  1. How and why has the image of pirates been distorted through time? (Heinz, Ted) (“Pirate Picture Cards”)

  2. Buccaneers History • Driven away from life of hunting • Most moved to Caribbean • Lived off the land and live stalk (Beej)

  3. Buccaneers Image • Burly, dirty, hard living men • Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, resemble Buccaneers (Cinemenium.com)

  4. Privateer History • Privateer-a kind of independent nautical mercenary,commissioned by a government to attack ships of an enemy nation in exchange for a piece of the spoils • Letter of Marque • Took advantage of opportunities to make a profit • Big problem in the 1700's, reason for popularity of piracy (Robert,Kirrily)

  5. Privateer Image • Considered heros • Respectable men • Captain Hook • Not dress up unless for battle or when docking • Captain Barbosa, hat and dress (Monkystuff) (Emrelebleb)

  6. Corsairs History • Much like Privateers • Religious • Christians Vs. Muslims • Took control over triad routes (Skipwith, Ashley)

  7. Corsairs Image • Very different from seamen and pirates because of location and culture • Why not popular in movies? • Khair ad-Din also known as Barbarossa (Vallar, Cindy)

  8. Clothing • Landsmen-long waist coat, over knee breeches • Seamen-short blue jacket checked shirt, ether long canvas trousers or baggy breeches, red scarves • Hard labour on board (www.geociteis.co.jp/.../8926/mar/n-person.html) (“waistcoat”) (National Park Service Museum Collection)

  9. Stereotype • Associated with parrots, cutlass, eye patches and wooden legs • Some characters in movies clean cut and bad guys dirty • Personality (Simchton, Thomas)

  10. Treasure IslandLong John Silver • “His left leg was cut off close by the hip, and under the left shoulder he carried a crutch...” (Stevenson 79). • One case of peg leg, considered a handicap, not proper to complete work duties • Bird (Blindkat Publishers)

  11. Goonies • One-Eyed Willy • Treasure Map • Booby traps (Movies)

  12. Peter Pan • Captain Hook • Captain Hook's dress • Captain Hook's Image (Gasoline Alley Antiques)

  13. Romantic Image • Pirates of the Carribbean • Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom (unreel)

  14. Fascination with Pirates • Fantasy • Urge to escape reality • Cowboys, superheroes, heart throbs, movie stars • Entertainment (Lubbackmusic)

  15. Music • “Weird Beard” by Mad Caddies • “the only thing that you'll finds the back side of me hand” • “Pirate Song” by The Frustrators (www.allmusic.com) (www.thefrustrators,com)

  16. Pirate Fashion • Skull and crossbones are a fad • No clear role for teenagers in American culture • Pirate-like images give youth room to be different and make a statement (www.hottopic.com)

  17. Conclusion (Angle Fire)
