This essay is an attempt to correlate the dystopian environment of Fahrenheit 451 with today's culture. Fahrenheit 451 gives its readers examples of the shear lack of motivation to read. The lack of motivation is encouraged by government's law and technological influence. The population of Fahrenheit 451 is fearful of government wrath. This fear leads to the inevitable trepidation of books themselves.
In the novel Triage written by Scott Anderson, both Ahmet Talzani and Joaquin Morales seem to embody a fatalistic view of life, one in which reasons have to be created. Triage is ultimately a novel where there is a lack of hope. After Marks incident in Kurdistan we are instantly made to feel like the worst is yet to come with the use of strong and colourful language. Hope is distinguished when the whereabouts of Colin is unknown, and throughout Marks recovery there are constantly reminders that Mark will most likely never recover. Anderson shows that war has a damning effect on war journalists as well as soldiers, and that their loved ones and families are also heavily affected.
Vonnegut has introduced a world in which people have been taught to not only dislike inequality, but to fear it, "'pretty soon we'd be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn't like that would you?' 'I'd hate it, said Hazel.'" (7). It is important to note that George brings up the dark ages which is generally considered, by laymen, to be a bleak period of time where not much in the way of human progress was made.
this very discontent feeling would further add to the very isolation the Glaspell is trying to portray. How is anyone to feel connected when they much live with a foul personality? “He was a hard man” (Glaspell 181); “Like a raw wind that gets to the bone” (Glaspell 181). He gave his wife a dispirited sense of being. She probably felt smothered by his bleak nature and with the fact that the farmhouse was too isolated for anyone to want to visit, Mrs. Wright was left alone.
The Great Gatsby Chapter 2 Unlike the other settings in the book, the valley of ashes is a picture of absolute desolation and poverty. It lacks any sort glamour and lies halfway between West Egg and New York. The valley of ashes symbolizes the moral decay and reality disguised by the ‘fairytale palaces’ of the Eggs. The valley is created by industrial dumping and home to the poor and just basically is everything the ‘American dream’ isn’t. Doctor T. J. Eckleburg’s ‘gigantic’ eyes gazing down from their billboard makes the reader wonder what significance they hold in the story.
This is highlighted with "shut", "bleached" and "dark-clothed". The cleaver use of "shut shops", "sun blinds", "sovereigns", "kings and queens" compounds a critisasation of authority, Larkin does this through sibilance. Larkin then presents the loss in the next stanza with the repetition of the theme of innocence this is highlighted with the quotation "dresses", "never such innocence", "little" and "never such innocence again". This created a sense of destruction and how the war has taken the innocence of so many young people. Also the use off an oxymoron "restless silence" foreshadows the tragedy that is to come.
Saying the night is "dreadful, very dreadful" could be interpreted as Victor's homosexuality. This, at the time of being published, was still a crime punishable by death and these hidden desires we see Victor show could be seen as a 'darker' aspect to his psyche, even if a modern audience would see this as nothing out of the ordinary. We also see a broader view of this dark nature through the story of the DeLacey's. The DeLacey's who feel only dread at the sight of the monster, drive him out after he has helped them with their day to day occupations and leave him heartbroken.

They lack morals and are filled with emptiness that resulted from the constant money chase throughout their lives. The new rich are also represented through the ashes. They shower themselves in selfish pleasures and have no care for others in life. These ashes also represent the poor who additionally lack morals as they live in silent agony. Not only do the ashes have a symbolic meaning in the book but also embody the hollowness of people in the world today.
