In the post World War One era where alcohol and flappers are prominent, the story of The Great Gatsby is told in first-person narration by Nick Carraway. The story takes place in the 1920s, in New York City, which is a symbol of wealth, materialism and “meretricious beauty” (Fitzgerald 98). This symbol is what causes New York in the 1920s to be seen as a corrupt time period where Gatsby is corrupt himself. Gatsby is a criminal; he is so focused on the materialistic ideals of the world that he is turned into a criminal, and is essentially one with his corrupt time period. This way he lives, where his life revolves around money and crime, is what causes him to create a dream.
I noticed that Kingsolver use the idea of language to demonstrate the distinct character. For example Rachel consistently misuses of words reveals a lot about her character. In book three looking at the last paragraph of one section where Rachel says, “But I won’t tell her. I prefer to remain anomalous” (270). In this line Rachel probably meant to say, “I prefer to remain anonymous.”
Another character who is victimized by racial discrimination and its consequences is Dolphus Raymond. He is a prosperous white man who lives outside of Macomb with his black paramour and his mixed children. Dolphus fakes being drunk so that the people in Macomb have an excuse for his inappropriate behaviours. He prefers the citizens of Macomb to despise him for a valid excuse rather than to discriminate him based on his personal choices. Racial discrimination negatively effects Dolphus and his children.
The theme that we’ve studied is Conflict. Conflict can be a struggle, whether it is physical or mental. Conflict can be a disagreement between two or more sides. It can be much more complex such as a group against group conflict, for example, “Racism”, or even an Internal Conflict, a conflict within yourself. Conflict is a thing that very much happens in our life.

Pike 1 “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger:” (Proverbs 5:1). Anger is not always the answer to our problems. In the book, The Bronze Bow, the vengeful boy, Daniel Bar Jamin, disregarded this knowledge, and by doing so caused massive harm. Daniel and his demon possessed Sister Leah, lived in a small house with only each other for company. Leah had never proven able to accomplish regular household tasks and feared everything.
The Fosters is about to lesbian couple raising their foster children. I like that this how also show the bad side to foster homes that most people don’t realize that happen. I like that the show’s focus isn’t just on foster care but it points out problems like teen pregnancy, teens figuring out their sexuality, and meeting birth parents/family.
