Introduction Example Night by Elie Wiesel is about a young man in the holocaust trying to survive the death camps. There are three major complications in his survival, which are the Kapos taking his new shoes, the vicious beatings by superior officers, and his father constantly needing Elie’s protection. One unfamiliar word in this portion of the book is oppressive.
In the novel Night, a major complication is that prisoners are not allowed to keep their new shoes. If Elie loses his shoes, then it might cause disease. The narrator states, “But we had to get up whenever a Kapo came in to check if, by chance, somebody had a new pair of shoes. If so, we had to hand them over. No use in protesting: the blows multiplied and, in the end, one still had to hand them over” (Wiesel 38). In this citation, Elie, the narrator, is describing what happens to prisoners that have new shoes. They are not allowed to keep them, and if they do not give them to the SS officers, then they will be beaten. Once they are beaten, the shoes will be taken anyway. Since Elie describes the scene with the shoes so vividly, one can see that taking shoes away from the prisoners is a major complication. Complication example
Unfamiliar Word Example One unfamiliar word in Night is encumbered. Encumbered means burden or weigh down somebody or something; to hamper or impede. The narrator states, “Nobody ever felt encumbered by his presence” (Wiesel 1). No one feels hampered by the character that Elie is describing. Encumbered’s part of speech is a verb, which means that it is an action word.
