Themes in Faulkner’s Go Down, Moses

- Themes in Faulkner’s Go Down, Moses The three main themes I can place in Go Down, Moses are the role/significance of family structure (familial relationships), the idea of property/ownership, and the relationship between man and nature. The story “Was” presents a story involving the black branch of the McCaslin family tree (Tomey’s Turl is biologically Carothers McCaslin’s son who has been betrayed by his father who allows him to be raised as a slave). It establishes a major theme (the idea of being raised by someone other than a biological parent) that will be further developed as the novel progresses (“Delta Autumn” presents a reunion between the black and white branches of the McCaslin...   [tags: Faulkner’s Go Down Moses]

Black vs. White and New vs. Old in Go Down, Moses

- Black vs. White and New vs. Old in Go Down, Moses        In the novel Go Down, Moses, William Faulkner examines the relationship between blacks and whites in the South. His attempt to trace the evolution of the roles and mentalities of whites and blacks from the emancipation to the 1940s focuses on several key transitional figures.

Man’s Interaction with the Environment in Faulkner’s Go Down, Moses

- Man’s Interaction with the Environment in Faulkner’s Go Down, Moses I found the short stories in Go Down, Moses to be long, boring, and hard to comprehend. As usual Faulkner writes his stories with no regard to punctuation. His run-on sentences are confusing and unnecessary. However, I did notice the theme of man and his interactions with the environment stressed throughout these stories. “Was” starts us off with ‘Uncle Ike’ McCaslin in his old age and tells the story of his elder cousin (and surrogate father) and his childhood with Uncle Buck and Uncle Buddy....   [tags: Faulkner’s Go Down Moses]

Go Down Moses, by William Faulkner

- Go Down Moses by William Faulkner is an artful collection of short stories that connect in a biblical fashion to create a coherent novel. Within each story Faulkner beautifully illustrates the tensions arising from man’s struggle to overcome the curse of Adam, and how that biblical narrative plays out in the South. A complex family tree plagued by sin and encompassing two “races” with a heavily mixed bloodline slowly unfolds from chapter to chapter. In nearly every story, the black characters are juxtaposed against their white counterparts, neither race can be understood without the presence of their opposite....   [tags: Slave Culture]

William Blake´s Pity based on Shakespeare´s Macbeth

- ... The only figure present in the painting that is not in Macbeth is the deceased female figure lying down. The women figure lying on the ground looks as if she is dead. She lies there gazing up into nowhere with a solid glare. Instead of the angel figure giving life to the figure lying down; it seems as if the angel figure is taking the life of a baby from her, as she is now dead and the angels are taking care of the baby. The angel figure from the horse reaches her arms out to grasp the baby....   [tags: painting, woman, lying, down]

The Prophet Jeremiah 's Impact On The Young Life Of Jeremiah

Theory X is an authoritarian concept where one assumes that individuals work reluctantly, without motivation. On the other hand, Theory Y is a libertarian concept where one assumes that people will perform beyond their duties if they are motivated and are dedicated to the overall goals set forth for them.

Prayer : The Fellowship Of Communion

- The reason I selected this chapter because of my concern for “Why we only serve Communion once a month and not every Sunday” and “Why families don’t sit down to dinner daily”.

It is the time when they can reminisce about the past and prepare for the future.

Abandoned and alone, the Israelites lamented about the destruction of their religious epicenter, Jerusalem, in Psalm 137:1 saying, “By the rivers of Babylon – there we sat down and there we wept when we remembered Zion.” Yet, as the nation of Israel hit rock bottom, God was preparing them for renewal....   [tags: Bible, Moses, Israelites, Canaan]
