  • Billy Budd For Their Own Ship
    768 words
    "Billy Budd, Sailor" Herman Melville seems to be an evil person; he has no remorse for any one. In one scene of the story Billy Budd shows his courage by trying to save another sailor's life. The nasty Lieutenant Ratcliffe sends a sick man up the mast to man his post. This sick sailor was very weak and could barley stand up strait on his own feet, but he was too proud to admit his illness. The lieutenant sends him up to his watch post knowing that he could fall to his death. When he does start t...
  • Billie Jo Lives
    985 words
    Out of the Dust Written by: Karen Hesse Billie Jo is the main character in this book and also my favourite character. She is basically the one that tells the story. It is as if she writes poetry and makes a book of it or tells a story through her poetry. Billie Jo has short red hair, rosy cheeks and freckles, a wide mouth and cheekbones like bicycle handles; she has long fidgety legs, narrow hips and pointy elbows. Billie enjoys playing the piano and eating apples. She was born in August of 1920...
  • Billy Pilgrim Story

    Here is some info on Kurt Vonnegut. Kurt Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on November 11, 1922.

  • God Bless Captain Vere In Billy Budd
    2,945 words
    To form simply one opinion or show merely one aspect of this story is naive, rude, and closed minded. How may one stick to one deli me, moral questioning, or out-look on a book that jumps from such cases like frogs on lily pads? Just as Melville has done, I shall attempt to arrange my perception of Billy Budd, in a similar fashion. That is, through an unorthodox practice (that is; jumping from pt. to point), of writing an essay I shall constantly change and directions and goals of what it is I w...
  • Billy Budd
    419 words
    Billy Budd by Herman Melville fits into both categories of tragedy, classic and modern. This story fits into both Aristotle's and Arthur Miller's concepts of tragedy. Billy Budd is this story's tragic hero and its his actions that determine how this story fits into both categories. The classic definition of tragedy is Aristotle's, that the tragic hero must be noble and have a tragic flaw. He must also experience a reversal of fortune and recognize the reason for his downfall. This couldn't be an...
  • Hamilton Billy

    The story starts off with a young journalist named Hamilton, who's sent on his first story in Jakarta Indonesia. He meets Billy Kwan who soon becomes his photographer and close friend. Billy actually tends to be more of a mentor to Hamilton. This you can tell in the end of the movie after Billy dies and Hamilton wanders aimlessly for stories and becomes too overwhelmed by Jakarta's crisis to continue. Hamilton is faced with a couple of problems here, one being exposed to such poverty and being t...
  • Representation Of Billy Budd
    600 words
    I am a visual learner and I find that I retain more information when I see it played out before me, but I had already read Billy Budd and I was leery of what the movie would do to my interpretation. When I sit and delve into a story like Billy Budd, I form the characters in my mind. I envision their hair color, their build, the way they walk, the way in which they interact with the other characters. I think about the crazy old man or the drama of the fight scene; and all of this is going on in t...
