In the novel Scout is confused and ignorant by Walter Cunningham, Jr. Walter Cunningham, Sr. and the Ewell family. She must learn so much to overcome her ignorance and confusion of others.
The Canadian Encyclopedia states “The experience was traumatic for many Aboriginal children, who were removed from their families and subjected to harsh discipline, the devaluation of their culture and religion, and even physical and sexual abuse” which shows how the culture of aboriginal has weakened, making many Aboriginals to question their self identity as they don’t understand where they came from and the roots their families were molded from. Many First Nation children felt distressed due to the isolation and loneliness when at these school. One example being, Chanie Wenjack, a student who ran away from a residential school as he missed his family and he later died due to starvation and the cold. This was the first death the government impacted on. The Canadian Encyclopedia reports that “students were isolated and their culture disparaged, removed from their homes and parents separated from their siblings” which is important to Canadian history as it leads to the greater percentage of depression in Aboriginal communities today.
Throughout Canadian history there has been a battle for equality, whether it be equality for gender, age and race. In the novel In Search of April Raintree, by Beatrice Mosionier, the protagonist April faces many hardships, especially with her race. Although Mosionier’s novel is fiction, events she writes about strongly correlate with tragic events that have occurred throughout Canadian history and even present day. Despite being set back in the late eighties, the racial discrimination April faces still exists in today’s world. Racism is an issue that seems to have no resolution although the solution seems simple.
She also knows who is responsible for this, Canadian politicians, and she wants them to be punished. Her repeated mentioning of the RCMP, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, in relation to the internment and the implementation of restrictions (Kogawa 97- 130) reiterates the notion of the awareness that the government does not thunk of Japanese Canadians as equals. Another aspect the novel emphasises is the separation of families. The reader follows Naomi, Stephen, Uncle Sam and Obasan to the ghost town of Slocan City. They are now separated from Aunt Emily, Naomi 's father and their grandparents.
This era is unusual due to it’s overlapping of both the Romantic and Realism Era. Due to its coexistence in two eras, this division serves as a platform for authors to attempt to establish a new literary culture aside from the rest of the world. Encompassing the Transcendental Era are the beliefs of ideality, establishment of a utopia, skepticism of religion, and the arrival of knowledge through intuition. The reader can see a demonstration of these beliefs in the short story To Build a Fire. In this story, London depicts

This story ¨The Veldt¨ shows disobedience in many ways. Disobedience means failure or refusal to obey rules or someone in authority.

As the story goes on the parents decide that the house is too much for the family and want to move out. In the end the kids end up having no more parents do to the kids actions.
This shows that both the main characters have experience with immigration. Another way that the texts are similar is through tone. In “The Red Umbrella,” Lucy’s parents send her away, but breaking the news creates a depressed, hurt tone that shows how some immigration can be hurtful at times. In “A ‘Band-Aid’ for 800 Children,” Sandigo must feel bad for the children who lost their parents through illegal immigration, which creates an underlying tone of sadness. The final technique used in both texts is figurative language.

Ha’s and other refugees’ lives turn “inside out” as they become a teacher for their loved ones and a punching bag for their classmates, but gradually turns “back again” with the help of their community. Refugees are treated like two different people when it comes to living at home and school. “They both have to endure the “push-and-pull” forces of home and school, which often work in opposite directions,” (Fantino and Colak, 9). This shows that refugees lives turn “inside out” as they become greatly depended on at home and then thrown like a piece of trash at school. In the book Inside Out and Back Again, Lai writes “Brother Quang, who becomes translator for all,” (Lai, 97).
