Thus, his writing of children 's books usually met with critical responses also and according to West (1988) and Szuber (1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, although being much loved by the children, came under attack for being racist through the characters of the Oompa Loompas (West, 1988). Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had depicted one of their characters with the different skin tone that have a correlation with the specific racial, Oompa-Loompas are portrayed by Roald Dahl in 1964 as black pygmy people from Africa. Political activism at that time was really strict and also to avoid the criticism of Dahl 's book, the Mel Stuarts 's movie Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (1971) redesigns the Oompa-Loompas with orange skin and green hair. In 1973, Oompa-Loompas are white and in the recent movie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) by Tim Burton, Oompa-Loompas are Brown Indian-American. This research will analyze the Oompa-Loompas and their changing depictions through the novel and movie from 1964-2005 to explore racial discrimination issue subjected to Roald Dahl as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory author.

Mrs. Breedlove finds a reflection of her own in Pecola which is “ugly” not only for others but for her also.

To begin, some diction used throughout A Tale of Two Cities can be portrayed as satire as an attempt by Dickens to make fun of the corrupt nature of the aristocrats to further prove how corruption can cause a revolution. Dickens utilizes satirical diction and descriptions to showcase the useless hierarchy of France and it is evident that Dickens feels strong hatred towards the aristocracy by describing them in sardonic ways. An example of the ironic uselessness of the hierarchy is shown in the description of the Monseigneur: “Yes it (the consumption of his chocolate) took four men, all four a-blaze with gorgeous decoration, and the Chief of them unable to exist with fewer than two gold watches in his pocket.” (Dickens, 107) This description
"In Secret" finds hit and miss approach around this by enjoying up the cluelessness of Madame's domino buddies. They misread everything by filtering the plain through a prism of social favouritism and individual backwardness. This includes a major payoff later.
