The only thing that the war can give us is unhappiness, and cannot bring anything good.
Unlike, stories in the nineteenth century which discuss how things should be; stories in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries tell it as it is. This style of writing makes the reader feel as if the writers have lost hope in world ever recovering. Although, it is not hard seeing why writers have such a hopeless outlook on their world. The Moment before the Gun Went Off shows a how divided the world truly is. The story show how black and white the issue of race was portraying, when a white farmer accidentally shot his illegitimate black son.

Shakespeare illuminates the flaw of Brutus as his uncanny ability in poor judgment and faulty reasoning that leads him to make the decisions he does. Brutus is being manipulated by Cassius and is trying to find any possibly logical reason for killing Caesar. The problem with that is there is no reason Caesar should have died. Brutus attempts to earn the plebeians' loyalty by asking. Had you rather Caesar live and die all slaves?
Hitler’s brutal actions against the Jews revealed his true inner dark self, similar to Jack. The Jews were viewed as inferior by the Nazis and they treated the Jews awfully. Piggy was treated the same by Jack because Jack makes fun of him constantly. The symbol portrayed by the author has a connection to an event in World War II, which is the Holocaust. The Lord of the Flies and the Holocaust symbolizes the wicked side of every human.
"Pack of crazy fools," he said. "Listening to the young folks, nothing 's good enough for them. Next thing you know, they 'll be wanting to go back to living in caves, nobody work any more, live that way for a while. Used to be a saying about “Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.

Throughout the Nobel Peace Prize award winner Night, a common theme is established around dehumanization. Elie Wiesel, the author, writes of his self-account within the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. Being notoriously famed for its unethical methods of punishment, and the concept of laboring Jews in order to follow a regime, was disgusting for the wide public due to the psychotic ideology behind the concept. In the Autobiography we are introduced to Wiesel who is a twelve year old child who formerly lived in the small village of Sighet, Romania. Wiesel and his family are taken by the Nazi aggressors to the Concentration camp Auschwitz were they are treated like dogs by the guards.
Therefore, a man such as Claudius, from Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, a cold-blooded murderer and a ruthless manipulator, who uses “rank” deeds to usurp the thrown is in direct violation with the Elizabethan societal norms, and hence he is an evil character. In the Elizabethan era, the royal crown was viewed as divinely touched and hence any action against the crown was an action against God. Claudius dismisses God’s right to control the crown by committing a “murder most foul” (I.v.27), yet he concedes that “there’s such divinity doth hedge a king” (IV.v.121). Claudius admits that God influences the monarchy and yet he chooses to violate the divine monarchial progression. Hamlet recognizes Claudius’ evil nature beyond simply the murder of his father; Hamlet sees that Claudius is corrupting all of Denmark.
Writers, who through the use of clever symbolism, mocked the tragedy of man's fate. One such writer was William Golding. An author who has seen the destruction of war and despises its inevitable return. Through the use of innocent and untainted children, Golding illustrates how man is doomed by his own instinct. The novel is called Lord of the Flies, and is of extreme importance to help reconstruct the current wave of revolutionary ideas that swept the twentieth-century generation.
