“But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.” “In fact,” said Mustapha Mond, “you’re claiming the right to be unhappy.” “All right then,” said the Savage defiantly, “I’m claiming the right to be unhappy,” This significant quote from Brave New World had moved innumerable readers’ heart, so do I.

I would rather live in the World State due to life on the “savage reserve” being hazardous. On the reserve, food is not guaranteed. In 1984 it is stated that the environment of the savage reserves is so inhospitable that it is not productive to establish civilization in these areas. To me, living in the World State would mean losing my identity, so I wouldn’t miss the freedoms that I have now. On the other hand, on the savage reserve I would be aware of the missing food and absence of any luxury. Also, based on Bernard’s experience in the book, I would have a hard time fitting in on the reserve as a white person.
An important theme in Kate Chopin’s novel The Awakening is the desire for some women to abandon their dull lives as only mothers and wives. In other words, solitude. The main character, Edna Pontellier is a woman with such desires. She has two sons with her husband, Leonce Pontellier, whom she would rather not be with. The theme mentioned earlier is seen all throughout the novel, by means of several different symbols, including birds. There are three examples of birds used within the story, two of which in the very first chapter. The story opens with a loud parrot repeating the phrase: ‘Allez vous-en! Allez vous-en! Sapriste!” (Chopin 1) This roughly translates to “Go away! Go away! For God’s sake!” These words
There are multiple details that stood out as particularly true to life in my view. One was the nariartator that it is telling the story/ his view point main character mentions what check out aisle number. It mentions how the three girls looked. The character payed attention to how the girl that seem to be the leader was walking saying “she came down a little hard on her heels, as if she didn’t walk in her bare feet much” this quote helps you picture how the person and might help picture what the girl was walking like. He gave details to where he was and what he was doing when the three girls was doing. He mentions that “I’m in the third check-out slot with my back to the door so that I didn’t see them until they had reach the bread” this helps the reader to set up an mental image of the store as they are reading.
“They were not badly off whilst Morel was in the hospital. There were fourteen shillings a week from the pit, then shillings from the sick club, and five shillings from the Disability Fund.” (pg.87)
1) “They carried the soldier’s greatest fear, which was the fear of blushing. Men killed, and died, because they were embarrassed not to. It was what had brought them to the war in the first place, nothing positive, no dreams of glory or honor, just to avoid the blush of dishonor. They died so as not to die of embarrassment” (O’Brien 20).
At this moment, my heart seems to beat harder and I felt goosebumps all over my body. This sensation was dreadful and I felt even worse on my arm, where she had grabbed me. I was still standing in the bedroom, watching Heathcliff tearing up the poor bed while crying in it. At that time, I had absolutely no idea of what to do. Comfort him? Run away from this haunted place? In all cases, sleeping was not a possibility. After Heathcliff had no tear left to cry, he stood up and left out the bedroom. I remain silent while packing all of my stuff in a hurry. I decided that I will not stay there any longer. If I remember correctly, there is another house not too far from this place, by chance, they will accept me for a night or two. Since Heathcliff
The celebration of New Year’s Eve was supposed to be an exciting one. Everyone was lighting up fireworks, having fun until the real show begun. The fireworks became the ammunition of the battle between the masters of the neighborhood. The usually kind and nice boys turned violent and obscene. They were “cheerful, aggressive dark figures” (lines 16 and 17). It’s ironic how the festivities of New Year’s Eve are in theory, happy and joyous, but ends up terrifying some of the characters and triggering Lila’s dissolving of margins. Lila “begun to feel horror” (line 30), and a “sense of repulsion” took over her (line 35). She began to see breaking down of innocence. Furthermore, Rino, the person Lila loves the most, also began to repulse
