Transcript of Literary Critic for Confessions by Usher

A Literary Critic on
“Confessions
Part I and II” Written by: Jermaine Dupri and Usher Raymond IV Performed by: Usher rshuU: yb demrofreP Part One:
My Author-Dependent Interpretation VISTA ONE: HISTORICAL-BIOGRAPHICAL VISTA TWO:
MORAL-PHILOSOPHICAL Note: Since Usher performed the song, I will use his name to represent the character. Combined Themes for the Vistas used in Part 1 Theme for Historical-Biographical: Cheating is one of the roughest paths a person should not step on. Theme for Moral-Philosophical: Being man enough is not measured on how many girls you hooked up on, it’s about how faithful you are with your only woman. Grand Theme:
A man will never cheat to his girl to prove that he’s really a man. Part Two: My Text-Dependent Interpretation In this vista, I combined the two songs: VISTA ONE: FORMALISM VISTA TWO: STRUCTURALISM Theme for Formalism: The character of a human will depend on the attitude that other people show. Theme for Structuralism: Without fidelity, relationship will surely end when a man only thinks about his lust and temptation to other women. Combined Themes for the Vistas used in Part II Grand Theme:
Attitude, character, and manner play an important role for the people whom you are dealing with. Part Three:
My Reader-Dependent Interpretation VISTA ONE: DECONSTRUCTION VISTA TWO: READER-RESPONSE THEORY VISTA THREE: NEW HISTORICISM VISTA FOUR: PSYCHOANALYSIS Note: I focused on Usher’s repressed emotions since in this song, it is his point of view. VISTA FIVE: MARXIST CRITICISM VISTA SIX: MYTHOLOGICAL/ARCHETYPAL THEORY Combined Theme for the Vistas used in Part III Theme for Deconstruction: Ignoring the possibilities is like ignoring the future. Theme for Reader-Response Theory: Open-mindedness is a must to be practice especially when you’re on the right age. Theme for New Historicism: A strong culture greatly affects the life of an individual that is why they end up acting unreasonably. Theme for Marxist Criticism: Always be prepared in everything that you do or control what is needed to be controlled. Theme for Archetypal Theory: People react differently because of the influence of the people around them. Theme for Mythological Criticism: Fulfilling satisfaction does not mean that you need to adulterate. Grand Theme:
Assessment, consideration of everything, being one-step ahead and open-mindedness are the guidelines to live in a better life. Part Four:
My Literary Conclusion and Synthesis Grandest Theme:
People around us greatly affect humanity but a man deserves to have free-will and it must always be balanced and must always think one-step ahead so that he will not end up hurting someone emotionally, physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Grand Theme for My Author-Dependent Interpretation:
A man will never cheat to his girl to prove that he’s really a man. Grand Theme for My Text-Dependent Interpretation:
Attitude, character, and manner play an important role for the people whom you’re messing or dealing with. Grand Theme My Reader-Dependent Interpretation:
Assessment, consideration of everything, being one-step ahead and open-mindedness are the guidelines to live in a better life. Theme for Psychoanalysis: Faithfulness of a man to his woman will prove that he really is man enough. Presented by: Elizer Syrus M. Paule BTTE II-B English
