Ultimately, the central purpose of an author’s novel is to engross the reader, by writing in a genre and movement that is appropriate the book. Appropriately, Kurt Dinan engages the reader with both a Mystery genre and Postmodernist elements in his novel, Don’t Get Caught. Postmodernists believe that traditional authority is false and corrupt, and the central theme of Don’t Get Caught is that the powerful students play pranks and humiliate the less influential students. There exists a social elite club known as the Chaos Club that plays pranks on the school and faculty, and nobody can figure out the leader of the club is or who the members’ are.
Words speak louder than Action The usage of language is really important in the story, the author starts his/ her expression of ideas by using languages from which reader can able to identify the feeling or emotions of a character. Using proper and meaning full language is highly effected on stories.

Atwood represents the power of language in the ruling class, gender role, and race.
The saddening thing is, that the whole scenario started because Mayella attempted to seduce Tom, and her father found out. Filled with rage, Mr. Ewell beat his daughter, he found it unacceptable that his daughter fancied a black man. Then, he claimed that Tom raped his daughter to cover everything up. There are even cases such as Tom’s happening to this day, such as the case of Miguel Angel Peña Rodriguez Vs. Colorado. The jury was corrupted by bias thoughts which resulted in an unfair trial.
Tom is seen to be a very racist person, and that is just from what he said about one book. Tom does not care about women either, he is a sexist person who only cares about himself. He broke Myrtle’s nose just because she kept saying Daisy’s name even though he told her to stop. More proof of Tom’s sexism comes from his affair with Myrtle. If Tom cared about Daisy he would not be seeing other women, it was also revealed that Myrtle was not the first person Tom had an affair with, which just proves this even further.
Symbols often play large roles in connecting stories with readers. Writers use symbols to refer to larger ideas, meanings and feeling, allowing readers to think and further connect to the characters in the story. In Lawrence and Lee’s Inherit the Wind it is shown that a symbol is a concrete thing that represents something abstract, something completely different from itself to show an idea. In the book there are three big symbols, Drummond’s “Golden Dancer”, Darwin’s Origin of Species, and monkeys. Firstly, Drummond’s “Golden Dancer” is an apparent symbol in Inherit the Wind.
These social issues are most commonly shown through the protagonist’s direct encounter(s) with the societal problems. Ron, in Dallas Buyers Club struggles with the SDI AIDS and is constantly scrutinized for it and disowned by his co workers. When little was known about the disease during this time and socially it was known as a ‘gay disease’, which is generally known now to be false.

The government’s lack of interest in the help of the people suffering in the film creates a link to the issue of big companies and their addiction to profit putting money before others.
Evidence of racism towards African Americans in the mixed community is demonstrated when Vivian was outcasted by her family for marrying an African American man, “Her family had nothing to say to her husband and hardly anything to say to her” (112). Lastly, the racial politics of Ernest J. Gaines's book, A Lesson Before Dying are all centered around an overall hatred towards African Americans and anyone related to them. Special cases such as those with mixed race further complicate the politics because they are unaccepted by both races due to their ethnicity and prejudice towards African Americans. To summarize, African Americans are hated by both races while white people remain to have a supremacist view of themselves. Whereas mixed people are outcasted and unaccepted by either race in the
