The Oedipus Complex in D.H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers

- At the conclusion of my research and the reading of the novel “Sons and Lovers” by D.H. Lawrence, it could be said that many scholars have agreed that Lawrence’s novel can be used to discuss the Freudian concept of the mother and son relationship. Without much knowledge on the famous psychologists Freud and his psychoanalytic theories it is common for a reader to overlook such an important theme and the detriments of such a passionate mother and son relationship. This paper will try to confirm that there was some kind of an Oedipus relationship between the main character Paul and his mother....   [tags: oedipus complex, sons, lover]

Setting and Theme of Waiting for Godot and All My Sons

- The setting of Waiting for Godot is ‘A country road. A tree. Evening.’ This introduction is in itself just a glimpse of the massive absurdity to which the reader will be subjected throughout the whole play. This absurdity is inflicted in each and every aspect of the play. The reader can easily be baffled by the equally weird antics of the characters. This eccentricity is reflected in the themes, characterization, the plot structure and style of writing of the play. The reader cannot escape this eccentricity and might even be repulsed by the repetition and monotony that this play offers, but on deeper understanding, one can be poignantly touched by the actual meaning of this play....   [tags: Waiting for Godot, All My Sons]

Tragic Heroes, Joe and Chris Keller, Portrayed in All My Sons

Bondage and Escape in Sons and Lovers

Color Symbolism in Sons and Lovers

- Color Symbolism in Sons and Lovers Throughout Sons and Lovers, D.H. Lawrence uses colors to suggest the underlying implications of the events taking place. Three colors in particular - red, black, and white - seem to carry some sort of subtle connotation which reveals more about the characters, their actions, and their motives for those actions, than the plot or the setting alone.

D.H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers

- D. H. Lawrence is considered one of the Twentieth Century's greatest and most visionary English novelists. He was born in 1885 in Eastwood, a mining community in Nottinghamshire, England (DeMott iii). His father was an uneducated miner and his mother had been a schoolteacher before she married. According to England's rigid class system, his mother's marriage to his father was considered a step down, since she came from a well-educated middle-class family. Thus the vast differences between his parents was cause for "the fabric of his parents' marriage [to be] ripped by bitterness, violence and hate" (DeMott vii)....   [tags: Lawrence Sons and Lovers Essays]

This is due to the fact that throughout the whole play, she is being portrayed as a tool for tension and drama. During the beginning of the play, the atmosphere created is that of a calm and ordinary Sunday morning. Even Mother’s first appearance, has a content effect towards the other characters. ‘Well, get it out of the pail....   [tags: Papers]

Analysis of The Famous Sculpture, Laocoön and his Two Sons

- The piece I decided to analyze is the famous sculpture, Laocoön and his two sons. I decided on this particular piece for a few reasons, one being the emotion we see on the subjects’ faces, and the other being the importance for future art. When I began this research I could not have possibly understood the relevance this piece had on the art that was yet to come. The Hellenistic period of Greek art spans from the time of Alexander the Great’s death in 323 to 30 B.C.E. (“Hellenistic Period” 1). However there have been controversies of precisely how long the Hellenistic period lasted....   [tags: hellenistic period, trojan horse, greek]

- The “Sons of Freedom” are a small radical group that diverged from a religious sect known as the Doukhobors.  This zealous and revivalist subsect evolved from the Doukhobors only to gain the government’s attention for their extremely radical acts.  They have initiated bombings, arson, nudist parades, and hunger strikes, all in protest to the land ownership and registration laws of Canada.  Such obscene and violent demonstrations have caused a great deal of conflict between the Sons of Freedom and the Canadian government’s legal system and have also generated much public resentment.  However, should the State of Canada have imposed laws upon this minority group that blatantly conflicted with...   [tags: Canada]

Crime and Punishment, Fathers and Sons, We

- Brilliance surely comes with a price. Often a protagonist is, in his own right, an absolute genius, but for this gift of vision, he must remain isolated for eternity. Crime and Punishment (1886), by Fyodor Dostoevsky, depicts a poverty stricken young man who discovers a revolutionary theory of the mind of a criminal. Despite his psychological insight, Raskolnikov is alienated from society, and eventually forced to test his theory upon himself. Ivan Turgenev’s Bazarov, in Fathers and Sons (1862), pioneers the anarchistic philosophy of nihilism, depending entirely on science and reason, but ends up falling passionately in love and then cast out, through death, from the rigidity of though...   [tags: essays research papers]
