Perseverance is an important theme in A Long Walk To Water. The first example of Perseverance is when Salva listens to what his uncle says. His uncle uses his full name, and Salva thinks of his family. Uncle tells him to only walk as far as that bush, or clump of rocks. Salva perseveres by thinking of his family. By thinking of his family, Salva is able to keep walking even though he’s tired, thirsty, hungry, and his feet hurt. The second example of Perseverance is when Salva is in the refugee camp. He hates the refugee camp and wants to get out of there. “I only need to get through the rest of this day, he told himself. This day and no other.” (pg 73) This shows that Salva is persevering because even though he hates the refugee camp, he

The graphic book Maus is written by Art Spiegelmen and is a powerful book filled with the themes of survival and racism. Maus is not just an overview of the causes and events leading up to the Holocaust, but is a true portrayal of a couple’s personal experience of trust and betrayal, separation and reunion, starvation and torture, and most importantly survival. One event that takes place in the book which definitely shows these themes is when the book eventually reaches the year 1943 and Vladek and his wife Anja are trying to survive during the holocaust when people are being sent to Aushwitz and Jewish searches take place.

As a student, I have faced so many incoming obstacles in my life, that it is natural for myself. One of the bigger challenges that I have recently faced was almost getting cut by the Junior Varsity Tennis Team. This happened to me last year and I can remember it like it was yesterday.

If the setting did change the whole storyline would be different. The reason behind why the setting is so important is because all of the differences, which include; culture, time period, and location.
Family is one of the themes displayed in this story. From the beginning of the novel, Vladek is seen enjoying his wife and the birth of his son. His wife, who is experiencing post-partum depression, takes a visit with Vladek to the sanitarium to help her recover. However, during the journey he tries to hide away the Nazi party from his wife to leave her with no worries by saying “The sanitarium was far away from everything-so peaceful, so quiet” (Spiegelman 36).

Luckily, he becomes a prisoner of war (POW) and is “protected a little as a Polish war prisoner” (Spiegelman 39). Vladek returns home and sees the loss of his factory.
