In 1729, Ireland had a major problem of overpopulation. In the proposal, Swift introduces the problem when he says, “...the streets, the roads, and cabin doors crowded with beggars of the female sex, followed by three, four, or six children, all in rags…”. Swift expresses concerns about the issue and the reader can see this because he addresses the problem of overpopulation and poverty and shows understanding in the topic. Even though the proposal contains much satire, he is showing concern through his ideas of wanting the fix the problem. In the text we see the concern Swift shows when it says, “As to my own part, having turned my thoughts for many years upon this important subject and maturely weighed the several schemes of our projectors…”.
"A Modest Proposal" by Jonathan Swift is essentially a satire that addressed the issue of the Irish potato famine and poverty in general in the United Kingdom. He essentially proposes that famine and poverty could be reduced all while generating revenue by selling babies as food. Of course he is not serious however, as he proposes several rational alternatives towards the end of the proposal such as imposing a tax of the upper class that would help feed an clothe homeless people which it is clear that his writing has the probable intent of seeking attention from the crown to assist in these objectives. Swift 's ultimate purpose is to garner attention to the issue of poverty and hunger by shocking the reader with an appalling idea then appealing
abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble . . . ." But as Mr. Justice Holmes once said: "[T]he provisions of the Constitution are not mathematical formulas having their essence in their form; they are organic living institutions transplanted from English soil.
Derek Lee Schoenfeld PD 2 Huck Finn Final Essay Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is considered an American classic because of the controversy surrounding the book and the issues it addresses in the story. Many consider Twain a racist because of the use of the derogatory term nigger and the half-witted nature he gives to Huck Finn’s sidekick, Jim. Countless times in the story, Twain includes scenes where Jim asks the most simple and obvious questions. However, this only adds to the facade of stupidity Twain gives Jim which was Twain’s true intentions. Twain is an anti-racist, and rather than creating a story that explicitly criticizes the evils of slavery and racism, he portrays Jim as stupid to leave more of a subtle and lasting impression.
The UK’s constitution, once revered as the matchless constitution , has come under scrutiny in regards to whether the recent constitutional system that it holds is the best way to govern a country. The definition of a constitution can be stated as a “whole system of government of a country, the collection of rules which establish and regulate or govern the government” . The UK’s constitution is identified as an unwritten constitution, though not to be taken literally as the constitutional laws of UK can be found actually written but not necessarily all in the same place therefore a better description is stated as being “partly written and wholly uncodified” . It is said that the UK lacks codification compared to fellow countries like USA which do have a written constitution where the most important rules of their state can be found codified within a single document . What differentiates the UK constitution is that countries with written constitutions created them after conflicts
America, before it was the free and independent nation that it is today, was a British colony, subject to the laws and levies that King George passed. The original colonists were not unhappy under the British crown, but they craved representation in Parliament, where they could have a voice in the tariffs that would be imposed on the colonies. They were refused time and time again, until they lost hope in becoming a respected part of Britain’s domain. Together they stood in solidarity, and they boycotted British goods to symbolize their independent will and their wish to be recognized as an independent nation. Eventually their rebellion erupted into a war, which would end in America’s favor and see the colonies
Rhetorical Analysis Essay: A Modest Proposal Dr. Jonathan Swift places himself as a villain who is willing to do evil deeds to answer hard questions. What pushes Swift to write the essay “A Modest Proposal” is Ireland's economic and social problems. In this satirical essay Swift highlights the problems in Ireland and gives a sarcastic solution to make people feel guilt. Swift’s use of dehumanizing language is used to make the reader oppose Swift’s modest proposal. For example on page 2 Swift says “so as to render them plump, and fat for a good table.
Another example of metaphor in the novel is how Mr. Twain depicts the characters to enunciate his views of the bigotry of social norms pushing the reader in a sense to understand what he means. Huckleberry Finn with his innocence and Jim with a thirst for equality metaphorically portray the minorities, Pap the trope of humanity that are corrupted and deprived by those that are uncivilized. “You’re educated, too, they say—can read and write. You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t?
Rationale: According to English B higher, I studied Fitzgerald’s novel “The Great Gatsby”. In order to establish my interpretation of the novel, I decided to write a letter as my written assignment. The task requires to depict the theme of the novel which is the noble deterioration in the upper class society. A letter would be the best approach, specifically for a character like Nick Carraway who showed his feelings regarding Daisy’s act to run away from Eat Egg during Gatsby’s funeral. I used persuasion in the method of asking question in the text in order to make Daisy feel sorry for herself from what she have done regarding her actions.
