The answer is found in the context of the poem. In a society that is aristocratic, physiognomic and honorific, Thersites is simply a menace, not the noble insurrectionist a modern reader might see him to be. Rebellion is not celebrated, it is harshly subdued. No one is capable of rising beyond their station, where they are born, there they will likely die. An ugly and insolent soldier is not to be praised.
Troy 's hatred of his father acts as a catalyst for many moments in Troy 's life, in negative and positive ways alike. Unlike most fathers, Troy 's father didn 't leave him with a material possession such as a house but instead left him with emotional baggage that crippled the earlier and later parts of Troy 's life. From the beginning, Troy 's father was abusive to his mother and all of his siblings. Troy and his family worked hard on their father 's farm and endured his bitterness towards being a sharecropper. Troy states that his father was greedy and would put his own personal needs above the needs of the family.

How do you compare to this stricken mass gathered to affirm to you their faith, their anger, their defiance?....Why do you go on troubling these poor people’s wounded minds, their ailing bodies?”(Wiesel 68) Wiesel clearly is losing faith in God because he has seen babies burned alive, families killed together. Wiesel blames God for what has happened. Additionally, Elie Wiesel is not thankful for God anymore because he is not in Auschwitz helping him and the rest of the Jews. Wiesel feels anger towards God. For instance, Wiesel claimed, “For the first time, I felt anger rising within me.
He must have wanted people to feel compassion for him. Compassion is to love and care which is something he didn’t have. Compassion is something that the people of the holocaust needed. Let 's take the holocaust as an example from history that have made an impact on Myself and everyone else. The holocaust is a really sad event that really gets to me.
You cannot help him anymore. And you are hurting yourself. In fact you should be getting his rations…”(Wiesel 110). This kind act that Elie is doing for his father is costing him a lot. His only source of nutrients, he’s giving it away to his father that isn’t making any use of it.

Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, he tells a tale of that decade, which appears glamorous but is filled with corruption. The novel makes a naturalism argument about the impossibility of changing social class, revealing that only a facade of mobility can be achieved through debaucherous actions. Firstly, the impossibility of social mobility can be seen through the characters that attempt to become upper class through more traditional, “moral” ways.
1984 Synthesis Essay Poverty negatively influences how the minds of people work in the world. The fact that poverty exists itself, obstructs people from changing their circumstances in what is known as “the cycle of poverty.” The lower class is incredibly disadvantaged in that it lacks the necessary social and economic resources needed to increase chances of social mobility. In return, the absence of these resources may increase poverty.

In the novel 1984, George Orwell illustrates a classic example of why the proles are reluctant to change their lifestyle-simply because the costs outweighs
So, because of this we are forced to live in squatter settlements called Hoovervilles (shacks that housed millions of unemployed). The name of the towns was to mock the president for allowing the hardships to last as long and as difficult as the Great Depression was.

Paul and most of his friends died before he could see what the outcome would be-it’s almost as if their entire experience was useless. I felt for Paul, because in the end he explains that even his feelings were nothing: “...all that floods over me are but feelings…” The fact that eventually all the soldiers would be nobodies, and that the war would cause them to “fall into ruin,” made me unhappy. I think that the impact WW1 would have on those in the society left to carry on would be outright devastating. Everything the soldiers have been through have left them to become a hollow, insensitive, nobody. Those left to carry on would not fit into their society.
