- Das Kapital By Karl Marx 1818 1883 - 1,554 words
Das Kapital by Karl Marx (1818 - 1883) Das Kapital by Karl Marx (1818 - 1883) Commentary In the mid-nineteenth century, when Karl Marx wrote Das Kapital - an exhaustive work of more than one thousand pages - factory conditions were often intolerable, wages were at best barely adequate, and there were few groups or governments who advocated reform. Therefore, Marx took it upon himself to define "Capitalism,,, explain and condemn Capitalist methods, predict the inevitable doom of the system, and issue the rallying cry, "Workers of the world, unite!"

- Dubliners By James Joyce - 1,479 words
Dubliners By James Joyce James Joyce's Dubliners was written in 1914 right at the onset of World War I breaking out in Europe.

Because of actions like this they are very carefree about h ...
