Count Of Monte Cristo And Blessings Comparison

Good Essays
Every story has a theme and authors all develop them differently. In the passages, The Count of Monte Cristo and a scene from Blessings, both develop their themes differently. Both passages have similarities and differences on how they develop a theme. One of them may make it more difficult to find the theme than the other. It’s not like someone would instantly know the theme unless you read the story or passage very carefully.
First, Blessing’s theme is way harder to find. While in The Count of Monte Cristo is hard but not as hard to find. In Blessings I think you have to read carefully about the characters and what they are talking about. The characters talk about many things and I was confused if they were looking at a map or a real place. The characters are important to theme too. The theme usually involves two or more people. In Blessings, you could say Jesse and Rene are best friends and then find the theme. I usually pay attention to the characters to see the

This is a part of a play or just the whole play so you can only really pay attention to what they are saying. The two characters talk about locations and quiz each other on directions to someplace. Like they wanted to come back to where they had gone to and had seemed so cool they had to memorize the directions to that place. They even made a map, well Jesse made it.
Second, in The Count of Monte Cristo you have to pay attention the characters and where they are. In Blessings, it was the same that you had to pay attention to the characters, but you also had to mainly pay attention to what they say. While in The Count of Monte Cristo, none of the characters really say much so it would be pointless paying attention to what they say. There is only two or three lines of characters talking. You have to pay attention to the one the passage is mainly focusing on, which is the prisoner and the

    Monte Cristo Allusions

    • 3 Pages

    Most people accept their humanity and do accept that they must answer to a higher power. Human ideals of God derive from the hierarchy of religion. Most cultures like Roman, Greek, Catholic, and Arabic at times mistakenly idolize statues as more powerful than themselves. In doing this, the people begin to believe in illusory ideas of immortal powers. People ultimately begin to perceive humans and human creations as superior and godly. Throughout The Count of Monte Cristo, Dumas uses allusions and specific vocabulary to portray The Count as a god -like figure and also shows The Count’s character transform as he seeks revenge and payback on figures from his past.…

    Genesis 1-2 Theme

    • 315 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The theme of “God’s choice of a nation through whom He would bless all nations” (GotQuestions), shows God’s grace. Despite of the fall Adam and Eve had, this theme shows the beginning of redemption. When God flooded and burned humanity, He separated a specific family line so later in the future bring salvation to the world. The theme of beginnings which is found in Genesis 1-2, answers some of the questions people have for example, how was the earth made or how was humanity made. This fits into the biblical story line because in the Creation we see how God put everything together and how He is also involved with the universe. Also it shows how God wants humanity to save the seventh day just like He did when creating the Earth. The theme which…

    In “A Worn Path”, the theme though out the story is about a strong undying love an old woman has for her grandchild. According to Clugston 2010, the theme in a story is associated with an idea that lies behind the story. Every story narrows a broad underlying idea, shapes it in a unique way, and makes the underlying idea concrete. That 's how theme is created. In other words, the theme in a story is a representation of the idea behind the story.…

    The theme God has a great significance to the novel. For instance, “ I tired again, praying for him to forgive the killers, but deep down I couldn't believe that they deserved it all… i was praying forth the devil.“ This quote means, how immaculate is praying for the forgiveness of the killers but can't because she's full of hatred for them.…

    The Book Thief

    The first theme is the power of words. "In years to come he would be a giver of bread, not a stealer proof again of the contradictory human being. So much good, so much evil. Just add water"(pg.171) This goes with the theme because the words in this little paragraph make you think about how Hans Hubberman could be, not just Hans but maybe people in general. People could be really mean at one time and steal. Just add water and they are a bright sunshine that likes to help and be nice. That is how I interpret this quote. Also another quote on the power of words is "I've seen so many young men over the years who think they're running at other young men. They are not. They're running at me."(pg182) The quote relates to the theme because when you really think about that quote its true. People think they are just running at other people or objects but sometimes they aren't. Sometimes they are running at death or maybe partial death and they have no idea.…

    The themes of Our Town are tied into the division of the play, too. They deal with daily life, love and marriage, and death. The primary theme of Our Town is humanity's failure to appreciate and treasure each and every moment of life. As we go through our daily routines, we often fail to recognize or appreciate the things or people around us. The play tells us to value even the most uneventful,…

    Overall the theme really tied in well with the story. There was many more reasons behind this theme. But only the main ones were listed. Do not let these things lead to bigger ones. Just get it over with the first time. Then you have nothing to really worry about. In this play they did not really do that. They made things harder than they really were. They should have just solved the issues in the beginning. It should not have escalated like it did. So that is what the theme of this paper is basically saying. Just do not let problems get bigger. Solve them the first time and be done with…
