How did the availability of natural resources spark the Industrial Revolution?
The United States’ large amount of resources like iron, coal and lumber were integral to the start of the Industrial Revolution. Countries in Europe that did not have these resources could purchase them from the United States, generating capital to invest in our own industrialization. These resources were also used in inventions, like the steel plow, that helped create the Industrial Revolution. Wood and coal were used to power machines like the steam boat, which made waterways usable for transportation, and to power factories.
In Act 1 of "Hamlet", what is an example of a pun?
When Hamlet says, “I am too much in the sun,” he is referring to his new status as Claudius’s son, the fact that everyone’s attention is on him and the cheeriness that surrounds him. In Scene 2, Claudius repeatedly calls Hamlet his son, something that Hamlet hates; the spelling of “sun” is a play on “son”. This line can also be interpreted as a reference to Hamlet suddenly becoming the center of attention. His mother and uncle/step-father are very worried about his mental health because he is still mourning his father. They are also very interested in his future plans and urge him to stay with them and not go back to school. In this case, being in “the sun” can be taken to mean being in the spotlight. This line can also be understood as Hamlet expressing his anger at his family for getting over his father’s death so quickly. It has only been two months since Old Hamlet’s death, but Queen Gertrude and Claudius are in high spirits. By saying that he is “too much in the sun,” Hamlet is saying that he is surrounded by too much cheerfulness.
