Theme Analysis of Renée Ahdieh’s Flame in the Mist “She’d fought off her assailant. And in doing so, she’d displayed one of the seven virtues of bushidō: Courage.” (Ahdieh 38) The fantasy novel Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh dives deep into a world of mystery, war, love, deception, and especially courage.

Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature. Ultimately, the central purpose of an author’s novel is to engross the reader, by writing in a genre and movement that is appropriate the book. Appropriately, Kurt Dinan engages the reader with both a Mystery genre and Postmodernist elements in his novel, Don’t Get Caught. Postmodernists believe that traditional authority is false and corrupt, and the central theme of Don’t Get Caught is that the powerful students play pranks and humiliate the less influential students. There exists a social elite club known as the Chaos Club that plays pranks on the school and faculty, and nobody can figure out the leader of the club is or who the members’ are.

Love is a very powerful emotion that Simmie expresses through her writing. Love can influence your behaviours; such as travelling great distances to be with someone such as Polly, or turn your thoughts irrational and drive you to commit murder, feeling as though it is your only option, in the manner of John
one observer described her as she walked to her death.” This quote also illustrates the theme of man’s inhumanity to man due to the fact that Sophie was about to be executed just for trying to reveal the truth to her brainwashed society. Clearly, the idea of man’s inhumanity towards other man is clearly present in these two texts and is obviously a major concern to us
Furthermore, Mr. Rochester’s passion draws insecurity for thinking about the mad woman he keeps hidden away, yet Brontё implies Jane being the shining light to a new passion. Jane provides Mr. Rochester with the security of a well balanced future as his passion conflicts “the oath shall be kept” (Brontё 296). Nevertheless, Brontё illustrates how Mr. Rochester’s passion transfers from the embarrassment of Bertha to the proclamation of devotion to Jane. The passion for Bertha differentiates that for Jane, as Mr. Rochester hides Bertha from the public, but he flaunts his infatuation with Jane. Renewal of Mr. Rochester’s passion extracts from Brontё metaphorically “depicts Jane throwing the waters of baptism-- spiritual rebirth-- upon Rochester” (Lamonaca 4).
Summary In the article “Flowers: Woman who goaded boyfriend to commit suicide must pay for dark act,” Christine Flowers argues in favor of Michelle Carter being held accountable for the death of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III. Flowers offers two reasons as to why Michelle Carter should be found guilty of involuntary manslaughter: She “actively encouraged” him to kill himself knowing that her boyfriend was emotionally unstable and confined in her and told him to “get back in” after he got out of the car filled with carbon monoxide seeking her guidance (3). Furthermore, Flowers presents counterarguments that seek Carter should not do time in prison: for example, Flowers claims that the reason Conrad Roy ultimately killed himself was because her words “get back in”, were “the proximate cause of his death” (3). In the end, Flowers concludes by saying Michelle Carter should “pay for her dark act,
Another example of Opie’s radical ideas can be found in her representation of the intellectual and, more controversially, sexual rivalry between Mrs Mowbray and Adeline, stimulated by Sir Patrick’s interest in both women albeit for different reasons, is a radical idea on multiple levels. This depiction destroys the myth of the house as a haven sanctified by a loving marriage which complicates the glowing recommendation of marriage that Opie puts forward. Opie seems to suggest that just like in education, so in marriage, to be carried away by affection and lack of practicality and perception of the truth can only lead to disaster. Another radical idea that relates to the central theme of the novel as put forward by Eleanor Ty who in Empowering the Feminine finds in this novel “the love story not between Adeline and her lover Frederic Glenmurray, but between Adeline and her mother” (148). Such a reading thoroughly marginalises the male presence in the novel and points towards the importance of the mother daughter theme.
O’Connor’s trait of violence is used throughout to reveal the corrupt and criminal world that emanates the need for salvation. The violence that we do not get to see for ourselves are the crimes the Misfit committed before the story began. The story begins with the grandmother telling Bailey to “read here what it says he did to these people’” (O’Connor 575). These crimes are violent murders that the Misfit committed beforehand. This displays the criminal world that we live in.
