According to Peter Grevious, the American Revolution was caused by the requirement to obey a supreme authority that sent the colonists into total neglect. As the wife of the Old Nobleman who the settlers were under the arm of, “she was an omnipotent Goddess and ought to be worshipped as such, that it was the height of impudence and disobedience in the new settlers to dispute her authority,” (7). The settlers pledged agreements with the Old Nobleman through The Great Paper, obeying the regulations set. The wife then has an unlimited amount of authority over the settlers, making her utterly supreme. With her power, the wife observed “that the new settlers were very fond of a particular kind of cider… she published another edict obliging them

My Fair Lady and Nickeled and Dimed are both great novels focusing in on wealth and money. While these books are unique in their own different ways, they are basically the opposites of one another! My Fair Lady focusing on the young and witty Eliza Doolittle who is brought up into a high class lady. While in Nickeled and Dimed, Barbara is leaving her high class paying job and moving down into a low-class minimum wage paying job. It is very interesting to see how these two books are so similar but have two drastically different situations. Furthermore, I believe that people should respect each class more, we should not scrutinize others based on their education or income level. These novels really look into what it is like to be in another person's shoes, and I honestly feel that in the end of both novels, each character had gone on their own journey and in the end had more respect and outlook on the class system.
