In this part of the book, Paul and his friends are out on the front re-wiring the front line with new barbed and communication wires when they hear the shrill cries of injured and badly wounded horses. Additionally, during the bombing, one of their soldiers becomes badly wounded in his leg and will most likely die or never be able to walk again. There is a similarity between this young soldier and the injured horses, made apparent by the comparison the author makes between the two. The young soldier, while human, is helpless after getting injured and will likely die if he is not helped soon. In the case of the horses, they too are at risk of dying if they are not medically attended to quickly. The difference between the
“You can’t win if you wip us. You’ll still be where you were before- at the bottom. And we’ll still be the lucky ones with all the breaks. So it doesn’t do any good, the fighting and the killing. It doesn’t prove a thing. We’ll forget it if you win, or if you don’t. Greasers will still be greasers and Socs will still be Socs.”
“‘Foward! March.’ My father was crying. It was the first time I saw him cry. I had never thought it was possible” (Weisel 19).
This quote shows that even in this time where they live in a life where they are being manipulated, Winston is still living in a time where he is experiencing hatred, but still maintains what keeps him normal or humane, which keeps him separated from everyone else. This hate is showing that people still have hate for each other and still want to kill each other but it also shows the true human he is by helping her when she was threatened. (82 words)
The two themes are control and technology. The reason control fits the book is it’s about a government confining the people.

Mahatma Gandhi is a symbol of achieving change through peaceful methods.
In 1948, Mahmoud Darwish was six years old when his interrupted childhood brutally confronted exile. Thousands of Palestinians were forced to exile due to the systematic occupation by the Israelis. For Darwish, severance from the homeland gave birth to his poetry, and commenced a love affair with location and dislocation. Throughout Mahmoud Darwish 's poetics is the linkage of individuals or occupied entities to the ideal of a universal struggle for freedom and liberty from oppression, and a link to the beauty of life and language through the creative process, thus affirming Wellek and Warren 's notion that: "the work of literature is an aesthetic object, capable of arousing aesthetic experience." (1984: 241). And it was Darwish 's creative work and precise language that transcended his experience not only as a Palestinian writer, but also as a writer who aroused the universal, while managing the aesthetic transmission of the oppressive side of the human condition under occupation. In his prosaic memoir, Memory for Forgetfulness, Darwish writes in hauntingly surrealist manner:
The very first page of this book we are presented with a letter from Alex, who is obviously leaving home. The letter I believed was a really cool way to give us the background of the story we needed to know on a personal level. This was our first look at Alex. He seems excited to be out in the Alaskan bush. Not too many people would be excited about that. Right away I’m interested in this character and his motives.

Theme 1.1: Envy. In Knowles’s coming of age book, “A Separate Peace”, there are lots of mishaps that happen and the beginning of these mishaps is when one of his main characters, Gene, starts thinking malicious things about Phineas, his friend. It started out as a small inkling of envy, suddenly later on in the book, it turned into something that resembled a fractious disaster. As the chapters progress, Gene shows the readers his way of thinking towards Phineas, by describing his “unexpected excitement” (27) when Phineas was about to receive a scolding from Mr. Patch-Wither, the substitute headmaster of Devon during the summer session. Surprisingly, when Phineas (aka Finny) further explained why he wore the school tie as a belt, his illogical
The faint buzzing of an old street light in the distance was the only sound that filled the air. The loud dogs that paced yellow lawns and fenced in porches were deep asleep. It was as melancholy as it could get. My hand trembled, I looked down at the paper weapon clasped between my fingers. I lifted my hand and pressed the cold cigarette to my chapped lips, long ago accepting the fact that I 'd never remember the taste of his mouth, in the same way I didn 't remember the last time my life wasn 't anything more than a huge fucking shit show. With my other hand I clicked the lighter to life. The hot flickering flame danced in front of my watery ocean blue eyes, which were long dulled by all the loss and pain they 've been through. My eyes fell
the boat instead of sleeping in the cabin since the weather was so nice. “I made my permanent bed on the port bunk with lee cloth tied by two lines to the rail above on the ceiling stretching the length and forming a sort of cradle that stopped me from falling out as the boat tossed around. I arranged a sleeping bag inside the cradle for maximum comfort and I’d bundle up in this cocoon with Dinghy, as Varuna rocked us to sleep.” Tania would often dream about different foods that she craved causing her to wake and be salivating. Even though she did miss certain foods like ice cream, chicken and salads, she did not feel the need to go back to land. She really did enjoy being out on the water, she felt as if she could sail the world happily forever.
Mohandas Gandhi is one of the greatest nonviolent activists ever. Gandhi came up with the word ahimsa, which meant nonviolence. He also introduced to the world the word satyagraha, which meant peaceful civil disobedience. In 1930 Gandhi and a group of followers began a march of more than 200 miles. Three and a half weeks later they made it to their destination, the sea. At the sea, Gandhi picked up a handful of salt. This act went against the British law mandating that they buy salt from their government and this law did not allow them to collect their own salt. That act was made to let the British government know that the Indian people were tired of being under Britain’s rule and they were tired of following all of the unjust laws that were
The glass never spoke to me, but it told me who I was, and although it didn’t breathe, I could feel its presence. I’d known it for years; see it every morning before heading out the door, never looking too long, but always checking. As you get older the glances get longer, you stop and look closely at the illusionary face that’s supposed to be you, but begins to appear less and less like you every day. Then it starts to lie to you. You spend more time gazing at it. The more and more time I spent staring into it every day, the more I started to dread seeing it. What it saw me do, what I knew it saw me do, and its retelling of what I did the next time I glared into it became obscene to me. It was my own special purgatory, and I was tired of seeing my life repeated before me every day. So I decided to stop looking altogether.
The poem “Dystopia None Too Distant” by Surrationally exemplifies a disastrous post-apocalyptic world. This poem demonstrates the hardships people go through in their world; consequently, people reminisce on life as they knew it before. Furthermore, the author uses repetition in his work to emphasize the fact that they lost what they had: “We sort of remember warmth./We sort of remember laughing./ We sort of remember nostalgia,” (Surrationally). By using repetition the author establishes an important point. The people try to remember what they used to have and keep the memories from their world before the apocalypse. In addition to repetition, the author showcases a feeling of loss that the people are going through: “Drugs
