Just as left-behind fingerprints can be used to find people, Neal Shusterman leaves behind literary “fingerprints” in his novels, such as allusion, so that the reader can identify his writing. For example, he alludes the well-known movie, The Wizard of Oz. On page six of Full Tilt, Blake mentions that he “still can’t watch that movie without getting a sick feeling in [his] stomach, like it’s [his] own house spinning inside of a tornado.” This is used to explain that Blake feels like his family and home has become a chaotic mess.
Despite this book being nonfiction, it is clear that Bradley looks to create suspense and engage the audience using short sentence structure and anecdotes about his father and the other five men. For example, in chapter 5, page 20, Bradley writes, “December 1944. The last Christmas for too many young boys. Then off for the forty-day sail to Iwo Jima.”

He appears to be trivial, pitiful, pointles and even pathetic character. Presenting Edward II’s character, Christopher Marlowe tried a new style of character portrayal and he definetely succeeded in it. In the first part of the play Edward II is a consistent character, but in the last part his character begins to change, so ambiguity of his character is notable to the readers. King Edward II showed his assertive personality since the beggining of the play when he went against his peers and barons in order to have his minion Gaveston back at court. He made a huge mistake because he shamelessly showed favouritism and he ignored the barons.

My ardour for Literature grew when I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Both novels are similar and revolve around self-discovery. As a reader, it makes me feel like outlaw reading novels about knowledge and reading being a crime. In Huxley 's Brave New World, those who accept the new world lose their humanity. Bradbury shows how the lack of books can give the government too much power.

The letter contained vital information about the escape plan, such as when Juliet would awaken and that she was not dead, just under a sleeping potion.
Robert Louis Stevenson has been coined the title of a literary genius for his work, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Put shortly Jekyll and Hyde, is a story about a man investigating the secrets of a second man, who is in fact two different men living two different personas. Though the story is indeed short enough to read within a few passing hours, it is long enough to force the reader to question their own duality. Is man truly one? Or is each man composed of two separate halves, the good, and the evil?
Thus, in William Shakespeare’s classic play Macbeth, the author suggests that an individual’s identity is often an illusion voiced by crippling desire and the influence of others. As creators of turmoil by nature, the witches catalyze changes in Macbeth that enable his transformation from a righteous military general into a committed megalomaniac. Furthermore, they inspire the awakening of Macbeth’s ambition and fool him by providing a false sense of security. This exploitation is expected from the dark and sinister creatures as they firmly believe that “Fair is foul, and foul is fair.” (Shakespeare, trans. 2012, 1.1.12).
