Byronic hero essays

The antihero also plays a prominent role in films noir such as Double Indemnity (1944) and Night and the City (1950), [24] in gangster films such as The Godfather (1972) and Goodfellas (1990), [25] and in Western films , especially the Revisionist Western and Spaghetti Western . [ citation needed ] Lead figures in these westerns are often morally ambiguous, such as the " Man with No Name ", portrayed by Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966).

If we substitute for a frog a "Mr. Goodwill" or a "Mr. Prudence," and for the scorpion "Mr. Treachery" or "Mr. Two-Face," and make the river any river and substitute for "We're both Arabs . . ." "We're both men . ." we turn the fable [which illustrates human tendencies by using animals as illustrative examples] into an allegory [a narrative in which each character and action has symbolic meaning]. On the other hand, if we turn the frog into a father and the scorpion into a son (boatman and passenger) and we have the son say "We're both sons of God, aren't we?", then we have a parable (if a rather cynical one) about the wickedness of human nature and the sin of parricide.
