After the Ball, by Leo Tolstoy: The Impact of Cultural Objects on Individual Social Identity

- When reading Leo Tolstoy’s After the Ball, the impression of ideology shaping judgment, or perception of the world, is delivered in the first line. The concept that good and bad may just be a matter of perspective is a large part of this short story, especially in how your “environment” or ideology causes you to value things differently. In this paper I will look to explore how ideological sign-exchange value of objects in Ivan Vasilyevich’s experience at the ball, as well as in life, can have multiple meanings, and how those values affect an individual’s stature in class structure....   [tags: Classes, Perspective and Value]

How Does The Media Regulate False Consciousness And Why Does Influence Social Classes?

- How does the media enforce false consciousness and why does that influence social classes. I have studied Marxist theory in almost all of my literature classes for the past four years. I have become quite familiar to it, but I am always taken aback when the topic of false consciousness arises. According to false counsciousness is “any belief or view that prevents a person from being able to understand the true nature of a situation.” Another definition I found compelling states that “when an ideal functions to mask its own failure, it is a false ideal, or a false consciousness, whose real purpose is to promote the interests of those in power.” (Tyson 56) Looking at those two...   [tags: Working class, Sociology, Class consciousness]

Daisy Buchanan: A Woman as Roaring as the Twenties

- Rosie the Riveter, star of the American World War II poster who sports the iconic workers’ jumpsuit and red bandanna, was a symbol for modern, emancipated women in the 1950s, before becoming a mere representation of vintage artwork. The independence that this character models is represented by Scott Fitzgerald’s Daisy, in The Great Gatsby, who at first glance seems to oppose this. Her innocence and purity, however, can be easily deconstructed, because she both supports the traditional image of women, and challenges it, fitting perfectly into the context of ideological transformation of the 1920s....   [tags: Keats, Fitzgerald, icons]

Little Red Cap by Carrol Anna Duffy

- Literature emerges as an assemblage of external influence, literary form, readership, and authorial intent (Tyson 136). New Criticism asserts that only the analysis of literary form, being concrete and specific examples that exist within the text (135), can accurately assess a literary work. New Criticism discounts authorial agency and cultural force that informs the construction of a given text. New Critics believe that these sources of external evidence produce intentional fallacy, the flawed acceptance of the author’s intention as the text’s true meaning, and affective fallacy, the confusion of the text with the emotions it produces (136-37)....   [tags: criticism, readership, relationship]

Therefore, economic power is comprised of social and political power, which is why Marxists “refer to socioeconomic class, rather than economic class, when talking about the class structure” (54)....   [tags: theory, marxist, martians]
