ATLANTIS MYTH: A motif common in mythology in which an ancient, wise, or powerful civilization once existed in a past golden age but floods destroyed it. Plato popularized the myth in his works Timeaus and Critias, where he describes the arrogant island of Atlantis as an adversary of Greek civilization 9,000 years before his own day, but the gods disfavor the island's , and they submerge it into the Atlantic Ocean. Although Plato's references are brief, they have inspired some archeologists to link it with the Island of Thera (which was destroyed by volcanic erruption that triggered tidal waves devastating Minoan civilization in 1900 BCE). Likewise, they have inspired fiction writers to produce a number of later fantastic works. The allegorical aspects of the island influence Francis Bacon's New Atlantis, Thomas More's Utopia, and Stephen Lawhead's Taliesin. Among the Inklings, it plays a part in C.S. Lewis's The Magician's Nephew, where dust from Atlantis serves as a component of magical rings, as well as in Lewis's space trilogy. C.S. Lewis also uses it as a comparison to being overwhelmed by grief in his autobiography, Surprised by Joy. Charles Williams plays with the motif in Taliessin Through Logres. Other like J.R.R. Tolkien use the myth indirectly, as Tolkien uses it as an analogue in The Silmarillion, in which Númenor was a huge island in the Sundering Sea, west of Middle-Earth. These Númenorians grew obsessed with the search for immortality, and eventually their culture died when their island sank. In medieval legends, other analogues to the Atlantis myth include the legends of Logres and Lyonesse (which medieval tales located in the Atlantic Ocean southwest of Cornwall and Landsend), and older appear in Mesopotamian and Hebrew myth such as in the Old Testament accounts of the flood. A common erroneous claim is that flood myths are universal world-wide, though it actual point of fact, legends in which the world or a civilization die in floods primarily appear in cultures in geographic areas subject to regional flooding. Areas without such flooding do not tend to have Atlantis myths or flood myths.
“Salvation” by Langston Hughes and “Reunion” by John Cheever are two short stories, both written by acclaimed authors, describing a life changing experience each author had at a young age.
Broadly, some view the Bible as teaching that a man who has experienced a genuine conversion can, by his own will, turn from the faith and forfeit his salvation.
But not really saved." this leaves the reader curious and wanting more
The opening and conclusion of the story are a dichotomy of each other.
This means that the opening and conclusion contradict each other.
The opening says he was saved from sin, but in the conclusion he is crying because he didn't physically see Jesus and stopped believing in him.
The tone of the essay was informal all the way through.
The narrative was written in a light-hearted, casual and simple style.
First person point of view
The language used in this story is largely colloquial
Not many difficult words were used, mostly informal words of a young teen.
Hughes presents the image of 3 types of people in society.
Those who believe in God, Those who go with the flow, and Those who do not believe in God.
Hughes is inspiring the reader to find out who they are by presenting these three types of people.
The Problem or
Hughes made his work interesting by giving the audience a hint at the final outcome.
Although the ending was not as strong as it could have been because foreshadowed at the beginning of the story.
Problem and Enhancer
The introductory sentence hooked the reader by outlining the final outcome.
On the other hand this made the story predictable because the introductory sentence foreshadowed the ending.
Have you ever been peer pressured into doing something just to fit in?
Example of Empathy
"So I decided that maybe to save further trouble, I'd better lie, too, and say that Jesus had come, and get up and be saved."

Salvation is obtained when you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God sent His only son, Jesus to die for your sins and God raised him from the dead ....
Yes, on “that day”, many will stand before God and hear Him say, “I know you not; depart from me.” (Matthew 7:23 KJV) The assumption is all professing Christians want salvation.
Correspondingly, salvation is the fundamental goal of religion, as it is the process of riding evil and disorder through definitive transformation (Livingston 312).
