Dorothy Allison's This is Our World - Dorothy Allison's This is Our World In her work, “This is Our World,” Dorothy Allison shares her perspective of how she views the world as we know it.

She finds little restitution in her writings, but she continues with them to “provoke more questions” (Allison 158) and makes the readers “think about what [they] rarely want to think about at all” (158)....   [tags: Philosophy Allison World Essays]

Brave New World and Gattaca - Brave New World and Gattaca Huxley  Living in a genetically perfect world is not necessarily a great achievement to mankind.  It makes one think, "where do you draw the line in the advancement of eugenics?"  Both worlds, the Brave New one and Gattaca, are alternative futures (clearly dystopic), written and shown in a believable way (not as much in BNW, though) through the use of satire.  Also, for GATTACA, the director incorporates the traditional elements of movie - a murder-mystery tied in with a love story PLUS a science fiction touch - very effectively.  Satire in Huxley's novel is glaringly obvious (mockery of the education system and the morals of today along wi...   [tags: Brave New World] 624 words

Most notably, they have sacrificed a mysterious deeper happiness which is implied, but not stated, to be pharmacologically inaccessible to the utopians.
