Also, on page 220 it talks about Booth not Feeling empowered to send a warning or any other command directly to Turner. If he had done this it might have saved the lives lost on the Lusitania. There were other things wrong, like the contradicting messages that the Lusitania received, but the ship decided to go onward. Turner had another problem, by opening himself up to the U boats by circling out in the sea, while waiting for high tide so he could cross into the Mersey Bar. On page 242, when people started exclaiming “torpedo,” it also talks about Turner not having enough time and enough knowledge about avoiding torpedoes, it might 've saved the whole ship and maybe could 've avoided the torpedo entirely.
In Stephen Greenblatt’s “Learning to Curse,” he discusses new historicism and its use of anecdotes or storytelling. He refers to the essay of Joel Fineman who says that the anecdotes “determines the destiny of a specifically historiographic integration of the event and context” is “the literary form or genre that uniquely refers to the real,” (4). This use of the anecdote steps outside of the literary and exceeds it entirely exploring what lies beyond this form. Using this in new historicism frames the events in the historical context it is set in. Greenblatt argues that anecdotes call for “explanation, contextualization and interpretation,” because they are a “disturbance,” (5).
He wanted to ditch his old life so maybe he was trying to cut off ties to the world as well. If you take that the wrong way his death may seem like suicide suddenly, but from many other papers that is not implied. The majority think that it was just an unfortunate few events that led to his death. If Chris would have taken a few more resources his life possibly would have lasted longer than it did, and using his story wrote an inspiration book. But he died, so there’s no reason to play the game of “what-if” because it could go an infinite number of ways.

While I was waiting for the writing series event to begin, and for the author to speak, I realized I had never attended such an event as this before. As an adamant lover of writing, and reading, I have never heard an author read his or her own work aloud in person. I have seen videos online of the such, but I never witnessed it in person. I had enjoyed the experience of hearing the author Yarrott Benz share something so important to him and something which he worked hard on. I have never heard an author talk about his process or the difficulties of writing his or work either.
After witnessing Lupito’s death, Lupito still remains within Antonio’s mind wandering like a lost soul not knowing the ending to his death. He still continues to question whether god has helped his spirit or if he is forever lost to wander. “It is the soul of Lupito, they cried in fear, doomed to wander the river at night because the waters washed his soul away!”(Pg. 26) This is the first placement of Antonio’s religious ambivalence. Antonio may think to himself that seeing someone die is a sin, the idea of growing up thinking that the world is perfectly put together and being restricted from reality is a sin, restriction is a sin.
The story of Beowulf and the movie are very different because of Beowulf’s actions are not noble. In the textbook Beowulf killed Grendel’s mother for the glory, but in the movie he lied about killing her for his own personal desires. Beowulf killed Grendel’s
Moreover, the critic wants to highlight a distinction between the types of interpretations of the story which can be called, the “hermeneutic” approach and the “rhetorical reading.” On the one hand, the hermeneutic interpretation “is guaranteed by the reference of the words to something distinct from them, (…). The “something different” may be the life of the author, or historical facts, (…), or some external code of interpretation” (144). On the other hand, the rhetorical reading “starts with the words and stays with them” (144). It supposes that is generated by the words alone rather than anything external to which they refer.
This lyric can be seen as resurrection because one knows how they died and when they’re reborn they already see the ending which referring to their death. By falling into the sea, allowed Icarus to be resurrected; which is the general symbolic perspective of seas and how it allows people to be reborn after
Huck, Jim, the king, and the duke traveled south on the raft for several days. The king and the duke tried to cheat people in different towns while traveling south, thinking that as they travel farther away from their hometown the people would be less aware of them. All these attempts however were futile as the people learned about their tricks and the general public “jumped in and pranced them out of town”. Huck and Jim started to get worried about the King and the Duke when they both started to have private discussions among themselves. Due to this Huck and Jim decide to ditch them as soon as possible.
The landscape of action are the actual even happening within a story line, while the landscape of identity of consciousness are factors such as understanding or knowledge that affect why the story is being told in that manner (White, 2007). Lastly, White mentions the author Jerome Bruner, a pioneer of this process, to assist White in his explanation of how texts compare to both life and engagement as writer creates his/her story.
The core theme of Ralph Ellison’s short story ‘Battle Royal’ is racism and its manifestation in the society that the author lives in. The conflict between the two cultures, black and white, the segregation and suppression of the African Americans by the whites are emphasized through various incidents. The fact is that the narrator himself unconsciously gives in to racism and as a black man longs for the approval of the white man. He considers himself superior to the other blacks. But the ‘battle royal’ that he is compelled to participate in finally makes him realize that in the society he lives he is “an invisible man.”
