Because Connie became vulnerable, she was easily persuaded by Arnold, who was portrayed as the Devil figure and the darkness that exists, to leave her the known safety of her home and to embark on the road to the unclear future. Oates’s story teaches the readers to be cautious of their surroundings and of the people that are unfamiliar to them that live in the same society.

In the book “So You`ve been Publicly Shamed”, or rather the chapters I have read, John Ronson tries to understand the causes of public shame through the chosen victims` experience. The author tries to find out how their lives were shaping up, and how they found the strength to live on. He shows that any offense, any unsuccessful phrase becomes a subject of public discussion and condemnation. Also, a person becomes an outcast without the right to rehabilitation. It was clearly shown in the story between the journalist Michael C. Moynihan, and the American writer Jonah Lehrer.
Many governments use censorship to protect their citizens, however, a censorship concealing the truth and hindering individuality is harmful and impedes society progression as demonstrated in Fahrenheit 451. The negative impacts of government oppression and the literary devices of irony, realism, allusion, conflict, and symbolism Ray Bradbury used to develop the theme of censorship in Fahrenheit 451 will be discussed below using America as the reflection of the broader society. In Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury used irony to portray several methods the authority has executed to oppress information and control the population. A government may employ various methods of censoring media contents from banning the use of such media to making the media content disappear completely from the face of the earth which amounts to societal oppression with regards to information access (Harrison 59). In Fahrenheit 451, to ensure certain information has been completely eliminated, the authority used the method of censoring books; the government employed
To summarize, Edgar Allan Poe’s stories illustrate how fear alters the character's mind and what the product is of such fear. Poe illustrates this through symbolism, irony, and imagery. Fear can be helpful by causing people to be cautious of their actions. However, people can also start to worry too much and become paranoid.

Humans were born with two fears; fear of falling, and fear of loud noises. According to the Oxford dictionary, fear is "an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm", but this definition is only one of many to define the term of 'fear '.

"I am world trapped in a person." I did not like reading until I came across a novel called The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Tartt shows the dangers of romanticising people and the past. She creates this ideology that no matter how good, everybody is bad. Tartt uses her characters to portray how literature does not shy away from the truth.
People put on mask whenever revealing their genuine identity or behavior can cause issues. They are afraid of the aftermath that their actions might cause. This is the situation one can see in The Canterbury Tales, Piers Plowman, and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight prologues. All of these literary works present different valuable societal issues. First in The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer gives us a description of characters and their flaws.
the representation of the past in Beloved and the future in Denver. Such a…different plot like this one can very easily overshadow the message but the last couple of sections in the book of each character really put it into perspective. At one point, the line “A complaint from Beloved, an apology from Sethe” stands as a teeter-totter affect as we read more and more examples of how Beloved is altering herself into a position where Sethe is taken advantage of.
