Machinery took jobs of many people but it also gave jobs. There were two major changes that happened to poor labourers that the farmer’s hot new machines, this causes poor people to lose their jobs.

The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson – A puzzling tale with a puzzling title An appropriate novel for this seminar? A tragedy? Mark Twain’s tale Pudd’nhead Wilson, first published as The Tragedy of Pudd’nhead Wilson, is a puzzling story that gives rise to many questions: Why did Twain call the story The Tragedy of Pudd’nhead Wilson, when the story ends happily for him and he is a minor character? Which literary genre does the novel belong to? Is it really a tragedy, as Twain calls it, or rather a comedy?
In an essay he wrote about his play Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller argues that a tragic hero is not necessarily one who is noble of birth. However, the tragic hero must have these traits: he must suffer, be doomed from the start and his decline inevitable, be basically noble in nature, and have free choice to some degree. Also, his inevitable fate must result from a tragic flaw, and his story must arouse fear and pity. If these qualities are truly what makes a tragic hero, then it can be said that Ethan Frome is a tragic hero, and, therefore, that his story is a tragedy. This can be said because Ethan Frome meets every requirement listed by Miller.
This was a sign of Mao's unwillingness to accept criticism, even if it was constructive. This shows the lack of communication between Mao and the people, his stubbornness overpowering common sense, and shows the early onset of corruption. The idea came, to get China forward thinking again. Small-scale industry was invoked into villages. Why was the Great Leap Forward programme a failure?
The effect of the free verse can create continuity, as this is all about one particular event, as well as emphasizing the anguish and pain of the boy. The title ‘Out, Out–’ has a violent tone as “Out” is a short and harsh sound. “Out” is repeated twice, separated with a comma which creates a pause. The dash at the end highlights the shortness and suddenness of life. The title is an allusion to the soliloquy in “Macbeth”, where Macbeth soliloquizes about the insignificant, bitter, fragile, and futility of life after he finds that his wife had committed suicide.
Also, many experts say that it fell because of the lack of heart the people had to the Empire, the rise of Christianity, it was too immense to govern and protect, the decline of the economy and jobs, the army being made up of mostly foreigners, and outside invaders. Thus, one can say that the Empire collapsed more internally than externally. The first reason why the Western Roman Empire fell was because the people that lived in it had a lack of heart in the Empire. People didn’t believe the Empire was worth saving anymore. As Strayer, Gatzke, and Harbison state in their textbook The Course of Civilization states “The basic trouble was that very few inhabitants of the empire believed that the old civilization was worth saving… the overwhelming majority of the population had been systematically excluded from political responsibilities.
Ironic Poe “The Cask of Amontillado” is a horrific short story, which revolves around the themes of revenge and pride. The use of irony conveys a reality different from appearance and gives the story a touch of comedy and originality. We find irony in the names of the characters, the scenery, the attire, and the dialogue Montresor has with Fortunato throughout the story. From the beginning, we can see the irony that Edgar A. Poe puts in his story. The name Fortunato would clearly imply that this is a man of good fortune, when actually he was about to face the end of his life.
“Colonialism destroyed the cultural patterns of production and exchange by which traditional societies in “underdeveloped” countries previously had met the needs of people.”(Lappe, p.184) Furthermore, the useable land that is left is not available to them. The land is owned by the past colonial countries, the United States of America and Europe. The colonist viewed third world countries agriculture as backwards and prehistoric, causing them to force their ideas of extracting wealth from their plentiful land. “Agriculture was no longer seen as a source of food for the local population, nor even as their livelihood.” (Lappe, p.185) Colonist forced many countries such as Africa, Asia and Latin America to give up their way of providing food for themselves, and instead produced cash crops under colonialism’s work programs. Cash crops were single crops the local population was forced to produce on their land, and give to the colonist, who would sell them at low prices.
Describing them as ‘a savage race’. Tennyson uses pathetic fallacy when describing the bleak landscape and ‘barren crags’ and also uses monosyllabic words to exaggerate the tedious turn Ulysses’ existence has taken. The rhythm is harsh and downbeat, ending with an even toned line to empathize the dullness of Ithaca. The tone is bitter and resentful, exaggerated by negative adjectives such as ‘unequal’ even toward his wife, whom he describes as ‘aged’ rather than loyal. In the next verse Ulysses compares his current life with his past adventures and successes.
There were still a lot of long term effects that were causing ill feeling towards the Tsar before Bloody Sunday even took place. The peasants were still feeling disappointed in the Tsar after the devastating impact of the famine across Russia during 1891, in which the government had, if anything, exacerbated the situation by continuing to force peasants to export the food they had, and leave themselves to starve. Once more, Nicholas the second had let them down, when he was supposed to be their protector. This is when people first began seriously having their doubts about the Tsar and his total authority. One of the other key long term causes was the industrial recession that was taking place after the “great spurt” within Russia.
