In the book Devil in the White City Larson’s use of themes greatly impacted the flow and message of the book. Themes such as evil, existing anywhere and everywhere in the world with those committing these acts of evil usually hiding behind a facade of goodwill and well meaning intentions. Another theme that was a key concept in the book, was that of delusions and the consequences of them. As the book progressed, the characters that represent the themes delved deeper into the depths of what these themes really represented until their whole essence is what they represented. The themes that Lason used are independent to one another but in their extremes they morph into a similar if not just one an over arching theme. This is the same for

How the Hubermanns Demonstrated Courage throughout the Novel Eleanor Roosevelt once said “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. '” <Brainyquote.com> Throughout the novel the Hubermanns demonstrate tremendous courage. Like what Eleanor Roosevelt says, the Hubermanns really did look fear right in the face. One example of this is, they allowed a Jew to hide in their home, going directly against the law and belief of Nazi Germany despite the harsh consequences that could be waiting for them (Zusak 173). The family all cared for the Jews, and put their
In our 3rd block Ransom Red Chief Trial, we had very good points of view from both the prosecution team and the defense team. The Prosecution seemed to have more evidence that Bill and Sam had intentions on kidnapping the young boy. Along with the Defense had some good evidence
Do you think that the neiborbors will be glad that red chief is back? I think that they will be madder than two elephants that don’t have any water to drink. The reason why I say this is because he does a lot of very bad things. Likewise he is always throwing rocks at his neighbors cats and his neighbor really hates that. Also he is as loud as a train horn. Then one day red chief was out side digging a hole to china in the middle of his neighbor’s yard. Then when the lady looked out her widow and sawl red chief digging she came out side scheming as loud as a bobcat.
In the movie of The Ransom of Red Chief there are some differences and similarities. In the movie Red chief drives a car. When in the short story Red Chief didn’t drive a car. There’s no way that a 10 year old kid can drive a car. In the movie
Literary terms are incredibly vital to short stories. Literary Terms such as symbolism, setting and conflict give the reader a better understanding of the text. In two short stories, “The Ransom of Red Chief” by O. Henry and “The Pedestrian” by Ray Bradbury, literary terms are used to develop each of the short stories’ central ideas.
Do most people ever “expect the unexpected”? This theme can often be found in books and movies or other things. The theme is the main lesson in the story . The short story “Ransom Of Red Chief” by O’henry and the movie “Home Alone”both have common themes. One theme they
In the “Ransom of Red Chief” I don’t feel sympathy for the kidnappers because they aren't suppose to be kidnapping anyway. They should have known from the beginning when Red Chief threw a brick at them that he was going to be tough to kidnap. They really picked a bad decision on who to kidnap and this was their fault. I don't feel sympathy for them because they didn't really have a great plan. The kidnappers kept Red Chief in a cave to where they could keep him in. The reason they chose to kidnap this kid was because he came from a rich family. They thought they would take the kid then ask for money to give him back in exchange. Once the kid was gone for a while they wrote a letter asking for money from his father to give the kid back. This
The theme of a story is the moral message or lesson of a story. There are many themes in Home Alone and Ransom of Red Chief but the one that stood out to me the most was that the looks of people can be extremely different from their actions. In the story Ransom of Red Chief the story states “The kid was a freckle-faced boy of ten with freckles that stood out. His hair was the color of the cover of the magazine you buy at the newsstand when you want to catch a train. Hey little boy! Says Bill Would you like to have a bag of candy and a nice ride? The boy hits Bill square in the eye with a piece of brick”. This illustrates that most people who read this story think he is a good kid by his looks until you read where he hits Bill in the head with a brick. Bill thought he was a good kid but Bill learned the hard way. In a scene from Home Alone the bad guys are looking through the house window and think he’s a helpless little boy, but when they try to get into the house they see he’s not at all what he looks like. Kevin made the steps icey so they would slip, put a blow torch above the door so it would burn their hair and made an iron fall on Marv’s face. This reveals that people first judge others based on their looks but they don't truly know what they are like. Kevin and Johnny look like innocent people but they have another side.
There is a theme that is for both the movie and the short story that connects them together. The theme for both “Ransom of Red Chief” and “Home Alone” would be Don't let anyone take advantage of you or your things. Evidence that supports this theme on page 64 “Now and then he would let out a war whoop that made Old hank the Trapper shake. That boy had bill terrorized from the start.” This shows home Red Chief got back at Bill and soon to be Sam for kidnapping him and so did Kevin in Home Alone. In Home Alone Kevin had Marv terrorize the same as Bill. Kevin scares Marv throughout the movie by torturing him with his traps.(Home Alone) Red chief scared and torchured Bill by riding him 90 miles on his back. They both scare and hurt the
The Ransom of the Red Chief: CER “People trust their eyes above all else - but most people see what they wish to see, or what they believe they should see; not what is really there.” This quote, by Zoe Marriott, supports the universal truth conveyed in The Ransom of the Red Chief, a low comedy by O. Henry. Henry uses comic character and comic situation to make his audience laugh whilst portraying the truth that people differ from how they appear to be.
