Words: 92
Pages: 1

The novel The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, discusses many social issues including immigrants being led to believe that they are either inferior or superior to others. Jurgis and his family are no different from other immigrants who came to America to be free and get rich. They are also no different in the sense that they are lead to believe that they are either less or more than who they truly are; these two mindsets, no matter how prominent the characters make them seem, never end up changing their positions in life.
