(A Tale of Two Cities, p337-Collins classics) Hunger, anger, rage, revenge, extermination and justice! That was the reality of 1775 in France. The peasants became beggars and were more than sick and tired of the situation they were facing at that time. They were dictated by the Monarchy, the Nobles and the Catholic Church who indulged them with heavy taxes; no proper land to grow crops; no freedom of actions nor words, basically nothing. Left in agony they got nothing except a heart filled with remorse and vengeance to keep them warm during cold nights.
Hadlee Creech Mrs. Lutrell 30 January, 2018 In John SteinBeck 's classic novela “Of Mice and Men” he bestows upon an elderly man a loss of hope for life. The elderly and the handicap are seen useless to themselves and to society; SteinBeck crafted Candy’s character to demonstrate how corrupt society dehumanizes all hope of the elderly and the handicap living the American Dream. Our society shows senior citizens, especially useless senior citizens, are expendable; Society only wants you when you’re young. It doesn’t matter if you contributed a lot when you were young because once you get old, you’re useless. SteinBeck introduces two characters, one character named candy with his dog and the other character named Carlson who brings up the

To begin with, Mrs Dubose addresses to Scout and her family about how Atticus is disgracing his race and his color by defending Tom Robinson on the alleged rape case. Mrs Dubose says, “Your father’s no better than the ni**ers and trash he works for” (135). Atticus views Maycomb as an injustice town because during this time period black people were seen as a lower class. Atticus is mark as an overall victim because in the trial the county is shocked that Atticus is
Jesus’ parable of the Wicked Tenants is the most significant, discussed, complicated, and debated parable in the Bible. For several people, the parable makes them uncomfortable because it reveals too much about the view of Jesus. This parable is about a landowner who leases his vineyard to tenants, but when he sends servants and finally his own beloved son to get the fruit from his vineyard, the tenants beat and kill them. Jesus ends the parable with talking about the rejected cornerstone and how the kingdom of God will be taken away and given to others. It seems simple and straightforward.
Blake objected to that growing power through taxation, that merchants, financiers and aristocrats were enjoying and to the financial inequality that resulted due to this system. As the speaker wanders, he notes “marks of weakness, marks of woe” among the citizens.

. why are you so absent?” (1170). He is consistently targeted for his irregular attendance; he is even shamed when he confesses his dislike towards the current reverend. His society discriminates against him for having his own moral code; it forces him to
Crooks is excluded and abused, because he is African American. Candy is continuously rejected, and made to feel helpless and unworthy, because he is old and only has one hand. These traits have singled out Crook and Candy, and left them in a state of hopelessness and misery. The awful way that these characters are treated on the ranch embody how those who are different are treated in a uniformitarian society. Steinbeck exposes the horror of a exclusive society through the heartbreak that his characters go through.
Citizens who married for love, and came from poverty were mostly those who suffered. They had filthy clothes, dirty faces and so called “lower class” accents. The industrial revolution caused, as mentioned earlier, great changes between the classes there were and made extreme differences between people`s behaviour, clothing and jobs just to mention a few. The scene in the film where David will be abandoned from his stepfather after his mum and baby brother died and being sent to work in a factory, shows the best example of how the industrial revolution influenced people`s behaviour. The way the leader in the factory talks to David shows the lack of trust and belief in poor people which developed during the industrialization.
The Lieutenant is an angry character in which anger is presented. The lieutenant is completely angry from the church and priests and Greene is expresses his anger through criticizing the church. Girard says "Numerous voices in the novel castigate the church… The lieutenant, for instance, deplores the shallowness of the priest's faith, the weakness of their flesh, their deception of population, the ignorance of the people are kept in, and the way the church adds the misery of peasants" and that is clear through the lieutenant who thinks that priests lives in wealth and have a comfort life and lift people live in poverty and misery. They were collecting their money from the poor workers and labors of the plantation not for the church, but
Whole families were often crowded in single rooms, where lack of hygiene occasionally led to cholera. Debtors were punished with jail, and life in prison was horrific. Education too had its problems. Teachers were unskilled and corporal punishment was still applied to maintain the discipline. THE VICTORIAN COMPROMISE The particular situation, which saw prosperity and progress on the one hand showed poverty, ugliness and injustice on the other hand, which opposed ethical conventionalist to corruption, moralism and liberality to money and capitalistic greediness which separated private life from public behaviour which is
