Transformation and Mixture in Moby-Dick - Missing Works Cited Transformation and Mixture in Moby-Dick Classroom discussions of Moby-Dick often result in a heightened awareness of Melville’s depictions of duality in nature; for example, the contrasting sky and sea respectively represent heaven and hell and the foul-smelling whale in Chapter 92 produces a fragrant and valuable substance called ambergris. But interpreting Melville’s Moby-Dick only as an exercise in duality limits the scope of this complex novel. Melville’s contemporary, Margaret Fuller, also seems aware of the confining notion of duality and states in Woman in the Nineteenth Century: Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism....   [tags: Moby Dick Melville] 1331 words

One also should note that all of this "taming" and these other wild events are taking place in the psyche of Harry Haller, not in reality.

The Cruel Transformation in Oedipus the King - The Cruel Transformation in Oedipus the King      When we look in the mirror, do we see what other people see or do we see what we delude ourselves into believing is the truth?  Self-realization is a complicated concept, one which many Greek dramatists used in order to clarify the themes of their tragedies.  In Oedipus the King, Sophocles ties Oedipus’ journey to self-realization with the main theme of the story.  As Oedipus slowly begins to realize his true self, he transforms from a proud and heroic king into a tyrant in denial into a scared, condemned man, humbled by his tragic fate.    In the beginning, Oedipus is portrayed as a confident, powerful hero.  His bravery and worth are proved when the reader learns how he solved the Sphinx’s riddle.  Even though Oedipus was not a native Theban, he chose to answer the Sphinx’s riddle in spite of her threat of death to anyone who answers incorrectly.  Only a man like Oedipus, a man possessing tremendous self-confidence, could have such courage.  When Oedipus succeeds, freeing the city from the Sphinx's evil reign, he becomes instantly famous and known for his bravery and intelligence.  A temple priest reveals the respect the Thebans have for their king when he tells Oedipus, "You freed us from the Sphinx, you came to Thebes and cut us loose from the bloody tribute we had paid that harsh, brutal singer.  We taught you nothing, no skill, no extra knowledge, still you triumphed" (44-47).  Here, Oedipus' bold actions seem to be a blessing, a special gift from the gods used to benefit the city as a whole.  Indeed Oedipus is idealized by the Thebans, yet at times he seems to spite the gods, assuming authority that normally belongs to them.  For example, he pompously tells the Chorus, which implores the gods for deliverance from the city plague, "You pray to the gods....   [tags: Oedipus the King Oedipus Rex]

American culture has embraced many aspects of Tibetan culture in a rather superficial manner, but upon further inspection, it becomes apparent that these particular aspects have been embraced because they represent what is most important to Tibetans: their seemingly endless struggle for political freedom from an oppressive Chinese rule, the religious and political role of their charismatic leader, Tenzin Gyatso, and the role of religion in everyday life....   [tags: Buddhism Religion Papers]
