Great Gatsby

Great Gatsby | Unhealable Wound: This wound, physical or psychological, cannot be fully healed. This would also indicate a loss of innocence or purity. | Scoop.it
William Coverdale's insight:

The Great Gatsby is a very good example of a psychological unhealable wound. Gatsby loves Daisy, more than anything and fights throughout the whole novel to try and get her back. My archetype shapes this novel in a few key ways. For one love is evident throughout the novel. Daisy loves Gatsby, while loving Tom at the same time. Love is a delicate thing and when broken, can never be healed. Also the novel proves that money cannot buy love. Gatsby has all the money Daisy could want but she still wouldn't go back to Gatsby. Money is a psychical form of hard word and dedication, and without it this movie would not exist. This criticism talks about all the particulars that were wrong in the novel, and it discusses the archetype Unhealable Wound in vague terms.

Anti Smoking Commercial - YouTube

A commercial I put together for an Elements of copy writing class at The Art Institute of Tampa. Tell someone not to do something and they will. Don't read t...
William Coverdale's insight:

This Anti-Smoking commercial shows both aspects of my Archetype. Smoking effects more than the people doing it, and it has life altering effects that can never be reversed or healed. Smoking creates many psychical ailments that can be seen, smelt, and even heard. To go along with the psychical ailments that smoking causes it creates a lot of psychological issues. For one, loved ones can die after smoking. Another reason is the person smoking many not be directly hurt, but someone close to them may be due to their smoking habit. The video uses my archetype to advance their anti-smoking company. Without my archetype, the message would not be as strong. Overall, the video perfectly displays my archetype in many different ways.

Harry Potter: Mirror of Erised

Harry Potter: Mirror of Erised | Unhealable Wound: This wound, physical or psychological, cannot be fully healed. This would also indicate a loss of innocence or purity. | Scoop.it
William Coverdale's insight:

Harry Potter is a fantastic example of an Unhealable Wound. The reason for this is because throughout the novels Harry has an abundance of depressing moments that he cannot ever forget. These events include people close to him dying such as his parents and Dumbledore, but also include events such as defending Hogwarts and fighting Voldemort. Harry struggles throughout the series with his losses and tries to avenge all of his fallen friends and family. Towards the end of the series you get an image of Hogwarts, and how destroyed it has become over the years. Harry reflects on this and realizes that he is responsible for the fate of Hogwarts and his fallen friends. However, Harry was over all very successful. He destroyed the dark lord, and brought the world of magic back to a stable and happy place. Harry will never forget all that happened to him in his years at Hogwarts, nor will any one else. His story will live on in magical history.

Wall-E Opening Scene - YouTube

This is the opening of Wall-E. It is brilliant! "Put on Your Sunday Clothes" from Hello Dolly fits in wonderful with the spectacular space images and the cam...
William Coverdale's insight:

Wall-E is an example of a psychical aspect of Unhealable Wound. At the beginning of the movie you see earth. However, Earth is a bit different than we know it today. It is covered in garbage. This perfectly shows that if Humans keep treating our planet as they do then bad things could happen. The earth will be a barren waste land of dirt and trash. The environment can not be fixed so this is truly an unfixable and unhealable wound to mother earth.

What Hurts The Most - Rascal Flatts

William Coverdale's insight:

The song What Hurts the most by Rascal Flatts represents the psychological aspect of the archetype Unhealable Wound. By reading the lyrics you will understand immediately how this song is shaped by the archetype. Love is a powerful psychological state of mind and if it is strained or broken it can have a lasting impact on the person. The song describes being so close to someone and then suddenly have them leave. This like the title says "hurts the most". Listening to the song you can immediately gather that the victim of the heartbreak will never recover, or it will be extremely difficult.

Scarlet Letter

Scarlet Letter | Unhealable Wound: This wound, physical or psychological, cannot be fully healed. This would also indicate a loss of innocence or purity. | Scoop.it
William Coverdale's insight:

The Scarlet Letter that Hester Prynne is forced to wear is a perfect representation of a psychological Unhealable Wound. Hester Prynne committed the sin of adultery. As a result of this her reputation was tarnished, and she will never be able to get it back. Even if in the future the community in which she lived accepted her sin, she will always be known as the one who committed adultery.
