When people make choices that could drastically change their life, the decision they make is based on the influence of others. In the novel, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton a gang called the Greasers is stereotyped as being the “mean types” that slack off at school. Then there are the Socs who are the rich kids with cool cars that happen to like “jumping” greasers. As these two gangs are rivaling, they both go through some dramatic events that change their perspectives on life. In the novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton the character Darrel Curtis is unquestionably influenced by his gang as it prevents him from being successful to becoming the father of the gang, and overall being someone to look up to.
The narrator’s tone varies somewhat throughout the novel as he appears to be bitter in the introduction, but also fairly straightforward and thoughtful. Throughout the book, he is tinged with
Realism draws great attention mainly on objectives from specific regions, such as: the settings in which characters live, certain traditions or practices they participate in and the language, or way, that characters speak. Optimism is very rarely used in the literary works of realism. Authors portray life how it really is in their work, rather than how readers may want it to be. Both romanticism and realism had huge impacts on the development on American literature, shaping the way readers choose to think and feel about what they are reading. Two specific authors who helped to shape and create these writing styles are Mark Twain, author of the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin, and Walt Whitman, author of the poem “Song of
On the other hand, even though Harrison had similarities in both versions of the story the differences are the ones that help the audience decide which one they like more. The movie showed Harrison as a 20 year old but the book showed him as a 14 year old, which plays more with the audience’s sympathy. The movie showed Harrison’s violent side more than showing pity like the movie, which shows when Harrison threatens the
Also known as: ‘’blood in, blood out.’’ Gang banging at such a young age became natural. It was all around me. My older brother was a gang member and kept secrets from me and always had it all. He had all of the respect in the city.
In the short story “Harrison Bergeron” the prevalent theme is, equality is not the key to a safe society. In “Harrison Bergeron,” the weight balls and ear radios serve as a symbol of unfair equality throughout the story. Without these tools, there would be diversity among George and Hazel's society.
Tv/ media is also a frequent motif throughout and it’s appearance draws our attention to the importance of media in controlling and convincing people. Yes, people are willing to submit to government. Even George, who is intelligent, is a law abiding citizen when it comes to removing weights from himself, even when the reader is led to believe that if not for his handicap and the grip of government control that he would ultimately come to the conclusion that the system is flawed. The idea of equality which is spread through the powerful tool that is the media, practically brainwashes people into tolerating the misery that is a world without good music, art, dance, ect. and constant physical and mental discomfort.
Reverend Hale, Judge Danforth, and Reverend Parris all were viewed as authoritative figures in The Crucible. It is true that all had power, but they all used it differently. The word “authority” many times is associated with the words “perfect”, “dominate”, “in charge”, and “in control”.
The second ideal from the Declaration is unalienable rights. The three unalienable rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Unalienable rights let people be able to own their own property and have certain freedoms. Everyone has to be equal in order to achieve liberty because people have to be equal in order to have the same freedoms. It is important for everyone to have unalienable rights because with these rights, people have the opportunity to be happy and the opportunity to live.
We are one nation under god. It means that we are all given liberty and justice. It doesn’t matter what skin color or what religion you are, we all have liberty and justice. The words “One nation, under god” means a lot to me.
Failure is perhaps one of the most influential things in people’s lives because it can alter the course of our actions, by teaching us persistence or leading us the opposite way. Through his book, Dr. Cleamon Moorer guides the readers through an intimate journey about his progression from failure to promise. Cleamon is from a small town of Detroit with parents, who love him and enforce discipline, but most importantly, they nurture his faith in Jesus Christ. He excelled in academics during both elementary and middle school, however, his mischievousness throughout those years earns him many disciplinary sessions. In high school, misbehavior becomes history, yet, his GPA suffers in the low C’s.
Friendship and overcoming obstacles are two that stood out to me, but I think the most important theme is that illegal immigrants are people too. Several times in the book, Joshua Davis talked about people downgrading the four boys and their families Americans treating them harshly. I think the book was trying to show us that there are more stories of illegal immigrants and that they are people too. I recommend the books: The Language of Flowers, The Glass Castle, and All the Light We Cannot See. All of these books are different from those that most teens read, and they all have great storylines and plots that young readers can take away
Fahrenheit 451 Theme Analysis Sir Francis Bacon once said, “ipsa scientia potestas est” or “knowledge is power” and we often say this to encourage education amongst others. However, the power and knowledge struggle in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a prevalent theme in the book. For example, books and other forms of entertainment of similar substance are banned and even burned regularly because of this. Also, many people (because they don’t know) are unwilling to learn and even go as deep as to fear them. The public fears knowledge of this capacity because the government makes them afraid, but the government is no different- they also fear an educated public that have opinions and to a large extent, free will.
