Jews and Society: Social Anti-Semitism - In Hanna Arendt’s “Jews and Society”, she argues that the existence of anti-Semitism in Germany, prior to the rise of Hitler and after the defeat in World War I, was not solely the result of political pressure exerted by the Nazi party and its accomplices; but instead the result of a social construction of what it meant to be Jewish. This social anti-Semitism was present long before Hitler came into power and instituted his radical and merciless ideas about dealing with Jews in Europe. The difference between what Arendt saw as harmless social discrimination and the mass extermination of a cultural group was the involvement of politics in mediating these cultural biases....   [tags: society issues, semitism, jews] 980 words

Anti-Semitism in Paris and London? - George Orwell’s book Down and Out in Paris and London has themes of anti-Semitism hinted in several scenes throughout the story. Though it is not the main theme of this story, one can definitely feel the anti-Semitic ideas that Orwell was trying to throw in the book to give a sense of what times were like in post WWI Europe.

Anti-War Elements in Joseph Heller’s "Catch-22" - Critics often refer to Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 as an anti-war novel. At its core, the novel has a disparaging view of war. The main character, John Yossarian, believes that war is madness. He is astounded that men lay down their lives for vague concepts such as country, patriotism, and honor. However, unlike the typical anti-war novel, Catch-22 doesn’t focus on the most dismal aspects of war; Heller masterfully crafts an effective satirical style of addressing war. Corruption, confusion, and dishonesty run amok in the novel and these principles justify the embodiment of Catch-22 as an anti-war novel....   [tags: Joseph Heller, Catch-22, anti-war, ] 1165 words

The memory of an experience does not always reflect the literal truth of what occurred, rather it will reflect how the experience affected the person who remembers it.

The Anti-Hero - Introduction Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Notes from the Underground (1864/2008) comes across as a diary penned by a self-described “spiteful” and “unattractive” anonymous narrator (p. 7). The narrator’s own self-loathing characterized by self-alienation is so obvious, that he is often referred to by critics as the Underground Man (Frank 1961, p. 1). Yet this Underground Man is the central character of Dostoyevsky’s novel and represents a subversion of the typical courageous hero. In this regard, the Underground man is an anti-hero, since as a protagonist he not only challenges the typical literary version of a hero, but also challenges conventional thinking (Brombert 1999, p....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]
