Chesnutt uses “The Sheriff was conscientious: his conscience had merely been warped by his environment” (43) to present he had been warped into the racial environment of the town. Warp is water imagery because it reveals the damage water can leave behind. Chesnutt allows the reader to understand that “warped” illustrates water to reveal how racism warped the sheriff’s conscience as water would warp a wood floor after a flood. He demonstrates his idea of consumption of racism by expressing the racial damage that is done by southern white men on the town and African Americans. He allows the reader to understand his ideas by revealing “But the baleful influence of human slavery poisoned the fountains of life, and created new standards of right”

Again we see Patria fall in love with the idea that Trujillo and God are together it is as if they merged faces as Patria mentioned before.”Minerva could tell. One day, we were lying side by side on the hammock strung just outside the galería. She must have caught me gazing at our picture of the Good Shepherd, talking to his lambs.
From the beginning of their existence, humans have been destined to make mistakes. In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne illustrates a tale of sin, evil, guilt, and shame, but also a story of failure. This juxtaposition of themes highlights not only mankind’s imperfection but its strength in the face of defeat. Hawthorne demonstrates the notion of man’s tendency to make errors, but still the power of resilience through the fallen withering yellow leaves on the forest floor. The falling of leaves is an inevitable and natural process.

The Duke and The King’s greatest contribution to the novel was their role in the moral development of Huckleberry Finn. Mark Twain’s creation of these characters gives an example of how bad people and bad situations can bring out the most compassionate qualities in those who can see the wrongfulness. The Duke and The King have the designation of major, static, antagonists, and they could also be described as foils for Huck. Throughout the novel, The Duke and The King are consistently bad influences for Huck. They would lie to and steal from innocent, unsuspecting families and towns; they had complete disregard for human life and dignity.

In Zeitoun, Eggers does not only promote awareness of social injustices but uses pathos: an appeal to emotion, ethos: an appeal to credibility, and logos: an appeal to logic, to show Zeitoun’s experience during Hurricane Katrina and post-9/11.

Moreover, Edwards had a powerful impact on his puritan audience of his puritan audience because of his use of a complex figurative language in the passage.

Anthony Dykema-VanderArk opens his literary criticism of Black Boy by Richard Wright by stating that Wright’s primary interest in his writing is to focus on the “influence of the environment on a person’s actions and attitudes” (Dykema-VanderArk 1). Dykema-VanderArk continues by explaining Richard’s toxic environment, which was full of racism, violence, and hunger. He then emphasizes how this environment has affected Richard psychologically by creating distance between himself and his family, but also by giving Richard the ambition to “go to great lengths to resist limitations placed on him” (Dykema-VanderArk 1). Richard’s psychological detriment both motivates him and holds him back. Dykema-VanderArk depicts that the lack of psychological fulfillment ultimately affects Richard more than physical hunger, “Richard 's hunger becomes a symbol not of his positive yearning but of his isolation and loneliness, his sense of exclusion from the world around him” (Dykema-VanderArk 2).
