The Different Use of Silence in The Lottery by Shirley Jackson and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Words • 2083
Pages • 8
Che Guevara, a major influence of the Cuban revolution from 1953 to 1959, once said that "Silence is argument carried out by other means." (Guevara) What could be meant by this quote is that silence can be utilized throughout different ministries by different people. In both Shirley Jackson's short story "The Lottery” and Suzanne Collins's 374 page novel ”The Hunger Games," citizens participate in traditions involving the sacrifice of innocent human life with silence as a common acknowledgment. However, characterization…...

The Hobbit by Tolkien and Fascism
Words • 944
Pages • 4
Firchow’s argument in The Politics of Fantasy: The Hobbit and Fascism, is imbued with hyperbolic assertions and far-fetched ideas. Fichow’s argument is very weak, its fundamental assertion, that of fascist thought in the Hobbit was not demonstrated in the text. Furthermore, after asserting that Tolkien “Warned against any such interpretations”, Fichow refuses to define Fascism and in consequence lost me as reader, as the definition was indispensable to his alleged claims. Nevertheless, the author states “I will in the course…...

A Discussion on the Link Between American Democracy and Race
Words • 1712
Pages • 7
The advent of American democracy did not incite the profound changes that colonial insurgents foretold. Egalitarian assurances, initially purported by revolutionists and eventually inscribed in the Constitution, were never wholly realized. The stratification of American society was solidified, aided by centuries of slavery; at best, equality existed in the comradery of white countrymen. Abraham Lincoln's government, “of the people, by the people, for the people,” could not possibly encompass the millions of African Americans enslaved prior to the Civil War…...

In order for the Imperial country to gain the trust and support of its citizens, making the effects of colonialism appear to be an act of generosity was a necessary precondition. In many colonial discourses, the colonized body is described as savage and unruly. Representations of the colonized, indigenous peoples as female or emasculated served to create a gender binary, one in which the male European Empire must come to the rescue of the damsel in distress. In both Salman…...

The poets of both ‘Vultures’ and ‘What were they Like? ’ present people in a very interesting way. ‘Vultures’ is a poem not just about vultures and the commandant, but rather explores whether there is hope because there is love everywhere, or whether there is despair, because even though love is there, evil is still always present.
