Justin Egan Professor Engler EngWr 301 7-9-12 The Black River: A Literary Analysis on the Theme and Supporting Elements of Ernest Hemmingway’s Short Story “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place” The short story “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place,” written in 1933 by Ernest Hemmingway, starts in a well-lighted café late at night with two waiters talking about a recent suicide attempt made by the old man sitting in their café. Through heavy use of dialogue, key characteristics of each character are developed. The older man has a background story of his own. The younger waiter is just that; young, impatient, and arrogant. And the middle age waiter, who is the most detailed of the three, has a darker understanding of both of the other two characters.
What does the café represent for the two of them? • The older waiter is reluctant because he is obviously living with the guilt or shame of either committing something wrong or going through something bad/wrong when he was younger. The refrain expresses that the waiter does not believe in God and is not deeply religious. The older waiter understands the need for the café because he and the old man are both lonely people, so he empathizes with him. The café represents them both.
Frank and his father have an unusual yet understanding relationship. Frank doesn’t react to his father’s irresponsibility as strongly as the majority of us would. Though Malachy drinks the money and dole away, Frank did not once directly blame his father for anything. Malachy’s drinking events -coming home drunk and pulling the boys out of bed singing and yelling- was a reoccurring theme in the book, but Frank points out the good memories he had with his father (the telling of Irish heroes and stories) in almost a way that overcomes his other unhappy memories of his
Drinking moderately with friends, having dinner, he made sure however to never become the out of control alchie, as no one likes the annoying, obnoxious drunk. Over time he drank more and more by himself, becoming secluded and dependent. Withdrawing from his friends based on the realizations of his dependency, he became paranoid his neighbors would know the secret when they heard the clanking of the bottles in the trash bags as he carried them to the recycling bin. Alcohol seemed to mask, cover the feeling he had lingering inside, his unhappiness and uneasiness with himself, others and life in general. His life as he stated had just “stalled”, he was not married, did not have kids, had no legal issues and was
Brian is a retired brewer. Generally Brian is a calm man. The diving teacher is a Italian man called Berto. For Jon it's very important not to fuck up as he listen with horror to Berto.

Several people, including a Rabi and other Jews, just pass by and deliberately ignore the man, as he lay there injured. But finally, a Samaritan, whose people who were generally held in lower esteem, stopped and not only took care of the man, but put him up in a hotel and paid for him to stay there several nights and live luxuriously for a few days while he recovered. Now this is slightly different from the hospitality in The Odyssey, which sees several main characters undertake long journeys and stay with countless individuals they have never met before. Starting with Book 1 and the suitors, even they experience a highly unusual form of hospitality. Even though they are unwanted, even despised in Odysseus’s house, they are still allowed to live there, even live luxuriously, while they wait for Penelope to make her decision.
But in the end the father says, “if there had only been time to go up to my club” which tells us that the father is very self-centered and that the only thing he thinks of is him self and his life instead of getting to know his son. The son is getting more and more ashamed of his father, because of the way he behaves at the restaurants. In the beginning he was proud and he had high expectations to this meeting but know only an hour and a half later, he know that he will never see his dad again. While standing at a newsstand the father is doing it all over again. He is being rude to the seller and he is shouting at him.
I didn’t realize it until I saw the movie version of the play how big of an idiot he is. His character was meant to seem as if anyone could be a night watchman. The title in itself is ironic because Dogberry is just a drunken man who sleeps on his job. Nothing he says makes sense and he doesn’t even do his job correctly. You can tell that nobody takes them seriously, especially when Leonato shows no sign of gratefulness that he has captured two men by simply saying “go drink some wine” (Shakespeare 46) As we look into the theories of comedy for the play, it is clear that an option is Freud’s theory.
During Act II, both Macbeth and his wife put on their "poker faces" and acted clueless upon discovering Duncan’s death. Bernard Madoff, a former NASDAQ chairman, is very much like Macbeth. Madoff was known as pleasant and charismatic. Yet he was famous for being eccentric, enforcing odd office rules such as keeping family photos in simple black frames only (Gandel). Being a quiet, reclusive man, he was barely seen in cocktail circuits.
