  • Crew Aboard A Pirate Vessel
    1,180 words
    DEMOCRATIC OUTLAWS? Pirates, the outlaws of the sea. If like me, the first idea that comes to mind regarding pirates is a group of raiding and plundering individuals. This is due to today's society glamorizing the pirates as fascinating characters. Historically, not much written information has been left behind.

  • Social Classes And The Fishermen
    548 words
    A number of aspects about the film, Captains Courageous were quite interesting. The first is the gap between the rich and the working class. The second is the way the shipmates could work their way up the ladder to captain. The third aspect that interested me was the very high mortality rate. Apparently this was considered socially acceptable back then. I was intrigued about how much camaraderie and competition existed between the boats and their crews. Finally, I was amazed at the father and so...
