In the reading “We” by Yevgeny Zamyatin take you back to the reading Brave New World these two story are very similar when it come to the values states. They both lived by a code which determine how the people are allowed to live their day to day lives. In the reading “We” goes by the One State and in Brave New World they value the world state. in these two reading happiness seem to be define as a bad thing , but when one has happiness it allows them to feel a since of comfort for self. I think in both reading ignorance seem to be a big factor because if anyone has any knowledge of what’s right they are punish or executed. as I begin to read ” We ” I got a since of someone who is trying to get there thought out though telling his story though a journal entries describe his version of how happiness can be if only D-503 seem to be the one who is carrying us though the story line. in his first entry he is telling us about the ship he build to ” soar the cosmic space” he stated from the first entry describing his detail of how the machines is going to operate on an another planet. he stated from (pg1) one thousand years ago your heroic ancestors subdued the entire terrestrial globe to the power of the one state. Yours will be a still more glorious feet: you will integrate the infinite equation of the universe with the aid of the fire breathing electric glass integral. he feel that once he leave the one state in the ship he build he will be able to live like other figure on other planets, he feels that him and his ship is going to bring happiness to those who want to accept it. my understanding of what is going on so far is that D-503 is obsess with getting his machine out of the one state and into space. in his third entry he start to explain to us the reader how he need to express himself clearly cause he wants us to understand what the integral will bring to those who are not so sure. he is also informing us while reading his entry to be prepare to be taking for loop. as the story goes along D-503 meet I-330 now I-330 seem to be a little bit different from the other numbers. in entry six I-330 take D-503 to the ancient house where her grandmother stays form what it seem like D-503 doesn’t like her , but somehow he will stop at nothing to prove her wrong when it come to the one states rules. while in the house D-503 say to I-330 ” trying to be original” , but don’t you” what does he mean by she trying to be original? is this his way of saying trying to be human or what consider human , but I-330 stop him and start to stated the one state code ” to be original is to be in someway distinct from other hence, original is to violate equality, and that which in the language of the ancients was called ” was called being banal” in other words no one should be wishy- washy. I–330 seem to be the rebel the one who is against the one state just like Bernard in brave new world they both had their own idea of how they want things. I think they are to rebel because they want to know how it feel to live a little and not have to follow rules. she even goes as far as sneaking the “soma” to D-503. the soma in this story is nicotine or alcohol. I-330 is trying to get everyone addicted to the soma. in brave new world soma was allowed to take it what kept everyone happy. once D-530 start to realize that he had to go cause it was time for all number to be at their assigned location once he reach strange things start to come over him ,D-503 realize that he has been drug. I can say that this story is a little better read then the first story just why is everyone label as a number
In the story the machine stop it start off with a boy who seem to be missing his mother, it seems as though he will have done anything to get her attend , so he ask her go come visited him because he was not get the love he wanted from his mother by talking to her though the blue plate. In the story theirs this one machine that seems to have control of everything that goes on an what from the reading kuno wants his mom to realize that the machine doesn’t have a purpose anymore , but to vishti has her heart set differently. Once she arrives at her son cabinet he start to tell her how he is about to be homeless ( to be cast to death) Why she ask… then kuno stated to explain to her how he excape from the community and survive the other world ( little does she know he being working on how to stop the machine) an because of these action he is now going to be homeless. Now he has her right where he wants he with he story about the other world ( I think that he was doing this to get her mind off they fact the world around her is about to crumble) an how he survive the sun and the air their was different from the air they breath until he stumbles out and say the machine stop now she lost for word not know what to believe… cause the one thing she realized o the most has just been vanished. My thoughts is that I think that kuno want to just wanted some love from his mother and the only way he was going to get it was by taking away the one thing she care for more than him. ( some of the details of this story remind me of the movies Mars with Aronald Schwarzenegger jus they at they end the air saved the planet and not kill everyone
In the story of an hour Ms. Mallard is about to find out that her husband was kill in a bad accident , it was her sister Josephine who had to break the news to her knowing that she has a bad heart condition. ( it was Josephine who told her , In broken sentence; veiled hints that revealed in half concealing. ) Richard was their too the husband best friend he was the first one to receive the information about the disaster . Once the news was broken to ms.ballard she wept in her sister arm , as this is happening she decided to go I to her room to be alone , alone with her thoughts and trying to figure out how to cope with the news she has just received. She goes and sit by open window where she started to let out this long physical exhaustion the pain that she had indore for so long have finally come to pass. As she sit by the window she stared Into the sky motionless .
Ms. Ballard was in this close space looking and felling confused a waiting what was going to happen next she felt something was coming to her , but what ( when she abandoned herself a little whisper word escaped her slightly parted lips ) free, free, free what was she free from the pain the suffering the fact that her husband has been killed or maybe now she can rest now knowing that she can focus on herself ( there would be no one to live for her during those coming years) maybe her and Mr Ballard relationship wasn’t as strong to lead her to think like this again she used the words free again now she says ( free! Body and soul free)
As the sister come to check on her knowing that she not well ,she is begging her to let someone one comfort her and help her in her time of need , but Ms. Mallard said ( no she was drinking in a very elixir of life through that open window) once josphine got her sister to finally come out the room they preceeded down the stairs the front door open and to everyone one surprise it was Mr. Mallard he was never hurt in the accident in fact he was no where around it.
The shock of what was going on killed ms.mallard one because her husband didn’t die , two because all the freedom she thought she had went she was starting out the window has just came back to reality.
From my understanding of this whole story is I don’t think that she was never happy and when the news hit her that her husband was gone probably gave the will to go on , but once he surface again even though he never left all the pain and suffering came back and she choose to go with God to suffer no more
In the book brave new world Bernard was about to be cast out of town just as this was happening he bring Linda back from the savage world and to find out he father a son with her when John came in and start to call the director father he was lost for word (1) because he was not expecting to see Linda or John. What crazy the whole time I was reading I thought that they were in love , now that the director has left Bernard has taking over his ego has sky rocket ,he thinks that he the man , but all long the god mustafa mond wanted him gone as well he jus don’t know it. This is because he didn’t keep his word about the visitor seeing the savage now everyone is looking at him different. Now when bernard is giving Ms. Kenate a tour he start to find her attractive he even goes as far as trying to make a date with her , to me he sounds like the director when he was telling his story about his sex life. This whole world is really twisted and what seem to me is that anyone who want to be happy or have some type of love for someone else they are sent to Iceland. Now Linda is starting to have feeling for John but at tha same time she thinks he gay or something because he won’t look at her or even try to make a move like tha other man i the story. My question is if they were to get together what will happen to her because John is proclaimed as a savage as well i also think that Linda is get addicted to the soma because every time something goes wrong this is her outlet. These few chapter has made a big twist in the read cus at first I was not sure what was going on but now it seem if u don’t want to follow the rules then being cast out of town and sent to the other world to make example for other
