Create a well-formatted introductory paragraph.
An introductory paragraph for a paper about "The Dark Knight:" There have been many interpretations of the Joker within the Batman franchise, but perhaps the most compelling portrayal of the notorious villain can be found in The Dark Knight. The character of the Joker in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, as played by the late Heath Ledger, is one shrouded in mystery, possibly more than the Batman himself, but with one obvious lesson to teach us: the nature of evil. Through out the film, the Joker exhibits his concept of evil through his actions and words. The Joker shows that the evil in the world is relative to the good, that an evil nature is preexistent in everyone at some level, and that evil itself is more of an attitude rather than an action.
Consider a theme within the novel "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger. Examine this theme with examples from the text.
The theme of "innocence" is prevalent in the novel Catcher in the Rye. When main character Holden Caulfield becomes fixated with his former neighbor Jane Gallagher after learning his roommate will be taking her out on a date, a glimpse of Holden’s preoccupation with the idea of innocence is revealed. When talking about his previous relationship with Jane, Holden says, “I used to play checkers with her all the time…She wouldn’t move any of her kings…She’d just leave it in the back row” (p. 41). The symbolism of the checker pieces represents Jane’s innocence, and her tendency to keep all of her kings in the backrow is representative of the lack of corruption she has allowed herself to experience. Holden continues to show signs of concern for Jane’s innocence, saying, “I kept thinking about Jane, and about Stradlater having a date with her and all. It made me so nervous I nearly went crazy. I already told you what a sexy bastard Stradlater was” (p. 44-45). Holden is aware of his roommate Stradlater’s promiscuity and becomes very protective of Jane, not wishing for her to corrupted by Stradlater’s character, which Holden describes in various ways like “a phony kind of friendly” (p. 34), “madly in love with himself” (p. 36), and “too conceited” (p. 44).
