Give three specific details that the author includes to appeal to our sense of sight, touch and hearing.

Steinbeck has subliminally mentioned isolation and conflict that Curley’s wife’s creates with her soft hair; here it is quiet apparent, “Feel right aroun’ there an’ see how soft it is.” (Steinbeck 90). “Lennie’s fingers closed on her hair.” (Steinbeck 91). One can imagine Lennie running his hands through her soft hair with his calloused hand, which is so used to rough bunks and hay, Rough texture compared to softness is like darkness and light, cacophony and silence. The closed walls of the barn created the darkness inside while the light lingered outside. This reference to light and dark is a lot like the sounds during this scene but not quite the same.
It is a “place of beauty”, the perfect rural world and an absolute utopia where wildlife, birds and fish are abundant, where “prosperous farms” and magnificent forests thrive. Suddenly there is a sharp transition in the middle and the tone changes dramatically. The idyllic town is now ruled over by “strange stillness”, illness and death. The author deliberately parallels images of harmony and beauty with those of death and sickness and uses words that evoke strong emotional response. Carson provides many vivid and dark images of the town where balance of nature has been disturbed by human hands.

Murray’s “Driving Through Sawmill towns’, “Spring Hail” and Sean Doherty’s “Bra Boys” biography explores multiple themes of identity. The three texts explored are both linked to identity, showing isolation, a sense of community and finally belonging. This is done by the use of a variety of techniques and language features. The issue of isolating is explored in Murray’s “driving through sawmill towns” by showing the loneliness of the towns people in which the poem is set. This is portrayed through the quote “Evenings are very quiet, all round the forest is there”.
Gordon S. Barker in his book, In Fugitive Slaves and the Unfinished American Revolution: Eight Cases, 1848-1856 he contributes to the stories on American Revolution particularly in an effort to re-image and re-periodize the ‘grand American narrative’ of the U.S revolution by George Bancroft. The book is focused on the other side of the revolution i.e. the Black’s struggle for the war against slavery. For the common American man, the revolution and thus the war ended quite before when compared with the Revolution waged by the African slaves. The African Americans, united in their quest for creating ‘a perfect union’ which at its very earliest ended when the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified.
As was stated this idea is a conspiracy as there is no direct evidence to give it a strong foundation or validity in our time. The term “Slave Power” coined in 1864 in a book written by John Smith Dye entitled “History Of The Plots And Crimes Of The Great Conspiracy To Overthrow Liberty In America.” The term started off simply as the Slave Power (conspiracy was added in the modern era). In the book Dye alleges that since the time of Independence, the aristocrats of the South and politicians from the South have had an agenda to extend slavery to the Western United States and Latin America and thus increase their power, wealth, and influence in the United States. There are certain events that happened in Dye’s time that can show this idea was real. They can also prove the legitimate and real threat Slave Power posed, to Latin America.
Announced that race would eb the century’s most critical issue: “problme of 20th century is the problem of the color-line.” Took a direct attack against discriinatation, Jim Crow laws, lynching, and disenfranchisment. In 1903, in his famous book The Souls of Black Folk, Du Bois charged that Washington's strategy, rather than freeing the black man from oppression, would serve only to perpetuate it (first formal attack on Washington). Two years later, in 1905, Du Bois took the lead in founding the Niagara Movement, which was dedicated chiefly to attacking the platform of Booker T. Washington. But it was significant as an ideological forerunner and direct inspiration for the interracial NAACP, founded in 1909. Du Bois played a prominent part in the creation of the NAACP and became the association's director of research and editor of its magazine, The Crisis.
Lord Dunmore in an effort to gain more manpower promised freedom to all slaves fighting for the Rebels. The British then had over 800 slaves join British Forces. These concerns were spoken of with clear disagreement by one of our founding forefathers Thomas Jefferson who wrote in a draft of the Declaration of Independence about the King and slavery, Jefferson stated “he [the king of Britain] has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. this piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce: and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people upon whom he also obtruded them; thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit
Therefore the South and their political leaders were promoters of slavery. One of the most adamant pro-slavery politicians was John C. Calhoun. Calhoun even believed that slavery was actually great for slaves. The census of 1840 and other records showed that, northern states had abolished slavery. Needless to say, Calhoun was determined to make slavery legal in the new states, and believed that the north had motives behind their intentions to do otherwise.
