  • Buffalo Bill And Deadwood Dick - 1,818 words
    Buffalo Bill And Deadwood Dick Phillips Eng. 124 Writing Assn. #1 I Cant Hear a Damn Word Youre Saying Those who deprecate the free supply of such ficticious works as the public demands, are generally in favor of the entire exclusion of fiction of a sensational cast, a course which will unavoidably result in alienating from the library the very class most needing its beneficial influence (Denning, 49). It is obvious here that William Fletcher attached more significance and importance to dime novels than most serious intellectuals did in the late 1800s. In fact, most people, particularly in the middle class, thought dime novels were vulgar and that they caused young children to imitate the ac ...

    Dick Enberg of NBC sports once said, "The Super Bowl has come to represent the sport pinnacle of modern society, the place which young men reach for footballs and sometimes catch a piece of immorality on the way." For a full 12 months a year, 30 teams of the NFL practice all for one day in January. Every phase of every team operation is focused on a single goal "the world championship of professional football". Over 1800 men have participated in this special day. Jeff Kaye of NFL films said, "This game has become America's biggest one day sporting event. One play follows a player the rest of his life." On Super Bowl Sunday you will experience distinctive mood experienced by virtually everyon ...

  • Good And Evil Moby Dick - 612 words
    Good And Evil- Moby Dick Take Home Essay I, 2 Rebecca Ison In Melville's Moby-Dick, Queegueg and Ahab show distinction between good and evil through the treatment of others, themselves and situations. Although Queequeg is a pagan, he has more Christian attributes than even the most devout Christians on the Pequod. Ahab is not the person that everyone would expect to be the most iniquitous character of them all. Most would say that Moby Dick himself personifies evil however, he has innocent characteristics about him. This is unfair, as is calling Queequeg a savage or saying that Ahab is civilized. When Queequeg is first introduced we see a savage cannibalistic beast, returning from selling he ...

  • Ignorance By Moby Dick - 815 words
    Ignorance By Moby Dick Ignorance is seen every day of our lives. Even people in the 1850s were aware of ignorance. Ignorance is defined as being uneducated or resulting from or showing lack of knowledge. Ignorance can be taken to extremes though. There is complete ignorance where the person thinks that even though they do not understand it all they still know everything. Then others of us say that even though I am not sure about it I am knowledgeable to my ignorance. In Moby Dick, Ishmaels ignorance can be related to my own in some ways. "The more I pondered over this harpooner, the more I abominated the thought of sleeping with him. It was fair to presume that being a harpooner, his linen o ...

  • Moby Dick - 1,941 words
    Moby Dick Melville's Symbols in Moby-Dick Herman Melville began working on his epic novel Moby-Dick in 1850, writing it primarily as a report on the whaling voyages he undertook in the 1830s and early 1840s. Many critics suppose that his initial book did not contain characters such as Ahab, Starbuck, or even Moby Dick, but the summer of 1850 changed Melville's writing and his masterpiece. He became friends with author Nathaniel Hawthorne and was greatly influenced by him. He also read Shakespeare and Milton's Paradise Lost (Murray 41). These influences lead to the novel Melville completed and published in 1851. Although shunned by critics after its release, Moby-Dick enjoyed a critical renai ...

  • Moby Dick - 1,683 words
    Moby Dick Moby Dick can be viewed as a tragedy. Websters Dictionary defines tragedy as a "dramatic composition, dealing with a serious or somber theme, typically that of a great person destined through flaw of character or conflict with some overpowering force, fate or circumstance to downfall or destruction." This describes Moby Dick very well, as we discover as the story unfolds. Ahab, one of the key characters in the novel, can be viewed as the protagonist, one who causes the actions that occur and who brings the story to its tragic conclusion. He is seen as the tragic hero. He is a man distinguished by courage and ability, who is admired for his qualities and achievements. The reader can ...

  • Moby Dick - 261 words
    Moby Dick In the novel Moby Dick, Ishmael is saved while the rest of the Pequods crew die at sea. There is a specific point in the theme of the novel where each crew member sealed their fate. These thematic reasons make sense at the end of the novel. The Pequods crew dies because of the pledge they made to Ahab. They put their lives on the line to capture the White Whale. At the time, all of the crew members on deck thought Moby Dick was a actual whale they were trying to catch. As the story progresses, they start to realize Moby Dick is"god-like" and "immortal." This leaves them chasing a Whale that is more important then life itself. Thus they are damned to death. Ishmael makes the same pl ...

  • Moby Dick And The Counterpane Theme - 1,649 words
    Moby Dick And The Counterpane Theme There is a symbolic element in every great literary work, which makes the author's message more tangible and real to his readers. In Herman Melville's Moby Dick, one such element is the idea of the "counterpane," or tapestry, of humanity, that is woven throughout the story as a symbol of the world's multiculturalism. Melville develops this symbolism on at least three levels, proving that the world is indeed a counterpane of diverse cultures, races, and environments, in which we, while supremely unique individuals, are always connected by our humanity. On a grandiose scale, Melville uses the open sea as a metaphor for the world and mankind. There are many c ...

    Subject: English - Melville: Moby Dick Good and Evil in a Morally Indifferent Universe in Moby Dick The moral ambiguity of the universe is prevalent throughout Melvilles Moby Dick. None of the characters represent pure evil or pure goodness. Even Melvilles description of Ahab, whom he repeatedly refers to "monomaniacal," suggesting an amorality or psychosis, is given a chance to be seen as a frail, sympathetic character. When Ahabs "monomaniac" fate is juxtaposed with that of Ishmael, that moral ambiguity deepens, leaving the reader with an ultimate unclarity of principle. The final moments of Moby Dick bring the novel to a terse, abrupt climax. The mutual destruction of the Pequod and the W ...

Dick is expressing his sarcastical opinion of man in society and man's inability to distinguish between the truth and fantasy. Using his main character's life, Garson Poole, the author illustrates teh delusion of mankind's freedom. This delusion is demonstrated by three components of Garson's life: his automated reality chip, and his emotional and physical makeup as an oranic robot. Garson Poole who, prior to his detection of the reality chip was under the impression that he was exempted from all the world's restraints, finds himself in a bliss of confusion when he realizes that his life is being dictated by an ...

These are the qualities that makes film noir a perfect blend of form and content, where the desperation and hopelessness of situations is reflected in the visual style, which drenches the world in shadows and has only a few occasional bursts of sunlight. Film noir, occasionally acerbic, usually cynical, often enthralling, gives us characters trying to elude some kind of mysterious ...
