The Blue Hotel

- The Blue Hotel As a recently published book on the works of Stephen Crane, it is rather disappointing to see some of the key moments left out of Stanley Wertheim's criticism in A Stephen Crane Encyclopedia about the short story "The Blue Hotel." Wertheim leaves out a key point in the characterization of the Swede and the plot of the story. This occurs at the point where Patrick Scully, in the story, persuades the Swede to stay in his hotel despite his fears and inhibitions about the Wild West by getting him to drink and not to worry....   [tags: Blue Hotel Essays]

Progression and the Structure of The Blue Hotel

- Progression and the Structure of The Blue Hotel In his essay, Robert F. Gleckner discusses progression, as it is related to the structure of "The Blue Hotel." He follows the progression of power and control in the story, as it shifts to different characters. Gleckner also follows the progression of the storm outside and how it symbolizes a natural force that will always be more powerful than human control. In the beginning of "The Blue Hotel," Scully has the power, as he "practically makes [his three guests] prisoners....   [tags: Blue Hotel Essays]

The Symbolic Naturalist of The Blue Hotel

- The Symbolic Naturalist of The Blue Hotel   This essay considers the perspective of James Trammell Cox as presented in his essay: An Analysis of the Blue Hotel   Cox begins his essay by discussing naturalism and Crane's fictional style. He suggests that Crane's technique "is that of the symbolist rather than the naturalist in that he carefully selects his details not as pieces of evidence in a one-dimensional report on man but as connotatively associated parts of an elaborately contrived symbolic structure." Basically the thrust of Cox's argument is centered around the degree to which Crane displays the characteristics of a naturalist writer....   [tags: Blue Hotel Essays]

Fear in Crane's The Blue Hotel

- Fear in Crane's The Blue Hotel Stephen Crane's "The Blue Hotel" is, according to Daniel Weiss, "an intensive study of fear." The story uses a game to show how fear unravels itself. He also discusses inner fears as opposed to fears existing in reality, and the ways that they bring each other about in this short story. Weiss begins by pointing out how Crane used the stereotypical 1890's American West as his setting. The Swede comes to the Blues Hotel with the assumption that he will witness, if not be involved in, robberies and murders....   [tags: Blue Hotel Essays]

Man and Nature in Stephen Crane's The Blue Hotel and The Open Boat

- Man and Nature in The Blue Hotel and The Open Boat      Stephen Crane uses a massive, ominous stove, sprawled out in a tiny room and burning with "god-like violence," as a principal metaphor to communicate his interpretation of the world. Full of nearly restrained energy, the torrid stove is a symbol of the burning, potentially eruptive earth to which humans "cling" and of which they are a part. As a literary naturalist, Crane interpreted reality from a Darwinian perspective, and saw the earth driven by adamant natural laws, violent and powerful laws which are often hostile to humans and their societies, and he conceived of humans as accidents, inhabiting a harsh, irrational, dan...   [tags: Blue Hotel Essays]

Blue Hotel

- Blue Hotel Many great films are based on some forms of literature. However, although they might be based on a novel or story, doesn’t mean the movie will accurately portray the work as was written. Filmmakers often exaggerate plots or add extra scenes to try to keep the audiences attention. Hollywood corrupts many classic writings, simply because there are literary techniques used by writers which wouldn’t be as effective in films. Many elements so often used in literature give more of a mental image or feeling rather than physical, thus not translating well visually....   [tags: Papers]

Having come from a Methodist lineage and living at a time when the church was still an influential facet in people’s daily lives, Stephen Crane was deeply instilled with religious dogmas.
