Finally, a cartoon about the Occupy Wall Street movement describes how the truth can mislead and warp meaning, thus creating perspectives that generate diverse and provocative insights. The role reputation plays is an idea that influences perceptions relevant to conflicting perspectives. In The Justice Game, Robertson accentuates his own perspective by juxtaposing the more progressive attitudes of his side of the case. Sarcastically, Robertson writes, referring to Judge Michael Argyle’s “novel campaign to end burglary by sentencing burglars to prison for life.”The word ‘novel’ provides sarcasm from the beginning, by discrediting Judge Michael Argyle QC, and pointing out that Argyle is a failed politician, ‘whose judgeship was a career consolation for the Tory MP he had tried several times to become’. Hence, Robertson’s perceptions influence the readers’ mind, which is exactly what he wants, and he continues to sway the reader’s perspective.
How do you respond to the view that in the stories in The Bloody Chamber, Angela Carter presents a sinister distortion of family relationships?

The Crucible Essay Question 7 Discuss the importance of the themes order and disorder, guilt and innocence, and good and evil. Set in Salem in North America, in 1962 Arthur Miller’s The Crucible is a chilling play that draws parallels to the historical witch-hunts of 1962. Inspired by the McCarthy era Miller is deeply reflective in his ideas about good and evil, and the hysteria that one individual causes in a town that is gripped by superstition, paranoia and malice. The Crucible is a thought provoking omnipresent modern literary masterpiece that raises many imperative issues regarding the role of the individual in society. Miller has portrayed the community of Salem as a town tainted by enigmatic irony as a result of the role reversal of good and evil, due to greed and autocratic power, aggravated by sexual repression, themes that are still prevalent in society today.
Miller is not suggesting that these trials separated the pure from the impure or evil, but if fact created them by punishing the innocent. Miller’s colourful use of irony and conciseness in the title expresses his attitude towards not only the Salem witch trials but the political circumstances of McCarthy he had found himself tangled

Good morning teachers. These aspects are explored through either the excerpts of ‘Cloudstreet’, ‘The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith’ or the advertisement of ‘Nolan’s Cheddar Cheese.’ Distinctively visual images are used by the producers of each text to convey the context of the world being depicted. ‘Cloudstreet’ by Tim Winton written in 1991 focuses on gambling and poor working conditions while ‘The Cant of Jimmie Blacksmith’ by Thomas Keneally written in 1970 explores the use of alcohol. Finally the concept of strength is portrayed through the advertisement of ‘Nolan’s Cheddar Cheese’.

In the essay "Being Zack Morris," Chuck Klosterman describe reality through the precarious lens of Saved by the Bell. He argues that some elements of pop culture, such as Fleetwood Mac songs and Saved by the Bell, can illustrate how important things are inevitably cliché. Klosterman, in his book Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, conveys this idea of post-modernism and how individuals view their world and reality. Postmodernism is a theory that involves the reappraising of the modern assumption about culture, identity, history or language. Klosterman also writes using hyper reality, which distorts the reality it depicts or does not in fact depict anything with real existence at all, but which nonetheless comes to constitute reality.
In "A Barred Owl", the speaker uses words like "domesticate" when discussing terror, to bring the happenings of the poem closer to the reader's idea of home. Wilbur's writing is much more grotesque and uncut than Collins', in that his diction emphasizes phrases like, "eaten raw" (12), and "her darkened room" (2). In contrast, the diction in "The History Teacher" is centered around innocence and hope, creating a sense of security in the history teacher's lies. "took place in a garden" (11), and "white picket fences" (18), emphasize the speaker's sense of homely-ness and hope in
