Some have argued that this is a thoroughly modern novel with Victorian Dickensian tenor. A large number of critics even purport it as another "Great Expectations".

Throughout the story, three major details of the narrator’s psyche are confirmed. First, we learned of the narrator’s deceitfulness. Every morning he lies to the old man with the least bit of guilt. The next continues to prove the madness as the narrator feels utter joy from the terror of another. Lastly, the narrator fabricates that the old man is simply not home to assure the officers.
Individuals can make their own interpretation of the themes of the short story, but without the grotesque violence and psychopathic nature of the characters, a theme would never surface. The purpose of the violent scenes and nature of the story is to provide a theme for the audience that a good man is not just hard to find but impossible to find because everyone is an imperfect human by human
To read this novel today it still shouldn 't be taught today, there are good but old lessons. We should be learning about new lessons, not old ones we can 't relate
His Books always have a theme or a moral to the story just like when he wrote “The Lorax” and “The Butter Battle Book”. I believe the shared moral between these two books is that humans tend to forget that everyone has an opinion and when we become immersed in power and wealth we tend to dominate and desecrate the environment. The Lorax is a book about a man his name is Once-ler, at first he was filled with excitement for these Tuffula Trees’ because they were softer than silk and could make a garment called a Thneed. Once-ler cut down the first tree the Lorax came out from the stump and tried to tell him to stop.
He wrote it with the aim of being a social experiment, a study of a man’s mind. While reading it we experience the mystery of the location this book is based on and how the characters react to different events. The book is addressed to a younger audience but that does mean other people can understand it. The premise seems realistic and it can trick the reader into thinking it is not a fantasy novel until the point the Grievers appear into the plot. It might not be a surprise why the book was a major success all around the world.
This section of the novel was powerful because it connected all of literature’s history. Instead of viewing literature as a mass collection of novels, it can now be viewed as one story. By viewing literature as one story “you begin to pick up on some of these other elements, these parallels and analogies, however, you’ll find your understanding of the novel deepens and becomes more meaningful, more complex” (Foster 31).

It is a great love story only enhanced by the outlandish characters and constant mockery. The pacing of the novel is slow at first until half way through the first volume. The plot then accelerates and by the third volume it is hard to put down. Characters such as Mr. Collins, Mrs. Bennet, and Lady De Bourgh were all hysterical caricatures meant that livened up the novel during times when the plot was thin. The novel would not have been as cohesive or interesting without characters to add comic relief.
The article “Tarmageddon”, written by Andrew Nikiforuk,starts by stating how Europeans felt towards Canada before and continues by explaining what has changed their stance towards Canada. He then bulges on by describing oil and the specifics of the oil Canada is refining while perceiving its problems along the way while portraying how Canada changed, explaining why those changes happened. Towards the end of the article Andrew looks into the government’s approach on the matter and how it is ignoring the entire incident. Finally, in the end he comes to his conclusion and warning about the country’s future and how it will become if nothing is done. In short Nikiforuk, elaborates about the negative effects of the tar sands on Canada.
With these insights, we might finally appreciate the novel for what it is and the message it tries to
