In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s, “Young Goodman Brown,” and in the Gospel of Luke, “The Parable of the Prodigal Son,” the reader is given a glimpse into the journeys of the main characters from each story. Both the Prodigal Son and Goodman Brown leave their families and set off on their own. While on their journey they encounter very different obstacles and people, they eventually make their way back home after events that will change them drastically. However, as similar as the basis of both these short stories are the protagonist in the, “Parable of the Prodigal son,” finds his way back to his family, unlike Goodman Brown in Hawthorne’s short story, who may physically be back with his family but has lost his faith and has been corrupted by the devil. Both stories begin with the main characters leaving their homes.
“Separation” – Compare and Contrast Essay by Sharon Engelholm Separation is when one grows a separate self and comes to be defined as an individual. The act of separation from parents involves different kinds of thought and feelings both for the parent and the child. However, despite all the difficulties, separation does not mean to give up on the emotional attachment, but to separate geographically.

The aim of watching and analysing the film, The Blind Side , was to identify and apply the interpersonal communication theories that were present in the particular scene that I have chosen and from this movie, I hope to learn to assess and interpret situations using interpersonal communication to be applied in my daily life when encountering such situations with such circumstances.

Upon reaching the area, he meets the thug, Alton whom invites Michael into his shared home to catch up while waiting for his mother whom supposedly would drop by any time as usual. In the
“There are many stories about Mike Sullivan” is the very first sentence used. That piece of dialogue meaning that this film will be about “Mike Sullivan” and an example that shows a narrative possibility. The sound, lighting, prop and motifs are production elements that demonstrate certain aspects and highlights parts of a film. Road to Perdition is quite dark throughout the film to give a certain sense or feeling that things aren’t what they are made out to be.

In Tim Winton’s series of short stories Scission, the characters are afflicted with a sense of fragmentation from others, yet they still continue to make new discoveries about themselves and their relationships. In many of the short stories, the characters form a sense of rehabilitation or renewal in themselves and with other people – even if the problems are unsettled. An exemplification that supports this are the short stories: Secrets, Thomas Awkner Floats, Getting Ahead and Neighbours.

This essay explores the way J.B Priestley presents family relationships through his use of language in the play, “An Inspector Calls".
