On the other hand their similarities connects them closer. It refers to the popular "literary pairs" or "fictional duos". The comic foil, the earnest aide, sidekick following the "hero" is a model of character that has been widely repeated in literature over the years. Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Gatsby and Nick, and Holmes and Watson tackle all certain adventures or issues with the inseparable treasured companion.
When I first began reading Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, I thought that it would be the same story as other dystopian pieces of literature; however, after further analyzing the novel I found that Bradbury used many allusions from famous pieces of literature. These allusions show foreshadowing, irony, and the main character, Guy Montag’s thoughts about the totalitarian government in Fahrenheit 451. Throughout Fahrenheit 451 several allusions are made to pieces of literature or to historical figures. Bradbury uses these allusions to foreshadow events in the story. “‘Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God’s grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out’” (Bradbury 65).

Washington's decision to march to Yorktown and cut off Lord Cornwallis by land, while the French cut them off by sea, was made based off of the intelligence gathered by his many spies, and thus ended the
The plot, the setting, the characters were all wonderful, but the three things that caught my attention were the accuracy of events, heart-racing events, and the plot. Throughout the book, events during the jail or courthouse were described very detailed and produced a clear image in my head. The author must have done lots of prior research in order to get information about these events that most commoners do not know. The fire, rape, fights were described in a manner that allowed me to truly experience and understand what it was like in the character’s shoes. The plot went through many situations from jail cells all the way to getting confidential information from the Pentagon.
Robert Townsend was one of the many famous spies.

Both the film and the novel incorporate Holmes as the judgemental, observational, and intelligent detective, while Stapleton is the cunning, evil villain. the novel, there are more main characters, such as Laura Lyons, who plays an important role in the case. It states, "Mrs. Laura Lyons of Coombe Tracey had written to Sir Charles Baskerville and made an appointment with him at that very place and hour he met to his death.” In contrast, the film has less main characters. Therefore, both have a suspenseful mood, but the novel has a more suspicious mood while the film has a more dramatic mood. The director chooses to remove some characters to dramatically focus on less suspects of the case.

Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible, is seen as a true piece of American Literature that presents itself at the core of McCarthyism in the bitter wake of Communists spies inside the United States. In many cases the main character of Abigail Williams is considered secondary to that of John Proctor. However, many years later, Miller writes a screenplay for the 1996 film adaptation starring Hollywood heavyweights like Winona Ryder; whose portrayal seems to allow the character of Abigail to have more room to expand. It is to my opinion that the author does this to present a more rapid and truthful motif that differs from that of the 1950 ‘witch hunt’ for communists. It is shown in the differing aspects of Abigail’s character from play to screen,
The purpose of this essay is to investigate the Modernism in English literature especially in The Translator (a novel written by Leila Aboulela).
