'Conformity and anarchy and through unusual language Essay\r'
'Ã¢â¬Å" competitiveness ClubÃ¢â¬Â by Chuck Palahniuk explores the theme of masculinity through clever characterisation, exploration of unity and anarchy and through unaccustomed language. The traditional role of man was as the head of the family unit. Looking after and providing for his wife and children in the hunter-gatherer role. What if a man has no wife and children? What is his role? What if the man comes from a broken family where he had no military chaplain? How is he supposed to live a good male life if he has no good example to draw? These are some of the issues that Chuck Palahniuk confronts on the theme of masculinity in Ã¢â¬Å" advertize ClubÃ¢â¬Â. In this essay I will explore the reservoirÃ¢â¬â¢s use of characterisation, unanimity, anarchy and interesting and crotchety language in support of this important theme.\r\nThe characterisation of the main figure is execute particularly well. The characters of Joe and Tyler are cleverly twine throughout the n ovel until the readerÃ¢â¬â¢s realisation that they are both in truth the same person. there are a lot of hints in the novel, which suggest this up until it is actu in ally revealed. Several times the narrator, Joe, says, Ã¢â¬Å"I know this because Tyler knows this.Ã¢â¬Â This could be taken as meaning that they are very stringent friends and tell each other everything or that they are both the same person. The author also refers to the idea of multiple personalities in,\r\nÃ¢â¬Å"If I could wake up in a distinct place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?Ã¢â¬Â I think that this illustrates the concept that Joe is a degenerative insomniac and changes personality in his sleep. There are many similarities between Joe and Tyler up until we discover they are the same person. They both love Marla only only Tyler sleeps with her. This provides odd moments when we realise that all through the maintain Marla has been talking to Joe as her lover but Joe has been talking to her as his friendÃ¢â¬â¢s girlfriend. Both Joe and Tyler end up expression like each other, Ã¢â¬Å"Tyler and I were looking more and more like superposable Twins. Both of us had punched-out cheekbones, and our skin had woolly its memory, and forgot where to slide back after we were hit.Ã¢â¬Â\r\nTyler starts pip looking beautiful, an idyllic version of Joe, he is what Joe wishes he could be. This is indicated in Ã¢â¬Å" completedly great(p) and an angel in his everything-blond way.Ã¢â¬Â He is smart, funny, and knows all of the interesting facts that Joe wishes he knew, like how to explicate security locks and make C4 explosives. Joe, after discovering how wordy his life is asks, Ã¢â¬Å"Deliver me Tyler from being perfect and completeÃ¢â¬Â, In my opinion Tyler starts as an angelic, saviour figure and turns into an evil change ego once Joe finds out the truth.\r\nThe expose Ã¢â¬Å"Fight ClubÃ¢â¬Â theme of masculinity is explored by examining the notion s of, conformity and Anarchy. The theme of conformity and non-conformity is examined by the contrast between JoeÃ¢â¬â¢s boss and Tyler. JoeÃ¢â¬â¢s boss who wears a different tie for each daytime of the week plays the stereotypical male role. He contrasts directly with Tyler who squats in a accommodate in the warehouse district, urinates in love apple soup at a hotel and splices hit frames of pornography into family movies. He is the ultimate non-conformist. This is the diminutive opposite of Ã¢â¬Å"Mister Boss with his midlife spread and family image on his desk and his dreams about early seclusion and winters spent at a trailer-park gathering in some Arizona desert.Ã¢â¬Â\r\nI believe this represents the American Dream and conformity contrasted against TylerÃ¢â¬â¢s vision of anarchy and pandemonium in a non-conformist nightmare. The language weft in this seems dismissive of the bossÃ¢â¬â¢ dream. Ã¢â¬Å" both(prenominal)Ã¢â¬Â suggests that the dream is irrelevant . The boss also represents JoeÃ¢â¬â¢s idea of his father. Joe believes that Ã¢â¬Å"If youÃ¢â¬â¢re male, and youÃ¢â¬â¢re Christian and living in America, your father is your warning for god. And sometimes you find your father in your career.Ã¢â¬Â\r\n'
