Blog Post # 4 (Chapters 22 -30)

Why does the Chaplain give up trying to make Billy understand his religious tenets? Based on what we know of the narrator’s feelings about current-day society, what does this suggest?

Leading up to Billy Budd’s death, the narrator already begins to give a Christian sense of relating religion to the story. Throughout the book, Melville consistently referred to Billy as the, “Peacekeeper,” alluding to Christ’s distinction as the, “Prince of Peace.” In addition to this, some more obvious then others, there are numerous biblical references for the whole of Billy Budd. A key example would include Claggart’s character, as he referenced the serpent, which persuaded Eve into the Garden of Eden. Similarly he also tempted Billy to “Sin,” by means of his mutiny accusations. Furthermore, subsequent to Billy’s death, his shipmates honored the remnants of wood on which Billy was executed on to the extent that it drew reference to the cross of Jesus Christ. The gesture of Billy Budd’s death, alone, arguably signifies the expiring of someone deemed to be innocent, which also draws connections with the “Son of God.” Nevertheless, prior to his death, the chaplain conceivably put an end to his attempts in bringing Billy closer to the state of sanctity. The chaplain sensed Billy’s internal belief of innocence, presumed that this state of mind was equally as beneficial in allowing Billy to die a peaceful death. Therefore the chaplain chose to leave him be as he bid him a tranquil final night with a kiss to his forehead. These chain of events display Herman Melville’s feelings of present-day society, as he, in all likelihood, may not be the most pious person, but rather someone who fiddles with alternative philosophical approaches.

Socratic Seminar Response

On Self-Respect was an interesting read, and unlike most other silly English readings, I was spared the drudgery, as I was able to grasp the concept of the essay and analyze it instantly. Joan Didion, for the most part, supported her reasoning on individuals’ self-respect or lack thereof, by relating her notions to abstract ideas. Examples include the feeling of not being able to sleep in peace because of the sole fact of not being happy with oneself, and not answering calls because one may have to be accountable for something. I somewhat agree with her on her comprehension of self-respect, to the extent that, self-guilt remains responsible for our actions towards others. The feeling of having to be answerable to others exhibits her idea as to what operates our consciousness, which would essentially be what influences our motives. This concept now enables us to differentiate between peoples of different backgrounds, as a great man once said, “People are the product of their environments.” Therefore it is key to emphasize the fact that the notion of self-respect is shaped by so many factors that one must realize that different people will have different interpretations of what they believe to be self-respect. Overall, after reading this piece I wondered, how much self-respect do I, in fact, have for myself? Then I suddenly realized that.. I am unbelievably awesome.

Blog Post # 3 (Chapters 15 -21)

8. While Billy waits for his fate to be decided, we do not get to know his thoughts. What might change if we were able to know Billy Budd’s thoughts and feelings? Why do you think Melville chose not to represent them? What is the effect of this?

Overall, Billy’s thoughts haven’t really been portrayed to the extent that I would have liked throughout the book anyway, and the fact that Melville chose to leave it out during the time period of his decision doesn’t draw any big questioning. But, If we were able to be omniscient (see what I did there) while reading Billy Budd, I would imagine that Billy would probably be in a state of shock more then anything else. Obviously he’s going to be somewhat frightened, nervous, confused, but judging him upon his character as shown in the book, I would think that he would be more surprised and disturbed. Also, the fact that Billy Budd has difficulties articulating his thoughts sometimes, the reason why he is in this position in the first place, shows that maybe Herman Melville did not choose to leave this part out. Maybe he is simply implying that his lack of words may also coincide with lack of thoughts, to a certain extent. However, regardless of whatever Billy chooses to think or not think, Melville’s choice of ignoring it also builds up a further sense of mystery upon the verdict then there already was. And along with mystery come some sort of anticipation and fear, all factors that make for a more interesting read. So it’s no wonder why Melville chose to leave this part out. Another key fact worth pointing out is the fact that I had said that Billy Budd’s sudden burst of violence may lead to something terrible happening in Billy’s life, two blog posts earlier, which can only mean one thing.. I am awesome.


Similar to Billy Budd, Patrick Star often find's it difficult to articulate his thoughts..

Blog Post # 2 (Chapters 7 -14)

1. Discuss the character of Claggart. How does his physical appearance relate to his internal character, as far as we know him?

As far is Claggart is concerned, the narrator paints a picture of a man who has pale skin, black hair, firm posture, and rigid bones. Let alone his character but, his physical appearance alone confirms that something about him seems to be not quite right. He is described to be naturally evil, which I find to be really ignorant. I don’t think that it’s possible for someone to be simply born immoral and malevolent because as a great man once said, “People are the product of their environments,” therefore I believe that someone or something must have caused Claggart’s crooked personality. But, as far as his physical appearance matching his inner character is concerned, they both point toward a sinister character. When I was a kid, I remember being told that the deadliest kind of hatred is silent hatred, the same kind of distaste that is resembled by Claggart. But overall, I think that it’s obvious that some sort of altercation between Claggart and Billy Budd will occur, it’s just a matter of time. Melville is clearly setting the stage for something to happen and my gut feeling is that Claggart ends up being a not-so-bad guy after all but, I’m not quite sure yet. At least that’s what SHOULD happen; otherwise this book will be dumb. But regardless of what happens next, I’m fairly certain that Claggart’s personality will eventually have a profound effect on the conclusion of the book. Also the strangest, if not, one of the most, strangest parts of the book so far would definitely have to be the moment where Billy spills the soup and Claggart walks by without seeming to show any form of discontent. It’s unusual because we later find out that Claggart does indeed not like Billy and the fact that he does not show it is kind of creepy.

Speaking of being evil by nature (Claggart).. it's common knowledge that ALL CLOWNS, HAPPY OR SAD, ARE ALL ABSOLUTELY EVIL AND SHOULD NEVER BE TRUSTED. Hence this picture

Ulysses - Personal Response

Alfred Tennyson did not originate from a relatively underwhelming family. In fact, due to his father, Lord Alfred, he was a direct descendent of one of the most successful kings of his time, King Edward the third. Because Tennyson’s father George Clayton, was comparatively fortunate, Alfred was able to embark on his road to writing poetry at a very young age. Throughout his life, Alfred wrote several influential poems that would eventually shape the poetry of the 19th century. One of his most famous poems, Ulysses is not only inspiring but, unlike many other works of his time, it has many different meanings and sub-meanings, which can enhance as well as distort the piece. In order to achieve the utmost understanding of the poem one must master the art of being able to differentiate between what is meant to be taken literally and figuratively. Therefore Tennyson can arguably be one of the best poets in history due to his ability to effectively maneuver about through the use of hidden and indirect meanings.

In the literal sense, the poem expresses the shamelessness of not exploring the world’s mysteries and instead remaining in the comfort of ones own ‘home’. After indicating the characters age by declaring he is but an, “idle king,” whom is, “matched with an aged wife,” he goes on to shed light on his past experiences such as the Trojan War. But what is found to be most interesting is the segment where he states, “I am a part of all that I have met.” This signifies that, through his experiences he has been shaped into someone who metaphorically carries a piece of the people, places, and situations he has seen.

The poem Ulysses contains an overwhelming amount of substance. Throughout the poem Alfred describes the tendency of the elderly in which they assume that they can no longer be, in a sense, an effective member of society due to age, lack of physical or mental health, and determination. However, Lord Alfred proceeds to turn this phenomenon on its head by stating that along with age, comes knowledge and wisdom, which in turn makes one all the more potent when striving for a goal before, “the long day wanes.” He continues encouragement by writing, “it’s not too late to seek a newer world,” and later reinforces it by saying his fellow peers are, “strong in will.” Regardless of the objective, however, Alfred maintains that one must be resolute in attaining success and must not let anything hold him back.

Altogether Ulysses inspires as well as allows it’s audience to ponder the true meanings of the existence of all living and non-living things. Focusing on intent rather then results, Alfred concludes his poem with the statement, “To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield,” which creates an almost recreational feeling of conquering new lands whether that be physically, linguistically, scientifically or mathematically. Hence the explosion of new ideas and thoughts in the coming years after people, similar to Tennyson, inspired others to explore the furthest most reaches of the globe.

In conclusion, Ulysses, in a way, reverses the common-man’s notion that the increasingly one may be in age, his productivity of exploration, of unseen and uncharted lands, will be hindered accordingly. Lord Alfred Tennyson has literally and metaphorically disagreed to the perception, to the point of crediting age with, in fact, a sense of accomplishment and achieving credible hierarchy. Nevertheless, the form in which the poem was written was essential in providing the sense of cohesiveness between seniority and wisdom. And if one thing is certain it would be the fact that Lord Alfred Tennyson didn’t lack any experience or wisdom when he wrote this poem.

Blog # 1 (Chapters 1-7)

Discuss the possible significance of moving from a merchant ship (Rights of Man) to a war ship (Bellipotent).  What might Melville be suggesting with this transition?
The fact that Billy Budd relocated ships is important because it sets the tone for the rest of the story. Melville establishes the potential for overwhelming hostility through the building up of events that eventually lead to his departure. An example would be Billy Budd’s former captain’s silent, yet bold form of disapproval of him leaving, indicates Billy’s persona relative to the others may be not as aggressive but, more passive as well as him playing more of a follower role then a leader. Also, the fact that Billy is practically being forced to transfer ships is ironic because Herman Melville states that the Rights-of-Man ship was named after a book, which supports the rights of personal freedoms. So this event implicitly suggests through the medium of dramatic irony that, although Billy Budd may think that he is fighting with his life to create individual rights for others, he himself is in a sense being deprived of his own for the sake of collective freedom from the French. However, Melville could also be suggesting that the fact that Billy Budd has to relocate may have something to do with his previous experiences with his peers at the ship whether they be extremely good, or bad. But the transition could also symbolize the fact that Billy Budd hasn’t quite sacrificed enough in his life yet and seems to have it to easy, therefore he is due for an ethical defeat of some sort. 

I chose to use this image because it shows the concept BIlly Budd metaphorically being cornered by reality, which in turn, consists of his own past experiences... which have lead him to this point.
