SURNAME 1Student’s NameProfessor’s NameCourseDateCompare and ContrastIn this paper, I will determine a common thread from the novel “The Amazing Adventuresof Kavalier and Clay” by Michael Chabon, the short story “Problems of Art” by James Alan McPherson, and the poem “Laundry” by Bruce Smith. From the texts, I will highlight how the personas in the texts defy discrimination amongst the society as the common thread, and I will look at the varying degrees’ of the society’s prejudice. The individual themes that are hard to ignore within the texts continue to happen in our daily lives. In a society, discrimination is the accomplished or intended differential treatment of an individual or a social group for reasons of specific traits that are general. In the novel “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay,” the theme of discrimination is seen when the Jews are discriminated against by the Nazis (12). In the short story “Problems of Art,” the text highlights racial outlining and discernment towards ladies. In the literature, we are familiarized to the issue of how Mrs. Farragot was victimized and differentiated as she was detained and accused of driving under the influence by Officer Smothers (55). The story highlights how African American women face discrimination.In the poem “Laundry,” we see the discrimination a son, and his father faces due to the filthy nature of the work they do (lines 6-7). However, we realize that the overall theme is work and struggling. The issue is evident via indication by the correlation of the public safety generals and also via the orientation of the Jews who were perceived to be higher through the years off and after the revolution of the Russians.
