Surname 2 A Shared Theme between Two Works Introduction The presence of shared themes in masterpieces of different authors is not an intended practice pushed by lack of originality but an inevitable coincidence usually fuelled by the many common things that people share or manifest in their day-to-day interactions.

However, the process of recovery does not seem friendly. It costs a good deal of sacrifice ranging from the sacrifice of money, relationship, time not sparing the sacrifice of self.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
