je passe mon oral d'anglais mardi et j'aimerais une correction de ma synthèse s'il vous plaît.
Merci pour vos réponses.
I am going to talk about the notion of myth and heroes. First of all i would like to give a quick definition of that notion. A hero is a person admired for his achievements, noble qualities and great courage. They can be fictional like Superman, Batman and others…But here, we shall be interested at hero we studied in class, the cowboy. And the myth is a story about heroes, it can be a popular belief or a tradition or a false notion.
In class, we studied the representation of the cowboy. We have seen what the original cowboy and cowboy imagined by modern man. It is difficult to define the cowboy because there is no single type of cowboy. There are several interpretations of the cowboy.
What have the different representations of the cowboy?
In the 20th century, we are presented with a cowboy as a simple farmer raising horses. Through art, it only shows good pictures of the cowboy. In class we saw two paintings, The Slick Ear, Charles Marion Russell (1914); on this one we see the brutality, violence and power of the cowboy. It gives the impression of power and bravery even in difficult situations. But this is not real life cowboy because this situation rarely happens. The artist chose this to show a cowboy as a strong and heroic man. The second painting we saw was The Roping, William Robinson Leigh (1914). In this painting, the artist depicts a young cowboy with a good physical shape and that their work appears agitated and technique. And the table it looks like the cowboy is dangerous because he carries a gun. There is also a romantic aspect of the cowboy as the artist chose the photograph which shows an impressive cowboy other side with his hand turning a rope.
Today cowboy is completely disfigured. Everyone interpreted as he wants for purposes political and others. The theatre also interprets it in his own way. The notion of myth is much set in advance. The entry appears much like a cowboy hero thanks to cinema that can give him the image he wants. At the end of the 20th century, the authors try to show another image of the cowboy, as in the text Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx (1997). You can see cowboys, each Married with children, but they are homosexual. This picture could not show before. The cowboy was stereotyped to society a cowboy is a strong man with bravery, but finally it is like any man.
Finally, the cowboy never really concrete picture. In the early 20th century, artists give image of a hero. The story of the cowboy is a myth and will remain a myth because we do not really know what a true cowboy, each generation shown as he wishes. At the end of the 20th century was a cowboy completely modernized and unveiled so you do not know which to believe because everything remains both myths.
