Vladek fights hard for his freedom but loses his son, Richieu, in the process and his wife, Anja, after they became free. As Vladek gained freedom, he lost many allies along the way, and as he got older he stopped creating a deep connection with people because he knows that he will lose them.
Claude McKay wrote “If We Must Die” amid the violence and bloodshed of 1919, and in this poem he encourages his community to take action and to fight back. He wanted them to rally and fight for freedom after the loss that they experienced
We all experienced loss in our life to gain freedom for ourselves. Laila lost Mariam in the process, Vladek lost Richieu during the Holocaust, and McKay was witness to thousands of black people dying for freedom
What Is Literature? I believe that literature is written works that express emotion and help writers show how they view the world and the events that happen in it.
Why does Literature Matter? Literature matters because it is a way to show how people feel through words and like poems, stories and graphic novels.
