Through the worker’s assumptions and diction, Steinbeck demonstrates how negative stereotypes drive negative behaviors and beliefs. Because of their own assumptions, the men on the farm have a biased opinion of Curley’s wife before meeting her and result to the use of derogatory language and rumors. The diction by the men leads to original characterization of Curley’s wife as a mean seductress, with little value or brains;
He was nullifies of his freedom suddenly when he was caught and confined in a cramped cage. The bird wanted desperately to “fly under the rice moon [that night],” but of coarse, the humans could not understand. The bird was exchanged frequently between street vendors, repetitively pleading this wish, but with no success. No one can take pity for it because they do not know what it is going through. A kind man buys the bird at a great price for his daughter, who was ridden in her room as the result of an unfavorable fever.
SHOW CONNECTION Jon Kurht’s article “When helping doesn't help” is a personal narrative discussing Kurht’s experience managing a homeless shelter, and discussing the hardships and complications that come with helping the homeless. Kuhrt notably states that shelters “actually bred further cynicism and depression in those young people because many were ashamed of what they were doing - they knew they were profiting from the naivety and kindness of others.” Logos can be found within the reasoning and conclusions found by Kurht.SHOW CREDIBILITY Amy Taxin and Geoff Mulvihill’s blatantly titled article “Don't help the homeless, critics say - it hurts them” works as a counter to my claim. The article describes how the good intentions and actions, such as camps and free resources (toilet paper, showers, etc.) only enable and prevent the homeless from a desire to move. Logos helps to develop the claim.
Blame is the belief that a person or inanimate object is responsible for any outcome whether it be good or bad. People often resort to blame to fill the idea that they were not the cause of the outcome but someone else. The quote from the book It’s Not My Fault: The No-Excuse Plan for Overcoming Life’s Obstacles “ We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take responsibility to own it and make it better.” written by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend has a way of morphing its way into the blame assigned to the characters of Romeo and Juliet whether it be at Friar Lawrence for marrying them or the families for letting their hatred for each other grow. Blame is assigned to the deaths of
He is called in several sources as a half man. Holden Caulfield was this kind of person and as it is expected from a picaro, he rejects conformity, reigning social conventions and shallowness of the 50s America. The estrangement of Holden rises with every page of the novel and we notice that his living in the established order is impossible. People around discomfort and disappoint him so he permanently says “People never notice anything” (9) / “People never believe you” (37) / “People always clap for the wrong things” (84). “The negative characteristics of Holden like swearing, smoking, tactless and disrespect that he shows to people around him makes him a typical anti-hero and rebel that doesn’t suit the society around him so, consequently, turns into a victim of it”(Berezhna 42).
Baldwin then acknowledges that they majority of leaders cannot make it into congress due to racism. He also tackles on the newspaper such as Amsterdam that is located in the black community such as seeing that it only shows rape, murder, and other types of violence. The next title “Journey to Atlanta”, goes more into depth as James Baldwin explains how the Progressive Party is not welcome in the community of Harlem. However, Baldwin describes the reason why Blacks hate politicians due to “they have been best trained to expect nothing from them; more than other Americans, they are always aware of the enormous gap between election promises and their daily lives (73).” Moreover, Baldwin transitions to jazz band located in Harlem called The Melodeers who were invited by the Progressive Party to sing in the south, Atlanta. As arriving in Atlanta, they have found that the politicians were using the group of jazz singers as a method to win non-white
It was Atticus’s reasoning, Calpurnia’s kindness, and the black community’s love that allowed the children to stand with them. The third reason that Atticus should not have defended Tom Robinson is because their Aunt, Uncle, and cousin show disgust. When Atticus and his family go visit some of their immediate relatives, the tension is evident. Scout's Aunt and Uncle don't agree with Atticus’s decision and their disgust is clearly shown. Their disgust even rubs off on their only child, Francis, who acts like an annoying fly that you can't swat away(simile), taunts Scout with cruel words.
One of the most negative forces destroying at young black people in America today is the widespread art, music, and literatures appearances of what a black individual is supposed to look like and how that individual is supposed to convey themselves. In “Nineteen Fifty-five” and “Sonny’s Blues both short stories is taken place during the 1950’s. Both authors are reminding the readers about the radical political movements and racial situations from the civil rights
Crooks cannot have friends because of the deep racism that took place during this time which makes him lonely and have hatred towards “white” people. However, he decides to risk the punishment of violating the rule of racial segregation when, “Crooks scowled, but Lennie’s disarming smile defeated him. ‘Come on in and set a while,’ Crooks said. ‘Long as you won’t get out and leave me alone, you might as well set down.’ His tone was a little more friendly.” (69) Crooks decided to change his tone with Lennie when he realized he wasn’t going to leave. Loneliness is a big issue within Crooks because of his skin color which separates him from the others on the ranch.
King’s efficient writing. Dark, visual metaphors were strewn across his letter such as, “Too long has our beloved Southland been bogged down in a tragic effort to live in monologue rather than dialogue,” and “There comes a time when the cup of endurance runs over, and men are no longer willing to be plunged into the abyss of despair.” Descriptive visuals such as these, express Dr. King’s own perception of the horrendous despair the negroes experienced. Thus, in parts of his letter, King would allow his desperation to spiral out in long anaphoric sentences such as, “But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers […]; when you have seen hate-filled policemen curse […]; when you see the vast majority […]; when you suddenly find your tongue twisted […]” (p. 809) which emphasized King’s desperate tone and purpose of writing the response. Allowing himself to become vulnerable and express his own personal feelings the reader is able to perceive Dr. King as a more genuine, and authentic person, thus absorbing and caring what he has to
