The Power of The Sea-Wolf - The Power of The Sea-Wolf Jack London’s novel, The Sea-Wolf, has many different interpretations. The story can be read as a combination of the naturalistic novel and the sentimental romance, both very popular around the turn of the century. London also brings into play literary naturalism, in which human beings are characterized as just another species in nature, subject to all of Her cosmic forces. The Sea-Wolf fits almost perfectly the archetypal pattern of an initiation story. Depth and interest are added to The Sea-Wolf by successfully integrating these three elements -- the combination of two popular genres, literary naturalism, and the initiation story....   [tags: Sea-Wolf Essays] 983 words

Transformation of Humphrey Van Weyden in Jack London’s The Sea Wolf - Transformation of Humphrey Van Weyden in Jack London’s The Sea Wolf Jack London’s The Sea Wolf is in some ways a philosophical text and a product of its time. The strain it puts on the reader between a social Darwinist and utilitarian perspective against that of a more idealistic one is great. Many times the character of Wolf Larsen is a more consistent articulator of the Darwinian position and seems to always be getting the upper hand argumentatively. However, it is due to a phenomenological outlook on the events presented within The Sea Wolf that the alternative becomes intelligible....   [tags: Sea Wolf]

Michael Hirst's The Tudors and Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall - ... This very obviously illustrates the King’s desire to sleep with both Boleyn sisters, not just the one with whom he was already cheating on Katherine. Again, this shows Henry’s lack of faith towards his wife. If the rest of his marital history serves as an example, it seems quite an impossibility for King Henry VIII to stay true to one woman; six wives do not a faithful man make. Faith in relationships, however, is only one half of the equation. Fidelity also refers to fealty, and though fealty is derived from the old French feauté, meaning “homage sworn by a vassal to his overlord” (Harper), it can be applied to the relationship between King Henry VIII and his court, and even the relati...   [tags: fidelity, tv series analysis]

While civilization is just a mechanism used to control the human instinct and place an order so a broader society can function; the basic human is far from controlled.

This ‘homo homini lupus’ form of instinct suggest a more aggressive side of humans with the tendencies of not interacting with people but merely using people....   [tags: Literary Analysis]
