My favorite book is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, he was born in 1894 and died in 1963. Written in 1931. A futuristic society where humans are born out of test tubes and kept in rigid social classes. This may not seem like a humorous premise for a novel, but Huxley uses satire, which is a type of humor used to make a serious point. The humans in Brave New World learn through sleep teaching, Huxley calls this “hypnopedia”.
The life experiences of Gandhi and Malcolm X have similarities. Malcolm X and Gandhi both have fought for civil rights in the countries that they both have lived. Gandhi did it by not listening and just doing what he pleased. Gandhi would get told not to do something and it would be perfectly legal but the British empire would arrest him for Civil Disobedience and then arrested again for sedition and sentenced to six years in prison. Malcolm X Ran into the same trouble Gandhi had, but was arrested for burglary and sentenced to 10 years in prison and got the nickname Satan for the teaching of hatred towards God and learned of the prophet Muhammad.
Inner turmoil is something that plagues nearly every character in John Steinbeck’s East of Eden. The struggle to accept the evil within oneself and the nature of this evil within life itself is very troubling and confusing to many, especially Cal Trask and Lee. Cal struggles over the idea that his evil tendencies are pre determined-his destiny-despite his desire to change. Lee, however, believes that evil is not a predetermined path or an inheritance, but rather something that you can change through self-determination and by embodying the idea of timshel and that with this change, one is cleansed of sin and achieves a greater good that somebody who has never sinned. John Steinbeck develops the idea of predestination and timshel through the
While Odysseus’ actions taken to punish the suitors may appear immoral in modern society, by considering the ways in which modern society differs from Homeric society, Odysseus’ actions are just in the context of the poem. As violence has an extremely negative connotation in modern society, the use of the death penalty is morally ambiguous, and is a highly debated topic; however, violence is far more legitimized in the society of the Odyssey, and therefore, death is a far more acceptable form of punishment. This idea is exemplified by the way in which violence is discussed between characters within the Odyssey. In particular, this general acceptance of violence is demonstrated through the fact that many of the characters within the Odyssey share an almost unanimous belief that the suitors should be put to death to pay for their crimes.
In the story “Harrison Bergeron”, the mood in the story helps the reader to interpret the horrificness of the situation. The situation is that society is against all inequality between human beings. If the government considers you to have an unfair advantage, you get a handicapper.
Does sin blind all aspects of reality for Pruitans? Do the hysterical cries of frenzied teenagers decide fate? The Crucible by Arthur Miller reenacts the Salem witch trials which took place in Massachusetts in the late 1600s. The protagonist in the play is John Proctor, an honest, hard working farmer and Puritan whom the readers later learn to have “fatal flaws.” (SparkNotes.)
Why do people become corrupted when they acquire power? Upon examining the force that power holds over people, I’ve come to conclude that it can be narrowed down to these few factors: The knowledge of power, itself, is destructive. It affects freedom of choice, and that knowledge, such as foreboding, is unjust because of the lack of control the person has about the situation (and the resulting destruction of a person it creates). Although there are differences between “Macbeth” and “Flowers for Algernon”, such as the roles of the supporting characters in the protagonists’ destruction and the purpose of their symbols, they are similar in the evolution of the protagonists in plot, their themes and the characteristics of their respective literary periods.
Classical Music Is More than Just Classic "Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents," (Beethoven, n.d.). Music has incline a part of a soul that lives through the day. The core of music is its competency that can create an atmosphere that affects a person’s mood. Each genre of music that repose in the present is adequate to cover any kind of situation that a person is currently occupying; likewise, music can be considered as a critical tool that is able to connect intimately with people.
A Clockwork Orange is a dystopian novel by Anthony Burgess, printed in 1962. The story takes place in a futuristic society that features a grouping of extreme youth violence. The protagonist Alex narrates the story of his violent acts and his encounter with the authorities trying to reform him from his evil self. However Burgess tries to persuade the reader that Alex is not such a bad person, as he appears to be by hiding a big part of the evidence of his violence through certain techniques. The biggest of them being Alex’s use of “Nadsat” a language created by Burgess, which combines English with some Russian words.
The once repressed Beethoven then began to express his rage and other emotions into his music into many political symphonies like Bonaparte (Erocia), named after Napoleon (Kerman & Tomlinson 225). What was unique about Beethoven’s music was the fact that it was centered around the feelings and spirit of the composer, which was unlike much of the classical music before his time. It was almost as if Beethoven was starting his own revolution. Beethoven’s self-expression music was said to be the start of Romanticism age in music because of how it centered around personal passions, instead of pleasing God or audiences.

They are controlled by inflicting pain. They will be deprived of their independence, freedom, maturity, and history. In the end what we hate will ruin us. Huxley believes that again we will be controlled by an authority in a burdensome manner, but the people will grow
(Thoreau). The decisions of the major part of society can sometimes exacerbate the morals of the nation as a whole. In times like this, there is an obligation to go against the government. As a matter of fact, civil disobedience is especially needed when the majority of decisions and choices are morally wrong and
