These are great, and so nice to see some poetry and lyrics too! I like the fact that you included different types of societal conflicts. Your poetry is very moving; your song, very stirring. Thanks for sharing them.

I think you're right. I was too lazy last night to re-read your post with definitions and examples and I just remember that you'd mentioned something about criminals so I posted this one. But I agree, it doesn't fit. Sorry! :oops:

You're a great substitute teacher. I won't play any mean tricks on you.

Two powerful pieces...the second was particularly so. The man vs. society conflict is clear in both, and I particularly loved how you brought it out not just through the social/historical context, but also through the inner conflict of the main characters. Thank you so much for sharing these.

Bartleby, the Scrivener: example of man vs society

Postby Toni Star » Fri Jul 03, 2009 9:54 am

"Bartleby, the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street" is a novella by American author Herman Melville.

I first read this in high school and it is, I think, a good example of man vs society. It is a story of wall street and first appeared in 1853.

It is a short essay that provides an insight into Bartleby who is against society.

Barleby is a copyist, who is different from all the other employees--he is uncommunicative and repetitive. As one reads the story, one can see that he is unable to exist in the world before him...

Oooh, I remember Bartleby!

When I read it in high school, I was just so frustrated with Bartleby, and his constant "I would prefer not to."

Then I thought I'd try it out on my mom. "Jan, clean your room!" "I would prefer not to." She definitely didn't appreciate my being literary.

Thanks for the memory, Toni, and for stopping by the class. By the way, this particular class is one that was lost in the 'meltdown', and you missed the initial post, I think. A shame, because this one was "guest-written" by the very excellent Havah, while I was recuperating from surgery.

Hope you'll find some of the other classes and add your two cents' worth!

Yes, I remember that saying....

Postby Toni Star » Fri Jul 03, 2009 12:25 pm

Hi Jan,

Thank you for such kind words on Bartleby! I, too, tried those words on my Dad and he thought it was cute but disarming...It didn't get me out of work but brought about a chuckle...

Will be checking out other posts, soon..
