The story aids in convincing society of the negatives of the Bourgeoisie, as they are portrayed this way in the piece of literature through the sisters’ self-importance and sense of entitlement. Moreover, the hard working and virtuous Beauty embodies the positive aspects of the Proletariat in the text. Furthermore, the merchant’s wealth directly affects his importance in the story. This story is one of the many examples of an allegory used to promote an author's viewpoint as it is seen as a romantic story on the surface, but underneath, shows the importance of wealth and presence of class within society. This story can prove that readers must broaden their scope in order to examine all aspects of a text and analyze them in a way to draw true

Everyone chases a dream at some point in life. “The Dreamer” by Junot Diaz is a heartfelt story about one exceptional woman chasing her dreams. Diaz uses his mother’s life as an example of how a person can achieve his or her dreams by having courage and self-determination. He chooses to write about her because she is his motivation to succeed. He uses her struggles to provide evidence to support his thesis that anyone can overcome challenges and achieve success. While “The Dreamer” appears geared toward an audience consisting of individuals facing adversity, the piece was first published in a women’s magazine called More in 2011 (Diaz 128).
Life is a constant roller coaster ride of grueling struggles and bittersweet accomplishments. There are also times where one neither wins nor loses, but lessons are always learned. What we do during that time of strife and struggle defines who we will become later. Those who embrace the change and hardship, while finding a way to make it through, will become stronger in the end. In “The Dreamer”, by Junot Diaz, the dream of a young girl to become a nurse never comes to fruition, but her struggles and sacrifices enabled her to move out of a Third World country. Due to his mother’s sacrifices, her son Diaz is able to live a better life, achieving his goals of becoming a writer because she pushed him to better himself with her courage.
Reading “The Money” by Junot Diaz gave me the impression that Diaz was raised in a strict but disciplined household. There are many parallels between my life and Junot Diaz’s life. We both came from low-income families struggling for that pesky paycheck. When we did receive that paycheck, most of it ended up going back to our homelands to support the family we had left behind and or pay off the houses we owned or rented there. We both lived in the rough parts of our neighborhoods where the recently moved in immigrants were victim to robberies and cons. Coincidentally, I experienced a very similar situation that Junot Diaz described in his story.

I think that what Deborah Owens meant by "Cash is King" is that if you pay with cash it is easier to track how much money you have to spend and how much money you have left. I personally feel that only paying with cash is a smart way to save money. This is because you can physically see how much money you have left, if you were to pay with a debit card you would have to check the balance in order to see how much you have left. An all cash society would help benefit the people, but not necessarily the economy. This is because people would be willing to spend less money on things. According to Money Mozart, " If people started paying for things with cash they would only buy things they can physically afford, they would rent or buy smaller house
Thesis-In this essay I will take the time to review two stories both of the fiction nature. I will discuss the conflicts of both stories as well as the plot structure. I will talk about the characters and give my point of view. Both stories are very thought provoking which should make this very interesting to compare and contrast.
The movie’s main theme tends to contrast two groups of people in the society. One group consists of people who come from the rural areas while the other group is that of people from the urban setting. The social norm of the people in the rural areas is based on simplicity and illiteracy. The story revolves around the murder of one of The Ward Brothers. The death of William occurs and his brother Delbert is accused of killing him. Delbert denies the allegations but before he is set free he is taken into custody and made to sign some forms.
The main theme of the story expresses the notion of human scapegoat which has a devastating effect due to the crowd psychology that is presented in the story. The scenic setting stated in the beginning of the story highly opposes with the horrific violence that the story comes to. It mentions it being a beautiful summer day with flowers "blossoming profusely" and the grass "richly green” ,giving the reader to predict that the story is going to end just as well as the beginning.
In the novella “Down the Rabbit Hole” by Pablo Juan Villalobos, the story revolves around the concept of innocence. What makes this novella different from other literature that discuss innocence is that the main character Tochtli does not actual move from innocence to experience but rather stays innocent but as the audience reads on they figure out that tochtli has moved further and further away from pure innocence. In the beginning of the novella in the short notes ahead innocence is explained in the context of the novella as being incomprehension. This is a theme that is revealed throughout the entirety of the novella. The novella Down the rabbit hole sets the scene inside a palace of a later understood drug lord, who is the father of tochtli, the main character. Tochtli is only seven and therefor does not have an exact grip on what is happening around him. Juan pablo Villalobos however reveals information in such a way that the truth escapes the innocent mind of tochtli but screams out to the readers.
