In the best –selling novel the Maze Runner, James Dashner has developed many meaningful and complex themes. From all these various themes, I believe the main motive and message of the story is how friendship can help us pass the hurdles and obstacles in life and help us achieve success. The novel, the Maze Runner displays tremendous amounts of friendship and strong bonds between characters in the society. The novel written by James Dashner demonstrates the importance of friendship in life. In the Maze Runner strong bonds and exceptional friendship were created in many events, but the relation between Chuck and Thomas, the bond between Teresa and Thomas and the relations amongst all the Gladers working together showed a really deep meaning of companionship.

Father Roles Heaney Father Roles There are many factors that will shape a young boy’s life, but possibly none more important than the role of that boy’s father. Seamus Heaney and Theodore Roethke both have shown the importance of the father role in their poems “Digging” and “My Papas Waltz.” Although the roles of the fathers in these poems were different, the respect and admiration shown by their sons is one in the same. Weather it is Heaney’s father digging under his window, or Roehtke’s father dancing him around as a little boy, the love shown in these two poems, shows a direct relation on the lives they shared with their fathers. Heaney’s poem, “Digging” showed that while the boy still loved his father, he did not wish to carry on the tradition of potato digging that had been in his family for generations. For example, Heaney wrote that he had “no spade to follow men like them”(Spence par 1).
“Oh yes you can, Doodle,” I said. “All you got to do is try. Now come on, and I hauled him up once more.” Doodle went along with his brother, even though it sometimes hurt. He never gave up, and if he tried his brother was always there to press Doodle onward. In a way, I think the love of Doodle should have been much more precious to his brother than the activities they planned.
Roethke’s and Hayden’s poems use tone in the same way to show that both children ultimately love their fathers regardless of the abuse he commits. The young boy in My Papa’s Waltz is clearly very fond of his father even though his Papa abuses him. It is through the tone the young boy uses that Roethke shows how much he loves his father. This is first enforced when the boy says, “But I hung on like death: Such waltzing was not easy” (Roethke, 3-4). The boy loves his father and he h... ... middle of paper ... ...se of sound further proves that the young man loves his father.
The French Revolution and the legacy of A Tale of Two Cities It is a commonplace of Dickensian criticism that the writer was influenced by Carlyle's The French Revolution in A Tale of Two Cities. Taking Dickens's comment that he read Carlyle's history "five hundred times" (I. Collins 46) as a starting point, many critics have discussed Carlyle's influence on several aspects of the novel, such as the narrative technique (Friedman 481-5), the imagery associated with the Revolution (I. Collins 52; Baumgarten 166; Lodge 131-2), and the narration of the historical episodes (Lodge 134; Friedman 489). And yet, Dickens's outlook on revolutionary violence differed significantly from that of Carlyle. As Irene Collins points out, Dickens "dislikes the violence of the revolutionaries, both in its popular form (the mob) and in its institutionalised form (the Terror). Unlike Carlyle, he can no longer see justice in the violence" (53).
