In response to this argument, we can see that while Araby does not jump outright with a political message, Joyce has a history of placing Irish propaganda in his writings. Writers write because they want to tell a story and Joyce’s purpose is to instill Irish pride within the Irish people. I want to also point out that Leonard’s writing is confusing. While he tries his best get his point across about Joyce’s writings, Leonard does so it a complex way. Instead of stating his criticisms outright, Leonard would go on to add irrelevant details that serve no further purpose than to get readers to space out.

Politics, as referred, and its negative situation in the North at the time of Heaney’s writing of the ‘Glanmore Sonnets’, was the result of British imperialism. Thus, cataphatic language is used in both sonnets I and V with subtle references to this imperialism, references which had previously been used in a negative manner. For example, in the first line of sonnet I the reader sees “Vowels ploughed into other: opened ground.” The phrase “opened ground” has been imported from ‘Act of Union’ where it refers to the wound left by British imperialism in Ireland. However, as this is clearly negative, the cataphatic use of language seen here serves to turn the phrase into something more positive. Cataphatic language is also used to describe the boortree in sonnet V. The boortree is the Scottish derivative of the English elderberry, with the latter also referred to in the sonnet.
The Catholics formed their own government called the Catholic Confederation, and had support from clergy and most of the Irish Catholics throughout Ireland. Upper class Catholics were less supportive in fear of losing their lands. As time went by the Confederation gained and lost holdings throughout the country and by 1649 on Dublin was left in their grasp. When the English Civil War ended with the execution of Charles I, English troops could set their sights on Ireland. Cromwell landed in Ireland in 1649 and quickly took the towns of Drogheda and Wexford through massacre.

The revival of American folk music was at an all-time high in the 1960s. The traditional sound of acoustic instruments combined with vivid lyrics provides an array of musical tones and styles that many people listen to today. Although many folk artists do not have an adequate presence in the modern musical society, several artists in the modern era use folk music in their albums. The British band Mumford and Sons has expanded folk music to a wider audience. Many folk artists such as Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie heavily influenced the work of Mumford and Sons.
Irish integration to America was a very important part of the immigration history of this nation. James R. Barrett, professor at the University of Illinois, writes The Irish Way: Becoming American in the Multiethnic City, an account of the story of second and third generation Irish immigrants whose experiences in America changed their lives in more ways than they could have imagined. The book primarily focused on the social history through; their shaky relationship with African Americans, politics and “The Machine”, religious opposition from other immigrants, and their strife in the workplace. Thoroughly developed with illustrations and facts, this book provides new insight into the topic of “Americanization” among immigrants coming to our nation.
The responsibility is on the citizens to get registered to vote. Many are too busy and do not have time. Others are registered, or at least they think they are, and find out on election day that there’s a problem and sometimes they cannot vote that day. Sometime voters are not aware and educated of the voting system and can get caught up by what social media/ news have to say about the parties and their candidates. As a result, they get caught up and end up not voting because they cannot decide who to vote for because of the influences that surround them.

It appealed to a significant and diverse group in order to provide a way of interpreting life that gave meaning, guidance, and personal satisfaction. Above all, fundamentalism had the benefits of appealing to a large society in the U.S. , especially in troubled times and periods of rapid transition. The roaring twenties were known as a period of sustained economic prosperity with a distinct cultural edge to the United States. Its cultural and artistic dynamism was focused on as an aftermath of World War One.
