Thomas Hardy’s novel, like the majority of mid-Victorian novels was first published in serial format in the magazine Graphic in 1884-5 and then in double-decker format. Thus we have two versions of the novel and two different audiences.The initial publication is serial format accounts for much of the chapter structure of this, and most other serialized, Victorian novels. Since the object was to persuade the reader to continue to buy issues of the magazine (or to subscribe), chapters end on a mystery or a note of suspense.Novels, after their serial runs were complete, would next be republished in hardcover, normally in triple-decker (3 volume) format, a tradition that is strong through the mid-Victorian period, but as reflected in the double-decker publication of Hardy and Marie Corelli’s pioneering initial single volume releases, was losing traction by the fin-de-siecle.Hardcover multi-volume editions were intended for sale to circulating libraries (most notably, Mudie’s). Individuals paid for subscriptions to libraries and selected volumes of a monthly list that the libraries shipped to them in the mail, and which were to be returned at the end of the month.The audiences for both the formats were often female, but not always, and from the middle and upper middle classes primarily.

I would add that when a situation does not seem to be working, find another one. So many times we go through life just sticking with the hand we were dealt, and not looking for am alternative. I think that one of the morals is that anyone can be the change she or he wants.

Many aspects of the society depicted in 1984 are frightening, but none more than the lack of rebellion. Perhaps this is the same as saying that the scariest thing about this world is how powerful – or all powerful – the government is in this society.

Personally, I do not like lewd or rude comedy. I like puns and plays on words, and complicated scenarios. I don’t like jokes about farts or sex. I don’t like bathroom humor in general, and I prefer sophisticated humor (but not too sophisticated).

If we want to approach The Great Gatsby as a love story, we have to look at the innocent beginnings to the love between Daisy and Gatsby. As in so many great love stories, there is a moment of pure, innocent affection shared by the two.This affection is tied up in the vision that each character has for his/her future. These visions are challenged by the intervention of circumstance – another trope of the classic love story. The obstacles in the way of a successful relationship persist even to the end of the novel, as Daisy and Gatsby never get married.In this way, Gatsby is not the quintessential love story. The lovers fail. Even in tragic love stories there is some success for the lovers, some unbreakable bond established. This is not true for Gatsby.

The profit of the company in the first year was 8.6 million. The loss in the second year was 5.9 million and that in the third year was 6.3 million.The net loss in the three years was 6.3 + 5.9 – 8.6 = 3.6 millionOver the three, the average loss is 3.6/3 = 1.2 millionThe required average loss over the three years is 1.2 million.

Drug tolerance involves both psychological and physiological factors. Physiological tolerance occurs when a subject’s reaction to a specific drug and concentration of the drug is progressively reduced, requiring an increase in concentration to achieve the desired effect.

The name “third” on Earth is automatically negative.  Even if a third makes it into battle school (the purpose of the government allowing a 3rd child to be born into one family), he is still considered an outcast among his peers, as well as an outcast in his family.  He was permitted to be born, which is a reminder to his older siblings that they didn’t make it.  And in Ender’s case, he is a constant reminder of the religious lives they left behind when they chose to comply with IF orders governing the number of children they could have.  Both came from deeply religious families which praised having several children.Consider, in chapters 1-3, Ender is still on Earth.  He has not yet been selected for Battle School.  His monitor comes out and there is no immediate reaction from the IF officials to come get him.  Therefore, Ender’s status as a “3rd” (which essentially means he was permitted by the government to be born with the hope that he would meet the criteria his brother and sister did not meet to allow him into Battle School), is a negative thing.  For the few short hours (what, a day and a half?) that he goes without the monitor, he fears as well as hears from Peter that he is worthless.  The idea of living the rest of his life, on Earth, as a 3rd, would be the constant reminder that he is a failure.

The city is shown to be a realm where injustice and brutal unfairness dominates all aspects of consciousness.  Jurgis’ life in Packingtown is one whereby individuals who have economic power are able to determine right and wrong.  These individuals possess autonomy and are able to control all aspects of their being in the world.  For people like Jurgis, however, there is little hope for autonomy and for any sense of justice.  The challenging element, though, is that if one wishes to build and develop a life for themselves, they will have to move to the city because the rapid rise of industrialization and urbanization is making the city “the only game in town.”  While there is a rural element in America, it is gradually becoming overtaken by the urban one as capitalism is an endless machine of growth and proliferation.  Jurgis finds some level of solace in the rural setting because of its wide open nature of freedom, and because it is not Packingtown. For a moment, Jurgis is reminded of his own humanity, being able to recollect life in Lithuania, which for him, seems like a lifetime ago, given what he experienced in Packingtown.  Yet, this is short lived, as he recognizes the need to make money and provide for himself, meaning that the city must be evident and back in his life.  In this, one sees that Sinclair is making the argument that there is no escape from the urban setting, and that its problems have to be addressed in some form or another.
