Although there was the time needed for the parents to mourn the death of their child, they were not promised any. Within the same day of their sons death, they had events and tasks that needed their attention. Life waits for no one and has a pace of its own. The humming sound adds to their disturbing theme of the call, when life calls you just have to answer. The baker calls and repeat the name of the recently deceased child “Scotty”.
The protagonist Holden Caulfield is liberated from his warped personality and finally begins to realize his aversion of the grown-up life that change is inevitable and always accompanied by a sense of loss. Not accepting the changes in the surroundings and his actions makes him immature and not a trusted narrator. Avoiding issues by not facing them in the first place makes him being followed by disappointment constantly. For instance, in the beginning of the book Caulfield mentions his own opinion on leaving places and we know that when he was thirteen years old his little brother died. Instead of repairing the wounds and flesh he moves on like nothing happened the entire book until we find him in the psychiatric hospital as an entire breakdown.
The trouble was I’d been finding that door my own self because I got scared of being lost so long and went to hollering so they could track me” (Kesey 132). As readers have seen in the past, the fog is known to hinder Bromden’s ability to remember events from the past. On page 130, it is evident that when Bromden finally gains an understanding of the fog machine’s purpose, he is able to remember a huge part of his early life that he had forgotten about while undergoing treatment by Nurse Ratched. A few pages later, the analogous shift in Bromden’s confidence is seen with the lack of fog, as he finally realizes that he is capable of resisting the
If he were living normally, he would most likely become bored and depressed. In a letter to his brother, McCandless writes, “I know that I could not bear the routine and humdrum of the life that you are forced to lead. I don’t think I could ever settle down. I have known too much of the depths of live already, and I would prefer anything to an anticlimax” (Krakauer 87). This means that McCandless would rather live an exciting life and would hate to live a normal one.

Family; a blessing, or a curse? In the book Night, Elie Wiesel offers many significant themes, but the question, “is family a blessing or a curse,” is one of the most prevalent and begging themes in the novel. During the novel, Wiesel often questions if he should try and keep his father around, or if life would just be better without him in the picture. “‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111).
And for the first time I realized that a man was behind each one of the books."

Clarisse McClellan helped Montag the person he was and without her to walk with him, he feels that the streets are empty. Ray Bradbury illustrates Montag’s life without Clarisse using diction, illustrative imagery, and strong
Candy is an interesting person when u discus the topic of dreams, I say this because in the beginning of the book to almost the end I don’t think candy has a dream. He is old and he is missing a hand so I think that he thinks that as soon as he can’t sweep the bins clean anymore the ranch will fire him and he won’t have any place to go and in the middle of the book it kind of sounds like he has accepted that future. But towards the end of the novel he hears about George and Lennies dream and he ends up getting in a quote for this is: “George let me come to that ranch with you I have 450 dollars that you can have right now and besides when I die I don’t got no family to give it to so I will just give my share of the place to you”, so then getting to that ranch with George and Lennie is his New

As we plow through this were constantly worrying, realizing that no one deserves to endure this pain. Whatever it is that takes your life, hoping that it’s a peaceful painless way, is right around the corner “Then it was all dark, and his white crib and the dim faces that moved above him, and the warm sweet aroma of the milk, faded out altogether from his mind” (Fitzgerald, 2010, P. 205).
After two years of not being in communication with Victor, Justin writes to Victor saying, “You have been ill, and even the constant letters of dear kind Henry are not sufficient to reassure me on your account. You are forbidden to write-to hold a pen; yet one word from you, dear Victor, is necessary to calm our apprehensions” (50). Whilst working on his creation, Victor has completely disregarded his family and has his friend write letters to them ensuring that he is well. His family has become uneasy over him, though he seems not to care as he is so greatly involved in his creation. After Victor’s life collapses, he still continues to preach the pursuit of
