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.
Lewis wrote some of his novels in a way to not only educate the world that selflessness will always win but also the fact that selfishness will always lose. One of Lewis’s notable works -- “Till We Have Faces” -- clearly demonstrates how selfishness loses but selflessness wins. In “Till We Have Faces” by C.S. Lewis, Lewis portrays Orual as a villain as a result of her jealous actions which not only resulted in Psyche’s exile but also Psyche being forced to complete difficult tasks in order to regain her favor; however, Orual’s actions highlight the hidden message that Lewis is trying to convey - jealous/selfish love

Another conclusion readers can draw from Thomas Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor: a Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Line, is in his chapter “More than It’s Gonna Hurt You”. Although, Foster doesn’t use any new vocabulary he does introduce a new idea about the importance and depth in violence. As well as the fact that violence always has a deeper meaning than just a brutal encounter. “Violence is one of the most personal and even intimate acts between human beings, but it can also be cultural or societal in its implications” (Foster 88).

The theme in “The Scarlet Ibis” is the duality of pride, and the idea that although some pride is good, when you let it control you, it can be devastating.
All of these things are good and can relate to things in life. I wanted the book to go against cold-heartedness, tyranny, close-mindedness, cruelty, and things that are just plain bad in the world. I also wanted to show that good always wins against corrupt ways. The bad ways of corrupt organizations, like the Gobblers who took children against their will within the book, will eventually catch up to them. Question #3: How did you come up with the world for The Golden Compass?
In Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” she uses writing skills such as symbolism and imagery to get across her different themes to the reader’s with plenty of room for self-interpretation. Though O’Connor’s work could be defined as cynical, she does an excellent job of writing in the third person with her uncomplicated structure of sentences leaving plenty of room for her character 's thoughts, feelings, and actions to get across the realism of our world.
