In “Seventh Grade” and “Melting Pot” these short stories, both have some time of internal and external conflict. Internal Conflict is when the conflict is happening inside of the main character’s head. External Conflict is when the problem happens between the main character and some force of nature. In both stories, there is a form of conflict or a problem.
Conflict can be defined as a struggle or clash between opposing force and is important to human life experience. There are a multitude of factors which can stimulus conflict between individuals, group, man and the environment or within one's self. There are many conflicts in the book "Sweetgum Slough" written by Claire Karssiens.

In the article, “You Are a Conformist (That Is, You Are Human)” written by Noam Shpancer, he claims that “Individually, we are designed to pick up social cues, coordinate and align our behavior with those around us… Conformity soothes.” Conformity is a major part in people's life whether it is to decide plans or to agree or disagree on a particular subject. In the play Antigone, written by Sophocles, many of the characters have the option to conform or not to their king, Creon. Antigone, however, tried to bury Polyneices, and Creon was trying to punish Antigone for violating his law. Antigone was being stubborn throughout the played causing the conflicted between the protagonist, Antigone, and the antagonist, Creon. The people who changed from
In Scott Russell Sanders’s essay, “The Most Human Art: Ten Reasons Why We’ll Always Need A Good Story,” indicates that stories “educate our desires.” this power is shown multiple times in Christopher Paolini’s Eragon, where the bond between Eragon and his dragon Saphira, educate people how strong friendship can do to people’s lives.
Conflict is one of the most essential literary devices. Conflict happens when a character experiences some type of fight or dispute. Conflict can be internal or external, and generally makes for a more interesting story and a much more enjoyable experience for the reader.
As humans, we each face conflict in our everyday lives. Conflict is basically anything that happens that a person may disagree with, or not be happy with. Conflict could be something as little as losing your pencil, or something as horrible as the holocaust. For example, Anne Frank was forced into hiding at the age of 13. There was nothing that she could do about it, so she kept her thoughts on the positive side by writing in her diary once or twice a month, and hoping for the best. She hoped and prayed that she and her family wouldn’t be found, and that the war would end soon; that’s what kept her going. Hoping for the better and having a positive outlook on her situation really helped her through that horrible time. In the story “Night,” Ellie is 13 years old when he gets taken away Auschwitz. His situation is horrible, but having a positive attitude towards that situation made his situation, at the time, not be as horrible as it could be. Even though he didn’t know what was going on, he looked on the positive side, and told himself that things would get better, and he wouldn’t be there forever. These are both good reasons that having a positive view on conflict will make your situation not as bad, especially in the time of war.
It makes the reader want to figure out the way that things are solved. One example of conflict in the story is man versus fate. The man would be Mr. White and fate would be the consequences of the paw. This was a very big conflict because it lasted throughout the whole story. Man versus Machine is another way of conflict in the story. The man is Herbert and the Machine is the piece of machinery at Maw and Meggins. It is very suspenseful because it doesn't give out a lot of information and makes one wonder. Another good example is the fight of mr. and mrs. White. They have a very big fight about if they should let Herbert in or not. The conflict in this particularly suspenseful and
I think she leans towards humanism, from what I saw in the beginning of the play. She ignores the King’s wrath, and feels the need to bury her brother despite risking her own life. She tells Ismene that it must be done. She proceeded to Creone that she did not abide by his laws, but rather God’s laws. She believed that it was better to treat her brother, as she wanted to provide for one another, under her faith in God. She believed that the senators would side with her, because she believed in humanistic honor. She believed that all people deserved to be treated properly. Towards the end of the play, she talks about how she had been treated inhumanely toward her presumable death.
