Throughout A Farewell to Arms, rain tends to destroy any happiness felt between Catherine and Henry, as it foreshadows tragedy to come.

Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, the author uses symbolism to show how gold is symbolic of richness and wealth, and in turn, corruption and death, with clothing/setting choice, Myrtle’s house, and Mr. Gatsby’s car.
According to John Green, when Gatsby talks about his first meeting with Daisy, it is apparent that Gatsby is more in love with her mansion than Daisy herself. Green also points out the not-so-obvious fact that when Daisy and Gatsby finally meet again, everything is yellow. Gatsby’s suit, Daisy’s buttons, Gatsby’s Windows, and even the flowers outside...

Michael Brown was an unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed by the police in Ferguson. I feel that the unarmed 18 year old has become a powerful symbol of the lack of trust between African Americans and the law enforcement, not only in Ferguson, but in the rest of the country. I doubt that the officer drew his weapon or fired it for no reason. When the officer shot he might have been defending himself. After research, reports say that Brown was shot in the front of his body, so he could have probably been running away. I think that if the officer wanted to kill him after a couple shots I’m sure he would have shot on the chest or head. Also, if Brown did steal from the store, I...

Henri, through the church, possesses considerable powers over the African Americans who utilize his property, and this illustrates the contradiction that is present in the lives of the African...
