In The Shining one similarity in comparison to Long Day’s Journey into Night is the fact that both families have an inability to communicate. Danny is able to partly understand what is happening with his family, but fails to ever ask to talk to them about what he is suffering from. Just as Wendy and Jack both know about Danny’s intelligence and abilities, but have never discussed it or acknowledged them. The son also was first to even say the word divorce out loud in reference to his parents, even though Wendy and Jack both were considering it seriously, but they never spoke about to each other about it. While the Torrance family has a lack of conversations about topics, the Tyrone family always is conversing or arguing about something.

The similarities in Night and Schindler’s list are very obvious but one theme comes out in particular. Many people try not to realize what's true when they don’t want to when they see how fallacious it is. In the first few pages of Night by Elie Wiesel a boy discovers the horrors that are happening in Germany to the Jews and tries to warn others what is coming, ”Some even insinuated that he only wanted their pity, that he was imagining things. Others flatly said that he had gone mad.”(P.7 Elie Wiesel).

If you have an older or younger sibling then you might understand what it feels like when people say that you look alike. Just because you look the same doesn’t mean you are the same. One of you might like a different sport or activity then the other, or one of you might have darker hair or different color eyes.

Edgar Allan Poe is using the primitive scary scenes that we are fearful to. “And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it --oh so gently!” they say that midnight is the witching hour when “every supernatural creature takes life and comes out of the dark”. “I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening, and the old man sprang up in bed, crying out --"Who's there?
