Nature is one of the finest, non-materialistic gifts God has to offer. The morning dew on the beautiful green grass and shrubs, the way the trees sway side to side when the wind blows it 's breath towards them, and the way the ecosystem wakes up for another day of God’s most precious gift; life. It is truly disturbing how one can take something for granted, or in this case, the majority of society in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Clarisse McClellan, a very naturalistic, down to earth, rebellious seventeen year old bookworm who modifies Guy Montag’s perspective on the natural world, and the difference maker of the novel. Nature is such an underrated gift, and can impact a person 's life tremendously.
Upton Sinclair, a socialist, and muckraker rallied public outcry for labor equity, he launched a consumer movement through the midst of a harsh stockyard strike from unfairly payed wage workers, socialist writer. He is best known for his novel, The Jungle which underlined the devastating exposé of Chicago’s meat-packing industry. A protest novel he published in 1906, the book as a result was quite the shocking revelation of incomprehensible labor practices and unsafe working conditions that were held in Chicago stockyards. The description’s spoken in Sinclair’s book issued the truths about diseased and spoiled meat processes that were not regulated until he exposed them. Sinclair wrote the novel to portray the harsh conditions and exploited
In February 1906, Upton Sinclair would write and publish his fictional novel The Jungle. This book, which was intended to focus on the exploited workers in the meat industry would depict the unsanitary conditions for a mere 10 pages. Missing the point of the novel, Americans were disgusted by the conditions of the packing plants, rather than outrage at the mistreatment of the workers at these plants (Kauffman). The Jungle spurred new legislation, but this legislation wasn’t the first that called for such standards. In 1641, the Massachusetts Colony had passed the Meat and Fish Inspection document which prohibited selling “diseased, corrupted, contagious or unwholesome provisions” (Massachusetts Act against Selling Unwholesome Provisions).
Marigolds that have been exposed to high amounts of Cobalt 60 have been shown to grow with severe defects. The problem did not start with the flower’s blossoming, with its nourishment, or even with the surfacing of the first sprout. Before it was even planted, it was corrupted. The very seeds of the American Dream were sewn with prejudice, and yet we ask ourselves how its malformation came to be. The American Dream burgeoned in a time of xenophobia and sexism, and thus, its petals are laced with bias and corruption.
For a majority of the outside world, the United States of America was more than just a country. Many people from Europe, Asia and all over would do just about anything for the opportunity to move to America and pursue the well-known “American Dream”. Many foreigners immigrated to America with hope that the American Dream would allow them to work towards a successful career. However, in the early 1900’s this dream was far out of reach for most. Upton Sinclair’s 1906 novel, The Jungle, depicts the harsh environment and conditions of the Chicago meat packing industry as well as the amount of working class poverty.
“The Jungle” is a novel written by Upton Sinclair on a Lithuanian family that comes to America to achieve the American Dream. The family goes through many trials as poor immigrants, struggling to get wealth, happiness, and opportunities to succeed in America. Sinclair talks about socialism and its benefits. He also exposes the corruption of capitalism and the political system in America. An initial reading of “The Jungle” by Upton Sinclair might appear to be literary fiction, further analysis suggest that it is primarily a work of propaganda.
