However, 8.5 would actually be beneficial to the audience’s understanding of the theme of how one’s greed can lead to their downfall due to the repetition of the theme portrayed in Malcolm’s downfall. Having two examples of the theme establishes the idea of how disastrous greed can be. The revelation of Lady Macbeth’s infidelity (126.96.36.199-30) furthered this idea as it indicated how Macbeth had lost his status and loyalty due to his savage lust for power. By incorporating Act 5 Scene 8.5 into Macbeth, significant details contributing to character development and the plot would be included, strengthening the play’s overall theme. Macbeth’s storyline would be furthered through the fulfillment of Banquo's prophecy, and the addition of this act continues seamlessly as it remains consistent with the original theme.
The incident had caused an uproar because the cargo and falsified evidence were justification to send the incident to court, but it’s captured by slavers endangered the lives of freemen. From the outside perspective of those who were not on the ship, but the officials in control varied their opinion.

Mark Twain expressed through his characters how slaves were thought of as property and not human beings. This is evident at the slave auction and throughout the story as Jim fights to buy his family's freedom. Aunt Sally also drives home the message that blacks are not men when after the steamboat explosion she is told a "nigger" was killed and she replies, "Well, it's lucky; because sometimes people do get hurt!" (Twain 228). Earlier, Twain shows just how racist people are when Pap Finn actually gives up his right to vote because a black man has the right to vote.
However, greater criticism today has arisen from its didactic nature, because of the means through which Stowe wrote on the atrocity of slavery. The greatest criticism has arisen today due to the uncharacteristically pious personality of Tom and Eva St. Clare, as well as the racial stereotypes Stowe uses get her point across. As critic Veronica Margrave states about the overzealous tendencies of Eva and Tom in her passage, Rethinking Contemporary Criticism of Uncle Tom’s Cabin; "one sees clearly that both are meant to be allegorical characters, and Stowe has cleverly crafted them as such" (1). Meanwhile, some historians and readers disdain the novel for its racial stereotypes and patronizing attitude towards blacks, such as Tom 's subservient nature, especially when he promises to remain with St. Clare even if freed. However, again Margrave objects that Tom was "a Christian man who saw another in need, and chose to be a situational martyr, choosing another over himself.
The same can be said about Gatsby, who took part in shady business dealings to become rich and worthy of Daisy’s love, however, in the end his immorality and recklessness cost him his life. Following this pattern, it is easy to see how the contrasting morals of Fitzgerald’s characters are the effect of time spent in their respective social
Also, their witty comments to each other make for highly entertaining moments. Claudio allows other people to fool him into believing untrue things, which leads to dramatic altercations with numerous characters. Dogberry’s unwittiness leads to a coincidence that saves the whole play and creates an ironic feeling that the least intelligent character discovered the evil plot. “The wit of Shakespeare’s play informs the words spoken by the characters, places the characters themselves as truly witty and intelligent, inappropriately facetious, or ingeniously witless, suggests the lines of action these characters will

During the Gilded Age, many fortunes were made by the railroad system. The increased construction of railroads provided the transportation of people, supplies, and trading goods. The movement of people from the east to the west allowed for increased populations and the spread of their culture.

Advice To Youth was a speech given by Mark Twain in 1882. In Mark Twain's speech, he gives advice, but not in the traditional way which the older audience expects. Although the title is Advice to Youth, the speech seems more targeted towards adults and authorities; although it does still give the youth advice. Twain does this in a manner in which he shows that many adults give advice that they do not even follow. Mark Twain uses juvenal satire, exaggeration, and symbolism to effectively get his message across and strengthen his argument.
