i watched the movie
i need help with some questions
what are they?
In the early part of the story Buttercup’s kidnappers are known only as the Spaniard, the Turk, and the Sicilian. But as each of these men prepares to battle the Man in Black, the reader learns the kidnapper’s name, his history, and how he became part of “the most effective criminal organization in the civilized world.” How does this affect our reading of the subsequent battle scenes? With whom do your sympathies lie?
2) Just before she reaches sixteen, Buttercup is the envy of all the village girls. Word of her beauty reaches Count Rugen, who pays a visit to her family. What makes Buttercup discover she is in love with the farm boy she has taunted? What tone does Goldman use to describe her confession of love and Westley’s response? How does this compare with traditional episodes of fairy-tale love?
3) Discuss the story Westley tells about the Dread Pirate Roberts. How does this tale within the tale influence your interest in Westley? Is he still the same farm boy from the beginning of the book?
I recall part three the best - as you recall Westley's ship was taken by the Dread Pirate Roberts. W was told that he would be killed tomorrow but in the mean time he would act as cabin boy. And probably be killed tomorrow... after some time W finds out that the captain is not the Dread Pirate Roberts but someone who took his name when he retired. The eventually W became the Dread Pirate Roberts. I don't know how this information effects the way you feel about W. I would say the W is not the same farmboy - he is a world famous pirate and adventurer but he is still that same old farmboy because he still loves Buttercup.
I don't remember the Sicilian's story...at all. It has been a long time. I think I let someone borrow my book. Anyway, the Turk was the big guy and I don't remember how or why but he had to fight all kinds of people but he did not enjoy it. And here he was again having to fight the man in black. I think we should have some sympathy for the Turk having to do things for which he is well equipped but does not enjoy. Of course the Spaniard became a great swordsman in order to avenge his fathers death. I think we would feel bad if the man in black would stop him on his quest.
"I do not think that word means what you think it means." It's a comedy. See the movie.
