Thomas Robert Malthus’ An Essay on the Principle of Population (1798), Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations, and David Ricardo’s On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation attempt to explain the newly integrated world while criticising the mercantilist ideas that the European countries had adopted during this period of time. The contrast between mercantilism and classical economists focuses on wealth being tied to gold vs. exchanging goods of value through trade. These early economists were aware of the negative externalities of that the trade system had introduced into the lives of working people, but often justified the concepts due to efficiency or sustainability. In Thomas Robert Malthus’ An Essay on the Principle of Population (1798), the author highlights the issue of overpopulation and food production restraints. From this, Malthus explains that the power of population is far greater than the power to provide food to man and proposes that "population must always be kept down to the level of the means of subsistence” (Medema 200). Malthus goes into further detail, modeling an arithmetic subsistence production against a geometric population growth. He then describes the checks that help keep population in order, preventative and positive. Preventative checks are the “foresight of the difficulties attending the rearing of a family”…

Kincaid argues that through the contrasting elements of fiction and reality, negative results occur as a means of drawing attention to the perpetual uncertainty within Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, “The Lady of Shallot”. This level of ambiguity is emphasized within the text through the Lady’s lack of agency, causing the events of the poem to be enacted on her rather than through her own devise. Kinkaid pushes forth the idea that the text removes the Lady’s…

Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem and Waterhouse’s painting, both titled “The Lady of Shalott,” depict the lady not experiencing reality and only seeing life through a reflection.
