    Although the show was made in the 1970s, reruns are occasionally still aired on cable TV, and many episodes are available to view for free on YouTube. The situations the characters found themselves in are still relevant today, over 40 years later. The main character of the show is Archie Bunker (played by Carroll O 'Connor). Archie is a white man in his 50s who is struggling to accept the changes taking place in the world around him. He is portrayed as a racist and bigoted man. While that may be true some of the time, he is just reacting to events as those around him had for many years, even though the world was changing rapidly during this time in history. The fictional characters and situations in All in the Family were meant to portray real-world people and situations taking place in the 1970s. Archie Bunker was meant to represent the common, middle-age white American male during that era. Many of these men were indeed racist, but were not bad people. They did not have ill-will toward different groups of people, they were just taught and…

    Through the Looking Glass, published in 1971, is a work of children’s fiction by Lewis Carroll. It is the famous sequel to Carroll’s first novel Alice in Wonderland, although it has no reference to its events. Generally referred to as ‘‘nonsense literature’’, it is a story full of humour, riddles and rhymes, all throughout while acting as a satire on the people in Carroll’s life at the time.

Her journey begins simply enough at the bank of a river with her sister, when out of the blue, a white, clothed, talking* rabbit hops past her. Alice hastily follows it right into an…

    The different ideas of what Alice should be are interesting to see because we can see the differences in culture being reflected upon her. Comparing the “original” Alice and what other authors, artist, etc. believe Alice should be is interesting because it shows how people’s different values can change one specific character in a novel. Alice may be one character from one specific book, but with all of the different versions of Alice in Wonderland it is safe to say that there is more than one…
