When people read a work of literature many expect it to be a literary masterpiece. What makes a work of literature great is not through the approval of society, but by the author pushing his point out to the audience without regarding the disapproval from society he might receive. Although it is a controversial topic of whether Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn needs republishing due to the use of the word “nigger”, the novel teaches many lessons and reveals many truths that the world should know. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should not have been republished because, simply put, it is not a racist novel.
In Maus, Spiegelman states “I still want to write a book on you about your life in Poland and the war” (12). Spiegelman’s father replies with, “It would take many books, my life, and no one wants anyway to hear such stories” (12). In conclusion, the author’s purpose is more the same than different and these books today help people understand what Spiegelman and Wiesel when
Our society today just does not read the books. They do not see the meaning behind them. Everyone wants the bigger and the better, they don’t have time to comprehend a 400-page novel. They want to read what other people have to gossip about on social media. They want to read about people’s lives on their smartphone, not on a piece of paper from some book.
Remembering our past oversights was necessary in order to avoid repeating past mistakes over and over again. This saying originated from George Santayana’s famous quotable quotes, “Those who fail to heed the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them in the future.” Based on my own personal experience, I failed to listen with my father’s advice that education should have been my top priority when I was young. Then, he gave me the same old lectures when I was much older and was laid off from work multiple times. My father also provided me several warnings that technology will eventually take over my profession in the Travel Industry.
I lie just about everyday that I don’t have homework when I actually do. My parents don’t find out because I somehow manage to get the homework done. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, two families have an ancient, ongoing feud. One night at a party, two young lovers fall in love not knowing they were sworn enemies. Because of their love, Romeo wouldn’t fight Juliet’s cousin Tybalt.
Huxley views on human nature are more real and evident in today’s society. For example, in terms of history, Huxley knew not a lot of people read books. So he never feared the ban of books that held history like Orwell, but he did fear that the interest in books would never grow in society. Orwell just like in his novel worried about the government more than the actual people. Huxley knew that changes starts with the people and wrote his satire for the people to bring change.
In the very first paragraph Rao mentions a the conversations she had with two different people, the first person say “I never read fiction” and “After what 's the point of a book if it doesn 't teach you anything.” Another person says “Fiction is not real, no?” and adds “I only like to read real stories to improve myself.” She states that many young people don 't see the benefit in read unless its to help improve themselves, or to ace a job interview. According to Rao the “modern attitude
I want to get the most out of my education and use it to my advantage. I do not only want to be a liberal learner because of the success I would have in class, but also because of the success that it would lead me to outside of school in the real world. From this class I know what it takes to get to where I want to be and I am going to work hard to develop the right characteristics I talked about earlier. There is one saying from a reading we talked about in class that I want to apply in my life starting now. Richard Rodriguez wrote about a poster he saw that said, “Open the doors of your mind with books (Rodriguez 103).”
Actually, if I’m being honest, my family sucks at writing. I was never placed in any special writing classes, but only the standard classes for school. I joined Intermediate composition to excel in my writing for my future. From this class, I’ve broadened my vocabulary and found new ways to check my pieces that I have wrote. I could always use more work with grammar because I have always struggled with that concept.
In other words we also could say that because of fight inside of byzantine empire they wasn't able to survive from other attacks. In response to this argument I would like to argue back still it is worth because there isn't any history source we can’t learn. Which means that we could at least learn that we shouldn't fight inside because normally country falls because of split from inside. In conclusion, Byzantine empire should be studied by Schools because it is worth to study.
Did the Holocaust really happen? How are the Nazi’s let alone anyone else capable of this amount of this amount of trouble? A lot of people don 't think that the holocaust even really happened, personally I believe that it did. There are many different reasons on why the holocaust supposedly never happened but the most consistent, well believed one is that no human being is capable of causing this much torture and pain onto another person. You have probably learnt about The Holocaust from either books or in your history classes in school, but what they probably didn 't tell you that some people believe that The Holocaust never even happen.

Plus, Proctor’s third son is not baptized because Proctor will not “let Mr. Parris lay a hand upon my (Proctor’s) baby.” Proctor doesn’t see Parris as an honorable leader of the church, but that is clouding his participation in a religious practice, baptism. The final reason why Proctor’s religious knowledge and participation are clouded is because he believes Reverend Parris is greed because Parris was “the first minister ever did demand the deed to his house,” and he “preached nothing but golden candlesticks until he had them.” Once again, one who is Puritan needs to have faith in their religious leader, but Proctor can’t. As a result, he isn’t a devout
As it says in the front of Fahrenheit 451 before it even begins, “If they give you ruled paper, write the other way,” Montag does not care about breaking the rules anymore (1). As Beatty told Montag, when nobody read books anymore because of technology, they eventually started getting rid of books all together. The government wanted everyone to be equal, and they did not want anyone being smarter than anyone else by reading books. Montag decides he wants to get out the books he has been hiding in his ventilator grille. Montag begins to learn: “I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness” (King James Bible, Ecc. 7.25).
Then the directors of the school destroy his work of art because it was not kid friendly, even though they were the ones to put it into the school curriculum. I think the school’s solution to the problem was not good. Like what it says in paragraph 3 in I am real where it says, “I want you to know, too, that my publisher and I have done absolutely nothing to exploit the disgusting news from Drake.” Even when the school burned the book he said that he did not exploit them like he mentions in this quote. I think he knew his book was not for children, but what I think he really is mad about is his reputation.
