When children are little, they are taught never to give up and persevere through tough times. But perseverance is one of the hardest life stills to learn. We can see this problem in main characters in many fiction novels. In Elie Wiesel’s Night and William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, the main characters of these pieces of literature want to pursue their hopes, but eventually the determination wanes. In Night, Elie was optimistic when he was first taken away by the Germans and believed he would eventually find the rest of his family, happy and healthy.
Doe Zantamata, an American author, once said, “Good friends help you find the most important things when you have lost them... your smile, your hope, and your courage.” In Frank Darabont’s film The Shawshank Redemption, hope and friendship are a large part of the characters’ lives, as they are inmates in the Shawshank prison. Andy is a newcomer and intrigues Red, an inmate who has been in the prison for a long time. Although Red is not sure what to think of him at first, they soon become good friends.
In many ways they both have an exceedingly clear and obvious theme of savagery. Savagery is a large part of the Lord of the Flies. An example of savagery is the quote “Kill the pig!Cut its throat!Kill the pig! Bash it in!”(ch9). The kids have developed a blood lust, as evident in the quote “We’ll close in and beat and beat and beat…”(91).
In 1923, Sigmund Freud proposed his theory that the make-up of an individual’s personality is largely governed by three fundamental components: the id, the ego, and the superego. Working through the unconscious and shaping behavior according to psychological fixations and conflicts or lack thereof, these elements evolve through five levels of psychosexual development (Freud, 1962). However, in spite of its compelling approach to the phenomenon, Freud’s structural theory of personality is riddled with limitations and as such, is subject to much criticism. The mind is layered into three states: the conscious, referring to the thoughts currently in our forefront; the preconscious, idle thoughts that can be easily accessed and brought to the conscious; and the unconscious, which houses the more instinctual drives that are repressed because it threatens the conscious’ equilibrium (Cloninger, 1996).
Jack exhibits this type of command, because under his conditions, he certainly enjoys being a savage. In the aftermath of Simon’s death, Jack displays that he uses terror to manipulate others when he said, “-and then, the beast might try to come in. You remember how he crawled-”(pg160) to one of his hunters that asked why they should defend the gate. Not only does Merridew uses the beast as his advantage, he has also shown that he’s willing to eliminate anyone who interferes with his path, even if it means crossing the line. When Ralph screamed at Jack that he’s chief, Meridew in response, charged at the original leader as if he was bloodlusted.

Civil Peace Valuables can consist of material goods and traits. Desite Jonathan Iwegbu losing many of his material assets, he still possesses an optimistic trait in Chinua Achebe’s “Civil Peace,” which allows him to look at challenges and improve them. He shows this many ways throughout the story. “Jonathan Iwegbu counted himself as extraordinary lucky” (389). This helped him improve these challenges and get over these obstacles because most people in his community had lost loved ones during the war, but thanks to his luck and him being courageous, his family had few losses, which gave him the opportunity to continue life as it was before he went to war.
For example, “Atticus Finch can inspire us to be better people and better parents and the story shows that it is not impossible to raise your kids to be respectful and humble people. Those traits are painfully absent from so many of today’s families.” (TKAM still culturally relevant, 8) What’s being said is that basically many of the basic manners known 50 years ago are lost in today’s society.
