Christopher 1 Taylor Christopher Professor Evarkiou Literature 203 July 7, 2013 Team Guildenstern vs. Team Hoja In the book The White Castle written by Orhan Pamuk, an Italian man travels from Tur- key to Venice and is captured by the Ottomans and taken into captivity. After conversing with the pasha, the pasha assigns the Italian man as the slave to another man Hoja, which means “master”. Considering that his son’s wedding is drawing near, the pasha demands that the Italian slave, whose name is never disclosed in the text, and Hoja unite to construct a firework display. The interesting piece of information revealed upon their meeting is that the Italian slave con- siders Hoja as having nearly an identical physical appearance as himself. “The resemblance between myself and the man who entered the room was incredible!” says the narrator. “It was me there . . . for that first instant this was what I thought.” (Page 13) The Italian slave and Hoja as a result are in each other’s presence for quite some time as they fulfill the pasha’s order.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
