Edward Albee's American Dream

Mommy claims, “I have the right to live off you because I married you, and because I used to let you get on top of me and bump your uglies; and I have the right to all your money when you die” (Albee 67).

His paper was a critical response to my thesis which first appeared in 1993, “The Clash of Civilizations?”. The following years saw many adopting his argument as a valid counter to my thesis.

The Last Samurai reflects and addresses this cultural dilemma by romanticizing the decisions that civilized societies make when modernizing, raising questions about whether modernization or culture can be reconciled to create a new identity with aspects of both. The character of Nathan Algren provides an excellent point in which to start unraveling the cultural dilemma posed by The Last Samurai. Algren, who is “an embittered Civil War hero disillusioned by the killing he has seen and in which he himself has participated in” (James), relies heavily on drinking to alleviate the nightmares he suffers; thus beginning the journey that The Last Samurai wishes for its viewers to embark upon, a...   [tags: Samurai, The Last Samurai, Culture, Boshin War]
