At the beginning of chapter 9, Nick Carraway informs the reader upon the impact that Gatsby’s death and the ‘holocaust’-like aftermath of it has had upon him, through the quote "After two years," then, "I remember the rest of that day, and that night, and the next day". The days he is referring to are the ones after Gatsby’s demise – and how there was an endless flow of reports and policemen flocking to the mansion, creating a twisted, parodical version of his famed parties. However, it could be also considered not a parody, since the policemen and such care as much about Gatsby as his party-goers did beforehand – the sad truth of Gatsby’s life and the ‘American Dream’ as a whole. Nick, revealing his respect for Gatsby that has developed over the summer – showing character development throughout the story – worries that the reporters swarming the house care not about Gatsby and simply wish to turn his tragic death into a best-selling headline, filling their story with whispered rumours and degrading lies. Worse than this, Nick finds that nobody seems to be trying to validate or dismiss the rumours that are surrounding Gatsby’s death, finding himself alone as Gatsby’s only true friend –
Fahrenheit 451 The extraordinary experience of reading the novel Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury, is that although it was written in 1953 the author predicted a vivid description of the way things are in America today. The colorful characters in this book represent different examples of American culture and how this culture is addicted to electronic media means of communication and has a lack of self control. This fictional story projects almost sixty years into the future. The time period of this story is not clearly specified in the novel but it could easily be assumed that the story takes place during the new millennium. There are references to terrible crimes, nuclear weapons, political correctness,
If the government is agonist the people's feelings, then the people have the moral authority to change the government system which is also under the definition of democracy; for the people, to the people and by the people. Many nations like Nepal and Pakistan who were trying to practice aristocratic system were thrown by its own public revolution, but America and its alliance in the name of changing dictatorship inside the Iraq stayed over there for than six year without any strong political reason which is the matter of disagreement
Through any and every writing, an author has a point hidden within literary elements. With literary elements authors develop a style to their writing to prove the point they intended from the beginning. There are many various literary elements to make up a rhetorical situation, to develop a side of ideas, some very commonly used in especially rhetorical situations. Like allusion, hyperbole, rhetorical questions, hypophora, and commonly simile. Mohandas K. Gandhi and Henry David Thoreau speak of and develop similar government opinions and points, through their interpretations of Civil Disobedience through literary elements; they prove similar points of civil disobedience but with their own style of writing and use of rhetorical devices.
As a result, immigration policy has lost its independent polity agenda. [Therefore,] virtually no new immigration policies have been created separated from terrorism policies since 2001.” Particularly, illegal immigration has overlapped with growing concerns about national security. The first official immigration initiative by the US government since 9/11 was the enactment of the Real ID Act in 2005. This new legislation required that drivers’ licenses issued by states had to conform to national standards, thereby making it difficult for illegal immigrant s from obtaining the licenses without having to prove their legal status and residency in the US. This legislation, however, proved to have many loopholes around it for illegal immigrants to obtain drivers’ licenses regardless of their illegal status because the states were not obliged to conform to the standards.

Nalo Hopkinson’s Midnight Robber portrays a manifestation of various characteristics of postmodernism, such as irony, the incredulity of metanarratives, temporal distortion, pastiche, technoculture, hyperreality, intertextuality, metafiction and histographic metafiction, as well as characteristics of postcolonialism such as Orientalism, pluralism, identity, double consciousness, colonization and resistance. Typical of the chaotic nature of postmodern literature, the literary techniques utilized in Midnight Robber aim to mock the reality and logical sense of reason which is characteristic of the period of modernism. The irony of postmodernity denies a difference between what is real and what is appearance and even embraces incoherence and lack of meaning (Coletta, 2009). Therefore, irony is another vehicle through which the line between the real and unreal is blurred. In other words, ‘meaning’, through post modern irony is constructed through interpretation, rather than perceived or understood.
And the publication of Art Spiegelman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus: A Survival Tale (1986) “helped establish the term and the concept of graphic novels in the minds of mainstream public”. However, it is used more as a means to distinguish it from the traditional comic books with which it shares the story-telling medium in an attempt to give it a “legitimate literature status”. The French term “Brande Dessinée” is even employed instead of graphic novel, but it rather indicates the anxiety, or the preoccupation with the attempt to

According to Sen the system of cultural division is problematic as cultural and civilization are not the only point in focus for separation.
