Later on in The Order of the Phoenix, the sorting hat gives the school a warning against the houses being divided in “this troubled time”.

Every time the children talk about the Jack-in-the-box, it is grey days. The children are making stories about the Jack-in-the-box and his personality, such as him being an evil wizard or that his box is a Pandora’s box and that Jack is there as a guardian to prevent all the bad things from coming out (page 72, lines 3-8). Notwithstanding of the fact that the children have never seen him (the Jack-in-the-box), they still make these stories about him. The whole idea about the children making all these stories up contributes to the fact that one of the themes is childhood. Since they are children, they do not know how to describe it correctly, so they use their creativity to explain it to the best of their

This proves his hunger for power so well because there is no other reason to take off her leg except to have power over her. He is not going to use it, he is not going to sell it, the one and only reason why he would steal her leg is to have complete control over her. Another example of power-hunger taking over someone’s emotions is in “The Veldt”, when George decides to shut off the nursery, the enchanting room his kids love so much.

She also causes him to exercise his rebellious thoughts by joining him in his confrontation and entrance into the “Brotherhood.”  They are always paranoid and thinking that they are being watched or being listened to. Winston is always talking about he and Julia will eventually be captured and vaporized.

The concept of home and what it means to each character can be seen as important plot points within both pieces of literature.
