By using ambiguous language, Herman Melville’s Billy Budd, Sailor explains homosexuality and the issues the group had in society. It can be assumed that at least three of the Bellipotent’s crew were homosexual and other members of the crew knew this as well. Through the time period there was constant fear and persecution of homosexuals which led to the crewmen being silent in their justice just as homosexuals were silenced in their prosecutions by others.

He was generally kind and was liked by other sailors. Even when Captain Vere made him be hang, he accepted the situation, and sacrifice himself for other problems that could happen if he was not punished. While in the other hand.

Similarities between Dick Gregory Malcom X, and Frederick Douglass Malcom X, Dick Gregory, and Fredrick Douglass all have something in common.

Authors often write books in an attempt to express their own feelings in the text, which will often become displayed as biased. The readers have an unbiased viewpoint towards the actions in the book and can easily persuade the reader to question morals and actions of the characters. In “Ethan Frome”, “Of Mice and Men”, and In Cold Blood, the authors set up the books to persuade the readers feelings towards the characters and question the morality of the situations. Information in “Ethan Frome” comes directly from one main source, Ethan, which causes mostly all of the story to sound biased. Zeena’s character in the story seems as if she has no value in Ethan’s life and continuously described by Ethan as a very negative person.
