The Erotic in Joyce's A Painful Case - The Erotic in Joyce's A Painful Case       The characters whom inhabit Joyce's world in "Dubliners," often have, as Harvard Literature Professor Fischer stated in lecture, a "limited way" of thinking about and understanding themselves and the world around them. Such "determinism," however, operates not on a broad cultural scale, but works in smaller, more local, more interior and more idiosyncratic ways.

Erotic Tension in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - In Frankenstein, Shelley overtly reveals romance and erotic tension, both heterosexual and homosexual, through symbolism pertaining to eyesight, although this subsequent gaze proves the strong relation of death and sexual tensions in both human and nonhuman.

Male Masochism in the Religious Lyrics of Donne and Crashaw - Male Masochism in the Religious Lyrics of Donne and Crashaw The impetus of my psychoanalytic exploration of male masochism in Donne and Crashaw occurs in Richard Rambuss's "Pleasure and Devotion: The Body of Jesus and Seventeenth-Century Religious Lyric," in which he opens up possibilities for reading eroticism (especially homoeroticism) in early modern representations of Christ's body. In this analysis, Rambuss opposes Caroline Walker Bynum who, in response to Leo Steinberg's The Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art, claims that depictions of Christ's genitalia (the focus of Steinberg's work) can only be regarded as erotic from a modern standpoint, for such representations in historical...   [tags: Christian Masochism Sexuality Essays] 3467 words

The Benefits of Pornography - The history of pornography is as old as time. The word “pornography” derives from the Greek words for “sexual slave”, “harlot”, and “description of”. Originally, it was a mean for describing scenarios of sexual slavery or the purchase of sex from women, both of which involve an imbalance of power, mostly between men and women. (Carse) In the earlier times, pornography focused on standards of abuse and degradation rather than on the goal of eliciting pleasure from the viewer.

As Rawson himself puts the matter: “As often as not ‘impotence’ is presented in Rochester as an imagined state, on a par with other erotic possibilities…The impotence is thus conceived not as a cessation of erotic energy, but as an energy in its own right, a vigour not so much diminished as gone into reverse….” (Rawson 8)....   [tags: imperfect enjoyment, rochester]
