Although several people in the book To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee symbolizes the mocking bird , I believe Boo Radley strongly emulates the symbol of the MockingBird. Boo Radley is misunderstood by society and seen as a monster or as a scary man, just as the mockingbird was. Although Boo was seen as a threat to society, he never hurt a soul, he shared things with the kids like soap figurines of them. Boo jumped to action when he heard the kids being mugged by mysterious man. Jem says it would be killing a Mockingbird if they persecuted Boo Radley.
She would give away her clothes, her toys, her food, anything. These attributes come along with anyone who is naturally loving and giving towards other people.

Katniss’ struggle to maintain her authentic self represents a strategy to navigate the problems of the world as she tries to feed her family, fight against her competitors to survive the Games as well as fighting against oppression in society. She assumes a public persona amidst maintaining an identity to win the audience’s favor to get help at key points. However, she is not charismatic and thus struggles with knowing the right things to do and say in addition to making decisions on how to go about such issues. Collins seems to assert that crafting a public persona is not dangerous as long as it plays out well as it happened to Katniss by, for instance, getting more sponsors (Collins, 10.24). However, the person assuming a public persona should learn the distinctions between what is real and is fiction.
She starts off as a well-respected female in her district despite the fact she’s poor. Her hamartia of caring too much about other’s survival leads her to her downfall where she volunteers to risk her life in the Panem Games for her sister during the Reaping.

When Peeta gets a serious wound from a sword stab, Katniss’s tragic flaw forces her to go out of hiding and obtain medicine, leading her to her downfall of almost getting killed by another

In the novels, Brave New World and 1984, the authors take the positive social aspects and values of community, identity, and stability and corrupt them into a dystopian society. While both books may come as a shock to the system, seeing as they both focus on aspects we are to scared to admit could possibly happen and seem wildly different at points, there are a lot of similarities between the two. Aldous Huxley’s novel is set in a world where the society is kept very carefully balanced: “The World State’s motto, COMMUNITY, IDENTITY, STABILITY.” (Huxley 1). For example, the means of reproduction is just as closely monitored and controlled as production is.
ENVCUL Module 13 Discussion Assignment Question #4 Rachel Carson’s opinion on pesticides differed from the scientists and chemical companies she criticized because those scientists and chemical companies claimed spraying pesticides on agricultural fields was necessary to ensure Americans and the rest of the world got enough food to eat. One of her opponents and representative of the chemical industry, Dr. Robert White-Stevens, warned of “starvation, disease, and death if pesticide use was restricted (478).” Although Carson didn’t disagree that pests need to be controlled, she thought the ever increasing toxicity of pesticides used and their unfettered application was dangerous. Unchecked, people would eventually suffer from side effects.
My ardour for Literature grew when I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Both novels are similar and revolve around self-discovery. As a reader, it makes me feel like outlaw reading novels about knowledge and reading being a crime. In Huxley 's Brave New World, those who accept the new world lose their humanity. Bradbury shows how the lack of books can give the government too much power.

But in the Giver, people aren’t trapped in their world; they can get out if they wanted to.
