The conditions were so bad many people ended up unable to work due to sickness or death from either the meat or exhaustion. Sinclair made it clear that the poor peasants were the hardest working and received nothing in return. His passion in writing is so deep for the lower class folks when he expresses the value of each individual in Jurgis’ group and their drive to keep
An example of some of the things that George Henderson says in his paper about poverty is, “Poverty is staying up all night on' cold nights to watch the fire knowing one spark on the newspaper covering the walls means you’re sleeping child dies in flames. In summer poverty is watching gnats and flies devour your baby's tears when he cries.” In the novel Enrique’s Journey, by Sonia Nazario poverty is everywhere, some places are just worse than others like families living in shacks, only being able to eat one meal a day. These authors and others are pointing out an indisputable fact. Poverty is everywhere and everyone needs to be doing something about it. Sonia Nazario describes a very graphic picture of children without one or any parents, food, shelter, and clothing, which many Americans choose to ignore and go about their business like it doesn’t happen here and around the world.
(The steam shovel did work for forty men.) Milton was so horrified that he ordered to take them off and hire forty mean instead. By 1936, the worst of the Great Depression was over. Milton was glad that no workers in Hershey had lost their jobs. (Simon 35 and Sutcliffe
Chapter 21 discussed how abnormalities of characters are a big sign to show how important they are. While reading this chapter, so many characters came up in my head, whether they were in books, tv shows/ movies, or games. These characters did have abnormalities that set them apart from the rest of society, however, made them obvious as the main character and hero/heroine of the story. So, when I read this chapter, I actually had an "aha!" moment.
Breakfast mostly consists of a barren piece of bread and watered down tasteless coffee that comes with an opportunity for the Kapo to harass you, beat you or even kill you if you drop food or try to take extra. The Kapo were the guards at the concentration camps. It seems that every passing moment is an opportunity for the guards to beat or kill you. Morning roll call, line up along with the dead bodies that didn’t make it through the night that the prisoners would have to drag out of the barracks. Stand at attention in rain and snow forbidden to talk or move, some prisoners have been known to drop dead right there from sickness, fatigue or malnourishment.
Discuss with reference to a soap opera of your choice and a reality TV program. Television has thousands of programs that have different features that make them a certain genre. Today two of the most watched and easily recognized genres on television are soap operas and reality television. The soap opera genre originated in America in the 1930’s and was first found on radio, and it wasn’t until the 1950’s that soap operas were first transmitted on television (Casey, et al, 2002). A soap opera is an ongoing work of fiction usually concerned with everyday life.
Mainly because William Bryan was too afraid to promote most of the populist platform although his speeches were rather powerful in there own right. The tin man in the Wizard Of Oz is supposed to symbolize the eastern worker. In the story, the tin man was found rusted up and immobile and according to Littlefield that was the same the depression that went on in the 1890s where factories started closing down and left hundreds of workers were living on the streets unemployed. The scarecrow represented the common Midwestern farmer, very smart but equally gullible. Usually looked down upon and made fun of.
John Smith said, "...one amongst the rest did kill his wife, powdered [i.e., salted] her, and had eaten part of her." ( The starving time pg.2) This shows that the colonists were so daspreat for food that they did anything to obtain it. Not only did the colonists spend most of their time looking for gold but they also had little agricultural experiance. To make things worse, the land of which they setteled on was swampy and desease infested. John Smith said, "The colonists, a group with little agricultural experience and weighted with gentry, instead found a swampy and disease-ridden site."
For instance, Mr Collins long, pompous speeches help the reader to realise his character within the novel and how he is a person who is full of pride in himself (which is one of the themes of the novel). Chapter 19 also contains authorial intervention. The authorial intervention in this chapter helps to not only tell the story but commentates the dialogue of the characters “she could not use the short pause he allowed in any attempt to stop him farther, and he continued.” The authorial intervention seems to show Austen’s annoyance towards Mr Collins who seems to constantly talk and helps make the reader sympathise with Elizabeth for being on the other end of his constant speeches. In all, through Austen’s use of the third
“The Yellow Wallpaper” Reading “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Perkins Gilman is enough to make anyone feel crazy enough to relate to the story’s narrator. This story effectively uses fast paced descriptive language to describe the main focus of the story, which is the wallpaper. This constant recurrent picture is analyzed over and over to the point where it is nearly impossible to picture the vivid details of the ever-changing design. With this repetitive text, I believe that Gilman is trying to simultaneously keep the reader entertained, while offering firsthand looks into the obsessive mind of the narrator. Toward the beginning, the story maintains a typical gothic feel.
