Huck Finn is still relevant today in the fact that it has a very important life lesson that everyone should know. On his adventure Huck learned not to follow the rest of society and to do what he thought was right. When Huck decided not to turn Jim in he was so torn about what to do. Of course the answer is obvious for most of us that no he should not turn Jim in however, Huck was raised in a society that pressured him to thinking that he should turn him in. Even while having been raised in this type of racist environment Huck realized he didn’t care what the “sivilized” people thought and he wanted to help Jim.
Blame is when someone assigns the responsibility for a fault on someone else. People blame others because they do not want to take responsibility for the fault because it might hurt how people view them. Blame is a factor in Romeo and Juliet as there are various events that are the cause of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.

Even though he knew if he got caught for the things he was doing, he still took the risk because his choice to learn and invent was up to him and only him. He came forward with his invention because he thought he would make it in with the scholars. Equality didn’t have to come forward with it but he did, it was his choice.

O’Brien wants to follow through with his plan of revenge on Bobby however his morals prevent him from doing what he truly wants to do. This is shown when O’Brien says, “Jorgenson blinked and tried to smile. Oddly I almost felt sympathy for him”(O’Brien 189).

According to Charles Mccardel“ He withholds the truth, but finally admits to his transgression. He does this partly to ease his conscience, but also (he hopes) to save his hide and protect his loved ones amid a witch hunt that's running out of control.” Even though he tells Elizabeth what he had done with Abigail without her having to find out through somebody else she does not trust him anymore.

The Picture of Dorian Gray Literary Essay Foreshadowing is a literary device used as a warning or indication of a future event, this literary technique is ever present in the demise of Dorian Gray.
