An Exploration of Borders in Urban Spaces - The cities we live in today are the aggregate of distinctive spaces where everyday interaction among people is limited between homogenous areas. This paper is a brief research on the ‘in-between’ areas of these bounded distinctive spaces, the concept of urban borders and the idea of edge conditions in contemporary cities. The paper will focus mainly on a traditional border in port cities, the waterfront. In the last part I will examine Thessaloniki’s latest waterfront intervention, ‘Nea Paralia’ as an illustration of a conventional edge condition and argue if the recent redevelopment addressed the issue of the edge by integrating the waterfront into the urban fabric....   [tags: Waterfronts in Post-Industrial Cities]

Victorian Domestic Architecture and the Implications of the Sequestered Private Spaces - Bertha Mason is the ghost that haunts Thornfield at night. When the sun goes down and the house falls asleep, she rises to explore the house that she is locked within, and yet outside of, by daylight. She roams the corridors, peeping into rooms to take a whiff of the domestic life that she is shunned from. She exists on the threshold of sanity, domesticity, even personhood. This is a character that is simultaneously locked inside of the walls of the mansion and discounted from the everyday domestic life of the household....   [tags: Jane Eyre, Wide Sargasso Sea, Jean Rhys]

Empty Spaces in James Joyce's Eveline from Dubliners - Eveline's Empty Spaces   It seems highly appropriate that James Joyce lived in Europe during the time of Cézanne, Seurat, Gauguin, and Matisse; throughout his book Dubliners he sketches his characters in a style that could be characterized as post- impressionist. Rather than smoothly, cleanly outlining and clearly delineating his characters' every feature, Joyce concentrates on hinting at the emotional meanings of his depictions with a rich thick dab of paint here and there. Although Joyce flexes his descriptive muscles in the Dubliners short story "Eveline" (1914,) he leaves much to the imagination of the reader through calculated omissions and suggestive phrases....   [tags: Dubliners Essays] 1090 words

It might appear impertinent to offer now a new version, and I do not doubt that the earlier one will appear more elegant than this one, which has no merit other than its scrupulous exactness. That is its justification. A preoccupation with explaining and rounding off induced Mérimée to blunt somewhat the crystalline peaks of the tale.
