Eckleburg, which had just emerged, pale and enormous, from the dissolving night. ‘God sees everything,’ repeated Wilson” (Fitzgerald 159-160). The billboard of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg is symbolic of God because the eyes saw everything that happened throughout the novel in the Valley of Ashes, such as the car accident which killed Myrtle.

Scout ends up making Mr. Cunningham question what he is doing when he is trying to kill Tom Robinson. Quoted “He seemed uncomfortable; he cleared his throat and looked away.” The novel To Kill A Mockingbird does do a good job of comparing racism to a disease.

The song I chose today was “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons, and it relates to the book, When the Emperor was Divine. The song illustrates the situation of the Japanese Americans during World War II perfectly by showing us the dire actions we took. In the song, people were “checking on to the prison bus,” which reminded me of the Japanese being sent on the trains to the internment camps. Also, the lyrics say that they wake up to “sweat and dust,” just as the little brother described about camps. The words he wrote in dust the night before would be blown away by the new dust penetrating the walls.

Pope is famous for using a perfect rhymed couplet in his satirical and philosophical works The Rape of the Lock, An Essay on Criticism, and An Essay on Man (“Alexander Pope." Poetry Foundation). Alexander Pope wrote in An Essay on Man, Epistle I, line eighty-seven, “Who sees with equal eye, as God of all, A hero perish or a sparrow fall, Atoms or systems into ruin hurl’d, And now a bubble burst, and now a world” (“Eye,” Bartlett’s). In this context, eye is synonymous with a view. The quote questions who can see with a view equal to that of God’s.
McCullough emphasizes the latter as more apparent when Huckleberry gets Jim bit by a rattlesnake. Jim askes Huckleberry to roast the rattlesnake and use it as an antidote for the venom. This parallels the when "Moses made a serpent of brass and put it upon a pole, and those who looked upon it were healed. The brass serpent in the Old Testament becomes the roasted rattlesnake in Twain's version. "(McCullough 3) With the inclusion of these biblical parallels it can be said that the bible itself is a major structure of Huckleberry's adventure, which pushes him physically in a direction of biblical based adventures.
Paragraph 175 was a law criminalized homosexual acts between males written into the German Criminal Code between May 15, 1871, and March 10, 1994. The law was most notably acted upon during World War II, when men believed to be engaging in sodomy or loving another man were marked by an inverted pink triangle and placed in concentration camps. To seek out gay men, a unique section of the Gestapo (Secret State Police of the Nazis in Germany) was created. The Gestapo determined that men who touched or looked at another man would be arrested in line with Paragraph 175. The Nazis less commonly arrested lesbians, as it was believed that women who loved women could relearn their role as the caregiver and wife in society.
