Chapterhouse Dune Essay Research Paper At first

Chapterhouse Dune Essay, Research Paper

At first, Chapterhouse: Dune (a sequel of Dune) by Frank Herbert is confusing.

It is almost necessary to read Dune, or watch the movie. I hadn?t read Dune

before I had started this book, and I was totally confused. I thought about

putting the book down, but then I rented Dune. Everything suddenly cleared up.

Suddenly, Chapterhouse: Dune became the greatest book I have ever read. The Dune

universe is much more complex than most science fiction universes; such as Star

Trek. It is filled with alien (human) races, technology that might someday be

invented, and a story line that encompasses some 50,000 years. That is one huge

feature about Chapterhouse: Dune, there is a history that you can learn about

from other Dune books. Unlike in other science fiction books, where the back

story is the back cover. Another thing that makes Chapterhouse: Dune more

complex and more intriguing than other titles are the characters. Frank Herbert

writes in a way that you can?t truly get a grasp on their persona. Such as

Scytale, who is a Mentat. A Mentat is a human computer, able to calculate

immense problems, and have the ability to have a thing called Other Memory.

Other Memory is where memories of other people before them are implanted into

their brain. It is very hard to explain; you would have to read more about it.

Scytale since he is a Mentat, strives to attain information. But it is hard for

him to achieve this goal. Scytale is a prisoner on Chapterhouse for being of aid

to the Jews. He was ordered to be held there by Ordade, the Mother Superior.

Mother Superior is the leader of the Bene Gesserit; the last remnants of the Old

Empire. She is tough to understand. She is compassionate in her own little way,

yet totally feared by all. She too, has Other Memory, but of past Mother

Superiors. A thing that I really liked about Chapterhouse: Dune is the realistic

conflicts. The most obvious one is the battle between the Bene Gesserit and the

Honored Matres. The Honored Matres are lead by a bloodthirsty, extremely violent

man known only as the Great Honored Matre. The Honored Matres were formed 1,500

years ago after The Scattering. The Scattering occurred when the emperor Leto II

died after his 3,500-year-old rule. There is one thing that I found a bit

lacking in Chapterhouse: Dune, the setting. There is only one, and that is the

problem. The whole story is based on one massive complex known as Chapterhouse.

Chapterhouse is the primary headquarters of the Bene Gesserit. It is located on

the planet of Arrakis, also known as Dune. In my humble opinion, Chapterhouse:

Dune is very accurate in the depiction of the human mind and in the actuality of

technology. Another thing that I found very intriguing is the fact that humans

have actually evolved; while in other universes, we remain in the same form for

all time. I strongly recommend Chapterhouse: Dune for anyone who actually has

the time to read it. Chapterhouse: Dune is an extremely long book. I figure that

if it were in normal paperback book size, it would be some eight hundred pages

long. Chapterhouse: Dune was defiantly not aimed towards children. There are

some very difficult words, some of which I could not even understand. I would

not even recommend this book to most teenagers. I feel that this book was meant

to be read by adults, and some enlightened teenagers (the likes of which are far

ahead of their time).
