differences to be found in the stories through God’s provisions, the father/son relationships, and their tones.
Although Perry is responsible for the murder of four innocent people, Perry’s actions do not reflect on who he is as a person because he is easily influenced, therefore; showing how easily people can be pressured into doing something they would not typically do. Dick, a violent, cold-hearted, manipulator, has molded Perry into the person he is today. As Perry is a follower, Dick has taken advantage of that by turning Perry into the cold-blooded killer he is today. Capote displays Dick’s manipulation of Perry through symbolism to make evident that while Perry did pull the trigger on four innocent people, although the fault does not entirely lay on him, as he was taken advantage of by Dick. As Capote gives insight to Dick’s viscous personality, he symbolizes Perry to further display how Dick manipulates him.
When she arrived to Himmel Street she could barley read a sentence and now, years later she decided to write her own story. During the bombing of Munich Liesel concluded her novel “I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I made them right” (528). Just like that those couple of words saved her life and all of the struggles became worth it. Overall The Book Thief has a brilliant way of integrating the power of words. The message portrayed allows the audience to see how the positives can outweigh the negatives no matter the situation.
How would novels stand out or give a visual understanding if imagery never existed? Imagery sets an ideal representation to imagine words as a scene while reading a novel or script. In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, imagery is established multiple times, which allows events to be seen more significantly, identifies points of views differently, and demonstrates settings with more detail. Many events in the novel have been issued ironically, which shows significance due to imagery. Bradbury makes numerous events appear to have value because of the structure and demonstrates fire as a harmful source.
Oedipus needed answers, so he sent for a blind seer named Teiresias to give him the answers he was looking for. Once Teiresias knows what’s going on he dreads to tell Oedipus that he is the killer. The two men go back and forth until Oedipus says something that triggers Teiresias “you planned it, you had it done, you all but killed him with your own hands: if you had eyes, I’d say the crime was yours, and yours alone” (1.332-334). Oedipus still given the information and basically the whole truth is too caught up in his head and ignorant to the facts. This was an example of the irony that Oedipus is ‘blind’.
Beatty, the man that goes up against Montag, is also Montag 's fire captain, later in the story Montag kills Beatty to survive. Now, Montag murdered Beatty and that is against the law, but Montag has been justified in burning Beatty, it was either Montag or Beatty, if Montag didn’t kill Beatty it seemed Beatty would kill him. Montag had also trying to protect himself and Faber, Beatty had wanted to die anyway. Montag was already in trouble, by burning Beatty he gave him a second chance to escape and run to sustain his way of life. Montag killed Beatty and was justified in this action, because he was protecting himself and Faber.
Now what Tybalt is telling us is that Romeo has killed before but has only been sentenced to be a villain and not to death. So not only has he killed before he has bribed the judge of his real sentence. From the scenes, we don't see he would probably be off upping his kills per day always getting away with it. This is why I believe that Romeo and Juliet is not in fact a love story at all. Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer.
His fire chief makes him burn his own house down for having illegal books. He is justified in killing his fire chief and running from the law and hiding the books from his wife, because he had nothing to lose and he know what would happen if he was caught. Montag is justified in killing Beatty because he was protecting Faber who was a friend who was innocent. The only thing that Montag did was try protecting an innocent man who was not guilty of anything. Who was helping Montag by asking him things to make him think about and help him determine what to do.
I thought the best way for me to convey what I thought of Fahrenheit 451, what it meant to me, and what I would have liked for it to include, would be to write a sequel and explore the result of events such as those in the story. A theme I wanted to show which is apparent in the scene I wrote was consequences: I wanted to show the consequences to a disaster through descriptions of the destroyed city. I wanted to show the consequences of a way of life like that of the citizens in the city through a character like Sable, who is very passive, particularly in comparison to Montag (the first scenes of the two stories are meant to complement each other somewhat) - she does not even move until someone comes to get her (less apparent in the scene but more in the actual story is how Sable and especially her friend Lucy are disconnected from the reality of the world around them, and they learn to reconnect - Lucy somehow learns faster). Other themes I wanted to explore but that were not apparent in the scene I wrote were change (not necessarily ‘good’), moving on, meaninglessness, the ability to understand, mindfulness of others, the loneliness of all beings, and the importance friendship or relationships. Symbols, metaphors, and other figurative language I used in the text I wrote are smoke, fire, music/concert, a statue, rubble, and a daffodil.
The next example is ironic and an unknowing internal conflict when Oedipus speaks to Laius’ killer as if he is actually right in front of him and commands him “ to turn his hand against [him]” even though Laius killer is himself (KO 29). Oedipus’ pride will not let Laius’ killer get away with an unjust murder. Oedipus, believing the murderer is a sneaky and unjust man, tries to talk to him even though he is nowhere in sight. Unwittingly, his efforts are useless because Laius’ killer is Oedipus all along. The scene contributes to his downfall because as he searches for Laius’ killer he unravels the spark that will contribute to the flame.
