In “Welcome to the Monkey House”, Kurt Vonnegut satirizes the conflict of ethics in government by producing an obscure and almost-humorous plot in the short story. Readers today would never think that there would be a secret resistance of people protesting the eradication of sex in daily life. Vonnegut uses this example of satire to warn against the future consequences of complete government control. The theme of regulated reproduction, in an overpopulated world, is also presented in Kurt Vonnegut’s “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and
Wallace equips sarcasm to his portrayal of lobster boiling to further convince his readers of their corrupt eating habits. An example of this device is when Wallace satirically explores whether “lobsters are more like those frontal-lobotomy patients one reads about who report experiencing pain in a totally different way than you and I.” (Wallace 63) In this context, the writer challenges those who say that lobsters don’t feel the pain when they are boiled. Wallace argues that the damage is still taking place, regardless of whether or not lobsters feel it. His sarcasm not only makes the article comical, but he illustrates the counterargument through this satirical way. This allows readers to automatically laugh at anything else that goes against his own
Wittman creates characters that allow for an actor to express their individuality as opposed to forcing the actor to fit the character stereotype. He himself pretends to be the folktale figure of the Chinese Monkey King with shape-changing abilities that would allow him to metamorphosize into any culture if he were not held captive by Buddha. The ability to fit into any culture would serve Wittman’s needs as an artist trying to fit into a community. Wittman realizes that his art is an outlet that allows him to express himself and escape the judgment of others by fashioning his own identity. Wittman wants to be the “first bad-jazz China Man bluesman of America” (27).
However, the Court interpreted the Act in a way that made it harmless, and instead used it go against interstate strikes, since they restricted trade, revealing how unsuccessful the government legislation was at curbing businesses’ corruption. On the other hand, according to the Pageant, the Interstate Commerce Act, though not revolutionary, helped stabilize the businesses. The Pageant felt that the Act was still a significant red-letter law, and it did prove to be a good stepping stone for an effective legislation that curbed corruption. Furthermore, the Pageant believed that even though the Sherman Anti-Trust Act had legal loopholes, it still threatened the power of the monopolistic businesses and introduced a revolutionary principle. Unlike the perspective of Zinn, the Pageant argued that both these acts helped start the transformation from private greed to public need, while Zinn strongly believed that the government legislation was not effective at curbing the corruption, highlighting a difference in perspective.
For example "Let 'em eat the cake and thank goodness they don't eat bamboo because we need it for the pandas, they're more important." The sarcasm makes the reader convey the point but in such a way that it makes the point stronger because it's hard for the reader to disagree with Goer's
Dynamic characters add mystery to a story. Since they are always changing, people never know what is going to happen. In “The Monkey’s Paw”, Mr. White could have made many different decisions about what to do with the paw. The fact that he chose to make wishes was only one of the few things he could have done with it. Dynamic characters also help there to be more details in a story.
Lulu Asselstine Mrs. Olsen LA 8 5 November, 2017 Stereotypes and Perspectives When looking at a bunch of bananas in a grocery store, people tend to choose the perfect spotless bananas, since stereotypically food that is perfect looking, with no flaws, taste better. However, people soon realize that when you start to eat bananas that have more spots and are imperfect they turn out to be sweeter and better.

In The Outsiders, S.E Hinton presents the idea that teenagers can break through stereotypes if they look at life through another perspective; as shown in the book when Ponyboy starts to talk to Cherry and Randy and realizes the stereotypes about them are false.
The poison/ dark parts in the book Cannery Row makes the novel a deep commentary on human society. It shows that, in the real world, these type of things and happen; Steinbeck does not sugarcoat human society. The poison in the creampuff acts to balance and anchor the rest of the novel to a more realistic world. The poison keeps the novel from being much like a fairytale where they live happily ever after at the end. It gives the novel a more realism and it is also use to balance some of the comical parts of the novel.
Stephen King, an American author of horror, once said, “Books and movies are like apples and oranges they both are fruit, but taste completely different.” In certain situations, change is beneficial. Likewise, when directors change the script it can make the movie better. After viewing the movie Raisin in the Sun we realized that it added more information. Without question, the book fails to add more information. There are many similarities in the book and movie but in the book some scenes are cut out.
