What if life contributed to no meaning and the only point which matters is the existence happening during the present? To make things worse, as humans live, they breath, but as they die a salvation is received to their soul, and their existence is over. The Stranger by Albert Camus illustrates that the human soul exists in the world physically, therefore the presence or absence does not contribute to any particular event in life. Through, this thought the novel introduces Meursault, who alienates himself from society. He lacks concern for social conventions and is deprived of the physical bounding from people around him.

The most crucial part to any book is how it ends, in the case of the novel Brave New World it was a disappointment in the fact that nothing in society has been resolved. Aldous Huxley wrote about Bernard Marx and John the most throughout the book and there end was the opposite of what was had hoped for them. In the final chapter both characters went separate ways, Bernard was preparing to leave the World State and go to Falklands with Helmholtz. As for John he left readers feeling glum that he decided to commit suicide after realizing that he needed to be purified from the sins of coming to the World State instead of staying on the Indian Reserve. These characters both had a similar mindset when it came to how they preserved society.
The persona makes no remarks of sentiment despite it being their home, but instead sounds more of an observer, or rather, an outsider. In addition, the words “[w]ho would live in a country town [i]f they had their wish” echoes the personas sentiments. There is a sense of disdain towards the township in this, which eventually progresses into frustration in the third stanza. There is a notable line break in “[m]any around me sleep // [b]ut not I” which evidently separates the persona from the townspeople.

On the other hand, John Kessel, a writer, thinks the book is about making the readers feel bad for the main character Enderx.

In a work of literary genius full of sarcasm and satire, Voltaire expresses his disapproval towards the Old Regime in a condemnatory yet playful tone during a period referred to as the Enlightenment. Voltaire's Candide presents seditious contemplation of the dimensions of social hierarchy. The most ubiquitous argument bestowed in this novel is Voltaire's rejection of the tyranny the church displayed through religious intolerance.

In his now world-renowned novel, Voltaire articulates his powerful opposition to religious sectarianism, assists in implementing these revolutionary ideas into the minds of the oppressed,
When somebody sent here, there's no... (Huxley 89)".she is stopped by John's expression of distress and nonchalantly asks, "Why, whatever is the matter (Huxley 89)."This shows the disregard for the respect of death in the brave new world and how it is overtaken by materialistic things for the good of society.

In Jonathan Hunt’s review of the novel for Heavy Medal, he states that since the story is written from the perspective of the first protagonist, Little Hawk, it “engenders empathy for the disappearing indigenous people and their culture.

Going back to the previous point the next message in the book is the importance of communication, or to be more precise, the lack of communication. In this book, the letters start as lengthy and full of life, and as the book goes on and the communication decreases the letters are shorter and people become unhappy.

When one shortens their communication with people, it can lead to loneliness and avoidance of actual human interaction. In the book, when the tiles were falling and letters were being discarded, it caused a communication gap.
