“We know that men would not follow us for they never enter the Uncharted Forest” (Rand 76). Great mysteries of the “Evil Times” are at slumber in the Uncharted forest.

On page 57 it states,”Authors full of evil thoughts, lock up your typewriters,”. In this time the people living in this society don't have a choice on how they feel. They are taught to be and act joyful, which is their reason for burning books, since according to Beatty they bring sadness and fear. In addition, in the novel it states,“You can’t build a house without nails and wood. If you don’t want a house built, hide the nails and wood.
16. The thesis of the novel Into the Wild is Chris cutting off his ties to his ‘world’ as he had become disappointed with his place in society. This connects to the book Paper Towns, just like Chris, the main character Margo Spiegelman ran off into her own world, “she loved mysteries so much that she became one.” (Green, prologue 35) This quote relates to Chris McCandless and his own mysterious mind that no one will quite ever understand except himself.
I’m not saying his life was perfect, but in many peoples point of view, including myself it seems like he was privileged. Now obviously people see things differently. Maybe in his point of view he just feels the need to abandon everything and he didn’t like his life. In Chris Ingram Remove The Bus essay about Into The Wild he states “For him to sever contact with his family and loved ones and die of simple starvation is just terribly sad and selfish (Online Source).” I completely agree with Chris Ingram. I feel this way because it’s immoral to leave family behind and I think it is just plain stupid that he just went to the forest and lived by
In John Gardner’s novel Grendel the tale is portrayed from Grendel’s point of view, a villain who wreaks havoc on Hrothgar’s lands and leaves his citizens in fear. This affects the way we construe the theme of isolation in the novel which makes Grendel appear increasingly more innocent than the readers expect, and he is also victimized by the citizens, which causes him to be a recluse in society. Multiple times, Grendel attempts to conversate with the people, but he has been secluded for so many years that nobody can comprehend his words “Talking, talking, spinning a spell, pale skin of words that closes me in like a coffin. Not in a language that anyone any longer understands- Degenerate mutter of noises I send out before me wherever
Both stories deal with the idea that people are not good and more accurately are evil. The townspeople of Milford learn this just before Parson Hooper dies and he explains they are all wearing a black veil and that no one is righteous. Goodman Brown learns this first hand when he goes to the woods to make a deal with the devil, and sees who he believes to be the most righteous of the town; only to discover they are just as evil and impure as the rest of the world. "My Faith is gone!" cried he, after one stupefied moment.

As The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen defies the capital for the betterment of her people, so do many other literary figures. Some of these characters include Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Sophocles’s Antigone. Both of these characters convey the theme of rejecting society, as they rebel against society or authority to stay true to themselves. Huckleberry ignores society because he wants his independence and doesn’t want to be held back by anyone. On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city.
The relief camps left them isolated from society and deep in the wilderness. When they rebelled for better treatment at the camps in cities or towns, the government used violence against them and turned down their requests. Even when the unpopular relief camps were shut down, the government did nothing to aid them which left many roaming the streets for work. R. B. Bennett created these camps to avoid communism, however he could have done so by less harsh treatments. Canada may have been facing a harsh time which is understandable however.
The adventures of Huckleberry Finn was first introduced to the public in 1884 by Mark Twain. After going through hell trying to write the book, and its rocky release and low sales showed how controversial the book was even in his time. I believe Huck Finn should not be taught in public schools because the language used is offensive, is hard for for students to understand , and the book has been controversial since its beginning. Para 1 A High school in Philadelphia banned the book Huckleberry Finn from its curriculum due to its use of the N-word making students uncomfortable, and “the community costs of reading this book in 11th grade outweigh the literary benefits”. The N- word is used over 200 times in the book by the author Mark Twain;
Censorship of literature has always been a powerful means of manipulating society by limiting what the people are exposed to. This has been used as a way to suppress free thinking and new ideas, that could cause a shift in power in the society. The censorship of literature has been used by the powerful members of society forever, because of this societies fear the idea of their governments hiding information from the public. In Americus, a small town in Oklahoma is divided over a new teenager book series that some feel the series should be banned from the library. In contrast in Fahrenheit 451, a curious fireman indulges in a banded book, which enlightens him to a new outlook on life.
However, some audience members find the play to be too long and drawn out. At 3 hours Mary Poppins is one of the longer musicals available to high school theater, which can stretch the patience of the audience. Yet, Act 2 rewards members who didn’t leave during intermission with the three most energetic scenes of the play: let 's go fly a kite, step in time, and anything can happen. The cast entertains audience members as Mary Poppins flies in and out of scenes, kites are flown over the audience, and a disco ball transforms the auditorium into star filled heavens. A special effect unique to high school productions, flying characters across the stage required some additional expertise.
