    PDF/EPUB Arthur Miller Û Û Focus Kindle ↠ focus download, Focus PDFJust who is the main character in Arthur Miller's Focus? Is is Mr Newman or Mr Finklestein? Only if the reader makes Mr Finklestein the main character can you actually see that Arthur Miller thought anti Semitism to be wrong I humbly feel that the real focus of Focus is the persecution of Mr Finklestein for nothing than being Jewish I want to cal

    PDF/EPUB Arthur Miller Û Û Focus Kindle ↠ focus download, Focus PDFMan this book opened my eyes to a piece of American history I had no idea happened A short sighted man a gentile avoids wearing glasses because they accentuate those features of his that bring to mind the stereotypical face of a jew A dangerous image at a time when America is going through a nasty phase of anti semitism looking to blame the jews for all their problems; the economy the war the perceived decline in their neighbourhoods When his eyesight gets so poor it noticably affects his work his boss insists on him wearing specs and then his troubles really begin These new specactles are so powerful even his surname begins to look jewish Then if things didn't seem

    PDF/EPUB Arthur Miller Û Û Focus Kindle ↠ focus download, Focus PDFWhen first published in 1945 Focus was one of the few pieces of fiction that explicitly shined a light on the very real rise of Anti Semitism and bigotry on American shores even while American troops were fighting fascist regimes overseas Bigotry can rear its pernicious head in any community at any time; this was Arthur Miller’s point That said I would argue that Focus serves a greater role as a historical document than it does as a relevant narrative for the modern era Overall Miller treats the concept that “racism is bad” as this a jaw dropping revelation which in a present context is patronizingly insulting In this day and age saying that Anti Semitism

    PDF/EPUB Arthur Miller Û Û Focus Kindle ↠ focus download, Focus PDFWho knew Arthur Miller wrote novels? Certainly not me before reading Focus It is very clear when reading this novel that Miller is also a playwright The style is incredibly cinematic; the narrator hangs over characters and seamlessly drops in and out of their lives the action in this book is dramatic and I think that its psychological dimension would be enhanced if performed There is without a doubt a blurring of styles in Focus which makes it so readable and also so thought provoking Arthur Miller is most famously a great playwright but this work has also shown him to be a

    PDF/EPUB Arthur Miller Û Û Focus Kindle ↠ focus download, Focus PDFI came across this novel in a used bookstore and thought the premise sounded fascinating especially since I've been a fan of Miller's dramatic works The story follows Lawrence Newman after he awakes in the middle of the night to hearing a screaming woman being assaulted But since the woman is a minority he largely seems to pay it no mind The bachelor enjoys a home in a white Christian neighborhood and works in New York City and is largely successful until his eyesight gets the best of him and he's forced to get glasses His glasses as he feared make him appear Jewish in the race obsessed world of the World War II 1940s What follows is Lawrence's demise as those around him increasingly suspect him to be a Jew and he becomes subjected to the same cruel realities that he perpetuated just months before Miller's
