Arnold grows up poor, and he knows of the struggles, alcoholism, and the outcome of his future would be like if he did not change the outcome. Arnold defied his odd chances and did something brave. He left the reservation and joined an all white, all American school. This is where my idea of American equality happened in this novel. It would have been so easy for the white male and female characters to outcast Arnold for being the only different nationality and color in the school.
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. Sinclair uses the protagonist of the story, Jurgis Rudkus to show the difficulties the family went through. In “The Jungle” immigrants were not treated right and Sinclair exposes the human flaws of people to show how the lower class society was mistreated. The family experiences this when “Ona was sexually harassed” (chapter 15) by an upper class, puppet to the capitalist society, Conner. This disgusting man took advantage of a poor immigrant girl.
You either “eat—or get eaten up,” which is represented by _________________ (54). Everything Balram did from when he left Laxmangarh to when he became successful and “helped make new Bangalore” was for his own advantage (273). When Ashok began drinking after Pinky left, Balram told him he had to “believe in god and keep going on” not because he genuinely cared for him, but because he wouldn’t have anyone to “pay him three and a half thousand rupees a month” (159). The selfishness imbedded in him led him to conclude that the only ticket out of darkness was to murder his master, which goes against his personality in beginning when he felt guilty for something as trivial as outing a driver for

He even says he’ll do more to improve the farm, and prevent a situation like this from happening again. With Boxer’s growing popularity, the reader finds that the supreme leader, Napoleon, feels threatened by Boxer. The animals obviously treat Napoleon like a king, because the animals
Boxer played the role of a hardworking horse, which is backed by his slogans and his desire to wake up earlier and do more work for the better of the farm (Orwell 70). Napoleon is threatened by Boxer since he is reaching the age of retirement and must be paid a pension, which would result in less food for the pigs and unrest in the animals if it wasn’t paid (Orwell 112). The betrayal of Boxer was the point of the story with the most tension, which could be perceived as the climax since it signals the end to animalism and the beginning of the collapse of Animal Farm (Orwell 122). Boxer played the role of the hard-working horse who turned into a threat to Napoleon as he reached old age, and his betrayal was an alternative climax to the story since it was the tipping point of the
Because the social ladder is built based off of race, Tom immediately gets cast to the bottom without a second thought. “Sorry” is italicized to illustrate the disbelief, which contributes to the fact that the public does not accept Tom’s honest sympathy for Mayella, nor do they even attempt to understand him. Because of this narrow-minded thinking, Tom’s biased persecution eventually escalates to his death. Another example of the little empathy the town possesses is presented in Scout’s third-grade classroom, where lessons are learned from current events. Given that To Kill a Mockingbird is set around the 1930s, of course, one day the topic of Hitler is brought up.

As a college dropout struggling to nurture his budding tech company into fruition, Bill Gates gave tremendous effort and innovation before finding stable success as the cofounder of Microsoft. However, even as immense riches began pouring in thanks to his hard work, Bill Gates remained humble throughout it all.
