One night the moon is able to explore the factors, which nourish belonging through connections to family, purpose and spiritual connections with the land. Conversely, it also looks at the barriers, which can prevent belonging such as rejection from others, isolation from the land and a lack of understanding. Jim’s, an Anglo-Australian farmer’s, connection with his family is shown through his obvious sense of purpose from his role as a provider, this is shown in the mid-shot of him driving the carriage symbolising his role at the head of the family. In this scene there is an obvious parallel to Aboriginal character Albert’s family shown through their mode of transport as Albert and his family walk, whilst Jim drive by in his carriage, symbolising Albert’s connection to the land. Albert’s connection is similar to Billy’s as Albert feels a connection to the land, Billy feels a connection to Bendarat QUOTE highlighting that a sense of place is able to enrich belonging.
In 'The Cat and the Moon', Yeats uses descriptions of the natural world to move from the playful triviality of nature to using images of nature to question what we can and cannot know as humans. He challenges the outward simplicity of nature by reflecting it in his poem alongside suggestions that there may be something magical within nature that cannot always be seen on the surface. Throughout the poem, Yeats has chosen to use a very playful rhythm, like one expected of a nursery rhyme; simple and songlike. This rhythm is particularly noticeable in the opening of the poem, "The cat went here and there And the moon spun round like a top." This simple rhythm reflects Yeats simplistic view of nature and the pleasure and delight he feels nature should bring to people.
Crooks, named for his crooked back, is one of the most vulnerable characters on the ranch, mostly due to his race combined with general racist attitudes at the time. He lives by himself because he is the only black man on the ranch, and he has been so beaten down by loneliness and prejudicial treatment of that he is now suspicious of any kindness he receives. Crooks is painfully aware that his skin color is all that keeps him separate in this culture. This outsider status causes him to lament his loneliness, but he also delights in seeing the loneliness of others, perhaps because misery loves company. When Lennie arrives at his room, he turns him away, hoping to prove a point that if he, as a black man, is not allowed in white men’s houses, then whites are not allowed in his, but his desire for company ultimately wins out and he invites Lennie to sit with him.
For instance, after he is relieved from frontline duty, Paul gains a deep reverence for the natural world around him: “We hear the muffled rumble of the front only as very distant thunder, bumblebees droning by quite drown it. Around us stretches the flowery meadow. The grasses sway their tall spears; the white butterflies flutter around and float on the soft warm wind of the late summer” (9). The beauty of this sense of f life is even more outstanding because it is the opposite to the death and bloodshed of war. The soldiers then develop an appreciation for the world, which
The progression of the relationship is presented by Brontë through acts of rebellion against both Hindley and religious oppression. Catherine and Heathcliff are ally’s against the somewhat brute that is Catherine’s brother, Hindley, who from the start makes his dislike and disapproval of Heathcliff explicit; treating him harshly like a servant and not as an additional member of the family. Furthermore, the pair reject conventional Christianity and the religious oppression, curses and threats provided by Joseph. As a result, the children escape to the mysterious wild landscape of the Yorkshire Moors, an appealing and comforting alternative respite from Wuthering Heights as well as a significant gothic feature of literature. The moors act as a source of freedom for the children and an idyllic setting utilised by Emily Brontë to lay the foundations of the relationship between Catherine and Heathcliff whom are now at this point ‘very thick’ (V1C4P33).

In addition to that, the use of unique words make the literary piece even more interesting, and enjoyable for the audience. The first stanza refers to the arrival of the night and the noises made by animals over the course of the night. The speaker is alert of every sound produced by animals, such as birds, frogs, or other elements of the natural world. Furthermore, it explains them in such a language that for instance Kumin take the reader to the moment of fear that she was experiencing with campers. We can infer from this first stanza that even though we, humans use night to rest, and consider night a time of silence, a lot of things are going on from Mother Nature while we rest every day.
This theme of happiness through simplicity with nature weaves itself throughout Into the Wild. The dominant tone of the work can be described as factual, a voice of conflicting emotion. On one hand we hear Chris’ excitement, happiness, and hope as he heads out on his adventure “into the wild”, but on the other we hear his desperate hopelessness as he physically deteriorates. The reporter style of the book makes this contrast obvious, but lessens the emotional side of the story. As a reader you often forget that this is a true story; yet as powerful as it is you do not laugh or cry like you might with another book.
