Swiss poet Johann Kasper Lavater said, “When pride begins, love ceases.” Pride is a dangerous road, it can either lead to danger, or it can lead to a positive life. For instance, Doodle from ‘The Scarlet Ibis” and this quote are interconnected because his older brother’s pride impacted Doodle both positively and negatively. Doodle always wanted to be around him , so he kept pushing himself which resulted in his tragic demise. Though it benefitted Doodle, it caused him to meet his untimely demise. Beknownst to the older brother, Doodle was a good brother.
Through character’s hope and perseverance in his memoir Night, Elie Wiesel conveys the theme that the love one holds for another is what fuels their will survive under strain. The Jews displacement by the Nazi’s downgraded them from their homes to filthy, plague-ridden, sewer like boxes of concrete that was Auschwitz. As a result of this many forgot their purpose to be alive. Wiesel shows that the need to survive those conditions was only supported by a sense of duty to one’s family to be there. When Stein says “Were it not for them, I would give up,”(45) he shows that their survival is the only thing keeping him upright.
Eliezer and his father share a symbiotic relationship in which they support each other through the barbarities of life in the concentration camp. Eliezer feels an obligatory commitment to his father and to stay with him. This devotion that Eliezer displays is elucidated when he rebels against the alluring draw to kill himself when the opportunity arose while evacuating Birkenua (Wiesel, 2006). He wields the burdensome onus of living as an alternative to eternal peace, ceasing to exist, by rejecting to abandon his father in the hostile atmosphere of the camp. Otherwise, in "Life is Beautiful" Guido goes to substantial measures to guarantee that Joshua does not have to bear any of the tribulations of the camp.
Since the book is about the life of Elie in a Nazi concentration camp, the circumstances were harsh and took a toll on multiple father-son relationships. You can see this with Elies reaction to his father 's death, Elie 's relationship with his father throughout the story, and other sons reactions to their fathers bad state of health. Elie’s dad dying did not have a huge toll on him. The quote, “Free at last,” (pg 112) shows that he was happy he did not have to care for his dad anymore. Furthermore, Elie also said, “I no longer thought of my dad.” (pg 113) This quote shows that the circumstances were so bad in the concentration camp that he thought of food more than his father.
Such questions arise in the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel and the graphic novel MAUS by Art Spiegelman. While no definite conclusions can be drawn, they act as guidelines in explaining why the family culture that emerges as a result of the holocaust events deters father and son relationships. The Jews all responded differently causing such uprooted father and son connections and proving that similar religious beliefs do not necessarily translate to similar decisions based on extenuating conditions. The loss of the idea of family in the extenuating conditions of Nazi concentration camps emerges as a painstakingly similar theme in both books. For example, as his father gets sicker, Elie’s previously guilt-ridden thoughts are posed as much more justified when the doctor
Throughout this part of the novel i have to admit i felt really bad for his friend Hassan because he is a really great friend of Amir but it seems to me that Amir does not truely respect and honor his friends loyalty and love for him. When the new Amir finally came into affect it really lifted my spirits and made me happy to see what kind of man my beloved Amir was turning into. He was starting to stick up for himself, he was starting to show more responsibilty for him self and others, started having more respect for himself and others, and started to not let what people had to say about him affect and play a role in his head as much as he did before his life changing journey and new sought after attitude. I am anxious to see how the new Amir develops and becomes more of a man and to see what decisions he will make and how he will handle these new situations he will soon be
… Because in his great might, He had created Auschwitz, Birkenau, Buna, and so many other factories of death…” (Wiesel, 67). Elie acknowledges that he no longer wants to believe in God because he concluded that God is the reason that the Jews are in the circumstance they are in. This is another reason individuals might think Elie is showing lack of spiritual stamina during the Holocaust because Elie begins to consider why he should believe in God when He has created such terrible things throughout the world. On the other hand, Wiesel explains, “And in spite of myself, a prayer formed inside me, a prayer to this God in
