From those experiences of dealing with her father, a psychological analogy between nature and peace was instilled in Ginny’s mind at a young age, and is what she relies on as an adult to handle her emotional trauma. Additionally, Ginny constructs a metaphor, as she asserts that “a seed is a contract for the future” (Hudes 16). To Ginny, planting a seed guarantees that she will soon be able to visually see the fruits of her labor, and will be able to relish in the joy of creating new life. This point means that imagery is as vitally important to Ginny as it is to her story, as her visualization of the future of her garden fuels her happiness and ability to cope with what she is going
Alexia Redondo p3“Control: To direct the behavior of; to have power over; to direct the actions or function of;” (merriam-webster). The overview of the society in the novel Anthem is, the people of the society believe in equality, the opposite of individuality, and a Dystopian society which is the “perfect” society, but one citizen named equality 7-2521 does not believe in a “perfect” society. The process behind creating a collective society in Anthem requires control over education, family, and knowledge. Education is a huge roll in every person's everyday life, but in the novel Anthem the society doesn't not agree. In the novel Anthem there are a plethora amount of occupations the society controls over a individual, such as education.
The novel “Anthem” by Ayn Rand was a short heartwarming story that was set in the future presumably after World War 3. In Anthem the society uses Collectivism; they live in groups and put the group above individuals. These people live similar to an ant colony their only purpose for existence is for the overall good of the whole. With this being said, people are not to see themselves as anything more than part of the group. They do not know the word “I”, and they aren’t allowed to be their own person.
One example of Equality 7-2521 finding his individuality is when he thinks about his future job in the collective society. He records these thoughts in his journal saying, “[s]o we wished to be sent to the Home of the Scholars” (Rand 24). In a collective society, people are not allowed to have their own preferences because they are part of a group, but Equality 7-2521’s preference of becoming a scholar shows how he is starting to see himself as an individual. Therefore, Equality 7-2521’s thoughts on committing a sin are correct because he is an individual with his own opinion. Another example is when Equality 7-2521, still standing on the summit of the mountain in the Uncharted Forest, adds to his monologue by writing, “[m]y happiness is... its own purpose...
Willy, from A Death of Salesman, Jesse, from Sway, and Mr. Keating, from Dead Poets Society show that passion for a person or issue is the only successful way to lead a group of followers. Leadership begins with passion and vision. Leaders are not able to leader groups of people if they are not passionate about a change in the world. Whether it be Mr. Keating’s passion for literature or Jessie’s love for Bridget, leaders must find the why behind their cause. Willy Loman could never find the passion which led to his unsuccessful attempts to being a leader.
In contrast, George and Hazel in the short story cannot even identify the obstacle that they are facing with their lives. This is evident when Hazel suggests George take his bad down, he refuses by saying that when “[people] get away with it, and pretty soon [they’d be right back to the dark ages again,” and Hazel agreed. Sadly, they are so passionate about “equality”, that they are blind about that fact that they are suffering. In conclusion, both “”Warren Pryor” and “Harrison Bergeron” illustrate the danger of overly controlling humanity. Both texts discuss the barrier of stifling humanity, however, in the poem the narrator decides to suffer under his parents’ expectation, where in the short story the speakers are blind about the barrier that they are
Author Alan Keightley once said, “Once in awhile it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they’ve been told” (“Once”). This quotes illustrates that if people have enough courage, they can change their views on society even if it was contrary to popular belief. The book, The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, is a historical fiction novel set in the 1800s. This story has an array of characters that come from various backgrounds and who rebel against society in their own ways. On one hand, we have the white characters who have many luxuries in life and who are very unlikely to rebel against their strict beliefs.
Eric knew that he was in charge but he liked it that way. however it affected all of the characters in many different ways, for example, Christine daae was the sweet, innocent girl who the beast wanted to love.

The terms mental stability and psychotic only cut the surface of the characters in William Faulkner’s and Edgar Allen Poe’s short stories. The human mind is a powerful force; not seen by the naked eye that drives people to greatness or their worst downfalls. In tragedy, the mind can transport a person to an alternate reality that they have no control over. Emily, Faulkner’s main character in “A Rose for Emily” is no exception. The townspeople describe the Grierson family as people who live above their means.
On page 313 Valentine talks to Ender about controlling their own life: “’Welcome to human race. Nobody controls his own life, Ender’”. That is the evidence that even the people in the book have noticed that they can’t control their own life. The fact that it even speaks about the topic in the book, is evidence that the author thought about whether the characters should control they’re life or to what extent. The commanders also talk about controlling one’s life, mostly in the bolded text in the beginning of each chapter.
It stands to reason that in 1984, George Orwell employs both the glass paperweight and Winston’s diary to develop Winston’s desire for the past and his personal rebellion against the Party. The glass paperweight, as a remnant of the past, reflects Winston’s attempt to reconnect with the past and his hope to rebel the government. When Winston first sees the paperweight in Mr.Charrington’s shop, he is fascinated because “The thing was doubly attractive because of its apparent uselessness, though he could guess that it must once have been intended as paperweight”(Orwell 95). According to the Party, there is no such thing as beautiful as the paperweight in the current society, which is because the beauty and uselessness of the paperweight go against

Lastly, Ayn Rand shows opposition to collectivism is with inventions, for example “what is not done collectively cannot be good” (Rand 73). Equality worked on the box alone and because his brothers do not agree with him that they don’t like the new invention. Only those assigned to the home of the scholars are allowed to make inventions. Ayn Rand dramatizes the horror of collectivism by showing how it’s a sin to have your own thoughts and
