It is up to ordinary people form the small town to try to save the day. I choose this book because I personally am a fan of Ray Bradbury’s work.

Edgar Allan Poe is able to show that Gothic literature can be taken very seriously but also that there are many faults to the genre. He is able to expertly write serious Gothic fiction and satirical Gothic fiction, as well as a peculiar medley of the two, wherein he combines the greater parts of the two genres. The way Poe uses Gothic devices in this story can be conveyed as both serious and parodic; showing both the horror and the comedy in the Gothic writing style. Poe shows how trivial the Gothic genre can become when overusing darkness and decay. From the moment the narrator even gets close to the House of Usher he notices that every bit of vegetation surrounding the mansion is dead and grey, and that there is a “pestilent and mystic vapor”

When Elie wrote his memoir, Night, he conveyed his tone of abandonment towards his morals and humanity that reinforced his ideas of people and the world around him. Set in Nazi Germany, Night states how the Holocaust took Jews out of happy lives, took away everything that meant anything to Jewish culture and life, and forced slavery onto the abused people, under the heavy hand to Hitler and the merciless SS soldiers. The Nazis were ruthless to the Jews. “If anyone goes missing, you will all be shot” (24) one of the soldiers declared to Eliezer’s cattle car. The SS loved to show off their power to the Jews, mainly by killing or injuring, emotionally and physically, without a second thought to how the tortured bodies they attack feel.
