The Grapes of Wrath: Family Separation The Dust Bowl migration in the United Stated was a historical period of time when families from the midwest would pack up everything they owned and head west to find work in the 1930’s. Along with taking everything they could, families would try to stick together. In John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck demonstrates the inevitable separation between families while migrating to the west. Some readers may argue that Steinbeck’s theme of The Grapes of Wrath was to unify families as they struggle to migrate west, but he mainly displays separation within families as their journey goes on.

She did not see a reason in continuing on this ride, which appeared to be leading to pain and misery. The promises of love died like the Pacific Trade Winds forgetting their promise to keep the tropical islands cool.

After reading Mere Christianity it became apparent that his use of rhetorical devices is unlike any other. He has the ability to portray his arguments in a way that his readers could understand. This quality is quite impressive and every writer, who is trying to persuade, can definitely look upon his work to see a glimpse of what great persuasive piece of writing looks like. SUMMARY

Introduction The Life of St. Antony by Athanasius was a very important book to the Christian Byzantines and was continuously read throughout the early Christian world. It was a biography that was also held up as a model of the ideal life in the Byzantine civilization. The author himself, St. Athanasius, was a man that would have preferred the monastic lifestyle, but was an important and influential man in the church and therefore, contrary to his wishes, had to live among the people. This colours his perspective and most likely makes him somewhat biased in the way that he describes St. Antony.
