Layers of illusions are burned away and all Paul has left is reality. In Willa Cather’s tragic short story “Paul’s Case: A Study in Temperament,” the flowers capture the reality world Paul departs from. For instance, critic Sherry Crabtree asserts that the red carnation symbolizes Paul’s alienation from the world of Cordelia Street (Crabtree 206). Crabtree observes the patterns of how the flowers reveal Paul’s negative outlook on life. On the other hand, some critics claim that the flowers capture the fantasy world Paul envisions.

In the movie The Lorax, the environments in Thneedville and outside have a big impact on the people. Once a place filled with fresh air, clean water and trees is now a place of despair for the environment.

When Ted, a love struck boy, hears that the girl of his dreams, Audrey, would do anything to have a tree, he begins his search for some information on what happened to them all.

In sheer malignity, thinking to set back our plans and avenge himself for his ignominious expulsion, this traitor has crept here under cover of night and destroyed our work of nearly a year." (73) In this part, Napoleon has separated between the animals in the farm as “us" and Snowball as “the enemy”. Also, he described Snowball 's state, which is a lie, by using the word “malignity” which means malevolence. This time, as the windmill not only has high sentimental value to the animals but also stands for their pride, the animals begins to learn that Snowball is genuinely guilty and think out ways of catching him.

Ownership causes one to become selfish and so self-absorbed in their property that they wouldn’t allow other people to experience the joy they have through their property. In “My Wood,” Forster explains how uneasy he felt when he saw people walking through his woods and going to his blackberries. Because of the unease that he felt, Forster thought that in order to show people that the blackberries and his wood was his, he should build a pathway with high stone walls, blocking the view of the blackberries from the public, just like the wood near Lyme Regis, where people “circulate like termites while the blackberries are unseen.” Through the example, Forster illustrates how the ownership of his wood causes him to become selfish and so self-absorbed in his property that he wouldn’t want people coming into his wood and experiencing the blackberries. We often time are just like Forster. We don’t really like it when other people use our property.
”But always the mists of autumn evenings grew more chill, and the sun's strokes grew shorter. Then man saw winter moving near, and he became fearful and unhappy.” From this quote in “Native Lore:How the Coyote Stole Fire” a Native American Lore, the reader sees that winter is coming and people are cold because they do not have fire. “Native Lore:How the Coyote Stole Fire” a Native American Lore and “Firebringer” are about the protagonists feeling sorry for the humans and wanting to help the cold people from winter so that will not die.

Both Coyote and Prometheus are alike because they both want to make sure that the people are not cold from winter.
Magdalene’s comparison parallels Milkman’s actions to how Macon II simply ruins the live of his tenants carelessly. Finally, Corinthians states that she and her sister will no longer create the artificial roses and allow milkman to benefit from their labor. This shows how her disdain for her brother motivates Magdalene to stand up for herself by cutting off a toxic relationship with her brother. It is also significant that the sisters create fake roses which symbolize the lack of love and false love within the dead household. And now that the production of fake roses has ceased so has the artificial love between her and her brother.

One of the great painters of the Romantic period is Joseph Mallord William Turner. Turner belongs among Romantics, who rebelled against the rational thinking of the Enlightenment by championing intense emotion and feel as a form of aesthetic experience. This can be seen in Turner 's The Field of Waterloo (fig 2).The heavens are in upheaval, darkness smothers the scene, and dead bodies litter the ground, producing a scene fraught with emotion. Turner chose to show the aftermath of Britain 's victory at Waterloo, shrouding the battlefield in gloom and the only source of light illuminates only the dead and their searching loved ones. Emphasizing the realities of war, suffering, and grief rather than fleeting victory.
