The syntax in The Scarlet Letter mimics the previously mentioned dark yet romantic and descriptive tone of the novel. Maintaining its seriousness and formality, Hawthorne uses additions such as imagery, personification, metaphor, and symbolism to keep the book’s underlying flowery and romantic storyline. This complex writing style required Hawthorne to utilize very long and illustrative sentence structure. His dedication to detail is seen in his use of comparison to portray both beauty and ugliness. In fact, the only time we see short and choppy sentences is character dialogue and conversation.
Nihilism in Grendel Although John Gardner’s novel Grendel simply is a recount of Beowulf’s antagonistic monster going about his life and interacting with different people and creatures, it explores many profound themes such as nihilism. As the story progresses, Grendel has a series of realizations about and encounters with nihilism that greatly shape his way of thinking and view of the world. He progresses from a simple, easily satisfied creature, to a cynical and pessimistic monster. The effect of nihilism is evident as the protagonist interacts with different characters in the book. The first instance where the reader can spot Grendel registering the ideas of nihilism and how he feels about them, is when he comes across “The Shaper;” a man who sings tales about historical battles and events, and therefore shapes them and how they are perceived by the rest.

Violence in literature reflects reality while offering a productive and secure place to explore difficult questions. The Secret Life of Bees is an astonishing and endearing novel about prejudice, appreciation, and acceptance of a young girl named Lily and her nanny during the early 60's Civil Rights era.

Frankenstein is a book filled with puzzling hidden connections that can relate to what majority of us go through in American society today. Quotes throughout the novel create a piece of inspiration that we can look up to when discovering similar times. The diction revels pros and cons on how Starting off the novel At the trial for Justine Moritz, Elisabeth states vindication by saying “It may therefore be judged indecent in me to come forward on this occasion, but when I see a fellow creature about to perish through the cowardice of her pretended friends, I wish to be allowed to speak, that I may say what I know of her character.” She shows her friendship and support to Justine by touching the court with her moving words.

My ardour for Literature grew when I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Both novels are similar and revolve around self-discovery. As a reader, it makes me feel like outlaw reading novels about knowledge and reading being a crime. In Huxley 's Brave New World, those who accept the new world lose their humanity. Bradbury shows how the lack of books can give the government too much power.
I believe chapter two exemplified the best arguments and theories relayed in the whole book. Milligan’s description of the “wildcat wave” and the interviewee accounts of the disastrous strikes that occurred in that time bring out the harsh realities of the sixties; the stories told by the people who were there illustrate in human terms how important labour was to the average young worker. This chapter demonstrates the power of youth when they are divided in assigned work roles, which made for both a fascinating and enlightening read; I wished that the book had shed more light on these topics to further capture the essence and spirit of these critically important labour
However, it would not be so eye-catching without its end pages that serve to make the comic book even more realistic. The chapter called “The abyss gazes also” is very dark and it lays special emphasis on Rorschach in order to show that he is an ordinary human being with a difficult past. Also, the way end pages use a lot of information readers are familiar with and the style in which end pages are presented to readers bear an underlying goal to bring comic book world closer to our
War changes its participants forever, no matter their role they have, a damage has and will be done. All the participants of a war are to blame for the aftermath. Although the experiences of a character from a fictional novel such as Lord of the Flies by William Golding, and a real-life American soldier giving a testimony in Rory Kennedy’s “The ghosts of Abu Ghraib” documentary, seem incomparable, they are not. When side by side their similarities become more evident, as they both share similar themes. The personality of an individual depends on the society that has educated him/her.
