Communism - "Every line I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism," reads the preface to George Orwell’s satire, Animal Farm. The rest of that line, which reads "And for Democratic Socialism as I understand it," was omitted from the 1956 edition of the book. Orwell has been called a traitor to the socialists, while at the same time becoming a sort of hero to the right wing. Animal Farm is not only a parody of Stalinist Russia, it also demonstrates that Russia wasn’t truly a Social Democracy....   [tags: essays research papers] 528 words

Comparing Beloved and Night - Comparing Beloved and Night     The two novels I am writing about are "Night" by Elie Wiesel and "Beloved," by Toni Morrison.  Beloved tells about slavery and an ex-slave mother's struggle with a past which is projected as the haunting of her people.  It tells the story of Sethe, a mother compelled to kill her child, rather than let the child live a life of slavery.  Toni Morrison uses ghosts and the supernatural to create an enhanced acceptance of the human condition and the struggled survival of the Black American.            The novel is set in Ohio in the 1880's.  The Civil War had been won, slavery had been abolished, however, the memories of slavery still remain.  Although the story itself is fictional, the novel is based on  real events.   The events are based on the trial in Cincinnati of Margaret Garner, who with her husband, and seventeen other slaves (Kentuckian) crossed the Ohio where they supposedly found safe shelter.           When it was discovered that they had been pursued and surrounded, and her husband overpowered, Margaret knew that any hope of freedom was  in vain.  She refused to see her children taken back into slavery.  Without delay, Margaret quickly took hold of a butcher's knife which was laid on a table and cut the throat of her young daughter.  She then attempted to kill her other children as well, then herself, but she was overpowered and held back before she could follow through.  She was arrested and put on trial on the grounds that the child she killed was the legal property of the owner.             In Beloved, when a new proprietor takes over Sweet Home (the slave farm), Sethe, escapes the brutal beatings she now endures in an attempt to go from Kentucky to Ohio.  When the previous owner of Sweet home, Mr....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 2450 words
