The costume of each character is shown very obviously in the scene when Dorothy met them. For Glinda Witch of the North, her costume looks white pretty brighten and she looks like an angel. For Wicked Witch of the West, her costume is green-representing bad thing- ugly and a look of a bad guy. In Oz Dorothy meet some fantasy characters: Scarecrow, Tinman, Lion and finally the Wizard of Oz. Each character present the inner of mankind.
book is about the struggles of a town in southern Texas as they go through the boom and bust cycle of oil prices. Their town is struggling with segregation and racial issues which shaped a lot of the events of the books. A central idea of “Mojo Magic” exists in the book as a kind of exaggeration of football which brings the town together. There is no magic, for it is just the effects it has on the town and its people. Bissinger is the author, and the examples will encompass many characters he writes about.
Napoleon in the novel is not a wise character. However, he occupies the leader’s position since he is intimidating and authoritative. In contrast, Snowball who is portrayed as the intelligent character, somehow gets expelled from the farm, because he was not as manipulative as Napoleon. To begin with, Orwell uses propaganda as one way of illustrating the theme of power. Napoleon and Squealer both utilize propaganda to brainwash and motivate the animals into following their orders, such as when Snowball teaches the sheep into chanting the slogan, “Four legs good, two legs bad!”(Orwell, page 34).
Leaders has the sense of leadership. They are the one who motivates their subordinates, has an ability to make tough decisions and a good facilitator to his constituents. However, there a still a few horrible leaders that instead of empowering others, they are using their power for their own good. In the two great books, Billy Budd and Animal Farm show the violence under the tyranny of a leader and reflects greatly in every character of the said books. In Animal Farm, the dilemma started when Old major dies and all of the animals in the Manor farm inspired by Old Major’s philosophy of Animalism.
After reading the Wizard of Oz, I have found quite a lot of themes from the book. Here are the themes I am going to be mainly focusing on: 1) There is no place like home During a tornado in Kansas, Dorothy (the main character) gets transported into a completely different world from Kansas. The minute she arrives to the Land of the Munchkins, she doesn’t decide to socialize with others but on the other hand, she asks how she can get home. Even though the Emerald City and the Munchkin Country was wonderful, kind and marvelous, she was very disappointed when the Wizard of Oz left without her on the air balloon. Furthermore, when she arrived home in Kansas, she was exhilarated.
Animal Farm by George Orwell is a story about animals that rebel against their owners on a farm. They then try to solve problems on how to run a farm. One theme in this story is ”Not everyone is equal; some people believe that they are more superior than others.” This theme is demonstrated by Napoleon, he’s a dictator and makes all the rules in the farm to fit his needs. Another theme in this story is “People deserve to have their own thoughts and ideas. This theme is demonstrated by the animals, they have different thoughts about Napoleon from when he was murdering the animals just for having different ideas about him and other things.
In the beginning of the book, animal farm was run by a human named Jones. All the animals believed that they were treated unfairly and ended up rebelling against him. The farm however, was still in horrible shape, so Napoleon stepped in and told everyone that he would make it better. The animals listened to Napoleon because they weren’t sure what else to do, and they thought that the pig was truly helping out the farm and making their lives better. Nicholas was able to win over his people in the same way.
Passing a field, she encountered The Scarecrow, whom she released from his position held aloft in the field. He told her he wanted brains and asked if he could go with her to visit the Wizard. She happily agreed and the two companions (and Toto) continued along the yellow brick road to Oz. They helped save The Tin Woodman, who had rusted in the forest while cutting down a tree. He joined them, hoping to ask the Wizard for his dearest wish – a heart.
The greed of power will always blind the leader’s judgment. Napoleon was not excluded in this matter as he often takes advantages knowing that the animals cannot read or write. Although there are many examples to support this fact, but one stands out the most, Boxer’s ending. As can be seen throughout the story, Boxer is the one who worked hard for that farm’s welfare from the beginning to the end. His never-failing cry of ‘I will work harder’ often inspired the rest of animals to work hard despite facing failures such as destruction of the windmill for the second time.
Many people say life is full of obstacles. That goes very well with two characters, one a kid named Alfred from, The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp by Rick Yancey, and a lion from the short story, The lion and the elephant by Jan Payne. Even though one character is from a long adventure story and another from a short fable they show readers that life is tough and full of obstacles. Life is tough and comes with obstacles, that goes very well with the lion from, The lion and elephant. In the beginning of the story the lion was scared of how the cockerel would crow every morning and he would cry “go away” till he would go but the cockerel would not go.
The Dust Bowl Dust clouds, filthy homes, sickness, death, and migration were none other than the Dust Bowl. In the 1930s some of the toughest people survived this era. It wasn’t just the worldwide depression that made a lasting impact on the United States, the Dust Bowl changed the nation’s perspective on conserving soil and protecting the Earth. From the 1910s through the Roaring 20’s, farmers flocked into the Plains searching for wealth and prosperity. The farmers and settlers then plowed up 100 million acres in parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, California, Texas, and New Mexico, because there were some wet years..
I think that Dirk will survive because he now lives on a farm and he isn’t in the bad city. I don’t think Gary will survive because he is now left alone. He might not survive because the bullies might see that the dog is gone and become rude to him again. Dirk is very brave because he scares away all the bullies when they come close to Gary. He is very friendly to Gary when Gary gives him food.
Presidents of Progressive Era During the Progressive Era, America society experienced immense changes in regards to business, politics, ethnic. Taking on the huge responsibilities, the presidents of that period, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, actively worked toward equality and social justice. Following by the assassination of President McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, at his middle age with an exuberant personality, succeeded to the office. He was a preservationist, a trustbuster, promoting “Square Deal” and food safety policies. However, his major contribution to the era was on railroad regulation which eliminated corruption in interstate commerce.
The biggest accomplishment of this presidency was his program known as The New Deal, which Roosevelt introduced in the first one hundred days of his presidency as an attempt to reform the nation following war, depression, and greed. With the formation of the National Recovery Administration in June of 1933, industrialists were encouraged to establish fair working conditions, set prices, and minimize competition through “codes” which would ensure fair treatment of workers and promote the economy in general. The New Deal also sought to promote organization of labor through the Committee of Industrial Organization (CIO), which aimed to unionize major industries, even steel and automobiles (which had been extremely anti-union in the past). This is the most drastic shift that can be seen in the relationship between government and labor in the United States, and it is clearly in favor of the labor workers. This demonstrates that in the reform which seemed to end this period of unrest, the government finally began to consistently side with labor
I believe that throughout his film Fast, Cheap And Out of Control, director Errol Morris is attempting to shake the viewers of their complacency concerning animal issues and what constitutes an animal. Morris’ film consists of interviews with four men: A lion tamer, a topiary gardener, a mole rat scientist, and a robotics engineer. Through their interviews and the disorienting nature of the film, Morris reflects on the complicated relationship between humans and animals. One of Morris’ observations is that while claiming to care for animals, many still mistreat them. I believe the best example of this from the film is the lion tamer George Hoover.
