Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?

No Country For Old Men by Darnelle Berry Summary

In rural Texas, welder and hunter Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) discovers the remains of several drug runners who have all killed each other in an exchange gone violently wrong. Rather than report the discovery to the police, Moss decides to simply take the two million dollars present for himself. This puts the psychopathic killer, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), on his trail as he dispassionately murders nearly every rival, bystander and even employer in his pursuit of his quarry and the money. As Moss desperately attempts to keep one step ahead, the blood from this hunt begins to flow behind him with relentlessly growing intensity as Chigurh closes in. Meanwhile, the laconic Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) blithely oversees the investigation even as he struggles to face the sheer enormity of the crimes he is attempting to thwart.

Genre, Heroism and Conceptions of Evil in 'No Country for Old Men' by Mario Raff Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, University of Freiburg, course: Novel / Film Adaptation, language: English, abstract: There is no need to explain that No Country for Old Men, published in 2005 by Cormac McCarthy - as well as the eponymous movie by the Coen brothers (2007) - are extravagant works in terms of style as well as in their philosophical conceptions. Since both were only recently released there is still very few secondary literature on the complexity of McCarthy's ideas and concepts of human - or mainly American - culture. Yet they have aroused a good deal of discussions and diverse receptions not only in literary circles but also (and this is mainly for the movie) within the public. Not only that McCarthy plays with different genres in one work, confusing the readers expectations and habitual ways of reading in general, but he also seems to deconstruct everything we thought to believe about society, morality, rules of living and fate. With Anton Chigurh McCarthy introduces a totally unknown, a new type of character, who finally makes all attempts of moral or philosophical interpretations fade with the wind, just walking down the road - alive.

No Country for Old Men by Paddy Lyons Summary

Once a country of emigration and diaspora, in the 1990s Ireland began to attract immigration from other parts of the world: a new citizenry. By the first decade of the twenty-first century, the ratio between GDP and population placed Ireland among the wealthiest nations in the world. The Peace Agreements of the mid-1990s and the advent of power-sharing in Northern Ireland have enabled Ireland's story to change still further. No longer locked into troubles from the past, the Celtic Tiger can now leap in new directions. These shifts in culture have given Irish literature the opportunity to look afresh at its own past and, thereby, new perspectives have also opened for Irish Studies. The contributors to this volume explore these new openings; the essays examine writings from both now and the past in the new frames afforded by new times.

No Country for Old Men by Alan Schwartz Summary

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN follows three major characters: Eric Newman - an idealistic academic obsessed with the truth about the death of a left-wing poet of the 1930s for his almost finished biography of the writer; Eric's old friend Nick Burns - a federal agent with no illusions; and Odette des Chavannes - a high profile investigative journalist who is always pursuing a blockbuster story. Their objective - to recover the long-lost technology that is the key to a secret weapon for psychological warfare. Their quests intertwine in a globetrotting journey from New York to Washington, Paris, Buenos Aires and Santiago, through a labyrinth of multinational power and international corruption, where rules and stakes shift constantly and adversaries wear many masks.

Cormac McCarthy and Performance by Stacey Peebles Summary

Cormac McCarthy is renowned as the author of popular and acclaimed novels such as Blood Meridian, All the Pretty Horses, and The Road. Throughout his career, however, McCarthy has also invested deeply in writing for film and theater, an engagement with other forms of storytelling that is often overlooked. He is the author of five screenplays and two plays, and he has been significantly involved with three of the seven film adaptations of his work. In this book, Stacey Peebles offers the first extensive overview of this relatively unknown aspect of McCarthy's writing life, including the ways in which other artists have interpreted his work for the stage and screen. Drawing on many primary sources in McCarthy's recently opened archive, as well as interviews, Peebles covers the 1977 televised film The Gardener's Son; McCarthy's unpublished screenplays from the 1980s that became the foundation for his Border Trilogy novels and No Country for Old Men; various successful and unsuccessful productions of his two plays; and all seven film adaptations of his work, including John Hillcoat's The Road (2009) and the Coen brothers' Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men (2007). Emerging from this narrative is the central importance of tragedy—the rich and varied portrayals of violence and suffering and the human responses to them—in all of McCarthy's work, but especially his writing for theater and film.

The Philosophy of the Coen Brothers by Mark T. Conard Summary

Many critics agree that Joel and Ethan Coen are one of the most visionary and idiosyncratic filmmaking teams of the last three decades. Combining thoughtful eccentricity, wry humor, irony, and often brutal violence, the Coen brothers have crafted a style of filmmaking that pays tribute to classic American movie genres yet maintains a distinctly postmodern feel. Since arriving on the film scene, the Coens have amassed an impressive body of work that has garnered them critical acclaim and a devoted cult following. From Raising Arizona and Fargo to O Brother, Where Art Thou? and No Country for Old Men, the Coens have left an unmistakable imprint on Hollywood. The Philosophy of the Coen Brothers investigates philosophical themes in the works of these master filmmakers and also uses their movies as vehicles to explore fundamental concepts of philosophy. The contributing authors discuss concepts such as justice, the problem of interpretation, existential role-playing, the philosophy of comedy, the uncertainty principle, and the coldness of modernity. The Philosophy of the Coen Brothers is not just for die-hard Lebowski Fest attendees, but for anyone who enjoys big ideas on the big screen.

La Conjuration des imbéciles by John Kennedy TOOLE Summary

Par ce seul livre posthume, John Kennedy Toole gagna une place à part, et une des premières, dans la littérature américaine contemporaine : il reçut le prix Pulitzer en 1981 pour ce roman tumultueux - gargantuesque tragicomédie située dans l'ambiance grouillante des bas quartiers de La Nouvelle-Orléans. Lors de sa publication en France, la même année, l'accueil fut tout aussi enthousiaste, et ce roman-phénomène fit écrire à Jean Clémentin, dans Le Canard enchaîné, les lignes suivantes, toujours d'actualité : " Un ouvrage de génie comme il n'en paraît pas beaucoup par siècle... Il faudrait des colonnes entières pour détailler les cruautés, les trouvailles, la verve épicolyrique, la puissance de cet ouvrage. Cette audace, son auteur l'a payée au prix fort : déprimé de ne pas trouver d'éditeur, il s'est suicidé en 1969, à trente et un ans. Onze ans après, sa mère, remuant ciel et terre, réussit à trouver une minuscule maison d'édition, en Louisiane... Alors seulement les " grands " éditeurs et l'establishment intellectuel américain le découvrirent et s'en emparèrent, lui donnant, pour faire bonne mesure, le plus grand prix littéraire des États-Unis et ajoutant ainsi, par leur aveuglement premier et leur emballement final, un chapitre très significatif, une démonstration en quelque sorte, à La Conjuration des imbéciles. "
