When I first began reading Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, I thought that it would be the same story as other dystopian pieces of literature; however, after further analyzing the novel I found that Bradbury used many allusions from famous pieces of literature. These allusions show foreshadowing, irony, and the main character, Guy Montag’s thoughts about the totalitarian government in Fahrenheit 451. Throughout Fahrenheit 451 several allusions are made to pieces of literature or to historical figures. Bradbury uses these allusions to foreshadow events in the story. “‘Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God’s grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out’” (Bradbury 65).
He needed help and seeked attention from others until one day, a “do-good” counselor called his house and got him put back into the school system. Although he was very thankful for her kindness, he could not thank her, for he knew he was going to have to drop out again to help out at home. At the age of sixteen, Myers had dropped out of school again and joined a gang. He got into all kinds of trouble, and although he didn’t like it, he continued to do bad things until his parents sent him off into the army at the age of seventeen.

The articles concept of the literary criticism of night is to give an opinion on how the book, Night was written. The overall viewpoint from the critics of the book was that it was not thoroughly written in complete detail nor did it show depth of the main character, but it was imaginative and an intriguing autobiography mixing facts with a little a bit of hallucination. Many of the authors compared Wiesel’s work to other famous authors and poets like Anne Frank and John Donne, saying that it focuses on the connections and experiences of the camp and how Elie went through a traumatizing time in his life that has changed him forever like Anne Frank did. In addition, the article explains why the novel is important in sharing the interpretation of the holocausts with many people since the novel is very popular.

horror movies can become an addictive habit, especially those of the great Stephen King. From his first novel Carrie (1974) to his most recent collection of short stories, Everything’s Eventual: Five Dark Tales (2002), King’s perspective on all things scary still strikes terror in his readers. In 1982, Playboy featured King’s article, “Why We Crave Horror Movies,” in which he explains why he feels people are drawn to horror films.
