Books are used constantly as symbols throughout The English Patient. At the beginning, the stairs that lead to Almasy’s room is damaged, so Hana uses books to create new stairs. This symbolizes how books can be used to reach out to others. Hana loves reading books and uses them as a way out for an escape as she engages herself in the story. Maps are used in the book symbolically. Maps identify places and give them a name asserting ownership over the land. The villa, where all four people live, also symbolizes as a place of healing and shelter for protection. Before a bomb attacked it, the villa has been a hospital for soldiers to get well and to boost up their confidence. Almasy, Caravaggio, Kip, and Hana, all come from different countries and pasts, have been affected by the war and the villa is the place where they don’t feel prejudiced. The villa has previously been a nunnery and a hospital, places of healing for the soul and for the body. It is a place where there are no boundaries and people from all over the world can live in happily.

my first sentence is awkward. can u help me. and also i used the word affected but is it "effected" i'm suppose to use or no? Your use of "affected" is correct.

I don't understand the use of "prejudiced" in one of the last sentences. Are you saying they don't feel prejudiced against other people? Or that they don't feel the prejudgment of others toward themselves? It's not clear.
