During the novel, Huck stated “It’s lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky, up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them and discuss about whether they was made, or only just happened.” (Twain, Pg. 90 ¶ 2.) Both Huck and Jim enjoyed being able to connect with nature, and the bond it allowed them to create. The ending of the novel is very romantic, almost as if Twain’s goal was to achieve a story book “happily ever after.” Everything in the ending of the novel goes mysteriously right and all the characters achieve the happiness they were seeking out in the beginning.

The Spirit of the Llano Magical realism is when magical elements or illogical scenarios appear in an otherwise realistic or normal setting. In Bless Me, Ultima there are many elements of magical realism which occur in the sacred town Tony Marez spends his childhood in.

Balance “And yet I am strangely pulled to that day twelve years ago, a day of my beginning, when perhaps our spirits crossed in midair, his rising to heaven, mine descending to earth” (18). In the novel Sister of My Heart, the author Chitra Divakaruni displays the duality of life and death and the idea of balance. The tone of the sentence is one of reluctant interest and reflection. The diction of the sentence is euphonious and polysyllabic, creating a lilting effect and representing the continuation of a deep thought. When Divakaruni uses the parallelism of new life descending and ended life rising, it implies a balance between the two.

The transition from childhood to adulthood labeled, “growing up” is a rite of passage endured by all humans.

He uses literary devices of repetition and symbolism to illustrate this point. In the opening passage of chapter 10, the main protagonist, Holden Caulfield places high value on the youth and innocence that illuminates from his sister, Phoebe.
For Romantic poets, there is no greater force upon humans than one of the many forms of the imagination. For William Wordsworth, this force is exemplified in memory. The greatest example of his exploration of memory comes from "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey, On Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour, July 13, 1798." In it he displays his opinion of memory as a powerful source of enlightenment and pleasure through his interaction with the natural world. It becomes something he recalls time and time again to ease the ills of everyday life, giving him solace that he hopes can also affect the companion of the poem, his sister, Dorothy.
