Arthur Miller was one of the many people accused of communism during the Red Scare, being called before the HUAC (“Arthur Miller” 11)Because of the many similarities shown when comparing The Crucible and the events of the Red Scare, I believe Arthur Miller wrote his play to shine a light on the ridiculousness and true reality of the events that occured. Firstly, the Red Scare was a time where the United States was extremely divided, both socially and politically, and citizens were terrified about communists spreading their ideas of communism (Foster 2). This pandamonium stemmed from ideas of McCarthyism, strong anti-communist values (Goodman 1). McCarthyism, to some, was believed to resemble totalitarianism due to “the demagoguery, smear campaigns, informers, purges of the civil service and education system; the blacklisting of writers, artists, and entertainers; and incidents of book-burning” (Goodman 1) that both had in common (Goodman 1). To combat the spread of communism and to calm the overall panic people had at the time, the government created the House Committee of Un-American Activities
By concluding with the resilient Kenny Dobbins, Schlosser gives the reader Kenny’s entire story which becomes more and more appalling as they read on. The author’s reason behind the conclusion of the chapter is to express the worst stories of slaughterhouse employees that become so shocking the stories themselves can be seen as unbelievable, but are sadly true; Schlosser uses the most dramatic story to portray how atrocious the owners of the slaughterhouses are, the story is used to justify his arguments against the slaughterhouses and is proven with the careless treatment the corporations have toward their own employees. Chapter 9: Analyze how Schlosser combines logical and emotional appeals in this chapter to create an effective message. In other words, how does he manage all this scientific data, making it easier to understand and read? Cite specific strategies such as diction, analogy, facts, and cause and
The authors of the dystopian stories, all demonstrate the theme of an oppressive government which assists them in showing how the government has the power to destroy society by stoning people, putting restraints on them and even using nuclear bombs, which all cause the death of innocent citizens. One important theme in Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” is the theme of dangerous tradition.
He uses hyperbole, to evoke emotions from the readers. He uses words such as “ strong and striking language of the insane” and “ horrible and disgusting absurdity” to show his contempt towards Frankenstein(passage 1). The anonymous reader also uses an analogy to prove his dislike towards Frankenstein. He compares Frankenstein to “Mad Bess” or “Mad Tom.” He is
I do bite my thumb sir.”(1.1.45-52). This shows that Montagues are just trying to cause trouble. To bite your thumb at someone means you don’t like that person and you disrespect them. Do to this a huge fight start in the streets between the servants. Another example is “By thee, old capulet, and Montague, have trice disturbed the quiet of our streets”(1.1.85-89;91-97).
The Play The Crucible written by Arthur Miller, is a book that explains the salem witch trials and how it relates to the cold war. During the cold war and the red scare everybody was scared that they were gonna get tried for being a communist. Everybody was scared in the crucible also. Arthur Miller explained the relationship really good. He used many different satirical devices, such as parody, incongruity and exaggeration.
“Iago belongs to a select group of villains in Shakespeare who, while plausibly motivated in human terms, also take delight in evil for its own sake” (Bevington, 2014, p 607). Understanding his sense of self might reveal another tragedy regarding how egos across the human condition demonstrate unique frailness. “Critics often debate Iago's motives. What drives him to act as he does? Some people believe Iago is simply, but purely, evil, doing immoral things merely to be bad” (Hacht, 2007, p, 657).
Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, the carelessness of the characters, immorality, and many mistakes the characters made brought about chaos in the novel. The Great Gatsby contains a large amount of immorality in it, so much so that much chaos arises and some people even die, as was the case with Jay Gatsby and Myrtle Wilson. Many characters in the novel are extremely immoral and make an immense amount of careless mistakes. The decision-making skills in the characters’ minds are awful, they do not know that some things are bad for them, for example back in the 1920’s alcohol was illegal, but all the characters in the novel still drank even though it was outlawed, and also having affairs outside of your marriage as well, represented by Tom and Myrtle. Overall, The Great Gatsby is indeed an incredibly immoral novel.
War comedies, for instance, have an underlying theme in which war is negative and horror filled, but to say it outright show the grotesque horrors of war would get the movies struck down and hated and coming out and publicly speaking of the negativities of war would get the speaker labeled as a coward, weak and unpatriotic. There is also people such as John Stewart or Stephen Colbert who use comedy and satire in order to bring upon a great justice, to inform the people of the news and current events. While many consider their work to be funny, it also carries with it knowledge, in a medium in which it can be well understood and well received. Artists like Charlie Hebdo, drawing political cartoons that mock violent ideologies, die because of their messages, showing just how large the cause actually is and just how important the humorists really are. Without someone to speak the uncomfortable truth, in a way the people will listen, the world would not be where it is today.
The man ran because he believed that the monster was about to hurt him, from the monster 's gruesome appearance, the man automatically assumed the monster was evil. Again because of his appearance, in which Victor created him with, many people often created similar reactions to that of this man.For example, the villagers would throw rocks at the monster to make him leave. This reaction made the monster feel even more terrible. First impressions are still a great part of society as well as the instant judgment on someone. Another example in todays society, someone could be driving around town and see an African-American male in a fancy care, the first thing that they could think of is that this man has stole someone 's car.This is an example of a common stereotype.
