Looking Inward

- John-Raphael Straude defines autobiography as, “a dialogue of the self with itself in the present about the past for the sake of self-understanding” (Staude 249). Although autobiography may acquire many functions, its aid in understanding oneself is an important one. In particular, autobiography and narrative promote understanding of people’s lives, the world, and improve their sense of connectedness with the world around them. One of the many important purposes that autobiography serves is to help the authors get to know themselves, and to help them better understand their lives....   [tags: Self-Reflection]

- Though acknowledged by literary circles as the first writer to use the stream-of-consciousness technique in her writing, Dorothy Richardson is not as widely recognized as the founder of this style.

Brought into the world in 1873, Richardson was destined for stereotypical feminine occupations: a tutor-governess in Hanover and London, a secretary, and an assistant.

- Stephen’s Heroic Quest in Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man        ...His mother said: -O, Stephen will apologise. Dante said: -O, if not, the eagles will come and pull out his eyes.   This utterance, which comes at the climax of the short first passage that Joyce presents to us, defines the heroic quest that Stephen (and/or his latent identity as mythic Daedalus) must undertake. He is, in this instance, bound by a strict commandment from "above" (from the towering grown-ups above him, from the air-borne, attacking eagles), from the poets of the past , and - most superficially  from his elders, to perform an act of "apology"....   [tags: Portrait Artist Young Man]

Comparing the Treatment of Madness in The Bell Jar and The Yellow Wallpaper

- Treatment of Madness in The Bell Jar and The Yellow Wallpaper   Mental illness and madness is a theme often explored in literature and the range of texts exploring these is tremendously varied. Various factors can threaten a character's sanity, ranging from traumatic events which trigger a decline to pressure from more vast, impersonal sources. Generally speaking, writers have tried to show that most threats to sanity comprise a combination of long-term and short-term factors - the burning of the library in Mervyn Peake's novel 'Titus Groan' precipitated Lord Sepulchrave's descent into madness, but a longer term problem can be discerned in the weight of tradition which caused him to worr...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

The Somber and Dark Tone of The Fall of the House of Usher

- The Somber and Dark Tone of The Fall of the House of Usher The work of Edgar Allan Poe is notoriously morbid and terror-provoking. Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher”, with its melancholically eerie tone, is undoubtedly a prime example of such writing. Much effort within the literary world has been devoted to the analysis and critique of Poe’s compositions. Among those to study and analyze Poe’s work is J.O. Bailey. Bailey’s argument concerning Poe’s underlying objective is valid and presented effectively in the article entitled “What Happens in ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’”; but this short story can rationally be interpreted in alternative ways, thus suggesting Poe intends the pie...   [tags: Fall House Usher Essays]

Dick Diver's Role as Father And Lover in Tender is the Night

- Dick Diver's Role as Father And Lover in Tender is the Night       One of the most common situations faced by people in medicine is the attachment a doctor can develop with a patient. The doctor may be psychologically empowered by the weakness and dependency of a person under his care. This impulse may be emotionally and mentally misinterpreted in a dramatic and romantic direction and “the doctor may soon find himself in love with his patient”(Stern, 29), though such a situation would owe more to control than genuine affection....   [tags: Tender is the Night Essays]

A Comparison of Christian Symbols in Song of Solomon, Sula, and Beloved

- Although religion does not exist as a central theme in Toni Morrison’s work, it does set premise for a richly intertwined web of symbolism. Morrison’s novels focus on the lives of characters acting in the present day or recent past. For African Americans, events of the past are a crucial facet of culture as they seek to remember their history, the most influential of these events reaching far back into the years of slavery. Historians argue that for incoming slaves, Christianity offered a religious ground for the displaced individual, a soil in which to replant the symbols of their native spirituality....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Oddly enough, in James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, this is the case even though the story is set in Ireland around the time before the Independence in 1922. This book, one of Joyce's masterpieces set in the sometimes hard to follow "stream of consciousness" manner of narration has been hailed as both controversial and typical of it's time and place....   [tags: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man]

A Feminist Perspective of On the Road and The First Third

- Much has been written about the Beat generation, especially about the hold its radical freedom has exerted on the American imagination.

My paper will suggest that in their autobiographical texts On the Road and The First Third Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady construct a travelling masculinity in an attempt to escape bourgeois patriarchal structures without abandoning traditional patriarchal definitions of masculine power....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Comparing Colonialism and Imperialism in Heart of Darkness and Kipling's Poetry
