England never had proper control over its colonies. Many immigrants left England knowing that the nation 's power within the colonies was virtually nonexistent. It could be argued that England appointed governors and passed laws before 1763 in an attempt to control its colonies, but it is known that colonists largely undermined these efforts and found ways to circumvent the generally unenforced legislation. The colonies had been deciding their own laws and faith since they had arrived on the foreign continent, because of how accustomed the Americans became to home rule, they would not let England take their right from them.

Marco, the main character, wants to travel to the U.S. with his father to help him earn funds to support their family. Marco as a character gives the reader someone specific to focus on in the story to see what each different trial is like and the doubt of being able to make it across that follows each failure. For example, after they get caught a few times, it seems like they will never make it to the other side. These struggles are shown in the story when it says, “but after five attempts, they were no farther into the United States than they’d been the first night” (Ryan 91).

There is such a mystery that surrounds the migration of the Loomis Family. The journey from their familiar life in England to an uncertain future in New England was not easy. However, it all started in 1585 when Robert White married Bridget Allgar and had a daughter named Mary White.

Then several years later in 1614, three years before her father’s death, Mary White married Joseph Loomis a successful cloth merchant in Braintree, England.
Imperialism is a policy of extending the rule or authority of an empire or nation over foreign countries. It originated in the 1800’s but flourished in Europe during the 1900’s due to the British expansion towards foreign lands. The factors in fueling the 19th-century imperialism consisted of racism, economics, religion, and politics: Racism, in my opinion, is the most important in fueling the 19th-century imperialism because the motives for expansion expressed prejudice. Racism means the prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior. Most events during the era of imperialism illustrated a trait of racism, which fueled imperialism throughout Europe.

The Island archetype throughout literature I was listening to my friend talking about a TV show called Prison Break. I listened to her unenthusiastic voice talk about how sour frowns cover men’s faces as if they were waiting for death. I’ve never been to a jail before, so I was amazed by how lonely a person can feel when they are being separated from the rest of society. A person becomes so quiet and secretive that they begin to look like a little kid hiding from their mom because they did something bad. I started to realize that being isolated from the rest of the world can change your personality.
