Just by reading the title of Philip Levine’s poem, “They Feed They Lion”, the reader is already given the implication that the poem may be somewhat cryptic to the non-analytic eye. After analyzing the title carefully, it becomes clear that the author was implying that the lion is a symbol for something bad. Just by deciphering this, one can deduce that the title is a metaphor for a group of people feeding into the said thing that is bad. Once the reader reads the poem several times though, it becomes painstakingly clear that the lion that Levine is talking about is the unprecedented hate that is so ingrained into human nature. A part of human nature that most members of the human race constantly feed into without fail.
A quote in book IX was, “Nohbdy’s my meat, then, after i eat his friends. Others come first. There's a noble gift now.”. (400) This quote creates an effect which is building up the tension between Polyphemos and Odysseus. This is building up tension because he saying that Odysseus is his food then the whole sentence is saying that he would eat Odysseus last as a gift.
Buck was symbolically London struggling for the success and domination, learning the law of club and fang, “put into harshness” and finally becoming the wolf. The third level, was political and philosophical, the doctrines of social Darwinism in fictional form. The fittest of survival by adaptation to the man with the club and the strength of the herd, by this adaptation man or dog may be temporarily defeated but ultimately will triumph. Man or dog becomes hardened to nature physically and also hardened spiritually to greed, thievery cunning, violence and individualism in society and nature. Finally, when man and dogs has gained sufficient strength and craft, he may prey on those weaker than himself, knowing that, as London saw it, “Mercy did not exist in the primordial life.
The last example of neologism is, All Flesh, which means the shop to purchase various type of meat. The reason why this is classified as neologism because the use of generalization to describe a particular aspect and the limitations used in literature. Biblical languages are used to show the relationship between language and power of words. For instance, the name Martha, in the novel the name is used to classify the housemaids in the house, and serve other people that have higher statues than them. This again shows irony, how the name is used with limited respects compare in the bible, because the name translates to ‘lord’ or ‘master’ which is opposite and the bible tells how people are respecting the person Martha.
Jack, on the other hand, acts more with the ID, the animal part if a human, with his decisions as a leader. Jack favors food over the shelter, which is the total opposite of Ralph, in fact, that is what he promises his people when the split of the two “tribes”. He told all the littluns that he promises feasts of meat every night and a lot of fun. In chapter five of Lord of the Flies gives a great idea of how Ralph is like as a leader. When he calls the littluns with the conch shell and has to remind the littluns about the rules he says, “‘The rules!’ shouted Ralph.
While the poor people of Ireland continue to breed, the rich will have elaborate feasts and dinner parties with the meat of peasant’s children. The idea of the poor raising food for the rich as a solution to poverty is ludicrous as well as highly ironic. The rich will continue to enjoy the luxuries of the upper class such as wealth, power, and fine dining, while the peasants raise their meat for them. The upper class is undoubtedly the British that rule over Ireland, and by eating their oppressed they show their power and superiority. Swift is commenting that British control in Ireland is as treacherous as people eating their own babies as means to survive.
After I have read The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, I have really believed that it time for us to change how the meat, especially sausage, is made. Why is it that the meat we eat can be made with animals, even rats, running over it? I believe that more regulation should be put on the owners so that the meat is clean, without “...meat that had tumbled out on the floor...where the workers had tramped and spit..and thousands of rats would race about it.” (Doc. D) This is not a job that people would want to work at just because of the disgust. This industry has to be changed with stricter regulations that protect the workers and provide uncontaminated food to the
Critiquing this phrase, I agree with footnote 9 and 10. Bierut (2007) “ as any working designer can tell you, commercial work is a bitch. If you do it for the awards, it is hard way to get them. If you do it fir the money, you have got every penny twice over”. If advertising a dog biscuit throw commercial was spotted to be for society or other cultural purpose then what made the dog biscuit have the consumer attention.
Thus, Williams makes use of characterisation, stage directions, and props to reveal how Stanley’s powerful, yet negatively portrayed characteristics, represents the social group of the working class of modern America. Williams focuses on Stanley’s bestial behaviour to show how the "normal" behaviour of people of modern America is aggressive. This animalistic representation is first depicted when he hurls a bloodied package of meat to his wife, Stella (14). Williams’ use of
Symbolism in The Jungle, by Upton Sinclair Upton Sinclair’s, “The Jungle”, is a revolutionary piece of literature. The tell-all exposé actually caused the United States, in 1906 to start monitoring the meatpacking industry closer, for the safety of the country’s inhabitants. Sinclair didn’t think it was just to be selling bad meat to fellow Americans. This story, since it is journalism, it doesn’t actually have much symbolism, but the three ideas I’ve decided to discuss are: the title itself, Packingtown, and the meat. The Title: The Jungle, is a major key to the story.
Are laws against pit bulls fair? According to BSLcensus.com 's map, breed specific legislation (BSL) is a law that is currently being enforced in twenty- nine states of the United States. Breed specific legislation is a law that bans or restricts certain dog breeds that are deemed vicious, dangerous, or aggressive towards humans and other animals. The breed of dog that the law mainly concentrates on is the "pit bull". Many dog lovers, pit bull owners, or just dog owners in general feel that the pit bull should not be discriminated against just because of its history, looks, and a couple of undisciplined dogs.

Are pit bulls dangerous dogs or are they just stereotyped? When comparing all breeds of dog, pit bulls are a good choice for a family dog in spite of the common misconception about their aggressive and unpredictable behavior. Pit bulls are known for a reputation of being vicious and aggressive, but really pit bulls aren’t any more or less dangerous than other breeds. These misconceptions are usually a result of people being uneducated about pit bulls. The news gives a lot of false information about pit bulls such as: pit bulls are unpredictable and are more likely to bite, they will attack sooner or later, and pit bulls have locking jaws.
As a whole, Rifkin argues the importance of treating animals with respect based on the fact that animals share characteristics with humans. I agree that animals do deserve to be treated with respect and honor, but should animals really be treated like human beings? One must look at the imperfect world we live in, it is man against man, the survival of the fittest. This evolutionary concept even takes place in the animal kingdom, one must hunt and kill for survival. Thus, will giving a pig a toy or assuring that animals are happy, change the fact that they be slaughtered and become man’s source of nutrition?
The muckrakers of the progressive era not only satire the political wrongdoings but also rose a concern for consumer’s health. The publication of the jungle by Upton Sclair showed the reality of meat packing factory of Chicago. This caused the public outrage which soon caused the government to pass the Meat Inspection Act and the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 (Pure Food). This step of regulating the food by act was remarkable in terms of consumer’s health. Till today the freshness of the food is maintained by this act and is an important achievement achieved during this
