Reviewing Elements of Chapter 12 of the Disappearing Spoon Sam Kean, the author of the New York Times Bestseller the Disappearing Spoon, opens the 12th chapter of his narrative by stating that “The periodic table embodies our frustrations and failures in every human field: economics, psychology, the arts, and… politics” (Kean, 203). Kean, being an english and physics major, observes that the periodic table, our most treasured accomplishment as a race as he puts it, is much more than just a jumble of random letters pertaining to a specific scientific field but, instead, a focal point of human interaction throughout history. Kean’s narrative, as a whole, focuses on the many facets of the periodic table including its scientific and nonscientific attributes, providing the reader with a new perspective to this vast array of elements; a social perspective. Chapter 12 of Kean’s bestseller focuses on how politics had a major influence on the development of the periodic table. The majority of the chapter takes place during the mid-1900s and therefore, as one might imagine, anti-Semitism was omnipresent.

Emerson next launched into his "Natural History of Intellect" series of lectures at Harvard University. “Mine are the night and morning, The pits of air, the gulf of space, The sportive sun, the gibbous moon, The innumerable days. I hide in the solar glory, I am dumb in the pealing song, I rest on the pitch of the torrent, In slumber I am strong” (Song of Nature 1-8). Whitman was an iconoclast, breaking new ground in abandoning rhyme and meter over the use of free verse, in opposition to the structured rigidity of the European poets of the time.

Bunyan creates an allegory of this paradigm shift critiquing the 17th century courts salacious attitudes as well as justifying Oliver Cromwell’s puritanic restoration period. Written more than 400 years after Bunyan’s time the powerful warnings against the dangers of totalitarian society within Orwell’s 1984 were extremely prevalent within its contextual period. 1984 a novel illustrating a great imbalance of power between the individual and the totalitarian regime is a timeless dystopian text so removed from society and hyper real that it is labelled a canon of modern times and shares countless attributes with Pilgrims Progress.

Gwyneth Roberts says in her article about Nineteen Eighty-Four that, “Some of Orwell’s Newspeak vocabulary (Newspeak itself, Big Brother, doublethink) has entered the English language; certainly his vision of a drab totalitarian future has entered the general consciousness, although it is difficult to know whether his warning [have] been fully understood” (Roberts). George Orwell's dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, presents his defeatist perspective on modern society formed by his experiences in life, his experiences in the historical wars which he participated in, and his knowledge of Joseph Stalin. Many characteristics of Nineteen Eighty-Four put it under the dystopian genre, but two continuously stand out: a worshipped figurehead and a dehumanized state. Big Brother, the worshipped figure of Nineteen Eighty-Four has a, “is [always] watching you” (Orwell 6) every citizen of Oceania with a strong, “black mustachio’d face” (Orwell 6) and, “dark eyes” (Orwell 6) that look deep into the soul. This more symbolic than physical leader represents the face of the party, also the antagonist group of Nineteen Eighty-Four, who ultimately control Oceania.
