Holden complains that "I was surrounded by phonies" (13) in the novel. Besides it, he often uses the word “depress” to describe somebody around him or what he experiences. In other words, he always looks down on other people, and because of this, most of the time he is isolated from people around him. Additionally, he does not have any real personal connection with others except his sister, Phoebe, and brother, D.B. In the story, Holden tries to be different from others because it is the way to express identity for him.
Although Nathaniel Hawthorne didn’t seem to go through as much as Edgar Allan Poe in his life, having to only really worry about financial issues and his father passing away during his childhood, he still seemed to ponder on the darkness within humans. However, while Poe based his stories on certain elements of his life, Hawthorne seems to write about human nature simply because writers in those days got famous by being transcendentalists. In fact Hawthorne, wasn’t even interested in Romanticism, if not for his wife-to-be at the time. According to Biography.com, “Nathaniel Hawthorne ended his self-imposed seclusion at home about the same time he met Sophia Peabody, a painter, illustrator, and transcendentalist. During their courtship, Hawthorne spent some time at the Brook Farm community where he got to know Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.

The Supreme Court made this decision because they said you can 't just refuse to give someone a job because they did not ask for accommodations because you think they are a certain religion. The Dissenting Reasoning they gave was that since Abercrombie had a certain policy on looks it was not such a intentional discrimination. Justice Clarence says that since they have a certain policy towards everyone then this isn 't really discriminating her or her religion so it does not fall into the VII Title of the Civil Right Act of 1964.What makes this court so important is that they are making judgements because of somebody 's religion. This is important since America is based of different cultures and religions so this should not even be thing. It is also important since it is an article, which should be respected and followed by
The hero 's journey is everywhere, in the books you read to in your own life. In every book it’s a little different due to the author 's style. This can be seen between the two books The Hobbit and A Dog’s life. The Hobbit is about a Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins who goes on a quest to get treasure back from a dragon.
In The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger portrays a fascinating juvenile misfit character extensively named Holden Caulfield.

On page 39 George says ”He’s dumb as hell, but he ain’t crazy”. This is a small part that shows that Lennie has a mental disability. He isn’t very smart and he can’t talk by himself. He has George always telling him what to do. George also protects him from the people that would make a big deal out of finding out what really is wrong with Lennie.
In addition, he is not capable of committing murder, but his wife is the one who encourages him to do it, saying that “he needs to be a man”. Lady Macbeth is the whisper that convinces Macbeth when he is not sure of it. That is why her wife is seen to a large extent as evil during the
In the the poem “anyone lived in a pretty how town” by E.E. Cummings and in the novel The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald, both showed many signs of the people being careless, and all though there was death nobody really seemed to care. For one quote in the poem in line 25 it says “One day anyone died I guess” that shows that death is not a big factor and it seemed as they are very careless of it when it happens. It also shows that they are not important to other. They just bury you and keep it moving. Another quote from out of the poem was line 34 and it says “Summer autumn winter spring” that quote is saying that people change like the season.
Moreover, no religion should allow a person being used or traded like property, and instead they should talk about the values of life. The first part of the quote states that no one amongst the two families is a coward. Well, then if someone is not a coward then that must mean they can stand up to and against anything and everything. Then if this is true, then why do the families own slaves if they claim they aren’t cowards. If they aren’t cowards, they should be able to do things by themselves without having someone else do it for them.
Nonetheless, a few of the lessons included in The Great Gatsby are not considered politically correct by any standard. The narrator, Nick Carraway, tends to surround himself with folk he isn’t particularly fond of, including Jay Gatsby. At one point in the novel, he thinks, “It was the only compliment i ever gave him, because I disapproved of him from beginning to end” (pg 162). Nick obviously never liked Gatsby, which doesn’t add up because throughout the novel, Gatsby appeared to be Nick’s best friend; he did favors for him, hung out a majority of the book, kept secrets for him, and yet Nick must have been faking it. If Nick didn’t like Gatsby, why did he put up with him all the time?
He knows the rest of the town will disapprove, but he believes in the innocence of this man and does not care of his complexion. In this moment, Scout and Jem only see how everyone will downgrade them and see them differently. Atticus shows, it does not matter what others think, all that matters is that you support what you believe in. This shows how Atticus is a strong character who contributes a lot to the overall lesson
There is a lot of coarse language in the book which has been a reason why some people want the book banned. Harper Lee’s treatment of these subjects (themes and language) for the most part was both realistic and respectful. The themes that are in To Kill a
