In Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank, characters show loyalty as they care for their friends and the dead. In Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, characters loyally arrive at the side of and protect Ender. Characters exemplify brotherhood when they are loyal in their interactions with the community and each other.

Atticus shows that true courage requires standing up for what is right, no matter the circumstances and no matter the consequences. Throughout the novel, Atticus retains the same basic characteristics and core values. His ideas challenge the existing traditions of Maycomb, and his actions prompt real change in the city.

Things like; death, family, freedom, choices, unity, and doing things for the good of man. In his speech he relates these things directly to war. They can also be related to people not involved in a war. Why I think it is so important is because everyday citizen can take these same
Unavoidable fate is a theme in many works of literature. The constriction of fate must have given Antigone a sense of hopelessness. Although, the notion may also have provided some comfort for Antigone in knowing that she could not have changed what was to happen.
