This is demonstrated in both the story of Vladek’s survival and Art’s attempt to reconcile with his father. In Maus, Art explains how he "can’t even make any sense out of my relationship with my father … how am I supposed to make sense out of Auschwitz? … of the Holocaust?” (II.1.4) Both protagonists in the book are confronted with troubles that drag the reader through the story as if they’re living it themselves. Art executes the dreary tone of this novel by sticking to the reality of the situations. As far as silver linings, even when Art starts to feel guilty about writing this book about his father, Vladek demonstrates acts of kindness, like when he tells Art that “Always it’s a pleasure when you visit.” (II.4.107) This cheerful interaction makes light of the few but powerful optimistic moments in this
The most impure form of this substance is the direct product of Satin. After warning of the possible destruction, Ginsburg infuses Greek mythological creatures into his poem to further the severity of the situation; which continues until the middle portion of part one. He addresses Whitman again telling him that he praises the, “grand subject” that can eliminate all matter. Places are named all around America where nuclear reactors were erected in order to build “a new thing under the Sun.” Ginsburg continues educating the reader that Hanger-Silas Mason is responsible for assembling the subject that’s hidden in the Manzano Mountains were he has mentally explored these secret facilities.

Hally pushes Sam’s attempt to bring Hally back into his world away. Then, Hally tears up the piece of paper that he was writing the essay on, to show Sam he doesn’t want to go back to how they were talking about the world with hope, because Hally thinks it 's all “just so much bullshit” (50). “Life’s a fuck up and it’s never going to change” (50) is Hally’s new mindset in this poisonous realm outside of Sam’s sanctuary. Hally loses all hope and pushes Sam away, the one man who could help bring him to “safety”, and he starts using his imagination wrongly in order to smite Sam. Hally says they should use their “imaginations sensibly” (51), but they way Hally is now using his imagination is cynically, as he is talking of crippled people dancing like broken spiders and instead of a trophy there is a
Every single person on this Earth is currently facing a problem, whether it is life changing or minute. The novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury touches upon each type of conflict a character can face: man versus self, man versus man, and man versus society. The story follows around a fireman named Montag who realized that the he and the world around him is incredibly ignorant and censored.

In the book “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, fire is used throughout as a symbol of goodness and rebirth. Fire is one great example of symbolism in this book.. Each of us has our own image of fire burning within us, and depending on experiences, it could be positive or negative. Fire has a dual image in the book, a symbol of destruction, and a symbol of warmth. Bradbury’s use of symbolism throughout the novel makes the book moving and powerful by using symbolism to reinforce the ideas of anti censorship. The Heart and the Salamander, the title of part one, is the first example of symbolism.

While the author nor the speaker were Jewish, “This Way for Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” allows readers to experience a bystander effect, so to speak. The speaker is powerless against the Nazi SS soldiers, and often during a crisis, if a person is surrounded by others, they wait for someone else to take charge and handle the situation. The speaker knows he will die if he challenges the Nazis, so he helplessly looks on in the hopes that someone else will end this madness. The author shares this story in order to stop the bystander effect, and empower people to prevent this if it happens again. There have been many genocides in history, and humanity (the people, but also the concept) will not survive unless we prevent another from happening.
