prompt: Night is more than simply a day-by-day testimony of Elie Wiesels experiences during the Holocaust. It is a well-crafted work of literature. The scholar Lawrence Langer has written of Wiesels memoir:
Wiesel’s account is ballasted with the freight of fiction: scenic organization, characterization through dialogue, periodic climaxes, elimination of superfluous or repetitive episodes, and especially an ability to arouse the empathy of his readers, which is an elusive ideal of the writer bound by fidelity to fact.
Although this is a work of non-fiction, how has Wiesel constructed his narrative to draw the reader in and make lasting impressions? How has Wiesel used the freight of fiction to shape the themes and ideas in Night?
[You should identify at least two literary techniques and possibly morewhich may or may not be in the list from Langer above. You should then demonstrate the effect of these techniques on the reader, as well as show how they support Wiesels larger themes in the book.]
