It represents the darkest hardest time in his life. As he arrives to the camp he considered ending it all because in his eyes he was going to die there anyways, he says “ Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed....Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never." (32).
Night Archetypes In the novel Night, by Elie Wiesel, he encounters countless losses during the Holocaust leading to unhealable wounds. Wiesel states, “[His] eyes had opened and [he] was alone, terribly alone in a world without God, without man” (Wiesel 68), as many tragic events occurred.

Wiesel states, “Since [his] father’s death, nothing mattered to [him] anymore” (Wiesel 113).
But regardless of Phil the groundhog, for Phil Connors the journalist, pretentious, arrogant and ‘blasé’, the coverage of this annoying event, year after year, is a true torment. All that matters to him is to finish his reporting of the Grounhog Day’s ceremony and go home... when a severe winter blizzard nails it on the spot and forces him to spend the night grounded in Pittsburg. The next morning wakes to his dismay to the same Groundhog Day of the day before. It finishes in the same storm.

To emphasize, Charlie ran away from home since he knew that he was going to die. “Thats why 1m going away from New York for good. I dont want to do nothing like that agen.” (Keyes 21). A few weeks after the operations, Charlie knew that his brain was shrinking because he started to do research on Algernon who had received the same operations. Over time, Charlie started to lose his knowledge and he became depressed.
“I don’t want to be like my father.” It’s a sentence that leaks out of the mouth a living contradiction, a weeping mountain, a broken hero. His face reeks of guilt, his breath of alcohol. It’s been days since I’d seen him last, his disappearances were becoming routinely tragic and hopelessly imminent. Except today was different, because today was Christmas. Numerous calls the night before ended with the mocking sound of his voicemail.
Gregor is taken into a deep state of depression, and he misses the s freedom Heidegger would call superficial he used to have. Kafka describes Gregor’s vison ,of the Charlotte street as a gray sky and gray earth being almost indistinguishably fused, implying that Gregor can no longer see the difference between his happiness and sadness. Gregor is no longer able to relate to the outside world due to his isolation for the past month, causing him severe loneness. The window he looks out of represents all Gregor has left of his fading connection with the outside world. The life he had before his transformation and the life he cannot go back to.
Imagine walking to the point where you can feel nothing in your legs, you feel like you're going to collapse every step you take.

When I first arrived in this dreaded place I came with my best friend Ronnie. I have so many good memories with him back

This piece of figurative language has a big impact on the text because it is pretty much saying that the moments that happened in the camp made him lose that connection with his god, soul and made him feel like his dreams were never going to happen cause he was just sitting in that camp doing labor for several months. This affects the reader cause this shows more of how the camp really
The father had killed a poacher, two years before, and since then had been gloomy and behaved as though haunted by a memory. His two sons were married and lived with him. "The darkness was profound. I could see nothing before me nor around me and the mass of overhanging interlacing trees rubbed together, filling the night with an incessant whispering. Finally I saw a light and soon my companion was knocking upon a door.
