Even though some people did not understand Wilde’s purpose, others easily captured the message. Therefore, although Oscar Wilde’s main priority was to mock the views of the upper class, not everyone received his message of criticism clearly, but they did enjoy the ridiculousness of the play. By using lampooning in his work, Wilde could use his heavy criticism to improve the day of the lower class by mocking the upper class’ personalities and
4.03 Developing Theme Thesis Statement F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and The Jelly Bean both use Irony, Foreshadowing, and symbolism to describe how many people’s endeavor to achieve great wealth and class drove people’s decisions in the 1920s.

He used sarcasm to perfect his work of satire. He quotes, “I loved this work. I would be hard-pressed to recount any event from my personal or professional life that more accurately typified the phrase crazy fun.” (Alford, 999).

Jane will be the one in charge to unmask him to the audience: “I saw he was going to marry her [Blanche Ingram] for family, perhaps political reasons, because her rank and connections suited him” (Brontë 205) This manner of conduct converts Mr. Rochester from a hero into a villain, a perpetrator and “his project of
The image of the Jester in the reinterpretation represents both Feste and the house of merriment. His constant mocking of his "betters" further reinforces the idea of upsetting social order.

Masked by his humour Feste often offers others good advice.
The Miller’s Tale however is more unacceptable because it includes adultery. His tale is of a love triangle but in his story, the woman in married to one man, meeting with another man, and being adored by yet another man. Despite the Miller’s great describing of his tale, I have proclaimed that the Knight’s Tale wins this battle based on each tellers’ social status, the basis of each story and it’s entirety, and the lesson taught in each story. The
“You have invented a very useful younger brother called Ernest, in order that you may be able to come up to town as often as you like.” (Wilde Page10). Nearly all the characters in the story speak in a sophisticated way with some extent of deception or duplicity in them, which are frequently shown in the passages of the stories and create a sense of funny absurd in the dialogue. At the same time, the rationale of being superficial and deceptive are worth considering. Superficialness and duplicity are practiced by characters in The Importance of Being Earnest under the circumstances of the Victorian-style social obligation of being dignified, the arrogance of the middle class, and especially for Jack and Algernon, the pursuit of more interesting
Satire is a writing technique that authors use to make fun of human flaws using humor to help improve humanity. Mark Twain uses Satire in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in hopes to correct human flaws. Some human flaws that Twain recognizes and comments on throughout the story are cowardliness, greed, and gullibility. When Twain wrote his satirical comments on cowardliness he is pointing out that humans only have courage when they are in a group; when other people are backing them up.
You could see it when she got sarcastic and impatient with me because I couldn't explain myself or I did things wrong. Stop thinking about class, she'd say. Like a rich man telling a poor man to stop thinking about money.” In conclusion, the theme is the most realist element in the novel The Collector, along with the unity of the story, the detailed depiction of the two main characters, and the use of language.

“Why, Charles Stone, you’re starting to sound awfully similar to dissenters,” I said back with my mischievous grin. “Maybe even like Detonate, himself.” “No. Detonate is just some loser high on the attention, I suspect. I’ve never meet him, myself.”
This article explains both large and small details in The Great Gatsby, and also gives input on what some notions mean. Hays does a wonderful job of giving readers an insightful look into Gatsby as a character. First, he intrigues interest by questioning Gatsby and why he is so intimidated by Daisy, even though he had seduced her in the past. He further explains oxymorons throughout the book such as Fitzgerald calling Gatsby ‘an elegant...roughneck,’ which he does to insinuate the idea that Gatsby contains an odd persona. In addition, Hays describes Daisy’s character and how she represents the American Dream, a belief that if one can work hard enough, through hard work, can achieve anything.
Finally, the personal take of Nabokov on the subject of tyranny has allowed him to produce a masterpiece such as Lolita in which the protagonist is a deranged man manipulating his audience into thinking that being a despot is not something to be ashamed of, but rather to embrace while it lasts. The novelist uses Humbert to demonstrate how powerfully persuasive tyrants can be while subtly leading his readership into not being seduced by the man (Schiller). Controversy was nonetheless bound to happen, but despite its repercussions, the gains are many as they allowed for an audience that is socially aware and critical of its interpretation of readings. All in all, Azar Nafisi was not wrong when he said that “the biggest crime in Nabokov 's 'Lolita
