Second, the author clearly emphasizes on the division of social classes and the concentration of the wealth on business bearing individuals and particularly on banks and industries including a particularly ominous view at the ever reaching effects of the Great Depression. He’s views of social classes in that time where that the monsters were the wealthy people, the poor people were the oppressed and all the concentration of wealth was in total control of the big corporations. Lastly, he subtly talks about the causes of the economic evils, and the effect on the people. He viewed that the principal cause of the economic evils were the society and its individuals along with their actions and creations. The author of the Grapes of Wrath viewed that property was taken away from farmers because of the struggle between the individuals and the big corporations.
Casablanca forever Many times when we say or think of any word, automatically we relate to an image. Casablanca, for example, principally is associated with the place where U.S. presidents live. However, others like me think it is a great classic movie that was made during the Second World War in 1942. Casablanca is a black and white film that along the years has won the taste of the public. This has been made possible thanks to good music, excellent actors and an unpredictable story.
In the end, they managed it together and each of their hopes comes true. The novel is one of the best-known stories in American popular culture. Children like it because it is a kind of good story, full of fun characters and exciting adventures. Adults, in case of its field and history, also like the novel because they can read between. When we concern on the symbols in the novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is no longer an innocent fairy tale, it has underlying meanings that symbolize various ideas of political interpretations as evidenced in its intrinsic unsure and its relation with ironic portraits of America in that era.
Describe at least ONE idea that was worth learning about in the text. Explain why the idea was worth learning about in the text as a whole, using examples of visual and / or oral language features to support your ideas. In Slumdog Millionaire directed by Danny Boyle “Love conquers all” is an idea worth learning about. Boyle uses cinematography, dialogue & gesture and flashbacks to show this. Love conquers all is an idea worth learning about because you may come across it in many texts, it’s a universal idea and it’s appealing to us as an audience.

Poor harvests played a big part in causing the French Revolution since people were already angry with the King spending too much on himself and not enough on the country and then extreme weather such as snow and rain comes and causes the people of France to get even more annoyed even though the poor harvest was not the King’s fault. The poor harvests later caused the price of bread to shoot up which in turn forced people (especially people in the third estate) to spend more on bread and less on luxuries such as shoes and hats. This in turn affected most factory owners as they would’ve had to fire workers or lower wages of the current factory workers. This put unemployment at a very high rate due to factories having to fire workers and the people who did get fired would have to starve most days because they were not earning any money. This whole incident wouldn’t have been so bad if the Three Estates system was fairer since having all three estates paying the same amount of tax would enable the third estate to spend more on food such as bread instead of having the third estate paying the most tax and the first and second paying close to nothing.
The poem “The Hymn to the Aton,” by Akhenaton was filled with great sincere praises toward the Sun God for his creation of this magnificent world. However, after watching the documentary Egypt’s Golden Empire, these praises became incentives for wanting more from the Sun God. The poem “The Hymn to the Aton,” began as a piece of beautifully written literature that was very difficult to grasp. After reading it a few more times, the picture became clear and words came to life as though it was dancing on the pages. Akhenaton praised the Sun God dearly by its selfless act of creating every living thing on this world.
Immigrants and low class citizens have been treated poorly by the upper class American. In the film “Bread and Roses,” we see the exploitation and the low wages of the immigrants in their jobs, the rights to freedom of speech, and the respect to people’s job. Maya and the other janitors work very hard, harder than most high paid Americans, and get paid little to nothing. “The lucky sewing company workers got so angry when the boss’s daughter called the police on us because we wanted our back pay. They are the ones that owed us money, but they still used the police to kick us out!” (Ching Yoon Louie 50).
This never helps the poor look like normal people because the society starts hating them. There are always stories covered about the poor which sometimes even trick me. (need some evidence...to be researched........) Sometimes the media makes the poor look really good. A great example is Ted Williams who was homeless, a drug addict and an alcoholic but had a
