Larson also chose to include some backstory of Holmes and his life after being caught for some of his crimes and not just how he chose to kill his victims. Larson really tells the full, and true story of the Chicago world’s fair surrounding Burnham and Holmes. The most impressive part was the incredible detail that Larson included, while keeping the story nonfiction, and historically accurate. I was able to learn about the huge amount of planning for the Chicago World’s fair and what it was like for the average visitor. I also got to learn about the serial killer H. H. Holmes, and how different crime was treated back then.
When people’s azaleas froze in a cold snap, it was because he had breathed on them. Any stealthy small crimes committed in Maycomb were his work” (Lee 9). Scout recalls Boo with a negative connotation, claiming he is nearly a criminal. Much like the rest of the children in Maycomb, she judges Boo without
This apathy that is shown is where the danger lies in a deserted, waiting street. Even the innocent mockingbirds were silent, showing that even individuals who recognized the injustice didn’t have enough power or motivation to make a difference on their own. Lee shows readers the irony in getting into someone else shoes, because the fear and pity surrounding Tim Johnson did nothing to
Al Capone’s crime boss “ Torrio” was the one who had mainly influenced Al Capone into the life of crime in the city of chicago and had “Torrio taught Capone the importance of maintaining a respectable front while running a racketeering business” (History) , After some time Torrio had made Al Capone his second, his “right-hand man”. Al Capone had done many different crimes around the city of chicago with had made his name more popular and notorious around the city, mostly including bootlegging, prostitution and gambling.

Staples understood that he was unwelcome in the store and left wishing her a goodnight. As Staples was growing up in the sixties he says how he was “scarcely noticeable against a backdrop of gang warfare, street knifings, and murders” (2). Around him he sees his friends, family, and neighbors, “all gone down in episodes of bravado played out in the streets”(2). He is fearful from these things because at any point in time that could be him who lays dead. In the essay he even says, “ Where fear and weapons meet-and they often do in urban America -there is always the possibility of death”(1).
My 1920’s mobster setting for Macbeth is based on my interest in the time period and the mobsters that ruled the cities and applies to the theme of power and control that is portrayed in Macbeth. In this version Macbeth is similar to Al Capone. He rises to be the most powerful mobster in control of the city and all its inhabitants and eventually becomes corrupted and gets caught and thrown into jail. He spends his time in jail focusing on his loss of power and drives himself insane convincing himself that he’s still who he once was.
The only scenes included are those of which the town can form an opinion of Miss Emily. “We did not say she was crazy then” (Faulkner). The narrator tells the story as if a group of people sat around gossiping in a small town. The town gossips because they are nosy and curious, Emily kept to herself and did not come out of her house much. “WHEN Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at least ten years” (Faulkner).
Loneliness is a state of sadness caused by a lack of friends or company, it is the quality of being remote and isolated from people whether it was by choice or not. In John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie are hired at a ranch for a new job. They meet Curley, the boss’ son, who does not like Lennie and always wants to start problems with him. They also meet other interesting people such as Candy, Crooks, and Curley 's wife.

Most of the people who went to the bar were criminals who admired O’Banion for his safe cracking skills. The people at this bar got him into his life of crime.

The black market which was led by several mafia organizations, was the cause of this, which basically led to worse social conditions. New York and Chicago were the main states that rose to power through the successful selling of illegal liquor that the mafia organizations offered, but New York was the main home of a dozen big time mobsters. New York became one of the nation’s largest market for bootlegging alcohol. The mafia organizations found ways to avoid being detected by law enforcement during the prohibition. Some of these crimes included money laundering, bribing law enforcement, smuggling, and bootlegging.
The mob was full of ruthless, heartless men who all had a common goal, to make money. They would do whatever necessary to not only protect their illegal activities but also to expand their criminal empire. Local gangsters not only controlled the alcohol industry, but they also controlled the police. They used bribery and corruption to convince law enforcement to look the other
