The harsh nature of city life is represented through the teasing wind and Lutie Johnson’s fight against it. In the beginning of the passage, the wind on 116th street goes through “[rattling] the tops of garbage cans” and flapping window shades.

This can also be found in the title of the novel as it symbolizes death, loss of faith and hope. Additionally, as previously stated, the worst suffering seems to occur at night. For example, the narrative contains many last nights: the last night in Sighet, the last night in Buna, the last night with his father and many more. Night also symbolizes a world without God. Wiesel contends that God does not live in the concentration camps and God's people have no recourse.
Year 12 Term 1: Gaps and Silences: Macbeth Overcast skies forewarned of the storm to come. The ominous and looming clouds rumbled treason, wolves howled their distress and rough winds wreaked havoc on the brittle branches of the oak trees in Birnam Wood, but not even this could compare to the turmoil in the Queen’s mind. In her chambers, Lady Macbeth’s frantic, bloodshot eyes darted across the room, searching for the ghost that had haunted her for an eternity. Lady Macbeth had borne many sleepless nights after the appearance of the ghost of King Duncan, his happy and nonchalant demeanour being the root of her suffering. She would have been able to endure an angry or hateful spirit, but the honourable manner and grace in which he held himself
Once Equality found the word “I” he vowed never to speak “we” again, unless it was his own choice, thus praising individuality. “For the word ‘We’ must never be spoken, save by one’s choice and as a second thought.” (Rand 96). Equality wept when he found “I” because he pitied those who did not know the word. “I wept in deliverance and in pity for all mankind.” (Rand 98). Equality wept because the people in the old society did not know that there was a word for themselves, not we, but I. Nextly, Equality abhorred the old society’s rules.
Another reason that the confederate was banned is because people thought it was a rebellious flag. They thought the confederate flag was banned because they found it offensive. because the government didn’t like it because they thought it was a rebel banner and didn’t want it to start anything with anyone else so they banned it so there was no problem with anyone else or anything else. Also because people want it to be back up because some people don’t like it down or banned. Another reason they outlawed the flag is because it wasn’t showing any respect for people that fought in a war and got no respect for people that died.
‘’The Monsters Due On Maple Street’’:This is the dimension of imagination.It is an area which we all call the a Twilight Zone. Fade in on a shot of the night sky.The various nebulae and plant bodies stand out and sharp,sparkling relief. And the camera begins a slow pan across the Heavens.”Boom”, the power goes out on the whole Maple Street.

“If we must die, let it not be like hogs / Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot, / While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs, / Making their mock at our accursèd lot.” (Mckay, 1-4) Claude Mckay uses an ABAB rhyme pattern in this poem. In Acquainted with the Night by Robert Frost, also uses an ABAB rhyme pattern. For example “I have been one acquainted with the night. / I have walked out in rain—and back in rain. / I have outwalked the furthest city light.” (Frost,
The drought made things worst and the environment was horrible to live in. People couldn’t even touch each other without getting shocked. It was hard to keep the dirt away.“The simplest acts of life — breathing, eating a meal, taking a walk — were no longer simple.”("About The Dust Bowl")This sentence proves that it was hard to live with dirt everywhere it was even harder to keep it away. Another quote that proves my topic is ¨Children wore dust masks to and from school, women hung wet sheets over windows in a futile attempt to stop the dirt.”("About The Dust
It was now getting very late and going on midnight. Andrew turned off the lights in our room we hopped into our beds in the dark of room and the light coming from the flickering shots of lightning going through the sky. The rain was hitting the roof so hard i could not even hear myself breathing.

There was no one outside but one man in the alleyway across the street standing in the rain holding an object which looked to be a long knife like object.
