The characters of both stories made some good and bad choices for their wishes; wouldn 't you! In the fictional short story ‘What of This Goldfish, Would you wish’, Sergei Goralick, a Russian hermit living in Jaffa, was fishing on one of his valued late night fishing trips, when he caught a magical goldfish that granted him three wishes. He uses his first two wishes in order to help his friends, but is hesitant to use his last. Sergei knows that when he uses his third wish, he has to let his goldfish, who is now his best friend, free. One day, a boy named Yonatan comes to Sergei 's home, and asks him questions about what he would wish for.
The crucifixion image Hemingway has created, is a symbolic piece between Santiago and Christ. The fisherman “felt the pull of the fish and then felt with his hand the progress of the skiff through the water” (89). Santiago doesn’t flinch at the pain when the fishing line cuts through his hands, resembling Christ’s mark of disgrace through his bloody palms. “Fishing kills me exactly as it keeps me alive” (106). The pain he is feeling is killing Santiago, which is an internal feeling but the creatures he is killing keeps him and many others alive causing an external feeling or condition.
Rhetorical Analysis Essay: Consider the Lobster The lobster is a disgustingly beautiful creature, known for its delicate taste, menacing shell and controversy. In his essay, “Consider the Lobster”, David Foster Wallace describes the events and festivities of the Maine Lobster Festival and the history of the lobster to deliver a poignant message about the moral implications of killing and eating animals. Wallace is able to develop his position and vividly capture the audience’s attention through a strong use of humor, deliberate tonal shifts and a unique structure. David Foster Wallace, and “Consider the Lobster” in particular, are known for their footnotes- and for good reason. The footnoted structure of the essay is very deliberate and very
In David Foster Wallace’s article “Consider the Lobster,” he describes the harsh reality of lobster eating. At the site of the World’s Largest Lobster Cooker at the Maine Lobster Festival, Wallace describes in detail the brutal treatment of lobsters in order for people to seek pleasure in their appetite. Wallace’s argument is that it is not right to “boil a sentient creature alive just for our gustatory pleasure” (700-701). He thoroughly describes the process in which lobsters are boiled alive in order to support his argument that because lobsters have feelings too, we should not boil sentient creatures alive for our pleasure. Wallace’s argument complicates Nijhuis’ view on nature because Nijhuis makes the point that people should essentially
A great example of the differences between the Puritan Community and himself is with his thirteenth Virtue, “Humility”, where he places Jesus and Socrates on the same level, a view the Puritans would defiantly disagree with. Puritans believed everything to be Gods will, from disaster to dinner whereas Franklin used reasoning. This can be seen though his justification of eating fish after being a vegetarian for a time. He remembered seeing similar fish in the bellies of the fish they caught and concluded, "If you eat one another, I don't see why we mayn't eat you." (36) The Puritans would see the fish as gifts from God put there for them.
From personal experience, I sense acidic undercurrents, a bursting bubble, and a rusted infrastructure; a western world that is growing, yet sinking. All these forms of decay make me speculate on how things got to be this way, but also what I should do in an attempt to change the tide. In David Foster Wallace’s “Consider the Lobster,” I am consistently puzzled on his concept regarding animals’ ‘right to life’ deeming some sort of equality in animal lives compared to human lives. A selection from this text that that sticks out to me and could stand alone as the main point of this text is when Wallace talks about how people would never stand around at a food festival where cows are publicly slaughtered. He says, “Try to imagine a Nebraska Beef Festival at which part of the festivities is watching the trucks pull up and the live cattle get driven down the ramp and slaughtered right there on the World’s Largest Killing Floor or something - there’s no way” (Wallace 24?).
In terms of minimizing the weaknesses of the company, Red Lobster can improve its limited geographical presence by launching an international marketing and advertising campaign. The best way to achieve this is to work with the food industry managers of particular countries that we wish to do business with. For example, if we wanted to take our franchise to the country of Japan, it would be a good idea to send one of our representatives on a sort of “internship” there to observe the different sensibilities of the restaurant industry within that particular culture. This will provide us with firsthand knowledge and experience for which we can then create international commercials, slogans and academic is designed to appeal to and entice the eating
