The Night The topic I’ve chosen for this assignment was Silence. To me silence was an excellent choice for my model. Silence is a major motif throughout the book Night, silence symbolizes fear. Those who are silence are afraid to speak up assuming something tragic would happen to them and their families.
Dehumanization can help support the theme of the book, for example, at the start of the war the men are themselves but they slowly
In today's society, people have become sensitive, and from this came the dangers of censorship. Censorship is flawed, unnecessary, and immature; literature should instead be viewed with care and consideration and left untarnished. Removing offensive and inappropriate language from classic literature would show a false reality, remove important cultural and historical context, and lessen the reader's knowledge about the complexities of society, which is why it should be looked at in a more mature manner to better understand the author's intentions for the piece of literature. Firstly, the censorship of literature would present a false reality to the reader and remove important cultural and historical context. Through the analyzation of the novel
Throughout the novel, dehumanization has contributed to and resulted in large amounts of conflict. People’s positivity is stripped away leaving only negativity.

The theme of the story in my opinion is suffering, due to what happens to the characters and people in the story. First of all, liesel the main character is sufferings because of her mother
Hosseini’s use of language, sin and redemption reveal to us the foundations of moral growth. As Amir ages, he experiences and grows to understands guilt and remorse. His actions and growth allow the reader to observe a journey of discovery that involve cowardice, escapism and remorse which ultimately leads to redemption. Hosseini utilizes the language of innocence and fear in order for the reader to better understand Amir’s moral growth. The beginning of The Kite Runner accentuates the childlike consciousness of Amir.
This prominent theme of silence throughout the novel can be compared to the song “The Sound of Silence”, by Simon and Garfunkel, that heavily implies the concept of silence and discovering the world simply with the absence of sound. It also
In the book To Kill A Mockingbird, three themes are facing reality, losing hope, and the power of words. The first theme of To Kill A Mockingbird is facing reality. In the article Lynching, the men of the 20th century with courage must shed light on their disapproval of lynching people of color. In the text it says,
The Three Elixirs in Rushdie’s “Haroun and the sea of stories.” Rushdie’s “Haroun and the sea of stories” follows the structure of the hero’s journey.

The Importance of Stories in Haroun and The Sea of Stories “ What 's the use of stories, that aren 't even true?” Haroun asks his father in Chapter 1, on page 22. Stories that aren 't true are very important, especially to characters in Haroun and The Sea of stories by, Salman Rushdie. In the book, Haroun is the son to Rashid, who is a good story teller. He tells stories, that he claims he got “From the great Story Sea,” when he drinks the Story Water and he fills full of stream.
A hero is someone who saves something crucial to the life of large population of people. In Haroun and the Sea of Stories, The Hero Haroun fights off the Cultmaster Khattam-Shud and the chups in order to save the sea of stories.

A unique attribute of a hero is he or she doesn’t just fight for themself, rather they fight for something that benefits and will unite a group of people. A hero must also fail many times before he or she is able to succeed.
Writing style: Khaled Hosseini uses descriptive language rather than metaphors and similes. The use of Khaled Hosseini descriptive language creates an illusion where the reader is able to picture what the author wishes them to see, they then are able to connect with characters and grow a bond with them.

The novel itself is ruthless and alternately depressing and horrifying. Speaking volumes, it describes how God is silent.
