Analysis of Glory - Analysis of Glory      Glory is a movie about the fifty-fourth Massachusetts regiment in the civil war. This was the first all black regiment the Union ever allowed to fight. Throughout the movie one quote kept proving itself true, “We went down standing up.” The members of the fifty-fourth proved that they wanted to go down standing up just by joining the army. However there were many situations that proved this further, as the film continued.      During the regiment’s training period a message arrived at the camp....   [tags: Movies Film Glory Civil War Essays] 672 words

"Glory": The Public's Viewpoint - The filmmakers of Glory depict the 54th Massachusetts volunteer infantry from the point of view of its commanding officer, Robert Shaw. As shown in the film and from the reading materials, we know that the 54th regime was the first formal U.S. Army regime comprised only of African-American soldiers. After watching the film, we can infer that the filmmakers were interested in depicting the African-American Men from the public’s viewpoint. Rather than depicting the struggles within the African-American soldiers, film is more in line with how the other Northern soldiers and their communities disapprovingly dealt with the 54th Massachusetts volunteer infantry....   [tags: Glory, war, ]

The Extended Allegory in The Power and The Glory - The Extended Allegory in The Power and The Glory       Graham Greene pieced together The Power and the Glory from his own personal memoirs in 1940 after a three-year trip to Mexico.  Drawing from his own observations of a small town torn between the anti-religious laws of the secular government and the people's religious beliefs, Greene created the story of a Catholic priest being pursued by the police to illustrate the conflicting relationship between the church and state (Greene 2-4).  Greene used his experiences in Mexico to create an extended allegory that illustrates the conflict between the two world views and, in turn, reveals his own values and philosophy....   [tags: Power and The Glory Essays]

Glory - Glory The 1989 film Glory is a classic Civil War film based on the history of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Regiment. The film focuses on the courage displayed by the first black regiment in the Civil War, also known as the “Fighting Fifty-fourth.” The regiment headed by the admirable Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, Matthew Broderick, must overcome an enormous amount of adversity during the war. The film was daring for filmmakers Zwick and Fields because it was a film not only with, “vivid and frightening battle scenes and finely etched dramatic characters, but a film that shattered the great Civil War taboo-it told a story of African Americans(Chadwick)....   [tags: Move Film US History] 1891 words

Glory - Glory The movie I have chosen for extra-credit is Glory. It released on December 13, 1989. Glory is a full-out celebration of a little-known act of mass courage during the Civil War. Simply put, the heroes involved have been ignored by history due to racism. Those heroes were the all-black members of the 54th Regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, headed by Col. Shaw, the son of an influential abolitionist. Despite the fact that the Civil War is ostensibly being fought on their behalf, the black soldiers are denied virtually every privilege and amenity that is matter of course for their white counterparts; as in armies past and future, they are given the most menial and demeaning of tasks....   [tags: Papers] 375 words

Glory - Black soldiers were among the bravest of those fighting in the Civil War. Both free Blacks in the Union army and escaped slaves from the South rushed to fight for their freedom and they fought with distinction in many major Civil War battles. Many whites thought Blacks could not be soldiers. They were slaves. They were inferior. Many thought that if Blacks could fight in the war it would make them equal to whites and prove the theory of slavery was wrong. Even though Black soldiers had to face much discrimination during the Civil War, they were willing to fight to the death for their freedom....   [tags: essays research papers] 883 words

No matter how hard a person might try to escape a boundary, be it real or of the mind, they cannot evade the inevitable. In author Graham Greene’s novel, The Power and the Glory, the efforts to escape mentally, geographically, and physically are shown to make an impact on an individual’s life. Greene implies that though the rewards of escape can be seen as an attainable goal, the efforts are futile, almost always ending in failure because of uncontrollable boundaries....   [tags: The Power and the Glory] 1118 words

Literary Analysis: The End of the Affair and The Power and the Glory - ... The second is due to his status as a priest; his duty of listening to confessions and absolving transgressions has encouraged him to search for good in those that present an impression of evil onto the reader. The figure he identifies as his Judas, the mestizo or half-caste, who leads him to his captors and executioners, is treated with disconcerting kindness and understanding. His opportunity for betrayal is presented as a trick of fate: The priest thought… of how much had happened to them since their first encounter in a village of which he didn’t even know the name… If he had been asleep at that moment, this wouldn’t have happened....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

The romanticized perspective that society bases war on is reversed in the book Catch-22. The Vietnam War established the book as an anti-war classic because of the war's paradoxical nature. Heller perceives war as a no win situation. The book elaborates on the sane and the insane ways of the nation. The question is who is to determine the insane. It all comes back to the paradox that 'Catch-22' delivers. The trauma this book illustrates threatens the government's ideal of peace....   [tags: Catch-22] 1162 words

The contention, however, lies in whether this addiction may be described as glorious. Those keen to label it so need only look to “the world’s greatest war novel” Homer’s The Iliad in which war creates heroes out of men on both sides of the battlefield. It is fought nobly and bravely, and immortalizes, through song and story as Homer himself had done, the champions of either army....   [tags: The Iliad, A Long Way Gone] 631 words

The Purpose of Fate in Beowulf - The revisionist monk who wrote Beowulf incorporated the pagan and Christian concepts of fate to promote a system of monarchy where power is passed on through heirs as opposed to the system where the greatest, strongest warrior claims the throne. By attributing accomplishments to fate and declaring them to be acts of God, the author makes the pursuit of glory less attractive. This new interpretation of fate shows how the gathering of fame and glory can lead to more violence, which in turn makes glory less desired....   [tags: Poetry] 1067 words

There is no definitive answer to this question. Achilles is not a static character. He is constantly changing; thus the question of why he remains angry solicits different answers at various stages throughout the poem....   [tags: essays papers] 1317 words

Gold: The Unsung Hero - Gold is the hero. Gold is the representation of an Anglo-Saxon hero, as portrayed by Beowulf. Within the epic poem, gold, along with other treasures represents the idealized values of generosity, the pursuit of glory, and the strong desire to leave a legacy. Gold represents generosity through the practice of giving gold to followers and the kenning, “ring giver.” Gold’s role in rewarding loyal soldiers is crucial to understanding the system of comitatus that unites Anglo-Saxon culture. When Beowulf rewards one of his men for guarding the boat, the soldier’s new gold “brought him honor” (1903), and when Beowulf returns to Geatland, he “had brought his king / Horses and treasure – as a man must, / Not weaving nets of malice for his comrades…” (2165-2167)....   [tags: Literary Analysis]
