In other words, The Davis’s aim for writing this book is twofold. First, she felt that the film had not been faithful to the true story, and so she researched further to seek the truth. Second, she wanted to make “a historical sense of it” (Davis viii) in order to approve how the new approach of history is effective to unfold the hidden secrets. As a matter of fact, Davis, in her book “The Return of Martin Guerre” approaches the story by using this method. Basically, she banks on two resources as a way of ground to portray her approach; combing a legal text and a literary tale into a valuable book.
Edith Wharton stated once that at some stage in a story there will be that turning point or “illuminating incident” that would be a window that opens to convey the whole message and show the deeper meaning of the work. Basing this on Pride and Prejudice, the most significant, shifting point would be when Elizabeth realizes that her first impression has done her wrong, and that she’s the one being prejudicial, not Mr. Darcy. Jane Austen follows the development of Elizabeth’s and Darcy’s relationship in how they both change in order to overcome their own vanities and be able to love each other. Elizabeth’s visit to Pemberley, accompanied by her aunt and uncle, causes her to reconsider her thoughts about Mr. Darcy and shows how naïve and inconsiderate she was. After knowing the truth, Elizabeth’s reaction help build up the main themes of Pride and Prejudice which is to learn before making any judgments.

This could easily be proven by quoting what his sister, Carine, states about him in chapter seven. “Her son, the teenage Tolstoyan, believed that wealth was shameful, corrupting, inherently evil..”. This clearly shows that if McCandless did not appreciate wealth then the fact of people basing their happiness on wealth would discomfort him as well. Another example which sets the point a bit more clear would be when Krakauer states “ they didn’t flaunt their modest wealth, but they bought nice clothes, some jewelry for Billie, a Cadillac. Eventually, they purchased the townhouse on the bay and the sailboat.
That is the main reason why Edward and Sandra got married. He thought she was a stunning girl and had to get to know her through all the challenges. As said in the book, “Sandra didn't intend to be as beautiful as she was. It wasn't her desire to be loved by so many men-one would do fine” (page 77). Even thought she could have been snobby about her looks, and no one would have blamed her if she was.
Shakespeare filed confusion with gender throughout the entirety of the play. In the same way, he precedented social class to be viewed correspondingly. Viola was in love with Orsino, surely, but not because of his social stature. She loved him for who he was and did not wish to be with him purely to change her social class. Viola was originally born into a high-class family but decided to pose as a servant despite “what my estate is” (1.2.43-46).

In this play, he has created a marriage that promotes respect towards women. Traditionally, women are not treated as equals in their society, but Sophocles believes otherwise and expresses his opinion through his plays. Sophocles presents that the marriage between Oedipus and Jocasta is respectable and equal. When Oedipus was going through a difficult time, Jocasta became aware of this and wanted nothing else but to help Oedipus find what he was looking for. Oedipus, who is in search of the truth regarding his birth, is questioning Jocasta, looking for answers.
“The Dead,” written by James Joyce center around an upper-class individual name Gabriel Conroy. Right from the start, Joyce didn’t hold back on how he wanted to portrayed Conroy’s character in a negative way. Conroy’s brief conversation with his aunt maid show how clumsy he is. “O, then, said Gabriel gaily, I suppose we 'll be going to your wedding one of these fine days with your young man, eh?” (Page 2)
The above passage from Pride and Prejudice depicts a major turning point in the novel. This passage follows Mr. Darcy’s marriage proposal to Elizabeth. Before this passage, Mr. Darcy proposes to Elizabeth and then follows by explaining to her all the reasons he tried to stop himself from falling for, claiming that Elizabeth’s low social class would degrade his own social standing and the problem with her family were reasons he tried to resist his feelings for her, which emphasizes the theme of social class because it shows how social class means something different for everyone and is more important to some people than to others. What Mr. Darcy says to Elizabeth before the passage above illustrates a justification to Elizabeth’s anger towards Mr. Darcy and is a reason Elizabeth was so angry and frustrated towards Mr. Darcy in this passage, compared to when she rejected Mr. Collin’s marriage proposal.

They are descended on the maternal side, from the same noble line;”. Lady Catherine’s metaphor demonstrated that she thinks Elizabeth is too poor to marry Mr Darcy.
In order to keep the citizens under psychological control, loyalty can only belong to Big Brother. Every thought or action will be for Big Brother and no one else, if loyalty between two spouses were allowed to develop, then the Party would no longer be able to control the motivations behind their actions as they would act for each other instead of just Big Brother. Additionally, the repressed sexual frustration of the Party members creates an intense loyalty towards Big Brother. To illustrate, Julia knew, “. . . sexual privation induced hysteria, which was desirable because it could be transformed into war-fever and leader-worship” (Orwell 139).
