These divisions crippled France’s government and economy, and incited those of the lower class to revolt and attempt to balance the divide. In his novel As I Lay Dying William Faulkner plays heavily upon this theme. In the novel, the primary protagonists are the Bundrens, an impoverished family living in the rural South who are constantly being put in bad situations. Additionally, they are consistently looked down upon by those around them for their seemingly uncultured manner. Faulkner parodies the struggles of impoverished southern families in As I Lay Dying in order to call attention to the imbalance of societal ideals between people of different socioeconomic statuses in the United States during the 1920s.
“....and in Beah’s case the arrival of the rebels in his small town meant sudden separation from his parents…”(Boyd 302). The quote above shows how barbaric Sierra Leone is by taking all these kids away from their parents, without their parents having a say in it. Also, its really hard for them to survive because they’ve never been alone and are “Terrified” (Boyd 302). So they had to make a decision fast and go to “Rudimentary training” to not be suspected and killed. Other reasons why Sierra Leone is a bloodthirsty is when Ishmael Beah went on an interview about what he had to deal with in his life, he stated that they made take drugs and that they had more drugs and gun ammo than actual
This affected David a lot when Rosie died as she was the only person left in his life. The discrimination of the castle people ruined this family because Jack thought that his son marrying a castle women “is dirtying the family name” (245).

“Barn Burning” is a very interesting story about a family and the hardships they face. Though the narrative focuses on Sarty Snopes, his father Abner causes many of the problems they encounter.

He would do anything so that he could live without the influence of a Shipley figure.

Literature review 2.1 Introduction Discrimination is still rampant in the world which exists between the majority and minority groups. Minority group is subjected to the discrimination and majority group discriminates.

Hinton wrote The Outsiders, she understood that there are many inequalities under the law that severely affected lower class and upper class people. These inequalities are still around today, as shown by the Ethan Couch situation.
