Human relationships in the form of family bond and friendship prove to be beneficial catalysts through which one gains spiritual satisfaction and inner peace with the surrounding environment. A genuine sense of belonging is thus a product of both nature and nurture that bridges the physical and metaphysical chasms between human beings.

The theme of isolation plays a very big part in this story. Susan Hill uses several things in the novel to make a sense of isolation. These include places like El Marsh House itself, and Monk’s Piece. However, she also uses characters to make Arthur seem isolated, people like Mr Jerome, and Mr Bentley. As well as isolation in those senses, Arthur Kipps is also very emotionally isolated from his family’s happiness at the start of the novel, and is separated from other men by his traumatic experiences.
Beowulf Response The story of Beowulf, which was translated and written by Seamus Heaney, depicts a young man destined to be a hero, the savior of not only his people, but those around him.

Throughout the book, Su was just trying to look for his dad approval. This book game me a deeper appreciation for my parents and especially my dad. They have worked so hard coming to America and giving me everything I have up until now.
I also think Nick and Gatsby shared a genuine friendship, Nick not only liked but also respected Gatsby – he felt that, like himself, Gatsby was an honest man who had tried his best to be a good person. 2. How was Jay Gatz’s childhood schedule consistent with the adult Gatsby’s behaviour? The clear schedule that Gatsby wrote in his youth – which Gatsby’s father shows to Nick after his demise – is the place in which young Gatsby wrote everything he wanted to achieve - it includes such items as “Be better to parents” – and demonstrates his constant need to better himself, whilst also providing us with a glimpse into what he was like as a child – eager, hard working and determined. This somehow mirrors his personality later on in life, shown through his pursuit of Daisy; even after the years that has passed he refuses to give up on her.
