’amour Essay, Research Paper
This dissatisfied critic meant that there shouldn’t be any deadlines set by people
who aren’t actually writing the book. This book is actually a good reason that there
shouldn’t be any deadlines. The book was nearing the deadline but wasn’t finished yet so
the author, Louis L’Amour, just ended it so that he could meet his deadline. Basically that
there should not be any deadlines so that the author has pleanty of time to complete the
book, completley free of any questions to the reader.
In the novel Last of the Breed by Louis L’Amour, there are many incomplete
story-lines. For example there is the problem of dealing with Ostap, do they find out it
was he who had let Joe Mack free? Next what of Joe Mack himself? Did he make it to
America, to Talya? And finally what happened with Arkady Zamatev, was he demoted,
was he completely removed from service, or was he killed by Joe Mack?
First dealing with Ostap. Did they find out that he had been the one to pull the
pin from the door or Joe Mack’s prison, or did they just think that he had some-how
escaped? If they did suspect Ostap then what would they do to him? Would they
interrogage him or just kill him right away? Let’s discuss some of the possibilities. If
they did somehow find out it was him then they would definitley punish him until he
could not take it any more and kill him self or they killed him. If they thought that he had
somehow escaped then Alekhin would lose his reputation and Zamatev would also lose
something, probably his importance.
What of Joe Mack? Did he finally escape through the Bearing Strait, or did he
stay and try to reunite with Talya? First if he did escape through the Bearing Strait, then
he would have been in Alaska, and safe enough that he would not have to worry about
being hunted. Which brings up another problem. Would he stay hidden from the world,
or would he betray himself and expose himself to the world. But for Talya. He could
have stayed and tried to get to the sea he told her of to meet her and to take her to
America. Or did he delay meeting Talya, back track, kill Zamatev, and then escape again.
In which case he meets Talya and has to escape with her again to the Bearing Strait.
Arkady Zamatev, the colonel to be. What of him? What could there been of him
after “the American” had reuined his reputation. There could have been nothing and the
same friend that warned him of the dangers of “the American” would be the same one
who told him of his resignation. Or could he so upset about the escape, twice, that he
committed suicide in his tiny little office. I dunno it’s up to you on this one but maybe
this’ll be more than a five paragraph essay thing.
So there are just a few ways that the book did end without warning, incomplete if
you will, and a few ways that they could end. And there you have it a five paragraph
essay thing about the incomplete story-lines and the ways that they could have ended.
