After Montag’s house burned down montag was thinking of some of the things that were know buried under it and he couldn’t move. “A great earthquake came with the fire and leveled his house, Mildred had been buried under their somewhere and his entire life was under there somewhere” (Bradbury pg.112).

During the Great Depression in the 1930’s, bankers felt no impact, and remained oblivious to the anguish many families and individuals faced. Poorer families suffered as they were forced out of their homes, had to survive with little money, and were stripped of their property; their best means at survival was through each other. John Steinbeck illustrates in his novels the hardships the characters face during this time, but, with companionship they cope with society to their best ability, even when the possibility for failure persists. In The Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck conveys that Tom Joad and Lennie Small derive their determination and ability to survive in society from the friends around them, conveying Tom supports the lower class of society because of Jim Casy’s beliefs, while Lennie draws his strength and confidence from his unequivocal faith in his closest friend, George Milton. Tom
Elie Wiesel lived through tough times and watched his family get separated from him. He watches innocent people get killed and tortured. In the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel he uses dark imagery to create a sad and helpless tone to connect the reader with the pain he went through in the holocaust to ensure history doesn 't repeat itself. First of all as Elie first enters the camp Wiesel uses visual imagery which creates fear for Elie in the reader. He uses vivid imagery when he talks about the smoke stacks coming out of the crematory
Eventually, his attachment starts to stem from his need for a parental figure because of his negative feelings towards his parents. For instance, upon hearing the news of his parents’ death, Dunstable is relived and “mean-spiritedly pleased” over the loss, showing that, similar to Paul, he has no affection towards his parents (74). However, Dunstable does not only feel detachment towards his parents, but towards his life. Likewise, aside from his obsession with Mary, Dunstable is indifferent towards his life and the people around
Not only were the townspeople’s thoughts on Mr. Hooper changed, but also his personal thoughts were affected to the point that “he never willingly passed before a mirror… least, in its peaceful bosom, he should be affrighted by himself” (Hawthorn 395). Mr. Hooper knew that his image is frightening to some and was fearful to find that same image looking back at him. This presence he now has attached to his being lasts for years up to and after his death, where the questions of why he wore the black veil are still asked and follow his
Analysis of Holden Caulfield In United States millions are diagnosed with a mental disorder ranging from minor to damaging effects on the human mind. During my meeting with Holden Caulfield his father has provided me information on his son. In addition, from my first meeting with Holden he sounded like a man who was unstable, like he said “When you’re feeling very depressed, you can’t even think” (Caulfield, 49). These direct words from Mr. Caulfield presents me with a feeling that Holden is feeling detachment from his life and feeling worthlessness. In addition, his family looks normal, which is odd to feel depressed aside from other problems with his life.
Elie tried to help him, but he soon grew tired of helping his father and felt relieved when his father had died; he felt free. Elie would often fear the night because it reminded him of the horrible things he had seen throughout the day. The title Night implies that there was something that Elie had feared when the sun went down. If someone were to not understand what the Holocaust was, then they wouldn’t understand why he was afraid. It is important to keep on learning about the Holocaust because it was an awful event where millions of people were getting murdered because of their race and their beliefs.
Doodle’s Death “The Scarlet Ibis”, is a short story written by James Hurst, which follows two parents not caring enough for their invalid child, leading him to his death. This eminent author allows for the readers to infer, which individual is responsible for Doodle’s death. Many readers choose to believe Brother for Doodle’s death, however, that is truly not the case. Readers choose this innocent person due to the actions he takes during the end of the story but, they do not observe the subtle hints that are added by the author. All the evidence throughout the story blatantly accuses the parents for being responsible for Doodle being deceased.
This part of the poem uses the idea of going into a poems room as a symbol for looking deep into the poem to find it's true meaning. Billy Collins is trying to say that there is not any specific process you have to go through in order to understand poetry. He's saying that they are many different ways to understand poetry and different understandings of poetry, that their is no certain steps to take when understanding poetry. He is trying to explain that to understand poetry you simply have to read it. However, his poem doesn't convey his viewpoint on the understanding of poetry because I had to use the steps in Gail Hemmeter's "How to Read Poetry" to figure out what this poem meant.

With his dreams in keen sight, he holds them with such a tight grip because he knows how easy it is too loose track of the joys life brings. There are a couple instances in his life he freely opened up about when I asked him, “Have you ever thought about killing yourself”? There was a huge emotional drop in the interview when prompted this question, however the comfortability of a two-year close relationship kept it on track. It’s very sad to say but he cited many times where he felt the thoughts were too much. He said that “I never once acted on them because I’m not the coward my father was.” He didn’t enjoy the emotions following his words because he has moved past that time in his life and wants to forget about it.
’For your file,’ he said, ‘in case you decide to be angry with me.’"(Bradbury, page 71). Faber is asking to get his house burnt to a crisp, but montag decide not to turn him into his higher ups. This society scares people that break the rules so much that they turn themselves in. This society makes people feel guilty for reading books. In the real world, society does something similar to this, just with opinions and not books.
The father didn’t know how he could respond so he told him; “you wish you were dead” (Pg.55). The only thing that causes the anger of the father is that these memories might be doing some “violence to its origins. As in a party game.” (Pg.131). Wanting to forget the past by not focusing on a certain memory considering it is hurting
Throughout the book until the end, it can be seen that all sense of humanity has been lost and when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, the son has witnessed his father’s death, making this book seem like a tragedy from cover to cover but something remarkable happens there too. Even though it seems like a complete loss, something is also gained. It could possibly be a new perspective or maybe the gain of the child’s new found family who took him in, or even both. All it took was one family to come along, for the reader to sense that one spark that made you realize humanity isn’t completely lost, though it does leave you to wonder whether or not they will
Then, he spotted a sentence at the top of the exam and sank down in despair. He forgot to follow the directions and convert a certain unit, so the answers turned out wrong because they contained the wrong unit. Now a successful doctor, my dad drills me in the significance of following directions in life. For whether a person overlooks instructions because of an accidental omission or a conscious choice, it can result in death; not just academically, but physically and spiritually.
