The book is a great tool used to open up hard racial conversations. Its historical accuracy makes it even more of a necessary read. Twain wrote Huck Finn to inform about racial issues through the eyes of an innocent child. Although the novel may use derogatory terms over and over again that is more of a reason as to why it should be read. Racism in America was pervasive during the time of the novel.

In addition, Capote grabs the attention of the readers by effectively using diction and details to help engage more readers to the text. Capote utilizes diction to give a new image towards Dick and Perry, the two characters playing the criminal role.

The Great Gatsby has been known to be one of the great American literature works written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. However, some discussion has been raised regarding its title and the debate on whether the Great Gatsby is in fact great. At times, the novel even seems to be quite vacant, shallow and morally complacent. Research shows that most people like the novel based on the notion created over time that it often appeals to a younger audience and their idea of the American dream. However, despite having a strong attachment to the book, readers’ opinions often change by the time they come to the end of it.

The viewer can find many messages, direct and indirect. There is the idea of many Americans disapproving of war, and at the same time the contradiction in being against war and still boasting about American glories.

The song was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The song barely made it into the British top 20 and the Beatles fame didn 't truly kick in until “Please Please Me” which hit number one on the British charts in the early 1963 and stayed number one for a total of 30 weeks. After the Beatles appearance on the Ed Sullivan show in February 1964 Beatlemania began which was a period of time when people all over america were crazy over the Beatles. The appearance on the Ed sullivan show created their fame in America and after that the Beatles consistently put out hit songs that always topped the music charts included 2 hit albums and many single hit songs. By this time the Beatles had achieve many awards and were extremely well known.
To sum up my thoughts, Steinbeck based his fictional novel on the historical events that were occurring around him. This why the first, edition of the Grapes of Wrath sold 50,000 printed copies and it became the bestselling novel in America in 1939. As a result, by February 1940 the novel was already in its eleventh printing, and had 428,900 copies that were sold. Assuredly, this was all too due to the fact the people saw the inside of the Dust Bowl Migration and the Dust Bowl from a third person omniscient.
Many critics loved this book and some believed that he was not the author. New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, are all well-known newspapers that wrote wonderful reviews on Satchmo. Personally I did not enjoy the book because of the writing style and the tendency for the story to jump all over the place. I think Armstrong should have focused on the creating a better timeline of events and following that. I still would recommend this book to my friends who are from New Orleans and who are music lovers.
I adore the characters in the book it’s a very enjoyable book. The mystery in this book is very admiring because there are very different elements that can make it a great book. The fact that Justice Lawrence Wargrave ended up being the killer came to a surprise to me. Usually I am not one for reading but I highly enjoyed this book because the characters all had different personalities that helped support the book being such a great read. My favorite character had to have been Vera Clawthone because mostly she was the protagonist and that means that she was the main character in the story although I also liked philip lombard too.
Literature has been measured a driving force for societal change, particularly in a nation like America where literature has been acting upon our actions since our independence, correcting mistakes and provoking thought among our readers.

Critics often have numerous views of what constitutes good writing or not, but there are few pieces that set the standard. In “Good Readers and Good Writers”; Vladimir Nabokov suggests the use of rhetoric to give the novel body and character to discern it from other novels. In
