Two men named Grant and Lee were able to do just that. In the reading “Grant and Lee: A Study of Contrast” by Bruce Catton, the author writes a compare and contrast essay detailing their backgrounds, personalities, and aspirations.

When it comes down to these two men’s background Lee was perceived as more traditional. For example, the text states “His background were family, culture, and tradition” (Catton, 352). This can be interpreted as him being a caring man who valued the people around him and had an overall respect for the traditions and values he was raised upon.

After comparing the two men’s backgrounds, it’s easy to see that Lee was by far the more impressionable character.

    In Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" he uses various comedic devices to create comedy; most noticeably melodrama and farce. These devices are used excessively in order to repeatedly address serious matters in a light-hearted manner; Wilde does this to create humour as opposed to offending his audience. Wilde deliberately wrote the play in this manner as he was fully conscious that his audience consisted of upper class Victorians. Throughout the play, Oscar Wilde articulately…
