In John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath the theme of comparing the rich and poor occurs consistently throughout the book. On page 266 when Casy spoke about the rich man with a million acres, he made a statement about even though he owns so much land and has so much money, he may feel poor inside. Steinbeck uses repetition by restating the word “poor” many times allowing the reader to comprehend how the word ‘poor” means more than just the lack of money. He also compares the rich man and Mrs. Wilson. The man being who everyone desired, rich and owning a lot of land. While Mrs. Wilson was just another migrant, very poor and owned nothing besides what could fit in the car. However, Steinbeck refers to Mrs. Wilson as more wealthy than the

Grapes of Wrath is similar to Roger and Me with a couple significant differences. Both groups of workers were losing their jobs, but the land workers in Grapes of Wrath were losing more than their jobs. The tenant men would no longer work in the fields but they were also losing their homes at the same time. In Flint, when the factory workers were laid off, they still had a home to live in for at least a short period of time and would have had food in their cabinets. They had been paid well and possibly had a little money in the bank. The factory workers could stay in a home and look for work. The land workers (and families) were immediately kicked out of their homes. They had to vacate the premises, load up in their vehicles and move. The tenant families barely had enough to eat when they were able to work the land. They had very little in their cupboards and no money. There was no cushion at all for field working families.
The Dust Bowl refers to the time of a severe drought that stirred up windy dust storms in the midwestern states of the United States during the 1930s. This disaster destroyed crops, job opportunities, and farms which led to the migration of thousands of farmers and their families from the Great Plains to the west coast. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck illustrates the Joad family trying to escape from the devastating effects of the Dust Bowl during the 1930s. “Gastonia’s tragic 1929 strike gets deeper look” from The Charlotte Observer portrays the story of a famous union activist named Ella May Wiggins who was killed at the age of 29 during her fight towards justice for wages and working conditions during Gastonia’s 1929 Loray Mill strike. The Grapes of Wrath and “Gastonia’s tragic 1929 strike gets deeper look” both relate stories of people striking for justice of workers like Jim Casy and Ella May Wiggins did but were later killed while fighting for the cause, the stories portray women acting as leaders like both Ma Joad and Ella May Wiggins did repeatedly, and they also reveal the death of sick babies like Rose of Sharon’s child and Ella May Wiggins’ child.
Was a War 71) or the “quality in the people of Dover that may well be the key to the coming German disaster. They are incorrigibly, incorruptibly unimpressed” (Steinbeck, Once There Was a War 47). To some extent, the rhythm of these dispatches mirrors that of The Grapes of Wrath, as Steinbeck records the intimacies of conversation and then pans to the broader vision of the war effort in England (Parini 412).
Mrs. Tall in the story The Tall Woman and Her Short Husband should be a big role model for any “diverse" person single or married. Being a role model to all people can change a person’s life you will see this at the last paragraph how the thinking of the tailor’s wife was changed. The patience, devotion, stress, and hospitable traits of Mrs. Tall make her a divine seamless person to describe.
How far would you be willing to go if a loved one of yours got murdered and you knew the murderer? Well Hamlet himself was faced with this question and he went with the bloody way. On his quest to murder his uncle, several others accidentally died as well. So we ask ourselves were Hamlet’s actions justified? Was he in the right for murdering not only his uncle, but many other innocent people living in the Denmark Castle. Personally, I do not think that he was justified.
In the psychological community, behavior is thought to be heavily influenced by situation as well as inner character. This extends to the psychological and moral aspects, as Pauline Hopkins so eloquently states. They say the best way to see what a character is truly made of is to break them. In The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck deftly executes this by putting each and every character through rigorous trials and tribulations. Some rise up to meet the challenge head on, while others fade away. The children are resilient, they will adjust. The elders are stubborn, to uproot them would surely mean death. It is in the adults that we see the most variety. Though the men are said to be the strength of the family, and it is only their breaking that
My mother, Elma Haney was a proud and very strong-will woman. Strong-willed is a kind nice way of saying whatever was on her mind, she would share with you. Now if you asked for that option that was your own fault. There were plenty of times she would give you advice you did not solicit. On a side note for those who know me, that is where I get it from. I would love to say that is something I am working on but that would be untrue. Therefore I will own that flaw and blame it on my mother.
