Literary Analysis Essay- The Pear Tree In the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, the pear tree is a major symbol for Janie and her growth throughout the book. Throughout the whole story, the pear tree keeps returning for Janie, in person and in her mind.

Pointers to Insight I found this short synopsis of Soko Morinaga’s journey a very compelling piece of literature. His main theme being that everyone should live a fulfilling life full of happiness and contentedness is a theme that everyone can agree with. Another theme that can be seen is the idea of a student and sensei being able to trust and respect each other’s capabilities and hold them accountable accordingly.

Morinaga goes on to explain his reaction of losing his wealth, land, and family after the war leading him to severe depression.
In Emily Brontё’s Wuthering Heights, the spiritual reassessment and moral reconciliation that the characters develop over the course of the novel demonstrates that those who are willing to accept and embrace change will be able to grow and mature as individuals and will ultimately achieve peace with themselves. To begin, the proposed marriage between Catherine Heathcliff and Hareton Earnshaw demonstrates that only those who put aside the prejudices that they hold towards others will be able to achieve personal growth and happiness.

The feeling of making someone’s day and observing the bright smile on their face definitely makes me happy. Also with my experience, doing things I want to do is what makes me happy. I find happiness in running, getting away from the world for an hour, being able to clear my mind and just focus on the nature around me makes me happy. There are activities for everyone out there, no matter who you are to make you happy; you just have to get out and find them.
