“Hunger—thirst—fear—transport—selection—fire—chimney: these words all have intrinsic meaning, but in those times, they meant something else.” (Wiesel 2006, p.XII). Night is a novel and an autobiography written by Elie Wiesel in 2006. In this book, Wiesel shares his four years of Horrifying experience at the concentration camps. The main purpose of writing this book is to show the audience how exactly the day-to-day life of the Jews were at the concentration camps. Two of the main points of this book are Relation and Faith. Wiesel has a good bond with his father that he doesn’t lose no matter what circumstances they both went under. Through out the entire book, Wiesel shows his faith in god to the audience. There were times where he doubts in god and almost loses faith in him and humanity but then he continues to have faith in him. The author Elie Wiesel is a Noble-prize winner and a teacher born on September 19, 1928 in Sighet, Transylvania. Wiesel wanted to study religion because of his religious background but unfortunately that could not happen because he was sent to the concentration camps at the age of twelve. I chose this book because it was something that I chose it in high school to write a paper on but I could not do it because it did not meet the requirements of the professors of my sophomore and junior year. The Author uses his Point of View, Symbolism and Foreshadowing in this Novel.
