ATTWN Essay Throughout the novel “And Then There Were None”, the roles of the philosophy, the setting, as well as the separation of the distinct social classes maintain consistent prominence in effecting the upshot of the novel. This occurs primarily by aiding Justice Wargrave in his murders, and secondarily by exonerating him from the blame of the crimes. The novel takes place in 1940s Britain, where typical philosophy was radically different that in the contemporary time. Promptly after it is clear that the killings are the work of a murderer, Mr. Justice Wargrave, Dr. Armstrong, and Vera Claythorne are acquitted of guilt, as two rank very high in the sense of social status, and the third is a “harmless” woman. However, the feeling of urgency on the island prevails, and no one is exculpated from the criminality.

Writers from all over the world use symbolism to enhance their stories and create something so beautiful in each of their pieces. In To Kill a Mockingbird and Night, symbolism was so effective because it provided depth to the text, allowed the reader to break through the surface layer of the story, and gave readers the freedom of interpreting the story in different ways. In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, the author uses symbolism in her writing to create this bittersweet novel while one of the major symbols was the mockingbird. On page 119, Harper Lee wrote, “...it's a sin to kill a mockingbird, mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.. They don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.” In this book, the mockingbird took form in two different people from opposite sides of the
Primary 5 (GEP) English Language Name: Timothy Low (12) Date: 23 March 2015 Class: 5I Extensive Reading Programme (ERP) Assignment 1 Introduction I would like to recommend the book, “Hickory Dickery Dock” by Agatha Christie. In this book, the author has skilfully weaved the mystery of small thefts into murder cases. The book is an intriguing mystery thriller and has engaged my attention with excitement and suspense from the beginning till the end. This book has the key elements of a good mystery which include plot development with unusual twists, character development, their motives and red herrings. I am kept guessing who the culprit is and his motives.
5 Noted ubiquitously among such works created by Rodolfo Anaya and Harper Lee, powerful symbolism is carried out through wonderful conveyance of literary technique in each author’s respective novels. Granted both authors can employ symbolism accordingly, each author has their signature trademark in providing symbolism, and imploring the reader to search for a deeper meaning within given context. One of Harper Lee’s most powerful symbols is simply the title of her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. The title itself has little connection to the plot, but it carries a great deal of symbolic weight in the book. One may simply look past this, but the symbol lies within the mockingbird itself.
She tackles both a subject and life of the 21st century with warmth and realism. The story has a concealed tale of sensitivity and forgiveness and yet also talks about the aftermath of the actions and decisions taken without knowledge. The book draws us in from the starting with the mystery of the letter as we all would want to know what is written inside. Once the letter was opened and the secret was revealed, the story took a much unexpected turn of events. The author has an enormous eye for detail, and nothing is wasted in the complexity of the story.
