I feel like the book Night lets off a very sad a depressing mood. The setting of this book is a various amount of concentration camps that Elie and his dad go to. The main central idea of Night is to explain the experiences in the Holocaust. I personally think

The great debate of whether the world will end in a fiery ball of destruction or a frozen wasteland has baffled the minds of many people. A man named Robert Frost has written a poem called "Fire and Ice" that describes his thoughts on how he would prefer to leave this world. Upon reading this poem, the reader can derive two distinct meanings of fire and ice; one being of actual fire and ice destroying the world, and the other having symbols for the fire and ice, such as fire being desire or passion and ice being hatred and deceit. Although this poem is one of his shortest poems with only nine lines, it is also one of the most famous works that he has ever created.
When a reader initially reads Donald Justice’s “The Poet at Seven,” he or she might take the easy route and conclude it for what it says, only. If this method were taken, the poem’s presumed plot would have been taken quite literally: the poet is reminiscing about his childhood memories; the poem is sweet, simple, and nostalgic. However, poems are not that simple. They are complex riddles, full of hidden meaning. To truly shed light on Justice’s purpose of the poem, it is necessary to look at the “what-if’s” through its intricate designs of language. The poem’s form is an important start when close reading. Also, to discern the hidden meaning, it is important to consider the specific word choice and how it paints a picture inside the reader’s mind. As a result, the reader will grasp the poem’s true intention. By doing this, the reader will sincerely have an understanding of “The Poet at Seven,” the way Justice probably would have wanted.
The tragedy of the Holocaust is the murder of the six million Jews and five million Gentiles. The Holocaust traumatized and changed many people. Elie Wiesel, the author of the memoir Night, is one of the most famous survivors of the Holocaust. Elie’s relationship with both God and his father

Last year in English class we were required to read the memoir Night, by Elie Wiesel. I have read many Holocaust journals and memoirs in the past, but none of them had quite the same impact as Night. The book opened my eyes to the freedom and the comfortable lifestyle that I take advantage of everyday. It was hard for me to fathom the pain that he and the other prisoners suffered, and the possibility of my entire world changing overnight the way Elie’s did.
As stated by ushmm.org, up to 6 million Jews were killed while the Holocaust occurred. 1.8 million of the people who died during the holocaust were Non-Jewish. Elie Wiesel writes about his experience in Auschwitz during the holocaust in the book Night. Throughout the book, Elie and his father’s relationship grew stronger and it became more intact. Elie’s mother and sisters were taken away into the crematorium and it was believed they died in the gas chamber. It was only his father and him. They only had each other which grew them closer together.
In a conversation poem titled “Frost at Midnight,” romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge creates a persona of himself who spends the duration of the poem having a one-sided conversation with his newly born baby. The narrator laments his own childhood, but finds solace in knowing that his baby has potential for a better life than he, since the baby will have a nature-centered upbringing. The narrator contrasts constricted and expansive imagery, enumerated and enjambed sentences, and alienated and familiar diction to underline the differences between his own childhood education, which was spent studying books, and the childhood education he hopes his baby will have. The narrator suggests that nature will offer his baby a childhood education superior to his own because nature will teach the baby to be one with the world, allowing him to feel peace and serenity no matter the circumstances.
The book that has made the greatest impact on my life is Night by Elie Wiesel. After reading Night and even while I was reading the book it really just made me think about a lot of things, both good and bad. Night is a memoir, in this book you see Elie’s faith really tested. At the beginning of the book Elie was so strong in his faith, when he was asked “Why do you pray to God?” he answered with “Why do I pray?...Why do I live? Why do I breathe?” His belief in God was so strong at the beginning of his book. He was so strong in his faith primarily because that was what he was taught his whole life, he was Jewish. It was established in his mind, as well as in the mind of most other Jews, that God is everywhere in the world and that nothing would
Referring to the quote, “never shall I forget those moments that murdered my god and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes,” (Wiesel 34) it is relevant to the struggles faced by the Jewish people during their imprisonment in a holocaust camp, particularly Eliezer’s struggles. When he and his father arrived at their first camp they were greeted by an immense crematorium, with black smoke rising from its chimney. Jews stood in the freezing cold with only the miniscule amount of clothes on them, waiting to be told to go somewhere. Eliezer watched as many small children, as well as women, were herded into the crematorium, and turned into nothing but smoke. He came to realize that this could have easily been his fate, had he not lied about his age. Seeing innocent people turned into nothing but ashes and smoke made him question life itself. He had the belief
Auschwitz was a terrible place; it killed more than 960 thousand Jews. In the book “Night” by Elie Wiesel he describes his youth in world war 2 europe where he was transferred to Auschwitz. Elie Wiesel experience are similar and differentiating than most of the people that are introduced in this article proved by “The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.” In the article it proved basic understand of what happened during Auschwitz and how it operated.
Robert Frost is the author of Out Out--, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, and Nothing Gold can Stay. His literary work communicates deep meaning through the use of metaphoric language and deception. Being raised most of his life on a farm; his works perceive the natural life of
With the formation of a “rare device”, symbolizing his masterpiece of poetry, Coleridge acknowledges that poetry forms through the combination of nature and human perception. In the end, Coleridge demands the readers to “beware” (49, p.1634) of the power of the inspired poet, who recreates his own “sunny dome” (47, p.1634) in the protection of a “circle round him thrice” (51, p.1634). The energy from nature is eventually transferred to the poet, the poet to use his imagination to create his own “Paradise” (54, p.1634), which resembles Xanadu of Kubla Khan. Through the metaphors developing in the poem, Coleridge pieces together the process a Romantic poet creates a poem from the inspiration of a nature scene.
