From her novels that she read at the convent, Emma creates an internal dream world to cope with her lack of knowledge of the external real world. Because of Emma’s altered state of reality, and her over-ambitious sense of expectation, her only result can be her unhappiness.

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

Implicit in the word “technology” is the act of construction that involves manipulation of resources....   [tags: Kenneth Frampton, Rappel a L'ordre]
