The theme of running tumps geology and physics as it operates in the book’s title, the characters, political aspects, setting, and giving the story a meaningful aspect and an exciting way to root for the protagonist, Jean Patrick. Running, geology, and physics successfully operate in “Running the Rift” as they depict the novel’s characters, political aspects, setting, and meaning. Although running is the most profound all of the themes serve important detail and thought to the reader. The themes are all vital to creatively telling the story of the Rwandan genocide. They allow the reader to grasp a deeper understanding of the people of Rwanda, through Jean Patrick's running and thoughts.

Cruelty exists in many forms, just as it has a multitude of affects on different people and characters. In both The Poisonwood Bible by Barbra Kingslover and Macbeth by William Shakespeare, the nature, will, and personalities of the characters are put to the test in response to cruelty. As demonstrated in both of these novels, cruelty can shape a character by revealing the true nature of the victim and bringing guilt upon the perpetrator, which proves that cruelty is the driving force in character development. In The Poisonwood Bible, Nathan Price brings his family to the Congo on a conversion mission, and it quickly becomes obvious that he cares more about the mission than his own family. In this way, Nathan is an example of a perpetrator of cruelty; for example, when the Price’s first arrive in Kilanga, the village people are in the middle of a celebration when Nathan begins to put them to shame and scorn their lifestyle and rituals.

Everyone perceives power differently. Some might say, power is the ability to control others, others might say, power is when you can influence others around you and such. The book Marked by Steve Ross and Animal Farm by George Orwell perfectly portray power in a unique, interesting way that will change your perspective about power.

In Marked, power is represented mostly through the graphics of the novel and camera angles, while in Animal Farm, power is represented through the use of language.
1. Introduction In this thesis, I argue that many of the creatures described in some medieval bestiaries play a very important role in the creation of the imaginary and symbolic world of Harry Potter written by the author J. K. Rowling. In the following paragraphs I will discuss the similarities and differences between the medieval beasts and the creatures in Rowling’s Harry Potter book series. I also explain how the author plays with symbolism and uses her novels to highlight how medieval and modern ideas take part of the relationship between humans and animals, using symbolic animals to expose the real nature of the characters, their personalities. To go into detail about this theory, I have worked with the seven books of the Harry Potter
However, the main emphasis is put to the similarities and differences between these two stories in the setting from a fictional point of view. The conflict of good and evil is a hot topic in writing and is available in the stories "Young Goodman Brown,” by Nathaniel Hawthorne and "The Rocking-Horse Winner" by Lawrence.
