In today’s society there are many people who prey on the defenseless and the innocent. I believe that these people are modern day monsters. This group of people of course includes gangsters, sex offenders, and terrorists, who commit atrocious acts against fellow humans. However this list also includes unjust governments like the Islamic State who will behead anybody who doesn’t follow their oppressive Sharia law, and the North Korea government who throws any of its citizens who has a political disagreement into a prison camp. If there are monsters in society then there has to be heroes, and I believe that the heroes are the people who stand up against the monsters.

In “Monsters Are Do on Maple Street” by Rod Serling, The events and character actions advance the plot because without them you wouldn't develop a deeper understanding of the story. As quoted in the passage, “Whoever was in that thing that came by overhead... I don't think they want us to leave here.” Tommy explains what he believes is happening when he sees something abnormal flying through the air. He tells the neighbors what the object that flew through the air was and what it symbolized.
Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis explores the concept of a person’s behavior being controlled by their unconscious and conscious mind. Almost all of the literary works that exist tend to have a conflict that pertains to either the plot or the character. In Leo Tolstoy’s fiction novella “The Death of Ivan Ilyich”, he writes about the life of a fictional character named Ivan Ilyich and his conflicts that he deals with throughout his adulthood. Tolstoy specifically writes this novella in an interesting order by beginning the story after Ivan’s death and then continuing the story before his death. Another significant character in the story is Ivan’s son Vasya.
Emmett Till Research Paper Equality and civil rights come with a price. A price that has been paid through the centuries due to racism.

Perceptions from others can be cruel. Criminals are often thought of negatively by themselves and are also disrespected by others in society.

The novel Monster by Walter Dean Myers highlights the various perceptions that exist about an accused criminal.
The familiar sound of a door creaking open was, once again, what disturbed my sleep. Instead of jumping to conclusions, like any little girl would do, of monsters going bump in the night I knew what it was. It was scarier than any monster could ever be. It was my dad, leaving. Every night my dad would wake up at one o 'clock in the morning and get ready to go to work.
George Henry Lewes once said, “Personal experience is the basis of all real Literature.” Using personal experiences in appealing to ethos in political writing is common among most writers. Some will argue that they could care less about the past situations of the writer, but I see personal experiences as an opportunity for writers to speak truthfully from their own experiences and not from the accounts of others, which ultimately leads to a greater influence on the reader. The use of experiences shapes who the writer is and how they view society based on these encounters. This in, combination with the author’s ability to present his or her ideas, can greatly affect the audience’s view on the topics presented.
As an author writes their story, their ideas don’t just come from thin air. These things that they write about stem from their personal experiences and views. John Steinbeck wasn’t any different in this sense. In fact, The Grapes of Wrath draws many parallels to Steinbeck’s own life. While writing the book, he took these things into account, and applied them to the Joads and those around them.

The Belmont Report was written to protect human subjects in research studies. This report led to the creation of the Institutional Review Board Guidebook, which was last updated in 1993 (IRB Guidebook, 1993). Protection for human subjects began with the Nuremberg Code when judging the human experimentation done by the Nazis (IRB Guidebook, 1993). Other studies had been conducted using human subjects that led to the Belmont Report. One such unethical study is Johnson’s Monster Study that was conducted in 1939 on a group of orphans (Reynolds, 2003) that violated the Institutional Review Board guidelines, and should not be repeated.
