The Roaring Twenties was a time of drastic reform; both in social regards and many others. One of the many things that had been born from the twenties is undoubtedly the American Experience. To people at the time, the term American Experience meant a plethora of things. It was a term that was unique to each individual, and stood for their goal, or maybe the lack thereof, or perhaps it stood for their own character and defined their whole life. Regardless, the American Experience was entirely adaptable; writing from the many authors that stemmed from this time had proved that to be true.
The Mask Behind Equality “Harrison Bergeron”, a short story by Kurt Vonnegut Jr, is about a 14 year old boy named Harrison Bergeron. He lives in the year 2081, where anything and everything is equal. The people who were very intelligent, had to bare handicaps so they did not take advantage of their minds.The handicaps were bags with lead balls worn around the neck, and an earpiece that would send out loud noises to stop all train of thought. Harrison did not like the equality laws, as he wants to be Emperor. One lesson the story suggests is that equality can be harmful.

Lastly, the Monkey King’s story uses conflict and keeps the readers wanting to know how the conflict is dealt with. All three plot elements were successfully used to create emotions within the
In its most basic sense, justice is the concept of rewarding good and punishing evil. Although this concept seems simple, history has shown that it is by no means as black and white as one would think. In Boxers and Saints, a graphic novel set about the Boxer Rebellion in 1899, Gene Yang exemplifies that justice is indeed complicated. After finishing these graphic novels, readers are left with the question of whether justice is ever really achieved, and whether evil is always punished and good is always rewarded. Yang thoughtfully includes each character to show that justice is never perfect, and while justice can be achieved in some cases, in other situations it may not be.
“Monkey Paw” by W.W. Jacobs shows that magic can affect you in good and/or bad ways if you don’t earn what you wish for.

For example the family wished for two hundred pounds to pay off their mortgage and in exchange there son died and they got a sympathy grant of two hundred pounds. Why would this happen?
The Jungle-People clearly despise the Bandar-log, and for a good reason. In The Jungle books by Rudyard Kipling the Bandar-log act similarly to typical bullies. The Monkey-People believed that they were better than the other animals and to express that they terrorized the weak. Their mere everyday actions were foolish and downgrading. The Bandar-log even manipulated the unsuspecting Mowgli into thinking they were caring, kind, and welcoming, but they are certainly far away from that.
This Chinese community, which consisted of Hop Alley and an ethnic ghetto, allowed immigrants to evade Colorado's unwelcoming atmosphere. Hop Alley, as dubbed by Denver’s white residents, was suspected of housing heathen immigrants, dealing in copious amounts of gambling, prostitution, and opium. Various columnists were quick to attack, using yellow journalism to feed readers’ simultaneous fascination and contempt for Hop Alley. However, Chinatown’s inner workings provided for its inhabitants a refuge from Denver’s harsh prejudice. In this ghetto, Chinese immigrants were free of prejudice, and “could find goods and services denied them elsewhere.
(You should note that at the beginning of this paragraph I said “drives me insane” which is a perfectly good substitute, or even “drives me bonkers”, or “crazy” but not bananas)! When I was old enough to understand the world a bit, I actually was very happy with most of the things I saw. It makes a monkey proud to see such glorious things such as monkey bars being named after our kind. If you have never been on the monkey bars, or at least not in a very long time, I advise you to do so; for they are just pure joy. I mean really wonderful.
He does so by adding in the characters Chin-kee and Danny. Chin-kee is the Monkey King, Emissary of Tze-Yo-Tzuh (the big god in the novel) disguised as a very stereotypical Chinese immigrant who often visits his American “cousin” Danny. Danny is a regular American with a wacky cousin from China, who is secretly the second main character the reader meets in the novel, Jin after he forfeits his soul to become “normal.” Jin perceives Chin-kee as a nuisance that ruins his social life whenever he comes to America. He sees Chin-kee as the person he essentially never wants to see again because of his grotesque way of life, although ironically being Asian is not as bad as Jin sees it. Most of the other characters see Jin as a typical American and do not really care that he is Asian.
Malcolm was changing America and the trip he took to Mecca was exactly like the trip Americans, at that time, needed to take to realize that everyone is equal.

also to have a good education. It means that I can say "The Pledge of Allegiance" and that I can vote for the President,and the Mayor. But to me it means most of all to be free and to be proud that I live in the United States of America because not all people have the benefit of being free some people out there are fighting half killing each other just to support themselves and their families.
