Assassin's Creed 2 - Discussion Thread

Post by Link on Sun Sep 02, 2012 10:20 am

Because I bought AC2 last night on a whim, I decided to make a new thread for the discussion of the gmae. Hopefully I can grab screens and such.

1) To determine the point of view in a story, one must first determine if the thoughts and feelings are being told (if thoughts and feelings are directly told to the reader, this leaves out objective). From there, one must determine if a character is telling the story through first person point of view or if they’re telling the story through the third person point of view. If it is in fact third person point of view, one can mark out first person point of view. Finally, with only third person limited and omniscient points of view left, one must determine whether or not multiple characters’ thoughts and feelings can be directly heard. If only one characters’ thoughts and feelings-- aside from what the point of view character states or infers of other characters--are heard, the point of view is third person limited. If other characters’ thoughts and feelings are heard with or without inference, the point of view is omniscient.
2) Characteristics of the omniscient point of view include the narrator’s knowing anything and everything about all characters present in the story; the narrator commenting, whether a little or a lot, on the thoughts and feelings of –multiple- characters rather than a –single- one; and the narrator exploring the minds of multiple characters.
3) The third person limited point of view is one in which the story is told through one character’s point of view though in the third person (he, she, it, they) rather than the first person (I). Thoughts and feelings of OTHER characters, meaning, not the point of view character, are made known only via inference on the reader’s part or by what the point of view character knows or infers. In other words, it is one character telling the story, and that character only.
4) The virtues of the first person point of view include a gain of immediacy and reality; opportunities for dramatic irony and studies in limited and blunted human perceptiveness; lack of an autheor being an intermediary. Conversely, the limitations include the very lack of an author as intermediary; the immediacy could serve as a drawback when having a bad narrator, and said opportunities could fall short in that they could prove meaningless.
5) The objective point of view in Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants” is used in such a way as to provoke many thoughts and an air of mystery surrounding everything. The author, being unable to comment on any event, spoken word, action, whatever, is essentially nonexistent as far as interpretation of the story goes. Through this, Hemingway masterfully stimulates the reader to think and think HARD, think critically about the conversation and what it could possibly be referring to. Through subtle hints, such as “It stopped at this junction for two minutes and went on to Madrid”, Hemingway makes things obvious yet still so mysterious so as to make the readers feel accomplished when they finally reach what the message is about – abortion. It’s an amazing usage of the point of view, really.
6) The” awfully simple operation” is abortion. It is not named as they are in a bar in France; many doctors at the time could have been arrested or even killed as abortion was highly controversial at the time. The man wants the girl to go through with the abortion and he constantly reassures her that everything will be fine. He makes everything seem as if it is an easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy situation, if “awfully simple operation” wasn’t enough. The girl however is stuck between two choices: have the baby with the man potentially leaving her, or having the abortion and…the man potentially leaving her. Neither situation is viable in her eyes. She doesn’t know what to do as the man isn’t sounding honest as evidenced by his constant repeating of phrases such as “I love you” and “everything will be fine”. As to why, the answer is ambiguous.
7) It is indicated that the past life of the man and the girl revolves around them traveling from hotel to hotel; at least within the area of Europe (He did not say anything but looked at the bags against the wall of the station. There were labels on them from all the hotels where they had spent nights.). Along the way, presumably, the girl got pregnant and they’re currently in their situation now.
Cool Hemingway indicates tone via gestures and motions that the characters use, as well as cuts in the dialogue and repeated texts. For example, the girl could be inferred to be irritated by her statements “Then I’ll do it. Because I don’t care about me.” and “Can’t we stop talking?” The characters are insincere at the point where the man says, “It’s really an awfully simple operation, Jig.” the man starts to twist the operation of abortion into something that is relatively simple when it truly and wholly is not simple. The sarcasm could be detected when the man says “It really isn’t an operation”. The extent they give open expression to their feelings is really a small extent. They do not make their feelings known all too well, though the American seems to be a deceitful character who loves to pester, while the girl is nothing but unsure of things. Neither want an open conflict; the man simply wants things to go one way while the girl is just undecided on the matter.
9) The man is very insincere in his insistence that he would not have the girl undergo the operation if she does not want to. It is hard to tell, but by analyzing this bit of dialogue constantly and consistently, “I might have,” the man said. “Just because you say I wouldn’t have doesn’t prove anything.” one can infer that the man is rather hasty (as shown by his rather rude method of retorting as well as his near nonsensical argument), which shows a hole in his supposed sincerity. Furthermore, the man is very willing to tell the girl “It’s not really an operation at all.” Why would he give unneeded information in a time where the girl is simply trying to enjoy her stay at a hotel? Relating to that, why would he tell her what the operation isn’t rather than what the operation is? That does not speak sincerity on his part. “It” is the awfully simple matter aka the abortion he wants the girl to have. He repeats his ideas over ten times. The man’s drinking an Anis del Toro by himself shows that he has “freed” himself of the girl, that he truly wasn’t being sincere in his statement “But I don’t want anybody but you.”, and that he was at the very least trying to keep her from obtaining something that could very well possibly make her happy in the future.
10) The conversation serves to show that the man is a hasty and ignorant. The girl states that the hills look like white elephants, the man responds that he hasn’t seen one, the girl then states that he wouldn’t have and immediately he comes out with a less than reputable response “I might have, just because you say I wouldn’t have doesn’t prove anything”. Right there, it is very clearly outlined the man isn’t knowledgeable of everything around him. The significance behind her remark about absinthe is that everything the man waited for, like absinthe, happened to be a waste of some sort to the girl. Absinthe, like the things the man waited for, was displeasing and boring and she compares the drink to the things in contempt, whether jokingly or not.
11) The girl’s comparison of the hills to white elephants symbolically shows that she initially did not want her child (comparison the “hills”, that is, her pregnant belly to a white elephant, an object of latent value that no one wants but is hard to get rid of). However, she retracts this statement with “They’re lovely hills” and “They don’t really look like white elephants. I just meant the coloring of their skin through the trees.” In essence, the girl is having second thoughts about the abortion, not knowing the outcome of the entire operation. The remark does assume significance for the reader beyond the characters; while most do not realize it initially, the remark essentially poses the question “is abortion a good thing?” Hemingway uses ‘Hills like White Elephants’ as the title to provoke the thinking process inside each and every sentient human being, nothing more and nothing less.
12) The purpose of the setting is to show that the man and the girl are on opposing sides of an argument. “The hills along the valley of the Ebro were long and white.” presents the hated topic which is known to be abortion. “On this side there was no shade and no trees and the station was between two lines of rails in the sun.” symbolically shows that there is a heated debate (the sun) there was no escaping this debate (no trees or shade) and that the going through with the topic (station) is being contested by two (two lines of rails). In other words, it is eloquently describing the current situation between the American and the girl.
