The members of “Fight Club,” were men in power, they were working class men, they were every day, ordinary men, looking for an escape from reality. In chapters nineteen through twenty-one of the movie, which begins one hour and two minutes into the movie and runs for twenty-five minutes, until one hour and twenty-seven minutes into the movie, the complete control Tyler has over these grown men is shown by their excessive want to be a part of something, especially this “Fight Club.” In chapter nineteen, the chapter is called “Chemical Burn,” in this scene Tyler pours a chemical onto the narrator’s hand, and he lets him, he just struggles through the pain, when any rational thinking person would get Tyler into trouble for torture, but the narrator allows it to happen and once the pain is gone he does nothing to get back at Tyler. In chapter 20, “The Middle Children of History,” Tyler gives this speech to convey to the members that they need to do something to change their lives because they are just allowing it to pass them by. But those are chapters leading up to the chapter I felt most showcased Tyler’s almost totalitarian control, chapter twenty-one.

This decision is important in analysing her character, as well as the role of gender in society. Women and men during this time period had set roles in society, which were expected to be followed. Rosalind’s character is significant in that she embodies this view, as she is able to assume the position of a man, and “perform” it convincingly. For most of the play, Rosalind poses as a young man, Ganymede, in order to avoid the limitations of being a woman, as well as to “woo”(3.3. 435) Orlando. The decision to remain undercover longer than truly necessary can be attributed to the realization that men enjoy considerably more freedom, and are more respected.

Pollitt maybe thinks that logically women only follow difference feminism because it makes them feel good, this shouldn’t be the case. Pollitt may be suggesting that the ideas of difference feminism can be countered by looking at the world. Difference feminists claim that the lives of men and women are distinct. Pollitt logically claims that, “The ultimate paradox of difference feminism is that it has come to the fore at a moment when the lives of the sexes are becoming less distinct than they ever have been in the West” (411). Pollitt’s logic is that we all seen how women have dominated roles that were considered just for men.

The story Beowulf was a great story to read and a great movie to watch; however, the battles were very eye catching and had a lot of extravagant and heroic doings of Beowulf.

The author explained how Star Wars is a mystico-religio-scientiﬁc human drama that gives life mystery and volatility. According to Chapter 3: The Force Be With You, “…platonic dualism of matter and spirit adopted in varying degrees by Christian theology has simply been dissolved in the Force…” (Caputo, 85). What do you think are the consequences of this alteration if there are any? I found it problematic when he stated that “…Star Wars is to withdraw within… [and to] …recollect your senses…”
