Snow Falling on Cedars explores the notions of love and loss as they relate to racism, responsibility, and injustice. Every character in the novel is both directly and indirectly affected by what happens during World War II. For the most part, characters neither take nor accept responsibility for their thoughts and actions, and thus the war becomes the blame.
The Book 1984 was published in June of 1949 by the British author George Orwell. However it was being written during the Second World War. This war had a tremendous effect on why the book was written, it was meant as a warning against future totalitarianism. It was an attempt at warning the public against this political view and how it could destroy the world. Despite his attempt many of what has been written in the book 1984 has become more than less true.
