Pulsing With Heat Albert Camus wrote The Stranger, or L’Étranger, embodying the idea of existentialism. He includes a range of symbols, particularly sun, sunlight, and heat, all directly related in a meaningful way, that correspond to the larger theme of the book, in this case a universal idea exploring existentialism. The sun opposes its usual warmth and beauty in Camus’ novel. Although the symbol of the sun reoccurs in many instances throughout the book, there are three times when the images are extremely significant to the plot. Camus creates a character, Meursault, a very honest yet very indifferent man.

“As Meursault pulled the trigger, he could feel the heat from his cheek from the sandy bright beach.” In The Stranger, the author Albert Camus uses different methods of mood and atmosphere in the novel which heightened the understanding of the novel and contributed to the descriptive patterns of the book. From the heat symbolism that creates a certain atmosphere in the book, to the specific mood he portrays in the novel.This all goes into the pattern that Camus blatantly put in the book to show a specific mood and to add an atmosphere to the novel. To start off, when Meursault states in the book that he feels a certain way for example heat or temperature it gives way to the descriptive patterns and symbolism, for example, to quote from the novel itself, Meursault says...“ I was able to understand Maman better. Evenings in that part of the country must have been a kind of sad relief. But today, with the sun bearing down, making the whole landscape shimmer with heat, it was inhumane and oppressive” (Camus 15).
How do people face injustice, and what are their specific reasons for responding in this nature? When faced in the presence of injustice, some choose to ac and take control; whereas others ignore the plain fact of the certain injustice occurring.

Evidently Antonio’s wish was to have Prospero and his daughter killed however they were saved by Gonzalo a trustful councilor who set them up for a prosperous life on the island. It becomes clear that the violence in this play caused by Prospero was brought upon him and is therefore influenced by his brother’s treatment towards him, again we see that the need for power overpowers the love between the two brothers and later leads to a series of psychological torture for other
Light can also refer to life. Oedipus iron out the problem of Thebes and gives them a hope for a new life. He guides his citizens sail across the darkness of death and reach a new morning of life. Oedipus might have been blinded by ignorance but he was definitely not blind to the difficulties of his people.

In effect, Laertes evokes the distinction between honor and nature and the former’s influence over his decision to choose revenge over clemency. After an injured Hamlet wounds Laertes with the poisoned foil, Laertes laments that he is “justly killed” by his own “treachery.” (5.2.337). In blaming himself for his downfall, Laertes declares the justice of his death. Laertes possesses only a simple understanding of the immorality of murder because his honor, anger, and a lack of concern for his own damnation drives him to ultimately carry out the act. After Hamlet kills Claudius, Laertes states the justice in the king’s death and says, “mine and my father 's death come not upon thee, / Nor thine on me!” (5.2.359-63).
"I felt like jumping out the window. I probably would 've done it, too, if I 'd been sure somebody 'd cover me up as soon as I landed. I didn 't want a bunch of stupid rubbernecks looking at me when I was all gory". (Salinger 2010 : 58) Holden seems to think that it is better to die young than to become an adult materialist like his parents, brother, and nearly every adult he meets. In this case death act as a symbol of freedom, a gateway, a relief from one’s troubles and responsibilities, this is its very quality that at times caused Holden to consider it
Wishing to escape the cyclops’ bondage, Odysseus tries to get out of trouble and assumes that he and his men are safe by lying to the Cyclops. We can depict this through a quote found in chapter 9, “A wind from seaward served him, drove us there. We are survivors, these good men and I.” Being the heartless creature the cyclops is, he still goes on to eat Odysseus’ men, shocking them as they believed they should have gotten better treatment and a gracious greeting from the Cyclops as if they were noble heroes. However, soon Odysseus learns that
