In the passage “What is poverty?”, the author Jo Goodwin Parker, describes a variety of things that she considers to portray the poverty in which she lives in. She seems to do this through her use of first-person point of view to deliver a view of poverty created by a focused use of rhetorical questions, metaphors, imagery, and repetition to fill her audience with a sense of empathy towards the poor. The author’s use of first person point of view creates the effect of knowing exactly what she is feeling. “The baby and I suffered on. I have to decide every day if I can bear to put my cracked hands into the cold water and strong soap.”
Humans are awful, Only the human race is capable of taking a blank slate, let it sit through 12 years of education and at the end of it come out truly no better than where it began. Humans are innately flawed from their beginning. Humans are able to take a full grown loving person and deface and devalue them and make them meaningless. An example, Germans were willing to exterminate millions of Jews in part because Nazi ideology taught them to think of Jews as subhuman, as objects without the right to freedom, dignity, or even life itself.

There is one story that does not. “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs is not a horror story because there is not a monster, it is not believable, and it does not have a creepy setting. Classic horror stories usually have some sort of a monster in it, whether the monster is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde or Frankenstein.
Welcome to the Monkey House Reading Questions Write down three parts that surprised you and explain why… Three parts that surprised me in Welcome to the Monkey House were found in the short stories “Harrison Bergeron”, “The Foster Portfolio”, and “Deer in Works”. First, the short story, “Harrison Bergeron”, surprised me for many reasons; one being the fact that every American is fully equal because of Amendments 211, 212, and 213. The surprising part was the moment the law was broken and an American became smarter, uglier, stronger, or faster than anyone else, society would become reckless and in rage. This was surprising because we as individuals living in America right know, can see that we are from achieving this kind of level of equality. The second part of this short story that surprised me was how George, who has left the room to get a beer, returns and asks Hazel, his wife, why she has been crying.
The 1930’s was primarily encompassed of the Great Depression. The stock market crash of 1929 led to a downward spiral of the economy, and many families were forced into unwanted unemployment.

While women were becoming dominant in the work force, their profound role in society was overshadowed by many outdated Victorian Era gender biases. Many companies continued to utilize and portray the wide array of gender assumptions through various advertisements.
