(Gerund, provides evidence on how hard it was -ing) “The look in his eyes as they stared into mine, has never left mine” (Wiesel, 119) Going to a concentration camp being poor can truly be challenging. Beneath the poor man he was telling them information because being down in the dirt traveled on many times people don’t look at him with respect. (Prepositional phrase) But, of course, the people didn 't listen because he was poor.

Barn Burning is a modern story that shows a theme, plot, characters and uses narrative techniques. The title of the story, “Barn Burning,” is used to identify the main method carried out by the father in the story, Abner to get revenge on the people he grew angry with for their treatment of black people in the south. The story does not give a number of the barns Abner had burned, but Sarty said they had moved a lot of different times indicating the moves were due to Abner destroying the property of others. Abner seemed to have a sickness or craving for burning property; this seemed his way of regaining his dignity or self-respect after feeling he was wronged by the evil, hate, and racism of southern society. Abner kept burning fuel handy and had containers to refill when it was time to burn another barn and caused destruction, but when it was time to keep his family warm in the cold outdoors, he would only build small fires.
The society will not accept that she seduced a black man, her feeling of guilt motivated her to remove him out of her way "I got something to say and then I ain 't gonna say no more. That nigger yonder took advantage of me and if you fine fancy gentlemen don 't want do nothing about it then you 're all yellow stinking cowards, stinking cowards, and the lot of you. Your fancy airs don 't come to nothing and Miss Mayellering don 't come to nothing, Mr. Finch”. ( Lee 167). This is another kind of racism between man and woman, she does not have the right to dream, to love, to learn, there is always someone that thinks for her and tells her what she should and should not do.
Once we reach the end of the story, Sarty has finally realized that his father is a “ruthless” and “bloodless” man. (Byrne) Abner is on his way to burn down de Spain’s barn and Sarty knows he has to warn him. His family decides to hold on to him to not let him go but Sarty breaks free and runs down the road to tell de Spain what his father intends on doing. This is the moment when Sarty changed dramatically in the story.
Even Crooks, Lennie, and Candy– a crippled “nigger”, a “dum-dum” and a “lousy ol’ sheep” – refuse to talk to her, suggesting that being a merely being a woman is the worst kind of ‘disability’. Steinbeck uses this hierarchal disparity to illustrate the injustice of sexism. Steinbeck further protests this injustice when Curley’s wife reveals she has a “dream”, yet is too “lonely” to tell anyone else. She has “nobody” to share her thoughts and feelings with because of her sex. Her death represents the futility of trying to overcome sexist prejudice – she dies trying to confide her loneliness in Lennie – and Steinbeck uses this fact to emphasise the extent to which sexism defines her life.
Elie discusses his journey to Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, along with the sight of flames he saw from the crematorium at his arrival. Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel recited, “Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, that turned my life into one long night seven times sealed” (Wiesel 34). From that night on, he knew his life was permanently altered and there was nothing he could do about it. During the second hanging Elie witnessed three victims being hanged, one of them being a young pipel. After those hangings he stated, “That night, the soup tasted of corpses” (Wiesel 65).
In the novel Night, the word night contained great significance and has very deep meaning. Elie’s memory of everything in this time period is dark and tragic. It is called Night to show what he felt like during this whole time period, and it felt like one long, painful night to him. Night represents the pain, fear, death, and darkness from Elie’s past. “We stared at the flames in the darkness.
During the Buchenwald raid Elie leaves his father behind and flees for shelter not taking into consideration that there is a possibility that his father could die. Elie says in an unruly manner “I had no that he was on the road, on the brink of death, and yet I abandoned him” (101) this proves Elie has opened his eyes to the reality and started to fend for himself putting his faith aside. In another circumstance, on the verge of dying Chlomo shouted to Elie to get him a drop of coffee and some soup but Elie stated to himself. His last words was my name, a summon in which I did not respond.” (106) this gives the illusion that we see a change in Elie character, he is not the same loving son he was in the beginning, he has set aside his faith in order for him to survive.
He gave him water, his rations, and carried him throughout the camp even while he wanted to lay down like the other old men from the camp. Elie knew that all those men would get burned and killed because they were of no use to the Germans anymore. In conclusion there are several accounts in the novel Night by Elie Weizel where his faith in religion is tested. When he is separated from his family at the arrival of Auschwitz, When he and another turn against their fathers from the traumatization of the camp itself, and when his father is dying near the end of
No matter what anyone says... don 't let 'em get your goat.” (Lee,76) In this quote Atticus is saying even though people make fun of you deal with it in a mature way. Therefore, Jews and blacks both did not have respect, and treated none equal. Therefore the book Night and To Kill a Mockingbird are both the same because Jews and Blacks were stripped of their rights, experienced evil, and had no respect.
Faithful Where there is death there is destruction, where there is smoke there is night. In Night by Elie Wiesel Eliezer is forced to endure beatings, selections that will determine if he will be alive the next day, separation from his family, and starvation. Eliezer is a young Jewish boy interested in learning kabala, but when he and his family are taken into Nazi captivity, they are forced to defile places of worship and desecrate their faith. It leaves them asking how this could happen to them? Throughout the story, Eliezer looks for someone or something to believe in because he starts to lose faith in God and he tries to use his dad as a remedy.
Throughout Night, by Elie Wiesel, the narrator, Wiesel, was subjected to changes within his ideals and religious beliefs. When Wiesel was first introduced to the book, he was a devout Jewish boy who loved his father and had his total faith in God. Over time, Wiesel began to change as a result of being beaten down almost every day and witnessing his fellow Jews being worked to death or simply killed for not being fit enough. "I watched it all happening without moving. I kept silent.
Elie Wiesel was one of the many unfortunate souls who were sent to Auschwitz, a well known concentration camp. He spent many painful years watching people get shot, or die of starvation; seeing people get sent to gas chambers for no reason. After he escaped, he turned bitter, and cruel. He later wrote the book Night. Elie Wiesel stated boldly, “The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference.”
