In this poem the cultures are divided because of wealth and power. In stanza 1 the poet clearly builds up a sense of his anger at the continuing injustice. As he walks through District six, once so familiar to him, he feels an outsider. He begins his poem with short monosyllabic words, ‘small round stones’, which adds a feeling of sharpness to the tone which suggests his anger. In addition, the onomatopoeia word ‘click’ emphasises his anger because of his sharp aggressive ‘ck’ sound.
Some of his example he used are, Jesus’ saying, what Thomas Jefferson said, Adolf Hitler and so on. Also, he gives some bitter facts that black people faced by white people, such as humiliation, which makes his argument away from being biased. Also, he has used a peaceful and sound language to show his credibility to make readers be attached to his letter. We can pretty clearly see the warrant of his letter; which basically focuses of how dreadful it is to differentiate between people based on their skin color. All he wants is that the blacks and whites live together peacefully in a one country as
How does Steinbeck explore different attitudes to black people in the novel? Steinbeck explores 1930s America through out his novel and revels the different attitudes toward black people show by different social classes, he achieves this by using one of his characters named “Crooks” as a device through out his novel and shows the different emotional effects of the racism treatment people had to endure on everyday life bases. The first thing which we are informed about is the fact that the boss decided to take his anger out on the stable buck when he realizes that George and Lennie were late. “Ya see the stable buck’s a nigger” the use of word “nigger” indicates the fact that this is how Crooks is know, and that people prefer to identify him by his race instead of his name. The word “nigger” is also designed to make the reader feel inferior and ashamed of the way the character has been treated.
Even from the opening of the play the Birlings are presented as a selfish middle/upper class family with friends, Gerald, also of high class, so they fit their stereo type for their social status. One of the main methods priestly uses to present the selfishness of the family is dramatic irony; it is used throughout the play and in Mr Birlings speeches particularly dramatic irony is used strongly which priestly uses to show how selfish Mr Birling is and used to humiliate people like the birlings, and by seeing the birlings being able to relate to them and seeing how you really are. In the play we see sheilas lack of consideration for working class people we see this when she gets eva smith fired because she didn’t like the way she was looking
What do the war and the death of Rip’s wife have in common in terms of how Rip and the colonialists will live the rest of their lives? Explain. 5. One of the hallmarks of Irving’s humor is his use of inflated diction (pompous, high-flown language) to describe commonplace things. For example, rather than simply saying that Rip is “lazy,” or that he “hates work,” Irving states that Rip has “an insuperable aversion to all kinds of profitable labor.” Now that you have read the story, go back and find two more examples of Irving’s use of inflated diction.
However, yesterday's outrage illustrated that such debates are mainly opportunities to enforce the compensatory victimhood of "reverse racism". In the Telegraph, Toby Young consulted his dictionary, and found Abbott's remark to be the very definition of racism. After many hours of tweeting and ratcheting up media coverage, blogger Harry Cole appeared on Sky News to lament those who "use race as a political tool". The insistence on an apology evinces a new standard of racial sensitivity among rightwing commentators. Racist jokes are always "taken too seriously", but Abbott's sentence is offensive, no contextualisation allowed.
Neat People vs Sloppy People In her essay, Britt makes a comparison and contrast between neat people and sloppy people. She compares these two kinds of people giving a tone of humor “neat people are lazier and meaner than sloppy people” (Britt, p. 242) and a little bit of sarcasm in her contrast, “while sloppy people are the result of their extreme moral rectitude.” (Britt, p. 242) By saying this, Britt introduces us to her essay where she follows to list the similarities and differences between neat people and sloppy people. She tells the readers how the sloppy people have these ideals that one day they are going to get organized, while neat people like to relax so they just get rid of clutter the fastest way possible so that they do not have to waste any time doing it later. Britt wrote this essay in which the reader can feel identified with the subject, because the reader will feel compelled to choose either the side of the neat people or the side of the sloppy people. She calls neat people insensitive in the first sentence of the last paragraph she says “Near people cut a clean swath through the organic as well as the inorganic world.
In the poem "Two Scavengers..." the poet Ferlinghetti uses various language, techniques and sentence structure to create effects on the reader. I believe the poet is trying to show the differences between the lives of the rich and the lives of the poor, whilst also showing that America, which is meant to be a rich and just country is not as excellent as it appears to be. Many readers can immediately see the differences in the culture between the two classes by simply looking at the title. From the word "Scavengers", we assume that these bin men are unstylish, foul-smelling and in poverty. One reason for this is because when we think of a scavenger, some readers would instantly think of tramps, who forage through people's bins and beg on the street just to get the necessities they need.
28) In this confrontation the difference between the social classes are shown. It shows how Tom looks down on gorge just because he is poor, and how Tom thinks that because he has a higher social status and because he is rich has the power to treat him badly. Tom’s self center and prepotent attitude is shown in the dialogue, and thus representing the moral and social decay that the wealthy people had due to their excesses. In conclusion Fitzgerald exclude the middle class as a critique to the extremes in the social classes, because he wanted to show the contrast between them and the repercussions the social class had on the characters. Through the novel the duality between the rich and the poor is always present, and the effects of the extremes and the insatiable aim of wealth is represented by the valley of ashes.
It shows how black Africans were denied a true identity, were considered less than human, and were treated as mere objects by the state. The voice in the poem is sarcastic throughout, and the warning at the end of the poem is a clear sign of a call to resistance. The fact that the poem is written as a legal letter is effective as this reinforces how strictly regulated life was under the Apartheid regime. This also evokes a stern and depersonalised tone in the poem, which further reflects the harsh reality of life for the oppressed at that
