One of the most well-known works of literature without a doubt is Willa Cather’s “Paul’s Case.” The story is famous because of the richness of writing that Cather employs in making a formidable story one that can help people understand the current times and the world in which we live in especially regarding naturalism and regionalism. This is an interesting story with twists and turns about a young Calvinist man, whom because of circumstances of life felt he does not belong to this life. Paul’s life is filled by people who push him to the limits and make him feel unwanted, among these are; his abusive father, the uncaring teachers and also his classmates that have greatly misunderstood him (Cather and Schlenk 19). It would be justified to say that this is a classic case study on temperaments. There is more to this story than just the interesting story of Paul and the drama that is his life.

“These are the times that try men’s souls” is from Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, a pamphlet that brought a great impact to the people during the American Revolution. And over here in France, the recent times have indeed tried all men’s souls, and it was all started under Maximilien Robespierre. Robespierre could have been taken for any hard-working young man in his earlier days. He devoted his time to his studies and strived to become superior to his peers. Robespierre was a prim and proper man, and not particularly loquacious.

Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most influential figures of the American civil rights movement. Famous for his prowess with words, King was known for writing powerful texts throughout his life. Two of his most famous compositions were his “I Have A Dream” speech and his “Letter From Birmingham Jail”. Although King uses many styles of writing effectively, his writings with pathos are the most prominent. Since “I Have A Dream” uses more pathos than “Letter From Birmingham Jail”, “I Have A Dream” was more effective at inspiring change.

Overall, 1938: Hitler’s Gamble was an informative and enlightening book that handles the escalation of a brutal conflict. The book encourages the reader to wonder, to ask questions. MacDonogh’s work is thought-provoking, fascinating, and terrifying. Still, there are criticisms, including the massive level of detail involved. Giles MacDonogh’s research has led him to become somewhat of an expert on the subject, and he writes as such.
While reading the book “God’s Jury: The Inquisition and the Making of the Modern World”, I found a sense that while the book had very interesting and questioning connections with a variety of passed inquisitions and where or how there are similarities to our modern time. Which is explained greatly by Murphy, functioning as a guide to the readers, offering a tour of the Inquisition’s nearly 700-year-old. I also found that Murphy did a great job in defining and explaining in detail the various gruesome instruments and acts of torture through history and showing similarities and same techniques used today. My the one problem I had was I found it an overall amusing to read, but personally until the first 3-4 chapters the book is quite difficult to digest and connect with, but as the inquisitions began to be more modern era I could relate and see the points and connections that were being made. I found that Murphy’s focus was to demonstrate how the mind-set and some machinery of the Inquisitions are unpreventable products of the modern world that later surfaced in Stalin’s Russia,
