Lily Haghpassand English 9 September 20, 2017 In the book, “The Anthem”, the government has found a way to maintain peace and harmony in society by instilling fear into its constituents. The members of this society are taken from their parents at birth and thrown into a world where differences are frowned upon and sameness is put above all other things, brainwashing each child with the notion that everything the government says is true. When children are born, they are denied bonding time with their parents and placed in the “Home of Infants” with other children their age and the idea of sameness is stressed. By doing this, they take away the emotion of love, among other things, and in turn, create a society of seemingly identical individuals.
As the viewer can take note, Frank continues to be extremely flirtatious with Mrs. Warren and thus tries to make her give in to temptation. Tracing back to Act II, Mrs. Warren regrets the decision on ever kissing Frank because she knows of the incest taboo which strikes Mrs. Warren with a realization of her moral standing in society. On the other hand, Frank knows of Mrs. Warren’s past by listening to Rev. Samuel talk about the letters he wrote to Mrs. Warren, which later speculates why Frank is acting so flirtatious. Since Frank is seen as a do-nothing penniless man, he has to try his hardest to find a woman who has money and will show him love. That is why Frank acts disgusted behind Mrs. Warren’s back; he acts distasted because Frank knows
Have you ever watched "the Red Hearts" commercial? This is a commercial produced by Ben Lifson on November 24th 2013 that tries to convince people to purchase some form of health insurance. In the commercial, we watch people living as normal circumstances, and accidents might happen and do happen unexpectedly.

According to his essay, Grant-Davie explains that the rhetoric situation is a discourse of a single subject by "several rhetors and audiences" (Grant-Davie 350). Rhetorical situations are also divided into three elements: rhetors, audiences, and constraints.
Politics: a constant debate between right or wrong and moral or immoral.

Literary Analysis of Anthem One could say that a woman that grew up in a strict, un-individual society would be all for gender equality, but that is not the case for Ayn Rand’s book, Anthem, which shows a very primal, sexist, view of women. Rand shows this view as it evolves throughout the story when Liberty first meets Equality and is a cold, merciless, and unkind woman, to becoming a completely obedient, submissive, servant. The ongoing relationship between Equality and Liberty shows Ayn Rand’s viewpoint on women, that when they are in the presence of an independent man, that they will become submissive. “We found garments and the Golden One gasped at the sight of them”(Rand 91). This is an example of a typical stereotype, that all women are obsessed with clothing and their appearance.

Puritan’s harsh beliefs represented the beginning of the Nineteenth Century in the newly colonized America. Their community ruled with an iron fist: unforgiving, pitiless, stern.

The purpose of John Steinbeck’s passage is to demonstrate the decay of the inner city as the city expands and grows. Steinbeck illustrates his purpose through the use of various rhetorical devices. Steinbeck’s use of imagery helps him achieve his purpose. Throughout the passage, various descriptions of poverty-filled, dirty, and negative images help him show how the inner city is spiraling towards a much harsher, ill city as time goes on.

On the other hand,

This is a literary analysis on the novel 1984 by George Orwell. 1984 is a more recent classic dystopian novel. Written in 1949, it's based in the future year of what is presumed to be 1984. It focuses on the life of Winston Smith, a member of the newly established Party that rules over a territory called Oceania and that is led by a man called Big Brother.

This novel analysis will touch briefly upon a few different subjects, such as symbolism and style, and the theme of the novel.
