When first reading Kate Chopin's "Story of an Hour," one may not typically be surprised at its ending, write it off as one of those creepy "back from the dead" horror stories and forget about it. There is more to this story than simply horror. The author is making a very strong, however subtle, statement towards humanity and women's rights. Through subtle symbolism, Kate Chopin shows how marriage is more like a confining role of servitude rather than a loving partnership.
Science fiction movies often depict the consequences of failing to slow the damage to the environment in the science fiction movie, The Day After Tomorrow, the weather on earth begins to do strange things. The ice caps start to melt and break, tornados rip through Hollywood, and tsunamis flood the coast. Jack Hall, a climatologist, explains global warming and the melting of the ice caps is to blame for this weather. He predicts the North Atlantic current will shut down, and the northern states will see the next ice age. The vice president dismisses his claims until his predictions come true in the following days. Eventually, the air in the north gets so cold that people seem to freeze within seconds resulting in a nearly unsurvivable ice age where people in the north must stay inside near a fire to survive.

In That Evening Sun, William Faulkner approaches the story through an anecdotal style that gives meaning to the story. The narrator uses the anecdote that happened to him to convey the story’s underlying meaning that people are restricted by social class and race, not realizing this meaning himself at the time. The era of racism pertains to the meaning of the story, discussing the aversion of southern white people to help those different from them, focusing on the restrictions that society has placed on social class and race separation and the desire to maintain the division.

A desire leads to boldness and boldness leads to bold decisions. This summer for my writing project I read A Raisin in the Sun, a drama by Lorraine Hansberry and The Red Badge of Courage, a story by Stephen Crane. For the book I could choose not from the list, I read Infidel a novel by Ted Dekker. Although these three books were in different time periods and had different dramas, they had very similar themes. The theme of A Raisin in the Sun was desire. The theme of The Red Badge of Courage was boldness. The theme of Infidel was decisions. That leads me to think that the three themes of boldness, desire, and decisions, all relate to each other.
The set of A Raisin In The Sun will accomplish telling the story about their dreams through the objects in the house being well maintained. This does not mean that everything is brand new, in fact, it is quite the opposite. To showcase this a variety of objects are acceptable, however the couch and rug are primary examples. The rug would be impeccable without a spot of dirt, but would have worn spots and faded patches.The couch must appear well maintained, however, would sag slightly in the middle and have discolored spots from years of use. Other details to add are small dents in the doorframe or scratches on the wall. Small things that the audience probably has in their own house that have long stories behind them For the first act of Clybourn

Towards the beginning of the book Robert Cohn asks Jake, “Don’t you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you’re not taking advantage of it? Do you realize that you’ve lived nearly half the time you have to live already?” Jake weakly answers, “Yes, every once in a while.” The book focuses on the dissolution of the post-war generation and how they cannot find their place in life. Jake is an example of a person who had the freedom to choose his place but chose poorly.
"Never shall I forget that night, the first night in the camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky. Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever. Never shall I forget that nocturnal silence which deprived me, for all eternity, of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never."

"One generation passeth away, the passage from Ecclesiates began, and another generation cometh; but the earth abideth forever. The sun also ariseh…"(Baker 122).

His own experience in Paris has provided him the background for the novel as a depiction of the 'lost generation'.
In “That Evening Sun,” William Faulkner uses only thousands of words to recreate the old, cruel doctrine of racial discrimination in the South America. The whole story is told by a young boy, and it analyses the miserable life of a poor black woman, Nancy, from a naïve child’s perspective. The words in the story are simple but straightforward. Faulkner makes this story strange but unique by leaving no special relationship between the young narrator and the black woman, so the narrator is pushing the entire story with his truest descriptions and most direct portrays. This objective way of narration highlights the black woman’s tragic fate that is brought by the unfair society. Under the child’s simple narration, there are darkness and misery lying under the mask.
The sun is the largest object in the solar system. It is a middle-sized star and there are many other stars out in the universe just like it. Even though it is only a middle-sized star it is large enough to hold over 1 million Earth’s inside if it were hollow. The temperature on the sun is far too much for any living thing to bear. On the surface it is 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit and the core is a stunning 27,000,000 degrees Fahrenheit. But don’t worry we are over 90,000 million miles away, the sun could never reach us, at least not yet. The sun is a still a middle aged star and later in its life it will become a Red Giant. In this stage it will get bigger, and closer to us causing a temperature increase and most likely the
