The Living Dead of Afghanistan Travesties are committed against women every day, in every country, in every city, town and home. In Afghanistan women are not only discriminated against, they are publicly reduced to animals. Women are deprived of basic human rights: they are not allowed to travel outside their homes without being completely covered by the traditional shroud-like burqa; they are not allowed to speak or walk loudly in public; they are not allowed to laugh or speak with other women;
Apathy and the Living Dead It’s nothing to die; it’s frightful not to live. - Victor Hugo The word “Apathy” has its origin in Greek and literally means "without feelings." Isn’t that a description of the dead? That was what Victor Hugo was referring to when he wrote, "It’s nothing to die; it’s frightful not to live."

Recently zombies have become a hot topic due to their popularity in books, movies, and tv shows like the Walking Dead. “By any observable metric, the living dead have become the hottest paranormal pop culture phenomenon of this century” (Drezner 825). In reality one would think zombies deserve to be killed, but for some reason many have become very intrigued by the so called walking dead. In culture when people feel like they are lacking power that is when they find zombies to be very interesting.
Looking at the piece ‘Sound of the Dead’, it is possible to analyse the story with a focus on popular culture, and eye on the theory of the zombie genre. Since 1932 the zombie has been a part of the silver screen with Victor Halperin’s ‘White Zombie’, but it was not until 1968 with George A.

As the popularity of the zombie film continues to reach new heights, so too has the rise of zombies in literature, gaming and television
six years. Modern zombies first appeared in George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead in 1968. These zombies were the slow moving, staggering ghouls that one has seen in countless films, but in 1985, Return of the Living Dead featured a new kind of zombie, the first fast moving and talking ghoul. Both Night of the Living dead 1968 and Return of the Living Dead 1985 feature the zombie as its villain, but Return of the living dead’s fast moving, talking zombies are a more modern take on the movie monster
In Night of the Living Dead, the zombies were eventually eliminated. Or were they? Theorists argue that the monster’s elusiveness is due to its physical, psychological and social characteristics that cross the lines of classification. Human’s innate fear of the unknown is due to their inability to make a distinction or draw a clear conclusion.

The Living Dead in The Things They Carried I have done things that I am not proud of and some things that will never be mentioned in public again. In everything that I did wrong I tried to justify or make it seem to be less of a negative act. Tim O'Brien does not do this in his short story named "The Man I Killed." O'Brien instead gives the young Vietnamese man a history, a present, and a whole life. He does this by creating an elaborate story of teenage love, family conflict, and personal pride
First released in October 1968 and shot for an underwhelming $114,000, Night of the Living Dead was created by a team of movie business outsiders from Pittsburgh (IMDb.com). The Image Ten, as they were later known, led by George Romero, created a horror film unlike any that had come before. Although the horror film had been around for nearly as long as the cinema, Night of the Living Dead was revolutionary in its production, its subtext as understood in historical reference, and its lasting effects
Zombies have been around since George A. Romero first introduced them in the movie Night of the Living Dead in 1968. However, over the past decade, the American public’s interest in zombies has skyrocketed, especially in media culture. Since the year 2000, over one-hundred and fifty zombie movies have hit the screens of the American people.
