The only problem is the year is 1815 and slavery is in full affect. Dana was in a time where patrollers would, as Dana would experience it, “slap me stunningly with one hand” (41) for no reason at all. Butler is using Dana as a fictional first-person point of view character in the early 1800’s. Butler writes her story like this to fit a historical slave narrative genre which she can eventually use to solidify her point of praising social advancements. Charles J. Heglar, an associative professor at Xavier University, categorizes the typical elements of a slave narrative to follow footsteps of one of the most iconic slave narratives, Fredrick Douglass’ narrative.
The quote shows more about the people of Maycomb rather than about Scout. Scout was afraid of Boo Radley and that he would come seeking revenge. Even though Boo is a nice man, she only knows the stories from those around her. Boo Radley was a mystery to the people of Maycomb and was feeling more prejudice than he should
On the heroin-riddled streets of Harlem, the narrator of “Sonny’s Blues” has given up hope for his brother, because he believes that the rampant drug community has consumed him. As their distant relationship drifts closer, the narrator begins to see through Sonny’s eyes, but fails to see the benefit in Sonny seemingly throwing himself into the fire by becoming a musician. It is only during Sonny’s struggle that his need for this artistic expression becomes apparent. While staying with Isabel’s family, the frantic reverberations screamed a message to all that could hear, “As I sensed... Sonny was at that piano playing for his life”(1946).
When night falls, and the visitors leave the spider monkey exhibit and then eventually the zoo, the speaker is the only one left, back where he started at the bench. The speaker then starts to compare what the monkey did by reaching at his bottom, to what would happen if a human did it. He goes on to talk about how wrong it is. The speaker wants everyone to know this but he can’t say it so he says, “... and we will say these words as we stand; no; think them.” Rice uses diction fantastically here.
A recurring theme both poems is the fact that the birds in the cage (a juxtaposition of African-Americans at the time) often witness how the free birds enjoy their freedom and live life heedlessly having no idea how the caged bird feels and this causes much distress to caged birds. The author of “Sympathy”, Paul Laurence Dunbar states in his poem “When the sun is bright on the upland slope, when the wind stirs through the streaming grass, when the first bird sings and the first bud duds” Similarly Maya Angelou includes this quote in her poem “Caged Bird”, “The free birds leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream to the currents end and dips his wings in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky” In both poems the two poets explicate how the birds have the ability to glimpse outside of their cages and see the other birds. They witness the free bird experiencing this pulchritudinous, almost angelic places compared to the melancholy and the deplorable conditions that the caged bird enjoys. These circumstances are a metaphor for the lives that African-Americans faced and how caucasian people during the epoch of Jim
I think these will do me a great favor to my graduation thesis, though I have not finished the whole picture yet. First one is something about the social background. As an historical novel, telling about the story of the pre-Russian invasion and pre-Taliban rule of Afghanistan, The Kite Runner paints a realistic portrait of a country about which most readers probably know very little and think of it as a country that is full of terrorist, weapons and attack. Although it is a fictive story, the representation of the political, social, and cultural systems of this Middle Eastern country provides a different picture to the contemporary stereotype about Afghanistan, which is primarily regarded as the home to terrorists. There is no doubt that the function is profound.
Everyone around the world has different beliefs, behaviors, objects and religion that are common for a particular society or a group of people who enjoys shared values and thus gives positive contributions to the society. This is called Culture. These are carried on by the people from generation by generation. It is the particular view point, customs and beliefs that discern one culture from another. It is transferred from one generation to another through language, material objects, and daily rituals.

The opposing team tried to hurt him by spiking him, aiming the ball at his head, called him unpleasant names, and his own teammates avoided him. The racial discrimination was not just on the baseball field; he encountered a lot of trouble when they were on the road. Many cities did not allow Robinson to stay at the same hotel as the team and restaurants would not serve him. Therefore he was forced to eat his meals and sleep on the bus. The only positive applauses and cheers came from the colored section at the games, some Brooklyn Dodger fans, and Branch Rickey that also backed him up.
when Fidel Castro came to power in 1959, the relationship between the U.S and Cuba quickly advanced to bitter arguments, political grandstanding’s and the seldom international crises. The bang of Cuba’s sugar industry in the 19th century made it crucial for Cuba to advance its transportation infrastructure. Farmers
Hurston’s Curveball Some writers are almost as curious as the crew of the Mystery Machine, constantly looking for a way to wow readers. Zora Neale Hurston was no different, and a prime example. In her book, Their Eyes Were Watching God Janie Crawford, Nannie, Tea Cake, Joe Starks, and Logan Killicks made this book something special. The story that rotates around the deep south while making fun of its racial ideas was a stand out of its time. Zora Neale Hurston’s writing is both a reflection of and a departure from the ideas of the Harlem Renaissance.
The three main influences that are affecting “America’s English” language would be Technology, Cultural diversity, and slang. Technology is very influential in “America’s English” because it is both used frequently and used globally. Majority Americans have some sort of connection with technological devices; whether its using a computer, having a smartphone or even watching television shows.

Technology is believed to be both a necessity and a means that will help by applying knowledge to applied purposes.
