“We were all talking about the space between us all and the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion. Never glimpse the truth – then it’s far too late when they pass away” quoted George Harrison, an English guitarist and songwriter. He meant that some people cannot handle reality, they need a way to escape and be what or who they want.

And the only time people regret having that space is when their loved ones are gone; then they realize that they had something good.
The baddest dog in Harlem Throughout history, humans have treated each other detestably, discriminating each other solely on basis of disparities in terms of gender, sexual orientation, religion and race, all states that you, as a simple human being, have no control over. The obscure face of discrimination is constantly pushing fellow human beings down into a dark pit of inferiority and inadequacy, holding them down, making it impossible for them to rise up and dust off.

The short story takes place in Harlem, New York, a city known for poverty, crime and unemployment, during a police hunt for an unknown enemy.

She also adds that this particu-lar short story is “a parable (…) about the desperate need to master the contents of the con-scious mind so that loss and grief are denied entry into this precariously and defensively controlled domain of the psyche” (1996: 197).
The power of human resilience is reflected by how Elie Wiesel remains humane throughout the tragedy of the Holocaust, as expressed in Night. Over the course of the book, Elie shows how he survives the tyrannical reign of Hitler and the Nazis in the camps, with his growth as a person, his resilience against inhuman actions and his survival. These are just a few examples, each being a significant factor to his life, and important to the story.
