Classical Allusions in Malamud's 'The Natural'
[ send me this essay ]
A five page paper looking at the allusions to Dante, Homer, Aristotle, and the Arthurian Grail cycle in Bernard Malamud's novel about an egotistical baseball player. The paper argues that Malamud chose to use these mythological references to show that even when one has been given a gift or talent that has been denied to most mortals, our emphasis must be on using that gift to do what is right for others rather than simply focusing on accruing glory for ourselves. Bibliography lists six sources.

Dashiell Hammett's 'The Maltese Falcon'
[ send me this essay ]
This 6 page paper looks at Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon in terms of the elements of the classic detective work it retains, and those it deviates from. The paper concludes that the classic detective story as represented by the works of Conan Doyle coddled us by giving us the benefit of not only what Holmes saw and heard but what he thought as well. Hammett denies us this, but in doing so, he challenges the reader to rely on his own intuition and his own wits. No additional sources cited.

Dashiell Hammett's 'The Maltese Falcon' # 3
[ send me this essay ]
6 pages in length. Sprouting from a most unexpected source, The Maltese Falcon represented great change within the genre of detective novels. Writings prior to the groundbreaking book were boring at best, with the same Sherlock Holmes-esque characterizations over and over again. The writer describes how The Maltese Falcon breathed new life into an era of rather unexciting sleuthing mysteries with the introduction of author Dashiell Hammett. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Homosexuality in Modern Detective Fiction
[ send me this essay ]
In this 3 page paper, the writer traces the theme of homosexuality as it appears in Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon, Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep, and Margaret Maron's The Bootlegger's Daughter. The paper concludes that during this century our society as a whole has matured toward a more compassionate and realistic view of homosexuality, growing from the perception of gays as perverts to a recognition of homosexuals as productive members of society, and popular fiction reflects this change. No sources except books.
