Wiesel uses a lot of very detailed descriptions and expresses his feelings in a way that we easily start to trust him. He knows that this is one of the most terrible periods in the history and he tries “to help prevent history from repeating itself” (Wiesel VII). “He does not want his past to become [the children’s] future” and that is why he writes his book to be seen by the people who do not realize how poorly people were treated (Wiesel XV). These two quotes from Night show that the holocaust shouldn’t be repeated. The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses.
“The search is over, Montag is dead; a crime against society has been avenged.” (Bradbury 142). In the end, the government couldn’t find Montag, but because everyone was watching the search for him on their TV’s, the government killed an innocent man pretending it was Montag. The society was glad Montag was dead, even though it wasn 't really him. In the book death happens frequently, and it 's enjoyable to them. Violence in the book is a warning because in the future, violence could have a huge impact on our life.

Dr.Hitz, Leora Duncan, and the father of the newborn children are killed, with the painter creating an amazing mural willing to be killed after seeing all the deaths unfold. This leads to the question, is the world really worth sacrificing yourself for others?
Impact of Edgar Allan Poe on American Culture “Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality” (Edgar Allan Poe).

Not only was all of his enemies whom he had killed previously were now living again, his brother Hades (The king of the underworld) was now complaining of the rareness of new arrivals.

“A good war story is not simply about blood and death. It examines war as a transformation in the lives of those affected.” Comment on this statement, making close reference to David Malouf’s Fly Away Peter. War is a subject that fascinates us all in many ways; our reasoning is usually out of pure curiosity as most of us have never been, although we know that war is hell on earth. Know one wants to read or watch a war story filled with blood and death, what a miserable way to spend your time, but it is just a fact about war that can not be ignored. Human transformation is what really appeals to us; it fuels our knowledge about things we do not understand fully, just like Jim Saddler does in “Fly Away Peter”, he chooses to go to war because he has a similar curious drive that motivates him.
When Macduff comes back he finds out of his family 's death and joins Malcolm and his army to defeat Macbeth. Macbeth states that he is not born from a woman like the witches said in one of the prophecies rather he is ripped out of her mother 's womb. Macduff made a decision to do the right thing which was to fight for his country and for Malcolm to be king. Macbeth’s decision to murder changed his whole way of life negatively.

The mass suicide in Jonestown is easily one of the most infamous events in modern history. The saying “Drink the Kool-Aid” is from this event and still used to this day.

I believe they do not understand what being in a group can cause and what some would do just because of being in that group.
