Similar to Hans in The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak, he too helped harbor a Jewish man named Max in their basement. Mark Zusak, in The Book Thief, uses similes, situational irony, and symbolism to demonstrate the human trait of standing up for what they believe in. Through his similes, Zusak exemplifies the tendency of humans to stand up for what they believe in. Amazing and thrilling describes the exact opposite of life in Munich, Germany. The streets consisted of slumped over people trying to get past the struggles of war, and hundreds of Jewish people making their way to the atrocious concentration camp, Dachau.

This capitalistic materialism has blurred his morality and caused him to raise his children with the wrong frame of my mind and thus set them up for failure. As a middle class man with a sales job that he is not particularly amazing at, he was able to raise enough money to pay off a house and other necessities for his family. However, he did not see this as success because they didn’t have a financial surplus. His family and owning a small house was never his dream. He thought the American dream was getting rich, so because he wasn’t able to do this in a lifetime he descended into
Gatsby’s undying efforts to gain Daisy’s attention by throwing grand parties, advertising his wealth, and paying her visits never go unnoticed. The true characteristics of each class are displayed throughout the way they each respond to certain situations and the choices they choose to make. The characters lie, cheat, break laws, and murder. The Great Gatsby ends in a tragedy which F. Scott Fitzgerald foresees society is ultimately leading towards. The great Gatsby explores themes of social classes and the corruption of the American dream through the failure of poetic justice.
Though some critics speak in favor of the popular account of the cause of his death being his excessive obsession with so called the American dream and the 'capitalist oppression ' ; however, many still refuse to ascribe the cause of his death to capitalist oppression, which I will use synonymously with American dream here.

communism close to his American readership. Aside from his communist wish of an equal world in which every nation and every ethnicity lives together in harmony, Hughes also thematised the exploitation of the black working class as a consequence of capitalism. In "Black Workers"(Rampersand and Roessel 172) he portrays this situation. The poem is about sedulous bees, producing honey, which is taken away again when the day 's work is done. He compares the Afro-Americans to those bees, who are deprived and meagrely paid by their white bosses.
Just as Nazi Germany blamed the Jews, handicapped, gays, and other minorities for the tragedies that the country were trying so desperately to overcome; the Oceania government used whichever society, Eastasia or Eurasia, they felt like. Constantly switching between the two and feeding Oceanias inhabitants lies about the others. Once this “groupthink” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) is widely tolerated something “can go from being wrong or weird to acceptable and normal very quickly” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) . There is a domino effect and people begin to fall in line so to speak. It is easier to agree with what seems to be the majority than it is to disagree.
Description refers to a literary point of view of the attitude of the narrator of the narrative of events or opinions. Authors can be the first person 'I ' narrative point of view, but also a character from a novel point of view to start, or to describe the identity of a third party.

Knowing that his influence took three different forms, our analysis will be divided into three parts. First, we will compare Anderson and Hemingway’s writing style. Then, we will analyze the importance of the thematic of some of their works. Finally, the tense friendship between the two writers will be looked at throughout “Papa” Hemingway’s lifestyle. As the “literary father” of Hemingway, Anderson introduced this young American writer to Gertrude Stein, who later became his “literary mother”.

Thanks to no government interventions businesses were able to help improve the economy by playing by no rules and doing what they see fit. While businesses grew, the working class struggled to survive. Farmers who were once living comfortably soon faced a wall as they struggled to sell things in the market. More Americans got involved in politics during this age but the government was so corrupted that their votes didn’t matter. Positions in the government would be sold and votes would be bought.
(Genesis 1:31) The author of our text believes the only solution to long-term poverty is business. (Grudem, W., p.80) I agree, but we still have people who operate unethical, and even though they may provide jobs to people, they lack in pay and benefits with a lot of employees.
