Have you ever been blinded by the emotions jealousy and greed? Jealousy and greed can confuse you and act as if they are love. In the book The Crucible, one of the main characters surrendered to the lust of her “love” and ended up being the reason for many innocent killings, even the one of her love. For this reason I strongly believe jealousy and greed had the biggest impact on the book. Though I can see how some readers may think vengeance had the biggest impact on this book, Abigail's jealousy of Elizabeth Proctor led her to tell lies and her greed of wanting John Proctor’s love all to herself, drove her to start the killings of innocent people.
This is for documentation as to reason why my daughter Cadence Lookabill has had so many unexcused absenses.

I have taken her to the doctor for these issues and they just send her home saying there is nothing they can do, so I didn’t take her on those days. If she had strep throat or any other illness I did. Cadence was given notes for the dates in question, she did not get the notes to the appropriate person and after she failed to give them those notes she threw them away.
In today’s world, many muslims are given the stereotype of being terrorists. This is far from the truth, most muslims are peaceful people but they are given this stereotype because of the muslim terrorists out there and how little most people know about muslim culture.

Vices are harmful, they cause harm, not just to the victim, also to the community and themselves. Indeed, in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, vices are so strong that they always overpower the virtues following the lives of Jem and Scout Finch. Throughout the book, vices are shown in characters such as Aunt Alexandra, her presence of a mother figure is overpowered by being sexist, Lula, the church goer from First Purchase who proves to be a hypocrite, and Bob Ewell, father of Mayella, were both being racist. People may not be perfect, but they could at least
Many African American authors and critics very strongly disagreed with how the white plantation owners and the slaves were portrayed in the book. For example Nat Turner’s first slave owner, Samuel Turner, was presented in very high light. This was probably not the case, and that is the reason it enraged so many readers. The book was also banned in some places because of the sexual violence that was portrayed in the novel. Before I get into the book itself it is important to know about the actual person who was Nat Turner and the rebellion that he led in 1831.
Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness is a classic novella, which is studied in several high schools and colleges. Although this book is considered brilliant, it has stirred up a lot of controversy regarding its gender-bias discrimination. Conrad’s depiction of women is silent and sexist. He refers to women as having no voice and disdained by the paternalistic narrator – Marlow, who admits to not understanding the world that women live in. This has bothered many readers of this novella, and in particular, Sandy Andersson.
In the novel, “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston brings to light many themes such as gender roles and women’s rights. When the novel was published in September of 1937, it was not welcomed by society which was mainly due to the fact that most citizens of the United States were still very conservative and racist with their social views. With a country such as this, a literary work that rebels against society's ideals of segregation and minimal woman's rights was disrespected after its release. Like the quote above, many excerpts in the novel portray this theme of women’s rights through the use of various literary devices, such as analogies and symbolism. Zora Neale Hurston’s use of analogies in the way she describes both the male and female views on life is beautiful.
Delaware’s first attempt at sports gambling was a colossal failure. The state launched the same kind of parlay betting, or sports lottery, just as Oregon did. Although, Delaware tried it thirteen years earlier in 1976. The NFL immediately responded with a temporary restraining order against the state of Delaware for “irreparable harm.” However, their claim was quickly denied by the courts, but the lawsuit became a moot point as Delaware’s sports lottery failed abruptly due to incompetence.
In the discussion of marriage, one controversial issue has been abuse. In the 1800’s there was uproar over the novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston. Some women claimed that female abuse was finally being exposed. However, many feminists were outraged that Hurston displayed the problem of abuse so lightly. They claimed she downplayed the severity of husbands abusing their wives.
But that doesn’t seem like a good enough reason to change a big part of the novel. Taking out the “n-word” would not only be taking out some of the history but also some meaning and significance of the novel. Many readers see To Kill a Mockingbird as a racist book because it shows the whole truth about that time period. The “n-word” was just part of everyone’s vocabulary back then it was used many times even in the same few sentences like when Atticus’ daughter Scout asks: “Do you defend niggers, Atticus?” (pg 77).
‘Don 't you want it?’ I said ‘You can wear it a while’” (Salinger, 212) At the end of the book we find out that Holden is in a mental institution and he was telling his whole story to his therapist which shows that Holden really did need help.
