Paris appears to be more "under the heel" than London. In Paris the wealthy were separated from the poor and did not care about them at all. A wine cask was broken and the poor people stopped in the street to have a brief celebration while they were drinking up the wine. Gaspard takes some of the wine and writes on the side of the building "blood" which is foreshadowing the French Revolution. It was said that terror...bl ...

  • Jack London - 1,059 words
    Jack London One is led to believe that if a person is an author, then that person would have the best education that is available to them. However, this is not the case for Jack London.

He then returned and finished high school at the age of nineteen to continue onto the University of California at Berkeley, only to quit after one semester.

  • London Trafic - 1,052 words
    London Trafic Dante's The Hermaphroditic Joyce One of the most powerful nuances of any writing is the dialogue within the story. In literature, it is all too often that characters live only in the jaded voice of the author and never truly develop as their own, or are not strongly opinionated in a manner which contrasts the opinions of the writer. It is also unfortunately true that the women depicted in most male-authored literature do not often sound realistic, or how most women one would speak to in the course of the day tend to sound. All too often, women are depicted on a lower level of speech than men. For instance, Dickens and Arthur Miller both apparently subscribed to this notion, as ...

They are not murderers, they are men. And their stories will be better still when they are excellent men; not merely brilliant and admirable, but also, in portions of themselves which we infer rather than see.

Like Winston, I believe George Orwell wrote 1984 in order to allow a communist country to be revealed, the Soviet Union. Orwells goal was to expose the falsehoods of the Soviet Union as the model of a socialist state. He also wanted to reveal the dangers of totalitarianism, the deterioration of objective truth, and the well thought-out manipulation of Oceanias common peoples through propaganda.
