1970s, Drugs, and Rock 'N Roll
This 10 page report discusses the ways in which America's counterculture learned to turn to drugs, sex, and rock and roll to express their discontent with society in the late 1960s and early 1970s. As the rebellion grew, musicians turned to angry guitars and crashing drums to illustrate their frustration. Artists such as the Kinks, Jimi Hendrix and The Who turned up their amplifiers in order to reach out to the growing discontent of America's youth. And when the volume got turned down, it was to hear Eric Clapton's 1973 version of Bob Marley's I Shot the Sheriff and the JJ Cale classic Cocaine. Drugs and rock and roll were undeniably interrelated throughout the seventies. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
Money in 'The Lame Shall Enter First' by Flannery O'Connor and 'The Rocking Horse Winner by D.H. Lawrence
5 pages in length. Money's presence in D. H. Lawrence's "The Rocking-Horse Winner" and Flannery O'Connor's "The Lame Shall Enter First" illustrates how people become far too dependent upon its purported ability to ease life's problems. While both stories provide perfect examples of the way in which contemporary culture has turned into a money-dependent society, Lawrence's "The Rocking-Horse Winner" badgers the point home with such force that the reader suspects from the very start how significant a role money will play in the characters' ultimate conflict. Similarly, O'Connor's "The Lame Shall Enter First" captures the essence of depravation, as well, when Rufus refuses to accept the valuable telescope Sheppard gives him so that he might become "enlightened."
