  • Battle Royal By Ellison - 1,200 words
    Battle Royal By Ellison "Battle Royal," by Ralph Ellison was a very difficult piece of literature for me to understand. As a little background information, Ellison was very much into music (228). He was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on March 1, 1914 (221). Different themes are presented throughout this short story, which reflect different views that Ellison had at the time that he wrote this essay. One boy is invited to speak at local mens club where he will deliver his graduation speech. As I go on, I will discuss the nature of the short story and how it affected me. The narrators view of this entire situation at the mens club is kind of humiliating which will later set the stage for even ...

  • Borges And Bertolucci - 791 words
    Borges And Bertolucci There are a number of differences between Bernardo Bertolucci's movie The Spider Stratagem and the story on which it is based, Jorge Louis Borges' The Theme of The Traitor and The Hero; however, overall Bertolucci does a pretty accurate portrayal of the essence, at least, of Borges' story. Besides changing the setting of the plot, there is also much more information relayed in the movie. This is very much due to that the story is simply a suggestive piece, while the movie had to fill in all of the blanks. In the movie, Bertolucci had to add characters, motivations, and many vast details that are left out of the story. To begin with, Borges is very vague in his ideas on ...
