Importance of Night Don’t put a title on the page with the essay, include a title page instead.

Introduce the novel by saying something like: Night, by the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Ellie Wiesel, is a novel about the author’s experience with his father in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust. Oftentimes in novels, authors write with a purpose to teach the reader something about the subject. This purpose is to teach the reader a lesson and to enable the reader to grasp a deeper meaning from the novel. to give the reader a deeper meaning about the subject. Nobel Peace Prize winner, Ellie Wiesel, wrote a novel called Night. Wiesel’s intentions with the novel have been widely discussed and many interpretations can be made. but From reading the novel, one can conclude that his three main most prominent intentions that should be emphasized include: informing the world about the Holocaust, encouraging hope in the world, and (spurring(right word? Maybe encouraging is a better word)) all human rights.

(It is possible that) If you want to prove something, I don’t suggest saying things like “it is possible”, you want to be firm in your conclusions. Wiesel wrote this book Night to help himself deal with the pain and anguish of that the gruesome situations he experienced during the Holocaust, but more likely and to teach the future generations about human nature. not to repeat it. In the book, Night, Wiesel intended to inform us his audience of the concentration camps and the pure cruelty behind them. By informing us people about these camps, it prevents us them from making the same decisions mistakes in the future. This book Night also informs us its audience of the (WW2 should you use short form?)), and the racism, and the unjust, twisted and unlawful, barbaric things that occurred during this time period. In Wiesel’s Nobel Peace Prize speech he states: “If we forget, we are guilty, we are accomplices” (118). It is (apparent could possibly replace this with ‘clear’) that Wiesel writes of this tragic? Do you mean tragedy? because he feels that if we forget the crime these crimes are forgotten, we the people who forget are just as guilty as those who committed the crimes.

Wiesel illustrates an emotionally and physically painful time for the prisoners of the concentration camps. This is meant to teach us the reader not to take things for granted. and In a religious point of view, it teaches us one to always have hope and faith no matter how hard one’s situation can be. If many survivors of the Holocaust can get back on their feet, and could see/live move past the horrid things they experienced from the concentration camps, others can have hope too. (Holding onto faith and hope is a motif in this novel and is reoccurring in his interviews. Explain this in further detail) Overall it is pretty well written. Watch your use of pronouns. You always want an essay to be written in 3rd person, so don’t include any personal pronouns (unless of course, otherwise stated). You need to elaborate on your thesis and finish the essay. Be sure to explain all your thoughts and ideas in detail. Support is essential to a successful essay (you may want to include a quote in each body paragraph to give your essay more authority). Great job so far!
