Restricted but not Forgotten Literature, old or modern, has always been subject to criticism and judgement due to the issues that exist within classic novels. Whether the issue contains profanity, violence, or content too mature for young readers, concerned parents and students continue to threaten to ban and forget award-winning books’ existences. Unfortunately for Ken Kesey’s classic, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, restricting the novel is potentially the only course of action. While the book displays violence unsuitable for high school curriculums, libraries must continue to include Ken Kesey’s classic novel. Although the novel teaches valuable life lessons about individuality and is mild compared to modern media, high school curriculums
In the time that the men were on the ice, there were shortages of food and the dogs didn’t help because “The dogs required a seal a day.” As you can imagine during a food shortage and you have a team of dogs that’s a lot of seals, and that’s not good now is it? A result of the dogs quickly eating all the meat the men had stored was that they were all shot. Even the food the men were eating started turning against them. Too much seal meat gave the men gas “The men suffered from a diet of that consisted of almost entirely meat. Constipation and flatulence (bad gas) made the men more uncomfortable.”(67).
Friendship and misery take part as Candy 's dog follows Candy around but suffers all around, “his ancient dog lifted his head … peered … and then painfully got his feet” (28). Candy 's dog symbolizes the misery of life, and its nature brings from the pleasure of the early days to the desolation of the last remaining days. Misery is seen through Candy’s dog as everyone suffers, from Candy’s broken hand, to Curley’s wife isolation from the men
The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read. Many people also feel that this book is irrelevant to student’s lives. However, kids should learn what life would be like for kids at their age in a different time period. Like what was stated before, in a history class, when we learn about the history, we learn about the straight facts, not as much of the personal lives of people living in that time. Since the novel is showing the personal recollections of one boy in the time period, students can identify the similarities between the two lessons.
Lastly, they are ¨stored¨ in terrible places, usually in their own feces and urine with minimal food and water, sometimes not enough to survive. This is a very important topic because every year at least 100,000 dogs are sold from puppy mills (The puppy mill project*). Another act of cruelty aimed towards dogs is dogfighting. Dog fighting is a type of sport in which dogs are forced to fight one another for the entertainment and/or profit of spectators. ¨Although fights
In high school, we would have weeks to pick a topic, create a thesis, outline the paper, write the paper, and then revise the paper. In college, the time restraints are not quite as lenient. Throughout this course I have learned time management is the key to success and to be more productive with my time. I have always had issues with writing due to things like grammar and sentence fragments. But this class has been a gigantic assistants to me.
There is a lot of stories about how a person can abuse a dog and hate the dog, but each morning the pup wakes up happy and forgiveful. That dog doesn't remember that there owner abuses them, the hound simply forgives the owner. That is loyalty.This quote is from the dogington post. “When the World Trade Center collapsed on September 11, 2001, nearly 10,000 emergency rescue workers joined in the efforts to help. More than 300 of those heroes were dogs.” These dogs were lowered down from helicopters to sniff out the people who were hurt but still living, and the bodies of those who had passed.
Striving to create a legacy through his fiction like his favorite fantasy authors had, Bradbury began publishing his writing out of high school. His love for science-fiction is evident throughout his work, especially in his novel Fahrenheit 451, a story that depicts a futuristic world intent on eradicating books in order to maintain an ignorant, unquestioning society. William Golding also incorporated his past experiences into his writing; however, unlike Bradbury, Golding’s later life influenced his stories. Being a grammar school teacher after college, Golding found writing inspiration in the unruly young boys he taught (“William Golding”). These children undoubtedly shaped Golding’s vision to write Lord of The Flies, a story in which a group of British boys stranded on an island disastrously attempt to govern themselves.
This quote is important because it shows that even the highest-minded people curse. This is important because yes, there are curse words in books, however, people can learn so much from a certain book, even with a curse word in it. High minded people can curse and have extremely informational books that can open up a person’s mind to the world and they can learn so much from that person, therefore, it is harsh to ban a book like that even though it has a curse word in it. Banning books takes away some important lessons children need to learn to be able to develop better and grow up smarter. “It is the unknown we fear when we look into death and darkness, nothing more” (Rowling 26).
There are many books with usage of profanity and slurs, and many people have accepted it as okay, but many find it as a disgrace. One argument that book enthusiasts often bring up is that the very books that are being banned and challenged teach great lessons to children and even adults around the world. Children should also learn to face these explicit things at a young age because they need to prepare for those things when they are older is another belief of many people. Many people believe that banning books is unnecessary, while others--especially parents--think the content should be kept unseen by their children. Many parents believe that their children should not be unprotected from explicit content.
