all the light motif help

Hi!

I'm doing all the light this year and I'm just wondering whether I could say that at the end of the novel children are a motif celebrating those who move on from the war? Like Marie-Laure and Jutta both have children but Volkheimer and Frederick's mum are still kind of caught in the age of the war?

Thanks!

Great interpretation! I'm not sure if I would use the word 'motif' in this case - motifs are usually repetitive in nature, and it's usually a repeating idea throughout the body of a text. I suggest you use words like 'embodiment', 'symbol', 'manifestation', or 'realisation' instead (depending on the sentence, obviously!)
