  • Pirates Galleons And Treasure Analysis

    pirates, they only go in depth for a handful. That handful includes Sir Francis Drake, Captain Henry Morgan, Calico Jack Rackham, Anne Bonny, Mary Read, and Blackbeard “Edward Teach”. Though these pirates are described more than others, details from their life are still left unexplained and unanswered. To begin with, Sir Drake is described as Queen Elizabeth’s “favourite privateer” and “her own legal pirate”, and is even described as a hero in England (Pirates, Galleons and Treasure, 2007). The documentary portrays Sir Drake as the perfect “pirate” incapable of failure, which is a biased view and untrue.

This includes when Sir Drake first tried to attack the mule trains in 1571, or when he tried to attack Nombre de Dios in 1572, or even when he travelled to the Canary Islands to attack in 1585 and lost 300 of his men due to disease (Sea Dogs of the Renaissance II; Francis Drake, 2016). “Pirates, Galleons and Treasure” also shows pirate stories being romanticised when they speak about the relationship of Anne Bonny and Calico Jack. Within the documentary, Anne Bonny and Calico Jack are shown to be lovers and while that may be true it is still not confirmed. The documentary presents…

  • Ethos: A Character Analysis

Since Superman’s grand debut in 1938 it would seem as though every superpower has been thought of. The “roadblock” of creating an original hero pushed my creativity and lead to my…
