In ‘All the Pretty Horses’ Luis states ‘among men there was no such communion as among horses and the notion that men can be understood at all was probably an illusion’, by this he means the relationship man has with nature is totally unique, it is sacred; the relationship between men is a misapprehension. In some respects the reader may agree with the statement because it is true, man’s relationship with animals and nature is fairly simple compared to man’s relationship amongst each other which is far more complex due to conflict of opinion and other complications. John Grady Cole’s relationship with Alejandra faced much turmoil and complication, one of the biggest issues they faced was the fact Alejandra’s family condemned their relationship and forbid her to be with him. To a certain extent John’s romance with Alejandra mirrors Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in respects to their forbidden love, however their story does not end in tragedy. Wordsworth shows nature to be more of a companion for man in ‘The Solitary Reaper’.
This division brings out the concept of heroes which are often cowboys, marshals or skilled gunfighters with a set of well-defined morals. The most noticeable of these westerns frequently featured John Wayne as the fearless cowboy who unmistakably saves the day. These aspects state that “Leone may admire Hollywood westerns, but he does not believe in the dreams they embody” and I will analyse these aspects in the following paragraphs beginning with the morally corrupt characters.

To conclude, Sergio Leone Spaghetti Westerns was grotesque during its release because of his unique style of storytelling.
This not only was disloyal to Helios, but also Odysseus allowing his men to do this put them in danger because Helios called upon the gods and said, “O Father Zeus and gods in bliss forever, punish Odysseus and his men” (Book 12). He did manage to squeeze some heroic acts into his journey like saving his family and friends from the suitors, but his wrongdoings still trumped his good deeds. He not only gave into those temptations, but he also was an incredibly narcissistic man. In The Alchemist, Santiago lost his sheep and money and still managed to get over it and continue on his journey without any misdeeds. However Odysseus, was too conceited to see past the urges and do the right
The stagecoach driver is the last of these unique characters. Typically, he is charactered in ‘B' westerns as being filthy, blockheaded and offensive. Despite his crackled voice and foolish nature, the stagecoach driver was anything but these descriptions. Granted, at times he may not have said the smartest of things or have been the bravest of men during the film, but he does come off as a sensible good minded man. Every character of Ford's Stagecoach was derived from the ‘B' westerns to years before.
Jonny Depp’s character stepped into the role of being an outlaw accidentally. The use of violence is prevalent in the film, which fits the Western genre, yet at the same time, the use of guns and violence is always awkward. It’s as though it’s a foreign concept instead of a display of machismo and pride as in most Westerns. The film also has minimal displays of women and their contribution of adding a dynamic of lust and love in the testosterone driven Western genre. This film does not focus on William Blake having any attachments to family or a fiancé.
An example from “About Men”, “...gentle with animals and rough on women- but rather, that they don’t know how to bring their tenderness into the house and lack the vocabulary to express the complexity of what they feel” (6). This perspective of the cowboy is a misconception, because of the statement “rough on women”. The cowboy cannot be “rough” on women, because they live in isolation, therefore this is a misconception. Being close to a group and knowing that they are being categorized by stereotypes is difficult to believe. Knowing the whole story of the group will change your
This story represents characters who fail to learn from their past experiences and mistakes. The characters in this book are static, starting with Jay Gatsby, Tom Buchanan, Daisy Buchanan, and Nick. In the Great Gatsby, the characters do not change their morals or their personalities, however, a few who changes is because of the situations they are forced to go through. The Great Gatsby is not moral because the characters are static. All the characters in the Great Gatsby are immoral since none engages in positive actions or behaviors.
Moreover, he is a good husband, a powerful military leader, and also a caring friend. Brutus does have his weakness also and that is, making bad decisions. His biggest bad decision made is not to kill Antony, and that leads to his downfall and death. Unfortunately, Brutus is torn between his loyalty to Caesar and his allegiance to the state. He emerges as the most complex character in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar and also the play’s tragic hero.
As for a misconception, is a view that is incorrect based on untruths. It is an assumption that a person or group does or has because he or she are apart of the group, but it isn't exaggerated for anything. Gretel Ehnrlich in the article About Men, sheds light on stereotypes by stating, “Instead of the macho, trigger-happy man our culture has perversely wanted him to be, the cowboy is more apt to be convivial, quirky, and soft hearted”(1). This shows how groups for people are stereotyped whether it be from the movies or the posters that group is seen on, such as the
