Freudians Colour Symbolism In The Night Circus “Everything is a symbol of something, it seems, until proven otherwise.” -Thomas C. Foster. Symbols express ideas and emotions through an indirect approach, any individual can view a symbol and interpret it in their own way. It is a more personal form of expression in literature.

They lied and manipulated the court into believing their stories. They did this for lots of reasons. One was because females were not allowed many rights let alone any power in their city. Through the witch trials and lies they gained power in Salem. Also, they were trying to win over lovers by accusing their wives and getting them hung.
“As Meursault pulled the trigger, he could feel the heat from his cheek from the sandy bright beach.” In The Stranger, the author Albert Camus uses different methods of mood and atmosphere in the novel which heightened the understanding of the novel and contributed to the descriptive patterns of the book. From the heat symbolism that creates a certain atmosphere in the book, to the specific mood he portrays in the novel.This all goes into the pattern that Camus blatantly put in the book to show a specific mood and to add an atmosphere to the novel. To start off, when Meursault states in the book that he feels a certain way for example heat or temperature it gives way to the descriptive patterns and symbolism, for example, to quote from the novel itself, Meursault says...“ I was able to understand Maman better. Evenings in that part of the country must have been a kind of sad relief. But today, with the sun bearing down, making the whole landscape shimmer with heat, it was inhumane and oppressive” (Camus 15).
The White Witch and Hitler The white Witch and Hitler had many differences and similarities. In my opinion these are the most important. Similarly both they were deceivers they tricked and cheated many people to carry out their mischievous schemes.

Readers may feel as if they are on a pendulum between admiring the Duke’s actions and despising him for all the mess he creates. The Duke is one of the distinctive characters in this play because he appears almost in every scene, undetectably gets to the bottom of the secrets of others with the mere intention of having it all brought to order. Everything that happens in this play is an outcome of his own desires, his lies and twist of truth resulting in ordinary people being offered a false view of their world. A.P. Rossiter argues that what one makes of the ending… depends on what one makes of the Duke.
The specialty of investigation all alone rejects the basic simple clarifications yet rather bargains in the mind boggling actualities. In spite of the fact that Iago is the regular disturbance and accordingly the conspicuous awful person, his fate is to make the disaster that this play later moves toward becoming. A protracted thought notwithstanding a receptive outlook will demonstrate the reality of the situation. Othello is the real miscreant. Despite the fact that he at first does not have any vindictive considerations and thoughts, he in the long run becomes a murderer due to emotionally untrustworthy and jealousy.

Now since this has happened we learned that witches do not exist and later in the book it says that some of the accusers lied and now there is a law that makes sure that everyone has a fair trial.

Many people were put to death because of these

Agatha Christie examines the psychology of the island’s guests, as each deteriorates under the pressure of guilt and grave danger. At first, the guests hide their guilt not only from others but also from themselves. This is possible because their crimes are perceived as accidental and unintentional; a number are also passive-aggressive. Vera Claythorne, General MacArthur, Mr. Blore, Emily Brent, Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, and Philip Lombard all deny any active agency in the deaths they are said to have caused. Instead, each could be said to have betrayed a trust by failing to act.
