Bradbury additionally indicates that fear can be seen in literature found throughout the book. At last, the author expresses the importance that fear can be seen when the thought of trying new things comes to mind. To begin, the motif of fear, or lack thereof, demonstrates an adverse impact on the disastrous dystopian society through the characters false sense of security. This idea can be detected throughout the beginning of the book at the time when most of the society, including Clarisse, thought everything was normal. “Did it always use to be that way?” (Bradbury 27).
The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father. The tone and mood enhance the text by adding detail and facts.
One of the most important elements of a story, whether it’s a Shakespeare play, a science- fiction or a Harlem renaissance story, is the use of characters. Authors use their characters to help assist them in getting their message across the reader. In her short story “Spunk” Zora Neale Hurston uses her characters to help develop the plot line while also showing how dramatic a character can change. With the help of the community members, Joe finally stands up to Spunk, (the towns strong man.) Through this ordeal, Spunk is forever changed for this is the moment that caused him to open up something that fear would take control over.

Montag grows to learn to stand up for his beliefs from Clarisse, the book lady, and the hobos in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. First, Clarisse teaches Montag to stand up for his beliefs by doing it herself. This is proven when Bradbury writes, “I’m antisocial they say… It’s so strange. I’m very social indeed” (Bradbury 24). Clarisse refused to believe what society told her she was; instead, she stood up for her beliefs insisting that she was actually extremely social.
When citizens discover the child in the basement, they realize that there are more flaws in the structure of Omelas than they originally thought. Le Guin takes this a step further when she “reinterprets [the essential truths] to reflect our contemporary world” (Rochelle). The major flaw is that there are problems that remain unaddressed, simply because one fails to think about them. Le Guin uses Omelas as a warning to readers, imploring that they search for the flaws in their own society. As a result, the reader is forced to see the flaws of Omelas’ social and political structure.

Why are light and dark references so prominent in The Scarlet Letter? Many quotes from the book allude to a light or dark reference for the main characters. The light and dark we see in each character is critical to the book because the references show how they are developing. This is an important theme because the light and dark references are noticeable in our own lives, and change how we live day to day as well. Light and dark imagery, alluding to the larger conflict between good and evil, is present throughout the novel in the characters of Roger Chillingworth, Pearl and Hester Prynne.
Mildred is against the fact that books can help and opposes the idea when her husband tries to read to her. Montag tries to get his point across, but someone or something is in the way. He argues, “Why doesn’t someone want to talk about it! Is it because we’re having so much fun at
People have experiences on a day-to-day basis, some small, some large, but they all shape who they are, and in turn affect their values for the good or for the bad. They are best shown through literature, since it allows for realistic life experiences to be created in fictitious worlds. Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Judith Ortiz Cofer’s “Abuela Invent the Zero” both demonstrate the protagonist developing more appropriate values from important life experiences. In each of these classic stories, the main characters, Tom and Constancia, both have life experiences that shape them to cherish new things and value ideas that cause them to become more suitable, and rational people. Tom Sawyer, the protagonist of The Adventures of Tom
Lois Lowry once said, “Submitting to censorship is to enter the… world where choice has been taken away and reality distorted. And that is the most dangerous world of all.” This quote perfectly explains the major theme of Fahrenheit 451, which is censorship. Due to the use of censorship by the government, people in this society are unable to form their own opinions, make their own choices, and are forced to live with distorted realities of the world they actually live in. One example of censorship in the book is what can be seen on the parlour walls. This is explained through the quote, “... Tv parlour?...
