The American dream states that any individual can achieve success regardless of family history, race, and/or religion simply by working hard. The 1920’s were a time of corruption and demise of moral values in society. The first World War had passed, and people were reveling in the materialism that came at the end of it, such as advanced technology and innovative inventions. The novel The Great Gatsby exploits the theme of the American Dream as it takes place in a corrupt period in history. Although the American Dream seemed more attainable than ever in the 1920’s, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby demonstrates how materialism and the demise of moral values in society leads to the corruption and impossibility of the American Dream.
What if technology was being used and abused but you never knew about it?

The people are not just equal before the law, but they are equal in every way. The agents of the United States Handicapper General put handicappers (technological devices) to take away the people’s differences.
Gone are the overused expressions and ideologies of the Romantic period. America is a recently united country that realizes the depth and representation of issues that the pre-war literature era lacked. The quote by Henry James, “When history is so hard at work, fiction has little to say” is a complete reflection of the work of the Realism period. Real experiences became an important tool to describe issues uncovered by changes in society instead of fabricated and exaggerated tales. Leaving behind the overused themes of the Romantic period, authors from the 1860s to the early 1900s created a fresh style of writing to depict new changes in America after the Civil War.

There are numerous similarities and differences between the Modern American Society and dystopian societies of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, the film 2081 by Kurt Vonnegut Jr, and The Gathering Blue written by Lois Lowry.

After an encounter with death, we are transformed into people almost fully directed towards the Other and become devoted to a society of those committed completely to Alterity, and therefore to future and continual change of this kind. This process therefore does not happen once, it happens every time we encounter death. We encounter Alterity, and so are continually transformed and resurrected. Through death, Levinas put, we will become devoted to such a continuously transformational society constrained by the commitment to serving and respecting
