Gender Roles

- As boys grow into men, many struggle with what makes real men. This struggle often dramatically changes the young person. This struggle is greatly exacerbated by the media’s portrayal of men.

Richard Wright’s “The Man Who Was Almost a Man” shows a young man who feels so derided by everyone thinking of him as a boy that he buys a gun to make himself more powerful.

The Black Plague Was Non-discriminatory.

- “To put matters simply, it [the plague] did not spare those of any age or fortune,” (15). With this account, Nicephorus Gregoras, in my opinion, impeccably sums up The Black Death: The Great Mortality of 1348-1350. A large percentage of the contributors to John Aberth’s book of documents acknowledge that the plague did not discriminate against any person or group of persons. For this reason, I consider the overall sense of what the plague meant to the people of the mid 1300s to be a looming understanding that the plague could not be avoided, no matter how wealthy, powerful, or religious a person claimed to be....   [tags: informative]
