Once the boys separated Jack and his boys whore the remains of black hats from their choir uniforms. When the book was written, British court still had the death penalty in place. When the judges decided weather the person on trial was going to be killed they whore black hats.
Normally, the scene would switch frequently. Each time the veldt was spoken about, words like death and other dark things were used to describe it. Bradbury used the metaphor, “this bake oven with murder in the heat.” By using that metaphor to describe how the veldt made the nursery feel, it helped readers to clearly understand that it was not a fun destination; it was a calmly terrifying scene that gave off awful vibes. The veldt could’ve most certainly represented the darkness that had been hiding in the family for so long.
In John Steinbeck’s novella “Of Mice and Men”, he enacts through his writing, the themes, of Violence and Dreams, Hopes and Plans. John Steinbeck relates back to those themes through Rabbits, Bunkhouse, and Lennie Small. The symbol, setting, and person chosen all represent Dreams, Hopes and Plans and Violence. Rabbits represent Dreams, Hopes and Plans because Lennie was always dreaming of raising the Rabbits.

After they caught her, they carried her down a hall, threw her in a closet and locked the door.
Not to mention “grievers,” which are robot-like monsters that are spread throughout the maze. Being aware of when the grievers come out and knowing the maze by heart are key factors in trying to find a way out. That is like learning and studying; they are required in order to be successful. Taking a big test is like running into a griever: “Thomas stared in horror at the monstrous thing making its way down the long corridor of the Maze” (Dashner
Night: The Psychology of Evil “The line between good and evil is permeable and almost anyone can be induced to cross it when pressured by situational forces,” said Philip Zimbardo after his 1971 Stanford mock trial prison experiment. Throughout the Zimbardo experiment, Zimbardo defined many terms such as dehumanization and deindividuation. Like Zimbardo, Eliezer, a young Jew from 1944 who was deported to multiple concentration camps and also wrote the novel Night, faced copious German militants who abused their power by dehumanizing their fellow humans by taking away essential items for human life such as food, drink, and freedom. Through the countless number of years that humanity has existed, victimizers who have been given power over others have chosen to abuse their fellow humans and make them victims of their rule. To study how power affects human nature, various psychological studies have been conducted to explain such behavior.
