Byron’s “The Corsair” introduces the most Byronic of Byron’s heroes: Conrad. He then proceeds to emasculate him and proposes Gulnare, a former sex slave, as an alternative hero. Through Conrad, Gulnare and the entirety of “The Corsair” Byron questions the status quo by using heroic couplets with a social parasite, reversing gender roles, and ignoring conventions. In doing so, it demonstrates the multitude of Byron’s voices ((Aside from the artistic uses of the multiple Byronic personae, they also seem to argue that he was, as believed, bi-polar. At times, his poetry seems less of an argument with others than an internal conversation he was having with himself.
Campbell wrote a book called The Hero with a Thousand Faces, where this theory is explained. The main parts of the theory are how the story starts, often one of the first steps is that the hero is called to adventure. This call to adventure starts the hero’s journey from normal life. Next comes the refusal of the call, most of the time they
Though Jack was a successful leader, Jack’s style of leadership and his ideals as a leader are “wrong”. Keep in mind that “right” and “wrong” is subjective. Jack leads as a dictator which limits the rights of his members and as a group of boys striving to survive on the island, the members of the group should be part in the decision making. Jack’s main goal on the island is to sustain a living on the island and not to survive which is “wrong”. Though “wrong” as mentioned before, is subjective, Ralph’s goal is the most appropriate as it is part of the human instinct.
The role of servitude in leadership offers a unique perspective that seems to challenge the traditional perspectives of the various leadership theory 's. Author Max DePree, In Leadership, is an Art state, "The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between the leader must become a servant," (1989). Servant leadership has boundless potential to help develop growth for leaders and followers.
The competing style is the “win-lose” approach, where you act in a decisive way to be able to achieve you goal, without advising the other party. This can also be on the disadvantage of the other party which will result in a loss for them. This style is mostly used in times of emergency when there is a time factor that needs to be taking into consideration("5 Conflict Management Styles At A Glance"). The leadership style that would be most effective regarding a competing style is the commanding leader. The reason why i chose the commanding leadership style is because when you are using the competing conflict management style you need someone who takes control and is decisive.
A picture book is a narrative art where words and illustrations tell a story. Jonny Duddle’s The Pirate Cruncher shows how illustrations and text can supplement each other. The theme of this story was greed where a pirate crew blinded by greed met their demise. The story opens with a monstrous tentacle writing a letter. The illustrator makes the readers see from the monster’s point of view.
However, characters such as Carmen (Ariadna Gil) further reinstate this feature by complying and being ‘domesticated’. From the very beginning, when Ofelia meets the Captain for the first time, the aggressive man shows his violent attitude; Vidal, being greeted by Ofelia with her left hand, changes the situation by gripping it firmly and stating ‘It 's the other hand, Ofelia.’ His fixation for even the most superfluous gestures could show an underling obsession towards his desire of controlling and having power, which ultimately is a typical trait of Fascism. As Holmes (2006) explains, ‘we understand such fascist logic as a desire to order, hierarchize, control, repress, direct and impose limits.’ Furthermore, Paul Julian Smith (2007) points out how the Captain greets Carmen and Ofelia by saying ‘Bienvenidos’ and not ‘Bienvenidas’; using the masculine plural instead of the feminine thereby showing how he has
This is done in order to create a dark and malevolent tone to associate with the Puritan Religion. This is first scene in Hawthorne’s introductory to the novel, when he describes of his ancestors as having, “ the Puritanic traits, both good and evil” (15). Here, Hawthorne introduces a negative connotation with the Puritan Religion by associating the word, “evil”, with the beliefs of Puritan Culture. From here on out, the audience views the Puritans as the antagonist of a peaceful society. Hawthorne then follows his beliefs expressed in his introduction when he displays how members of the Puritan Society treat Hester for going against the beliefs of their conservative views.
Shakespeare’s Caliban is a slave that rebels to be free. Caliban’s relationship to Setebos in the poem does what Shakespeare doesn’t and paints Caliban as a being with his own morals and thoughts and by extension, his own humanity. For the poem, Browning uses the
Lazarillo de Tormes is an anonymously written pseudo-autobiographical novel that details the calamitous events of a young, poor boy’s journey to maturity, the plot of which provides a stage for Lazarillo’s moral rise and decline to be set. Said by many, including Franciso Márquez Villanueva to be a entirely a sharp social satire, “ferozmente sacrástico y pesimista por sistema,” this interpretation is diametrically opposed to Marcel Bataillon’s interpretation that the work is “un livre pour rire, de burlas,” that is, a novel that falls short of the acerbic satire of later picaresque novels and instead prioritises humanity and individuality, especially in the case of Lazarillo. I will apply these two conflicting viewpoints to the events and themes of the novella, and then contrast their implications to attain a final, personal opinion of whether the anonymous author is more concerned with satirising society by focusing on general error, or with creating a humanised, complex, fallible protagonist. Firstly, it is important to look at the obviously sympathetic nature of the young Lazarillo in the first three tratados. The autobiographical form of the book instantly establishes an immediate intimacy between the reader and Lazarillo by
