Mairs herself doesn’t fully comprehend why she decided on this title, but she believes that she wants others to see her as a “tough customer”. A person who “fates/gods/viruses have not been kind”, yet still can accept the brutal truth.

What Arendt did do was open a massive divide between two versions of a painful past: a monstrosity or a normality. Arendt’s critics wanted Eichmann to be the clearest verdict of evil that history has put on record. Arendt disputed not that he was evil, but rather the nature and consequence of such evil. Arendt casts Eichmann into a theory of evil and a narrative of history which, to many of her counterparts, is not only outrageous but perhaps terrifying.
In the book Cinder, the author expresses the theme that bravery is how you decide to face the worst, through her word choice, and dark and desperate tone. Her powerful words contribute not only to how you view the protagonist and Peony’s lives, but also to how they decide to face the cruel world around them. Although the word choice shows that they both have a hard life, they’re constantly fighting the pain, to get over it, which relates back to the theme. Both word choice and tone had a great influence in how readers decide to view the characters, and the lives that they are leading. While reading this book, it seemed that word choice played a really big part, as to how you view Cinder as a person.

These stories can be contradictory in this aspect. In ¨All American Slurp¨ the girl wants friends but she doesn't know how to fit in, but in Raymond's Run Squeaky is capable of making friends but isn't kind to people. The other reason why she doesn't have friends is because she has to take care of Raymond. Raymond can be a handful because he is disabled. Another reason why she doesn’t have friends is because if
After that statement she stated this, “Now I wouldn’t be bored / Now I would know too much / Now I would know,” showing that at the end she regretted her wish to no longer be bored. After the poem showing us how bored she was, the author at the end showed a conflict of no longer being bored. Even though she stated, “I could hardly wait to get / the hell out of there to / anywhere else,” the author shows these signs of regret at the end of the poem once she is no longer getting bored.
Social isolation can lead to feelings of loneliness, fear of others, or negative self esteem. Lack of consistent human contact can also cause conflict with the (peripheral) friends the socially isolated person may occasionally talk to or cause problems with family members. Isolation is often seen to bring out the worst out an individual, however in Anne Frank’s case, it brought about the best out of her character since she had all the time in the world to reproduce her flair for writing in the emotional confused situation she was in.

But behind that insane personality she has, she is a friend that you can rely on; she understands your silence and accepts your weaknesses. She’s a sympathetic girl that always feel bad whenever she saw someone crying, she imagine herself that she is in the place of that person.
