Navigating Interstitial Spaces - Navigating Interstitial Spaces “[T]he law permits the Americans to do what they please.” Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America The protection of virtue, I submit, requires an understanding of interstitial spaces—spaces where formalist adherence to rules and laws does not suffice to adequately promote virtue.

Examine the significance of blank spaces in Conrads Heart of Darkness? - “True, by this time it was not a blank space any more … it had become a place of darkness.” (Heart of Darkness) Examine the significance of ‘blank spaces’ in THREE novels of the 19th and/or early 20th centuries. The ellipsis in the titular quote refers to an important omission: “it [the blank space] had got filled since my boyhood with rivers and lakes and names. It had ceased to be a blank space of delightful mystery – a white patch for a boy to dream gloriously over.”1 Conrad’s Marlow highlights the major significance of the ‘blank space’ at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries here - that of ignorance, but a challenging ignorance; a temptation to the empirical enthusiasts of the Victorian era and beyond....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

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

Henry James and the Spaces of Silent-Speaking Words - Henry James and the Spaces of Silent-Speaking Words Henry James wrote novels by day; by night he wrote letters. In Virginia’s Woolf distinction, after the “elaborate and austere” labours of the morning, “there remained...the flying hand at midnight,” animated by restless affections and capable “of throwing out at its swiftest well-nigh incredible felicities of phrase” (Essays 204-5). Woolf’s image – of the author persistently engaged in nocturnal compositional raptures - is arresting for the series of dualities it enshrines: the isolation of the solitary, almost static figure whose writing hand - flinging out lassoes of sentences to bring his correspondents closer – yet testifies to the processes of human exchange; the intimacy claimed yet the absence affirmed by the written missive; the abstractions and physical forces of spatial distance which both threaten the fragility and are contested by the strength of sheets and envelopes; the self contained therein - incarnated by the materiality of ink and paper, while being a thing disembodied, discarnate, detached from physical being, and always arriving too late to satisfy the immediacy it craves: “here I am beating with my pen at this poor blank paper as grimly as my wretched infantile heart is thumping against my breast […] sitting here in this dreary London lodging,” so a homesick James wrote to his mother from Half-Moon Street, Piccadilly, in 1869, “I must begin a letter, or else I shall begin to howl” (MHJ)....   [tags: Henry James Letters Essays]

An Analysis of Nagel's Personal Rights and Public Spaces - ... Thus, Nagel distinguishes between agent-neutral and agent-relative values to attempt at explaining the paradox. An agent-neutral value is consequentialist in form: if x is bad or wrong then it implies that we all work together toward a common goal to reduce or minimize x. In this case, it means that it is permissible to commit x to anyone if that contributes to the common goal of reducing x. On the other hand, an agent-relative value is deontological in its form: if x is bad or wrong then what is implied is that the agent himself is not permitted to commit x to anyone, although it doesn’t govern whether x occurs to someone because of what other people do....   [tags: Ethics ]
