It is the transition and mesh of these stereotypes that make the reading quite interesting.

This form of plot within the novel is similar to a parallel plot structure, with each character’s plot being shown alternately, but it is more episodic due to the fa... ... middle of paper ... ...iduals deemed normal in the “brave new world”. When Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World, he created an intriguing and effective novel, designed to captivate the audience and provide them with a story that is easy to digest, even though it is complex.
In the period of history in which we are living, there is a very strong element of revolt. Revolt against all established institutions. This is good, as those established institutions are, for the most part, extremely oppressive of human personal liberty, and human freedom of thought. People are rightly perceiving all forms of government as basically more interested in their own power and profit than they are in the people they supposedly represent. People are tired of having their own futures and the futures of their children put at risk by the insane scramble for power among those who hold the reins of the various governments all over the planet.
years and years the world has been blinded by the evils in society. There are three main matters that shade us from the truth every day. These are corruption/greed, media takeover, and ignorance. Corruption is one of the worst evils to enter society; it has seemed to become a type of faith on its own. The way it is evil is that corruption has blinded society by the way we think and act, it allows people in society to think that doing evil things is an ok thing to do.
Symbolism is important. In The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy uses many items of symbolism in order to convey complicated ideas/images to the reader. These symbols are often recurring and important parts of the plot which enhances the story or the characters in some way.

Power is a very interesting thing to hold. Many good-natured men have been destroyed by power and turned away from their morals as a result.

This ideal is present in every type of government, regardless of if it’s a dictatorship or a government supported by autonomy. Modern day government suffers from this power hungry greed.
These components are the various components that make up a story. Character qualities are brought out after being faced with conflict and how they deal with their problems. This shows the true personality and characteristics of the characters. The symbols found in the setting of a story are used to show the author 's ideas. These symbols are usually emphasized because of their meaning to the story and because of how the author intends them to be read by the audience.
Motifs such as love, hope, and inner strength are all characterized as well, and as Hosseini develops his story further into the plot, we can see further into the motifs themselves, and their significance in the novel, as well as their relation to the real world. Hosseini uses relationships extensively in this novel as well, using them to portray a use of the motif in a very literal way, in order to better organize his thoughts and his “commentary” in regards to each theme through the dialogue of each character. The relationship between Laila, Mariam and Rasheed in the novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, characterizes the importance of the idea of inner strength, women’s rights, and love, all of which are a powerful motifs throughout the novel. The motif of women’s rights is one of the largest underlying themes in the book. Heavily shown by Hosseini’s characters, such as Rasheed and the Taliban, this novel shows the type of abuse and neglect women suffered during this time.
Sometimes harsh, sometimes cleansing, and almost always painful, these elements shape the characters and plot, and reside in much of the imagery explored in the novel. The techniques of symbolism, metaphor and imagery develop the novel's themes of love, war, suffering and identity, which inform a reading of the novel which would not be as powerful through use of characters and plot alone. The subtlety and eloquence through which these themes are explored really inspire thought and reflection in the reader, which in turn credits a more complex understanding of the novel.
