Compare and contrast the ways McEwan and Fitzgerald present the complexities of human love in light of this comment.
The poem we chose to make a film on is Natasha Trethewey's History Lesson. This poem stood out to me because it mirrors an issue that black people are facing in society today. Segregation of the past connects to the black lives matter campaign that we are facing now in present day. The poem History Lesson represents how individuals in black communities strived for equality. The main theme I found present in this piece was the reflection on past racial struggles and inequality and the hope individuals held onto while striving for an end to segregation and future equality.
Night by Elie Wisel and Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck are both books that have differences and similarities in the relationships of their main characters. These characters are Elie and his father, which are two Jews trapped in a concentration camp for the book Night. The other book Of Mice and Men includes two other characters, who are Lennie and George. These two characters have very close friendship, and take care of each other. These two relationships differ and coincide, in how they treat each other, and in how they care for one another even when they don’t have to. The relationships of the characters in both books are both fairly close, but still face many hardships along the way.

Relationship between Teller and Tale in The Merchant’s Tale and The Wife of Bathe A relationship is usually seen between the teller of a tale and the tale that he or she decides to share. Chaucer’s pilgrim, the Merchant, uses his feelings on marriage to teach a lesson in his
Friendship is the base of all human Love is one of the most prominent themes throughout the novel. From the beginning of the story, Charles, Adam’s younger brother, felt an absence of love from their father. Later on, Cal, Adam’s youngest son, feels an absence of love. Cathy struggles with the concept of love throughout her entire life. Adam believes he has found the true meaning of love, only to have his heart broken. Finally, Aron Trask, Adam’s youngest son, battles in his young relationship with Abra. Each of these instances are different, but they all reveal one major thing-- love is something that is different for each person, and the presence of love is something that many people overlook. The absence of love is something that can have an extreme effect on people. Steinbeck explains, "The greatest terror a child can have is that he is not loved, and rejection is the hell he fears. I think everyone in the world to a large or small extent has felt rejection. And with rejection comes anger, and with anger some kind of crime in revenge for the rejection, and with the crime guilt—and there is the story of mankind” (270). This is one of the most powerful quotes in the entire story. Steinbeck relates every aspect of mankind to the concept of
There were numerous differences between the two stories. For example, Night and Life is Beautiful are both centered around their similar themes. Their common theme is that when someone has another person to love and something to hope for, they are capable of incredible things. In Night, Elie and his father’s love and hope depend on each other. As long as they were both alive, Elie as well as his father had a reason to stay alive and maintain their hope. But once Elie’s father died, the one person Elie could put his love and hope into was gone. In Life is Beautiful, Guido’s family all depend on each other. The father depends on his son and wife; the son depends on his mother and father; and the mother depends on her son and husband. They each put a little bit of their hope and love into each other. So, when Guido dies, a little part of his wife and son dies as well taking a small part of their hope and love with him. Another similarity between these two fascinating stories is the father-son relationship. As stated in the previous similarity, they rely on each other. However, these two relationships are different within their similarity. Between Elie and Chlomo, Elie’s father, they had a strong relationship that kept them going through everything. At one point, Elie even helped his father get the marching pattern right so Chlomo would not get hurt. Also, Elie gave his bread to his father even when the more logical thing to do was to keep it for himself since he was obviously the only one who had a chance at life then. In this
