When unpleasant things happen in the world, people often get too wrapped up in themselves that they forget the problems others endure. This occurs in both of the books Night and The Book Thief. During both novels, the authors use tone and dialogue to emphasize how the struggles of others can be overlooked by selfishness. In The Book Thief, Zusak portrays this problem through Ilsa Hermann and Liesel as the Hubermann family gets fired. Not knowing how to respond politely, Liesel lashes out at the mayor’s wife and exclaims, “While you sit here in your mansion?
It is also when Liesel steals her first book, which will be one of the main themes of the film. I enjoyed the film because I was fascinated with the characters and how they found strength, courage and friendship in difficult circumstances. I also found this film to be very powerful and thought provoking, as it challenged our pre-conceptions of Germany during World War II, Death and on humanity itself. When Liesel reaches Molching, she feels lonely and misses her
As the book continues, Jem has to read to Mrs Dubose after school several days a week as a punishment for destroying her flowers. Mrs Dubose is very sick, and the night that she died she gave Atticus a box to give to Jem. Inside the box was a white camellia. Scout narrates, “Jem opened the box, Inside, surrounded by wads of damn cotton was a white, waxy, perfect camellia” (Lee 111).
For instance, Cathy Ames was one of the character who standed out in the novel, which made the audience aware of who she was and is a big comparison to other characters throughout the book. Adam told Charles that him and Cathy got married. Which makes Cathy leave to the bedroom and closing the door. Charles say negative things about Cathy “She’s no damn good, I tell you.
What she means by “Sing you a lullaby where you die at the end” is she is going to poison and kill her kidnapper and break free from ‘The Big Bad Wolf’. The repetition is a sign of confirmation and empowerment that she is going to do what she says. The reader or listener has the sense of standing up for yourself is a good thing and not always for a good or bad reason. She also makes allusions to fairy tales and tales we knew as children. “Ashes, ashes, time to go down” makes a reference to the children's playground game “Ring around the rosies” signaling to the black plague, darkening the sense of death by showing that not everything is sweet and innocent, including death.

Promptly and critically, we come to the observation that Mrs. Mallard’s views about death are too overwhelming for her because of the fact that she has a severe heart condition. In the Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin, we can see a sense of sorrow yet joy, between Mrs. Mallard’s continuous reflections about life. Through a closer look at Kate Chopin’s use of diction and imagery we first believe that Mrs. Mallard’s husband’s (Brently Mallard) sudden appearance is the only cause of her heart failure which leads to her death. This continues to develop and leads us to understand that Mrs. Mallard leaves her room because Josephine (Mrs. Mallard’s sister) convinces her to walk downstairs. Once she walks down the stairs, she becomes overwhelmed with emotions because she witnesses her husband is in fact alive and standing at the door; these events lead to Mrs. Mallard’s heart failure and overall death.
Evil and Immorality The reason why God slashed the length of humankind life is due their sins. For example, the story states that men married women howsoever they chose. Furthermore, the story says that the Lord discovered that evil filled the hearts of men, and the evil was great and perpetual.
The house they go to is an old woman’s who has been hiding books. The lady felt life was not worth living without having the knowledge of literature, so she chooses to go up in flames along with all of her books.

Montague didn’t show up for work one day, so Captain Beatty pays him a visit letting him know that at some point all firefighters become curious about the point behind their daily job.

The purpose of literature is to move the reader. Some authors turn to laughter or tears to make the most significant impact. In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a biography by Rebecca Skloot, Skloot uses a pathos appeal to incite the reader to pity characters in the book, such as Deborah and Elsie Lacks. As Rebecca Skloot and Deborah go looking for information on Elsie, Deborah’s sister, they go to the Hospital for the Negro Insane.
When Douglass moves to Baltimore he is thrilled to see that his Mistress Sophia Auld is a kind woman.

The Book Thief, written by Markus Zusak, is about Liesel Meminger, a young girl from Germany who faces the inevitable pains of growing up in a time of war, Holocaust and Nazism. The story is told in the first-person point. It is a view of Death as he narrates. “The Book Thief” has a great deal of tragedy in it but it also is a celebration of life. In fact, it’s full of opposites.
