One of the similarities between these societies is the banning of books. Back in the 1600’s books were banned in the US due to the content within the pages. Many of the messages in books have been misinterpreted and misjudged causing them to be censored. An interview by the PBS Newshour of newsela writes, “Is there ever a cause for
He wanted to burn the books because in the novel books were prohibited and were send to burn by ﬁreﬁghters. In other words, they were censored. All types of books, poetry, biographies, history books, they were all banned so people were being denied the right of knowledge and information books contained. Also they were burning them because ﬁre would destroy them completly, that why he said that ﬁre was bright and clean, it would leave absolutley no trace of the book that once exsisted. The next quote i'm explaining is: "We are living in a time where ﬂowers try to live on good ﬂowers, instead of growing on good rain and black loam".
Dimmesdale was a devout Puritan, and because of how hard they were on themselves he believed that he can no longer live a life of happiness. His despair was inflicted upon him once he committed adultery with Hester Prynne and decided to keep it secret.“While thus suffering under bodily disease, and gnawed and tortured by some black trouble of the soul…”(Hawthorne 117). The pain came from deep within Dimmesdale, and he believed that one sin can destroy his whole life. Puritanism is now looked upon as one of the hardest religions because of their strictness in their ways of life. They truly believed that if they sinned they would be looked at as if they were scum in the eyes of the church, and this was exactly how Dimmesdale saw himself.

Montag has been stealing books, and Faber has been teaching him about them. He learns that books reveal the bad parts of life, which is why many people hate them and decide not to read. However, Faber teaches Montag that books have quality in them and that people need to sit down once in a while and think. To make people learn more about this, they decide to come up with a plan. It involves putting books into firemen’s homes so that they would get burnt along with all the firehouses.
Reveries’s Rousseau and Frankenstein’s creature are exile because of mankind’s judgement. They share the “wounded walker” trope: an individual forced into exile from mistreatment, and who use their displacement to fuel self-discovery. However, their journeys begin dissimilarly because of their difference in voluntary and forced exile. Rousseau’s exile is motivated by mistreatment from accusations towards his works; his writing was considered destructive towards Catholic and government ideals. Out of protest, his books were burned, and the occupants of towns he attempted to reside in were encouraged to attack him.
With chapters titled “Minotaur” and “Hermaphroditus”, and Cal describing himself as “Homeric” (Eugenides 4) a parallel between Middlesex and ancient stories is drawn. Almost every Greek classic involves some kind of journey or quest that the protagonist undergoes. This coincides with Foster’s argument theme is created by calling upon a “prior story” (Foster 56) because a theme of journeying is made apparent by Eugenides’s references. Without any allusions journeying would still be a prevalent theme, but it would carry significantly less weight. As it turns out, Foster was largely correct in How to Read Literature Like a Professor.

Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
It helps me personally understand why America was such a shameful and arrogant nation. I feel as though they did not want to befriend southern people since this is revolved around Virginia and how they were wrongful treated by others they thought they trusted! This speech was very religious as in Christianity! Frederick kept asking is this really what God would have wanted us to do for he is not the one to establish such slavery and is actually against it. People got offended if you try to tell them I know what you are feeling, like you have ever been starved to death, or whipped like a piece of scrap off the road.
