In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Nelle Harper Lee, the citizens of Maycomb give and receive respect from the amount of conformity that is shown. At the beginning of the book, Jem is given little respect, Atticus is given a lot of respect, and the Radleys are given almost no respect. As the novel progresses, Jem matures and learns responsibility as a young adult. Atticus loses a bit of respect because of his defense of a black person. Meanwhile, the Radleys never conformed much and so never gained much respect.

The second reading of madness is one more commonly explored in literature as a theme to emphasize the devastating effects of losing one’s identity or past. In Colonialism and Cultural Identity, Hogan writes about how identity is separated into two parts according to Lacan theory: practical identity and reflective identity. Practical identity, Hogan writes, is ordinary, habitual, or confident individual action, but individual action interwoven with other individual actions, including those of others (83). In conjunction with practical identity is reflective identity. Reflective identity is one’s self-image, what one thinks of oneself conceptually and perceptually.
I argue, that Dickens criticizes the welfare system and the conditions of the workhouses while also blaming it for the shaming of the paupers and thereby promoting the forming of criminal societies to avoid availing oneself of welfare. Therefore, I am going to first show Dickens’ own impression of the workhouse and his experience with the welfare system, which influenced his descriptions in Oliver Twist. This novel was partly published in protest of the passage of the Poor Law Amendment Act, an act to reduce the cost of the poverty relief system in England and Wales. Next, I would like to focus on Dickens’
Simply because Charlie was the “wallflower”. He was quiet, didn't dance at parties, and wasn't in the 'in crowd.' He seemed to prefer to sit o the sidelines in life. People like that are usually labeled as sad, losers and are said to not be living life to the fullest, the book showed that wallflowers can have the most amazing lives and be truly happy while still holding their wallflower status. Thus the book being labeled: “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”.
The play a dolls house has been written by Henrik Ibsen in the 19th century when women were seen as weak and meagre in comparison to men; women during this time period women had nearly no real influence at all and because of this Henrik Ibsen was criticised a lot for making the protagonist of his play a woman. Henrik Ibsen was a feminist and was against the very thought that domestic work was meant entirely for a woman and that money matters was the man’s domain. Daily life in the Victorian era was very moralistic and was inspired by proper decorum and even the thought of opposing its norms was considered as transgression. Most marriages were ruled by social reputation, respectability and economic manners and marriage and bestowing a child upon their husband was the highest honour a woman could receive and because of all this and due to the very fact that this play has been written in the Victorian era Henrik Ibsen has fostered the main theme of the play to be money and its significant control over a woman’s fate in the play “A Doll’s House”.
The Visit, written by Friedrich Durrenmatt is set in a notorious town called Guellen. In the play, The Visit, Friedrich Durrenmatt raises the question of the corruptibility of justice by asking whether it can be bought in return for material wealth.

Even though he is a sinner, Carton is not a malevolent person. He refuses to pursue his dream of a better life because he knows that it would bring nothing but disgrace upon Lucy, the woman whom he loves. He often visits the Manette household, always “moody and morose” while he is there (Dickens 148). He can a pleasant person when he wishes to be, but the cloud of caring for nothing, which overshadowed him with a fatal darkness, was very rarely pierced by the light within him” (Dickens 148). This quote makes it clear to the reader that Sydney does have some light inside of him, but it is hidden beneath a facade of carelessness.
Why does a street sweeper dare come into here?” (Rand 62) As Equality walked in there he felt very looked down on, and they saw him as nothing important. The council thought they were more important than him. Collectivism was showing in this part by the council thinking they were higher than Equality when he walked into there home.
The retribution part is to punish the person for the crime that they permitted against society, and the incapacitation part is to remove that person out of society so they do no further harm. Deterrence means the prevention of future crime, and the rehabilitation teaches life skills and in the betterment. However, author Sandiford says that instead of solving crime, mass incarceration has infected our communities and striking them with devastating symptoms, and prison costs have skyrocketed, inmates ' families have been torn apart, and the system is overwhelmingly stratified by race and class (Sandiford,
