Loss of Humanity “I didn't know that this was the time and the place where I was leaving my mother and Tzipora forever”(29). In Elie Wiesel’s Night, this is where the book took a turn for Elie. He was still new to the concentration camp and he was being split up from his mother and sister forever. Loss of Humanity is what really changes Elie from a bright spirited boy, to a young kid that was sad almost all the time. At the very beginning of Elie Wiesel's Night, you meet Elie for and he wants to learn more about religion, but his father doesn't want him to.
Black e mo…”(Morrison 65) This forced her to become angry and since she has no one to shout at without being shouted back at, she ends the cycle being at the lowest of the low. So she starts to believe everything that she is told is true. All of this harassment from everyone in her life pushes her emotional and mental capacity to the breaking point until she drowns in the pursuit of trying to fix everything that she has ever been picked on for. She becomes insane and disconnected from reality, living in her own bubble of a world. Gaines uses a similar setting in A Gathering of old men to produce the same thematic conclusion.
Lewis wrote some of his novels in a way to not only educate the world that selflessness will always win but also the fact that selfishness will always lose. One of Lewis’s notable works -- “Till We Have Faces” -- clearly demonstrates how selfishness loses but selflessness wins. In “Till We Have Faces” by C.S. Lewis, Lewis portrays Orual as a villain as a result of her jealous actions which not only resulted in Psyche’s exile but also Psyche being forced to complete difficult tasks in order to regain her favor; however, Orual’s actions highlight the hidden message that Lewis is trying to convey - jealous/selfish love

Although Jaimito seems sweet and the perfect fit for Dede, he is quickly criticized. His marriage with Dede becomes bitter, argumentative and abusive. In one instance, he “grabbed her by the wrists and shoved her on the bed,”(176). As well as abusing his wife, he controls her and doesn’t allow her to be too involved in the revolution like her sisters and their husbands are. Throughout the book, Jaimito is controlling his wife's actions and constantly questioning her, which doesn’t cause him to seem like a great husband or even a kindhearted person.
'...lt was the first fissure in the columns that had upheld my childhood, which every individual must destroy before he can become himself...Such fissures and rents grow together again, heal and are forgotten, but in the most secret recesses they continue to live and bleed." This is another partial quote. Here Sinclair actually speaking about his father. I think this pretty seamlessly works into V 's story here. His father creates the fissure in his childhood.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.

The boys in "Refresh, Refresh" were so afraid of what Dave was about to say that they acted out of fear and started to beat Dave up. The boys turned into monsters because they were so afraid of the news Dave had because he was the one who told the family that their loved one was killed in combat. The boys still were so afraid of what Dave wanted to tell them that they continued to beat him up until, "He closed his mouth and tried to crawl away" (5). Another way to use suspense is to to show how someone is so angry and afraid that they turn into some they are not and get very violent. At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up.
His condition was so serious that he was basically depressed at the place where he should have been happiest. It is very ironic because while at the Front, all the men were discussing on what they are planning to do once the get home, but reality is nothing will ever be the same, wherever they go. Paul was the first to exhibit that loss of hope. I agree with the main thesis of this book that war is uncalled for, it is just a game that ruins innocent lives of the young population while the nations that they are fighting for are using them as toys, all just politics. The main thesis of this book is so easily shut down, but all it is is the truth, unfortunately wars are gruesome, gory, and
As they began to decline as a tribe, they began to turn on each other and lose faith in those in charge. They were starving and sick, and many of them were growing upset that the fact that nothing was being done to fix the suffering and struggling. Members of the tribe began to lose respect for Sitting Bull, as he struggled to keep his people together. However, this looked like he was letting his people starve and die and tension began to grow. When the parents of a sick daughter begged Sitting Bull for permission to return home for better treatment, he refused.
Although it has been said by some critics that ‘a work that does not provide the pleasure of significant closure has terminated with an artist fault,’ this part of the quote definitely does not apply. The Road by Cormac McCarthy is 287 pages of torment, heartache and anguish for not only the main characters but for the readers as well; but it doesn’t stop them both from moving on. As the book progresses, it seemed to only be getting worse for the father and son which was immensely disappointing at the time because happy endings are usually heavily relied upon in order to feel like the book is pleasant; even though it is proven in other works that, that is not always the case. The ending seemed to appropriately conclude the work since it wasn’t
