Survival is a hard, but natural instinct for all humans. In the book, Night, by Elie Wiesel l, Night, the reader learns about the struggles Elie and his family faced during World War II. The struggles are also seen in the song “Red Sector A” by the band Rush. The novel and the song both express the importance of surviving during difficult times when one feels like giving up, as stated in the song, “All that we can do to help ourselves is to stay alive.” In Elie Wiesel’s novel Night, the beginnings of the Holocaust are shown in the time period of 1944-1945 while also explaining the struggles of having the will to live. In “Red Sector A” written by Neil Peart for his band Rush, the lyrics explain the need to survive and describe about wounds that can never heal. Both literary works expose images that one just cannot forget. One common theme shown in both works is the need for hope and strength to survive. Peart describes, “Days and weeks and months go by. Don’t feel the hunger... Too weak to cry.” In the beginning, Elie had faith and hope, but, towards the end of the novel his faith and hope slowly started to fade as he notices that nothing is changing and nothing is getting any better. It is easy to compare everything from survival and hope. Similarly, in Night Elie states: "Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky. Never shall I forget those flames, which consumed my faith forever (Eliezer 32). In the song “Red Sector A” and in the book, Night, the reader can see how there is clearly puzzlement and confusion. In Night, Elie states: “Was there a single place here where you were not in danger of death?"(Wiesel 37). In

Some of topics that analytic philosophy targets are analyzing language, forming logical explanations, and supporting natural sciences (Mastin, Analytic Philosophy, 2008).

I have driven many different kinds of cars, from very slow cars like Jeep to very fast cars like
B.M.W, since I got my driving license, but just two of them were very attractive for me. Kia Forte and
B.M.W 235i are two wellknown brands of cars in all over the world. Although both are very fast and
suitable for an interesting driving, there is an ocean difference between their safety, quality of engine,
and driving convenience.
Although safety of both cars is better than old cars…

Comparison Essay: Block Approach
In the block form of the comparison essay, you discuss each of the articles or topics
separately and then in the final body paragraph integrate your discussion – this is the
point where you directly compare the two ideas. While your final body paragraph is the
heart of your comparison essay, it may be the smallest since you have already done the
work of describing the two ideas in your earlier paragraphs.
Briefly describe the two things you are…

The purpose of this essay will be to compare ‘Do not go gently into that good night’ of Dylan Thomas published in 1951 with ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake published 1794. The Dylan Thomas piece is an impassioned plea to his father not to succumb to what seems to be an inevitable death. The poem is heavily tinged with anger at the prospect that his father appears to be accepting this fate without a fight. Thomas means to stir him into action; not with compassion or sadness but…
by a person opens a whole new realm of difficulty. My writing process for this comparison and contrast piece was mainly of experience and description. The two documents used for references are a daily part of an engineering and technician position for General Motors LLC. Luckily, I have been a part of both teams in writing these documents.
The rhetorical situation was an important part of the writing of this essay, I believe, due to the need of a belief. As I have a mixed audience either in the…
