📒Fight Club ✍ Chuck Palahniuk
📝Fight Club Book Synopsis : Every weekend, in basements and parking lots across the country, young men with good white-collar jobs and absent fathers take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded for as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything.

And it's only the beginning of his plans for revenge on a world where cancer support groups have the corner on human warmth.

📒Feminized Post Masculine Men In Fight Club ✍ Stefanie Brunn
📝Feminized post masculine men in Fight Club Book Synopsis : Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Film Science, grade: 1,0, Humboldt-University of Berlin (Anglistik / Amerikanistik), course: Postmodern Cinema, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: David Fincher’s movie Fight Club (1999)1 provoked a lot of debates because of its explicit depictions of violence, the representation of a mental disease, called Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), and its questioning of today’s masculine role. The latter is a very interesting theme to which I will dedicate this essay. In the following, I will show and analyze the representation of the feminized, post-masculine men in Fight Club. Firstly, I will concern myself with the causes of this emasculation. Directionless and without any real-life role-models or strong father figure, without any wars or enemies, men in Fight Club are drawn to consumer society to find a new focus in their lives. But consumerism feminizes men’s bodies and pushes them more and more into a female sphere. Secondly, the effects of this feminization will be analyzed. Men want to re-masculinize their bodies and try to achieve this through a traditionally masculine way: violence. But even aggressive behaviour does not rescue them from their feminized self, as deriving pleasure from a fight involves both parts a sadistic, male and a masochistic, feminine one.

📒Fight Club Politics ✍ Juliet Eilperin
📝Fight Club Politics Book Synopsis : The function of the U.S. House of Representatives is to serve as the body of government closest to ordinary citizens, reflecting their needs and desires. Yet, over the past decade, the House's drift from its roots has given rise to Republicans' ability to capture control of the chamber from a 40-year Democratic rule. Factors including House rules that have curtailed dissent and more powerful party leaders perpetuate this national divide This book shows how average Americans have little say over what happens in the House, and what can be done about it.
📒Ikea Boys And Terrorists Fight Club In The Light Of 9 11 ✍ Nadine Klemens
📝IKEA Boys and Terrorists Fight Club in the Light of 9 11 Book Synopsis : Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3 (A), Technical University of Braunschweig (English Seminar), course: 9/11, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Something which was a bomb, a big bomb, has blasted my clever Njurunda coffee tables in the shape of a lime green yin and an orange yang that fit together to make a circle. [...] My Haparanda sofa group with orange slip covers, design by Erika Pekkari, it was trash, now. And I wasn't the only slave to my nesting instinct. The people I know who used to sit in the bathroom with pornography, now they sit in the bathroom with their IKEA furniture catalogue. [...] It took my whole life to buy this stuff. [...] Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you. Until I got home from the airport (Palahniuk 44 f.). As the narrator in Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club comes home from a business trip, he realizes that his fancy IKEA nest has been blown to pieces by a bomb. The destruction of his home is the beginning of a quest for identity, a process that makes him the leader of an underground terrorist organization in the end. Fight Club gives insight to a social malaise that has gripped American men, it is the portrait of the nihilistic generation that is commonly referred to as Generation X. Palahniuk depicts the life of a man who grew up in a time without great wars, without a Great Depression. Hence, he is desperately trying to give his insignificant life a meaning since he cannot give it to a greater cause. This work discusses both Palahniuk's novel and the David Fincher movie that has been based on it with regard to what these works convey about terrorism and western culture. Furthermore, the impact of 9/11 on Fight Club is examined: how has 9/11 changed the perception of the novel and the movie?

📒You Do Not Talk About Fight Club ✍ Read Mercer Schuchardt
📝You Do Not Talk About Fight Club Book Synopsis : Pervasive and multidisciplinary, this insightful exploration discusses how and why this seminal work developed, and continues to grow, such a cult following. When Fight Club punched its way onto the scene a decade ago, it provided an unprecedented glimpse into the American male’s psyche and rapidly turned into a euphemism for a variety of things that should be “just understood” and not otherwise acknowledged. Key to its success is the variety of lenses through which the story can be interpreted; is it a story of male anxiety in a metrosexual world, of ritual religion in a secular age, of escape from totalitarian capitalism, or the spiritual malaise induced by technologically-oriented society? Writers, conspiracy theorists, and philosophers are among those ready to talk about Fight Club’s ability to be all these and more.
