1984 Writing Assignment

Writing

Orwell's 1984 depicted a totalitarian government of Oceania that controlled the masses and manipulated them into becoming docile vassals of the State. Today's world is not much different from the world imagined by Orwell. This paper will provide three examples of the ways in which the present U.S. government resembles the government of Oceania in 1984.

One major governmental policy of Oceania that can be found in the U.S. today is the policy of engaging in perpetual war. Oceania would conduct "Hate Week" in which it cultivated hatred for the "enemy" among the populace (Orwell, n.d., p. 3), and it would constantly talk up the concept of War is Peace. Today, we have the War on Terror, which is supposed to make the world safer, but so far more acts of terrorism are happening and the Ministry of Peace of Oceania is perfectly reflected in Washington's Defense Department and various other military agencies that wage perpetual war around the globe, whether in the Cold War or in today's War on Terror (Blakinger, 2016). The U.S. has implemented its own version of the Ministry of Peace that is dedicated to waging war on an "elusive" enemy.

Another policy is the constant surveillance of Big Brother. In the U.S. today, surveillance is big business. The NSA has been shown to be keeping tabs on citizens and foreigner dignitaries, thanks to leaks by Snowden (BBC News, 2014). Spying on people and making sure no one is doing anything the government does not like has become a top priority of the U.S. since 9/11. The Patriot Act has helped the government to implement this surveillance policy. As a result, the country's government looks a lot like Big Brother today, watching everyone all the time.

Oceania's Ministry of Truth is a third aspect…… [read more]


Analyzing Essay Question the Pearl Essay

Essay  |  2 pages (805 words)
Bibliography Sources: 1+

SAMPLE TEXT:

Pearl' by John Steinbeck, family assumes a truly vital part. The dependability of Kino's family is called into perspective all through the work. The title "The Pearl" is based on the interplay of the Kino's family in the novel and it suggests the theme of the story. In the novel, the family is underprivileged and their living circumstances are difficult. Kino and Juana, desire to provide education to their child in spite of the conditions (Writer Thoughts). There is a particular quote that summarizes it completely. The resolve is aptly summarized with Kino's prediction, "My son will read and open the books, and my son will write and will know writing" (Steinbeck, 2000). And my son will make numbers, and these things will make us free because he will know -- he will know and through him we will know. . . . This is what the pearl will do." All through the novel decision making of Kino's family is based on their familial loyalty. They support Kino in all his endeavors unconditionally. They are united with each other to some extent regarding Kino's development and growth. In present era Kino's family would presumably be called facilitators to some extent. Given the unstinted support of his family, Kino's dangerous interest is permitted to happen with respect to material riches and wealth, for example, the pearl itself. For instance, take Juana, Kino's wife. She looks the possible obscurity in Kino that the pearl introduces and knows the devastation that could happen. However, Kino substantially denied the possibility of a damaging outcome to her. She complies with that conviction and stays quiet. This shows symbolism of the accommodating wife. Despite the fact that Juana, later, believes quietly that Kino's activities will prompt their ruin she keeps her own counsel. At that point, there appears the characters of Juan Tomas, Kino's sibling and his wife Apolonia, in the narrative (Writer Thoughts). As opposed to the Juana, they bolster Kino's decisions with no inquiry. Actually it is Juan himself who goes with Kino to the town to offer the pearl. Again the misplaced conviction emboldens Kino to proceed on his damaging journey. Time comes when the family hut is destroyed by fire and Apolonia's quiet personality and composed dispensation assures guarantee of their survival, Tomas manages to get supplies required for getaway from his industry.

I have two genuine considerations regarding protection of Kino having committed…… [read more]

Analysis of the Novel The Chrysanthemum Research Paper

Research Paper  |  4 pages (1,332 words)
Bibliography Sources: 4

SAMPLE TEXT:

Chrysanthemums" was published for the first time in 1973 October by the Harper's issue. It was subsequently included in the collection of short stories, The Long Valley, by John Steinbeck in 1938. In many ways, the story of an unhappy marriage is a characteristic of the stories by Steinbeck. "The Chrysanthemums" occurs in the Salinas Valley, California, dubbed "The Long Valley." Steinbeck uses this title in the first collection of short stories. The story is about a married couple and an observation of the unhappiness psychology the marriage engenders. The story also presents the vibrant and enthralling imagery of the plants, seasons, weather, and animals, which appear to captivate and influence the writer throughout his life (Gale Cengage, 2002)

Themes

Opportunities and limitations

One of the most discussed subjects in 'The Chrysanthemums' is the limitations of a married woman. The issue of restrictions of a married woman comes up early in the story- through the depiction of the gray fog that hovered over the valley locking away the Salinas Valley from the world and from the sky. The fog appeared like a lid of a pot on top of the mountain closing it. Elisa lived within "the closed pot" under even greater confines.

The red geraniums that enclose the house of Henry and Elisa are as tall as the windows themselves. A wired fence that runs around the flower garden encloses it further. From the thus confines, of the homestead, Elisa can only see men coming in and leaving in their Ford motors from cattle trade; the fiddle drawn by the burro and Henry and his assistant Scotty riding their horses (Gale Cengage, 2002).

Elisa seems comfortable as she appears unmoved even as the men go about their chores. Elisa has fair knowledge of the roads around the valley; quite plausibly, she does not always remain confined to her house, as once in a while she gives the men advice on their way around. She knows that the road to the ranch is dusty and hence the river is filled up in sand. She advices the men to move back for the Salinas road and take the highway from that point; not that she is known to drive the family roadster. She, possibly, chooses to stay back or even that she has no place to go. At the point the tinker explains his expedition from and to Seatle and San Diego explaining how the travel takes away most of his time given his inclination to follow good weather, Elisa says that she has a liking for that kind of life.

After talking with the tinker, she gives him the chrysanthemum cuttings and seeks more about his life. She is curious whether he sleeps in the wagon and expresses her liking for that kind of life. She even wishes that women were able to do the things the tinker does. The man replies that women are not capable of such rough conditions, but even imagining it gives Elisa strength and courage.… [read more]


Response to Darder Reading Article Review

Article Review  |  2 pages (788 words)
Bibliography Sources: 1

SAMPLE TEXT:

Darder's critique of traditional pedagogical practices centers on the claim that there exist "power relations in classrooms that ultimately result in the subordination of bicultural students" (25). By the end of the paragraph in which she makes this claim, "bicultural students" have suddenly been redefined as "students of color" (25). When she returns to the subject of "pedagogical issues related to dominant and subordinate cultures in terms of the relations of power" it is to define the "dominant culture" in terms of the "ideologies, social practices, and structures that affirm the central values, interests, and concerns of those who are in control of the material and symbolic wealth in society" while the "subordinate culture refers to groups who exist in social and material subordination to the dominant culture" (30). By this definition, of course, women would qualify as a "subordinate culture," since making 70 cents to every dollar that men make for the same work is pretty much the definition of "social and material subordination" -- although Darder's outright equation of "bicultural students" with "students of color" (rather than "female students") in the opening paragraph makes it clear that she is less concerned with gender than with race or ethnicity; her concern for "bicultural students" is not predominantly imagining women operating in a male-dominated world as the definition of "bicultural." Darder eventually claims that "ideology can serve as a pedagogical tool of investigation rather than an instrument of domination" (32). In reacting to Darder's critique, it might be useful to inquire into her own ideology as expressed here is not potentially just as exclusionary as the ideology of the dominant culture: in an America where a man of color has been elected President twice but no woman has, it may be the case that Darder's emphasis on race or ethnicity as the basis on which "subordination" occurs is just another way of telling women that their concerns have to wait until more pressing and important concerns have first been addressed (which is, of course, a familiar method by which the subordination of women is accomplished by male hegemony). If nothing else, the "traditional pedagogical practices" that Darder wishes to critique have affected women as a class just as clearly as they have affected subaltern racial and ethnic groups, so it is unclear what the value of Darder's special emphasis on race and ethnicity is…… [read more]


Romans 1 8 And the Teachings of Paul Essay

Essay  |  3 pages (1,015 words)
Bibliography Sources: 0

SAMPLE TEXT:

¶ … Romans, Paul outlines some of the basic tenets of the Christian faith. Romans 1-8 specifically addresses issues related to the natural world, human identity, human relationships, Christian culture, and Christian worldview. Paul also addresses his audience knowing that he longs to preach the gospel in Europe, as he longs to spread Christ's message and create a new global community built on faith and bound by that same faith. Some of the core aspects of Paul's teachings include the fact that Christ's law supersedes that of the laws of the Old Testament, replacing the old laws with a new covenant. In this critical passage, Paul shows that faith alone is sufficient for salvation, and that only faith in Christ can pave the pathway towards heaven and salvation. Romans 1-8 lays the foundation for Christian morality, identity, and worldview.

Christ provides a new vision of the natural world, one in which the order of the universe has been clearly established. The natural world without Christ is full of sin, but Christ has the potential to liberate the believer from that sinful world. "But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance," (Romans 6:17). Paul also points out that living in the mundane world and neglecting Christ will most certainly lead to death without the possibility of salvation; whereas belief in Christ will bestow eternal life as per Christ's teachings. Paul therefore concludes this passage of Romans, "if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live," (Romans 8:13).

Human identity had previously been enslaved by sin and false beliefs, but through Christ, humans can be freed from those shackles to assume a new identity in Christ. Believers must die to their old selves and be reborn with a Christian identity and Christian point-of-view. A Christian point-of-view begins with understanding how and why Christ died and was reborn to help lead us from sin. "For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin because anyone who has died has been set free from sin," (Romans 6:6-7). Reborn in Christ, the human being can assume the new identity that is built on faith in God and a willingness to preach the gospel as Paul does.

Within the Christian worldview, human relationships are bound by Christ and must be free from sin. In Chapter 8 of Romans, Paul repeatedly emphasizes the temptations of the flesh and why they must be resisted if Christ is to enter into our hearts. Christian relationships cannot be based on sex alone, for "Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance… [read more]


Book Review Non Fiction Chapter Summary Book Review

Book Review  |  4 pages (1,186 words)
Bibliography Sources: 0

SAMPLE TEXT:

¶ … Lady and Think like a Man is a book published by the well-known Steve Harvey. A non-fiction work helps women learn what mean truly think about relationships, commitment, intimacy, and love. The book has received a NAACP Image Award for Amazing Literary Work in the Instructional subcategory and has fueled many women's thoughts in regards to what men really think about love. It was originally published in late January of 2009 and will be reviewed in this essay. A brief chapter summary of chapters 12-15 will also be provided.

The book is very easy to follow and feels highly relatable. It feels like the author is talking to you in person. This can be seen from the various titles of each chapter. They are more like phrases than titles and offer easy to identify guidance for anyone looking for assistance in regards to dating. There are some hang ups and some "archaic" offerings like in chapter 13 where Harvey suggest women stop being "women" in order to have someone because men prefer "ladies." This is not the case at all in modern society and just fuels that stereotype that woman must act helpless or less than in order to be attractive in front of a man. Aside from that, the chapters provide easy access to the mind of a man who is not only sincere in his approach, but also honest.

So many men that write about dating come from a clinical or research perspective. However, Harvey provides actual information from his own experiences as a heterosexual man in order to form his opinion on the big issue of dating and finding someone. The chapters sometimes are a bit short, but some of them, like chapter 8, "Why Men Cheat," can be very helpful when it comes to identifying certain patterns of behavior that men exhibit when cheating. It was also useful to see what it took a man to go and cheat. One of the first reasons was, because he can. He explains men cheat because sex to them is different and can be entirely physical. Things like this are important to identify from a genuine source because it gives readers a better idea of why men may do some of the things they do.

Women sometimes go into a relationship with a heterosexual man blindly and it is nice to have a man give you tips to encourage growth and connection in a relationship. For example, on page 72, Harvey explains what men identify as a "Keeper." Worth keeping to a man is someone that never gives in easily, has good standards that begin the moment one opens their mouth, and she commands respect versus demands it. This is something that most women are not aware of and often fall into pitfalls when it comes to their relationships with men. Harvey explains that women need to find worth in themselves and set appropriate boundaries in order to find a man that is worthwhile. Without the clue… [read more]


Faith and Hope in the Poetry of Stephen Crane and Louise Gluck Essay

SAMPLE TEXT:

Stephen Crane vs. Louise Gluck

Do you think they have the same feelings about the relationship between humans and nature? Be specific in your references to the poems.

While both the poets Stephen Crane and Louise Gluck frequently make use of natural metaphors in their poetry, they do so in very different ways. For Crane, the universe is a cold and impersonal place while for Gluck nature holds a potent metaphorical significance and yields the ability for individuals to find hope even in depressing circumstances. One of the most memorable images found in Crane's poem is that of the horizon. The horizon gives the promise that the quest of someone to reach it is near but it is an optical illusion. In his "Four Poems," when the poet tells someone that he cannot run and catch the horizon, the runner merely responds "You lie," and runs on.

In poems like "Snowdrops," however, Gluck instead uses the ability of the earth to renew itself seasonally with her own ability to renew itself: "in damp earth my body / able to respond again." Although human beings experience despair, as illustrated in Crane's poems, this is not necessarily a permanent state of affairs, like the elusive horizon. Gluck also demonstrates in poems such as "Twilight" the ability of nature to provide peace for individuals. "Visual world, language / rustling of leaves in the night, / smell of high grass, of woodsmoke. / I let it go, then I light the candle." Nature enables people to abandon their obsessions and cares and to see themselves in a larger and more meaningful context.

For Crane, however, nature merely exists to reaffirm the poet's negative view of the world. Rather than the beautiful rustling of high grass, Crane instead envisions a scenario in which blades of grass are speaking, animate, and judged by God. In his vision, a little blade of grass says to God, "Memory is bitter to me / For if I did good deeds/I know not of them," in contrast to the other blades of grass who brag about their accomplishments. The story of the grass is clearly less about nature and more about using nature as a metaphor for human existence. For Crane, nature is something used to underline the poet's beliefs about the natural world, not to illustrate something meaningful about nature itself.

In some ways, this contrast between the two poets' attitudes could be said to illustrate a stereotypically male versus a stereotypically female view of the world. For Crane, nature is something which is used to illustrate something profound about human experience, little else. Gluck seems more interested in simply observing nature for nature's sake and viewing human beings as a part of nature.

¶ … Manager Meets the Monkey

The One-Minute Manager Meets the Monkey: Book Report

The title of this work on rather formal subject of management is very catchy and makes one curious. Ken Blanchard (also co-author of the One Minute Manager), William Oncken and Hal Burrows have penned the "One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey." The monkey of one person jumps off his shoulder onto the other's (whose help is sought), when the former goes to the latter with a problem and the latter gets concerned about it. This chain continues; monkeys jumping from one person to another can be quite a nuisance for that one person who has to take responsibility of else's monkeys. This book can help people avoid falling into such situations (of carrying others' monkeys), and implement the life-changing lessons that we learn from here, and concentrate on resolving one's own problems.

The story makes its opening with a pestered monkey caretaker, who, despite all the unrequited efforts, gains no such advantage from it. He spends quite some time feeding and caring for everyone's monkeys until one day he reads about monkey management and learns how to return the "monkeys" to the original owners. He became more effective at organizing and managing and noticed dramatic changes in his performance and this opened roads for progressing his career.

Instead of addressing the main issue when we get caught up in an inconsequential problem-for instance lack of time to carry out the required planning, coordination and other managerial and organizational tasks- we tend to waste time and effort in trying to cover up for the damages we have done; when primarily we should try to pin-point the causes of the problem, to strike at the roots of the problem. If we do not do that, the problem keeps worsening until the situation has gotten out of our hands and our resources have depleted. As an Illustration, when we catch fever…… [read more]


Death of a Salesman Biff and Happy Essay

Bibliography Sources: 0

SAMPLE TEXT:

¶ … Biff and Happy

When Biff was the high school football star, his younger brother Happy idolized him and wanted to grow up to be just like his brother. However, although Happy still dreams about 'making it' with girls and making money, Biff has clearly moved on and become more introverted. When Happy sees Biff again after many years the first thing he says is: "I think I got less bashful and you got more so ... Where's the old humor, the old confidence?" (Miller 12). Happy has in many ways grown up to be like Biff's high school self.

Happy also seems to resemble Willy, the boys' father, far more than Biff does now. Happy is not very self-reflective and he is proud of his dishonesty on a personal level with the women he is dating and also at work. This recalls Willy's pride in being a salesman who is well-liked, versus someone who does hands-on, meaningful work. However, even Happy is not content in his job: "All I can do now is wait for the merchandise manager to die ...Sometimes I sit in my apartment -- all alone. And I think of the rent I'm paying. And it's crazy. But then, it's what I always wanted. My own apartment, a car, and plenty of women" (Miller 13).

In contrast, Biff refuses to work a conventional desk job and instead has taken a variety of manual labor jobs which he enjoys but which have very little social cache. "What the hell am I doing, playing around with horses, twenty-eight dollars a week," he says, even though he hated working office jobs when he would rather be "outdoors," with his shirt off (Miller 13). Biff is at least honest about what he wants, even though he is considered a failure by society. Happy, on the other hand, is considered more successful but is very shallow. He is also petty and jealous and thinks he is too good for the work he is currently doing: "See, Biff, everybody around me…… [read more]

Comparison and Contrast of Two Short Stories Essay

Essay  |  3 pages (934 words)
Bibliography Sources: 1

SAMPLE TEXT:

¶ … Punishment" by Rabindranath Tagore and "Chike's School Days" by Chinua Achebe are two short stories that are quite fascinating and appealing. These are two stories that are set in the past period, a time when the cultures of the nations prevailed. The underlying theme of these two short stories exemplifies the aspect of ancient customs and practices. The main argument made in this essay is that the short stories both indicate the lives of the characters in different cultures and the influence that it has on them. More so, the influence that culture and customs have in the manner that the caste system in the society have an impact on the lives of people.

One of the similarities that can be perceived in Punishment and Chike's School Days is the caste systems that are presented in the short stories. Both novels are indicative of the different social classes within the community. In the latter, Achebe places emphasis on the Osucaste system. In particular, the short story portrays the negative outcomes of the customary system and people of the infiltration of new, peculiar cultural norms. For instance, owing to the new religion in the society, that is Christianity, Amos is heartened to marry an Osu lady. It is important to note that in the story, an individual from the Osuclan was a slave and was not permitted to raise the head while in-front of the others. More so, he or she was to be despised and looked down upon. An Osu was not permitted to marry a free-born and after their death, they were buried in the bush. However, the instigation of Christianity does away with these aspects and even allows inter-marriage between an Osu and individuals from the free-born. This is the manner in which Chike's father ended up marrying Sarah, who was an Osu (Ossie, 1988).

Similarly, Togore discusses the Indian caste system. In this case, when one was born into a certain class, then he or she had no other option, but to stay in such a class for the rest of their lives. In this piece of literature, Togore signifies the dehumanization of women and relates subjects of inconspicuousness and expendability to make evident how society desensitizes women. This aspect is prevalent in the whole story. In essence, the story concerns a young innocent woman who faces trial with the society and also justice system being against her. In addition, the author shows the dehumanization as the only female in the story, who is Radha is killed. In the story, Radha is considered to be only beneficial for sex, food and bearing children (Togore, 2013).

However, there is a dissimilarity between the two short stories. On one hand, Punishment depicts a culture that is morally rot and does not have any change…… [read more]

1984 Writing Assignment

JRSM 301 DLF

Writing

Winston's mental faculties begin to descend into an abyss as the stress of working in the Party yet secretly plotting against it begins to fray his nerves. The tension mounts and his physical weakness adds to the psychological collapse. However, Winston's search for truth is rewarded at last through a meeting with O'Brien and the reception of a book by Goldstein. This, coupled with his time with Julia and a kind of relaxed holiday among the proles (nature) gives him a boost of confidence that he is on the right track. This paper will describe these catalysts and conclude with what I have learned thus far from my reading of 1984.

What might have caused Winston's mental deterioration is his meeting with O'Brien, his confession of treason against the Party, and his own frail nerves being overworked (90 hours of work for the Party in 5 days) (Orwell 227). In other words, he is under a great deal of stress and tension. That stress is having a real effect on his psyche, and even though he wants to fight against the Party, he is not in any psychological or physical position to take such a bold step at this moment. He is mainly acting on emotion and limited rational foresight -- it is like an act of desperation, like jumping off a cliff to save one's life, and mentally speaking he pays the price.

What brings Winston back to reality is the arrival of the book by Goldstein that explains the theory and practice of the Party. It puts into words everything that Winston has already thought but been unable to enunciate. He is compelled by this book, feels it is very important and that both he and Julia should read it. He reads…… [read more]


How Julia Changes Winston in 1984 Essay

SAMPLE TEXT:

1984 Writing Assignment

JRSM 301 DLF

Writing

The physical relationship of Julia and Winston consists of several components that influence the two and begins to change them to some extent. For instance, their liaison is private -- secret from the world and Big Brother, which impacts Winston's character (it is like he is let off the chain for the first time in his life). The affair is illicit, i.e., not sanctioned by Big Brother (which makes them both enemies of the State in a way); and their relationship is natural (which spurs Winston to question the unnatural state of the State and his own relationship with Big Brother). This paper will discuss these three components and show how they begin to change the characters involved.

The fact that their relationship is secret gives them both a great feeling of freedom. Winston, for example, feels as though he can tell the truth for once -- and he does so in a shocking way when he is asked by Julia what he felt when she gave him the note saying, "I LOVE YOU." He responds that he hated her and that he wanted to rape and murder her, which makes her laugh. As they have just made love, the inconsistency of impulse can be explained by Winston's change of heart, from true son of Big Brother to questioning explorer on his own, engaging with himself, nature and others in an honest and open way (Orwell 152).

Another component of the relationship is that it is illicit -- it is not approved by the State, and thus puts them both at odds with their government. Indeed, she likes to break the rules and is attracted to Winston because, as she says, "I knew you were…… [read more]
