Interesting about this chapter is that the Medusa really existed and struck a reef in Furthermore, this chapter shows how the past is shaped. But why is this the case? It shows how part of the events are excluded, others added for different reasons; this is exactly how we shape the past. But ignoring the bad things makes you end up believing that bad things never happen.
You are always surprised by them. It surprises you that guns kill, that money corrupts, that snow falls in winter. This is what Shipwreck tries to tell as well: humans are likely to turn bad history into something beautiful, for example art. It is freeing, enlarging, explaining. Of course, art is not the only way to shape history but one of the most effective ones. However, we shape the past as well by our way to tell history.
We tell history dependent on our belief, which is formed by ideology, religion, philosophy and so on. This is also what Claudia Kotte found out in her work Random Patterns?
The result was the same as the one from Daniel Lea: it is not possible to unify historical systems and to find a universal history, as our history telling depends on our horizon. An example here fore can be found in The Mountain: the religiousMiss Ferguson would tell her story way different than the rational Miss Logan.
The history telling of both woman would vary extreme by their belief. We can find the same in The Survivor. Again, there appear to be two explanations: one world, in which Kath Farris is involved in nuclear war and one world, in which she is a patient in a psychiatry. Even though the reader cannot be sure which story is the true one, again the both histories — the one by Kath and the one by the doctor - would vary extremely by belief.
Concluding, we tell history by what we want to survive, what we know, and what we think about the world e. Thus, we support those histories that fit our understanding of the world. Sometimes they confront very serious questions of human purpose, the politics of race, gender, and nationality, or how technology is going to affect our lives. The story is set at the beginning of the Victorian age. It represents a classical conflict of its time: religion versus technology; especially the Darwinian theory of evolution stood in contrast to the biblical story of creation.
Often the church and religion were under attack due to the rise of natural sciences. This also accounts for Miss Fergusson. Being confronted with the approaching death of her father, she is worried about his soul. Therefore, Barnes uses his fictional story to broach the issue of religion and Darwinism, which are fixed components of history books. By this, historic issues are addressed without referring directly to dates.
Another chapter, which illustrates the examination of historical issues, is Upstream! This chapter tells the adventure of Charlie. The reader only gets information through telegrams, which Charlie sends to his girlfriend Pippa. The main goal of the chapter is to address stereotypes, especially those of gender. It starts directly on the first page: the man goes away while the woman should stay at home and wait for him.
Through his generalization that all girls must be alike, he shows his stereotypical thinking. Notes on this edition: Julian Barnes.
