Prejudice is a major topic of the Harry Potter series. Lord Voldemort, the main villain, is introduced in The Sorcerer’s Stone as a wizard equivalent to Hitler, looking down on anyone who is not of a “pureblood” status. He is hostile to muggles and muggleborns because of his witch mother’s abandonment by his muggle father. The expressions "pure-blood," "half-blood," and "Muggle-born" have been coined by people to whom these distinctions matter (the upper-class purebloods) and expresses their prejudices. They treat creatures they feel inferior to themselves - the beasts, outcasts, or slaves - as second-class to human wizards.
Neither of these authors has any experience of oppressive regimes but both feel morally outraged by the Stasi and Stalin’s rule. Orwell is inspired by Stalin using the USSR.

The third person limited narrative favouring the point of view of Winston the protagonist. On the other hand, Funder who has a first-person narrative, but Funder’s text is polyvocal because she uses a lot of direct speech from her interviewees and she has narrative commentary which influences the perspective
Huck tries to interject that the point of the fable is not that Solomon chose to threaten to cut the child in half, but Jim is adamant that Solomon lacks common sense, saying that a man who would act as Solomon did “doan’ know enough to come in out’n de rain” (95). Jim then states that the fact that Solomon had so many wives, and subsequently children, was the cause of his casual attitude towards the safety of the child. He tells Huck that a man with only one or two children would be much more careful about their physical well-being, calling on his own personal experience as a loving father with only one wife. Huck marvels at Jim’s stubbornness and decides to change the
Hitler disobeyed the Treaty of Versailles, and was allowed to succeed at the Munich Conference. Although the main causes revolved around Hitler, and he caused many of the problems, the Allied nations could have stopped him in different situations. One reason the Allies started World War II, is that the countries that made up the Allied nations were focused on their own countries after World War I, and were not

Admittedly, Atticus Finch is an unrealistic character, because he is an adult who is believing in completely false statements. “Way back about nineteen-twenty there was a Klan, but it was a political organization more than anything” (147). However, Atticus is shown as a realistic character, because he has both positive and negative traits. He tries to see the best in people, and teaches his children to “climb into his skin and walk around in it”. Additionally, he also has negative traits, shown when he allows his children to be put in danger.
The author of this book, Ayn Rand faced collectivism more than once in her life. Equality 7-2521, has told us that he’s a sinner, a criminal, the bad guy.

Maycomb County, a place in which innocent children fall under the influence of their parents who are hypocrites that hide behind their facades, making it the only “normal” they have come to know. Two men, who may seem the exact opposite, really have similarities. On one side, we see Atticus Finch, an extremely wise man by nature who has solid principles and a clear sense of morality. However, we also learn about Bob Ewell, who has an evil and unadmirable nature. Nonetheless, both men may not be so different after all.
For example, in both movies, some teens are represented as arrogant, disobeying and mean. Which as we all know isn't a real stereotype for most of us. However, only The Maze Runner shows a good example of youth. They used Thomas as the good example, showing that some teens can actually be kind and intelligent. The movie Ten Things I Hate About You shows youth in a more stereotypical way because the movie constantly shows scenes where teens are either partying, making out or doing other rebellious things.
That makes this story the most horrifying. Some people suppose that the theme of this story is the narration of the Sergeant - Major Morris, "A very holy man wanted to show that fate ruled people 's lives, and that those who interfered with it did so to their sorrow." Actually, the tale has three themes which are the greed of the youth, the curiosity of the White family, and the consequences of people 's wishes. First, Jacobs expresses the avarice of young adults through the description of Herbert White. Although Mr. and Mrs. White are poor, they are old, and the things they only need are a shelter and peaceful life.
When questioned about the type of person Adnan was, many responded with “the Adnan I knew, couldn’t have done it” in reference to Hae’s murder. On the other hand, the court painted Adnan to be a possessive and controlling ex-boyfriend and even called him psychopathic. Psychopaths are individuals that posses a specific set of personality traits and behaviors. Psychopaths often appear normal and friendly to others but are self-centered, dishonest and lack empathy. Psychopaths provide a good first impression but are impulsive and very deceitful.
In The Chronicles of Narnia, one of Lewis’s more popular series, it talks about regular children finding another world inside a wardrobe, and they meet the creator of the world, Aslan. Some may say the series has nothing to do with Christianity. Again with The Screwtape Letters, It could have no meaning behind it; instead it’s just a fun story. Some people may believe he has only atheistic views only and his Christian beliefs were not existent when writing. McGrath states, “Yet the tone of his writings of the early 1920’s is unquestionably atheistic… Severely critical if not totally dismissive of religion in general and Christianity in particular” (McGrath 131).
Additionally, Fitzgerald does the same in his book. He makes the characters speak very differently based on their social class to display the differences. “To them a man who talked after this fashion was either raving drunk or raving crazy” (Fitzgerald, 298). The lower class men are taunting the upper class man for speaking in an educated manner, whereas the intellectual is treated the inferiors as superiors making it ironic. This is satirical because Fitzgerald uses situational irony to convey the maturity of the social classes.
Good Vs. Evil is one of the most controversial themes in literature, in “A Good Man is Hard to Find” by Flannery O’Connor and “Young Goodman Brown” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the authors focus on this theme to unravel the plot. In “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” O’Connor uses the Grandmother and a thief, The Misfit, to compare and contrast the good and evil in people. Hawthorne’s, “Young Goodman Brown,” uses the main character, Young Goodman Brown, and his journey from being a respected man to being summoned by the devil. Both authors use the main characters as a comparison of what being good means, but they present the evil of the story in different ways.
