I got up at half-past four in the morning, and sit up till twelve at night, to hate ‘em” (334). Although his opinion does not represent how all southerners felt it did represent a majority of them during that time of reconstruction.
In Dr. Seuss’s poem “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”, the author focuses on Marxism and the effects it has on society. Marxism or Marxist criticism analysis literature in an economical view point and considers the main issues to be economical privilege or lack thereof. In the poem, it starts off stating that the Grinch did not like Christmas because “his head wasn't screwed on just right. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight” this seems to imply that the Grinch didn’t have proper education due to financial issues and as a result, he couldn’t think properly.

Several instances show in the novel that characters say something and their actions don’t match their word. For instance, when the Widow Douglas told Huck that he could not smoke because smoking was “a mean practice and wasn't clean” (2). Miss Watson herself, however, chewed tobacco. Other characters in the novel also serve as the form of satire to hypocrites. The duke, right away says that “ - all black men are thieves - ” (--).
Poems are not always cheery rhymes, written by carefree poets. Some poets, such as Ambrose Bierce, live a life of misfortune. Growing up with 8 siblings, Bierce hated his family.

By the end of the story, she began to resent sacrificing major opportunities in life when she was younger. Chopin’s “Desiree’s Baby”, explored the effects of racial profiling. Throughout the story, a man decides to make his wife leave because he believed she was black, due to the color of their baby.

After going through hell trying to write the book, and its rocky release and low sales showed how controversial the book was even in his time.

Para 1 A High school in Philadelphia banned the book Huckleberry Finn from its curriculum due to its use of the N-word making students uncomfortable, and “the community costs of reading this book in 11th grade outweigh the literary benefits”. The N- word is used over 200 times in the book by the author Mark Twain;

George Packer takes a negative, if at times somewhat piteous, view of newt Gingrich in his portrait of him. Gingrich is initially characterized rather positively; he comes from a broken family, has negative relationships with his parents and step-parent, but continues onwards despite life’s hardships for the future finds solace in reading.

During Gingrich’s later years he is illustrated as spiteful and angry, more focused on tearing down what he disagrees with rather than creating something better.
