because they both at first did not see industrialization as a threat to the economy, but as time passed and innovation and demand increased, they both saw the corruption and issues that must be resolved in order to achieve a stable economy. They both depended on some sort of organization that needed to possess the support of a political leader or reforms that can be the change they both so desperately desire. The farmers wanted someone to speak out for them as they were continually being ignored this was similar response and feelings the industrial workers felt toward the way United States stood at the time. The both sought to destroy monopolies and their corruptive,abusive ways, they fought for the justice that they deemed needed to be served. This era has been a way for the progressive era to finally make those changes, the Gilded Age was set up for what was yet to come to life.
Frank Capra’s 1934 black and white romantic comedy It Happened One Night set the pattern for future “screwball” romantic comedies. The story is set during the depression era and focuses on the unlikely paring of an heiress and an unemployed news paper journalist. The conceited and spoiled heiress has rejected her lavish lifestyle and ran away. The film clearly projects how love is able to cross over class conflicts and monetary differences. Unexpectedly, the film became a runaway box office sleeper hit, and won the top five Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Adaptation (Robert Riskin), Best Director (Frank Capra), Best Actor (Clark Gable), and Best Actress (Claudette Colbert).

Political machines, labor injustices, and unethical business actions ravaged the government. These actions of society created the upper and lower class. By the late 19th century, the economic difference between these classes was immense. Which is why in the Gilded Age, 70 percent of children age 5 to 18 were actively going to school. Historically oppressed Americans, the poor, female, and nonwhite, began to understand the impact education should have on their lives (The Gilded Age).
Although the rise of industrialism was a plus during this time, the damage left from losing jobs was a problem that should've been dealt with to make the era a better time period. Treatment of the poor was handled in a way that shows the uncaring characteristics of people alive in this time. Life was very difficult for those in poverty, and the social classes of the Victorian Era didn’t handle the issue in a way that would've resolved it. Even though this time of English history holds many problems and flaws, it did have some brilliant writings, art, and literature as an outcome. Overall, the point of poverty England reached was truly unnecessary and should’ve been taken care of in a better
12) In chapter one, the author uses examples of imagery to foreshadow the upcoming tragedy that Ellie will face. Although Ellie realizes that harsh conditions are approaching, similar to the growing darkness when a day transitions into night, he does not have any clue about the extent of the horror that is to come. The “growing darkness” can be translated into their hope quickly extinguishing, leaving only a depressing feeling of emptiness. In addition, the title itself, Night, portrays Elie’s hope decreasing, parallel to the decreasing amount of light during the night time. Furthermore, the quote, “No more Fear.
Following the unexpected discovery that she does not also have a penis, the two go out to watch the "grow-ups doin' ditry things" (Eisner 167). They silently watch the rape of Rosie; their first introduction to sexuality also shrouded by violence. The inherent loss of innocence of these two boys culminates in Petey's alarmed expression as he says "Wowee!!" as he leaves the scene of the rape and Willie standing on the balcony in the second to last panel of the novel being told that he "is the man of the house now" (Eisner 172, 179). The loss of innocence through violence and sexuality made its way through all ages in the graphic novel, leaving Willie-meant to represent the author Will Eisner-to take in and deal with the aftermath in the final panel, shrouded in darkness and the background covered in thick black
Elie from night begins the story as a child who cries when he prays and begs to learn more about his religion “I cried because… because something inside me felt it needed to cry” (4). Inhumane circumstance led to a cause of tears of confusion. Two key themes for inhumanity are lose of faith and also inhumane. Through the book they are oodles characters who try to hold onto their faith, but after all the inhumanity lose it. In fact, when passing by the crematorium Elie shows he is no longer afraid of it “very close to us stood the tall chimney of the crematorium furnace.
As a first generation Latinx, society made personal prosperity feel intangible or like something I shouldn't be striving for. The profoundly personal essays in James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time engages the reader to feel the pain, despair, and even the hope, through the Negro man. The intimacy of the opening letter struck my being, disclosing to me that “this innocent country set you down in a ghetto (...) in which it intended for you to perish” and that “the limits of your ambitions were set forever.” I fell victim to stereotypes set forth for first generation Latinxs, and I didn’t allow myself “to aspire for excellence: I was to make peace with mediocrity.” Baldwin's solutions of love and acceptance however, heightened the value I saw
“Twelfth Night” is a comedy written by William Shakespeare, in which the central theme is love. The readers are presented with the classic form of comedy that includes the following elements: separation at the beginning, humorous and absurd situations between the characters, and marriage(s) at the end. Nevertheless, the author also incorporated ingredients distinctive of the tragedy. For instance, there are several sad scenes and some of them are even bordering on cruelty. Furthermore, some of the characters (even some of the good ones like Antonio) did not get their happy ending.
