The outcome moved toward becoming utilitarianism, in which nature is viewed as similarly as a new asset to nourish the industrial machine. The Industrial Revolution bolsters and fortifies the human-centric perspective. Indeed, before The Industrial Revolution, nature was a wellspring of secret that stimulated obscure feelings of trepidation. Be that as it may, after The Industrial Revolution nature wound up noticeably restrained by innovation. In such a circumstance, writers, similar to Lawrence, started to regret the lost quietness of the wide open under the savage hand of industry, and to uncover in their novels the ghastly state of the casualties of the Industrial Machine.
Although critics usually refer the work as a demonstration of dangers inherent in living a life satisfied with shallow stereotypes and misconceptions, the work can be understand in a deeper level with its historical context. As stated by Hwang, “the action of the play takes place in a Paris prison in the present, and, in recall, during the decade 1960-70 in Beijing, and from 1966 to the present in Paris.”(6) In world history, the 1960s was the time where the Second World War (1937-1945) has ended. The Asians were more united after the war, thus nationalism rose among the Asians. They were hoping for democracy of their own homelands. Meanwhile, the western powers were exhausted from war and they retreated from Asia, thus the Asian countries were able to carry out political reforms after escaping from colonization of the West.
It overlaps his life and times with the historical background of the characters in the novel and parallels the author in a world of an entire transformation from the political revolution and the cathedral in a vortex of a sudden innovation from the printing revolution. Victor Hugo reportedly didn’t hide his anger toward the imprudent demolition of the old buildings and the disorderly reconstruction in a destructive manner; accordingly, his analogy in the argument to the relationship between architecture and books through language is absolutely attractive. Through a variety of metaphors somewhat poetic, he says that architecture has engraved the history of mankind within the edifice and has conveyed that edifice to the next generation; then he declares that the role of architecture will be replaced by the publication as a result of the invention of metal type casting. Notwithstanding this long story that is not really related to the main
Manhattan Transfer describes a panoramic view of life in New York City between 1890 and 1925. It contained fragments of popular songs, news headlines, and stream of consciousness monologues from a horde of unrelated characters.

Following the directions of an author he admired, Walt Whitman, Dos Passos who sought to use a “moral microscope” upon humanity.

In my revision of both Allen’s and Lurhmann’s interpretation of the original novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ I will make the connections of both characters and themes and show the effectiveness of the films as representations of Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’. Luhrmann’s ‘Midnight in Paris’ capture of Gil and Inez’s relationship compare greatly to the relationship of both Daisy and Tom but within their relationship there is deeper meaning of what Fitzgerald tried to accomplish. In ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘Midnight in Paris’ it’s all about ‘The Golden Age’ and attempting to live in the past. In the movie Gil said, “That 's what the present is. It’s a little unsatisfying because life is unsatisfying”.
In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was written as a way to rally colonists on the side of the patriots. It listed criticism to inform colonists how the Empire was hurting them, it also played on the emotions of the colonists. During the time, Congress wanted a total break with England, they would no longer be part of the British Empire. The Declaration was also made for the “World”, but for the time the world meant France. The colonies knew they would need France’s help to fight the British, who at the time had the strongest navy in the world.
Satire in the 18th Century The 18th century called for monumental social and economic change. Societal ways were changing and the overall beliefs of Europe was making a huge shift. In Voltaire’s Candide, as well as “A Modest Proposal” by Jonathon Swift, satire is used to critique the ways of society and allude to a better idea in turn. Candide is a philosophical tale testing Alexander Pope’s idea of “Philosophical Optimism.” The term philosophical optimism is the belief that all things are how they should be and this is the best possible way God could have created it. Voltaire’s counterarguments include natural disasters and sin which he expressed multiple times throughout his writing.
The interwar period was the age of the Lost Generation. Exhibiting the decayed and frivolous lifestyle of the upper class, literary works in this period shared a common theme of the corruption of the American Dream. One of the most representative literary works that discusses this theme is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, in which Gatsby’s love with Daisy Fay in his youth promoted him to be a pursuer of the upper-class lifestyle to marry her. Gatsby’s accidental encounter with Daisy in his past frames his character’s development and thus the overall development of the plot. Utilizing symbolism and motif, F. Scott Fitzgerald exhibits the degeneration of Gatsby’s dreams and values to denounce the emptiness of materialism and the death of the American Dream.
Soon after, the French launched a naval expedition to punish the Vietnamese regime. The first attacked in 1858 failed to achieve its objectives.

In this play, Shaw attacks genially the romantic notions of war and love. He has adopted realistic approach in depicting every day activities which were common those days. Here Shaw attacks the social follies of society in order to bring a positive change for which he received criticism. Shaw rejects romanticism in order to embrace realism. Finally, he succeeds in his attempt to exhibit the idea of the realist trumping the
