Throughout the novels Night by Elie Wiesel, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee and Cry the Beloved Country by Alan Paton, there are clear themes of rebellion, revolution or both. A rebellion is defined as an effort by many people to change the government or leader of a country by use of protest or violence. It may also be defined as open opposition towards a person or group in authority or the refusal to obey rules or accept the normal standards of behavior. A revolution is defined as a forcible overthrow of a government or social order, in favour of a new system. It may also be defined as a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure; it is usually sudden and accompanied by violence.
The French Revolution differs from the model in the way that the King made a minimal effort to appease the third estate when they appeared to begin to revolt when the model doesn’t mention a compromise on either parts, and in the way that violence was a major aspect of the revolution and mass murders occurred. The Crane Brinton model states that the first stage of a revolution, called “The Old Regime”, is when reformers begin to rise up against a economically and politically weak government and tension arises between classes; the second stage involves symbolic actions, planning of the revolution, and a significant increase in the power of the revolutionaries, even more than the government; the third stage is rule of the moderates where there is a better and more organized government, and moderates take over, write a new constitution, and fight a war. The French Revolution follows the model pretty closely excluding for when the King made a small effort to prevent the revolution, and during the violent stages. When King Louis XVI saw the economic crisis that France
