And those Zooks will be sorry they started this game. “We’ll dress you right up in a fancier suit! We’ll give you a fancier slingshot to shoot!” The author is trying to show that everything that happens is the others fault and is making fun of it by saying that he gets a better weapon and a better suit .Then he will win but he never actually used the weapons. The book states “Grandpa leapt up that Wall with a lopulous leap and he cleared his harse throat with a bopulous beep. He screamed, “Here’s the end of that terrible town full of Zooks who eat bread with the butter side down!” This was written to show how over exaggerated the Cold War was.They fought over who was right and each side wanted to get rid of the other
Though their outward appearances make it appear to be true, their real experiences and qualities prove that discrimination to be false. In the film, Patrick proves a rumor wrong to Kat when he explains: “I wasn 't in jail. I don 't know Marilyn Manson and I didn 't sleep with a Spice Girl, I don 't think. You see, my grandpa, he was ill so I spent most of the year on his couch… watching Wheel of Fortune and making Spaghettios” (Junger). The school placed a label on him from a small amount of information, just like most schools do today when they label nerds, band geeks, jocks, and popular girls.
Michael Frayn wrote the partly autobiographical novel ‘Spies’ in 2002 to explore what we would have made, as children, of an adult life. During 1940, there was a fixed idea about masculinity. Men that didn’t fight in war felt emasculated as called as chicken or many timid names. Perhaps Mr. Hayward is a comment on the unhealthy effect of this stereotype, which makes men being more aggressive to overcompensate their absent. In the novel ‘Spies’, Mr. Hayward’s barbaric behaviour is like an 'ogre ' because it is preceded by a sense of rudeness, giving Keith a false sense of family.

The world has been dehumanized, life felt as intolerable, the rise of Nazism have forced people to succumb to the beauty of brute force and for a majority that moves with the times there are few that refuse to understand because to understand is to justify. In Rhinoceros, postmodern absurdity has the features of the mass uprising of fascism, the tyranny of a metamorphosis that perceives evil as beauty. Bérenger, an ordinary middle-aged man, a semi-autobiographical figure recurring in few plays expressing the author loss and anguish at the absurdity of reality, watches his friends turning one by one into rhinoceroses, allegory of the consciousness of those who capitulate to the black spell of Nazi-propaganda. Only the idealist Bérenger stands alone unchanged against the violence of mass movement: I’m the last man left, and I’m staying that way until the end. I’m not capitulating.
For example, the taboo around Wiltshire’s house that made all the traders stop trading with him because islanders believed that his wife, Uma is tabooed. Wiltshire discovers that the belief of the islanders about the temple that has demonic powers is actually fake and not real. It is all made up by Case, as he had built the temple in the forest and tricked the islanders by some strange visions and noises. He figures out that the trick of the temple is made up by using luminous paint and Aeolian harps.

Upon visiting her family, she is disgusted at the sight of cockroach eggs (page 37) in her cousin’s house and she shows a reluctance to allow Baby to play with the village children, due to the fact that they have lice.

There are multiple little fun facts hidden beneath the surface. It’s like the actual wreckage; the more you explore the more you discover. Some fun facts are: when Kate Winslet found out she would have to be naked in front of Leonardo DiCaprio she flashed him to break the ice, they almost didn’t cast Kate because she had already been in so many period pieces Cameron thought it might come off as lazy casting, Leonardo brought his pet lizard with him to set but sadly the lizard was squished by a truck, Rose flipping off one of the characters is not historically inaccurate it was just considered not lady like, Leonardo adlibbed “I’m the king of the world!”, Kate and Leonardo became really good friends on set, Cameron drew all the sketches and it was his hand drawing Rose because Leonardo is such a terrible artist, the dinner scene was written the night before they shot it, most of the cast and crew were poisoned with PCP and had to go to the hospital, and when filming the dining room flooding they only had one chance because once they did it all the furniture would be
