There was only a simple law, and that was to not read books as well as think, making “the mind drink less and less.” This doesn’t seem much of a sacrifice because society was filled with far more excitement than literature could offer. Meanwhile, new technology helped people do everyday chores and made life simpler, leaving more time for fun. Like Beatty said, “Life is immediate, the job counts, and pleasure lies all about after work.” Entertainment ruled their society. The parlor walls seem like a god compared to our TVs. The seashell radios are convenience at its best.
Gatsby's social standing allowed him to be generous, because everyone expected it of him after attending or hearing about one of his lavish parties. Nick was below the high social standings of Tom, Daisy, and Jordan, and also below the lower social standing of Gatsby, but members of both classes liked and trusted him. As Nick said in chapter one of The Great Gatsby, Tom wanted Nick to like him as well. Somehow, Nick could transcend the barriers of certain classes, which made it easy for anyone to trust him, whether it is Tom with talking about his mistress, or Gatsby revealing his true identity. Wealth played a major part in The Great Gatsby.
Aphra "approached Anys with a mixture of fear and awe, and perhaps some envy." p39 She "knows more than we do" Aphra's sees her as having "too much pride...for an orphan" and is jealous of her sexual attractiveness. SO, The point I would get from this section is that Anna is impressed by Anys. Specifically, she is impressed by her willingness to help others. She realises that the knowledge she has is something to be grateful for (although at his stage she is not willing to pursue it) and she accepts that there is something positive about Anys.
To me a very good book is exciting, suspenseful, and funny the whole way through. Some people would say that this book is sexist because of how Miles and Phelps talk to and about girls. But really that’s the way guys are, and when Miles is with Angie he is nothing but nice to her. Miles’s idol is also a girl so that would make no since if he was sexist against girls. I like the friendship between Miles and Phelps because they get closer as the book goes on.
From this, the morally sound character, Stan, tells the audience that stereotyping people is wrong, but it is also good to be cautious of certain things. This doesn’t just appeal to one argument; it takes both viewpoints and acknowledges each one as if both are equally important. This kind of show plays a big impact on our lives because it teaches us how to be a better person. I myself have learned much from South Park, and each time a reminder is needed I just look back and have myself a nice laugh or
This portrays that he is confident around women and is not scared of curly even though he is the boss’s son. Curly’s wife does not mind as she craves for the attention of the other men as she doesn’t receive it from her own husband. Another good quality slim posses is the understanding of friendship, When George tells Slim that him and Lennie travel together, Slim seems abit shocked , “Maybe everybody in the whole damned world is scared of each other’’ This conveys that there is a problem in society in those days and people find it hard to travel together due to a lack of trust so that’s why ‘’scared of each other’’ is said. Slim possess the knowledge of knowing what is wrong with society and understands it so that’s why he doesn’t find George and Lennie travelling together a bad thing. That could have been one of his roles In the novel to critise society because people are only known to travel together or don’t have anyone to travel with.
Another good human quality is shown through the quality of wealth. Daisy from The Great Gatsby is seen to only value money because of the proper and settled life she wants to live. This is why she leaves Gatsby and marries Tom, which is contrary from the meaning of a human being. The novel I am the Messenger portrays the value of money differently than The Great Gatsby. The author shows how Ed Kennedy brings happiness in the Tatupu family by giving them a little gift.

Despite drawbacks with traditional gender roles, characters of The Grapes of Wrath and The Color Purple find ways to improve their lives in various areas through
"Although speakers expected their spouse to understand them better than strangers, accuracy rates for spouses and strangers were statistically identical. This result is striking because speakers were more confident that they were understood by their spouse," as said in a study by, author Kenneth Savtsky. Couples sometimes may think that they understand each other but, it is so easy to be misunderstood, even in a close relationship. I totally agree with the article in that, married people tend to get preoccupied,
