Martin The Warrior Essay, Research Paper

The novel, Martin the Warrior by Brian Jacques, is a book about a young mouse

warrior named Martin, son of Luke the Warrior, a mouse that fought sea rats, One

day, after the murder of most of his tribe (including his wife), Luke set sail

to have his revenge against Vilu Daskar, the stoat pirate responsible for the

massacre. Before he left, he gave Martin his sword, which had been handed down

through their family since Luke’s own grandsire lived. This book is about how

Martin travels through a land full of moles, squirrels, and other woodland

creatures which talk and walk upright. Martin goes around meeting creatures from

all different lands and asks them to join his army to fight a tyrant who is

keeping slaves in his fort, Marshank. The plot of this book is how Martin and

his friends fight the tyrant, Badrang, to free slaves. The main idea of the book

is how and why Martin and his army fight the tyrant. When Martin was captured as

a slave for Badrang the Tyrant, he was furious. Not only did the evil rat steal

his father’s sword, he beat and mistreated all of the slaves horribly! Devising

a plan, Martin frees himself and two of his friends from the Marshank, the slave

camp: Brome the mouse and Felldoh the squirrel. Brome’s sister, Laterose (Rose

for short) and her companion Grumm the mole all set out with Martin and his

friends to go get help from their hometown of Noonvale. Unfortunately, due to

the sea’s conditions, Martin, Rose, and Grumm get separated from Brome and

Felldoh. The two strings of the story carry on and tie together at the end:

Martin’s group eventually reaches Noonvale, where he returns to Badrang to get

his revenge, and Brome and Felldoh join the Rambling Rosehip Players, a bunch of

happy-go-lucky animals that made the hardships less hard, and also get to the

slave camp. The ending is tragic, and whenever I read it I get depressed.

Martin, in the end, retrieves his sword from Badrang, and succeeds in killing

him, but Rose, who he has become very much attached to, tries to help Martin in

killing Badrang, but only ends up getting killed by him herself. Also, Felldoh

died toward the end– he had fought Badrang one-on-one but the lousy cheater

called his army to help him. Felldoh, being a great warrior, killed many of

Badrang’s men but did not kill Badrang himself. Brome still lived, but found he

did not like war, so he became a healer. Some of the characters that Martin

encountered along his travels changed from being his enemies to being his

allies. The creatures changed when Martin was off to go fight the tyrant and

when he and his friends asked them to which to join fight the tyrant so he could

not capture any more creatures for his slaves and makes his horde any more

powerful. Sometimes it did not seem believable because of how they turned from

enemies to allies instantly and why they joined without even knowing who Badrang

the tyrant was. I felt like I had a similar relationship when Martin was leading

his army into battle. I have this feeling when I?m a captain of my basketball

team and I have the partial responsibility of leading them to victory or defeat.

I thought that the best scene in the book was when Martin?s army attacked the

tyrant?s fort for the second time. It reminds me about whenever I lead or am a

part of an activity of some sort, like basketball or tennis. I think that the

title, Martin the Warrior, is fitting because it?s simple and it tells what

the book is about. I liked the author?s style of telling what was going on in

the book and how he described it. He made it feel like you were actually there.

The story made me feel good in the end, when Martin?s army defeated the

tyrant. I liked this because I love the feeling of victory.
